Product Description

Flirting with danger is reporter Grace Grainger's modus operandi. But she's learned the hard way not to grow attached to the soldiers she's embedded with in Afghanistan. To escape from her pain and loneliness, she fantasizes about the hot night she spent with a gorgeous stranger three years before in D.C. Grace never thought she'd see him again-let alone need him to rescue her . . .
Air Force Master Sergeant Josh Travers knows journalists are nothing but trouble. So when he has to risk the lives of his team to save some reporter who's been separated from her patrol, he's not happy-until he recognizes her stunning eyes and delicious curves. Josh has never wanted a woman like he wants Grace. Even in an Afghan cave with a sandstorm and enemy troops closing in, he can't deny the desire. This might be the end for both of them-or one hell of a beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Territory: Grace and Josh, can they overcome their differences to be together? 1 November 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Dangerous Territory by Emmy Curtis is a great beginning to a new series and author. This is the first time I've read her and will most likely get the rest of the books in the series.

Grace Grainger is staying at the Four Season's hotel near Dulles Airport when she meets Josh and they have a one night stand, they go their separate ways. But Grace is embedded with an Army unit that comes under attack while out on patrol. She's able to get away and hide in the nearby mountain in a cave with hopes that help will soon be coming. But when Air Force Master Sargent Josh Travers is able to find her but the Taliban are close and they need to get to a safe place to call in for a rescue. When he finds out she's a reporter, he immediately assumes that she's one of the tabloid type and you know what they say about never assume, right? They are able to get to a nearby village but there is a price to use their phones, will Josh be able to help the leader's son?

Josh Travers is annoyed to be sent out to rescue a reporter but what he doesn't know is that she's a Pulitzer Price winning reporter and when she's embedded with the units, she tells their story in a way that not one expects. But can they hold off the Taliban so they can be rescued and will Grace move onto a new assignment? She never home enough to have a stable place to live. Can they overcome their differences and realize that what they feel is a forever love?

Emmy Curtis - Alpha Ops Series - DANGEROUS TERRITORY - #1 -Novella

I love all of Ms. Curtis's Military Romance books and have heard there will be more to come!! We start out with an encounter between Grace Grainger, reporter and Air Force Master Sergeant Josh Travers in a Hotel Bar in Washington DC. One night of passion was enough to keep both parties thinking about the other for 3 years. They had not exchanged any information, names, phone numbers, address, so they each could only think about that one night.

The next encounter, 3 years later and on the battlefield. Josh must rescue an unknown reporter in the war theater. Josh does not believe that reporters have any business on the battle field and they only get in the way and risks military teams lives. When Josh finds out that the reporter is Grace, he has mixed feelings and is not sure if he can fully trust her. Grace does not want to give her heart to anyone on the battlefield since she had lost a friend in the war 3 years earlier.

You must read this to find out if Grace and Josh can find neutral ground and trust to explore this red hot passion that they both feel.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this little sneak peek into Emmy Curtis's new military world and am definitely excited about the whole series. We can always use more military themed romance novels!

Josh and Grace had a one night stand three years before the real story in the book begins. They did so fairly anonymously, hooking up in a hotel on Christmas Eve. Neither had any idea about the other's ties to the military. So it was a complete shock when they ran into one another out on the battlefield in Afghanistan. Grace is an embedded journalist while Josh is a PJ. They both are married to their jobs and pretty much deploy into hostile environments non-stop...mainly because neither of them has anyone at home waiting for them. For both of them, that single night has haunted their fantasies ever since.

Josh has a hang-up about reporters, seeing them all as tabloid journalists and that was my one issue with the story. He is seriously over-the-top with his slanted views. While not everyone agrees with having reporters embedded, seeing them as tabloid reporters usually isn't the reason for it. If he had experienced something personally like that, I could have bought that story line better. I think that aspect of the story could have been handled with a tiny bit more finesse to make it more believable.

But otherwise the novella was good. There was tons of heat and chemistry between the two that showed every moment they weren't fighting about her job. They've both been in the war-zone a lot so they are both pretty tough when it comes to the nerve-wracking experiences they have during the course of the story. I think it would be fun to see a continuation for them sometime in the future of the series, because I'd definitely like to see them out of the extreme circumstances they were in throughout the book.

And I'm definitely looking forward to more from this series.

Please note this review may contain spoilers.

Grace is Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who has no family or friends, so she has spent the past four years following troops in Afghanistan, reporting on their lives, the risks they face, the ravages of war, whatever calls to her that she thinks would make a great and honest story. On a routine patrol, their convoy is attacked and they require air support to get the troops safely back to base. During the firefight, Grace is separated from the patrol and when they realise they’ve left her behind, another rescue is required to locate and extract her. Enter Josh, her one night stand from three years ago.

When Josh realises the woman he’s been fantasising about for three years is the missing journalist, he’s disappointed and quickly tries to distance himself from her. He believes all journalists are the same, not caring who they put in danger as long as it gets them the headlines and fame they’re after. Regardless of his feelings, he has a job to do and a woman to return safely to base. But their attraction from three years ago quickly resurfaces and despite the dangers around them, and his hatred of her profession, they can’t seem to keep their body parts to themselves.

I liked Grace, but Josh frustrated me a little. Grace is a strong, smart and independent woman and I loved that she was able to surprise Josh with just how useful she could be when the situation called for it. She may not be a soldier, but she’s seen and endured her fair share of devastation throughout the past four years, and that has made her respectful, level headed and calm under pressure. She’s definitely not a bimbo or a cry baby. Poor Josh was a very conflicted man, wanting Grace badly but unable to get his head around her job. As soon as he had her, he went back to treating her so coldly and with no respect that I wished Grace would have punched him, because he deserved nothing less. But he redeemed himself at the end and that’s all that really matters.

Dangerous Territory was a fairly quick read and a well written debut novel from Emmy Curtis. This is a novella, so everything happens pretty quickly, from the sex, to the action, to the ending. But I enjoyed it and would read more books from this series and the author.

4.5 Stars! See the full review at Scandalicious Book Reviews...

I picked up Dangerous Territory by Emmy Curtis a few weeks ago and I have not been able to let it go. That tells me, I need to tell you about it. Let's be honest, I liked the premise of the story but that cover is what initially drew me so let's all give thanks for ab-tastic covers with fantastic stories to back them up! Emmy Curtis wrote an amazing story and she packed it all into 100 pages, give or take. Quite honestly, my biggest complaint was that I didn't want this story to end but Grace and Josh's story is an excellent starting point for the Alpha Ops series and brilliantly segues into the next story Over the Line which is due to release in five weeks.

Emmy Curtis describes her series as follows...

"My debut series is about the military heroes who spend most of their professional lives in harm’s way, but rarely get books written about them. They’re not SEALs, and they’re seldom in the headlines, but these men and women are tough, courageous and fearless. They deserve to be written about. And they deserve to find love."

I love that Emmy Curtis brings something slightly different to this military themed genre by exposing the unsung heroes behind the scenes. Remember, when it all goes to hell, it's these bad boys they call in. Explaining the duties or roles of some of these special ops personnel was written into the story with such ease, it only enhanced the story and never weighed it down. Since this story takes place in the middle of a war, I felt all this extra attention to detail and fact, whether it was about the military operation or the interaction between Grace, Josh and the locals, made it that much more authentic. I'm not sure if it's a complement to say that Emmy Curtis writes war scenes extraordinarily well but somewhere out there, these men and women DO exist and I would have to say she did these heroes justice in her fictional portrayal of their very real existence. The imagery is extremely vivid and so well written that without closing your eyes, you can envision the chaos of a patrol under attack, the unforgiving Afghan landscape and the local villagers who are trying to avoid becoming casualties themselves.

Not only are Grace and Josh stranded in Dangerous Territory with the enemy closing in, there is plenty of hostility brewing between them. Josh despises reporters. He is frustrated when his team is put at risk to rescue a journalist and further pissed off to learn that the woman that has starred front and center in all his fantasies ever since their one night stand three years ago also happens to be the reporter he just rescued. Grace is no lightweight. She has spent the last four years embedded in Afghanistan and she has little problem flinging the animosity back at Josh. She is smart and resourceful and this only further fuels his confusion. With the memory of that perfect night now ruined for the both of them and the stress of their current life or death situation hanging over them, emotions in an already volatile situation are going to be pushed to their limit and new memories are about to be made, both in and out of those BDU's.

“Well, soldier, is that a night-vision scope in your pocket, or are you just pleased to see me?”
