Cool under pressure… Until now.
Hostile Operations Team sniper Jack “Hawk” Hunter is cool, methodical, and utterly lethal. Nothing rattles Jack’s calm. But that was before he learned he fathered a child three years ago—a child who has just been kidnapped.
Gina Domenico is a superstar, a pop sensation with a string of hit records. But deep inside, she’s still the lonely girl she’s always been. When Jack saved her from an arms dealer, they spent three unforgettable days together waiting for rescue—and Gina fell hard for the sexy soldier before he walked away forever.
But now she needs his help and she’ll do anything to get it. Though Jack can never forgive Gina for keeping his child from him, he’ll do everything in his power—and HOT’s—to bring their son home safely.
Nothing is what it seems, however, and their fates hang in the balance as someone else pulls the strings…and brings them ever closer to an explosive confrontation that could either save their son—or cost them everything.
This story is all about second chances, forgiveness, choices, mixed with lots of actions and surprises in the plot.
Three years ago, when Gina and Jack met for the first time, Jack was tortured with grief and sorrow for the death of his pregnant wife. Gina and Jack shared 3 memorable days hiding in a cave, waiting for rescue, and sharing a bit more than life stories. Hence comes Eli.
Now they meet again, and again it is life and death situation. Because of Eli, and the attraction they still feel for each other, they try to build a new relationship, but it is on the foundation of resentment, withhold information, misunderstandings, and insecurities. In already difficult situation because of the kidnapping, the stress, pressure, and tension is high. Those are the factors I claim made both Gina and Jack act at times rather catty, petty, and little bit like spoilt brats. They have a long road to travel for a balanced, loving, trusting relationship. And the constant threat and menace to their lives speeds their way to open their hearts and minds for each other.
As always, the H.O.T. brotherhood is exemplary, with the 'all for one' attitude.
And the action, suspense, thriller is explosive with twists and turns, surprises, that keeps the reader on the edge.
I've said this before, but excellent series, highly recommended ~ four spoons!
