I got three of this genre of books @ the same time, and I really liked this one! I think I enjoyed it because Chelsea kind of comes into her own and really breaks into a stronger, more independent character and Jonah kind of breaks his rock facade...together it is a good combination....and comes to a really suspenseful, great conclusion. I know I said the SWAT one was my favorite...but thinking about it I think this one is a close second, if not a tie for first! :)

Chelsea Swann, medical examiner at Bear Creek gets kidnapped by escaping prisoners from nearby prison, ARX Supermax. The four escapees are 3 terrorists and undercover operator Jonah Fairfax. Jonah manages to keep Chelsea alive and both must work together to stop the terrorists from an evil plot.

Overall: Rather one dimensional bad guys (the leader was named Al-Jihad, which amused me), a hokey plot involving many law enforcement professionals not following procedure, and I didn't really buy the attraction between the two main characters. I felt irritated by the continual repetitions of Jonah thinking of Chelsea as being "sweet", and seeing her as a representation of all that is good about America (apple pie, picket fences, the American Dream), and of Chelsea taking note of Jonah's piercing blue eyes. There was also a weird back story where Jonah's first wife cheated on him and died during a miscarriage, which Jonah remembers as a "betrayal" which pushed him into his current loner state. What? She's DEAD now you know! What I did like in this book was the eventual backbone and self-awareness that Chelsea develops through the book. I'd give this book an "Eh". ALSO: He never wears a cowboy hat in this story so what's with the cover?
