Between new clients and governmental contracts, Trident Security has grown in leaps and bounds. To accommodate the increased caseload, they’ve added a second team to their Tampa headquarters. After hiring seven “best of the best” from military and law enforcement backgrounds, they’ve put together a cracker-jack group of six men and one woman. But before they are turned out to handle their own missions, they must first prove they are a cohesive and capable unit.
Dropped into the Rocky Mountains, the Omega team has minimal supplies and two days to make it back to civilization. But what they find in the wilderness turns a training op into a real one. Will they all make it back alive?
***This novella is a bridge between the original Trident Security Series and the spin off series, Trident Security Omega Team. While it is not necessary to read this prequel before the Omega Team series, it will give the reader more insight and background of the new operatives of Trident Security and their support team.

The new team has six men and one woman. They are sent out into the wilderness to prove their "ready" status to their agency. While out there, a girl goes missing. Can this team find her and all get home safely?
This was a short jaunt into the new series about the team created by the Trident Security owners. I loved how the author brought all the team members personalities into it. I especially enjoyed some of the foreshadowing into books to come. I cannot wait for the next installment in the Trident Security Omega Team series.

Trident Security - Omega Team - Prequel - BDSM romance/thriller from Samantha A. Cole - Amazing!
What can I say? Samantha Cole has done it again! This is an amazing novella introducing us to the members of the Omega Team of Trident Security in depth for the first time. It is truly the beginning of the Omega Team's story. It's thrilling and will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. The seven men and women comprising the Omega Team of Trident Security are ready for their final shakedown mission to determine if they're ready to operate on their own. They've been training together with both the Alpha Team and Trident Security West for months and now they finally have their chance to prove themselves as a team. Their mission: dropping into a sparsely-populated area of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado with minimal equipment and rations. They must make it through the harsh, unforgiving terrain with a single satellite phone for use in emergencies only (broken bones don't count) and they have a limited amount of time to accomplish this mission. The Omega Team has no sooner been dropped from their helicopter and left on their own when the first hiccup in their mission is discovered. A local hiker has gone missing with no evidence as to what happened to her. It's as if she vanished from the face of the earth. There's no trace of her anywhere. The leader of the Alpha Team, Ian "Boss-Man" Sawyer contacts the team and tells them of the hiker situation but informs them they are to still remain on mission. It's a sticky situation and the Omega Team must become the cohesive unit they've trained to be in order to succeed. Can this team work together not only to complete their mission on time but to find and rescue the missing hiker? The stakes are high and the unknown factors even higher! During the course of the mission, you learn the backstory of each individual member of the Omega Team. If you've read the entire Trident Security series, you've met the Omega Team members before but you've never learned exactly how they were recruited for the Omega Team and what their motivations are for being a part of the elite Trident Security Company. To say that each individual character is fascinating is an understatement. Each has his or her own unique reason for being a part of this unit. They all have their demons but they're all equally dedicated to succeed. Failure is not an option for any member of the Omega Team. This book is full of unexpected twists and turns. It held my attention from the very first word and, quite frankly, I couldn't put the book down! I stayed up all night to finish it because I had to know how the story was going to end. Samantha Cole, with her background in law enforcement and her absolute attention to detail in every aspect of every book she writes, is a superb storyteller and her work is riveting. It is very evident from the caliber of her writing that she researches whatever subject matter she might not have personal experience with until she is as conversant with that material as the experts she obviously consults. I'm an admitted bibliophile and have read just about every genre of fiction out there and I do not exaggerate when I say that Samantha Cole is one of the very best authors I have ever read. As an aside, the entire Trident Security series (including the novellas/short stories) include a significant amount of BDSM lifestyle activities. There is a minimal amount of BDSM included in this novella but the activities of The Covenant (the very exclusive and private BDSM club co-owned by Ian, Devon and Mitch Sawyer) are part of the ongoing story brought forward from the prior books in the series. While each book in the series can be read as a standalone book, I would highly recommend that you read each book of the Trident Security series in order, including the novellas, so as not to miss any of the recurring characters and their roles in the series. And while some of you who may have read Ms. Cole's previous books Trident series might be thinking, "Oh no, minimal BDSM? How disappointing," please don't. The BDSM elements are there and will be continued going forward in this series. This book is every bit as wonderful as the previous books in this series and I would HIGHLY recommend it.
