5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 21 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read Last Salute first so I already met Logan and Meg, guess got them back to front but both are good on their own. Tracey you need to write a number three. I love Tracey's fluid style it makes for easy reading. The characters are likable true and honest. Tracey takes you on a journey and her style lets you participate and feel emotions.. Only my second book of Tracey's but now I guess I'm a fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love in a war zone 4 Oct. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story in this book examines a visit to Afghanistan by a journalist and her meeting with a serving doctor in the Canadian Forces. It is a lovely story of romance in the most inhospitable place and also highlights the stress that the medics go through. I loved this book and look forward to more from this author

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I have read in 2009! 17 Oct. 2009
By Readsalot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I loved this book! I read, on average over 250 books a year, on all different genre's,
but Tracey Richardson's "No Rules of Engagement" is, by far, the best book I have read
this year. Richardson, in both "The Candidate" and "No Rules of Engagement" does a excellent
job of pushing her novels from the standpoint of being not just another love story, as she takes
on such hard hitting topics, as women in combat in the war in Afghanistan, as well as a would be
woman president. No rules is a fast paced, page turner. I stayed up until 2 am just to finish
reading it in one setting as I could not put it down. There is a little bit in this book for
everyone, military women, medical professionals, journalists and photo journalist, hopeless
romantics, tear jerker scenes, mom's and yes, even women hockey players! Enter Major Logan Sharp,
serious, committed and hot as hell, but a total devoted to her career professional.
In comes Jillian Knight who rocks Logan's world, who is everything Logan Sharp is not. Logan
meets the perfect Yang to her Yin, but is she willing to take a chance finally in letting in her
true soul mate ? Who comes along with all the baggage that we do at this stage of our lives?
A must read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Love in a war zone 5 Feb. 2010
By Sage320 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Tracey Richardson is one of those writers who has a knack for taking an item from the front page of the newspaper and turning into a personal, dramatic story. No Rules of Engagement falls squarely in that category.

Jillian Knight is an award winning photographer who has been hired by National Geographic Magazine to do a photo spread showing what happens at a medical unit stationed in Afghanistan. Major Logan Sharp's assignment, when she's not functioning as a doctor, is to provide Jillian with whatever help she needs and to keep her safe. War can confuse or clarify many things, especially in an area where every square inch of soil is a battlefield and death can strike from anywhere. Jillian is forced to confront the problems of the relationship she left in Detroit and Logan has to figure out what to do with her life when her tour is over. The intensity of the danger they face causes the women to drop walls faster than they usually would and they discover an attraction. Jillian's commitment to her relationship and Logan's sense of honor won't allow either of them to pursue their feelings, but destiny conspires to bring them together over a year later and much has changed. Now the obstruction is an emotional wound that Logan carries from years before. Jillian isn't sure she can break through Logan's defenses in a battle where there are no rules of engagement, but she's willing to try.

It could be dangerous to set a book in the midst of the situation in Iraq/Afghanistan because of the dissension over what is happening there, but Richardson manages to avoid those problems. There are no politics in this book, just a straightforward story about the difficulties for anyone functioning within a war zone, plus a romance. The book is actually in two parts that have different points of focus. In the first half the reader deals with the charged atmosphere in the daily life of war-torn Afghanistan. There is a scene where Jillian goes on a mission to an outer base and the tension can be felt by the reader as the events unfold. The second half of the book involves a totally different scenario. Now that the women have returned to their homes they have to deal with their emotions, their pasts and their potential future. Richardson provides for a break in the action that covers a number of months and that allows the reader to deal separately with the two situations, yet understand the overlap that ties them together.

No Rules of Engagement is a well-written book that is entertaining. While it's basically a romance, it's also extremely pertinent to what is going on in the world today. Richardson continues to deliver interesting books that cause the readers to look forward to her next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 11 Dec. 2009
By luvshoes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I liked this book. I enjoy Tracey Richardson and her style of writing.
The war is tough to write about, but Tracey seemed to capture the current events well. I like the characters Logan and Jillian and how their love for each other evolved. I think that the story line could have explored more into how Logan adjusted once she returned home,but overall I enjoyed the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars *** 5 Aug. 2011
By lenkalotte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed the first half of this book set on an Army base in Afghanistan.

Then it enters cliched romance land, where issues are glossed over and character motivation is kept in the dark, only to hint at *something* before the big reveal and HEA.

Still, likeable characters, quick read on a train ride.

4.0 out of 5 stars Topical story, 25 Mar. 2010
By E. B. MULLIGAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The novel opens when thirty-four year old Major Logan Sharp, a Canadian doctor serving at the military hospital, meets Pulitzer award winning photographer thirty-six year old Michigan native and Columbia graduate Jillian Knight on a crushingly hot landing strip of Kandahar Afghanistan. Over a two week period the two are inseparable. Their friends, Captain and nurse Meg Atwood and fellow photographer & BFF Mark Kennedy observe the chemistry between the two.

But a romance doesn't seem possible. Jillian is in a committed relationship with her partner of seven years and they have a two year old daughter they both love.

This was a fun read and a great look at the day to day life on the military base, the description of the places and events were so realistically presented I have to wonder if the author had been on location.

The events that unfold 15 months later were a huge surprise. But I can't say more or I would give the story away.
