A Tortured Hero with a Heart of Gold
Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she’s sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible.
Years later, Titan Group’s Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he’s a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs.
Meets Sweet and Sassy
Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She’s intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she’s been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore.
Javier is her older brother’s black ops teammate—an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there’s one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancé, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man.
It’s a Game Changer
Javier didn’t expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn’t have touched her, but his mind won’t stay away from her.
Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents’ lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She’s a staffer at an Embassy, and he’s there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies.
And then she’s taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.
This book. I love it! Not very eloquent, I know but just enough to express exactly how I feel about it. The connection between Javier and Sophie was beyond words and made me melt. Besides, don’t you just love a guy who’s not afraid to put himself out there and declare his feelings?
Javier Almeida has been driven by the need to avenge his sister who was sold to a human trafficking cartel, and his recruitment into Team Delta came with the promise that he would get his chance to do just that. But after his one night stand with Sophia Cole, on the night of her botched wedding no less, he can’t stop thinking about her and for the first time in his life, he finds himself distracted from his plan for revenge.
If anyone epitomizes grace in a tough situation it’s Sophia Cole, but then her mother trained her well. After walking away from her cheating groom at the altar, Sophia just wants to celebrate her narrow escape with cake and champagne, but being on display can be tough on a gal, so she sneaks away for some privacy and finds herself celebrating in a different way with her older brother’s teammate she’s had a crush on, the tatted and sexy Javier.
And it’s certainly a night to remember, one that blows all her previous sexual encounters out of the water but when their paths cross while working in South America, it’s not all sunshine and roses. Javier knows the reality of life in this part of the world and wants to keep Sophia safe, but Sophia believes in her mission and won’t leave in spite of the risk. But when she’s in danger, Javier will have to make a tough choice between revenge and love. How hard will this choice be?
Javier and Sophia are an unlikely pairing with their backgrounds, but they are perfect for each other. With a pain and loss-filled past like Javier’s, it was big deal for him to open his heart up to Sophia and I love that he dealt with his feelings for her the same way he did everything else: fearlessly. I love Sophia’s independent streak and her loyalty, even though I didn’t care much for her stubbornness in the face of danger.
With every new book, Ms. Harber’s writing only gets better. Javier and Sophia stole my heart and ran off with it. Parker who? Delta: Revenge is a great balance of intense passion and danger and I can’t wait for the next book in the series, maybe Colin’s?
