Is the woman he once loved…

The traitor they’re searching for?

Former Special Forces soldier Jace Eakin must find the mole inside Omega who’s leaking intel to a terrorist mastermind. Despite their complicated history and the fact that she is keeping a secret, he can’t believe it’s SWAT team leader Lillian Muir. As they give in to long-denied passion, Jace vows to protect Lillian with his life. But he’s been wrong about her before…

Armed Response is Lillian’s story and I knew it would be heartbreaking! Lillian is the only female member of the SWAT team and she obviously has baggage. Also, at the end of book 4 you learn that there is a chance she might be the mole! We start off with Ren calling in an old military buddy to help infiltrate the SWAT team and find the mole. This military buddy? He was also Lillian’s best friend and first love from her childhood.

Lillian’s backstory is gut wrenching for sure-foster kid, illegal gang activity, etc. The one bright spot was Jace. They planned to join the military together and get the hell out of Tulsa. But, on the day they were to leave, she changed her plans and he left without her. Now that they are thrown back together, Lillian is terrified all her secrets will come out. Not only is she having to deal with this personal crisis, but Damien is planning something major for the LESS summit and she needs to keep her head in the game.

Blending a second chance romance with a terrorist plot is exactly why I love Janie Crouch. Both these themes blend seamlessly to create a compelling story and dynamic characters. And the plot twist at the end? So did not see that coming! Armed Response is perfect for readers who want a fairly quick binge read with heart and danger!
