"A terrorist is on American soil... can he be found and stopped?"

Fresh Fiction Review

Total Control

Romance Suspense | Thriller Terrorism

Navy SEAL Jake Heath is not used to failure. He’s interested in FBI Agent Alexa “Lexie” Mays but she’s ignored all of his calls until he walks into O’Malley’s after an op and sees her waiting on him. Lexie wants Jake’s help as she needs assistance locating a known terrorist who is on American soil, but it has to be under the radar. Jake isn’t supposed to freelance and Lexie admits her current boss isn’t on board with this plan, but Jake is finding it hard to resist spending time with Lexie. Can they locate the terrorist even as sparks are igniting between the two of them?

TOTAL CONTROL is the fourth book in the Alpha Crew series but can easily be read as a standalone. Readers have met Jake and Lexie in earlier books, but Laura Griffin provides enough character development and history that it’s easy to enjoy TOTAL CONTROL if it’s your first introduction to either character. Each story in the series is only loosely connected, although I can’t imagine reading just one Laura Griffin book and not wanting to read them all!

I’ve been hoping for Lexie’s story as she’s seemingly standoffish but very professional and determined to do the right thing. I like the glimpses we get into her more rebellious side in TOTAL CONTROL. Jake is a good match for her as he’s willing to take a few chances while still getting the job done. The sparks fly hot and heavy between them, even as Lexie tries to resist him. My only complaint about TOTAL CONTROL is that the ending came too quickly as I wanted a bit more.

TOTAL CONTROL is a fast-paced tale full of intrigue and action. Laura Griffin is a master of the romantic suspense genre, generating the right touch of romance and heat with plenty of suspense and action. If you love romantic suspense jam-packed with action, then look no further than TOTAL CONTROL!

The New York Times bestselling author of Desperate Girls and Touch of Red returns to her sizzling Alpha Crew series with this fourth thriller filled with “scorching-hot chemistry” (Kirkus Reviews) featuring a Navy SEAL who meets his match in a fierce FBI agent as they work together to take down a dangerous terrorist. 

Navy SEAL Jake Heath has his eyes on Alexa Mays. The FBI Agent is whip smart and hot as hell, but she won’t give him the time of day. So, when she calls him out of blue, he thinks his luck has changed.

But instead of meeting up for a romantic dinner, Alexa needs Jake for a very different reason. Her counterterrorism team is hot on the heels of the extremist that Jake’s task force has been tracking for months, and now he’s on American soil. The only way she can take him down is with Jake’s help.

Alexa knows Jake is tough and relentless...and that the chemistry between them is electric. Although she’s risking her heart—and maybe even her career—by bringing him onto the mission, she doesn’t have another choice. Together, they’re an unstoppable and powerful team.

As the hours tick by and a lethal enemy gets closer to launching an unimaginable attack, Alexa and Jake need to fight fire with fire before the clock runs out. The only question is: will their own flames get in the way?
