Review - Invincible by Alana Albertson



by Alana Albertson


I’ll be honest with you—I’m no hero. Sure, the media tries to brand every Navy SEAL as some kind of Batman dressed in cammies. There’s even a line in one of our cadences: Superman is the man of steel, he ain’t no match for Navy SEAL. You’ve seen the movies—we’re infallible, invaluable, invincible. But that night, the one you read about in the papers … all I really wanted to do was get laid. One harmless fuck with an Aruban whore, no strings attached. I picked her out of a lineup—wild, dark hair, long legs and a crooked smile. After she sucked me off, I relaxed back onto the creaky, cum-stained cot, thankful for the blissful moments she gave me when I actually forgot for a second the faces of my buddies who died because I made the wrong call, the tears of the children I couldn’t save, and the eyes of the enemies I slaughtered during their last seconds of life. But before I left, her hazel eyes peered into my soul. She whispered in a distinct Californian accent, “My name is Annie Hamilton. I’m an American citizen. I was kidnapped on spring break five years ago. You’re my last hope. Please save me.” One desperate plea. This wasn’t a Hollywood blockbuster or a New York Times best-selling thriller. I knew this time there was no room for excuses, no margin for errors. I had one chance to put on the cape and be her hero.

My Review:

OMG!  I loved this book!  From page one, I was sucked into this story and did not want to put it down.  Patrick is a Navy Seal who was just looking for a quickie and he was shocked when the girl he chooses tells him she was kidnapped and wants him to save her.  Patrick wanted to believe that she was lying but finds out the truth and decides to do the right thing and attempt to rescue her.  This story was so engrossing and emotional, I was blown away by it.  Annie has survived so much and still has some hope that she will be rescued, she takes a huge chance on Patrick being the one to help her.  The chemistry between them was intense and the development of their relationship was so moving.  I highly recommend this well written and beautiful story, keep tissues on hand as this tale will take you on an emotional journey!  ~Booklover Sue
