REUNITING Dan Reynolds spent every spare minute he could searching for his three missing daughters, taken from him by his malicious ex-wife years ago. When not searching for his girls, he excelled at his role as second-in-command of the CCU. He loved his team, loved them like family. And when it became necessary to risk his own life to protect one of those teammate he gladly does it, nearly dying in the process. His first day back on the job he's nearly knocked to the ground by a pretty little whirlwind. The younger woman makes him feel again and brings out all his protective instincts. Shame she'd never be interested in a man like Dan, one who had nothing to give. He gave it all to his search. Allison Brewster liked the look of the man who helped her to her feet. Yes, he was at least fifteen years older than she was, but he had a kind face. Strong hands. A spark of real intelligence in his eyes. She found him so intriguing... But Dan had a complicated situation, just as complicated as the recent divorcee's. Should they really get involved with one another? RECKONING Someone had hacked the PAVAD's secure maintenance system, trapping his daughter and a pregnant woman in the elevators, and that infuriated Edward Dennis, creator of the PAVAD division. Ed's fury faded away when he learned the culprit was 11 yr. old Teddy Glendower, son of the new forensics supervisor, Dr. marianna Glendower. Ed recognized the act for what it was--a boy stuck in the middle of six other brothers and needing attention. Since his daughter's recent marriage, Ed had the time to mentor the young boy. Provided his mother was agreeable... Ed Dennis terrified Marianna, with his cold brown eyes and commanding presence. And now Teddy's fate was in the man's hands, something Marianna, the survivor of domestic abuse, couldn't help but panic over. If Teddy didn't cooperate would Marianna lose her position? The position she'd worked hard for? Men who held that kind of power over people couldn't be trusted... Ed was determined to show the beautiful mother of seven boys that he could be trusted. Determined to show her he would never hurt her... But someone was trying to do just that. Hurt Marianna and her team, and her safety now rested in Ed's hands. And he could make one vow, and he'd die to keep it if necessary. No one would hurt Marianna or her children ever again... @84,443 words

    Second Chances: PAVAD Duet (PAVAD: FBI - Prevention & Analysis of Violent Acts Division #3 and 4) by Calle J. Brookes This is the third and forth book in the PAVAD Series, I am really enjoying these stories, I love that there was two books in one. REUNITING is Dan's and his family story. The 4th book is RECKONING and Ed the Director of the FBI Pavad Division get his own story. I have rated Wanting 4 stars, and I will continue to read the rest of this series.

    Dual novellas... "Reuniting" (Dan and Ally's story) and "Reckoning" (Ed and Marianna's story) are two enjoyable and engaging novellas which make up the "Second Chances" duet. With interesting storylines, strong character development, and two ensnaring novellas, "Second Chances" (books 3 and 4 in the series) is a read straight through novel.

    Wonderfully written stories. Ms Brookes is a brand new author for me, but I can say with all certainty that she will be on my list of must buys in the future. Even the fact that she stops at the bedroom door did not take away any of my enjoyment of the story. In fact it made them more intense and, believe it or not, sexy. The suspense was believable, the background story like watching an episode of CSI, without any of the confusing jargon, and the romance wonderfully deep and rich.

And my absolutely favorite thing was the fact that life and love does go on after 40! Desire, love and passion transcend age, and that makes Callie J. Brookes one of a kind writer and an instant top 10 author on my list. Ms. Brookes, those of us over 40's thank you for finally bringing us stories that we can identify with and enjoy more for that.

While I like Dan Reynolds, his whole story of looking for his kids for 15yrs was kind of lame. HE'S AN FBI AGENT!!! He couldn't find his kids who weren't all that far from him. Like Kelly said, "They weren't hiding". Some FBI Agent he is. Plus the whole story of the instalove with Ally? Uuuggghhh!!! Anyway, a lowly 2.5stars for that story.

At least the Director was a smarter agent than Dan and he figured out pretty early in the story, which would earn it a 3.5stars. Making the duet an average of 3stars.

    OMG is all I can say! I think I am going to have to read this book again and again and again. Dan's ex-wife took his daughters and ran......years ago. He has not stopped searching for them. A turn of events changes his ENTIRE life in like 12 hours. Ed Dennis has just come to expect life as it is. He is head of the PAVAD unit, a father and a grandfather. What more could a person want? How about a sassy mother of boys and lots of boys. Again, this is like the first couple of books....editing was a OMG is all I can say!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Meh. Dan deserved better than a short story to resolve his drama, and that he ends up with essentially his daughter's best friend is sort of weird. Ed's story isn't much better. Brookes just doesn't seem to do short stories very well; things feel rushed, unrealistic even for the genre, and there is just way too much drama.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SUSPENSE DRAMA As a reader, I have become totally hooked on this series. This author has the ability to create strong, colorful and dynamic characters who help to bring her words to life as she writes her stories. So far, every book I have read is exciting, intense, full of action and thrills.

    High on suspense low on romance Both stories were equally enjoyable although low on the romance. Nevertheless it made for an interesting story when it was finally revealed as to who the perpetrator was and why he did what he did. Required some editing but a easy read.

    Good stories 2 for 1. Love that these characters were in their 40s and 50s. Wish the editing was better and the endings are just too abrupt — not satisfying at all.

    FBI Thriller Sallie J. Brookes has written another PAVAD:FBI hit. Excitement from start to Finish! I have never read a book of hers, I didn't love.

    Calle J. Brookes After reading the first book in this series, I can hardly wait to start book 5. I will definitely be reading as many of her works as I can get. Ms. Brookes is definitely one of my top 5 favorite authors.

    The first story was about Dan and Ally. Dan lost his 3 young daughters when his wife took them and disappeared while he lay injured in the hospital 15 years ago. He never stopped searching. A new group of people has just transferred from the Indianapolis office and Ally Brewster is one of the women that is new to St. Louis. She is a tiny whirlwind who knocks Dan off his feet, literally.

The two develop a friendship but it's complicated by her two children and well Dan's three daughters. His eldest daughter was one of the group that transferred. Trouble follows his daughter and Dr. Ally and Dan vows to protect them both. The next story was about Ed and Marianna. Ed is the director of the PAVAD and Marianna is a team leader in the forensics department. Marianna is targeted as well and this story somewhat parallels Dan and Ally's story but it also goes further to expose the treat to the Indianapolis team. Great characters and fast paced action. Will continue to read her books even though there were some grammatical errors.
