Shannon Stacey’s 72 HOURS
Shan sent me her book to read. I was in the middle of a deadline.
I made the mistake of opening it.
I read it in one sitting.
I hated Shan the entire day for making me open that book. *g*
It’s a phenomenal read. Non stop action, superb characterization, a roller coaster ride of chills and thrills with secrets revealed, secret agents, bunches of bad guys, explosions and gunfire and a reunion romance thrown in the mix. It has everything a reader of romance action and adventure could want—the kind of book where you have to stop reading for a second just to catch your breath and let your heart stop pounding. Alex and Grace are nicely flawed and not picture perfect, their banter is right on, their emotional turmoil is heartfelt and real.
Shannon’s comedic touch is threaded throughout the book, even in the most anxiety ridden, nail biting scenes. The sex ain’t too bad either! *g*
It’s probably one of the best Shannon Stacey books I’ve ever read. When I finished the book, I was clamoring for the sequel immediately. (Get to writing that, will ya Shan?)

The Devlin Group: A privately-owned rogue agency unhindered by red tape and jurisdiction.
Grace Nolan walked away from the Devlin Group carrying Alex Rossi’s child in her womb and his bullet in her shoulder. But a ghost from the past has kidnapped her son, Danny. The ransom—Alex Rossi. To get her son back, Grace will have to step back into the life she’d left behind and reveal her secret to Alex.
With vengeance for his mother’s murder nearly at hand and a deadly substance on the loose, the last thing Alex Rossi needs is to find himself at the business end of Grace’s gun. Now the clock is ticking as they race to save a child and stop a madman bent on destruction.
But Alex has a secret of his own, and it may be the ultimate betrayal.
