Navy SEAL Jake Heath has his eyes on Alexa Mays. The FBI Agent is whip smart and hot as hell, but she won’t give him the time of day. So, when she calls him out of blue, he thinks his luck has changed.
But instead of meeting up for a romantic dinner, Alexa needs Jake for a very different reason. Her counterterrorism team is hot on the heels of the extremist that Jake’s task force has been tracking for months, and now he’s on American soil. The only way she can take him down is with Jake’s help.
Alexa knows Jake is tough and relentless...and that the chemistry between them is electric. Although she’s risking her heart—and maybe even her career—by bringing him onto the mission, she doesn’t have another choice. Together, they’re an unstoppable and powerful team.
As the hours tick by and a lethal enemy gets closer to launching an unimaginable attack, Alexa and Jake need to fight fire with fire before the clock runs out. The only question is: will their own flames get in the way?
An energetic story, filled with an intense and intriguing investigation and vigorous, charming characters.
I absolutely adored Jake Heath and Alexa Mays, I loved everything about them. The chemistry between them, the connection they had both professionally and personally, the way their personalities complimented each other, the equality between them, their ability to kick ass and get things done.
The story was filled with high energy when it came to catching the criminals, and sort of sweet fragility when it came to the attraction between Jake and Alexa. I liked how the developing relationship was played off, how the author gave them a fair chance yet kept it real, kept it from going to unrealistically too far with the developing emotions.
An entertaining and potent tale, a quick read and that had just enough depth in it to hold my interest.
