My code name is Virgo. The stars say I’m practical, honest, stubborn as hell.
Guilty as charged.
Zodiac Tactical is the company that gave me a second chance. We guard, protect, rescue...eliminate the threat when nobody else can. And as a former SEAL, I’m good at those things. Good with weapons, good with missions.
But with people...not so good.
So when a gruesome enemy takes Bronwyn Rourke, one of Zodiac’s newest young recruits—with blue eyes that take up nearly her whole damn face—I shouldn’t take it personally. Shouldn’t allow her to consume my every thought and become my only mission.
They took her because they thought she was alone. Easy prey. That no one would fight for her.
They were wrong.
My code name is Virgo. And I will grind my enemy to dust to bring her home.
•••USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author Janie Crouch brings you that story you've been looking for to escape everyday reality—romantic suspense that will leave you breathless. She needs a hero. He'll have to remember how to be one. Dive in today!
If you read Code Name Aries (and you should), then you already know a little bit about the main characters in Code Name Virgo. Sarge gives off the grumpy, solitary vibe, but he is determined to discover what happened to Bronwyn and get her back. Bronwyn has not had an easy time in life, but her tether to Sarge is what keeps her going.
The story is packed with action and danger which will keep you flipping pages. There is a lot of suspense, and sometimes it gets a bit unrealistic. Now, I know this is fiction. I read books about shifters all the time. But, this book kind of of gets a bit into the weird with the things the bad guys are doing. But, I accepted it and sort of tried to move past it because honestly, its not the focus of the book. The story really focuses on Bronwyn-before, during, and after her ordeal. Her and Sarge have a bond that is unbreakable and both draw strength from that. I liked their relationship, but I didn’t love it. I can’t figure out why exactly, but I just didn’t totally ship these two I guess.
If you love a heroine who never stops fighting for herself, you will love Code Name Virgo because Bronwyn will give you all the ‘girl power’ vibes and provide a hero who sees her as his equal in every way.
