Review of Invisible: An Alpha Company Military Romance by Beth Abbott

Invisible: An Alpha Company Military Romance by Beth Abbott

~ Synopsis ~

Ellen Thomas knows that if she’s to have a hope of staying alive, she has to remain Invisible.

Ever since the night a man died trying to protect Ellen and her father from a London gangster, she’s been on the run. In an attempt to stop herself being discovered, she’s done everything she can to stay off the grid. She’s left her family and friends behind and moved halfway across the country, changed her appearance and given up everything and everyone she knew and loved just to stay alive.

But will it ever be enough?

Luke Roberts has finally left a distinguished career in the British army behind him, and joined with his former team-mates to start Alpha Company Security, fulfilling the dream the four men have shared for years. But he won’t be able to rest until he finds out who murdered his twin brother and why. 

The police claim Casey was part of a notorious London gang, but Luke is convinced that his brother would never have worked for criminals. He suspects that Casey was working undercover, but can’t get anybody to confirm it, at least not whilst it could harm an ongoing investigation.

He's spent three years trying to track down the one person who might be able to tell him what happened to his brother that night, but she may as well be a ghost.

And if he finds her, will he discover the truth? Or will he get a lot more than he bargained for?

This is Book One in The Alpha Company Women Series.

~ Review ~

I really liked this book! Ellen's father, David, was in bed with a ring of criminals and gathering intel for the police so they could bring George Drayton's crime ring down. One night David made a stop to George's house when the henchmen stumble upon them, and their lives are forever changed. A handsome stranger comes to their aid, but he is killed in the process. Now Ellen is on the run from the gang and has been living her life as invisible as possible. She colors her hair and wears colored contacts and glasses to disguise her beautiful appearance. She's living in a small town, flying under the radar when HE comes along, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Moody! 

Luke is searching for a missing girl that's tied to his brother's death. He just knows his brother couldn't be tied to the gang of criminals. He was one of the good guys. She holds the answers he seeks to clear his brother's name and to put away the criminals that caused his brother's death. When his search leads him to a small town and a very intriguing waitress named Ellen, sparks fly! What will he do when he learns Ellen is the girl he seeks? Will she come forward to clear his brother's name, or will his gruff behavior cost him everything?

The characters in this book were well flushed out, You get their back story to really know who they are and where they're coming from. I like the humor and the relationship between Ellen and her best friend Suzy. Suzy is a real spitfire, and these two ladies are a ball together. Toss in a handful of hunky men and a couple of great parents, and you have a wonderful tale. The books is fast paced with a lot of romance and action. The plot just flowed great. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. This is the first book in the Alpha Company Women series. I will definitely be reading more from this author!

EXCERPT: (In the voice of Aubrey Hart) Reaching room number twelve, I knocked lightly, glancing at the name on my chart. “I’m here for morning rounds, Mr. Carpenter,” I said through the door. “Come in,” a slightly gruff voice said. Turning the knob, I entered, balancing the items I was carrying in my other hand. “Good morning, Mr. Carp—” A small shriek escaped my lips as I stared at the man in front of me and everything I was holding clattered to the floor. Eyes widening, I covered my mouth, as shock flooded my system and I backed away. In a flash he moved, zipping behind me and shutting the door. “Aubrey, please let me explain.” His words came out in a rush as he stared at me. “You’re here. How are you here? How is this possible?” Tears came, unbidden, as I took in the extremely handsome man in front of me. He’d been a boy the last time I’d seen him in person, but there was no doubt he was a man now. My traitorous body instantly reacted to being in the same room with him, just like it had in high school. Everything felt heightened and on the verge of exploding. I’d never expected to see him again—ever. I’d made my peace with it. Yet, here he was. Unspeaking, he simply continued to stare at me, a thirsty look filling his incredible blue eyes, the same blue eyes that had hypnotized me every second I’d ever spent with him. Stop! I yelled, mentally. You can’t let him affect you like this again! Pull yourself together! Steeling myself I dropped my hands. “What are you doing here?” I said, more forcefully. A soft chuckle escaped him, and the action drew my attention to his very well formed chest that was aptly highlighted in the V-neck t-shirt he was wearing. From there I drifted to his large biceps, noting he had tattoos that didn’t used to be there. “Isn’t it obvious,” he said, redirecting my focus back to his gorgeous face and his full lips—lips that used to kiss me for hours at a time. I wondered how many other women besides me had had the pleasure of his kiss now. “I seem to have discovered I have a little drug problem.” It wasn’t until then that I actually noticed how much he was shaking. Seeing that shocked me back into my routine. “Oh my gosh! I’m so sorry. You need your meds!” Glancing at the floor, I saw the pills scattered across the papers from his file. “Let me go get you some fresh ones real quick,” I added, bending to pick up what I’d dropped and trying to scoop up the papers. “Aubrey.” My name was soft on his lips as he crouched beside me, reaching out and stilling my hands with his own. Heat streaked through me instantly at the contact. “These pills are fine.” Carefully, he pried my fingers open and took the medication, popping it quickly into his mouth. Eyes never leaving me, it was as if a thousand questions were in them. “I’m sorry I shocked you, but damn girl, it’s great to see you again.” I couldn’t stand sitting here pretending we both weren’t ignoring the giant elephant in the room. Unable to hold it back anymore, I burst into tears. “You left me.” *** Read how the rest of the story unfolds TODAY!

Touching Fire - Amazon Touching Fire (book 2):

Finding my past was supposed to end the nightmare.

Only it was just the beginning.

Entrusting the fate of the world, not to mention my and Isaiah’s life to a father I had never met is a big leap of faith on my part. But it’s a necessary risk. Ashton is the key to protecting Isaiah and keeping me out of Garrison’s clutches. He is also the only one who can tell me what I am, except what I learns is that I am from a world that is far more dangerous than anyone could have possibly imagined.

As my powers grow out of control, I must pick between my mortality and a legacy that does not include Isaiah. I must summon the courage to face a destiny that will test the boundaries of everything I have ever known. But most of all, I must protect Isaiah from the monster within myself and trust the man whose toxic blood runs through my veins.

Danger builds as power clashes between two evils, both seeking me to tip the scales to eternal darkness and suffering.

Can humanity rise to face an ancient calling to which I am powerless to stop? Can I protect those I cares about or will their blood forever stain my hands?

Touch Vengeance. Touch Malice. Touch Fire.

by Michelle Graves
The Chronicles of Izzy
Genres: Boxed SetUrban Fantasy
Tour: The Chronicles of Izzy Boxed Set by Michelle Graves
Amazon • Nook
I lived an ordinary life. Perhaps it was life of loss, maybe even a lonely life, but ordinary all the same. Never in a million years could I have predicted the events that would unfold after that fateful delivery. Some Seer I was.
But that doesn't matter any more, that life, the one I'd thought was my reality, was nothing more than a weakly constructed facade. The lines between reality and fiction have blurred, leaving me with nothing but the cold hard facts. The world is vastly different than I ever understood. Guardians and Seers are real, and I have the power within me to tip the balance in a war between good and evil that had been brewing since the beginning of time. The fight was coming to a head and the outcome hinged entirely upon me.
I have to make an impossible choice. Would I step into my role as a Seer and face the growing Darkness head on, or would I cower and let everyone I loved suffer and die?
The Darkness will rise and the Prophecy remains, the Seer must Fall.
So Fall I will.
Friendships, love, and sacrifice will all play out transforming Izzy into the Seer of prophecy. Find out what happens in The Chronicles of Izzy.
