✱✱Book Review✱✱ Code Name: Virgo (Zodiac Tactical Rescue Unit) by Janie Crouch


My code name is Virgo. The stars say I’m practical, honest, stubborn as hell.

Guilty as charged.

Zodiac Tactical is the company that gave me a second chance. We guard, protect, rescue...eliminate the threat when nobody else can. And as a former SEAL, I’m good at those things. Good with weapons, good with missions.

But with people...not so good.

So when a gruesome enemy takes Bronwyn Rourke, one of Zodiac’s newest young recruits—with blue eyes that take up nearly her whole damn face—I shouldn’t take it personally. Shouldn’t allow her to consume my every thought and become my only mission.

They took her because they thought she was alone. Easy prey. That no one would fight for her.

They were wrong.

My code name is Virgo. And I will grind my enemy to dust to bring her home.

USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author Janie Crouch brings you that story you've been looking for to escape everyday reality—romantic suspense that will leave you breathless. She needs a hero. He'll have to remember how to be one. Dive in today!

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

One of my favorite things about Janie Crouch is how thoroughly re-readable her books are. Seriously, I haven't found a single one that I couldn't go back and read again. In fact, I end up so in love with her characters they feel like old friends, so I feel the need to go back and visit from time to time. Code Name: Virgo ranks right up at the top of that list. 
I honestly don't know how many times I've said that this or that couple is my favorite from this author only to be proven wrong again and again - not that I'm complaining., but once again, I have a new favorite couple in Sarge and Bronwyn. I love age gap romance anyway, and when it's combined with characters like these, there's just no way to avoid falling for the characters or their story. My heart went out to Sarge in the first book even though it wasn't exactly his story, and it absolutely broke for Sarge and Bronwyn here. So, yes, Code Name: Virgo is definitely emotional. It's also completely riveting, and the edge of your seat action and danger just keeps coming. True to form for this author, the story has a great balance between intrigue and romance, and rarely will one ever overshadow the other.
What it all comes down to is this is another terrific read by one of my favorite authors, and I can't wait to see what she does next. This second in the Zodiac Tactical Rescue Unit is gonna be a hard act to follow, but I'm sure Janie is up to the task.
