About the book: **This is a companion novella to All Fall Down (Hostage Negotiation #1)**
Rafe Kelly never thought he’d fall in love with Claire Michaels, the hostage negotiator sent to get him out of a life or death situation. Though it was easy to see from the beginning that Claire was good at her profession, Rafe quickly realized she was even better for him personally―and that they might have a future together.
When they get back from their mission in Afghanistan, however, Claire goes back to the Hostage Negotiation Team and Rafe is left to deal with the huge hole in his life after leaving the SEALs. Trying to balance an uncertain future with a new relationship is made even more complicated when a family crisis strikes. Will Rafe and Claire be able to turn to each other for strength or are they over before they’ve really begun?
My review: I love these kind of novella's. They take characters that you already love from books that you've read and allow you to see a bit more fully into those character's worlds. I really enjoyed reading this one. Claire and Rafe are complex characters, and I love them all the more from being able to read this novella about them. I thought it was fun how they had a shooting contest, I thought that was a really fun scene. I also thought the prize from that particular contest was way fun. What I really loved was the way that Rafe was able to show Claire that he cared and help her with her job just a little bit. This is a sweet, quick read that you won't want to put down!
