Melmo2610Buffalo MOAge: 35-44Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Action Packed ReadJanuary 27, 2020Melmo2610Buffalo MOAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My rating is a 3.5 on Lynette's newest read. This book is certainly action packed. It starts off with action just a few pages in and it's a thrill ride from start to finish. I liked Brooke and Asher and meeting the side characters we are sure to see more of as the series continues. The plot was interesting and unique but the what the crime ended up being was a little much for this Mama's heart. There was also another plot twist that wasn't my favorite element. It fit the storyline well, but the evil in this book was a mite overwhelming to me. That being said, Lynette crafted a well plotted story that moved extremely well. It was a fairly easy read as I read most of it in one day. Looking forward to the next in the series later this summer.

Lilian S4 Stars Out Of 5Collateral Damage | Book ReviewJanuary 23, 2020Lilian SQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I loved this book! First let's talk about the title and cover Collateral Damage is such a cool title. I've always loved the word collateral because it sounds so cool and I love that it's part of a title of one of Eason's books. xD And the different colors and design of the cover is stunning! This is the first time I've gotten a spiral-bound 8 by 11 ARC and it was lovely reading it.
I finished this book in less than three hours and read it in one sitting. It's been rare recently for me to enjoy a book to that extent (where it'll keep me reading for hours), and I think part of what made that happen for me was that I was expecting a gem from Eason and got one. Lynette Eason is absolutely amazing at getting a reader's heart racing with her masterful way of writing intense scenes, but also calming down the reader during the sweet and slow moments.
Collateral Damage features main characters former military psychiatrist Brooke Adams and Former Army Special Ops Sergeant First Class Asher James. From the moment I met Brooke, I couldn't help but be drawn into how relatable her character is to mine. Her personality is extremely to mine, down to the sarcasm, and that made it all the more amazing to read this book. I also really enjoyed how even though Brooke and Asher had a really rough past respectively, they got past it in order to help and serve and love each other, especially with Brooke helping Asher deal with his PTSD and vice versa. I found that super sweet. I also found a favorite character in Sarah, Caden's* sister, and the part she played in the book; I really respected how much she had a heart for the children in the orphanage she was serving.
*and if there happens to be a book featuring Caden, I'd snap that up and read it in a second! I loved the glimpse we got of Caden's character and would love to read more about him.
There were so many characters and side plots going on that if I was thrown into the rough of it, I'd be completely muddled and would probably stop reading, but Eason did an absolutely superb job of leading the reader into it and I didn't find myself getting confused at all with which character was which.
Overall, Lynette Eason spins an amazingly well-written suspense and lovable characters that I think any thriller / suspense reader would love. 4 stars.

mypreciousbitsandmusings5 Stars Out Of 5Fast-paced and Interesting ReadJanuary 22, 2020mypreciousbitsandmusingsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My final conclusion is wow!!!
This sure was an interesting story and I definitely didn't want it to end. The book held me captive from beginning to end.
I sure had no idea who the culprit was until the end. The many interwoven characters from different aspects of law enforcement and how the plot blended them together was definitely interesting.
Brooke and Asher bonded from shared trauma and experiences. Fighting to stay alive and also bring down the bad guys who were part of what seemed to be an international crime ring. The issues brought forth from PTSD to human trafficking, I love how she dealt with these topics with grace. Brooke is a fighter and though she still has some issues from her time in Afghanistan, I love how she still put herself out there to try and help others.
The faith elements in the story were also wonderful, you were created for a reason. The romance wasn't overly there but blended well with the story and it's fast paced nature.
Overall, this was another win for me in this genre and I'm definitely looks forward to the next book in the series.

ConnieKentuckyAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Great Series Beginning!January 21, 2020ConnieKentuckyAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Suspected treachery. An ambush of Army troops. An explosion in a cafe. Collateral Damage begins with danger and excitement and these two elements continue throughout the book. Asher James and Brooke Adams both face near death during their Army service in Afghanistan but their individual returns to civilian life don't prove to be any safer. Brooke sets up private practice as a psychiatrist but soon becomes a target and it is former Army Sergent James who becomes involved in her protection. Asher is now a FBI agent and he and Brooke feverishly race to learn who is trying to harm her. Is there a cover-up involving incidents from their Army service? Were secrets really sold to jihadists and if so, was an innocent soldier labeled a traitor? Is it possible that there is something much more sinister that someone is hiding? Something worth killing for?
This is the first book of a new series from Lynette Eason and she definitely grabbed my attention with her depiction of the ugliness of war and its aftermaths. Collateral Damage has villians, intrigue, and unthinkable acts caused by greed but Eason also adds heroes, faith, and the Christian values that our country was built on. Reading this book increased my pulse rate and caused me to lose sleep but it was definitely worth these side effects! This is romantic suspense at its best and I truly enjoyed Collateral Damage. I'm looking forward to the next book in the Danger Never Sleeps series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell but I was under no obligation to leave a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Collateral DamageJanuary 21, 2020Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have enjoyed previous books written by Lynnette Eason in the past and Collateral Damage is by far my favorite I have read by her to date. It is a fabulous beginning to her new series, Danger Never Sleeps. This suspense filled tale is one that made me not want to put it down until I had the whole book read in one sitting. Which was time well spent.
Collateral Damage gets five plus stars from me. I look forward to reading the next installment from the Danger Never Sleeps series. I can not wait for its release.
