GOING DARK by Monica McCarty is the first book in The Lost
Platoon series. This romantic suspense novel is packed
full of suspense, action, and steamy hot romance. I was hooked
from the first page and simply could not put this down. You
will enjoy this drama filled romantic suspense as the two main
characters take you on a wild ride full of ups and downs.
McCarty has written an intense story with characters that
develop with clarity and detailed backgrounds that is needed to
make this story over the top. As you read from page to page you
will experience a wide range of emotions from action packed
thrilling suspenseful scenes to steamy swoon worthy romantic
love scenes that are sure to steam up your glasses.
I like that
this book allows you to get to know the members of SEAL Team
Nine. I really cannot wait to find more out about this team and
read about their stories in the books to come. McCarty is a
very detailed and descriptive writer that makes even the
smallest of things seem so vivid and realistic. You will want
to reach out and touch what she is describing. The world the
author has created is very relatable and is a world that is
easy to get lost in. I like how there are supporting characters
that are introduced and you are allowed to see a glimpse into
their lives. I did find this book to be an easy, fast read
overall story is just so interesting making it easy to get
wrapped up in all the drama. I look forward to reading the next
book in this series I just wish I did not have to wait so long
for that book to be published. Overall, I found this to be a
great read that I highly recommend.
The members of a top secret SEAL Team can’t keep their
passion under wraps in this thrilling contemporary romantic
suspense series from New York Times bestselling
author Monica McCarty.
Like Rome’s Lost Legion, a SEAL platoon goes on a mission
and vanishes without a trace.
After walking into a trap on a covert op in Russia, the men
from top secret SEAL Team Nine are presumed dead. Not
knowing whom they can trust, and with war hanging in the
balance, the survivors must go dark and scatter around the
Marine ecologist Annie Henderson joins her new boyfriend on
a trip to the Western Isles of Scotland to protest a
hazardous offshore drilling venture. When she realizes that
she may be swept up in something far more dangerous than
she’d intended, there is only one man she can turn to. . . .
She and the mysterious but sexy dive boat captain haven’t
exactly gotten off to the best start, but something about
his quiet confidence makes her think that he’s the kind of
man she can depend on. Because he’s gruff and guarded, she
can tell Dan Warren has secrets. But she could never imagine
how high the stakes are for him to keep his cover, even as
he risks everything to protect her. . . .
