Lawrence (Laurie) Madigan is rescued by his team from Command Force Alpha, but feels like he is still in prison while they try to evaluate him. Gemma is the team’s resident shrink, but feels like he is blocking her regardless of their past relationship. What happens when Laurie escapes, taking Gemma hostage?

The second book in the Command Force Alpha series, Snap, deals with a man that has undergone extensive torture, both physical and mental.  He is out for revenge, since he identified who sold him out to a new terrorist organization that was under the Command Force Alpha’s radar and who identified him as a British SAS member.

Gemma and Laurie have always been attracted to each other since they first met, but never acted on it as Gemma was engaged at the time.  Even after that ended, they maintained a best friend type of friendship, though both secretly wanted more.  Once Laurie returns from his captivity, things change between them, but trust is a hard thing to give once betrayed.  The chemistry between them is intense, but both have to come to terms with the people they are now.

A few characters from Own show up to help Laurie find the person he’s looking for, but a situation with his tormentor changes Laurie’s priorities.  I loved how strong Gemma really is, and how both she and Laurie find a solution to break through that last barrier he has so he comes fully back to the team. 

The Command Force Alpha series is an extremely intense suspense series that will keep your interest throughout.  The author has done a good job keeping the covert ops situations realistic, and some of the descriptions of the torture in Snap may be disturbing.  I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series and I will be reading the stories again.
