About the Book:
Crossfire is a novella between book #3 and book #4 in Warren’s Montana Rescue series. Readers are given the background story of Kade Logan, foreman of billionaire Ian Shaw’s ranch. After his mother has an accident, Kade rushes home presumably to care for her only to find that she is more than capable of taking care of herself. His return home, however, reunites him with his former best friend, Nash, and the woman he’s never quite gotten over- Haddie. When Nash and Kade’s raucous past catches up with them placing them and their families in the crosshairs of a local crime ring, the two friends mend fences and try to right past wrongs. Meanwhile, Kade and Haddie rediscover their feelings for one another and seek to move beyond past mistakes to possibly build a future together.
As per Warren’s usual style, Crossfire is packed with explosive action and tense interactions between characters making this novella pack a mean punch. Overall, I enjoyed delving into Kade’s story and seeing broken relationships mended. The revelation of Nash’s past lack of character and his transformation after becoming a Christian deserves special kudos. Also enjoyed seeing cameos of two of Warren’s beloved characters from other installments of the series. My only complaint was an occasional annoyance with both Kade and Haddie as their romance unfolded. At times both seemed incredibly insecure and just a tad bit whiny usually caused by both of their tendencies to jump to assumptions instead of clearly communicating with each other. I will be interested to see how some of the decisions made in this book translate to changes in future books in the series.
