2.5 StarsHaving read and enjoyed this author's Harmless series, I was thrilled when I saw she was coming out with a spin-off series. Nothing better for me than a sexy romantic suspense and Melissa Schroeder sure does know how to deliver on both the suspense and a sexy love scene. Unfortunately in the case of this book, it was a case of both hit and miss which caused me to struggle with my rating quite a bit.What I enjoyedThe suspense aspect. This was the main reason that kept me flipping the pag [...]
Oh man this one was so much fun to read and not for the mystery. I had more fun with the "will they or won't they" situation between Emma and Del and then there was the whole task force squad. I see lots of situations where there will be romance among members and it will be fun to see each them fall.With Del and Emma things were interesting as Emma is a bit strange, and I mean that in a good way. Emma is a bit literal, so it made for some interesting interactions between the two of them. When yo [...]
3.0 RATING - I love romantic suspense but this just fell flat for me. It was a slow read and took me forever to finish. I put it down several times to read other books before coming back and finally finishing.I've read other books by this author before and enjoyed them so surprised this didn't rate higher for me. One thing that I haven't noticed in other books by the author which I definitely noticed here (and is a major pet peeve of mine) is the author not using contractions throughout the book [...]
5.0 Star Review Seductive Reasoning (Task Force Hawaii #1) by Melissa SchroederThe Task Force Hawaii team works on a variety of cases in conjunction with local, state and federal agencies. The first book in the series is all about Martin “Del” Delano, a former Army Special Forces Officer, who heads up the Task Force Hawaii team. He and his team are on the hunt for a serial killer and Emma Mitchell is the genius who is contracted to the team to assist them.Their attraction is mutual, despite [...]
Emma Taylor has a brain that makes her very unique, both in how she can see things others can’t right away and with her photographic memory. Emma lives life exactly how she wants, even if she is out of step from most of the people around her. Emma has lived on her own since she was a young girl after an ill-fated vacation that left her alone. Emma has lived in several places, but now she has found a place for herself in Hawaii, and she has even agreed to help a new specialty task force when ne [...]
4.5* I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I first started this story, but as a huge fan of Hawaii Five-0 and of Melissa Schroeder's Santini series, I had high hopes for this book, and I'm happy to say I loved this story. Although there are obvious parallels to Hawaii Five-0, the story itself was very original, and had me hooked. Trying to sleep proved very hard as I kept thinking I'll just finish this chapter, but then would immediately dive into the next one! The characters are flawed but ve [...]
4½ Stars Wow, this is a very suspenseful read with a hot & sexy alpha hero. I feel like Melissa Schroeder did an awesome job writing an interesting and twisted crime story all while writing a hot and sexy romance. I also loved the heroine, Emma. She's socially awkward, has some trouble with emotions, doesn't have much of a filter between her brain & her mouth, says whatever is on her mind, and is a genius but she's totally lovable. My son has mild Aspburgers Syndrome and has a lot of th [...]
5 Stars Seductive Reasoning is a fast paced, character driven book that keep you on the edge of your seat. The plot keeps you on the move and guessing, while quirky, sassy and witty characters draw you in for the ride. Del and Emma’s attraction and chemistry is off the charts that creates a lovely sexual tension. The secondary cast of characters demand the same attention as Del and Emma. Intriguing readers to want their stories as well. Passion and personality are two thing I have come to expe [...]
An exciting, high energy romantic suspense from the fantastic Melissa Schroeder. Get to know the guys and gals of Task Force Hawaii (a mix between 50 and Major Crimes). I love that there are so many strong women in TFH. TFH is headed by former Army Special Forces Officer Martin “Del” Delano. There are those who are just waiting for him to fail. Failing to solve this murder may just be the ammunition they need. Luckily Del has a secret weapon in quirky genius Emma Mitchell who is under contra [...]
DNF at 50%This book was just boring the hell out of me. It's suppose to be a first book in a spin off series, but I felt like I was dropped into the middle of a series. A shit ton of characters introduced, all with backstories. Even the H/h had a backstory together that happened before the book started.Just didn't hold my attention
Marked it to-read

He's got a killer to catch and no time for love. Fate has other plans. Martin “Del” Delano and Emma Mitchell couldn’t be more different, but their mutual attraction is hard to deny. Del is a former Special Forces officer who leads the group of highly trained individuals who make up Task Force Hawaii. Emma is a sweet genius who has recently discovered her step-brother, Sean Kaheaku (Harmless Series) and works with the task force as a consultant. While Del and Emma work with the rest of the [...]
This book was the cause of my sleep deprivation over the last 24 hours. Once I started, I couldn't stop until I found out who the killer was. I am used to stories from Melissa Schroeder involving romance and great chemistry between characters, but what really drew me into this story was the mystery and suspense of the case. Don't get me wrong, the suspense between Del and Emma kept me wanting more, as well. The entire department of characters were so well written. There was a nice mix of sentime [...]
Although this book is a spin off from the Harmless series you will not be lost. Emma's brother Sean was in that series and their situation was mentioned and explained. Emma is a genius, simply put. Her mind works like a computer which is wonderful for assisting this task force but puts her in the socially awkward category. Del, the leader of this task force, has always had an instant connection with her. The whole team is working on a serial killer case with very tense moments and great sleuthin [...]
Seductive Reasoning is an exciting start to Melissa Schroeder’s new series, Task Force Hawaii. Schroeder has somehow wrapped a very sweet, very romantic love story around the tale of an horrendous crime spree and it all works without ever lessening the impact of either element. There is a freshness in this book that’s as much the introduction of terrific new characters as it is the excitement of a new series from Melissa Schroeder. Also, Hawaii is familiar territory for this author but the i [...]

While many of Ms. Schroeder's books are set in Hawaii and this new series includes a few characters from her other series, this is a great original start to a new series. This book includes characters from her Harmless Series book "A Little Harmless Rumor"; Sean, Jamie and Randy. While this story introduces the new Task Force Hawaii team, it focuses on the team leader, Del and Sean's sister Emma, both of whom we met in the other book. Just as her other series has done, this one seems to be not o [...]
I love reading romantic suspense and Melissa Schroeder did not disappoint with this story. I've loved reading her Harmless series and I was looking forward to this spin-off series. I enjoyed Del and Emma's relationship and watching them work together on solving this killer case as well as finally seeing them give into their feelings for each other. I could not stop reading because the author had me hooked as I rooted for Del, Emma and the entire task force to catch the serial killer and to see D [...]
I looked forward to reading Emma and Del's story since reading "A Little Harmless Rumor". I wasn't disappointed. Emma is a sweetheart, quirky, smart and socially awkward, and love her blunt honesty. Del has met his match in Emma and after getting hit by her with a 2 by 4, literally, he falls just as hard for her. Love their interaction, in and out of the bedroom. I am happy that Del understands her, is patient and gives her what she needs. We also meet the team that make up TFH and I am looking [...]
I loved this book. I have been waiting on Emma and Del's story since "A Little Harmless Rumor" and I was not disappointed. I loved how Del just gets Emma. He understands her quirks and takes things at her pace. There is romance and intrigue that kept me reading til I had finished it. Melissa Schroeder has been an autobuy for me since her Santini series, but this book has become my new favorite. If you like a hot, sexy read plus a good mystery then this is the book for you. Now I'm ready for the [...]
A great start to a brand new series by this talented author, Seductive Reasoning is a fantastic suspense/thriller with a generous helping of sizzling romance too.Fast-paced and at times edge of your seat gripping, the story is well developed and has a captivating cast of characters that I'm sure will grace the pages of many more books to come. With the right amount of serious tension, dark secrets and fun quirky banter, this is definitely a story that keeps the reader interest from start to fini [...]
I received an ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.I always look forward to a new book by Melissa Schroeder. She never fails to entertain me."Seductive Reasoning" fits right in there. The characters are loveable and hot. I think the intrigue in this book is the best that she has ever written. I only wish the tension with the serial killer had been stretched out a bit more and made into a longer story.Melissa has set the stage for at least another 3 stories based on [...]
Great story Overall rating 4.75 I did truly love this story - the plot, the characters and overall story but thought the ending was a little rushed. That being said about the wrapping up of the case being rushed the rest of the ending was very good. I enjoyed Emma and Del from the last harmless story and they didn't disappoint in this one. The team put together was great. It was a great start to Mel's new series and can't wait for book two.
It was ok. Despite being the first book of the spin off series, you should probably read the original series first in order to understand the back story to this book. I didn't so I was left a bit confused and disappointed because the scene of how they first met was not included here. Instead of a beginning to this romance, it felt more like i got dropped in the middle and then proceeded to the ending.
Romance, Intrigue and Mysteryree of my favorite things! The team has it all together and they are smart and tough. Emma is one of my favorite heroines because social "politics" aren't exactly her thingI love a bluntly honest character. The story is intense and intricate and the characters make me want to be a part of the team.t to mention take a trip to Hawaii!
I enjoy Melissa Schroeder's books. This one was a good combination of romance and police story. The characters in the series are interesting. The crimes, at least in the first two stories, were wrapped up a bit abruptly; I think the stories - both romance and crime - could have extended a bit longer. Still, I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
Like two awesome stories in one. On top of the kick ass love story, there's a mystery/ crime drama that's cleverly written and whole heartedly intriguing. Recommend to any and all drama/suspense and romance fans!
Great start to a new seriesI have been reading Melissa Schroeder for years and have always enjoyed her books. Now that she has started this new series and it is about her beloved Hawaii I knew I was going to like it. Great story, loved the characters and can't wait for more!
Short ReadDel and Emma are so cute together, wow as they come together to catch a serial killer things heat up for them, having the passion that was buried and now can come out. Del is a true alpha male by not wanting her to do anything that he can't protect her at. Enjoy
