I enjoyed it so much so that I immediately went out and bought book 1. This is a nice little second chance romance with lots of action. The hero and heroine knew each other way back when. She wanted him and he wanted her but shes his best friends little sister and her father and mother provided him with the family stability his own parents didnt so not much happened. Now hes come back into her life just in time to save her from mega-bad-guy terrorists who think she knows something she doesnt
The hero is the newest member of H.O.T., a group that seems to combine the physical skills of a Special Forces team with mad hacker skills of an MIT computer lab. They specialize in anti-terrorism so her problem is right in their ball court but [of course] they are super hush-hush so they never do much explaining.
The heroine is [understandably!] terrified of the turn her life has taken but is happy it has led Sam back to her. She still wants him and not for just now, she wants forever. Sam still feels she deserves better, his military career - especially in such a high-risk group - would be too great a burden, yada, yada. He finally caves and they work on a compromise: hell believe its a happy for now and shell believe its happily ever after
Needless to say Im rooting for the HEA. The sex is well written and doesnt bury the plot, the plot kept me turning the pages, and the characters were interesting. Characterization is probably the weakest point in this story. Although you get a good feel of the KIND of people they are, I never really got a defined visual for either of them. I suspect that is the result of the shortness of the story. Its still an enjoyable read that I cheerfully recommend.
The first book is Hot Pursuit.
