I don’t always expect much of these freebies, Call to Honor is a really good one! Often the best for this feature are the first book in a series by a known to me author, which this is. Romantic suspense is a favorite genre for me, also.

The characters here were what I enjoy most – strong, realistic issues and lives, and honest with themselves. I loved their growth as people during the situations and as they dealth with their personal issues. I adored the child, Nathan; he added so much emotion to the story. The friends and coworkers of the main couple were also well developed, feeling like real people instead of quick, flat details. The dialog was great with sassy and smart bits.

The layers of the story made it especially fun. There was the military aspect, the mission, and the action of the team. There was the life of Harper and Nathan. The two layers get woven together and romance comes along for the ride. The characters have to deal with the situations and their feelings. My emotions went all over with fear, worry, lust, mischief, thinking and love.

The first in the Team Poseidon series has everything I need for an awesome read. It had the intellectual aspects in solving things and the crazy feels. I definitely want to continue with this series. There are 2 more books and 2 novellas already available. Highly recommended.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading.I LOVE books and what they give me.It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way.It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.I'll be doing a feature monthly called Thrifty Thursday,which reviews books (ebooks)that have been available for free.
