Hello lovelies! Please bear with me while I make the transition back from WordPress to Blogger. I need to go through and insert images and do some more tweaks.

#Review FREEDOM CODE (Sleeper SEALs #11) by @elainelevine #NewRelease #RomanticSuspense #FavoriteAuthor

Freedom CodeTitle: Freedom Code
Author: Elaine Levine
Series: Sleeper SEALs #11
Publisher: Self-Published
Format: eBook
Release date: February 6th, 2018

When CIA Agent Mike Folsom is found beheaded in a Denver alley hours after speaking to an informant about a potential terrorist cell being formed in the local Muslim community, retired SEAL Levi Jones is activated to find his killer. The informant herself is a suspected co-conspirator...but she’s the only one who can bring him inside the close-knit community.

Zaida Hassan knows her parents are disappointed with her—and not because she writes sexy contemporary romances. No, they’re upset with her for something much more salacious--she’s failed to settle down in a marriage and provide them with grandchildren.

Zaida’s grateful her parents don’t know the worst of her secrets. But Jamal Abd al-Mukhtar does, and he’s leveraging that knowledge against her. He’s the reason she sought out Agent Mike Folsom, a friend from way back. The help Mike sends her is a man straight from the pages of her stories, with eyes like a blue mountain lake and a heart of obsidian.

When she learns Mike has been murdered, she knows Levi Jones has come not to save her but to destroy her.

The Sleeper SEALs are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on U.S. soil.

Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel and the series does not have to be read in order.

It's been quite some time since I have written a review for Elaine. That in no way, means that I have not been devouring each and every one of her books. When people ask who my favorite author is, Elaine is in the numero uno spot and has held it down for years now. But I digress. I could go on and on about her books and the lovely author herself for some time.

On to the review.

This is a new one from Elaine that is different from her Red Team series. We thankfully get to see some of the beloved characters from the Red Team, so that was a nice surprise. What's different about this series is the feel of it is not as heavy as her other romantic suspense. Our main squeeze, Levi, is pretty humorous for a good portion of the book.

We are introduced to Zaida and I instantly loved her backbone and way of thinking. She is a refreshing change that I'm not used to reading. As always, Elaine writes female characters that are relatable and someone you can see yourself becoming good friends with.

The steam was on point, the mystery factors left me on the edge of my seat. Elaine is a master at weaving a tale that leaves you wondering how she does it.

It was an excellent read and I can't wait to read more exciting books from Elaine!
