Ring Around the Rosie (Hostage Negotiation Team #4) by: Julie Coulter Bellon


Revenge is a dish best served cold . . .

As the ex-wife of a law enforcement officer, Sarah Reed has known loneliness and loss. In order to cope, she makes a life for herself that’s full of routine while building a wall of ice around her heart. Everything about her is as predictable as she can make it until a tiny detour for her ex-husband, Ron, changes her life forever. Caught in a bomb crisis, Sarah is taken hostage by a man who wants Ron and everyone around him to suffer---and his idea of suffering is more terrible than Sarah had ever dreamed.

Captain Ron Reed has seen the worst of humanity in his job with the Hostage Negotiation Team, but he never expected his past to come back with a vengeance---literally. Aaron Starks, a criminal explosives expert, has stolen next-gen bomb technology and uses it to force Ron to bargain for the lives of his team and his ex-wife, Sarah, the woman he still loves. But the situation escalates when Ron discovers that Starks has an even bigger objective in mind---using the bomb to show how vulnerable America and her people truly are.

Ron is willing to risk everything to save his country and those he loves, but when negotiations break down, will his sacrifice be too little too late?

This book was everything I expected #4 to be. It was full of action and suspense from the start. Julie was able to keep me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I love how she is able to pull a female and male audience with her books. Because men love the action and the hostage negotiation part of it. Whereas, a woman can still enjoy them just as much because she throws in hints of romance throughout. I loved Sarah and Ron's story and how they were able to remember what they once had and work together as a team! Another great book Julie! Can't wait to read more!
