Review: Cyclone by Janie Crouch

Category : Reviews

“One rule,” he said against her lips.

“Anything makes you nervous, brings back bad memories–you tell me right away. You don’t try to power through anything. We go as slow as you need.”

Meet Zac Mackay. Military codename: Cyclone.

He’s a widower, a protector, a hero.

Doctor Anne Griffin is back in Oak Creek, Wyoming, only because she has no other options. Here, she was always the shy, stuttering girl, invisible to everyone.

Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she left in the first place.

Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him survival skills, and he’s created a company–Linear Tactical–to teach those skills to others, so they never have to live in fear.

Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid of him?

Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes–his mistakes–that put that look there in the first place.

But a predator has set his sights on Annie. And now survival skills will become much more than lessons…

CYCLONE is a stand-alone steamy romantic suspense, set in the LINEAR TACTICAL series. Meet the former military men of Linear Tactical, and the women who bring them to their knees: The strongest fall the hardest.

A “less-steamy” version of this book (same great story but with toned down language and sensual scenes) is available on Janie’s website: janiecrouch .com ~ If you like the heat level of Janie’s Harlequin Intrigue books, you’ll love the “less-steamy” version of the Linear Tactical series!

My Review:
Genre: Romance – Suspense, military, second-chance
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Yes Book 1 of the Linear Tactical series
POV: Zac and Anne
Steam level: Quite Warm at times

Cyclone is the first book I’ve read by Janie Crouch. It was a ton of fun. The mystery was done really well. The second-chance part of the book was done really well. The emotions tied up in their past was palpable and added another layer to this heartfelt and inspiring story. I love that Zac, although a protector, was also Anne’s teacher and cheerleader. Zac built on/gave Anne the skills she needed to survive. I cannot wait to read more of this guys and will definitely be reading more of Janie Crouch. If you’re looking for a superb romantic suspense then look no further. Pick up Cyclone for an enthralling story with a ton of twists and turns, a story of love and survival, support and strength.

I read an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Favorite Quotes:

  • Anyone standing in front of him with the intent to harm him or the the people he was protecting only had one name: Enemy
  • A fist you were unprepared for hurt the most.
  • It was much easier being invisible.
  • When continuing was your only option, you found a way.
  • This is why Anne didn’t have friends. They always stabbed you in the back and made you go out with the guy you’ve been in love with your whole life.
  • Sometimes it’s heartbreak that ties people together. And maybe pain is the tightest bond of all.
  • We can’t fix the past, but we can start again from here and see where it takes us.
