BOOK REVIEW: OUT OF THE SHADOWS BY GERI FOSTER
Geri Foster is one of my BFFs and a critique partner, so you might think I’m biased. Perhaps, but I believe other reviews agree with me that this series is top notch. Here’s my review:
Brody Hawke’s best friend is A.J. Roddio. When they were in Afghanistan, A. J. saved Brody’s life. Now, A.J. has been held prisoner in a Mexican hacienda, and officials deny he is there. Their boss, Frank Hamilton of Falcon Securities, has exerted pressure on every diplomat he can contact. The situation grows desperate for A.J. No one knows his health or how he’s been treated. Is he even still alive?
Brody is not one to leave a man behind, but especially not his best bud who saved his life. He’s determined that he will get A.J. out of whatever hell he’s in and bring him home. He just needs a plan. Brody is a bit of a loose canon and more of a loner than his employer would prefer. Still, Brody is good at his job. At least, he always has been before.
His current strategy is to kidnap the woman he believes was the lover of the man holding A.J. Using her as bait, he will lure the scum into the open, fake an exchange for A.J., keep the girl, and escape. Sounds like a plan. He knows his escapade will ruin his own career, but he is not about to desert A.J.
CIA agent Kate Stone was on the mission in Afghanistan in which she lost men. She knows there was something wrong, and has been working out the logistics. Intel she's received has almost provided the key and she is close to solving the puzzle. Unfortunately, Brody kidnaps her from her home in the middle of the night. He insists he will have her safely home by daylight.
Once they reach the desert for the rendezvous Brody arranged, things go crazy. I can’t give more without giving spoilers, but the action is non-stop—except for the hot love scenes. Kate and Brody uncover that an assassination of the President of the USA is underway. Can they rescue A.J. and stop the assassination in time? Can Brody and Kate handle the love they discover along the way?

I give this book a 5 out of 5 for romance, suspense, action, and enjoyment. The books in this series stand alone, so you don’t have to worry about reading them in the order in which they were released. Just grab them and start reading. You’ll be glad you did.
