    One thought on “Crossfire”

    1. Niki Savage’s novel Crossfire starts off quite literally in a hail of bullets and the action grabs the reader’s attention from the very beginning. Savage’s writing is assured, and the pace doesn’t really let up, as she takes us on an exciting journey with her two main characters, Marcelle and Stefan.In Marcelle, Savage has created an awe-inspiring but believable character. Having lived independently from a young age, she is resourceful, tough and well able to take care of herself. A tale [...]

    2. Marcelle Deschamps is a French champion cyclist but a broken spirit. She mourns the death of her racing car husband and uses exercise to keep the coldness in her heart at bay. Stefan Ziegler is a German mercenary dedicated to the eradication of terrorism. He too is a damaged spirit, his life destroyed by the terrorist bomb which killed his family. They meet when Stephan is badly injured in a gunfight and seeks refuge in the place where Marcelle collects her mail.Marcelle rescues Stefan and with [...]

    3. Stephan is hot in this action romance. Marcelle deserves a second chance at love when finding Stephan. A new life for Marcelle means self forgiveness for Stephan. I love how Marcelle finds Stephan and aides in saving his life.

    4. OK, I'll admit that the flames on the cover of Crossfire got me interested. I was surprised to discover it was a love story with a twist. What I enjoyed most was that the author allowed the relationship between the two main characters to develop. She didn't just state that they were in love. She showed us. Marcelle's angst about betraying her dead husband was real and palpable. The story was engaging and left me eager to turn the pages to discover what happened next. The ending was a shocker, bu [...]

    5. All I can say is WTH? Are you kidding me???? That is 4 hours of my life I will never get back! NOT a romantic suspense as I thought. spoiler: (view spoiler)[Mercenary Stefan has been shot and is dying is a post office. Cycling champ Marcelle stumbles over him, kills the terrorist after him, saves Stefan's life and has a doctor patch him up. As he recoups at her home, he falls "in luv" with her quickly. Mr. big bad merc makes her tea, holds her in her sleep night after night and calms the nightma [...]

    6. 3.75 out of 5. A very different kind of love story that brings together two very different people--different in their lifestyle, life goals, overall view of reality and backgrounds that have shaped them in some fairly significant ways. One is a world champion sports figure, the other a "world-champion" killer for hire--an anti-terrorist who has become the poster boy for taking out the bad guys, lock, stock, and barrel. Yet when his life is on the line, it is her sense of deep concern for a dying [...]

    7. This book intrigued me. At first it didn't quite catch me the way I like a book too, but about 4 chapters in I couldn't put it down. I had to know what role had been played and by whom in Jean-Michel's death and I wanted to find out more about the characters and what they hid. Great work by Niki Savage for helping the characters jump off the pages and grasp me by both hands so hard that this book just didn't let go

    8. I found this book quite by accident and really enjoyed it! The story line was great and I really wanted to find out what was next for teh characters- good thing it is a trilogy!

    9. Fantastic. The cheese cover may put you off, but give this book a chance as it hides a little gem. For me, it has been as thoroughly enjoyable as it was the first time I read it. The first title in this accomplished trilogy was a fast re-read in preparation for the two new books in the spin-off Driftwood series. This is a superb example in the romantic intrigue/thriller genre. An anti-terrorist mercenary in trouble and a female world champion cyclist meet by chance in a dangerous situation. As t [...]

    10. Didn't like. The book justifies rape and the main character is debating living in an abusive relationship when book ends. Not reading rest of series.

    11. The first book in a three part series, Crossfire has an action packed opening sequence that is riveting.We are immediately introduced to Marcelle Deschamp and Stefan Ziegler. Marcelle stumbles upon Stefan, who has been shot and lies in a pool of blood. Immediately confronted with the assailant, Marcelle defends herself and Stefan. While nursing Stefan back to health, she see's the scars that crisscross his body, leaving her fearful and curious. Through a pain induced haze, Stefan observes Marcel [...]

    12. This book is definitely in the 18+ category. It is hot and steamy at moments and deeply emotionally moving in others. The past lives of the two main characters are fully developed throughout the novel and the ending will have you screaming NO because it leaves you wanting to know what happens!! Enough so that I immediately went and bought the second in this series!Marcelle Deschamps lost her beloved race car driver husband in a brutal accident. She can not get over it. She herself is a world cla [...]

    13. Not for me, but ok.This story was a bit slow for me if I'm honest, it took a while to get going. I didn't really connect with Marcelle the female lead. Some parts held my attention, then other parts let it down. Marcelle saves the life of a man, a stranger.Stefan is a mercenary, he has secrets. Will Marcelle regret her decision to help him when she finds out what they are?Once I got into it a bit more I found myself liking Stefan but i still found Marcelle annoying. Yes she has had sadness in he [...]

    14. I really liked this book up until something happens between the two main characters that changed my mind about the whole book. I will not be reading the rest in this series. I generally love Ms. Savage's books, this one however completely dissapointed me in that one instance. She had me up until that one event. I will definitely continue to read her books.

    15. Came across the book by chance and it turned out to be light reading, entertaining and distracting. Kept me going, made me curious to know what would happen next. Think I'll read the next one as well

    16. Easy readingEnjoyed the story line. Has great characters. Liked the way the characters interact too. Looking forward to the next book in the series

    17. Ok not great.I would like to have read more action and interaction with the characters. I felt the ending was a disappointment.

    18. Nice easy read. I did think the ending was rather abrupt, like the story was written in full, then arbitrarily chopped in half to make two (or more?) books.

    19. S-T-U-P-I-D. A world-renowned cyclist happens to come across a strange man who's been shot, and she decides to put her career on hold and nurse him back to health? This is drivel.

    20. Great bookI wasn't sure I was going to like this book. Boy was I wrong. It has a little bit of everything in it. Perfect for every reader.

    21. AwesomeReally enjoyed this series. I look forward to the next book. Making me type 19 words is stupid stupid stuff

    22. Great readLoved reading this and ready for the next one I will be looking forward to get started on it soon
