Introducing the Mission Medusa series
Years of intense training have prepared Tessa Wilkes to become a Medusa—part of an elite, women-only Special Forces team. But all the mental prep and physical training in the world can’t prepare her fully to take on one of the world’s most dangerous men. The ultimate operative, Tessa teams with trainer Beau Lambert to track her target, but even if she survives, will her heart?
Tessa Wilkes is training to join the Special Forces, determined to succeed despite all the physical and mental challenges the training poses. However, she’s devastated when her dreams are thwarted and she’s thrown off the training in a very dramatic manner in front of her fellow (male) recruits. She’s escorted off base by Beau Lambert, believing she’s travelling to Phoenix but that turns out to be a code name. She’s actually going to be given very secret, personal training by Beau. He’s worked in the Special Forces until he seriously injured his knee during a mission. Now he’s trying to prove that women have no role in the Special Forces . . . . but Tessa Wilkes might just change his mind and become the first in a new, elite, women-only Special Forces team, the Medusa, if only he can keep his mind on his goals and not on his attraction to her!
This is the start of a new series. I liked the ideas behind this story and it has a fantastic, action packed ending. It should prove to be an intriguing series and I look forward to finding out how it develops.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
