From the author of the Alpha Ops series comes an action-packed, super sexy military romance.

A legend among black ops teams, Col. Duke Cameron can't wait to get back in action again—no matter how high the risk. Two of the world's best military pilots are missing after a midair collision, and he's made it his job to find out why.

U.S. Air Force veteran Casey Jacobs loves working for a cutting-edge, high-tech company - until she suspects their newest design might have caused a horrible plane crash. But after a few "accidents," it's clear no one wants her asking too many questions. The only person she trusts to help her is Duke, the sexy secret crush from her flying days who still turns her on like no one ever has.

But someone is watching their every move, making sure they don't uncover the truth. And when the danger turns physical, it's not just their love that's on the line. It's their lives.

"Dangerous secrets and undeniable chemistry are the hallmarks of Curtis's steamy third Elite Ops contemporary military romantic thriller." -Publishers Weekly

"Very thrilling, with lots of action and lots of sex. Recommend for those who read Julie Walker." -Library Journal

A high octane roller coaster ride loaded with intrigue, conspiracy, danger and delicious sexual attraction that’s compelling, mesmerizing and so good you never want it to end. The good news is there are more books in the series when you need your next adrenaline fix! I read a complimentary copy of this book provided by Grand Central Publishing through NetGalley and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

Three and a half stars. Four stars for the plot but I've deducted half a point for obtrusive sex and half a point for an abrupt ending. Casey Jacobs is a former Air Force pilot working in the private sector for a cutting edge tech firm, she was ecstatic when her firm, TechGen One (or TGO for short) agrees to sponsor this year's Red Flag training games in the desert, she thought she had won something great for her former colleagues in the military. But two pilots have gone missing and Casey suspects that the issues which caused them to crash were the same as bugs which had been reported in a new piece of TGO software - she is suspicious that somehow TGO has put its software onto military planes without permission but when she raises it with a colleague he warns her that previous TGO whistleblowers have conveniently 'committed suicide' and she shouldn't tell anyone about her suspicions. Torn between fear of what she may have unwittingly facilitated, fear for her own life and fear for the two lost pilots, she is persuaded to help some friends break the lockdown on Nellis Air Force Base to search for the missing pilots. Casey was due to go on a 'date' with Colonel Duke Cameron, head of Nellis Air Force Base. They have a history in Germany and Afghanistan, a mutual admiration from afar type of thing but now she is a civilian contractor on his base there are no rules against fraternisation. The only problem is his heart/ libido is in conflict with his head/ gut which think Casey may be hiding something about the missing pilots. When Duke sees Casey busting out of the base when it is on lockdown he gives chase on his motorbike only to see her attacked by guys in face masks in a car park. Before he knows it the two of them are on the run, not quite trusting each other and plastered all over the news as suspects in the disappearance of two Air Force pilots. This book is full of action right from the word go, the reader is thrust into the middle of the situation and in short succession there are thinly veiled death threats, a breakout from an Air Force base in lockdown, a fight and a getaway. Casey is afraid both for her life and the consequences of disclosing her suspicions thanks to a watertight NDA, she is also wary of getting Duke embroiled in whatever is going on. Duke is suspicious of Casey, has she sold out? Was she a honey trap? There's lots of tension and action - it's like a Bruce Willis film. I really enjoyed the plot, far-fetched as it might be, it was fast-paced and exciting and plausible. The sex didn't really gel with the slow burn romance and diverted attention from the build up of tension and then the ending was too sudden. Overall, this felt like a slightly confused mash-up between military/ special ops romance, erotica and a category romance and needed more balancing of the different elements - I think if you can't categorise a book then its genre isn't clear enough. Overall, I would like to read the previous books in the series to see how they fir together and the backstory between Casey and Duke. Despite my issues with this book I would definitely read more books in this series. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

OMG, this was for me amazing read. For me, it couldn't be better, great military characters both likable, with really hot chemistry and both well developed. A great storyline combined with mystery, suspense, and action. And a fragment of humor, dry sarcastic humor that I like so yes I'm giving it a real solid 5 stars because I enjoyed reading every page of the book. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly.

4 Stars Review by Elizabeth Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Free Fall by Emmy Curtis is packed with action, mystery, romance, suspense, etc. If you love those, you'll definitely want to read Free Fall. When you start reading you are thrown directly into the story and need to collect the pieces from the previous books as you go. While I did get confused a bit as I progressed along, I eventually figured it out and caught on, but I suggest reading the first two books before starting this one. I’m not one for spoilers so you will get no details from me. BUT! There is some steamy sexy times in addition to the action. I will certainly be looking into more of Emmy Curtis’ work.

I enjoyed this story, and while the suspense plot line finally felt wrapped up, after 3 books, there was one possible couple left wide open. I hope we'll see them somehow in the future! 3.5 stars. Air Force vet Casey Jacobs retired from the military to work for a private contractor. She's been having a great time in her new gig, and she's been enjoying the increased pay, for sure! But, when her company is sponsoring a military event, and 2 planes crash, along with other problematic events, Casey starts to suspect that her company is behind all the problems. Then, they come after her when she starts asking questions, and she knows she's on the right track. She needs help, and it comes from the most unexpected source, the man she crushed on for years whenever they flew out of the same base. Duke Cameron. Col. Duke Cameron is about 2 years away from military retirement, and he took a promotion that put him in charge of an entire base outside Las Vegas. The Air Force training event is being held on his base, and when everything starts going wrong, he has a lot of questions, and he knows just who to ask for answers: Casey Jacobs, the woman he's always had a thing for and kept track of through the years, who now works for the company sponsoring the event. But, when he rescues her from an attempted kidnapping, he's afraid they're both in over their heads. Cameron and Casey had great chemistry, and the sexy times in this book were steamier, in my opinion, than in the other 2 books. But, I felt the suspense was a little less exciting than the previous 2 stories. The suspense plot line has carried over all 3 books, as all three basically took place simultaneously. This was an interesting choice, but I don't feel it really worked for me. I really enjoyed the first book a lot, but the cutoff of the suspense plot without having the bad guys get their comeuppance, ultimately made me not enjoy it as much. With the second book, I was expecting that, so it wasn't as bad. But then in this one, I expected to feel totally fulfilled, but I just really didn't. I liked all of the couples in the stories, and the couples' arcs were completed, though the suspense plot went on, which was the only saving grace for me. I despise an emotional cliffhanger, and I appreciate that I was never stuck with one. There were several side characters here that I feel would make great main characters, especially Animal, and Capt. Moss! I would love to see them get together, but I'm not sure if this series is continuing? Or if there will be a spin-off of sorts? I feel the author purposely set them up for you to want more, but I have no idea if that more is coming. Overall, while I enjoyed many aspects of this story, and the series as a whole, it just wasn't a direct hit for me. I'm not sure why, but I just didn't seem to fall into the story the way I wanted, after book 1. Most of book 1, I was fully on board, but when we never really saw the bad guys get found out, etc, it kind of ruined the end for me. Especially since at the time, I had no idea if there would be more books coming. The idea of the suspense story itself was a great one, and I liked where the author was going, I guess I just never really caught up with her. I did like it enough to want to find out what happened, and I read 3 books to get there, so take that as you will.

This is book 3 in the Elite Ops series and can be absolutely read alone. I read it by itself and understood everything that happens, although I have since gone back and read the books before this one as I didn't realize it was part of a series. This book is about Colonel Duke Cameron and USAF vet Casey Jacobs. Casey Jacobs works for a company that helped keep the Red Flag event going when something went horrifically wrong and 2 planes crashed and the pilots were missing. Duke is in charge of the base that those 2 planes came out of and is wondering if Casey knew there was an issue with her company and those planes. Whether she willfully put them in danger even though that doesn't seem like the woman he knew. When he follows her and witnesses something extremely suspicious, now they are on the run and fighting for not only the truth but their lives. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it. There was a lot of action and suspense involved. My only thing is that I wish there had been more of the romance factor to it. But on a whole I liked it. Casey and Duke definitely had chemistry and once they worked through their issues and realize they are on the same side they are great for each other. I know some people got confused when reading this as they didn't have the back story but I was able to follow it just fine so I think it is just a matter of perspective. On a whole I did enjoy the story, just wish there was more romance to it.

I picked this one up not realizing it was the third in the series. Perhaps if I had read the prior books in the series I wouldn't have felt as lost as I did. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I knew they whys of some of the things going on in this story. So I'll just say that I enjoyed the action and fast pace of the story. Casey and Duke are both strong likeable characters. I liked them together and wanted to see them succeed. Overall I think this is a very well done book and I would recommend it with the caveat that it doesn't make a good standalone
