Found in the Lost (Special Forces: Operation Alpha) (The Leonidas Corporation Book 1) by Tarina Deaton is a great start to a new series.

Kinley is so excited about what she’s discovered and it comes through in the way she was written. Shane is a big alpha male trying to find his way in the civilian world.

I loved Kinley, she was smart and not afraid to show it. Unfortunately those smarts put a target on her back and people want the information she has. Thankfully she literally runs into Shane who takes it upon himself to take care of her, though he doesn’t understand why.

There was suspense, mystery and some pretty steamy moments. This was a bit different from the other books I have read by Ms. Deaton with there was a little more danger involved and I loved it. Looking forward to keeping up with this series.

Found in the Lost is the first book in Tarina Deaton’s Leonidas Corporation series. I had read her Combat Heart series so I thought that I knew what to expect and she absolutely did live up to my expectations and gave us an action packed romantic read that pulls you in from page one with the suspicious man at the airport followed by an attempted attack by bandits….
It is a fast paced read that takes you the long forgotten Mayan ruins for a hunt for long lost treasures. It also gives us Kinley who is on her first archaeological dig and the former Navy SEAL Shane who happens to be wondering round in Guatemalan jungle and who happens to be in the right place right time or … wrong place right time … it gives us friendly banter, camaraderie and the deep bond that Shane has with his friends and team. So if you like suspenseful adventure stories with some romance peppered through it then this book is for you AND I promise you that you will finish it in one sitting! I wonder what comes OR who comes next …

This was such a great book. It had the romance, it had the steamy scenes, it had the heart pounding action and a great story!
Kinley is traveling and from the get go has issues, she runs into Shane, literally and here our story takes off. I loved these two, she is strong in her own way but also not a run and hide type of heroine which I love . Shane was great and I really loved his friends too (i need to have their stories now).
This looks like it will be a great series and I cant wait to read them all.

What a brilliant read, I haven’t read many books by this author but when I do get my hands on one, I’m never disappointed. This one is no different, I was captivated from the start of this read, I was pulled in and was unable to put this read down.

This book has a bit of everything which makes it that much more better! It has suspense, action, adventure and let’s not forget the romance. To top off this read this author has created amazing characters that are relatable, lovable and connectable which made me love following their story throughout.

I was so invested in this read that I didn’t want it to end, but it now just makes me more excited to read book #2 to see where this author takes us! I can’t wait to read more from this series and this author, this is one not to be missed!

Couldn’t. Put. It. Down.

Seriously… when you have a well written book chock full of vivid imagery, suspense, romance, action, some history, and exotic locales… what isn’t to love?! This book had me riveted from beginning to end. There was never time to be bored or lose focus. The plot was quick, the action fast-paced, and the characters extremely relatable. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from Deaton.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Found In The Lost by Tarina Deaton is a quick little romance in the jungle. All Kinley wants to do is show the world her accomplishment. Desperate to get to an archaeological dig so she can let her light shine she gets left out when she lands at the airport. All good love stories have a hero and Shane does not disappoint. A former Navy SEAL is there to pick up her pieces. Starting out Kinley doesn’t seem to be the strong individual that she turns out to be, in short, Kinley is surprising all the way around. This is a steamy little romance with some situations that might make some people uncomfortable. But a sweet little love story none the less.

I was hooked from the first few pages and I didn’t out this down until it was finished. The suspense kept me turning those pages and the sexy factor kept my eyelids open.

This is just a perfect story. First off I love jungle themes. Anything can and will happen there. Secondly I liked Kinley Dunn from the get go. She is smart and quick witted. The meeting between the two characters was a great way to introduce them. It was quick and showed the domineering side of Shane. He gets what he wants! Lastly The intro of Ace and Phantom was nicely done. The author wrote then well. I see the dangerous, I see the humorous And I see the protectiveness in them.

This is a dangerous story filled with protectiveness and love from the characters. This isn’t my first book by this author. I love how she writes and brings feeling to her characters. She did a great job with the spin off and i look forward to more from this new series.

Found in the Lost (Special Forces: Operation Alpha) (The Leonidas Corporation Book 1) Tarina Deaton. From page one I knew I was going to like this book and I ended up loving it and it’s characters. I pride myself on not judging a book by the cover but I’ll be honest this one definitely pulled me in. And the inside kept me completely hooked. Kinley and Shane captures readers right from the get go and I was sad when I was at the end, I really wanted it to just keep going. But unfortunately all good things must coming to an end. The storyline is well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. It’s got romance and adventure. The characters are complex and relatable while pulling you completely into their world. I’m giving this story a five star review and highly recommend it. Also very excited to see where the author takes readers next!

Found in the Lost was a great 5 star read and book one in the Leonidas Corporation series.
Tarina Deaton continues to pull me in with her writing.

This is Kinley and Shane’s story.
Kinley is an archaeologist and loves what she does, she is going on her first adventure. Kinley is sweet and sassy. Shane is a former Navy SEAL who is vacationing in Guatemala and looking to explore the ruins.

Kinley needs a lift to the Mayan ruin, Shane offers to help her. If only he knew what his offer would entail. The sparks flew between these two almost immediately. Things take an interesting twist when they are attacked. Shane’s protective side kicks in and he calls in some friends to help keep her safe. Who is after her and why?

Tarina does a great job with her writing and pulls you right into the story. We get adventure, danger, mystery, romance and so much more in this quick read. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. Be prepared for some unexpected twists and turns as well.
I can’t wait to read more from this author and series. 1-click and get started today.

I love books that combine romance with a good action suspense and this one certainly delivers. There are plenty of twists and turns in this plot to keep you guessing while you’re rooting for the “Happily Ever After” between Shane and Kinley. Kinley may have been a little naïve and gotten tricked into coming to Guatemala with her research, but she is still wary enough to recognize danger. She quickly decides who she can trust and finds out how demented even good people can become. Shane on the other hand is used to dangerous situations, but he wasn’t prepared for how Kinley affected him. He makes it his mission to protect her life and her academic reputation. It was very fun and exciting to follow their story and their discoveries.
