First Thought when Finished: I seriously lived in the wrong part of West Texas growing up! Operation Endgame by Christi Snow showed me Lubbock is where it is at!
What I Loved: Friends to HEA’s are always a delight to read! That doesn’t happen very often in Romantic Suspense but I think in this case it worked out perfectly. Cassie and Jake have sizzling chemistry that just smolders off the page! I love that we meet them as younger children and see the wonderful friendship that their attraction is built upon. It is hard not to love them as a couple and root for them the whole way! I love that Cassie is a history professor and game co-creator. The geeky history chic in me just adores that these play a major role in who she is and how she thinks. She is a brilliantly flushed out leading lady! The end scene was so lovingly sweet that I think I swooned a little!
What I Liked: I am a thriller reader/lover and the stalker case in Operation Endgame was really well done. I guessed about half way through who it was but there were times that I questioned my guess. I really like when the suspense keeps me guessing like that! I also really liked Jake and his protection of Cassie. He was always trying to do what he thought was the right thing.
What made me go huh?: I wish a little more time was spent on the dreams had by Cassie before the end. I have always found twins and their connection fascinating.
Final Thought: This was a great opener to the series and I can’t wait for book 2!
