Review Spring Blog - Copy

At the end of Kidnapped By Her Husbands, a very pregnant Mel has woken up alone after her surgery. Her husbands have been taken by, of all people, her mother. Now she has no choice but to get her memory back, but she has to do it before she confronts her mother. To do this she needs her sixth husband’s help. He is the missing part of her heart he is also the only one who knows why she left her ship Artemis to begin with.

Cooper is a virtual prisoner of his family. A prince, he has been watched constantly since Melissa was taken from the facility. The other husbands don’t trust him, and now Mel needs him to get away and meet her. They need a plan to get her memory back and the rest of her husbands too.

With Cooper’s help she meets up with her Aunt Jayne, her father’s sister and one who can fill in some of the holes in her memories at least until she can get her own back. They also decided on a place for her to get her memory back before going to the Bridge to confront her mother. This is a favorite scene.
“I’m getting in the machine and when I wake up I’m going to know what scared me enough to run. You knew my guys were on The Bridge. You must have people there who still communicate with you.”

She raised a dark eyebrow. “I do. They don’t like what’s going on. Not enough to uprise on Rita, but enough to talk to me.”

“Would they be willing to help me?”

Jayne moved closer to the screen. “In what capacity?”

“I don’t know what decisions I made before but I know what I want now. The guys, all six of them, safe. My daughter protected. I think my father is the one to do that. I think that’s what you want, too. A way to get to your brother. Am I right?”

She did me the courtesy of not pretending I wasn’t right. “Yes.”

“Get yourself together, bring whoever of your staff wants to go, too. Come to the Artemis. We’re hidden behind one of Ochoa’s outlier moons. When I wake up after the machine, I’m not going to be me anymore, or not exactly as I am now. You need to have already put this in motion so I can’t call it off. Be here, ready to put a gun to my head to tell you where my father is.”

Jayne’s eyes were huge. “You’re remarkably smart.”

“I’ve been watching news reports on the vid screen. Why does The Bridge keep popping into the area and then vanishing again? What’s happening with it?”

She shook her head. I’d finally asked her a question she couldn’t answer right off the bat. “Clearly, it’s a technical problem. They don’t really know why. My best guess would be your Wesley had something to do with it before they knocked him out.”

Her words stopped my heart for a second. “Knocked him out?”

“They’re all in cryogenic sleep now. Turned out the five of them on The Bridge were more than Rita was prepared to deal with. Dead guards, escape attempts, systems breaking. She’s getting ready to be all over the Nomad airwaves offering money for you now. Artemis won’t stay hidden forever.”

Focus made my back stiffen. “Saving them and my daughter are my first priorities. This baby is coming soon whether we are ready or not. Cooper won’t like you here ready to threaten me when I wake up. Be prepared for his resistance. There’s a play I have to make for him, too. I’d rather not give my mother nuclear bombs, and that means I’m going to have to speak to my father. Presumably, when I wake up, I’ll know how to do that. The guys won’t want me sacrificing myself and I’m nobody’s martyr. Please believe I’ll do what I have to do.”

“For the first time in your life, Melissa, I do.”

I disconnected the communication and clicked my wrist again. “Cooper,” I knew he’d be able to hear me even if he couldn’t answer. “I’ve got something to do on Ochoa. I’ll be at the memory retrieval machine in three hours. Have it done by then.”

He might have answered me except I cut off communication. If Cooper wasn’t going to like my aunt showing up to help me complete my plan, he was going to dislike what I needed to do next even more. I’d made a lot of mistakes. Huge ones. Big, horrible decisions, some I couldn’t undo. One of them was down on the surface.

She could be saved.
Royce, Rebecca. Rescued By Their Wife (Wings of Artemis Book 2) (Kindle Locations 484-510). Liquid Silver Publishing.

There are a lot of twists and turns in this one. Every time I thought okay, it’s gonna be okay now, well it wasn’t. I loved every single second of this read. From getting to know Cooper, to meeting his sister, to Mel’s Aunt and her witchy mother. Oh and all those sexy as hell husbands who turn the heat up to high!

Alone in prison.

No recollection of the past.

A baby growing inside her.

In a futuristic world where women are scarce and only the wealthy can afford a wife, Melissa Alexander is trapped in a prison rehabilitation center with no memory of who she is. The unborn child growing inside her is all that keeps them from making her pay for the sins she’s committed–sins she cannot recall. But when five sexy strangers claiming to be her husbands kidnap her and bring her to safety, Melissa fears she can’t trust them. All she can remember is what she was taught under the prison’s watchful, vengeful eye: to hate them. But how can she hate–or love–what she can’t remember?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I couldn’t imagine how I would feel if my memory was erased. Just know that would probably cause me not to trust anything or anyone. A wonderful form of brainwashing. Erase, re-teach the way you want the person to act. Just plain scary, even more scary is their photos were being put up in an auction type setting to be bid on.

In a twist of fate, Melissa’s husbands saw her on that site and rescued her. The problem is she doesn’t know who they are, but when she touches one of them they have a definite connection. As they go on a mission as the rebel faction they are, this new to them Melissa inadvertently puts them all in danger. Confronted by Nolan a lot of his pent up emotions take hold. This is one of my favorite scenes as Melisa acknowledges that these men are indeed her husbands.

“If that’s what you want, that’s what’ll happen.”

“Nolan…” Geoff grabbed his arm. “She doesn’t know, okay? You can’t take it the way you are, brother. You have to treat her like a stranger. She doesn’t know you.”

“I get what you’re saying.” His voice sounded calm and, in some ways, hearing him speak in a rational way made it worse than when he’d been yelling. I went cold. All I’d said was the truth. Why did it make me want to curl into a ball and disappear? “I hear what you’re all saying. Whatever happened, she’s still Melissa. She talks with her voice, looks through her eyes. And she’s done with me. So be it.”

He walked from the room, spine stiff and head high. No one moved. I wasn’t even sure I breathed. What had I said, exactly, to get that response?

I’d really had enough of this day. I was apparently a rebel princess—whatever that meant—and I couldn’t pull off denial any longer. Nolan’s strong reaction to me, as though he really knew me, and the way everything I said was so completely abhorrent to him, solidified what I should have figured out a lot sooner.

Enough was enough. I needed answers.

“Okay. So I’m obviously your wife, right?”

Four sets of gazes plowed into me, but no one spoke.

“I just think it’s stupid not to say it. I’m exhausted. Good night.”
Kidnapped By Her Husbands (Wings of Artemis Book 1) (Kindle Locations 1407-1418). Liquid Silver Books. Kindle Edition.

As she realizes her dreams are really her memories, and they visit places on the way to the Bridge where they have the machine to restore her memories, she finds she likes who she is now with her husbands, and really doesn’t want the other Melissa back.

Things are never simple no matter who or what you are. This story is a journey, a very hot and sexy get to know you all again journey.

I can’t wait to read Book 2.

Colt Hannigan returns to the Black Hills Wolves Pack a changed and determined wolf. Thrown out after he stood against the former Alpha, he has no love for Drew Tao, the current Alpha. Colt plans to challenge Drew for leadership of the pack—until he lays eyes on Tasha, the woman he thought dead but whom he never forgot.

Permanently scarred after stepping between Colt and the former Alpha of the pack, Tasha survived for years by keeping her head down. Colt’s return is everything she’s desired, but she wants to live in a calm world surrounded by love, not another battle for dominance, which could destroy the newly-healed pack.

Can Tasha convince Colt to find peace in her arms? Will the Black Hills Wolves pack survive outside attacks if they cannot mend the internal injuries of the past?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Any of you who have been reading these books, but missed a few like I did, will appreciate this one more than ever.I now thoroughly understand where Colt got his anger and arrogance from. He really does storm right in with bad intentions and ends up pretty much in the same state as he did when he challenged Magnum. Only difference is he wakes up in the same place, not somewhere far away.

One of my favorite scenes is that confrontation with Drew, Gee and Ryker.

The son of a bitch had the gall to grin at him. What did Drew find amusing about this? He was about to be challenged, called out, and killed. Colt would do what he hadn’t been strong enough to do when Magnum had been in charge— take over the pack and finally lead them out of the Tao darkness.

“Drew Tao,” Colt had to speak the words correctly so Ryker and the others couldn’t interfere.

His cousin shook his head, looking over the bar to Gee who had stayed quiet the whole time. Colt had never been able to get a real read on the Were-bear, who played his cards close to his chest.

“Don’t kill him. I think he has guts. I want him around. At least for now.”

“What?” Colt shook his head. This wasn’t how things were done. He’d come to make a challenge. Drew needed to listen. “Drew Tao, I….”

Gee stepped out from behind the bar. If the Bear thought to throw him out again as he’d done ten years earlier, he could go ahead and try. If he landed on the street, Colt would shout his challenge from there. One way or the other, he would fight Drew for control of the pack. Hell would freeze over before he’d follow his cousin’s lead.

Drew walked toward him, but when he would have faced him, he headed for the exit instead. Was he cowardly? Is that why he left?

Colt had thought his cousin would be many things, but afraid hadn’t been one of them. Anger warred with frustration, and he growled, feeling his teeth elongate in his mouth. Colt had been waiting for this fight since the day Drew had taken off for who knew where and left them all to suffer at the hands of Magnum.

“Drew—

A whack to his head brought him up short. What the hell? Several seconds passed before he realized Gee stood behind him, holding a baseball bat. Stars passed in front of his eyes while Gee moved in front of him.

“Pup. Pass out. I don’t want to hit you again.”

“I’m not a pup anymore.” Why was it so hard to talk? The whole world went black.
When Hell Freezes (Black Hills Wolves Book 6) (Kindle Locations 62-78). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.

What ensues is frustrating confrontations with Drew, lively exchanges with Tasha, and dealing with some pack security issues.  A wonderfully quick read with lots of all the good stuff.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

What a perfect beginning to a new series!

When Drew gets the text that his father is dying he didn’t know exactly what he felt. He certainly wasn’t sad, but he knew he had to go home. Back to the Black Hills, Los Lobos, his pack and his mate. Alpha Challenge wasn’t really on his mind at least not at first.

Betty, or B as Drew calls her has been trying to keep what is left of the pack together. She works hard to help those she can while being undermined by Magnum, her Alpha. No longer pining for her mate but mad as hell at him.

A favorite scene is when Betty sees Drew right after he sees the ruin of the town.

“Hi, B.” He almost choked on his words. “Long time no see.”

“Don’t call me B. You don’t get to use that name anymore. You…. You…. You….”

She must not have come up with what she wanted to say because she launched herself into the air without finishing. Shifting midway, she took him to the ground in her full-on black wolf form.

Betty tore at his clothes, shredding his shirt in mere seconds. “Okay.” He called out to her, hoping she’d hear him through the rage he could smell coming off her body.

Drew raised his hands to cover his face. If she wanted to kill him, he supposed she would be entitled to do so. But she stopped and pulled off, darting to the side before she put herself back in her human form.

“I don’t know what you thought coming back here would accomplish.” Her voice hitched, and it nearly killed him. “You should go back wherever you’ve been. Los Lobos and the wolf pack don’t need you, Drew. I don’t need you. Go, run away again. We can all pretend you never came back at all.”

Her words tore at his insides, but he ignored the pain. She’d launched an attack right at him, and the flare in her eyes hadn’t changed. Oh, yes. B was totally pissed at him and would remain that way for a good long while.

“B.” He held up his hands to stop her from interrupting. “I’m sorry, Betty. Elizabeth. Whatever you want. Ms. Holden. We have a lot to talk about. You deserve answers, and I wish I could adequately give you the ones you want. You don’t have to tell me anything. But if you would, could you at least let me know what happened here. Why did this place fall apart?”

She laughed, a cold sound he’d never heard her make before. He tried to ignore the way it made his stomach clench. There were lots of things about her he didn’t know. He’d known what would happen when he’d chosen to go. He had to live with the consequences.

“Everyone is gone, Drew. Anyone who could keep this place together has left, driven out by Magnum’s antics and destruction. Your father, his cronies who never cared in the least about keeping anything nice or cherished, remained. Gee has done his best. Ryker would protect everyone, but he stays in his place in the woods to keep your father from ordering him to do horrible things. His blood oath as pack Enforcer collared him. And then the elderly and the sick. I’ve been trying. But I can’t possibly do it. I can’t paint buildings and wipe brows at the same time.” She threw her hands in the air. “That’s what happens when the people who should be here aren’t here.”

He stood up. Enough. “Where is my father, B?”

Drew had done what he promised. He’d left, stayed away. His father hadn’t lived up to his end of the bargain. For the first time in years, Drew believed he was just the werewolf to bring him to justice.

“What difference does it make? You’ve never been able to do anything about him.”

His woman didn’t believe in him anymore. He couldn’t blame her. But maybe he could do something to help. “Where is he?”
Wolf’s Return (Black Hills Wolves Book 1) (Kindle Locations 202-227). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Trying to keep from her mate was impossible and the need to be with each other overwhelmed them both. However after the initial incredibly hot coming together, reason comes through and they avoid each other. Drew will have nothing or all from B, and she must make her decision.

This book will tear at your heartstrings as Drew takes on the challenge of rebuilding Los Lobos and his relationship with his mate.

5 Contented Purrs for Rebecca, but a hiss for editing on this one.

Editing wise there were words that should have been others. For example message instead of massage appeared more than once.

Rachel has had so many ups and downs in this series. There is also the problem of what was real and what was not. A very unsettling reality.

In this final episode, Icahn holds the women and children hostage to get Rachel. She needs the wolves cooperation to take him down or all will be for naught. So she makes the Alpha Andon a deal one he wouldn’t refuse. This was a difficult yet page turning read, with many twists and turns.

So with love, courage and strength this story winds to it’s close. Thank you Rebecca for the journey.

Winter Blog Review

If you haven’t read the first 2 books go do that now, I added the links to buy them below. It really enhances your reading experience.

Drew is still in a coma and the bullets aren’t working their way out as was hoped. With the discussion of surgery, Betty needs family around. All this stress can’t be good for her unborn child. She needs to take care of herself better.

Magnolia (Mags) is Betty’s sister and she has a secret, she is in love with a human mystery writer Clayton Davies. She meets him every day at the Perkulator for coffee even though she doesn’t like coffee.  Since he’s human she thinks its impossible to have him, even though he is her mate.  When they share a first kiss she runs from him to save him, and ends up going to Los Lobos with her father to be with Betty. Her pregnant sister needs the soothing calmness of her omega wolf while she is under so much stress.

Nobody, least of all Mags, expected Clayton to follow her to Los Lobos. When he does Mags admits she is his mate to Ryker to keep him safe.  Right after this little revelation is one of my favorite scenes.

“Can you shift?”

Her eyebrows shot up. “Right now?”

“Unless you have something else to do.” Like an appointment he didn’t know about.

She stepped back dropping his hand. “It may freak you out.”

“I’ve seen a lot of really bad things in  my life. There’s a reason I was a cop for only five years. I decided if I was going to run around in the muck of the world, it might as well be from my own imagination. Your carrying the soul of a creature I admire for it’s loyalty? Not bothering me.”

A tear slipped from her eye, and he reached out to bat it away. His spine stiffened. Mags should never, ever cry.

They didn’t expect Ryker to accept his help with their investigation either. Clay had been a police detective and can look at the murders from a different angle. Being human and mated to a wolf he can also be bait.

This book is different in that we have a female wolf mating a human and the murderer speaks to us, sort of. Telling us he is smarter than everyone, and also telling us what he is planning next.

LOVE the romance, LOVE the build up, and OMG the ending! Can’t wait to read the next one. See below for the links to the other two so you can catch up!

Elite Ghosts

For more than two years they’ve been ghosts. Nothing but names on empty tombstones. Men and women forced to fade into the background after being pulled from the rubble. Dead Marines saved from a fate worse than death, but ordered to stand down while their lives disappeared all around them.

Some knew it could happen if a mission exploded. Double crossed by more than just Red Wolf. But now is their time to be reborn from the flames of a Phoenix. No longer imprisoned in the shadows. A half-life between them and their future. To make things right coming back to life is their only option.

When the ghosts removed their masks, I think my heart stopped for a moment. When Copper locked eyes with HIM, Tungsten/Brad, I thought my heart would break. Gabriel and Sachi are so good together, I couldn’t grasp the possibility they could end because of Brad. That he had been there all along with the others, watching and protecting and never said a word. Even Merc/John didn’t trust Tungsten/Brad, and they had been friends.

Oddly enough I trusted that something good would come out of this difficult situation.

As the story unfolds with Sachi, Gabriel and Brad in an isolated cabin in Montana, and John keeping watch outside. Deep cover to protect them from someone looking diligently for Brad and possibly Sachi.

But before they can pursue a mission, Sachi either has to choose or they need another plan. This is part of one of my favorite conversations with John and Sachi while they were on a run.

“I don’t want to choose between them. She didn’t and she wouldn’t. In some ways, she’d made her choice. Gabriel allowed Brad to be a part of them, Gabriel let him in, and she embraced the choice because Gabriel saw what she needed. If she had to choose…

“I suppose this means I have to keep his sorry ass alive.” John shook his head at her. “Two men?”

“I’m a demanding woman, what can I say?”

“Greedy bitch.” But he said with a hint of a smile. “Fine. I’ll keep the jackass alive. But one fucking step out of line…”

Closing the distance between them, she gave him a hug. “Yeah, yeah. They’ll never see you coming.”

 The question is can the men share her long term? Can she accept them both for forever?

What ensues is a sizzling hot relationship, followed by a yet another difficult mission. I couldn’t stop reading, I had to know what would happen next.

Zinc’s Heart

by Rebecca Royce

Fall Tree Blog - small blurb

Zinc has nothing to prove–and everything to lose.

Fall Tree Blog - small review

Zinc wanted one thing from Steele when he took off his mask, the answer to a question. The question – Why did you leave me behind? Like all the other Zinc lost much when he became a Ghost. Only he didn’t have the years of freedom the others had in between.

What happens when it wasn’t answered immediately was painful for both of them. Steele with a broken face literally, that required surgery and Zinc with no relief from the physical and emotional pain.

This book takes off quickly and Zinc’s mission is to get Steele’s sister Sarah out of the clutches of one of Red Wolf’s minions. Walter David. David is, among other things, a stop on the human trafficking pathway.

Sarah a CIA agent was taken for asking the wrong kind of questions about her brother Steele and Zinc’s deaths. Questions that led her to Red Wolf.

Zinc had always been attracted to Sarah, but she was off limits because of being his best friends sister. Now she was being held a sexual captive. His mission is to get her out. A mission that rapidly goes to hell.

Forced to bail on the plane after discovering Titanium’s pilot was working with Red Wolf. Then not able to return to headquarters because of possible infiltration. Sarah and Zinc/Zach are on the run until it’s safe to go in.

Zinc has migraines and issues with wrong words after one due to his healing brain. A favorite passage is from the first stop on their journey.

“Do you know what I meant although I said the wrong thing? Probably if I try to self correct over the next few minutes I will continue to misspeak. So, I’m hoping you know what I…”

As an answer, she placed the keycard in his outstretched hand. “Don’t worry, I speak Zach.”

He laughed at her response, the reaction catching him by surprise. “Then you’d be the only one. I’m not sure I speak me anymore.”

Sarah has always fantasized about Zach, she figured she wasn’t his type.  She couldn’t have been more wrong.  These guys fall hard and fast, Zach is no exception.

The action is intense and the sex is hotter than hot. And all that’s before her brother finds out.

Lithium’s Rescue

by Sabrina York

Fall Tree Blog - small blurb

He will save her…unless she saves him first.

Fall Tree Blog - small review

Marilyn is an analyst for a high tech company with government contracts. When she discovers her boss is committing treason, she contacts an old family friend.

When he fails to show, she learns how far reaching her boss’ arm really is. He was watching and listening to her in her home and is sending someone to collect her.

Lithium is sent to collect an informant, and get her safely to headquarters. However, her boss has everyone one of his employees wired and tracked with some very high tech gadgets.

A favorite passage is a conversation they have while traveling to an airstrip.

“Aside from all that, I suspect you’re a perv.” This, she said in a soft, teasing tone.

“I’m not a perv.”

“You made me strip.”

“You were covered with trackers.”

“You watched.”

“I needed to make sure we got them all.”

“”Do you suppose there was one up my ass?”

“Do you want me to check?”

That shut her up. It was a long while before she said, “You rubbed your erection against me.”

“I did not.” His neck heated.

“You did too. Back there in the stairwell. I felt it.”

Prickles danced on his spine. “I was not rubbing my erection against you. I was trying to make you shut up.”

“Is that how you make a woman shut up? A coo. “Rub your cock against her?”

“The idea has merit.” Oh yeah. He could visualize just the thing. The perfect way to make her shut up. Probably not a good idea while he was driving.

I love Marilyn, so much spunk, and Lithium just falls into her traps. Good thing she’s not a bad guy.  Lots of heat in more ways than one. I thoroughly enjoyed this read.

Thallium’s Submission

by Anna Alexander

Fall Tree Blog - small blurb
From now on the only orders he will follow are hers.

Fall Tree Blog - small review

A witness against a gang helping Red Wolf by providing a safe transport from Dallas to Mexico, is due to testify, against her ex-husband, the leader of the gang. Being under protective custody, in a safe house with two Texas marshals isn’t enough. There is a contract out on her and they won’t stop looking until the threat to their passageway is eliminated.This book explodes with action practically from the first page.  The bad guys show up at the same time as the Elite crew and getting Athena out safe becomes difficult.

I mean really who do you trust when everyone around you is shooting?

After a second location is compromised, Thallium takes off with Athena and disposes of all tracking devices even his own. His only thoughts to keep her safe and off the grid until the trial. The man has some pretty cool secrets.

One of my favorite scenes is their first morning together and it begins to show Thallium’s deep need to take care of her in other ways than just protection.

“Don’t get up on my account. I can take care of myself. Besides you need rest too.”

“I want to take care of you. Why don’t you go freshen up while I start b-breakfast?

I need to do a thorough check of  our provisions anyway. Make sure we have everything we need for the next two weeks. I bought you some clothes, but…”

“But what?”

He glanced away as a bit of pink hit his cheeks. “I like the way you look wearing my t-shirt.”

Oh, yeah. She was going to enjoy their time in captivity.

“I’ll keep that in mind,” she said, and picked up the bag he had placed by the front door. “I won’t be long.”

From here on it gets really interesting. I loved the build of this relationship. It’s sweet and it’s hot and you almost forget for a moment there is danger.

Nickel’s Wounds

by Saranna DeWylde

Fall Tree Blog - small blurb

Hell hath no fury like a Marine who’s lost her way. Beauty was once her currency, but for a woman who can’t feel anything but agony, she has nothing left. Except the vengeance that could destroy the one man whose love could teach her how to save herself.

Fall Tree Blog - small review

Nickel’s wounds are much deeper than the external ones and not all are from her service. Her need for revenge is intense and in this offering of the series we see the characters as who they once were as well as who they are today.This passage is from Marcus’ thoughts after giving Katarina a massage to help her pain. It really brings his devotion to her and her trust in him to the forefront.

When not on a mission, he preferred to sleep naked, but he changed in to a pair of boxer briefs and slid in to the bed.

She sighed in  her sleep and turned into him, blanket wrapped tightly around herself.

They’d slept together on missions, had huddled together for warmth and safety.

But this was the first time she’d fallen asleep after her massage, in his bed, and had asked him to stay with her.

He stared out into the darkness for a long time before he slept. As close as he was to her at the moment, within a breath of touch, he’d never felt farther away.

Marcus/Tin has to go back to his roots as a gang member to secure an invitation to  Fedir Yukodvich’s Clubhouse . To attend a gathering of heavy hitters in human trafficking buying and selling. The problem, he has to go  in with Nickel/Katarina and is afraid the mission will throw them both into a place from which they will never recover.

Katarina knows this mission can change the two of them forever, but she never imagined the depth of those changes. She gets pain at touch but still uses her body in missions by turning herself off, her way of surviving. Only Marcus can touch her without that pain most times, and only because of their deep, trusting, friendship.

This book had me crying and holding my breath a good deal of the time.  Very emotional and very tense read. I loved and felt every single word.

Titanium’s Sacrifice

by Jennifer Kacey

Fall Tree Blog - small blurb

Titanium. Warbucks. Commander. Brother. He is all of those things. And none of them. Giving up everything to save the men and women under his command was easy until it comes to one…last…sacrifice

Fall Tree Blog - small review

Titanium’s story is perhaps the most emotional of all of the previous. In this one we learn why Titanium is so invested in bringing down Red Wolf, why he has no choice. It caused my heart to ache as I read the explanation as given to Chrome and Steele. The betrayal by one of their own, brought to light as well as the reasons behind Elite Recon being formed and how and why everyone was extracted instead of just Titanium’s team.

We meet Charles the man behind Titanium, the one who takes the weight of the world and his teams on his shoulders with only Poppy, Raine and his precious dog Annie as his support system.

We discover the secret longing Raine has for her charge and see her complete devotion to him not only as a patient but as a man. One of my favorite scenes is when the team gangs up on him and gifts him with a way to ride on a motorcycle again. Which leads to the admission of his love and lust for Raine. This is a little peek.

The crank of the engine turning over and the throaty growl bouncing around the hangar sucker punched him in the gut.

“Coming?” She asked louder than the last time to be heard over the call of the bike. “I’ve been riding for years if it makes you feel any better. No one else is here so it’s totally up to you. No one will make you feel bad if you don’t come.”

“None but those who have bets placed on whether or not I’ll pussy out.”

Her laugh sounded like sex with the purr of the engine seducing him. “Well, there is that but you can deal with them tomorrow. I can handle a big machine between my legs.” She didn’t pause for him to make some funny retort at her innuendo, not that he could have, since his mouth had gone dry. “Take a walk on the wild side, Charles. I promise to keep your virtue safe.”

He took a step forward, reaching for her, and then another.

Her palm slid along his, guiding him behind her. She was already seated and he swung a leg over the seat and sat down. Tucking up close behind her, there was no way she could miss he was hard. “And what about your virtue? Who will protect yours while we’re out?”

So many secrets are revealed on the difficult road leading all of them slowly and somewhat painfully to become a family not by blood but choice.

A story that brings tears and laughter, pain and healing. Keep the tissues close, you’ll need a lot of them.

Bravo, Jennifer! A fitting close to this installment of the Elite Warrior Series. I can’t wait to see what’s next for these amazing men and women.
