    "Maybe that's what love was, showing up to stand in the gap, the crossfire, even when that love wasn't returned." Kade Logan, Haddie Brown and Nash McRae were inseparable for years, until Kade unleashed Nash's unfaithfulness on the eve of Haddie's wedding. It has been a long time, but the three are ironically back where it all begin; Dawson, Montana. Haddie Brown is back in Dawson to do one thing; sell her grandfather's beautiful home and then travel to Minneapolis to accept a nursing position i "Maybe that's what love was, showing up to stand in the gap, the crossfire, even when that love wasn't returned." Kade Logan, Haddie Brown and Nash McRae were inseparable for years, until Kade unleashed Nash's unfaithfulness on the eve of Haddie's wedding. It has been a long time, but the three are ironically back where it all begin; Dawson, Montana. Haddie Brown is back in Dawson to do one thing; sell her grandfather's beautiful home and then travel to Minneapolis to accept a nursing position in a state of the art medical facility. When Kade Logan shows up at the small Dawson hospital asking for her help, she is not only shocked that he is in town, but that it is actually Nash McRae who needs immediate medical attention. An article in a local newspaper, highlighting Nash's recent heroics, has allowed an incident from the past to put the two men back in an unwanted spotlight, and unfortunately they have manged to pull Haddie into the crossfire with them.Packed with high energy and romance, "Crossfire" still manages to deliver a generous amount of deep spiritual insight, softening the rough edges of regret with tenderness and grace, for "sometimes you just have to follow your heart and trust God to rescue you."

    Wow! Even though this is a novella, it is packed with a powerful backstory, a believable love story, and a good dose of danger!

They had a complicated past of unrequited love and lost chances.

    Somehow, Susan May Warren manages to pack a ton of story into just a few pages. Drama, action, and romance all play out in this short novella. Longer review to come.

Somewhere between a three and a four for me because as much as I love it, it is missing a little of the depth I usually find. I felt a little more distanced from the characters.With that being said. PETE BROOKS IS IN THIS ONE. As he has been in all of the ones I've read this year. And I'm basically obsessed with him, completely In love, and madly awaiting his chapter (hopefully almost definitely with Jess, as she's who he pined for here). I'm curious as to what happens in book 4, as it still hasn't been released but this is book 4.5...

    This is is a great novella. I read it as part of the Targeted for Murder set that I purchased from Amazon. This is the first story in the set and it was a great beginning. I loved the suspense and not able to put the Kindle down. I fell in love with the characters who seemed so real. The Inspirational thread was also wonderful. I am wanting to read more from this author.

    About the Book:Crossfire is a novella between book #3 and book #4 in Warren’s Montana Rescue series. Readers are given the background story of Kade Logan, foreman of billionaire Ian Shaw’s ranch. After his mother has an accident, Kade rushes home presumably to care for her only to find that she is more than capable of taking care of herself.

Readers are given the background story of Kade Logan, foreman of billionaire Ian Shaw’s ranch. After his mother has an accident, Kade rushes home presumably to care for her only to find that she is more than capable of taking care of herself. His return home, however, reunites him with his former best friend, Nash, and the woman he’s never quite gotten over- Haddie. When Nash and Kade’s raucous past catches up with them placing them and their families in the crosshairs of a local crime ring, the two friends mend fences and try to right past wrongs. Meanwhile, Kade and Haddie rediscover their feelings for one another and seek to move beyond past mistakes to possibly build a future together.My Thoughts:As per Warren’s usual style, Crossfire is packed with explosive action and tense interactions between characters making this novella pack a mean punch. Overall, I enjoyed delving into Kade’s story and seeing broken relationships mended. The revelation of Nash’s past lack of character and his transformation after becoming a Christian deserves special kudos. Also enjoyed seeing cameos of two of Warren’s beloved characters from other installments of the series. My only complaint was an occasional annoyance with both Kade and Haddie as their romance unfolded. At times both seemed incredibly insecure and just a tad bit whiny usually caused by both of their tendencies to jump to assumptions instead of clearly communicating with each other. I will be interested to see how some of the decisions made in this book translate to changes in future books in the series.This review contains my own thoughts and opinions. I have not been compensated by the publisher or author in any way.

    Another Great BookWow, Susan May Warren has done it again! This is another fantastic book in the Montana Rescue series. I loved getting to know Kade and Haddie. In this story we hear of the struggles these two were dealing with for most of their lives. Struggles many of us deal with like, self worth and the need to know God's grace is sufficient. Susan May Warren is a wonderful gifted author. She has a deeply touching way of bringing us into these stories and making them come to life.

I actually read this book in one day and now I can't wait to read the next book. I highly recommended you pick this book up and sit down to read it, but be warned...... You might not want or be able to put it down once you start!

    I didn't realize until after I was nearly half-way through this novella that I was, in fact, reading it out of series order. I had recently ordered book #4, but while awaiting its arrival by mail I saw this one and began it immediately (the benefit of e-books - no waiting on the post). Despite my jumping ahead, it was easy to get drawn into this story and to connect with the characters. Another great addition to this series.

    Susan May Warren is one of my favorite authors, so I was really excited for Crossfire. It was great! There was lots of intrigue, suspense, and danger. There were also appearances from some favorites from the Montana Rescue Series. (Loved that!) It did take me a chapter or two to get into, but it wasn't long before I couldn't read it fast enough. All in all, another great one from Susan May Warren. (I read this novella as part of the Targeted for Danger Collection)

    I absolutely LOVED this book --- right up to the end! I would have given the book a 5 star rating had there been a happily-ever-after ending or an epilogue. But it just --- ended! Perhaps it will be continued in the next book. Next noveal. How long do we have to wait? That's my major complaint about this series. I feel as if I'm being held hostage, forced to buy the next book to get to the happily-ever-after of the last book.

    So good! I've liked Kade ever since his first appearance, but Haddie is such a great partner for him. I can't get enough of childhood love reborn, and boy howdy this was perfect. I must admit though, as much as I loved their story, Pete's brief appearance really roped me in. Full of intrigue and excitement, Crossfire is sure to capture your attention and a little piece of your heart, too.

    Another great story by this amazing author. Love torn apart, bullets flying, tunnels collapsing, backs being watched. Just another Susan May Warren adventure. :) A quick read that answers the question what is a certain former PEAK member up to, a glimpse of what Ian Shaw is doing also. Montana Rescue!!! If you like good stories, you will enjoy this one!

    This story is in the set Targeted for Danger n I ummed n arred whether to write a review after I read all the stories. But I'm only managing a novella story in between full stories. I enjoy reading Susan's books am a fan. Like catching up with previous characters in her stories like Ian n Pete showing up in this one. Look forward to the next book.

    Not my favorite Montana Rescue story, (and that may be because I don't like love triangles), but this one sets the stage for other Montana Rescue characters to have their story. Plenty of non-stop action, forgiveness, and a happily ever after. I read this novella in the Targeted for Danger romantic suspense book set.

    I really enjoyed this story of Kade and his lifelong, strong history with his friend Nash and the girl they both always loved, Hattie. We know Kade from the Montana Rescue Series and his boss, Ian Shaw. As in all Susan May Warren stories, there is danger and heroism, as well as plenty of strong relationships, intense struggles and, ultimately, redeeming love.
