✱✱Book Review✱✱ Code Name: Aries by Janie Crouch

My code name is Aries. The stars say I’m aggressive, dominant, first in line to lead.
The stars aren’t wrong.

Zodiac Tactical is my company. It’s run by those I’ve chosen for their skills and ability to outmaneuver adversaries. We guard, protect, rescue…assist on the side of the angels.

We eliminate the threat when nobody else can.

My pastime of putting bad guys out of business has created powerful enemies, but I’ve always made sure there was nothing in my life I couldn’t live without.

Until now. Until her.

She’s not a warrior, she’s an artist. She sees colors everywhere and greets the world—and me—with a smile. I knew I shouldn’t come near her from the beginning, but she’s everything I’ve never been able to be.

And now a monster has taken her, caged her, to get even with me.

My code name is Aries. And I will burn the world to the ground to get her back.

USA Today and Publisher's Weekly bestselling author Janie Crouch brings the long-awaited follow-up to her Linear Tactical series: Zodiac Tactical—the team of protectors who stand at the front line in the face of danger. Come meet Ian DeRose, the safeguarding warrior who will do anything to defend gentle Wavy Bollinger.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was hoping for a Wavy/Ian romance - they came face to face in the Linear Tactical series, and the chemistry was there even with a limited amount of page time. Needless to say, I was excited to get my hands on this one, and just as I expected, Janie Crouch does not disappoint.
This first Zodiac Tactical book is a bit grittier, a little darker than most books I've read by this author, but it sure made for a gripping storyline. The journey Ian and Wavy take, both separately and together, gets you right in the feels. Janie pretty much always gives us a satisfying, happy ending for the romantic couple, but I've gotta say there were times when I wasn't sure it was in the cards for these two despite how good they were together.
I won't go any further into detail so I don't spoil anything. Instead, I'll wrap it up by saying Code Name: Aries is another stellar read by one of my favorite authors. It's the start of a promising new series with characters I can't get enough of.
