Fighting to clear her brother of murder, freelance reporter Sassy Smith is suddenly kidnapped and thrown into a truck with other women who are about to be sold…or worse. When she sees an opportunity for escape Sassy takes it, but she may have just jumped from the frying pan into the fire.
Former Marine Bryan Fisher (aka Hollywood) is no stranger to dangerous situations, or to his best friend’s little sister. When he rescues Sassy, Bryan is determined to keep her safe…if he can keep his hands off of her. Because Sassy is all grown up and not at all like the girl he used to know. But he’s got bigger problems. And with enemies coming at them from every corner, Bryan and Sassy will need to work together if they’re going to survive.
I have once again broken my rule when it comes to reading a book that is a part of a series without reading the previous books. I just didn’t have time this time to do that like I originally planned to, life just got in the way. Did I absolutely need to read the previous books? No, but I think I would have enjoyed the book a little more than I did had I read the first two books. Am I going to go back to read them and do a reread of Easy Target? Damn straight I am because I really enjoyed Easy Target and I think I found a new series that I will really like once I am caught up. I have always enjoyed military, special ops, suspense, romance types of books so this one was right up my alley.
There was plenty of action, drama, and suspense throughout the book to keep me turning the imaginary page on my kindle. I loved how Sassy was indeed sassy and Bryan had wanted Sassy for years but hadn’t acted because of his friendship with her brother. I loved the suspense, I really loved the action, but what I really loved the most was that I was drawn in and wanted to be right there in the action as if I was a part of the book myself.
If you are a fan of this type of book then I really recommend that you try out the Elite Ops series by Kay Thomas, of course start with the first book, I think you will really enjoy them. Easy Target may be the third book in the series but it is far from being the last and I look forward to reading more.

Kay Thomas didn't grow up burning to be a writer. She wasn't even much of a reader until fourth grade. That's when her sister read The Black Stallion aloud to her. For hours Kay was enthralled—shipwrecked and riding an untamed horse across desert sand. Then tragedy struck. Her sister lost her voice. But Kay couldn't wait to hear what happened in the story—so she picked up that book, finished reading it herself, and went in search of more adventures at the local library.
Today Kay lives in Dallas with her husband, two children, and a shockingly spoiled Boston terrier. Her award-winning novels have been published internationally.
