The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren

The Way of the Brave (Global Search and Rescue #1)Book Description:
Former pararescue jumper Orion Starr is haunted by the memory of a rescue gone wrong. He may be living alone in Alaska now, but the pain of his failure--and his injuries--has followed him there from Afghanistan. He has no desire to join Hamilton Jones's elite rescue team, but he also can't shirk his duty when the call comes in to rescue three lost climbers on Denali.

Former CIA profiler and psychiatrist Jenny Calhoun's yearly extreme challenge with her best friends is her only escape from the guilt that has sunk its claws into her. As a consultant during a top-secret mission to root out the Taliban, she green-lighted an operation that ended in ambush and lives lost. When her cathartic climb on Denali turns deadly, she'll be forced to trust her life and the lives of her friends to the most dangerous of heroes--the man she nearly killed.

Her skills and his experience are exactly what's needed to prevent another tragedy--but in order to truly set Orion free from his painful past, Jenny will have to reveal hers. They'll have to put their wounds behind them to survive, but at what cost?

Leap into action with this high-octane, breakneck new series from bestselling author Susan May Warren.

My Thoughts:
I was so excited to get a copy of this book that I started it and didn't stop.  The author pulls you in from the very start and simply doesn't let go.  Jenny and Orion are both wonderfully flawed characters that were amazing to read about.  This one was full of suspense and I honestly had no desire to put it down.
Jenny and Orion's romance (while I was expecting it) felt a bit off and I'm not certain why.  Still, I loved the twists and turns the story line took and the wonderful new characters I got to meet.  I honestly cannot wait until the next book in the series!
Absolutely a 5/5 for me.

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
