Disclaimer: I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely mine.

Bianca Devlin’s work is her life. Now, she’s finally taking a vacation…and guerillas hit her resort to kidnap a diplomat’s son. She does the only thing that makes sense—intervene to save the child’s life. Being dragged into the jungle with a scared kid she’s determined to protect was definitely not how she saw this trip ending. 

After she returns to Texas, the last person Bianca expected to see was Sergeant Carlos “Cage” Castillo, the member of Bravo Team WOLF that helped rescue her. Nevertheless, there he is, living across the street from the house she just bought. The coincidence is alarming, but she has to admit, his presence isn’t entirely unwanted. 

But there’s something off about Cage—the way he can move without a sound or the weird way his eyes seem to almost glow at times. And how can Bianca manage her growing attraction, when everything she knows about him and his reason for being there, turns out to be a lie?

 

Review

Bianca Devlin ‘s life is all work and no play as a disaster relief worker, but it figures that the one time she’s forced to take a vacation, she gets kidnapped by guerillas when she steps in to prevent them from taking a diplomat’s son. 

Bravo Team WOLF comes to the rescue and Bianca returns home to recuperate but her life is about to get turned upside down and Sergeant Carlos “Cage” Castillo may be the only person to help her make sense of it, if she lets him.

I was completely blown away by the first book in this series and expected BITTEN UNDER FIRE to be similar, so I was somewhat disappointed when I didn’t get any of the action and suspense I was expecting. But this book ended up being fun in its own way.

Bianca is independent, strong and enjoys a life with no fuss, but her attraction to Cage is reason to slow down and enjoy a slower pace and an unexpected romance. However, romance may not be the only change she is facing and she’ll need every bit of fortitude she’s built to face an uncertain future, which may or may not have Cage in it.

There were a few parts of the story that felt kind of cheesy to me, but overall, it was an enjoyable story with some surprises. I enjoyed the change of pace from the action-packed, suspense -filled series opener, and I am looking forward to what the author has to offer next.
