Rising (Anderson Special Ops #2)

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Brackish and Erin’s story was good, but I like the first book, Shadows (Anderson Special Ops #1) so much that I jumped right into the second book. 

However, Risingfell short and I’ve lost interest in finishing the series. 

I found it poorly executed and at times felt like there were gaps in the story, such as the trip to Paris was practically a blur and brushed over. Also, I had a real problem when Chad was disturbed with Eyes about realizing he knew Damien. 

I would hope their was a beta readers or someone who could’ve caught these mishaps. I normally enjoy Melody Anne’s writing, but this fell short.

Publisher’s Blurb:

Rising, Book Two in the Anderson Special Ops Series continues where book one left off with the mission to purge evil from Seattle just getting started. Katherine comes home, but not all is well in the Anderson world as she battles an enemy Joseph can’t put his hands around. While Joseph can’t purge the cancer, he can support this team who attacked the woman he loves. And that’s exactly what he does.

Book two features all of the characters we met in book one with Steve Bregon, aka, Brackish coming in front and center as he does his best to avoid Erin Savage, the waitress he met in book one, who just so happens to be the niece of a big player in the drug world his team is trying to destroy. Though he doesn’t want to fall for the waitress, he finds his thoughts consumed with her at all hours in the day . . . and most especially in the night. Will their story end in a modern day Romeo and Juliet, two worlds unable to come together, or will he be able to push his feelings aside and do the job he’s there to complete?

This story continues investigating the drug cartel impacting Seattle, while the team, Sleep, Eyes, Brackish, Smoke, and Green continue to grow stronger together. They’ll complete their mission, no matter what it takes, but they might just fall, one man at a time.

New York Times Best Selling Author Melody Anne embarks on a brand new series packed with alpha males and strong women who are in a battle for more than just love. She’s collaborating with brand new author, John Henley, a military veteran who’s served and worked shoulder to shoulder with some of the military’s most elite and finest warriors, in some of the world’s most austere locations. Together they’ve built a storyline that will whet your appetite for danger, passion, romance and suspense. You’ll weep and laugh as you go through this journey with a unique set of characters unlike anything Melody has written before. Not only will you see all of the Andersons you’ve come to love, but you’ll also get a new team of special ops men who won’t allow evil to lurk in the shadows. This team is headed by an Anderson favorite, Chad Redington, who’s married to Bree Anderson.
