Negotiating Point

Private Protectors, #4

Negotiating Point was an awesome read. I absolutely loved it. The characters were awesome. In Negotiating Point you get to see and revisit some of the characters from previous books and meet new ones. Gavin is called into Mike's office, his boss, and finds out that Mike’s wife has been kidnapped and is pregnant. Gavin has been called to negotiate her release because they can't take a chance of her getting injured. Vic wants to go in hot but he gets ruled out. Gavin calls in Janet from the IT department to help him out. Gavin and Vic continue fighting and arguing about what way is better. Janet helps them to locate where they are holding Roxanne and they set up a plan for Gavin to start negotiations.

I absolutely loved Gavin and Janet. They were awesome characters and extremely well written. I loved their personalities and the way that they interacted with each other. It was a very stressful situation with a lot of pressure and yet the characters interacted really well together. They understood each other and knew what they needed. There is a sexual tension between them from the very beginning but they don't want to act on it because they work together. The emotions is definitely there by the time they get together because they knew each other before. The sex is explicit but not frequent. The story is fairly short and the situation they are in doesn't allow for a lot of chances. There is enough action/suspense in this story to keep the reader's attention. Once I started reading I didn't want to stop.

This is part of a series, the fourth installment of the Private Protectors. You could read this story without having read the others and not have a major problem and wouldn't be confused but you would miss out a little bit because it is a previous character that has been kidnapped. I really enjoyed the fact that I got to revisit characters from before. It's a great series and I can't wait for more.
