A DATE WITH DANGER
As the first female operative at Alpha Security, Charlotte “Charlie” Sparks has her work cut out for her. Sure, she can wrestle a man to the ground and hit a target at 200 yards with the best of them. But sometimes, being surrounded by all that testosterone can drive a woman to distraction-especially when that distraction is six-and-a-half feet of cocky, confident, Alpha-trained muscle.
Ex-SEAL commander Vince Franklin has been on some of the most dangerous missions in the world. But pretending to be Charlie’s fiancé on their latest assignment in Miami is his toughest challenge yet. Vince and Charlie are like oil and water; they just don’t mix. And when their fake romance generates some all-too-real heat, Vince learns that Charlie is more than just arm candy. She’s the real deal-and she’s ready for some serious action.
I have been wanting to read this series for a while and I finally got a chance to do so, and so far I love how well written it was. If you enjoy reading about action, danger and passion, then HARD JUSTICE is one book you should check out. Ms. Hunt is a new-to-me author, but I will be looking out for more from her.
Charlie Sparks can hold her own against almost any man, but Ex-SEAL Vince Franklin is the only man around whom her brain short-circuits, which is not such a good thing since they are about to go undercover as a couple on the latest assignment from the agency and she’ll need her wits about her for this assignment while keeping her secrets that way.
Charlie is driven to be the best at everything and as her past is revealed, it puts her present choices into context perfectly, same as Vince. For Vince, emotional decisions have proved very costly and he prefers logic these days.
Vince is not immune to Charlie either and when their cover becomes all too real, the stakes become even higher for him. Keeping Charlie safe is now more than just a job for him and he knows that Charlie’s secrets would provide the key to understanding her, but will he gain her trust in time to get the information he needs to keep her safe or will he have to go around her to get what he needs? And how will his choice affect the growing bond between them?
I really enjoyed Charlie and Vince’s sparring and you could almost feel the heat of the sizzle between them in every interaction they had even before they became partners and the fireworks did not let up when they were in the field.
The story started out slow for me but picked up really quick with twists and turns that left me uneasy, especially with the subject matter and Charlie’s own past. Overall, this was an enjoyable read and I look forward to more in this series.
