A rebel on the run…
Victoria Royal is a traitor. Or so the U.S. government believes. Victoria was once a promising sniper in the Army, but now she’s gone rogue—worse, she’s just landed in the middle of a Hostile Operations Team mission in the desert and blasted it all to hell.
Nick “Brandy” Brandon doesn’t expect to run into Victoria when he’s bugging out from a mission gone wrong. It’s been more than three years since she disappeared from the sniper course they were in together, and he’s finally stopped thinking about her killer curves and smart mouth.
But now she’s back—and she’s far more dangerous than Nick ever believed possible… Is she really a traitor? Or is there something more at stake? He has to decide fast—because time’s running out and too many lives hang in the balance…
Amazing how the H.O.T. series just gets better with each book! I absolutely loved this story of Nick and Victoria, it was full of military type action, suspense, and HOT romance. It is intense, and pulled me right from the first page, and kept the interest through the rest of the story.
Nick and Victoria's ribbing each other is fun and electric. Them two together are steamy hot, but at the same time, they have a sweet friendship, innocence and protective tenderness between them, that is just adorable, made me sigh so many times. It is heart wrenching, delicate, and delightful.
The action is exiting. The tension and fear is palpable, and I found the sniper's routines before the shot interesting. Nick and Victoria's mission in the desert was ardent, and the trust, the brotherhood between the H.O.T. members is touching.
Fierce action, intense suspense, and just adorable, love story all in one book ~ Five spoons with high recommendations!
