He was a man on a mission, one that included a beautiful woman and a little girl he'd die defending...
What a serious case of mistaken identity. Ashton Fitzgerald is no unassuming handyman but a highly trained sharpshooter intent on protecting Summer Worrall and her baby daughter.
The Omega SWAT member has a debt to pay and he isn't about to let Summer out of his sights. For someone else has set their own sights on the lovely widow.
Her unexpected relationship with Ashton has put Summer and her child straight into a madman's line of fire. Suddenly a mission to make amends becomes Ashton's quest to defend this little family with his very life.
Omega Sector: Under Siege
They say don't judge the book by its cover, but OH MY GOODNESS, if this is not the best cover ever! And the book does deliver what the cover promises. Daddy Defender is filled with riveting, knuckle-biting suspense and action intertwined with adorable, sweet, and swoon-worthy scenes.
Ashton Fitzgerald is fun, kind, protective, and good with his hands. His growing feelings towards Summer Worrall and her cute little daughter are a well-known secret within Omega. Yet the convoluted history between Ashton's job and Summer's past keeps him from being open and honest with her, keeping the walls in place between them and their feelings towards each other hidden. Because Ashton has brought Summer's feelings to the surface again, emotions that have been deeply buried since her husband was killed.
The connection and chemistry between Ashton and Summer are obvious and palpable, as is the connection Ashton has to Summer's daughter. These three form an inseparable unit, that nothing can destroy, no matter how much they try.
The whole cast of characters are charming, likable, and attractive, the kind of people you want to hang out with, to get to know better. I found them entertaining and enjoyable, wishing there would have been a bit more insight to Ashton and Summer's personalities, as they were fumbling with their emotions and future possibilities. Maybe I just couldn't get enough of them...
The continues threat and deadly force attacks towards the Omega team, Ashton, and Summer keeps the strain and stress high, gripping the attention and escalating the terror and angst. It is obvious the culprits do not care if there is collateral damage, as long as they manage to cripple the Omega, and ultimately destroy it because revenge is the game they like to play.
Even though the story is brought to a satisfying conclusion, there is a sort of a cliffhanger, as the mastermind behind the desire to end the existence of Omega Sector is still at large, and the story will - apparently - continue through the series.
A mesmerizing and sharp story with vivid images, dynamic characters, and powerful suspense and action combined with dreamy, lovely, and delectable romance and the cutest little girl with her hero in the middle of the battle...
