My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second book in the spin off HOT SEAL Team series and as always, Harris delivers an action packed read. I like where the series is going (I know it's early days), but I feel like the parallels with multiple HOT teams that are in play in the original HOT Series are reflected in the spin off and it makes sense to explore those other teams.
We open with our hero & heroine at a BBQ with some of the HOT operators and their families. Christina Girard Scott (sister of Matt Girard the hero from the first book), is nursing a broken heart after her husband is caught cheating, she's lost confidence in herself and when she sees Remy Marchand she wants one night that will make her forget. Needless to say, there is one hot night in D.C and then she disappears from Remy's life. Fast forward and the action returns us to Qu'rim, where Christina has gone to broker an oil deal. The enemy are closing in a Remy is tasked with getting her to safety. There are sparks flying when they finally come face to face again.
One of the things I like about Remy is that he's an alpha but he's not a douchecanoe. A lot of the time alpha heroes are written the opposite way. So it's refreshing to see. And I seriously can't go past a boy with an accent, I could listen to that for hours. I liked that Christina could take care of herself, but she knew when to ask from help. I enjoyed the H&H opening up to each other, they're both dealing with damage from their past. And there are some sweet moments when they finally trust each other with their secrets and their hearts, (corny I know, but true!).
Probably the only thing I didn't enjoy was the story line with Ben, Christina's ex. I can't quite put my finger on why, I need to reread and think a little more on that.
Over all, this was ticking all the boxes. A likable Hero, a couple with hotter than hot chemistry. We got to revisit with Matt and Evie, which I always love doing with characters in ongoing series. I love the way Harris writes the banter between her male characters. A cracking read as always and another great installment in the HOT universe. I would definitely recommend reading this series. And as always - you don't have to read in series order, but why would you want to skip the hotboys.
Until next time, happy reading :)
