Lucie and John.
Their story was short, quick and super steamy with a great thrill ride to the end. ...more

By Cynthia L. Turner June 10, 2017

OUI!

This is a quick and enjoyable read. John Quick and Lucie Morgan met under unusual circumstances. John literally rescued Lucie as she was being held by terrorists. Lucie fell for John and he for her. Misunderstandings abound but John and Lucie do get their HEA! Great read! ...more

The Perfect Hostage Misty Evans

Nothing holds you tighter than the embrace of a strong, masculine, sizzling embrace of a skillful protector. Okay, so that is my opinion, however, Misty Evans takes that heat and creates a tremendously engaging story of love, lust, sensational suspense and sensualit... ...more

By Sara April 16, 2014

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good romance novel, but make it a military romance? All in. I am all in, even if I don't fully know what I'm signing up for. I don't know why I didn't specifically look for a guy in the military when I was single because lawd, child they are delicious. Something... ...more

By Amy R April 18, 2014

Happy sigh. I recently finished another Super Agent book by Misty Evans. The Perfect Hostage is a novella featuring Lucie Morgan and John Quick. We saw them both in I'd Rather Be In Paris, which is Book 2 in the series, but if you haven't read that one, no worries, you can enjoy this one just as... ...more

By Lee April 25, 2014

3.5 stars
In this novella you are thrown right into the story without any preamble. John and Lucie first meet in book 2, I'd Rather Be in Paris, but you don't really need to have read the rest of the series to understand how this story comes about. I do however, usually like to read a full series,... ...more

By Miriam April 27, 2014

***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review***
(This is a short story/novella. This review is not based on story length but story content as length has very little to do with how much I enjoy a book.)

Every now and then, it's refreshing to read about a woman who will pull out all the... ...more

By Babel April 25, 2014

Sexy and action packed, how could I say no to The Perfect Hostage? I was instantly attracted to the premise of the story. A woman in love with a special ops guy plans to kidnap him for the weekend for a hot, body-to-body operation? Count me in!
This is such a satisfying read. Both John and Lucy ar... ...more

By Sue "DavinciKittie" April 28, 2014

The Perfect Hostage grips you from the very first page and keeps up its addicting momentum through the entire (not nearly long enough) story. I loved John Quick and his southern boy drawl - which was very well done by the way, right down to the slang and colloquialisms. I could practically hear h... ...more

By Andretta April 26, 2014

Lucie, who apparently was kidnapped in another book (see didn't read it) has a thing for hunky mchunk John. I mean first who could not be in love with men named John, and definitely former/current soldiers named John, oh wait is that just me?...well anyhos. So Lucie is a French Lady who is the il... ...more

By ci July 26, 2016

4 stars because it was a novella and things had to be rushed.

This was my first Misty Evans book, but it won't be my last! I'm a military romance thriller freak.

John is a loner, doesn't want to be committed, but the heart wants what the heart wants...so there John!! Lucie wants John, Lucie is dete... ...more

By Rosemary April 24, 2014

John Quick and Lucy Morgan are in for a wild ride in The Perfect Hostage. They may have wild chemistry but other problems prevent them from committing. John doesn't play well with outsiders while Lucy is looking to be part of a real family. These are the least of their problems as a sinister figu... ...more

By Amanda April 27, 2014

This was a short story packed with action and lust.

Lucie has fallen in love with the man who rescued her from a hostage situation several months ago. John just hasn't realized that he is perfect for her. He has decided long ago that he doesn't do the commitment thing. He is trained for high leve... ...more

By Paula April 22, 2014

The Perfect Hostage is an exciting romance-suspense-action novel. The time period of this story is only a couple of days so the author creates a fast moving plot to encase this story of John and Lucie. While there are references to a previous novel in which they actually met, I was not confused a... ...more

By Tammy April 21, 2014

A great lunch time read! A girl who know what she wants and goes after it. John saves Lucie from a terrorist and although he has feelings for her and wants to be with her, John feels that with the danger that comes along with his job it is too risky to love anyone. But when Lucie “kidnaps” him fo... ...more

By Heather April 01, 2014

I loved John, "a party with Lucie's highfalutin family? Send me back to Afghanistan, man. Sh**, even another goddamn Mexican prison would be a effing picnic compared to this." He's just so sexy, "the cake can wait." He lowered his lips to hers. "I can't." The kiss was as hot as the man." And let... ...more

By Mandy April 25, 2014

I’ve experienced a bit of a romantic suspense dry spell until very recently. Entangled has a couple of imprints that have published a number of books that I have had the pleasure of reading and now…reviewing, that have filled my Romantic Suspense void quite nicely.

For the rest of my review: Strai... ...more

By Patricia April 11, 2014

An action packed read. The characters of John and Lucie were explosive together. Great chemistry ...fast paced read that kept me reading most of the night. John grew up without any family and found his way while serving his country. Lucie grew up without her father and truly only wants a real fam... ...more

By Samantha July 07, 2014

This is my first book by Misty and I have to say I'm greatly impressed. Granted this was only a novella and I read it way out of order. I greatly appreciated Lucie yes being a victim but stopping at nothing to get John to realize what she wanted.

This had a good story to it, kept me hooked, and h... ...more
