Silent Night Standoff by Susan Sleeman

 From The Back Cover Of Book:

HOSTAGE SITUATION

When armed robbers strike her bank, hostage negotiator Skyler Brennan’s life is on the line. Rescue comes from the last person she thought she could count on—the ex-boyfriend who chose his job over their relationship. 

FBI agent Logan Hunter knows how much is resting on this case. The promotion of his dreams…and the safety of the woman he’s never been able to forget. But when an unexpected twist in the case pulls Logan in two separate directions, he’ll have to make an impossible choice. Will he manage to have it all by Christmas—a career and love—or will he lose them both?


My Thoughts:

I love suspense and I love romance, wrap them together and I'm in book heaven! I enjoyed both of the main characters. At first Logan wasn't very likeable because of his drive to impress his father with his career advancements, but as the story unfolded and he began to realize how much Skyler meant to him, he became much more likeable to me. Skyler was definitely more grounded in her faith than Logan, but she had issues as well. Having been ignored by her parents as a child and Logan abandoning her once before she definitely had some trust issues. Add to that a bank robbery, and several threats on Skyler's life SILENT NIGHT STANDOFF definitely satisfied my suspense/romance craving. 
This is book 1 in Susan Sleeman's new First Responders series. If you haven't read any of Susan's books before I guarantee they are well worth the read.

I received my copy of Silent Night Standoff from the author for winning a contest she was having. I was not required to read or review this book. All thoughts are my own.
