It’s hard to feel the romance when you’re being chased through the jungles of Columbia … but it won’t be for lack of trying! When an undercover CIA agent rescues a kidnapped ATF explosives expert, it’s a race against time as they try to stay one step ahead of the Colombian drug lord hot on their trail.
Separately, Harper Tambini and Rafe Silva are lethal… Together, they’re explosive.
ATF Special Agent Harper Tambini is kidnapped by a Colombian drug lord and forced to use her explosives knowledge to kill his competition before she can escape with the help of undercover CIA agent Rafe Silva.
As they make their way through the rivers, mountains, and jungles, their desire for each other detonates. But Harper reminds Rafe of his murdered fiancée and the shadow world he wants to leave.
Harper learned the hard way that men never stay, so now she doesn’t keep them around long enough to see if the sparks can light a fire that will last forever.
In their short time together, can they crystallize a relationship, or will it all blow up?
At first I have to compliment the author with the name of the book, Explosive Combination, rarely is there more fitting name for a book, on many different levels.
The action doesn't build up, it starts from the page one with a bang. From there the life and death situations continue through out the story, keeping the tension up, and interest on the events high.
After Harper is being captured by the drug lord, and put into a 'luxury prison', Harper and Rafe's instant, electric attraction takes hold of them. The pull for each other is stronger than the threat to her life, or him being outed as an agent. The events that follow are nothing short of classic spy movie, high end parties, cartels fighting with each other, dangerous escapes from the numerous villains through the water, air, and jungle.
The allure Harper and Rafe has for each other is captivating, and as they try to fight for their feelings for each other, by just 'scratching the itch' -- not falling for each other becomes a mission impossible when things get soft, tender. and caring. The pull for each other is instant, constant, and overpowering. Even the past disappointments, and future plans, can't hold them apart, as they explore the steamy, sensuous appeal they have for each other.
Everything happens in short period of a time, in just four explosive, tension ridden days, Harper and Rafe goes through lifetime of danger, tension, and feelings.
The story is very detailed in every aspect of the story, adding more depth and insight to the events, if you don't let all the details drown the red thread of the story.
