Review: The Geneva Decision
The Geneva Decision by Seeley James

Trigger Warnings: murder, violence, fighting, domestic violence
My Thoughts: I read an excerpt of this story last spring and really enjoyed it, so was excited to find it on NetGalley and finally be able to read the full story. I have had it happen before where an excerpt blew me away only to discover once I moved past that point that the story was not good, but that was not the case here. This first book in the Pia Sabel series was very fast-paced, but did not skip on character development. While the characters were a bit cliché at times, they weren't annoyingly so, and I think that this author has a great deal of potential. There are three shorts out there that I would like to go ahead and read when I have a chance, and those who enjoy fast-paced thrillers should probably enjoy this book a great deal. While not for everyone, I'm sure, I enjoyed this story a great deal.

Synopsis: Pia Sabel plays to win.
Until a few weeks ago, she was an international soccer star. But now she’s taken the helm of her billionaire father’s private security company, and she’s playing against a whole new set of opponents—the kind who shoot to kill.
On her first day on the job, Pia’s client is assassinated in front of her. There’s no time for training, so Pia must trust her instincts and athletic skills to unravel the complicated maze of money laundering and piracy that will take her from Swiss mansions to the jungles of Cameroon.
Her battle-hardened employees suspect she’s just a spoiled rich girl with a mean corner kick. But Pia’s got some unexpected moves of her own. Will they be enough to bring her team through its mission?
