Second book in a series. Josie McCall has been raised to be a soldier. Daniel Black Eagle is an explosive expert. Josie's dad is almost killed by a bob and Daniel and Josie team up to find them. Great adventure and romance with a lot of action.
The heroine of the novel is downright annoying at times. Apparently, she is so naive about the ways of men, that Nitro has to explain everything to her. That's a little hard to believe. There were times, the heroine's internal and external dialogue made me sigh, but I found the courage to push on. If you can get passed that, and Nitro's constantly feeling insecure about the friendship between Josie and his friend, Hotwire, then I would say the book is an okay read. I found the first installment of the series to be better.
Having said that:
I am interested in reading the third installment of the series entitled "Able", because Josie's friend Claire seems like she has an interesting back story that I would enjoy hearing. The book was worth reading, just to get introduced to the next pairing in line. They treat Claire like a poor defenseless computer geek, with little physical strength, but I think there is going to be more to this woman. There just has to be!
This was my favorite of the mercenary series. I thought the story had a fast pace, stayed interesting, and I enjoyed the characters. I would recommend this book, although it might be best to do the whole series in order (it often is). Even if you find Ready lacking, give Willing a try.
Second book in Monroe's Mercenary series. The characters were interesting and the story moved fast. Nice addition to the series.
2nd in series. Light, quick, hawt! Good beach read. Again with the no cussing....Lucy Monroe needs to accept her characters for what they are and how mercenaries would speak. Plus again with the turgid nipples....go figure.
Cookie cutter story to the first, hero afraid of love, but good story.
