On This Mission, There Are No Accidents…

Pararescueman Jose “Cuervo” James is the guy they call for the most dangerous assignments. He lives for his job.

On a high-risk rescue deep in the African jungle, Jose encounters sexy, smart Interpol agent Stella Carson. They’d once had an affair that burned hot and fast, but family is everything to Stella, and Jose just can’t go there.

Fate has thrown them into the deadly hot zone together, and sparks will fly…but only if they can live to tell about it.


Review: Free Fall is a military adventure but also a romance novel. Stella and Jose had such chemistry you could feel it oozing off the page. They were both so alpha and gave 110% to their jobs and also to each and every assignment they were given. But they were always aware of each other with an almost hypersensitivity even when they didn’t want to be. The story was so real and believable and took so many twists and turns to keep me guessing at what might happen next. Even though a military story there was an unbelievable amount of romance and love along with friends and family, heartache and tears, some laughter and lots of intrigue. The prologue and epilogue were ingenious both to get me involved in the story and also give me the background on Stella and Jose. It also gave me the closure I needed with several unexpected happily ever afters.

It’s been awhile since I’ve read one of Mann’s books but she is definitely moving up my TBR pile. This book – fourth in the Elite Forces series – kept me engrossed so much that I didn’t want to put it down and finished it in less than 24 hours. I haven’t read books 1, 2 or 3 in the series but I will definitely be going back to do so. This was so well written that I didn’t realize it was part of a series and I didn’t feel there were any missing gaps to the storyline. I look forward to reading the other books in the series already written along with others that may be in the pipeline. Pick up a book by Mann if you haven’t done so already. You’ll be glad you did!

Favorite Quote: Still, his face, those eyes, they held her, and while she wasn’t a mystical person, she couldn’t miss the connection. Attraction? Sure, but she understood how to compartmentalize on the job. This was something that felt elemental. Before she could stop the thought, the words soul mate flashed through her head.
