This was a great military special operations book. The best is the characters and the fact that I can see this going on for a while. First is Bobby Baker, the sweetheart who left for the service and in his absence Annabelle (Belle) is lost. She knows they have plans to marry when he is out so when she gets a devastating letter from Bobby’s mom she takes off. She is at her lowest point, well I was too. I mean a few weeks in, he send her a letter saying they are done. I wanted to go find his ass and beat him with a stick myself. Poor Belle is abused by her Dad, has no place to go and now nobody to depend on but her best friend Teagan. That is really how you know the authors are good. I mean if they can get me to wanna hurt Bobby, they did their job and now he has to work it to redeem himself. Does he? well read it!
It is one of those rough and tough groups. The unit is consisting of Jaxon the leader and a man I lust after! He has special powers and I think I want to take him for a ride. Then there is Declan and Riley, they play small roles, but each have mentions of what I know will be a fascinating story.
When Belle’s best friend Teagan comes back to town she is introduced in a very guarded way. I know that I smell mystery and a big defense mechanism from her. I cant wait to learn more. She is as hot as Belle. I loved it! A big sweet treat is when a woman does things better, faster, and hotter than a guy. Who can resist ? not me
What I wanted was a little of Bobby’s parents. I felt like they were not mentioned and there are events that I wanted to see them at. Now in the midst of the novel it gets really dark. There is a set-up, a sting, gun runners, human trafficking and a bad Mexican gang. So if you like this type of book I know you will love it like I did.
I was doing the happy dance when I saw that book 2 was due out in the spring. I will, in the mean time, keep my fingers crossed that everyone grabs this and prepares for book 2. Bring on Jaxon and Riley!
