A SEXY STRANGER
Flirting with danger is reporter Grace Grainger’s modus operandi. But she’s learned the hard way not to grow attached to the soldiers she’s embedded with in Afghanistan. To escape from her pain and loneliness, she fantasizes about the hot night she spent with a gorgeous stranger three years before in D.C. Grace never thought she’d see him again—let alone need him to rescue her . . .
AN EXPLOSIVE NIGHT
Air Force Master Sergeant Josh Travers knows journalists are nothing but trouble. So when he has to risk his team’s lives to save some reporter who’s been separated from her patrol, he’s not happy—until he recognizes her stunning eyes and delicious curves. Josh has never wanted a woman like he wants Grace. He needs her—even in an Afghan cave with a sandstorm and enemy troops closing in. This might be the end for both of them—or one hell of a beginning.
I enjoyed this novella immensely. It is filled with fast paced, nail biting military action, danger, thrill, and bittersweet, steamy romance.
All the characters were easy to like, their emotions and thoughts were clearly explained, and I could picture the Afghanistan mountains, the village, the rescue in my mind. The military life, lingo, and the difficulties of relationships while deployed sounded real and accurate.
The chemistry between Josh and Grace is instant, hot, and raw. The memories of their first meeting three years ago playing in their minds, the pull for each other is strong, despite all reasons not to surrender to it.
The author's voice was clear, energetic, and the story took hold of me from the page one. It is a novella, so I read it at once, just couldn't put it down until the end. I'm looking forward to the next installment in the series, that comes out the beginning of October. Four big spoons & teaspoon for this book one of the Alpha Ops!
