Lynette Eason consistently delivers fast-paced reads with intriguing plots, and Unacceptable Risk delivers as expected.
In addition, Eason handle the topics of depression and suicide with a delicate and understanding touch without making blanket statements about treatment. Instead, she emphasizes that treatment is different for everyone with mental health issues. And while there is some suspense built around this topic after Sarah’s brother commits suicide, it is never brushed off.
Gavin is a great character who supported Sarah while protecting her to the best of his ability. He listens but he also doesn’t shy away from the difficult conversations. Sarah, on the other hand, is a little harder to connect with. Her resentment and anger toward her dad throughout most of the book got old—especially when her bitterness and unforgiveness are decidedly not how a Christian should act.
The resolution between Sarah and her father came too little too late for me, but the other pieces of the story made up for it, and I am anticipating the January release of the next book in the series.

Acceptable Risk is about Sarah Denning, an Army journalist who, after being captured in the Middle East, rescued, and flown out for medical attention, finds out that her high ranking father has arranged for her to be discharged. Livid with her father, she also discovers that her brother, back in the states receiving treatment for PTSD, has committed suicide. Once she has returned to the United States, Sarah receives treatment for her wounds at the VA Hospital where she overhears some confusing and frightening conversations that lead her to believe that her brother’s death was not a suicide and that something sinister is going on at the VA. Gavin Black is a former Army Ranger who now runs a private security company. After he is called in to rescue Sarah and he successfully frees her from her captors, he is hired by Sarah’s father to continue to protect her. As Sarah recooperates, the two begin to uncover more information together. But they must hurry to put all the pieces of this puzzle together before they themselves are killed.

This is the first book I’ve read by Lynette Eason. As I read Acceptable Risk, I was drawn in from the beginning, and it was exciting throughout the whole story. I felt a connection with Sarah, with how her wounds from her past, especially those surrounding her father, continue to drive her, and with how she allows the mistakes from her past to define her. Besides her physical wounds, she has a lot of emotional healing to do. I also really liked Gavin. He is supportive and protective, but he also strives to understand Sarah and what her needs are, what her wounds are about, and what her triggers are. I appreciate when authors tackle or shed light on a topic that is a real concern in our lives, and in this book, I appreciate the attention given to PTSD, the seriousness of it, and the need for real help for those who suffer from their trauma. Finally, I appreciate the spiritual aspects of the story, forgiveness and grace. I look forward to checking out more books by Lynette Eason in the future.

If you like lots of action and suspense in your books, then this one is for you. The action starts on page one and basically never lets up throughout the book. Army journalist Sarah Denning finds herself kidnapped in Afghanistan as the book begins. A last-minute rescue occurs, but not before injuries and deaths happen. Once Sarah makes it back to the U.S., she must deal with her younger brother's recent suicide, a father who she despises, a new love interest, and a group of people who apparently want to kill her. This adds up to a whole lot of tension and action. The ending is a real cliffhanger with some definite surprises concerning the identities of the would-be killers. A romp of a read! ( )

I always enjoy Lynette Eason's books. After reading "Collateral Damage (Danger Never Sleeps #1)" I knew I was in for a fast-paced, excitement filled, and intriguing experience in "Acceptable Risk" the 2nd in the series.

This book picks up characters and connections from Collateral Damage especially with Sarah and Gavin. Sarah is kidnapped in Afghanistan and Gavin is part of the rescue team. As if that were not enough trauma, danger follows Sarah every day and every step of the way.

It's such a delight to be able to read an exciting adventure (and yes, a bit of a romance) without all the trash talk, sex scenes, and depravity. While this is a Christian read published by Revell which is a Christian publishing house, it is not overtly preachy.

I totally enjoyed reading Acceptable Risk; and after reading the preview of book #3, Active Defense I can say that this is an exciting series not to be missed.

I received a free copy in a contest I entered on LibraryThing.com ( )

Sarah Denning is a military journalist with the Army in the Middle East when her convoy is attacked and she's taken hostage. When former Army Ranger Gavin Black is asked by his old unit commander--Sarah's imposing father--to plan an extremely risky rescue, he reluctantly agrees and successfully executes it.

Back in the US, Sarah is livid when she's discharged on a false psychiatric evaluation and vows to return to the Army. Until she learns of her brother's suicide. Unable to believe her brother would do such a thing, she puts her plans on hold and enlists Gavin to help her discover the truth. What they uncover may be the biggest story of Sarah's career--if she can survive long enough to write it.

Strap in for another breakneck nail-biter from bestselling romantic suspense author Lynette Eason that will have you up turning pages long into the night. ( )
