Incinerated - Coast Guard Recon

Subverted

Meet Finn Walsh of the US Coast Guard’s TEAM RECON. As in reconstructed. As in broken and needs fixing.

After an abandoned ship is found in international waters, Team RECON is summoned by Homeland Security to find answers. Finn Walsh has massive reservations about boarding the empty ex-US Navy ship. His worst fears come to life he finds a hidden stash of dead bodies.

Homeland Security analyst Victory Stanhope evaluates foreign and domestic terrorist cells from the safety of a desk in Washington D.C. But when a ‘request’ to investigate an abandoned ship comes from the Director himself, Tory heads back into the field as the reluctant leader of a Coast Guard special operations team. Life becomes more interesting after she realizes that the unforgettable man she slept with once at a low point in her life is part of the team she’s overseeing.

Tory and Finn must solve the riddle of what happened to the crew of the Oceanus Explorer and who is selling government secrets to other nations.

The stakes get even higher when Tory realizes that the sinister mastermind of the treasonous plot is closer to home than she thought possible.

Immersive Romantic Suspense Thriller

Woke up at 2:00 AM this morning and couldn’t fall back asleep so I decided to read a chapter or two of SUBVERTED, the newest Coast Guard RECON book by Lori Matthews that downloaded to my Kindle yesterday. At 5:00 AM, I was still wide awake and deeply immersed in the life or death intensity of this compelling story. Matthews has once again delivered intriguing characters, edge-of-my-seat suspense, scenarios I hope never happen but am well aware could, and complex, multi-layered storytelling that kept me up – literally – all night.

If you enjoy romantic suspense thrillers that grab your attention from the start and hold it securely until you turn that final page, you won’t want to miss this book. It includes crossover characters from the first three books in the Coast Guard RECON series (which I also highly recommend) but also stands well on its own.

I Am Both In Awe Of And Frightened

I am both in awe of and frightened by the twisted ways this author’s mind works. It’s more than a simple “what’s the worst that could happen?” She takes the worst possible outcome and ups the ante by a factor of ten or more. The danger and intrigue come in a form that I think a lot of us are getting more familiar with every day with recent news reports. And this book made me stop and wonder about what’s going on in our world more than once. On the relationship front, I love that this was a spin on a second chance: one night that never had the opportunity to go anywhere then but a partnership now that could make or break both Finn and Tory’s careers. The more we learn about the amazing men that are a part of Bertrand’s Team RECON, the more I want to know. I don’t know quite what the author has up her sleeve for what’s coming next, but I know I need to read it.

Finn and Tory…they’re perfect for each other!!

I loved Finn and Tory’s story!!

Matthews really knows how to write romantic suspense in a way that grabs you right from the start. The plot keeps you turning the page all the way to the end too!

I love all the guys on this coast Guard team!! They all have their gifts that add to the team. I am really looking forward to Cain’s story next!!

If you enjoy Romantic Suspense, a team of men on the Coast Guard and some great romance, then you will love this series!!

I am very glad to see the U.S. Coast Guard getting some “PROFS”!

I am a former Coastie Radioman. I have been out so long that my Rate has become Communication Technician.

In reading ” SUBVERTED” I relived some intense times spent aboard ship in the North Atlantic during a storm.

I had to put up with the comments about being a ” Shallow Water Sailor” and why would I be stationed overseas? The Coast Guards just helps fishing boats and pleasure craft in trouble on the coast or Great Lakes of the U.S.

Anyway I find the characters to be believable and the stories entertaining. I hope you continue to add to the series. I look forward the the next installment.

Keep up the good work with these guys

Coast Guard Recon is an amazing series and Subverted is not to be missed. Government conspiracies, treason and the involvement of all the alphabet agencies add danger and suspense to this gripping story. Ex-CIA and current DHS, Tory has issues with her past that are now about to destroy her career and possibly end her life. Together with Finn and the rest of Recon and against all odds, they need to out maneuver some powerful people and stop the collapse of the US government. Edge of your seat thriller with fantastic characters that are willing to do whatever it takes. Loved it..

So honestly, this book wasn’t what I expected. Even after reading the synopsis, I was still surprised. It was a really great story that was darker and had more depth than I realized it would. I loved it! All of the characters were great and I loved the dynamic. It was a perfect balance of intrigue, romance, humor and darkness. I have not yet read the first 3 books, but you do not need to in order to full enjoy this one. You don’t feel like you missed a thing. The 2 main characters Finn and Tory have dark pasts that they have struggled to deal with and are forced to face them during the events in the book. This changes their characters throughout the story. So though there were times I was irritated with Tory, you understood where she was coming from. It deals with real life stuff, politics, new and unsteady love and trauma.

Though in any story, you want to punch the bad guys in the face, this one really delivers a doozy that will set your blood on fire.

Can’t beat a book that draws you in from the first few pages and makes you go through all the emotions at least once before you get to the end. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series. I need more of these characters and love mix of triller with a splash of romance.

Definitely would recommend to anyone. Because the romance is light enough that anyone could enjoy the book for what it is. The details the author provides are real and believable. Definitely more intrigue than mushy love. Very much along the lines of A.G Riddle’s style, whom I love.
