The Captive (Griffin Force #1)

Buy: The Captive

When you get a call from your government asking you to help head a task forced to rescue an American Diplomat, you can’t turn it down.  However, there’s a little glitch; you are now the personal babysitter for a very head strong and ambitious woman.  Jake and Mya are both very strong and independent people and now they must shake that off and work together to save an innocent man and woman from their kidnappers.  Can they let go of their dislikes and their prejudice’s to complete the mission?

I have to get this off my chest: I couldn’t get past Mya’s high handed personality.  She was draining and annoying. I get tired of women that push themselves and act like they deserve more than they do, acting as if they always have something to prove.  In what world does a lawyer have experience with the dangerous terrorist situation that they were going into?  She’s with a team, many who are former SEALs and she’s demanding to be in charge?  She is always throwing fits and acting like a child not getting what she wants.  She’s with professionally trained military men, and she keeps getting upset when Jake doesn’t say please and thank you. He’s there for her protection, not to baby her.  I was really hard for me to stick with this book.  I did stick with it and it did get a little better, but it wasn’t one of my favorite books to read.

First (and Last) Christmas Date by Jennifer Griffith

Juliet Law and Tag McClintock had the worst luck on their first date back in high school and it ended in a promise that there would be a second date….in ten years. What are the chances that Tag McClintock shows up ten years later with a promise of a date and with only their luck could things go just as bad or even worse. Can Tag and Juliet get past their luck and find love?

This wasn’t my favorite anthology that I’ve read, but the stories are quick and easy reads. Couples are learning to trust again, learning to find love and willing to get through challenges for each other. They are sweet romances that show that there can be happily ever after if you only work for it. These are some of my favorite authors and I did enjoy reading some from new authors that I have been introduced to before.
