This story follows OUT OF THE BLUE closely.  Out of the Blue was the story of Brendan St. John and Casey Turner.  This book kicks off with the fact they are getting married soon and finds Casey’s sister, Zoe, and her best friend Victoria running some errands with the St. John brothers, Danny and Eric.  While picking up some things at the grocery store they find themselves in the middle of a robbery gone wrong.  The people responsible for said robbery won’t let them get away long enough to make it to court and they have to band together to survive.

Dee J. Adams always excels at, as the series suggests, high stakes action and adrenaline.  My favorite thing about reading her books is how much they feel like watching a movie.  They’re action packed from beginning to end and the pacing doesn’t let up.

In UNDER THE RADAR we actually get two romances, Danny and Victoria as well as Zoe and Eric.  They’re all such different characters and their connection is also very different.  I liked how they were all players in the overall suspenseful plot of the book.   On the romance front though, I felt it may have lacked some connection.  I’m not sure if it was because of the fact that they’re only getting half the page time to develop but I didn’t think the feelings rang true in the end for me.  I’m sure there’s also the fact that they went through some very dangerous things together that brought them closer, faster, but I still struggled a bit with believing in the two HEAs.

That being said, I did like the characters and the plot was definitely one that kept me on my toes reading.  Always looking forward to the next book by Ms. Adams.
