My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hot as Hades (Four Horsemen MC Series #2) by Cynthia Rayne
This is the second installment of the Four Horsemen MC Series.
The book follows Cowboy’s story and how he meets Daisy. As Cowboy stakes out a rival MCs strip joint he immediately spots Daisy stripping on stage. Sparks fly between these two instantly, but they are both on a mission. Cowboy is trying to get Intel on the Raptors MC and their prostitution ring and Daisy is trying to find her sister who has gone missing last seen with a Raptor. Cowboy convinces Daisy that they should work together with his club to find out what the Raptors are up to and find her sister Rose. Daisy reluctantly agrees, she’s a marine after all and she doesn’t need any help least of all a gang of bikers. Daisy finds out rather quickly that the Four Horsemen MC is not completely what they appear to be, they are hardcore bikers true, but they don’t deal in drugs or selling or abusing women.
I really love this series, one of my favorite in the genre. The author knows how to tell a good story. This one was different from the first one in that it was more intense and serious subject matter. Human trafficking, rape, violence, forced drug use, all play a part in how this story unfolds. The other guys Shepard, Duke, Captain and Voo Doo from the previous book are all present as well as some new faces. Little tidbits of their future stories come up. Like something is definitely brewing between Eddie and Captain, not to mention Shepard and Pretty boy. There is also some comic relief when the prospects do a little strip tease at a party with the girls, which had me laughing out loud.
I loved Cowboy, he was sexy, charming and just had my heart from the beginning and Daisy’s too even though she refused to admit it. When we find out the tragedy in Cowboy’s past oh my, did my heart break for him. The sex scenes were steamy and at times playful.
Having sisters of my own I related to Daisy’s desire to do anything she could to save her sister, at the expense of her own life. If you like a strong kick ass heroine and a hot as hell sexy cowboy biker with a solid story behind them, you will love this book.
I look forward to Duke and Rose’s story.

Do or Die (Reluctant Heroes, #1) by Suzanne Brockmann - ARC Review

Do or Die (Reluctant Heroes, #1)Do or Die by Suzanne Brockmann

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Do or Die (Reluctant Heroes #1) by Suzanne Brockmann

I have never read a Suzanne Brockmann novel before. This book had sucked me in from the start.
Suzanne Brockmann knows her way around a HOT ALPHA male, Ian is definitely all alpha. There is military action, suspense and sexiness in this book which totally kept my interest.

Ian and Phoebe have chemistry, tension and a bit of comedy which gives a real feel to the characters. I loved Ian's family as well. There is a bit of m/m in the book too which was nicely done. Ian kind of reminded me of Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible character Ethan Hunt.
I liked Phoebe from the start she was a strong female character, she held her own with Ian and their banter was very entertaining.
There was tons of action and suspense to keep the reader wanting more, truly an action packed book.
This is my first Suzanne Brockmann book and I thoroughly enjoyed it, it will not be my last for sure. I loved Ian’s wittiness, sexiness and total alpha maleness. He proctects what he loves with his life.
I was wrapped up in the story of these characters from beginning to end.
I received an copy for review from Netgalley for an honest review.

Bound to Danger (Deadly Ops #2) by Katie Reus - ARC Review

Bound to Danger (Deadly Ops, #2)Bound to Danger by Katie Reus

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bound for Danger (Deadly Ops #2) by Katie Reus

Action and Suspense

This is the second book in the Deadly Ops series, but can be read as a stand-alone.

This is the first book of Katie Reus that I have read and I really enjoyed it.

I want to go back and read the previous book Targeted.

Marie and Cade are strong, likeable characters. The story is just filled with non-stop action and suspense. I was on the edge of my seat as I read.

Maria overhears terrorist planning destruction, she ends up in an explosion at the benefit after hearing the terrorist plot. She wakes up with no memory she is in a state of shock and grief and quickly finds out the NSA believes her to be a person of interest. Since she is the only survivor of the blast.

Cade O’Reilly is an NSA agent, he jumps at the chance to question Maria when he sees her name on the lone survivor list from the blast. She is the woman he can’t forget, the younger sister of his best friend. He is the man who deserted her when she needed him the most and never told her why. Nothing will stop him from protecting her not even Maria herself. She’s trying to remember what happened that night he and doesn’t make protecting her easy for him at all. But he is up to the challenge if it means he gets to protect her and be near her.

The building of the relationship of these characters through emails while Cade was in service was very well written. It helps us to understand the feelings these two characters developed for each other over time. The attraction is still there strong as ever years later, even though both of them fight it. Cade needs to gain her trust and Maria needs to believe he cares.
The author gave us very interesting background characters, that kept the story exciting.
