    Decoy was alright, I doubt I d ever read it again but I did like it and I really thought the main character was realistic.

    Strictly mediocre An unexciting plot with unexciting characters This belongs to those category of books where there is nothing in it to motivate you to go forward but you still read through it because you have nothing else to do I remember the end of this book having an excerpt to the second of this trilogy I did not even feel like reading it.

    Those who remarked on the inconclusive ending to Nick s and Melody s romance can t have realized this is only the first installment of the trilogy As such, Cresswell does a great job introducing the two protagonists and their attraction towards each other With 2sequels to go, Nick s and Melody s relationship is not rushed through in this book unlike other stand alone titles which need the HEA even though the entire plot may cover only 5 days While their romance is strong so the reader i Those who remarked on the inconclusive ending to Nick s and Melody s romance can t have realized this is only the first installment of the trilogy As such, Cresswell does a great job introducing the two protagonists and their attraction towards each other With 2sequels to go, Nick s and Melody s relationship is not rushed through in this book unlike other stand alone titles which need the HEA even though the entire plot may cover only 5 days While their romance is strong so the reader is carried along by their chemistry, not having to rush the HEA means the action suspense aspect is given a balanced treatment and when this first installment came to a close, I was so thankful I had all 3 titles and didn t have to wait.If I have to complain at all, it s that the sex scenes are a bit of an anti climax Cresswell gave Nick and Melody great sexual chemistry but this did not translate into great sex Cresswell is no Linda Howard and certainly not Gennita Low

    This book has me conflicted I think the author did a good job with the suspense plot It flowed well and it made sense But I felt the romance plot was stilted and contrived It s disappointing really because I liked the characters a lot The book is shades of the tv show Alias I would have liked to have seennatural tension between the two characters and further exploration of what makes each character tick I also feel like the heroine gave up too easily and the revelation as to who t This book has me conflicted I think the author did a good job with the suspense plot It flowed well and it made sense But I felt the romance plot was stilted and contrived It s disappointing really because I liked the characters a lot The book is shades of the tv show Alias I would have liked to have seennatural tension between the two characters and further exploration of what makes each character tick I also feel like the heroine gave up too easily and the revelation as to who the Commander was felt really hokey to me That said, I m rushing out to get the sequel

    Wonderful mix of suspense and romance Make sure you have the other books in this trilogy ready, Full Pursuit, and Final Justice, other wise, you ll be left feeling oddly incomplete Recommended.

    Enjoyed this and it was a quick read Read it during lunch time The usual sexual tension between the main characters Seems like a set up for further books using Unit One or the same characters.
