Kindle Worlds – Omega Team
Delta Force Heroes
Aimee O’Brien has harbored a not-so-little crush on her school’s new first-grade teacher since the beginning of the year. Tall, muscled, with long hair and a beard, and a penchant for wearing silly ties to amuse his students…the man is too gorgeous for words. As the PE teacher, Aimee’s wardrobe consists of casual gym clothing not likely to catch anyone’s eye. So no one is more surprised than her when Tony makes his interest clear.
Tony Santoro’s time in the military directly influenced his new choice of career—and his choice in women. He’s looking for someone of substance, and Aimee has far more to offer than just her adorably disheveled look. He can’t wait to see what’s hiding under those sweatpants and tees—but he might have missed his chance. The very day he finally works up the nerve to ask Aimee out, is the day unspeakable violence explodes in the school.
Trapped in the gym, Aimee and Tony will have to work together to get out with their lives…and the lives of the dozens of students trapped with them.
In this story, Aimee and Tony deal with a threat that’s all too real in today’s society; the subject matter may be too sensitive for some readers.
I love the Delta Force series and while this book is only loosely related it has the same impact. These are troubled times in our country and unfortunately the subject of this book has happened more than once.
Both Aimee and Tony are ex-military. They both love their teaching jobs and she has had a crush on him since she met him. Tony on the other hand has one teacher throwing herself at him impervious to his non-interest.
Aimee rescues him by accident from an uncomfortable situation at lunchtime and in the process gets a date with him. Here is a favorite scene.
The Omega Team: Assisting Aimee (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Delta Force Heroes Book 99) (Kindle Locations 215-236). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.
When his class joins another for gym with Aimee they hear gunshots. A very tense situation and one that requires a clear head and fast action. I think this is when I started holding my breath.
I couldn’t put this book down, the waiting and the interactions will hold you entranced until the final page. The Omega Team and Ghost’s Delta team, joins with the local police to try to talk down the shooter. I did a bit of crying here. This was truly an intense story and the way the romance works its way in was perfect. I don’t know many authors who could have pulled this off as well.
Thank you, Susan.
