Publisher's Summary

Five years ago, Aegis Security op manager Marley Addison's lover died in a South American raid gone horribly wrong...or so she thought. When she receives a phone call telling her that he is still very much alive and in danger, she vows to bring him home safely, even if Aegis CEO and former Navy SEAL Jake Ryder has kept her out of the field for the last few years. Then Jake shows up in Colombia to help her, leaving Marley annoyed...and more than a little distracted by her alarmingly handsome boss.

As things between Marley and Jake heat up in the wilderness, they discover their rescue mission is filled with treachery. Now the domineering Jake has to rely on Marley for survival. But can she depend on him when their mission takes a shocking and deadly turn?

Fatal Pursuit is the pulse-pounding third book in Elisabeth Naughton's scorching Aegis series.

Delicious Fun & Satisfying Girl Power Moments!

There were quite a few points in the first half of the book that I was really cheering Marley on and enjoyed quite a bit of satisfaction at Jake's shock at Marley's sheer competance in the field. I enjoyed that Naughton had a bit of fun at Jake's expense--a former Navy SEAL who's squeamish in the jungle, and whose own survival skills are more akin to an office mgr than a former operative ;) Oh, don't get me wrong; you never the get the feeling he's any less a hot He-Man (or "alpha" if you prefer). Its just that more often than not, old stereotypes prevail in this type of novel and its nice that Naughton had some fun and gave us some satisfying surprises. Such as when, early in the book, Marley does the Walk, announcing to Jake She's Done. She doesn't get all drama on him. She just does the walk and how often do we wish we could be as poised in our resignation or disgust with a pompous thoughtless boss?

It turns out that despite Jake's relegating Marley to office/operational support, she's quite expert in the field and doesn't make any fanfare about establishing a base camp, catching and prepping dinner with MaGyver-like aptitude in the jungle. Meanwhile our hero shows up with a palm frond after being gone for hours. His mouth agape response at sleeping and food accomodations by Ms Daniel Boone was hilarious.

The story is a another fun, seat of your pants adventure, but it really relies on too many autorial conveniences, making turns in action kind of predictable, which is why I've only offered 4 stars for overall and for the story. The chemistry and the banter between the two is top notch and very enjoyable. Very often during the middle of the book I would stop what I was doing to really concentrate on listening to the dialogue. For that reason, I'm not going to forget this book in the next couple weeks.

But I object that our saavy, sharp Marley is painted as blind to the machinations of rescued ex boyfriend. And that maybe she is purposely being blind, maybe even being so out of spite to Jake's hostility. There's a necessity in writing romance that there's got to be conflict and Jake's particular commitment and esteem issues I think would've been enough to meet the requirement without some of the ridiculousness of the character never finding her tongue to reject a marriage proposal and just weakly going along with it in the lack of so many other things.

We don't really resolve Jakes esteem issues which would have been more realistic than all the shenanigans that ensued. Those shortcomings aside, I still enjoyed the listen in spite of a tad bit of eye rolling and would recommend this to those who like the action romance genre, and especially to those frustrated girl warriors out there.

It looks like Ronan, Marley's half-brother, will get his own tale soon which will be an auto-download for me!

Great Series!

Great story with a bit of everything, action to romance. Well developed and likable main characters. Narrator did an excellent job.

My only complaint, I hated that the heroine gave in to the manipulation of her father and the ex boyfriend. She was so strong though the whole story except for that. I get that she was supposed to be vulnerable at that time but vulnerability doesn't equate to idiocy.

Fatal Pursuit

I have mixed feelings about this story. On the one hand, it was well written, it had an interesting plot, the characters were well drawn, but on the other hand, Jake was such a jerk throughout that I wasn't convinced of his change of heart at the end.

The narrator did a good job, although I prefer a man's voice on these military/special ops type stories. But that's just my opinion.
