Jen’s Review of BEYOND LIMITS

When I first starting reading Beyond Limits, I wasn’t sure if I would like it. My main concern was that I felt like I was missing something, like I should have read all the preceding books in the series. My other concern was that I didn’t expect so much of it to be related to the military, which worried me because of how a lot of books often portray military men as demanding jerks.

I have to say that those concerns evaporated very quickly. By the second or third chapter, I could see that I didn’t have anything to worry about. My concern about having missed something was short-lived, because everything I needed to understand the current story was right there on the pages.

My other concern was also short-lived, because I learned that isn’t how Laura Griffin writes her military characters. I was relieved and impressed by how she handled it. The men have the good qualities like protectiveness, physicality, and bravery, but none of the expected bad characteristics like egocentrism or excessive arrogance.

One thing that stands out in my mind about Beyond Limits is how incredibly real everything felt. I have no military or law enforcement knowledge, so I can’t attest to the accuracy. However, it seemed very well researched.

If you like a book with exciting action, hot sex, a satisfying romance, and solid investigative work to track down terrorists, you should give Beyond Limits a try. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It’s definitely worth 5 stars in my opinion!
