Targeted is one of those romantic suspense books with stupid villains and main characters that act in ways that contradict their supposed feelings If the book hadn t worked for a team challenge, I would have dnf it.Let s start with the hero, a Marine sniper, who is recruited by the NSA for a new Black Ops team One of the conditions of joining said team is changing his name and having plastic surgery Huh 1 Why change his name Isn t he supposed to be doing undercover work and or Black Ops job When [...]
Not impressive, but not really bad either I liked it okI felt like many situations could have been resolved easily just with a tad of communication, and the twists could have been better The setting and world building provided enough material for something interesting and less clich or predictable imo NSA agents, undercover agents, Miami, druglords, etc Exciting stuff I liked the audiobook narrator, I ve listened to her works before, her voice flows nicely and she has great voices and tones for [...]

Review to come
I would have like a little romance with all the action and suspense in this one Lot of time had to be spent reliving revealing the past.
Action packed from the beginning This is one of the better book 1 romantic suspense books I ve read in a while I enjoyed this one Former marine Jack Stone is the second in command in the NSA team that specializes in undercover work taking out crime rings Now Jack has been tasked with discovering whose leaking information to the Miami drug lord and working with Keane Flights to smuggle drugs and arms This new assignment forced Jack to work with Sophie Moreno, a former flame who believed him dead [...]
A good Action Romance story Good Narration.This was a really good story Lots of action, running for your life, kidnapping, killing, espionage and romance I really liked the heroine, Sophie, she was a strong female character, smart and witty.The hero, Jack a k a Sam, was kick butt and sexy Covert operative, is a yes in my book.Sophie and Jack had great chemistry together It was not forced or fake it really felt genuine There was one sex scene that was very mildly nicely written, so no hot and ste [...]
3.75 Stars My first book by this author, and I was pleased Great plot line that didn t become tedious The leads had good chemistry and tension Both were likable characters The book flowed well and didn t drag Enjoyable romantic suspense with a good balance of the genres
Best book she s written Amazing.
This review was originally posted at The Book Nympho After skipping Targeted to start my reading experience with Katie Reus Deadly Ops with books 2 and 3 I decided it was time to finally go back and read listen to the first book After reading 2 and 3 I purchased Targeted on my Nook, then the series was released on audio so I decided to give it a go on audio instead.While I didn t fall in love with Sophie Eastlake the first I heard her narrate another book I thought I d give her another go Sophie [...]
This one was not for me It took me 3 days to finish it, a really long time for me I found it easy to put down the book, so much that I finished 3 other books while in the middle of this one I just couldn t find much that was good in this book.I did enjoy the fact that Sam and Sophie cherished the memories of each other, but the continuous flashback got a bit old I didn t get why Sam didn t try to contact Sophie again, if she had meant that much to him, even though it made it easier for him to tu [...]
I read Book 4 in this series first and really liked it This one was OK, but didn t measure up to the 4th one I like the series well enough that I m going to read Book 2 and 3 as well.
Katie Reus doesn t put her characters in a situation that she can t write them through Her plot was good but there were too many sex on the brain interruptions.A little less on the page fillers and I could bump this up a star I heard books further along in the series are better I ll have to give them a try.
Not a bad spy thriller, good story, great characters I enjoyed it
High Action Romantic Suspense And I ve fallen.So hard.I ve hit the ground Gone right through it Never in my life have I felt this Nothing like this I ve felt shame and cowardice, weakness and strength I ve known terror and indifference, self hate and general disgust I ve seen things that cannot be unseen.And yet I ve known nothing like this terrible, horrible, paralyzing feeling I feel crippled Desperate and out of control And it keeps getting worse Every day I feel sick Empty and somehow aching [...]
Jack was the perfect hero for Katie Reus s new romantic suspense series He is all those things that make a bad ass tough alpha hero swoon worthy He is part of an elite team of super secret NSA operatives His newest assignment brings a past he tried to bury back into his life in a major way The only woman he has ever loved is employed by the company that has every government agency keeping their eyes on them due to possible illegal activities Jack knows there is no way Sophie is involved He cease [...]

As I was reading this one I kept waiting for it to live up to the author s other books It took me 3 days to finish this one, a long time for me I found it easy to put down the book.I did enjoy the flashbacks with Sam and Sophie in the past, loved that each of them cherished those memories I even understood why Sophie pushed Sam away, but didn t get why Sam didn t try to contact her again Because of that it was easy to see why Sam made the decision to be Jack, he felt he had nothing.I had a hard [...]
Jack and Sophie thrust back together in Targeted Jack is aware of their past together, but Sophie is not Jack has been given a new face and identity due to his job with the NSA.Physical characters of descriptions randomly appear throughout the story For example, Wesley s current physical description isn t given until the 3rd quarter to epilogue of the book Until then I d been picturing a 40ish, medium height, single man only to discover he s tall, older and had a family Some characters seem to d [...]
BuddyRead with ByezchangI questioned a lot about things happened in the book because they didn t make sense and I prefer logic in my reading of thriller and suspense.My thoughts are The villain is wasting their time, energy, and sources to hunt down the heroine The security agency is not totally aware of their surrounding and lack of teamwork That is just The hero is an idiot because he had this feeling there s a mole in the agency but he decided to put the thought aside because saving his woman [...]
Narrated by Sophie EastlakeStrong start to this one and I m hoping for a great listen.Finished now and loved it Great suspense with two highly likable and fully developed characters Romance and action are mixed evenly and Sophie Eastlake perfectly performs each true to the author s words I ll now be looking for Eastlake narrations.

a really great read full of action, and the redemption of a man who lost his love and gave up his life but is rediscovering himself as he rediscovers that love and gets to begin life a new I can t wait to find out whose story will be next though i have my suspicions Another wonderful series.
I really enjoyed this fast moving romantic suspense It was also great to have a Cuban American heroine.
DNF 57% No he podido con este libro es demasiado aburrido y predecible Los personajes son m s planos que una hoja y la trama me hac a querer dormir durante 10 a os seguidos
I ve mentioned before that I enjoy Katie Reus s romantic suspense novels Her Red Stone Security series is my favorite, but I have been enjoying her Deadly Ops series lately So I decided to give Targeted, the first book in the Deadly Ops, series a try While I am glad I read Targeted, I wasn t completely sold on this novel.Targeted is about NSA agent Jack Stone and Sophie Moreno Jack although he went by a different name at the time and Sophie were very close when they were in high school They were [...]
Targeted is the first book in the new Deadly Ops series by Katie Reus To me, this is what romantic suspense is all about Good guys NSA agents tracking down the bad guys drug lords and terrorists Good versus evil A hero that will do anything to protect the heroine A heroine that won t listen when the hero says to leave him behind Targeted is engaging and full of suspense from beginning to end.The love story in Targeted is very unique and emotionally raw all on its own It is actually hard to talk [...]
