Seduced by the Storm by Sydney Croft

Seduced by the Storm (ACRO, Book 3)Title: Seduced by the Storm  
Author: Sydney Croft  
Series: ACRO (book #3)  
Previous in series: Unleashing the Storm  
Next in series: Taming the Fire

My rating: 4 Stars

Synopsis: Covert operatives, Wyatt Kennedy and Faith Black meet in a bar and share one night of unbridled passion only to discover later that they are on opposing sides of the same mission to locate ITOR’s deadly weather machine. Faith and Wyatt must ultimately work together to thwart ITOR’s nefarious plans but can they also find love and trust on a personal level?

Review: The best installment in the series so far. Once again, the Sydney Croft duo has written an engaging story with interesting backgrounds for their characters (which is lacking in the second book). The plot is fast-paced, action packed and more engaging than the first two books. Wyatt and Faith’s romance is intense, passionate and believable despite the underlying supernatural circumstances. The agents with opposing agendas and love/betrayal aspects of their relationship were particularly enjoyable.

The conclusion to Annika and Creed’s story was wonderful and it was great to see them finally coming to terms with themselves and their relationship. There were some interesting plot twists with regard to Dev, Oz and Creed that contributed to their character development. I also liked the subtle hints in the last chapter to stories yet to come.

Even though it is not 100% necessary, I do recommend reading the first two books in the series to get a complete grasp of the espionage plot in this one.

  1. Oh wow I have this book on my bookshelf randomly. I didn't know it was a series. Maybe that was the problem. Great review.
