Genre: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense
Released: January 2, 2018
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Series: Mission Recovery, Book 1
A former Navy SEAL, Cole Makani Hunter has returned home from a disastrous black ops mission without his best friend, his hearing, or the use of his right arm. So when his ex–commanding officer assigns him to an undercover mission at a rehab center for vets to discover who leaked sensitive military information to an enemy, he’d rather be anywhere but there. Almost immediately, Cole finds himself at odds with Annie Murray—a peace-loving ecotherapist whose dream is to open an animal sanctuary out of her home. While the two seemingly have nothing in common, their spirited arguments soon fuel a passion for each other.
But just as things begin to heat up between therapist and patient, dangerous complications arise. So does the past—and a shocking revelation that puts Cole and everything he now holds dear in the path of a murderous traitor.

A good start to a new series.
This review is a first for me… It’s the first time that I’ve reviewed a book that I switched back and forth between listening to the audio version and reading the Kindle version. Whispersync really is pretty cool.
I loved this book – while I was reading it – so 5 stars for Dana Marton’s writing; it’s what I’ve come to expect of her books. Descriptive prose, a strong male lead and a strong female lead, although not someone who is physically strong.
I’m sorry to say that I didn’t enjoy listening to this story very much. When I switched to audio my attention drifted from the book and I had to go back and read the part I’d just listened to. I can’t really put my finger on it but I think I would have enjoyed this story more if the narrator had been male instead of female. I think the voice was almost too soothing. When reading the story, in my mind the story felt more suspenseful and I kind of fell in love with Cole. Hearing his words in a deep female voice just didn’t really work for me that well. So, I have to give the narrator 3 stars.
I think the story starts out in kind of an unusual way – describing what happened to someone an hour before he died. I was a tiny bit confused at first but loved the way it ended up making sense later in the story. I also think that Dana did a great job of hiding the identity of the villain until she wanted us to know who it was.
The story had my heart pounding in places, breaking in others and ultimately brought it all together. Silent Threat was a thoroughly satisfying and enjoyable story to read. I’m happy to know that there will be another book in this series.
