Review: Crossfire by Lynette Eason


Wowzers, what an amazing second book in the Extreme Measures series! I have been reading Lynette Eason for almost ten years now, I’ve read nearly all of her books, and she is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors! 

Crossfire was one of my most anticipated releases of 2022 and it most definitely did not disappoint! This book throws you right into the action at the very beginning, and keeps you flipping pages at breakneck speed to find out what happens! 

I loved Julianna and Clay, they are both awesome characters and it was a joy to watch their relationship develop. I loved that Julianna is an FBI Hostage Negotiator, which is not a profession you see featured often, in fact I think this might be the first book with a negotiator heroine I’ve read since reading The Negotiator by Dee Henderson years ago! 

The faith story in this book is excellent! Lynette Eason delivers a beautiful story of grace and forgiveness, while simultaneously showing the evil some people are capable of if they allow themselves to be consumed with hatred and bitterness. 

In each of her books this author always includes several scenes from the villain’s point of view, but I believe Crossfire is the first time she has written those scenes in first person POV (the rest of the book is in third person) 

I found this fascinating and loved that she wrote it that way! The first person narration of those scenes also kept the reader from being able to know whether the villain was a man or a woman, and I thought that was absolutely brilliant, well done Lynette Eason! 

Crossfire is a winner! I loved every minute I spent reading this book! I think I might have loved Life Flight the tiniest bit more than Crossfire, but this one is still a solid five star read for me and definitely a favorite of 2022! 

I highly recommend Crossfire, and I cannot wait to read the third book in the series! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. 

My review was not influenced in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
