My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you are afraid to read this because you haven’t read the rest of the series, then worry no more! This is a stand-alone that flows seamlessly from the first page until the last. So many times I find the romantic/romantic suspense genre to be lacking in content. You get a lot of smexy scenes but no real content. “Compromised” surprised me because I felt for Sadie and Simon. They both had realistic characterization and I could feel the anger and pain from each. Of course, being this genre, there were a few eye rolling worthy scenes of “I love you” ‘I hate you” (as I think of beating off to the smell of your pillow) type moments, but it wasn’t distracting enough to make me want to put it down. I actually read the whole thing in a few hours.
I really like the author’s writing style. I could tell it wasn’t just words falling out of her head. She had to have had experience with military or put at least a little effort in the research because her facts were spot on.
As much as I loved Sadie and Simon, I found Garret to be my favorite character. He was so funny but he had Simon’s back from the moment he set foot on the ground.
The only real drawback is I was left wondering what happened to Simon’s team. I’m hoping that will be addressed in the net installment. Speaking of the next installment… My main man Malone Garret will be starring in Risk of Exposure (Alpha Ops #6) set to release May 6, 2016. I, for one, can’t wait.
