Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Riveting readOctober 8, 2021Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A riveting read! Lynette Eason keeps you on your toes and enthralled with the story between Ava and Caden and the person who is out to harm Ava. It's also exciting to see the characters you fall in love with throughout the series appear in this book. It's like one big family. Ava and Caden's story is full of intrigue and I always enjoy seeing how the author gets the characters out of sticky situations and do it in a way that is realistic. I found myself more interested than normal in how Ava was going to get out of the situation she found herself in at the end and was extremely pleased with how she did it.

preppybookprincess4 Stars Out Of 5The Best of the SeriesSeptember 17, 2021preppybookprincessQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Hostile Intent is the explosive finale to Lynette Eason's Danger Never Sleeps, and it ended up being my personal favorite of the series. Ava and Caden's story is a roller coaster from start to finish, and I had a hard time putting this one down once I picked it up.
I've always loved the trope of childhood friends becoming something more in their adult years, and the author pulls off this type of romance beautifully and effortlessly. Caden and Ava grew up together, but there's a whole side of her life that he knew nothing about, until it seems to connect with a serial murder case he's currently working on.
Lynette Eason is truly one of the best at crafting suspense stories that keep the reader at the edge of their seats for the entire story, and Hostile Intent is definitely my new favorite by her. The plot twists and turns, includes sinister elements that no one could have ever been prepared for, and showcases a beautiful romance starting to develop between the two main leads. I also appreciated the fact that while the faith element is not really at the front and center of the book, it's something that is important to both Ava and Caden and seemed to truly be a part of them that they definitely relied on, even in the midst of the dark, dark tunnel they've found themselves in.
A heart pounding nail biter, this one is definitely a great choice for fans of Christian suspense, and a perfect ending to a great series!
Final Rating: 4/5.

Stardust FiddleAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Promises Broken, Promises KeptSeptember 16, 2021Stardust FiddleAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Bestselling Christian fiction author Lynette Eason brings her Danger Never Sleeps tetralogy to an electrifying finale with "Hostile Intent." As with the previous three books in this series, this one can be read as a standalone, although there is strong character overlap and therefore spoilers; having previously read only the first book so far myself, I still encourage everyone to read all of them for the pleasure of the plot intricacies and the obvious research that has gone into them. Even as someone who typically shies away from contemporary military stories, I could not put this book down, and it definitely increased my heart rate a time or two!
From the first page, "Hostile Intent" ratchets up the suspense and lays the foundation for an intense romantic thriller. A caveat is necessary for those who are profoundly disturbed by the murder of children, as well as violence and torture because they are integral to the plot, but Eason handles these sensitive issues with grace and leaves out graphic details. As such, while this may not be a light read, it does take on the all-too-real brutality and antagonism that fuels so many in modern society, offering some insight into how this type of behavior comes about and where it can lead when left unchecked: "Just two more families and his mission would be complete, his promise kept. His grandmother was wrong. Vengeance didn't belong to God. It belonged to him. And it tasted sweet." However, teaching someone to hate another person or group of people for any transgression, perceived or real, will never lead to a positive outcome for anyone.
Amidst this backdrop of reprisal, Ava Jackson, who recently left the Navy to care for her dying mother, finds herself somehow involved in a case of several murdered families, of which hers might be next. Working with FBI Special Agent Caden Denning to put the puzzle pieces together before time runs out, the duo uncover secrets that someone went to great lengths to conceal--and keep that way. Just as revenge can be a powerful motivator, so too the desire to protect the ones you love, even at the cost of personal sacrifice. After all, Jesus Himself showed us that sometimes the most unpleasant situations can lead to the most blessed destinations. As Caden remarks, "It's funny how life can throw you a curve ball when you least expect it--or how God can change your perspective."
