Elizabeth LeBlanc and Derek Vaughn meet again under rather implausible circumstances when Derek finds evidence of a terrorist sleeper cell during an operation in Afghanistan that leads him straight back to Texas and back to Elizabeth. Having spent the better part of a year pining for each other, Elizabeth and Derek have a real chance at making things work between them, even though it seems the obstacles (both perceived and real) are too many to overcome without losses or heavy compromises.

As a reader, I’ve always been uncannily drawn to the chemistry that I find between peripheral characters and while reading Scorched, Elizabeth and Derek drew my attention with their tentative interactions and their chemistry. I’m thrilled that they’ve finally gotten their own story – even as far-fetched as the events seem at times – and and even more intrigued by the angsty scenes between the 2 other side characters of Luke and Hailey that Ms Griffin introduces in this book.

The Tracers series have been a hit and miss for me and in taking a step away from forensic anthropology, Beyond Limits is a solid read, as well as a refreshing change from the previous books – and one which I definitely hope subsequent books could build on.
