The Captive by Julie Coulter Bellon

I read a very excellent book the other day by a fantastic author, Julie Coulter Bellon.  I really enjoyed her book.  It's titled The Captive, and it's about a Navy SEAL and a young woman named Mya who are trying to rescue some hostages from terrorists.   Here's what I wrote about it in reviews:

  This was a great book! I don't usually read modern thrillers about terrorists and Navy SEALs, but I make an exception for Julie Coulter Bellon's writing, because I know from experience, that it is fantastic! Jake is a great three dimensional character, completely believable, and I really like him. I'm also embarrassed to admit that I am jealous of Mya. But golly, I am. Jake is a great guy, brave, ethical, and really, really good looking. Mya is also a character I admire a lot. She's courageous, and willing to do what she needs to do, to do what's right. They are a great match. The tension in the story was exciting, and nail biting, especially toward the end. Ms. Bellon sure knows how to get readers to keep turning pages! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

As I said, I really enjoyed this book.  I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a high-paced modern day adventure.
