The Medusa Project Silhouette Bombshell ePUB ✓

The Medusa Project Silhouette Bombshell Six bad ass babes go through Special Forces training Basically GI Jane with romantic elementsThis was an entertaining military romance hampered by the shackles of category romance rules This is my first Bombshell the now defunct line of Silhouette and if it's an example of the line I can see why it failed The story is solid the writing is engaging but I felt that the romance was misplaced Clearly I could be wrong it's rare but it happens snort but the story felt like an editor marked it up with 'you need to add some romance earlier' or 'throw in a kiss here' I have to say at least we weren't treated with the eye rolling sex while on the run from bad guys or on a mission thank god but there is also a lack of depth in the connection between the heroine and the hero The lack of a sex scene was also puzzling because there were places where it could have happened without being ridiculousThe real shame is that this story had the potential of being a sexier version of Tom Clancy with a female protagonist I SO want to read a book like that The Medusa Project is well written and the military aspects are top notch but even at 300 odd pages it is too short and felt truncated in order to hit the minimum romantic rules of the category In essence this was a 'love story' the hookup not necessary for the plot to happen masuerading as a 'romance' the plot wouldn't happen without the hookup I will definitely read the other Medusa series but will keep in mind that due to category restrictions they are romances in a military environment instead of military love stories Air Force Major Vanessa Blake had been handpicked to lead the first all female Special Forces team the Medusas But there was one bit of classified information the military hadn't shared with her their trainer tough as nails Lieutenant Colonel Jake Scatalone was under orders to prove women had no place in Special Forces No matter how well Vanessa and her team performed they would failThen Scatalone disappeared on a crucial mission in hostile territory And Vanessa made the military a deal it couldn't refuse send in the Medusas If they succeeded they would become an official team If they died no one would ever have to know I absolutely love these books I hate the marketing thoughI first discovered Cindy Dees when I did my RTR projectMs Dees had won a 2010 RITA for the book The Soldier's Secret Daughter As I was reading that book I sensed that the author had first hand experience in the military When I looked up information about Cindy Dees I realized my hunch was correct; I found out that not only was she the youngest female pilot in the history of the Air Force but she also earned degrees in Russian and East European Studies from the University of Michigan She wrote numerous books for the Silhouette line the most popular being the Medusa books; the undiscovered bad arse female butt kicking multicultural Angelina Jolie like all female Special Forces team The books are hard to find now a days but easily and cheaply available as ebooks Start with the Medusa Project and have fun with the rest Ugh i don’t even know This is the book for you if you love military stuff and love the lingo and really get behind the whole rah rah soldiers are a cut above the rest stuff The romance is subpar it’s very much relies on the army knowledge the characters are okay i guess Not a satisfying read I disliked the male love interest intensely He was very anti women in the army misogynistic and closed off and literally didn’t grow at all That’s all This is a story about a group of women who go through Special Forces training Expected to fail they none the less succeed They have an unexpected chance to go on a mission and end up proving their worth to the powers that be Whenever I am in a reading funk I pull out this book to read It always pulls me out of the funk I was in and this time is no exception This is a wonderful book with humor action and shows the strength of women in the military Air Force Major Vanessa Blake had almost given up on getting her dream of joining a Special Forces unit and she jumps at the chance of joining a team An all femal Special Forces Team nicknamed the Medusas Lieutenant Colonel Jake Scatalone is their trainer with a mission to prove that there is no place for women in Special ForcesAlong the way both sides learn a lot from each other including respect When the training is over and they're informed that no matter how well they had performed there was no succeeding they jump at the chance of helping Scatalone when he disappears on a mission Vanessa strikes a deal to prove the worth of her teamYes there is romance as well after all it is a Mills and Boon but it's not the main focus of the story the main focus is on training up a team of gutsy women and having them proove themselves and not in a sexist or demeaning way these women know their jobs and the author knows military I really loved this book This was one of the best books I have ever read it had an amzing plot and I definately want to read I would definately recommend this to my friends Just discover this author Loved it couldn't put it down I LOVEMILITARYCOUPLES
