Bad Boys Undercover # 2

Releasing May 26, 2015
After a grueling assignment with the black ops force known as the Alliance, Weston Brown is craving downtime. Instead, he's pulled into his deadliest operation, in the one place he never wanted to see again. No-nonsense and so damn hot, Lexi Turner lied to get him to her mountain clinic in Pakistan. But the threat is terrifyingly real.
Lexi has been asking too many questions, drawing the wrong kind of attention. As soon as she lays eyes on West, she can tell he's quiet—yet tough—and has a rescue complex which will come in handy for going up against the world's most ruthless gunrunners.
Cut off from the rest of the Alliance, Lexi and West navigate the brutal terrain and a primal sexual attraction. Sticking around has never been West's way, but now he'll use every resource to keep Lexi by his side, safe from a killer who leaves no loose ends behind.
The story starts off with breathless, intense action, and that holds through the book.
I absolutely loved this story, and a fair warning: it might keep you up late at night, because it is nearly impossible to put down, once you start to read it!
West is such a perfect hero, he has the nickname 'machine', since it seems he doesn't have any emotions. But he has to put them away, while on a job, so he can focus and do what is expected from him. He is solid, caring, loyal, and protective towards those he cares. He is a team player, and believes in what he does. And when he falls, he falls so hard.
Lexi is strong, fearless, stubborn, with lots of sass, and she captures West's attention from the first sight. There's so much delightful humor in this story, and I enjoyed West and Lexi's interaction immensely. Yes, they are both stubborn to the fault, they argue and banter, and at times I wanted to shake Lexi and say 'his professional, listen to him!' But when she learns to trust him, she does listen to him when it counts. Her need to protect this fearless soldier, is endearing. The passion between them is as fierce as the action in the story. Their honesty and candor with each other is refreshing.
The Alliance team work is as seamless as always. The loyalty to the team, focus on the mission, and care they show to each other is admirable. They all are surprised, yet pleased, when West falls for Lexi, and are willing to stand up for them, and make it possible for them to have a relationship.
If you love stories with strong, passionate characters, fierce, cutthroat action, mixed with humor that might make you laugh out loud at unexpected moments, Falling Hard is all that, and then some!
