4 fast paced stars!!
This book starts off with a bang, the two characters literally collide. I can’t believe that Penny was willing to take down such a big guy. Bravo young lady, bravo! If you like books with lots of alpha men, in camo, then this book is for you. If you like books with strong female characters not afraid to go after what they want, then this book is definitely for you.
Let’s start with Penny because if you have been following my blog at all you will realize I LOVE strong female characters. Penny goes to Honduras to locate her lost niece, who was taken by an evil drug dealer. I love how Penny’s character is so strong, she is walking the seedy side streets of town when a man comes up behind her. Does Penny cower in fear, hell no she starts to kick his ass. Penny gets dragged in to the Alpha security team’s headquarters because they think she is up to no good. She doesn’t expect to run into people she knows. When Alpha sets her up with Rafe to take down the drug lord things take an interesting turn. The chemistry is off the charts in this book, and I love how Penny doesn’t back down when Rafe goes all Alpha on her. Her father was in the military so she is so used to military men. I loved her comrodeary with the other Alpha’s how they kind of tuck her under their wing. Penny is one of the perfect examples of a strong heroine. She can keep up with the boys but still has feminine feelings.
Rafe is all cave man… swoon. Rafe was in foster care when he was younger moving from one home to the next. When he joins the military he finally finds family in his other soldiers. I can’t even imagine being in the same room as Rafe because he’s all alpha male, but a room full of all of them yikes the testosterone. At first he thinks Penny is a liability but after he sees her in action he realizes she could be an asset to the Alpha team. However once Rafe starts letting her in to his bed and then his heart will he be able to walk away since he knows it is what’s best for her. I loved how Rafe always tried to go Alpha on Penny and she wouldn’t let him. I also really enjoyed how every time he told her to stay somewhere she didn’t and you could tell he was exasperated and amused at the same time.
The only flaws I could see with the book is that they were together over the space of a couple months but because it was so fast paced if you didn’t catch the paragraphs where it mentioned the time table it almost felt insta- lovey. There were also a lot of steamy scenes, don’t get me wrong they were well written but I would’ve liked to have seen more of the planning and scheming that lead to decisions made by the team.
Even with those minor flaws I really enjoyed the book! It involved some kick butt characters and side characters. I can’t wait to see where the series goes, and which of these alpha males falls hard next!! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes strong heros and heroines!!
