Series Spotlight on LCR Elite by Christy Reece
LCR Elite: Infiltrating the most volatile locations in the world, LCR Elite Operatives risk everything to rescue high value targets. Unsanctioned. Off the grid. Every operation a secret, danger-filled mission. LCR Elite will stop at nothing, no matter the cost to fulfill their promise.
Running on Empty: An LCR Elite Novel (book 1)
Highly captivating and emotional story filled with love, pain, trust and lack of trust, horror, revenge, loyalty, action and suspense.
Action packed emotional ride from the beginning to the end. Fabulous characters that I adore each time I read about them. I simply love catching up with some of my favorite agents from previous LCR books. While some are in this story, they don’t take away from it and you don’t have to have read previous books. We meet new agents too and I can’t wait to read their upcoming stories. I read this when it was released in September 2014. It still gets to me. One of my very favorites of Christy Reece’s books and I LOVE all her books. It could be because of the main characters deep love for one another and having that love stripped away. Finding each other again and having to fight for that love again after being tortured, led to believe things that aren’t true, and hoping the memories and truth come back. A very powerful read.
The Danger Has Only Begun
Having survived a brutal childhood, Sabrina Fox believed she could handle anything. That was before she watched the love of her life die before her very eyes. Brokenhearted, her emotions on lockdown, she finds purpose and hope as an LCR Elite Operative rescuing victims from some of the most volatile places in the world.
Covert ops agent Declan Steele is used to a life of danger and deceit, but when the one person he trusted and believed in above all others sets him up, he’ll stop at nothing to make her pay. Finally rescued from his hellish prison, Declan has one priority—hunt down Sabrina Fox and exact his revenge.
Trusting no one is a lonely, perilous path. Sabrina swears she’s innocent and Declan must make a decision–trust his heart or his head. As memories of their life together returns, he realizes just how treacherous his torture had been and the target of his revenge shifts. But when Sabrina is taken, retribution is the last thing on his mind. With the assistance of Last Chance Rescue Elite, Declan races to rescue the only woman he has ever loved before it’s too late.
Chance Encounter: An LCR Elite Novel (book 2)
Christy Reece consistently delivers emotion, suspense, and fantastic reading. This was, in my opinion, not the normal full-out action, intense packed LCR novel that I’ve come to know, but a sweeter story with a lot of tender romance. I loved it. The action did come, but it was later in the novel. Kacie’s character is pure sweetness with growing confidence while still working on her recovery from evil events five years ago. Brennan is full of self-contempt; a victim of his own demons. He was unjustly judged and never fought to redeem himself because he just didn’t care enough. He shows Kacie his gentleness, makes her feel treasured, makes her feel again, and gives her strength to get through everything being thrown at her. He feels, however, that he will taint her reputation by being around her. She is a model known worldwide with more greatness in store. He is a hated former football celebrity with an ax to grind with the press. They just wouldn’t work. But their chemistry is undeniable and they can’t fight it. Again, Ms. Reece threw me in different directions on the villain. I didn’t even get close on guessing the right one, never had the villain on my radar. What a specular ending. A wonderful addition to the LCR Elite series.
Chance Brought Them Together. A Killer Is Determined To Rip Them Apart.
She’s the face of innocence whose secrets, if uncovered, could destroy her carefully crafted life.

He’s a disgraced former sports star looking for redemption, determined to stay in the shadows.
Once the golden boy of the NFL, Brennan Sinclair’s fall from grace was witnessed by the entire world. Determined to stay out of the limelight and make his life count for something, he joins the Elite branch of Last Chance Rescue. Brennan never expected his first assignment would draw him back into the life that almost destroyed him.
Some secrets should never be kept. Some sins can never be forgiven.
Someone knows exactly who Kacie Dane is and will stop at nothing to destroy her. Brennan is sure that he, along with his LCR Elite partners, can keep Kacie safe and unmask the evil trying to destroy her, but he never expected to lose his heart to the one woman he couldn’t have.
A killer bent on revenge. A woman who refuses to be broken. A man in need of redemption.
No one is safe.
Running Scared: An LCR Elite Novel (book 3)
Running Scared, the third book in Christy Reece LCR Elite series, spotlights operatives Riley Ingram and Justin Kelly. Justin first came on the scene in book 2 of the series (Run to Me) and made an impression on me as he was on his own, undercover, trying to find and save his kidnapped sister. He later joined LCR as an operative a few books later. Riley’s character was introduced later in the series and has been somewhat of a mystery character though you knew a good backstory was there. She rarely interacted with others, was closed-off and withdrawn. The two are partners who work great together on ops but ignore each other otherwise. They both trust and respect each other and find themselves fighting their attraction for each other. Riley has reached a point in her life where she is ready to face her past and stop hiding. Many characters return from previous books to help Riley & Justin take down the evil people of her past.
Running Scared is a heart wrenching story that gives you action, family betrayal, courage, determination, passion, support, trust, and love. Christy Reece writes bad-assed heroes and heroines that you root for and fall in love with, along with pure evil villains that have you looking over your shoulder. As always, Reece delivers an emotional, intense, action-filled, romantic suspense story that ends with the Happily Ever After. I truly enjoyed reading Riley and Justin’s love story and having Riley take down the evilness of her past and finally feel that she belongs and has a family in LCR.
To Have A Future, They Must Face The Past Together
Riley Ingram escaped hell, taking secrets with her that could get her killed. As an Elite operative for Last Chance Rescue, Riley’s single-minded focus is on saving others from a similar fate.

When the past comes calling, colliding with the present, the LCR duo have no choice but to face it together. Relying on each other’s strength and courage, they’ll work to destroy one of the most horrific monsters LCR has ever faced.
But some secrets can’t stay hidden. And sometimes plans fall apart. It’ll take every bit of their grit and fortitude for Riley and Justin to stay alive to have the future together they’re just now realizing they want more than anything.
And coming soon….
