About the Book
My life is all about calculated risks, when to push the throttle and when to ease back so when I meet Kyle Garret one night in a bar near Miramar, I let him win me over with his charming wit and enigmatic smile even though my gut tells me that I’m headed for a crash…
NICUnurse’s Review of Trap by Jennifer Rebecca
I kind of stumbled upon Jennifer Rebecca’s Claire Goodnite series a while back and pretty much fell in love with her writing then and there. I’ve devoured each of her subsequent books. I love romantic suspense books, and I love how she’s able to combine the suspense, the emotional/angsty edge, pretty steamy scenes, yet also throws in some (sometimes dark) humor. And a hefty number of Jennifer Rebecca’s books have had interconnected characters. In Trap, not only did she include Jackson from the Salvation Society, but she also gave us MacKenzie (Mack), who is Ryan Black’s (from her Presidential Affair series) sister.
Don’t be alarmed by the interconnected characters thing and let it stop you from reading this book. Trap is a complete standalone novel. But for those of us that are fans of Jennifer Rebecca’s writing, it’s always fun to see her characters from other series books pop in.
In Trap, we meet Kyle, a SEAL, and Mack, a marine F-35 pilot. He’s enlisted; she’s an officer. Those relationships are highly frowned upon in the military, even if they are serving in separate branches. They are both confident, no-nonsense people. And, of course, they have chemistry in spades. So, what Mack thinks is a fling leading up to her next deployment, Kyle has other plans. He’s at a crossroads in his career. He knows his body can’t take the rigors of his current job much longer, so he’s considering getting out of the Navy. When an old friend offers him an opportunity too good to pass up, it feels serendipitous. With nothing but Mack’s deployment in the way, all they have to do is hang on until she returns home, and their future can begin.
I love that Jennifer Rebecca gives us a kickass female pilot. Kyle is awesome and not just a side piece in this book, and I loved him too. But Mack stole the show, in my opinion. I mean, none of Jennifer Rebecca’s female main characters are ever shrinking violets, but Mack kicks it up a notch. Which makes the tragedy she suffers that much more emotional and angsty. I’m the wife of a pilot. He flew on fighter aircraft for several years in the backseat (think Goose from Top Gun). He is a charter pilot now that he’s retired from active duty. Jennifer Rebecca seriously put me through my worst nightmare when my husband deployed on the F-15 Strike Eagle. But do I hate her for it? Nope! Because despite the fact that Mack’s story was hard to digest at times, there was so much emotion to it that I simply couldn’t put this book down. And when I finally reached the end, it literally had me pondering the what-ifs. What if doing something I loved—absolutely lived for—was utterly destroyed in me? Would I even be able to come back from it? Any book that leaves us pondering long after we’ve finished it is definitely a good book.

Jennifer is a thirty-something lover of words, all words: the written, the spoken, the sung (even poorly), the sweet, the funny, and even the four-letter variety. She is a native of San Diego, California where she grew up reading the Brownings and Rebecca with her mother and Clifford and the Dog who Glowed in the Dark with her dad, much to her mother’s dismay.
Jennifer is a graduate of California State University San Marcos where she studied Criminology and Justice Studies. She is also a member of Alpha Xi Delta.
13 years ago, she was swept off her feet by her very own sailor. Today, they are happily married and the parents of a 10-year-old and 9-year-old twins. She lives in East Texas where she can often be found on the soccer or baseball fields, drawing with her children, reading, or wondering what the hell her senior citizens have gotten up to now. Jennifer is convinced that if she puts her Fitbit on one of the dogs, she might finally make her step goals.
She loves a great romance, an alpha hero, and lots and lots of laughter.
