BOOK REVIEW- Phoenix (Linear Tactical #8) ) by Janie Crouch *

Adrenaline junky. 
Adventure traveler. 
Extreme sport sensation.
They’re all labels Riley Harrison—known to the world as Phoenix—wears as easily as the tattoos covering his body. 
But it’s his role as undercover operative for Linear Tactical’s kidnap and ransom unit that makes his blood sing. Riley uses his celebrity status to help infiltrate locations and situations nobody else can get into.
In. Out. The fight is usually over before the bad guys know it’s begun or that Riley was involved. 
But his skills and celebrity status won’t help when he discovers the woman he loves is keeping unbearable secrets and in a danger he never could’ve imagined.
She wants Riley to stay far away from her.
That’s not going to happen.
But he’ll have to be willing to lose everything to save her. To save them.
Phoenix will learn you have to burn before you can rise.  AMAZON LINK

 This was a really good story with some challenges that I wasn't expecting.  It has two good main characters who have had a very loving history that I enjoyed. And then...a huge bump in their road.  The story gets more emotional from this point on without getting weepy or sappy.
I also liked that we got to see both of their P.O.V.'s.  
I will mention that The focus is on both of them being the Riley's threw me off a bit at first as I was reading. – But after a little bit I got into the flow of Boy Riley (Phoenix) and Girl Riley (Wildfire). 
 The strong bond of friendships and sense of community in the Linear Tactical team continues in this story as well.
The author has a few surprising twists towards the end of the book that were REALLY good.  I never saw them coming but they were intense with plenty of dangerous action.  
But there is also a really sweet surprise that adds to their H.E.A.
