Jun 05, Mareli rated it really liked it. But, in this second book, I still miss the passion.
Both the 1st and the 2nd book are a bit lacking on the loving, in my opinion. But the author writes very good and I'm already onto the next one besid okay, it was more 3. But the author writes very good and I'm already onto the next one besides I need to know what will happen between two people ; Three relationships in total, which made it hard to follow at times with the multiple pov's. I usually soak up the multiple pov with relish, but with all three meeting and getting together in the same book made it impossible to keep straight at times.
Mar 19, Jess rated it really liked it Shelves: , romantic-suspense. This was definitely better than the first book in the series, I felt more of a connection with the characters and I enjoyed the plot more. I also thought the side relationships were really great and entertaining.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series. May 22, Jessica added it. Way too much going on. There were three separate romances going on which did not add to the plot in any way I could see. It was very distracting and I think the book would have been much better without two of them. Always the same problem with the author's style. This time there are up to 9 points of view, quite a bit of head jumping to follow. On the bright side, the plots were good and the characters realistic.
But I'm not going on with this author. May 14, MaggieReadsRom rated it really liked it Shelves: arcs. How much? The incessant calls echoed in his ear, a mix of Krio and English he wouldn't soon forget as he ran through the crowded marketplace along the narrow streets by the harbor.
Zane was a character that very much intrigued me in that book. Olivia 'Liv' Strohm is a strong and determined woman. I really admired Olivia's character. I truly love Stephanie Tyler's male characters and Zane, and his brother Caleb for that matter too, was no exception but even more than the men, I adore her female characters. They all have amazing inner strength and are resilient yet they're never hard or harsh because of the vulnerability she layers them with. Yet they're not picture-perfect, they make mistakes and have flaws and this makes them realistic and likeable. They aren't fearless but don't let their fears dominate their actions or paralyze them.
Once again Ms. Tyler blew me away with the multiple story lines, in the suspense as well as in the romance. There were times I would wonder where it was going but then I'd remember I was reading a Stephanie Tyler book and I'd know it would all click together in due course. Tyler hit me with some exciting twists that had me reading breathlessly and rooting for the good guys.
I loved the "aha! I praise and admire Ms. Tyler for keeping it fresh and unpredictable. I am once more in awe of Stephanie Tyler's imagination and writing skills. With every book from her hand that I read, I'm amazed at how someone can come up with these storylines that are always fresh and original. Though Zane and Olivia are the main couple of this book, there are more characters who are crucial in the suspense plot and who provide some intense secondary romances.
However, nothing is further from the truth. Tyler delivers well-rounded characters with a complete background that she seamlessly inserts into the rest of the story and I never get the feeling of being overwhelmed. I love that! Every time I start a Stephanie Tyler military romance I expect a poignant romance, rounded characters with extensive and gritty back-stories and nail biting suspense and she has not once disappointed me.
Romantic suspense lovers should not miss this author or this series as Stephanie Tyler delivers on both romance and suspense, is never predictable and keeps you reading until way past your bedtime. I want you to know my name. Cael He wondered if she ever truly let go. For the record, the answer was Hell yes. Especially in bed. Because there was a time and a place, and bed was the time and the place.
Well, so was the floor. The table. The car. Yeah, time to get his mind back in the game. And this man. But she wanted to see him smile. No, she wanted to make him smile. Wanted to make him murmur her name again, over and over, until she knew he was lost in the pleasure haze. He waited, half in the tent and half out, his hair wrapped in a bandanna, shirt off, feet bare and pants hanging low on his hips.
His eyes glowed, a blue like the Caribbean ocean with black- rimmed irises, the knife strapped to his left arm and the rifle slung with a loose band around his chest. He looked wild. Oct 23, Jami Dutcher rated it really liked it. Great book but a little confusing to follow sometimes.

Jun 19, Janet Robel rated it really liked it. Wonderful book with a great setting. Loved these characters right from the start.
Plenty of action and sexiness to keep the reader glued to the pages. Jan 25, April rated it it was ok Shelves: adult , dnf , audio. Shelves: romantic-suspense , favorites. The three story lines are expertly weaved together to form a superb novel of suspense, action, and raw heat.
Zane and Olivia: Zane Scott and Dr. Now, Zane is in Africa and is willing to do anything, everything, to bring Olivia back safely to the States. And, of course, these two have deep dark secrets lurking in their pasts that are always getting in the way. Besides, he already knew, judging from his next words, which were a rough growl against her cheek. The clinic serves multiple purposes. DMH has somehow gotten its deadly hands on her computer program and is planning on using it for their dastardly deeds. Cael glanced toward the bedroom and wondered how much Vivi would spill to him now that she was tired and secluded.

The storyline is actually really good. If we remember from book one, Olivia was Skylar's doctor. So now she's in Africa and Zane is taking it upon himself to go get her and bring her safely to the States. Of course right off the bat I loved that they both agree that their situation is not going to be like Dylan and Riley, hehe, when in reality they are very attracted to each other.
They have more than just ba 3. They have more than just bad guys after them to overcome since Olivia truly wants to do good there and they end up getting involved and helping with other situations there as well. Like the first novel in this series there's a second couple. Which I liked as well. Caleb and Vivi. He's in charge of protecting Vivi, computer genius, while she's working on a software glitch that could mean a breach of security if its not fixed.
Although Vivi is a bit of a recluse and not the most social person, Caleb is very attracted to Ms. And how could she not be attracted to him? Yeah, the brothers are all very alpha and drool-worthy. But here is where it gets complicated and why, even though I really enjoyed the book and Ms. Tyler's writing I couldn't give it more than 3. I found this distracting, the book is already split enough and has so much going on with two couples and each dealing with a different set of issues, to put another couple with their own issues was spreading this too thin for me.
Even though I actually liked Rowan and Tristan a lot. I actually would've liked to see more of them. Nonetheless I find this series very entertaining, full of suspense and I can't wait to get the next book! Mar 13, Sammie rated it it was amazing. It was pretty good , there were a few things that i would have changed only because i felt like she put to many stories in one book , i really kinda wanted the others to get their own books but other then that i really enjoyed the book.
Now for the other story it was kick ass , i think i might have liked Tristen even more them Caleb , there's just something about Tristen that makes you want to know more a about him , and Rowan is pretty cool and i find her very interesting from the first time we meet her , The 1st time she meets Tristen i was like omg things just got way more interesting and then the 2nd time in the tent i was thinking to myself Holy crap this is getten so good , i loved their story that i was left wanting more , which was why i was kinda upset that they didn't get their own book because that would have been so awesome.

Promises in the Dark : A Shadow Force Novel (Original) [Paperback]
Okay, talk about falling in love with a character. This book was different and even better than the first in the series. Zane was a wonderful character. It was great to see him grow up a little in this book and to find out more about him and his past.

Really great characters, really great book - The secondary characters were Okay, talk about falling in love with a character. Really great characters, really great book - The secondary characters were great as well. In this book you also get to know Kaleb better.

Book 2 in the Shadow Force series features Dylan's younger brother Zane, one tough hombre that we know is a Navy Seal, a partyer and womanizer extraordinaire. Olivia Strohm, Skylar's transplant surgeon, who's been taken by the terrorists. No one expects him to form an attachment to a woman he's never met. The book starts a few months after her cap Book 2 in the Shadow Force series features Dylan's younger brother Zane, one tough hombre that we know is a Navy Seal, a partyer and womanizer extraordinaire.
The book starts a few months after her capture when Zane heads to Africa to aid in Olivia's rescue. But he finds she's already managed her own escape and doesn't want to be rescued and brought home. She survived a kidnapping as a child and thinks she brings trouble to all those around her. And with the DMH organization trying to recapture her, trouble equals death. There are two more romances going on in the book that are equally strong, especially Caleb and Vivi's which continues in book 3. They're interesting enough that they could have had their own novella. Once again, Stephanie combines bloody thrills and sex galore to make for a steamy read.

Jul 04, Darcy rated it liked it Shelves: , romantic-suspense. I was going to come here and write my review, saying that while I enjoyed this book I felt like somethings were missing, that the story started some place else. So I went to the author's website and noticed, why yes, something was missing, the whole freaking first book!! What an idiot I am, I am not sure how that happened.
I do think this book should be named, Broken or I have issues. No, he was just right. It took all her strength to get him inside the door and close it behind them. How had she been found? Trouble comes in pairs , Ama used to say. A warning for Olivia that just because one bad thing had happened, she was not to let her guard down against the possibility of more. That was rare. Even her sleep was broken and uneasy. Dreams replaced by nightmares. As it was, the few hours cost her. Her hands shook and her focus was off. Has anyone else come here tonight? A further search yielded nothing—no dog tags, nothing that would identify him as military beyond his clothing and weapons, nothing that told her anything A note, written by Skylar.
Zane is one of the good guys. Behind the note was a photograph—well worn and instantly recognizable. It was from her apartment back home in New York. It was a picture of her and her mom, taken in Central Park. Zane really was here looking for her. No, those men would not talk to her the way he had. Zane stirred and she froze. But he only woke for a second, just long enough to open his eyes and stare at her.
