Lola LaRue, Chief Warrant Officer of the U.S. Army's secret helicopter regiment, is a natural at everything except relationships. She's a professional in the air but she screws up every time she touches the ground.
Sergeant "Crazy" Tim Maloney is a goner the moment he first sees LaRue on a mission to deliver a Delta Force team into the Iranian Desert. He's always been a 'love 'em and leave 'em' kind of guy, but all that changes when Lola's in danger. Now with the stakes higher than ever, they must find a way to eliminate a threat that could destroy more than just their future.
I have read all but the first in this series and I am a big fan, but I have to say this one wasn’t exactly hitting the mark for me. Don’t get me wrong. It was a good book, just not a great one.
The romance between our hero and heroine was perfect. I loved how Lola and Tim would find time to play games together and other ways to just sit and spend time with each other. And I loved how his family embraced her with arms wide open. Their relationship seemed to progress in a natural way. Well, I guess as natural as you can in theater in the middle of a war zone. I even loved the action that was thrown into the mix too. But I did feel as if it took a while to get into the story. I kind of felt as though it was a bit too descriptive. It didn’t hit the right spot as the others did.
But have no fear! The other books I absolutely love and would read over again. Even this one. It was good but lacked the bit of wow factor that I was used to in the other books. I love Matt’s writing style and whatever his next step in the romance writing world, I will follow faithfully. 🙂
