This is my honest review
Rating: 5 Stars - Excellent

Everything I wanted in a thrilling romantic suspense!

I’ve been pretty lucky lately reading some good romantic suspense. I was given the opportunity to read Beyond Limits…wow, wow, wow!!! My first time reading anything from Laura Griffin, and Beyond Limits went way beyond any of my expectations!

From the beginning I was hooked into the story as Navy SEAL Derek Vaughn and his team discover something huge during a rescue mission in Afghanistan. When he returns home he crosses paths with the one woman he couldn’t stop thinking about since their first meeting, FBI agent Elizabeth LeBlanc. As it becomes evident that an attack might be unleashed on a major U.S. city very soon, Derek and Elizabeth quickly combine their expertise in order to thwart an act of terrorism from happening.

I devoured every single page of Beyond Limits! This is exactly the type of romantic suspense that I LOVE! It has a fast-paced, intricate, and thrilling plot that keeps you on pins and needles all throughout the story. I liked that Derek and Elizabeth already knew each other and couldn’t stop thinking about the other while they were apart. Derek had it bad for Elizabeth and pretty much made it his mission to pursue her as soon as he could. When Derek focuses on something he wants, he doesn’t waste time! Despite their issues, the chemistry generated was absolutely delectable. I really couldn’t get enough of these two!

I read Beyond Limits so quickly that I ended up reading it again at a leisurely pace. I enjoyed it even more the second time! This was my first Tracers novel, and I had no problem reading it as a standalone. I’m so curious now about the other books in the series that I definitely will make time to read them all while waiting for the next one!
