    4.5 Stars I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is the 5th installment of the "Off The Grid: FBI #5, that centers around a group of friends who bonded during their time in Quantico for their FBI training. Diego is on a break and heads to Columbia after receiving a tip that his mother and brother, who he has not seen since he was 13 years old may be there.

This is the 5th installment of the "Off The Grid: FBI #5, that centers around a group of friends who bonded during their time in Quantico for their FBI training. Diego is on a break and heads to Columbia after receiving a tip that his mother and brother, who he has not seen since he was 13 years old may be there. He is directed to a church to meet a priest who may have some answers for him, but he never gets the chance to talk to him as a gunman takes aim at the priest and injures others in the church. He escapes with a woman who spoke to the priest prior to the gunfire. They each share their reasons for coming to the church and decide to help one another, but they are not out of the woods as they're being followed and Diego is beginning to find clues that makes him question the initial tip. This is just the first couple chapters and the adrenaline spikes from there. Diego and Tara believe they are in danger and don't know why yet, but believe that the people looking for them is looking for something that they may have. They also discover that their individual quests are connected which heightens the threat they are running from. Their search leads them back to the states where Diego's search is realized and is faced with the knowledge that he will need to make some painful decisions. The friends from books 1-4 to tie up the storyline that has threaded each story involving Vincent Rowland. The team work seamlessly to capture their foe who has exacted revenge on each of them as he blames them for his son's death. The final chapters adds to the storyline of each friend and brings a spotlight on Flynn, who not from their group, but a friend and whose story will be told. I enjoyed this series and I highly recommend that all installments are read to get the detail of their bond and the hidden clues that lead to the ending of this installment. Can't wait for #6!!!

    What an epic ending to what has been a roller coaster of a series! The suspense in this book starts right off the bat and just keeps going - but is also a wonderful story with two really thoughtful characters that were relatable and I cared about. I loved watching the relationship grow between Tara and Diego as they helped each other. I may need to go reread the book (or the series) right away!

    I love this series! Diego had such a bad childhood with being taken away from his mother and younger brother by his father when he was 13. His father was cruel to him, and he was hurt his mother never looked for him. I think it was a blessing he and his father didn’t get along so he was sent to military school. He became such a good man and built a family with his five other friends that went through Quantico together. He has never forgotten his mother and brother and has been looking for them.

He became such a good man and built a family with his five other friends that went through Quantico together. He has never forgotten his mother and brother and has been looking for them. It had to be hard for him to get a lead on his mother and brother, but not trust the agent that gave him the lead. Was it destiny that placed Tara in Columbia in the same town at the same place as Diego? I can’t imagine what Tara felt like when they were in a church and guns started going off and saw the priest who was helping her find her friend Bethany shot down and killed. Luckily Diego grabbed her hand and got them out of there. This started an adventure with the high school Spanish teacher and the FBI agent where they get shot at, beat up, stole a plane, as well as other happenings. It had to be very hard for Diego to think his brother is involved with the Salazar mafia family, and then Tara realizing her friend may also be involved. This book is so exciting and has nail biting action. I loved catching up with the characters I met in previous books. I was also happy to find out who has been behind all the problems the FBI group of friends had. I strongly encourage you to read the book. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this book.

One of the FBI agents — this time Diego Rivera — is using some personal time to work on solving the personal mystery that has haunted him since he was a teenager. He quickly meets Tara Powell, a civilian, who is trying to solve her own personal mystery — the disappearance of her childhood friend and foster sister. It quickly becomes clear both Diego and Tara are working on the same case. And because this is a romantic suspense novel, they become lovers. Freethy knows how to tell a suspenseful tale. I read this book over two nights (only because I had to go to work in between). On a weekend, it would have been a one-day binge read. The romance is an added layer that doesn’t overpower the book. And her sex scenes are tastefully nongraphic. Fans of the FBI series will love this book — and the unexpected surprise at the very end!! Everyone else, start with Perilous trust and binge read all five books. You will not be disappointed.

    Tara Powell and Diego Rivera both have someone they need help finding, and one man has information that can help them both. Diego Rivera is an FBI agent who just finished an assignment and is taking a few days to look into a tip he was given.

Diego Rivera is an FBI agent who just finished an assignment and is taking a few days to look into a tip he was given. He was told to talk to a priest in Columbia who might have some information on the location of his missing mother and brother who he’s been searching for for 18 years now. When he arrives at the church however, the priest is already in what looks like a heated discussion with a woman. When he finally gets to talk to the priest, the priest tells him he’ll talk to him after the service. Unfortunately for Diego, he doesn’t get that chance. Gunfire breaks out during the service and the priest is shot. Diego is standing beside the woman who’d been talking to the priest so he grabs her hand and takes off running. Tara is a high school Spanish teacher who is searching for her best friend, Bethany. No one seems to think Bethany is actually missing because she likes to just take off on a whim, but Tara knows something is wrong. She had talked to a priest who said to come back the next day and he’d tell her what he knew, but the next day, he says he can’t help her. She goes inside the church, hoping to try talking to the priest after the service, but doesn’t get that chance. When the gunfire goes off, killing the priest, a man grabs her hand and tells her to run. After getting a safe distance away, she finds out the man who saved her is Diego. She doesn’t know much about him, but after explaining why she’s there, Diego agrees to help her find Bethany. I loved all the twists and turns in this book. The characters are thrown into life threatening situations over and over again but because of their trust in each other, they always make it out alive. Tara and Diego work so well together, and the chemistry between them is intense! Once I started this book, I just couldn’t stop! This was another amazing installment in the Off the Grid series, and I can’t wait to read the next one!

Taking matters into her own hands, she heads to the small village where it seems her friend was last known to be. Both Tara and Diego plan to attend the church service and, hopefully, talk to the priest following the service. But an eruption of gunfire has them both running for cover. Their mad dash takes them to a small cemetery, where once again they are targeted. Neither feels comfortable trusting the other, but it seems that at least one of them is being targeted. They just don’t know which one, and where the threat is coming from. Working together, at least for a while, seems the only option. And Diego is more than willing to help the beautiful woman. Slowly their searches start to flow together. It seems there is a common thread in both searches, a man named Michael, or Mateo, as Diego once know him, his brother. But just who has his brother become? A man working for the cartel, or a successful business man who Tara’s friend has fallen in love with? But there is more at play then Tara’s missing friend and Diego’s lost family. There is a shadowy figure hiding behind the scenes, pulling the strings. The whole team will come together to get to the bottom of their mysterious enemy.

    This is the fifth book in the Off the Grid series about a group of FBI agents that lost one of their own in a training mission. This is the story of Diego, one of those agents, and Tara.

If you enjoy romantic suspense, you'll enjoy this one. There is plenty of non-stop action as Diego and Tara run from the shooters and try to figure out who is after them and why. It was great to see the other agents come together to help Diego and Tara out. I also liked the conclusion to Vincent in their lives. There were two things that were an issue for me. One would be that I thought there was a bit of instant love between Tara and Diego, which I normally don't care for. With everything going on I could understand why it was that way, but it's still hard for me to buy into a relationship when they're pretty much in love from the get go. The second is that I thought things with Vincent were wrapped up too quickly. I would have liked to have known why exactly Vincent did why he did. I get he blames to group for what happened to Jaime, but why was he so convinced they were all responsible? Why did he not believe it was just a tragic accident? It's not really answered. I would recommend reading the series in order, as things with Vincent have been escalating throughout the series. It will also give readers a chance to get to know all the members of the tight-knit group. This wasn't my favorite book of the series, but I still really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to Flynn's book, which is the next in the series. **An ARC was provided to voluntarily review**

Tara is looking for her best friend that disappeared. Was the shooting related to her or up Diego? Barbara Freethy is a master at romantic suspense. This series has been one of the best I’ve read. Each story builds on the one before it but can also be read as stand alone stories. The characters are realistic & well formed. The action grabs you from the first page & keeps you interested until the very end. I like that in each story, the other characters are brought in so the reader gets updates on their lives. This enforces the feeling that this group of agents has not only become friends and watch each other’s backs but that they also have become family.

To me the books are a fast read, because I have so much trouble putting them down. Diego Rivera is looking in a small Colombian village for his mother and brother. When he goes to approach the priest in town, there is another person speaking with him. A beautiful woman who is seemingly upset, but the priest leaves to run a service. While he waits for the service to be over, gunfire erupts and he and Tara Powell (She is the other person who was speaking to the Priest.) have to run for safety. She is looking for her best friend who disappeared in the same Colombian village. Together, they end up working together searching for their people. Having to get from place to place and hiding from the cartel that seems to be quite interested in them bonds them quickly. They get hints, clues and help as they continue to search, going from one place to another. I have enjoyed reading this series and have found the books interesting to read. I love the characters and the drama. Dangerous Choice (Off the Grid FBI #5) by Barbara Freethy is a good read.

FBI agent Diego hasn’t seen or heard from his mother and younger brother since that night eighteen years ago when his father dragged him out of the family home. Now he has received a tip that might help him locate one or both. American school teacher Tara hasn’t heard from her best friend, Bethany, in several weeks...most unusual. She sets about retracing Bethany’s steps. Diego and Tara meet at a church service in Columbia, South America, each intending to speak to the priest about to conduct a mass. The next thing they know is the priest has been shot and the congregation is dodging lots of bullets. Taking cover in a graveyard Diego and Tara are blindsided when they once again are dodging bullets. Who is the target, Tara, Diego, both? Each has their own quest, but decide they should stick together for safety. That’s all I will say about the plot. Just be prepared for an exciting, suspenseful story with lots of twists. Ms. Freethy creates strong characters and realistic situations that keep the reader engaged, turning pages, and a little breathless. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book. Most highly recommend.

When the violence breaks out, Tara is entangled with Diego. As they travel back to the US, violence continues to follow them but who is the target. This is the fifth book in the FBI series. These books are a romance novel but do have thrilling action and mystery. I am glad the mystery over who was pulling the strings is wrapped up. I felt like this book was a little choppy. Maybe it’s because I never got a full glimpse of Diego in the other books. I felt like I wanted to know more about him. Freethy is keeping the series going and I’m excited to see where it goes.

    The 5th book in this FBI Off the Grid series, and the one that completes the story arc involving 5 close friends from their Quantico days who become targets of a very deep mole in the FBI, one with a personal vendetta against them. Yes, the saga of the mole also comes to a satisfactory end, if a bit precipitously. The whole vendetta/mole plot was a side plot in each story anyway, that is basically wrapped up in the last chapter.

Yes, the saga of the mole also comes to a satisfactory end, if a bit precipitously. The whole vendetta/mole plot was a side plot in each story anyway, that is basically wrapped up in the last chapter. Diego is in a village in Colombia, searching for information on his missing mother and younger brother from the local priest, when gunfire kills the priest and send Diego on the run, along with Tara who was seeking information on a missing friend. Diego and Tara remain on the run, evading members of a drug cartel determined to either kidnap or kill them (which seems to shift every other chapter) for basically the entire rest of the story. The end of their respective searches is bittersweet, but their own personal stories end satisfyingly. You do have to suspend your disbelief quite a bit, but then that's what escapist reading is all about. I did like that the author set up very nicely continuing the series with a different team and story arc as I have enjoyed these a great deal.

He was a FBI agent he needed to get his head in the game, who was the shooter, and to keep them safe. Once again the author has given a tense plot that includes families, friends and the loyalties they had to them. The action includes the drug cartels, shots, being chased, and with an attraction to each other. She draws in the other characters from the previous stories. Her plots leave us with an. unusual ending and wanting more. GivenARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

The only bad thing is that I know the series has to end sometime...and I don’t want it to end!

Dangerous Choice is Diego & Tara’s Story, as well as the resolution of who was behind all the mysterious events and why. Loved this book, and these characters!
