"A hunt for dangerous secrets leads to explosive chemistry in this exhilarating romantic suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Going Dark.

A team of Navy SEALs go on a mission and disappear without a trace--they are The Lost Platoon.

Investigative reporter Brittany Blake may have stumbled upon the story of a lifetime in her search for her missing brother. When he seemingly disappears overnight, she refuses to accept the Navy's less-than-satisfying explanation. She begins her own investigation, which leads her to top-secret SEAL teams, covert ops, and a possible cover up...

John Donovan is having trouble biding his time, waiting for his Commanding Officer to figure out who set up their platoon. John's best friend and BUD/S partner, Brandon Blake, was one of the many lives tragically lost in the attack against his team. When Brandon's sister, Brittany, tracks John down, looking for answers, he realizes that she may be their best bet--or bait--for finding out who is targeting SEAL Team Nine."

My Thoughts:

Off The Grid was an addictive and enjoyable romantic suspense. This is shaping up to be a good romantic suspense series and I think I enjoyed this one more than I did the first book in the series. I can’t wait to see how some of these questions come together in the next book in the series.

John and Brittany had great chemistry together and you root for them from the get go. I really liked John and found him to be ridiculously charming. He and Brittany had a great back and forth and their banter was great. Brittany though, I liked, but at times she drove me insane. She just would not stop with this article, no matter how many times it was clear that she was not only putting herself in dangers but also others. I appreciated her desire to uncover the truth, and she did deserve answers, but I wish she would have calmed down a bit when things started to become clear.

The plot though for this one was super addictive. There was a lot going on and it definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. I also like that there are plot points that are continuing throughout the series and I am enjoying pulling back the different layers and getting answers. There were some pretty big truths uncovered in this one and I can’t wait to see where they lead with the next book. The romance and the action was balanced really well and its romantic suspense done right.

Off The Grid was a good read from beginning to end. It’s a good romance with a ton of action and great banter. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series.
