Remembering Sandra Robbins and her novel: Targeted

Targeted (Firebrand #1)

Title:  Targeted (Firebrand Series #1)
Author:  Sandra Robbins
Pages:  272
Year: 2016
Publisher:  Sandra Robbins
My rating is 5+ out of 5 stars.
Having laid the groundwork for readers to know Ash’s and Lainey’s relationship in Igniting the Flame, we get to see what happens to them as the story continues.  There is a lot of tension in the book both personal between these two people and in the family.  Lainey has a problem with Ash, especially when he breaks a promise.  With her having no other support, her feelings of loneliness increase exponentially.  Ash is on a covert mission and therefore unreachable; however, his brother Richard and his father step in to care for Lainey.
One of the issues between Ash and Lainey is that the service is almost like a mistress and a demanding one at that, which makes being married something the three friends Ash, Colt and Reese try to avoid.  There is someone from one of Ash’s past missions who is seeking revenge.  However, this person is not only after Ash, but Lainey and her son Max as well.  The secret Lainey has kept from Ash for a decade will now become known whether she wants it revealed or not.  The surprising fact is who tells Ash what he doesn’t know.
The novel is filled with high suspense, danger, and internal as well as external conflicts.  I couldn’t put the book down until I read how the various aspects of the story and the characters’ lives were going to conclude.  The series is of top notch storytelling and I believe many will become captured with the danger always lurking until the enemy is found and eradicated. 
Read and find out how the two most stubborn and broken characters, Ash and Lainey, might find forgiveness and healing in Targeted!

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
