Publisher's Description

HOSTAGE SITUATION 

When armed robbers strike her bank, hostage negotiator Skyler Brennan's life is on the line. Rescue comes from the last person she thought she could count on—the ex-boyfriend who chose his job over their relationship. FBI agent Logan Hunter knows how much is resting on this case. The promotion of his dreams…and the safety of the woman he's never been able to forget. But when an unexpected twist in the case pulls Logan in two separate directions, he'll have to make an impossible choice. Will he manage to have it all by Christmas—a career and love—or will he lose them both? 

First Responders: Brave men and women alert and ready for danger and love.

    Exciting start to what looks to be a fantastic new series. I love how the author takes the time to set up the characters who will 'star' in the next books. There's such camaraderie amongst Skyler's squad. Kindred spirits in a self-made family. And take a look at the cover. Wait...isn't that a fire station in the picture? But this is a book about an FBI agent and a deputy sheriff so how does that book cover fit? Perfectly. Uber cool, actually. You'll have to read Silent Night Standoff to find out why.

    Taut action and plenty of suspense keep Skyler and Logan on high alert...and conveniently interrupt the rekindling of a past romance. Skyler is still smitten, but she's older and wiser. Logan never stopped loving Skyler but his priorities are all messed up. Stubborn, stubborn man. There's a touching Christmas tie-in that wraps up their love story in perfect holiday fashion. An awesome holiday read!

    Fans of Dee Henderson will enjoy this series by Susan Sleeman. First book in the First Responders series, the starkness of the first sentence creates immediate tension that builds upwards as the crisis ensues. Skyler Brennan is a hostage negotiator that finds herself by chance in the middle of a robbery by a dangerous couple dubbed "Bonnie and Clyde." While Skyler has a team of co-workers who are surrogate family, more tension is introduced when her former boyfriend, FBI agent Logan Hunter returns. He asserts his authority over the team which both irritates and pleases Skyler.

    With the hostage crisis only partially resolved, much of Logan's time back in town focuses on protecting Skyler. So he can get his promotion to please his implacable father. When the chips are down, which will Logan finally choose, his career, as he did years earlier, or his love for Skyler? Both seem to have a powerful hold over the man, but which will be the making or breaking of this confused man? Perhaps "Silent Night Standoff" refers to more than just the robbery, but to Skyler's aversion to totally trust Logan... he just can't seem to get over the importance of his father's blessing that will come with a promotion.

    Wow! I didn't think I liked Logan very much... then I realized just how much a parent's blessing can mean to a child. It can even be terribly important to an adult child who is a Christian. I thought this book was better for the fact that the two main characters had some outstanding flaws(don't we all!) and they seemed to realize that growth would come by littles. I'm anxious to see which one of Skyler's "team" Sleeman will focus on next! They are all a little quirky!!

    I received this ARC book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
