Striking Distance by Pamela Clare





TV reporter Laura Nilsson, known as the “Baghdad Babe,” spent eighteen months in an Al-Qaeda compound after being kidnapped live on the air. Two years later, she’s still wondering why.

No mission in Javier Corbray’s fourteen years as a Navy SEAL affected him the way Laura’s rescue did. No woman had stirred his protective instincts the way she did. And he wants her more than he’s ever wanted anyone.

As Laura and Javier’s passion ignites, so does Laura’s need to discover the mystery of her past. Especially when she learns that her abduction was not random—and that she’s still a target for a killer with an impenetrable motive. Now Javier will have to rely on his skills to keep the woman he loves from being struck down before she dares uncover the truth.
I have never been kidnapped and tortured by terrorists but I felt an instant and deep connection with Laura Nilsson. Her strength and courage bought me to tears. I couldn’t stop reading this book, from the action packed first page I just kept going. Javier Corbray is larger than life and I just went all weak in the knees for him, so I’m grateful I was sitting down to read. I’m a sucker for an Alpha male in a uniform with a protective streak and a strong lady to balance him. 

Laura and Javier are perfect for one another. This was the first I-Team book I read and I have to say it will not be the last. I’m going back to read them all from the beginning and then I will read this one again just for the fun of it. Every person introduced in this story fascinated me and I loved how the author brought everyone to life so vividly by balancing their personalities with the storyline and setting.
