✱✱Book Review✱✱ Release Blitz for Shamrock by Janie Crouch

Title: Shamrock
A Linear Tactical Standalone
Author: Janie Crouch
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: December 4, 2018


Every mission has a price.
He never meant for her to pay it.

Aiden has never left anyone behind. Not a comrade and certainly not an innocent. But when an undercover mission goes wrong, he's forced to abandon a woman trapped in a human trafficking ring.

Violet learned brutally that no one is promised a happy ending. She knows Aiden blames himself for his part, but she refuses to let her abduction define the rest of her life.

She won't be a victim again. And she's going after what she wants: Aiden.

Watching Violet transform herself into a fierce warrior is the sexiest thing Aiden has ever seen. The honorable plan would be to stay away from her--let her heal and grow without the shadow of his mistakes clouding her progress--even though every instinct tells him to claim her for his own.

But when they discover the danger they thought they'd left behind is closer than ever, they'll have to face their deepest fears and fight side-by-side in order to survive.

 Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Another heart-poundingly exciting story for this series! This couple absolutely blew me away. As far as main characters with a romantic interest go, I couldn't have asked for more than Aiden and Violet. He's a tough, take charge guy with a heart of gold, and Violet is as strong a heroine as I've ever seen. She's been hurt and has the mental scars to prove it, but she's bound and determined not to let it break her. She's certainly not about to let past trauma come between her and her dreams. Aiden did make me want to give him a good shake at one point in the story, even though I did kind of agree with him, but these two are so good together that there is no way to read this book and not be totally won over and rooting for their happiness together. We also get plenty on the suspense side of this tale and there are parts that are hard to read. Those parts don't get too graphic, but they certainly get the heart rate up. Shamrock is part of a series and overlaps somewhat with the previous books, but we get all the info needed to also enjoy it as a standalone. However, once you've gotten to know the wonderful characters of Linear Tactical, you'll want their stories too. Like the rest of the series, this third book is full of steamy romance, edge of your seat action and suspense, all the feels, and truly great characters. This is definitely a must read and I can't wait to see what's next in the series. 


Violet knew what she wanted.
No more being passive. No more agreeing to what might in fact be good for her but wasn’t what she really wanted.
“You respect me,” she said gently.
The relief flashed and Aiden’s hazel eyes. “Yes. I have nothing but respect for you.”
“Thank you,” she whispered, trailing her fingers through his thick hair. “And thank you for getting me home safely last night. And like I said before, thank you for getting me out of that hellhole a month ago, for figuring out that I was in trouble when to anyone else it just looked like a normal part of that situation.”
His brows furrowed. “You’re welcome for all those things. But there’s no need—”
She put her finger up to his lips. “I just wanted to say it one more time to make sure I’d been clear. Because now I’m done saying thank you. And I think you better take me inside. Otherwise, Mrs. Mazille and her neighborhood watch might get quite an eyeful with what I’m planning to do to you.”
There was only so much a man could take. A line where he snapped. A great deal of his Special Forces training had been spent learning how to push that line as far back as possible.
But when Violet’s fingers reached for the hem of the T-shirt covering her body and began pulling it off, Aiden found his line very clearly.
