4 stars Full review posted October 30, 2014One of my favorite scenes Clay Bauer s team is attending a security conference in New Orleans Top people from every important agency in the U.S as well as from abroad are in town to discuss terrorism, drug wars and illegal immigration Tucker s cousin, the confident Zoe Renard, is an ex lawyer who gave up her career to become a writer of romantic horror stories and is also volunteering at a women s shelter in New Orleans Of course Tucker and his buddies [...]
3.7 Stars I liked this book for the most part, however, I could not give stars prior to my personal tastes which were both Hero and heroine were married before I know this is not a big deal for many, but for me it deterred a bit from my full enjoyment of the love story I like my Heroes and heroines to be the most special one and not second best, which was in a way for both here On a positive light, the Hero has never allowed his true nature to materialised whilst being married to his wifeey wer [...]
The third book in the Hostage Rescue Team series by Kaylea Cross FBI Special Agent Clay Bauer is in New Orleans with several members of HRT for some kind of conference nearby and they visit Tuck s cousin, Zoe Renard, since they are there Clay finds the quirky lady sexy and when trouble comes along he steps up.Another good addition to the series I loved the characters and the story and there really isn t much to say I am enjoying this series.
Of course I enjoyed this one It s Bauer and ZOE Push ups and Suit porn Heeellllooooo
I thought Clay and Zoe would make an interesting couple when they appeared and sort of flirted in the last book It was fun watching them do the dance in this book, to see Clay do the subtle mine, hands off gestures to the guys in his team, how his BFF who is also Zoe s cousin, warn Zoe about Clay The thing is that they worked She admired his strength, while he admired her quirkiness I could have done with out the battered woman on the run, but then how else could we have gotten the HRT in I did [...]
I really really enjoyed this book The HRT men and the women they ultimately loose their hearts to are Amazing This is Clay and Zoe s story along with some of the other HRT men Clay is a quiet take charge when necessary seal and Zoe is a quirky I am who I am and I don t care if you like me or my style kinda gal I loved her uniqueness her attitude and her ability to love and live her life after an abusive marriage I loved how she pulled Clay out of his shell after his bitch of an ex tried to ruin [...]
4.25 RATING If you haven t read the earlier books in the Hostage Rescue Team series, I d recommend starting with the first one, Marked While each book could work as a stand alone just fine, there seems to be a bit of a lead in to the next book in each one Sometimes in a series you have to read one book to get to the one you want but each book in the Hostage Rescue Team series has been a good, solid, enjoyable read and I can recommend them all Hunted was definitely no exception I really liked the [...]
This series just keeps getting better with each book Zoe is such a unique character I loved her when she was introduced in book 2 She is best friends with Celida and cousin to Tuck She is everything I like in my h as she is not shy about saying what she wants and does not take sh t from anyone She lives in New Orleans and is a writer She also helps out with families who are in need This story begins with her aiding a mother and son escape an abusive boyfriend The boyfriend has connections and so [...]
This action packed story kept me on the edge of my seat Clay Bauer is an FBI agent attending a security convention in New Orleans when he sees Zoe again He s known Zoe for years and although he s always been attracted to her, he keeps his distance because she s his best friend s cousin and he doesn t want to hurt her Unfortunately, Clay s ex wife changed his outlook on all women, and since his disastrous marriage, he doesn t have any interest in getting involved with anyone I liked Clay He s a b [...]
Kaylea Cross is one of my auto purchase authors and I love all of her hero s heroines.Clay was blind sided in the past by his ex wife, so that has caused him to be weary of women and to write off all women Well, all women, except for the one that s off limits to him because of who she is his partners cousin Zoe He wants her but knows that he is no good for her and thinks he will hurt her in the end Zoe doesn t know much about what happened between Clay and his ex wife, but she knows enough to kn [...]
Received an ARC from NetGalley for reviewGreat book, heavy on the action and suspense with a perfect amount of romance I love Zoe and her sass and knowing exactly what she wanted I would have like to have seen of Clay s dominate side, but what we did see was amazing He was the perfect guy for Zoe Now I have to wait till next year to read the next book, Matt and the mysterious B if I tell you about her, I d have to kill you.
Great story, great characters I love Zoe Really enjoyable, can t wait for another
This is my favorite book in the series so far The characters are refreshingly unique, something like this isn t seen in thrilling romances.For rating and review breakdown, please feel free to read my blog review of this book at flidaisdail 2017 07 07 h
Best book of this series thus far really pageturning and unsettling I liked Zoe and Clay from the beginning and was so looking forward to their story.
I m going stop reading the series here It s entirely too predictable to derive any enjoyment I gave the series a chance.
I like spirited and vibrant Zoe, but I love me some Bauer
This book was a little different from the others I ve read by Kaylea Cross, and while not one of my favorites, I did enjoy it It had very interesting characters, an engrossing storyline, and plenty of action.
This third book in the Hostage Rescue Team series has it allspense, intrigue, romance, humor, heart tugging moments I couldn t put it down.Clay and Zoe are my favorite characters in this series yet From the set up background we got on them in book 2 I was anxious for their story Clay s back story is touchy and Zoe is the perfect foil for him Her independence and lack of concern over what others think of her is just what he needs to help him heal.The suspense part of this story related to an abus [...]
Things are getting intense in the Hostage Rescue Team HRT series by Kaylea Cross In Hunted, Intense should really be Clay Bauer s middle name He is an intimidating HRT member and I think Zoe Renard is the only person on the planet that could get under that tough exterior We meet both of these characters in earlier books Bauer is teammate to Tuck and Zoe is Tuck s cousin She also happens to be Celida s best friend So, Bauer runs into her an awful lot Cross set Bauer and Zoe up great in Targeted a [...]
3.5 for the story Due to errors in facts timeline the gross violence Others will not be bothered by this so DO NOT let it prevent you from reading Still a good book 4.5 stars for the characters Error location 3854 Note Thought this took place in Sept It was mentioned that DeLuca thought it was stupid to hold the conference so close to Sept 11.w it says 6 weeks later, it it ALMOST Halloween Wished the timeline was fleshed out The 1st night seems to be endless too They meet to go to the bar at 9 [...]
This series just keeps getting better with each book Clay wasn t as outgoing or approachable as Jake and Tuck He was jaded, had serious trust issues with women and thought most women were manipulative A little background in the previous book revealed that Clay had once been married then divorced, but it had left scars He was jaded and thought most women were manipulative With good reason Zoe was wow I loved her After her own failed divorce, she really took life by the horns and made it bend to h [...]
I m so glad I discovered this series This is book three and although they are each standalone books, reading them in sequence will explain all the character s relationships and let you know what s been going on.Clay Bauer had a really bad first marriage and swore he d never again fall for another woman But something about Zoe brings him to life and makes him want to feel again Zoe is Tuck s cousin and knows Clay was hurt, but she doesn t rush him and only hopes he ll be willing to give them a ch [...]
Originally posted HERE.I have fallen a little behind on Kaylea Cross books, even though she is one of my favourite romantic suspense authors So I haven t read anything in the Hostage Rescue Team series yet All the same, Hunted was a great read and I didn t feel like I was missing out on too much backstory by reading out of order.There re a few things that set Cross apart from other authors in the genre.The first thing is her excellent research There s no info dumping, but the way the research is [...]

Kaylea Cross s Hunted brings 2 very, very different people a former Seal turned FBI and a Goth romance horror writer together Clay and Zoe had been introduced to us in Targeted, but a security conference and a domestic abuse case blown wide open reunite them in New Orleans Clay and Zoe do burn up the sheets and with their story already set up in the previous book, their blatant need for each other is pretty much present from the onset, although the sexy times are less risque here than the hot, s [...]
I had been looking forward to Clay and Zoe s story and was not disappointed Zoe and Clay have been attracted to each other for a long time but Clay wants to stay away from her because he doesn t trust women He had a bad marriage and even worse divorce Zoe has also been divorced but hasn t let that bring her down She changed her life to bring it in lone who who she is instead of trying to keep things hidden like she did while she was married Clay can no longer stay away from Zoe and their relatio [...]
Originally published in booksandspoons.weebly book blogHeartrendingly beautiful love story with breathtaking action and suspense.Clay and Zoe are absolutely marvelous together Clay is so broken from past experience that has turned him into a cynic when it comes to love, such a big alpha warrior, but so vulnerable Zoe is strong and independent, holds nothing back, Goth girl to the last detail Together they are so accepting of each other, loving, and tender The friendship they have built over the [...]
Kayla Cross Hunted Hostage Rescue Team Series Book 3 In Book 3 of the HRT Series, is focused on FBI Special Agent Clay Bauer and Zoe Renard We have met both of in Books 1 and 2 Bauer is cynical and doesn t trust women, but is drawn to Zoe and can t get her out of his mind He will not give into the pull for her and risk his heart again He only allows causal hookups and Zoe is not that kind of woman When Bauer went to New Orleans for a conference and when Zoe is targeted by a mad man do you see a [...]
Zoe finally Finally Zoe and Clay s story I really loved their interactions in the previous book Zoe is so quirky and confident, and Clay is so serious and unsure When these two finally get together, it is off the charts the patio sceneOh my Zoe is my favorite character in this series so far She never gives in or gives up The idea of straight laced Clay with purple haired pierced Zoe was interesting, but the reality of it was beyond my expectations and hot as you know what Once Clay accepted how [...]
