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

 

Months trapped in the clutches of a madman made Jenna Franklin a shell of the woman she once was. All she can do now is use her computer genius from inside the safety of closed doors.

Even two years later, going outside = 
blood-freezing panic.

She’s made herself a haven in the only place she’s felt safe since her captivity: Oak Creek, Wyoming—home of her Linear Tactical friends. They don’t realize the extent of her emotional trauma, but at least she knows she can trust them.

Only one person knows the truth about the fragile mental state she’s hiding: Zodiac agent, Mark Outlawson—code name: Outlaw.

He’s witnessed her panic firsthand. 
Knows what it does to her.

When info on a human trafficking group—one connected to her own captivity—comes to light, it’s clear only Jenna’s expertise can stop them. Mark will have to prove Jenna can trust him—to keep her secrets, to protect her, to help fight her demons.

He’ll prove this outlaw is a hero.

★★★★★
USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author Janie Crouch (with story co-developed by Josie Jade) brings you this Linear/Zodiac Tactical crossover to help you escape everyday reality! Don't miss this former-military warrior and the woman he'll risk everything to protect. Full length novel with no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a happily-ever-after guaranteed.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I have loved every couple in the Linear/Zodiac Tactical world. Maybe some more than others, but they all rank at the top of my favorite couples list. So, it was no surprise when Mark and Jenna brought the feels and had me white-knuckling my Kindle as things got increasingly dangerous, and all the while, I was swooning over how great they are together. The story has all the danger, excitement, and feels I've come to expect from Janie Crouch, which means one more book that I couldn't put down. I've learned to just grab my drink of choice (depending on the time of day) and settle in for the duration anytime I pick up this author's work, so that's what I did here as well. Things started getting intense pretty quickly, and before I knew it, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. And yes, I did talk to the characters or yell at them when they didn't listen. Janie always brings out that side of me. And without giving the book's secrets away, that's how I found myself with another favorite couple.
I knew from this book was bringing the series to an end, so it was kind of bittersweet. This found family has become like friends to me, friends I can turn to for a bit of escapism, so I really didn't want to see it end. Thankfully, this isn't really goodbye because I can pick up my Kindle and visit any time with any of the terrific couples in the series. So, Code Name: Outlaw is another in a long list of terrific characters, swoony romance, and intense suspense.
