2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Claire has never had a passionate lover. However, when her life is in danger from something she has no idea about, Hotwire comes in to rescue her from it. Will they both be able to face their true feelings for each other before her attacker makes another move?

This book is a little less amusing than the other two books in this series, but it still had great descriptions and events. However, the indecisiveness of both Hotwire and Claire made their personalities different from how they are in the other books. Though, the other characters’ personalities are still all right. I found both of the main characters a little whiny and very annoying. :|

Yeah, I really didn’t like the main characters, but the descriptions, events, and smut were the only things I really liked about the book. The smut scenes were very yummy to read. *DROOLS* *SPOILER* It didn’t have any condom scenes like the last two books, but it did have a lot of arguing about him forgetting it. >.>” *END SPOILER*

Anyways, it still had a good blend of suspense and romance, but I could have done without the whining and the feelings conflict between Hotwire and Claire. It also had a pretty good ending for the book and the series, so I was pretty satisfied with how the series ended.

This is the last book in this series; however, there are some connected stories. The connected stories are not apart of this series time-line, but they do mention the characters in this series a little bit. The connected stories are here.

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Josie feels attraction towards Daniel (Nitro), but she thinks he hates her. However, she will soon learn that is not the case, when her dad’s mercenary camp blows up and he goes missing. Will they be able to figure out who is trying to kill her dad? And will they both be willing to face their passionate feelings for each other?

For this series and book, the plot is kind of normal for a romantic suspense novel. But like in the previous book, it had everything it needed to make it unique from being too normal. I still love the descriptions, events, and the personalities of the characters. :D

There are also a few scenes with Josie and Nitro interacting with Lise, Hotwire, Josh (Wolf), and it is still amusing and a little funny when they interact with each other. I find it interesting how Hotwire and Wolf try to ruffle Nitro’s feathers and his temper by using Josie, especially when Hotwire does it. ;)

Another thing I like is how the suspense in the novel makes Nitro realize his feelings for Josie. Also, this book seems to have more “feeling” issues than the first book, mostly because of Nitro’s past.

One more interesting thing is that, like the last book, it has condom scenes, which not many romance books (that I have read) mentions putting on a condom. Also, the smut scenes are very yummy, and the ending is pretty good.

This is the second book in this series; however, there are some connected stories. The connected stories are not apart of this series time-line, but they do mention the characters in this series a little bit. The connected stories are here.

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Lise has been acting very strangely. And when she cancels her plans to go visit her family in Texas for Thanksgiving, Joshua decides to do something about it. However, when he gets there, he discovers her problems are right down his alley. Driven by his former Army Ranger and mercenary skills, he decides to take care of Lise’s stalker. But will they both be ready to face their passion for each other?

The plot is pretty much normal for a romantic suspense novel, but it doesn’t make this novel any less sweet. :) Even though the plot is kind of predictable, like most suspense novels, it had it’s own special spark.

One of the things that made the book enjoyable are the descriptions, events, and characters’ personalities all made this book much more enjoyable (and took it away from the norm a little bit). Another thing I enjoyed is some of the interactions between all of the characters in the book. I even laughed at some of the interactions, conversations, and thoughts. Some of it was definitely amusing to read.

The love/smut scenes were also enjoyable since the author did a pretty good job at describing them and other scenes that are in the book. One more interesting thing is that, it has condom scenes, which not many romance books (that I have read) mention putting on a condom.

Also, it had a nice blend of suspense and romance since it focuses on how the stalker brings their unresolved feelings out in the open. The ending is pretty good, but it was pretty much an average romance (and romantic suspense) ending.

This is the first book in this series; however, there are some connected stories. The connected stories are not apart of this series time-line, but they do mention the characters in this series a little bit. The connected stories are here.

Claire Sharpe has trouble trusting and relying on others, but after her life is threatened, she must learn how to rely on Brett Adams, an ex-mercenary, to protect her. Though, with this protection, something more might come from it…

Not a supernatural book, but that will change pretty soon. :)

This book is really good, and I can’t really review it without giving away some things in the book. So, I’ll just tell you to read it and be done with it.

There is nothing I really didn’t like about, but I like the book because 1) smut, 2) action without being to gory, 3) it’s interesting, and 4) I just like it because it appeals to me. ;)

Warning though, there are sexual themes and maybe themes that are not for sensitive people.

This is the last book in this series; however, there are some connected stories. The connected stories are not apart of this series time-line, but they do mention the characters in this series a little bit. The connected stories are here.

Josie McCall has never really wanted to be a solider, or mercenary for that matter, but she was raised as one by her father. After she leaves the mercenary world and her father’s mercenary school, she goes to school for a job in computers. However, now that someone blew up her dad’s mercenary school and her dad is missing, she goes back to her mercenary roots to find out who blew up the school and took her dad. And her dad’s new partner, Daniel Black Eagle, stays to protect her. However, there is just one little thing that might keep his mind off of his new mission — Josie. Will they be able to figure out everything before or after their passion ignites?

Lise Barton was an ordinary author, that is, until someone seems to be stalking her. But when that person escalates, she moves from Texas to Seattle. However, the threats start up again and are worse — this time the stalker threatens her family. After the threat, Lise cancels her Thanksgiving trip back to Texas, but someone visits her that she didn’t except to show up. Joshua Watt comes to Seattle to drag her back to Texas for Thanksgiving, but once he knows about someone stalking Lise, he is ready to protect her no matter what she feels about it. There’s just one thing — he has personal feelings for Lise, so how will he be able to work without thinking about having sex with her…?

Not a supernatural book, but that will change sooner of later. ;)

This book is really good, and I can’t really review it without giving away some things in the book. So, I’ll just tell you to read it and be done with it.

Warning though, there are sexual themes and maybe themes that are not for sensitive people like people who have been stalked before or something.
