If I wasn’t at the edge of my seat, I’m looking for what will happen next, but then again, I didn’t have to wait long between exciting scenes. This book is non stop action from the beginning until the end. From hostage situations to bombs, to gunfights, to the steamy scenes…I devoured every page.
Lanie is now part of Hornet team but seems to be having a hard time fitting in. Perhaps earning respect from the team would help, but for some reason, there is a barrier that’s preventing that from happening. With the hostage situation, Lanie will be forced to take action inadvertently showing her worth. But will it be enough to earn her the respect she deserves? Will she get it from the man she once loved?
While Jesse leads the Hornets, Lanie joining the team was never an issue for him. He already respects her more than she knows. Although, with his past experience with loss, Jesse has become more protective of his crew, that including Lanie and his son which has dampened his relationship with them. He knows he has to work several issues if he wants to make both relationships work. Just like Lanie, he has a few things to sort out before giving himself the freedom to really move on.
It felt like forever since the last time I’ve read this series. And when I checked, the last installment of this series was in 2015. Why Burrows waited so long, I have no idea, but she shouldn’t have waited. As I read my reviews of the previous books, I remembered how good these books are. Honestly, this book is just as good if not better.
I love that Burrows wrote a love story of two people who not only found each other but also pursuing their own dreams. I love that they didn’t have to sacrifice anything for the other because they gave each other a wide berth for growth. Of course, it wasn’t easy for them in the beginning. Trust will be their biggest issue but I assure you they will survive this.
As far as the action and suspense go as mentioned earlier, it’s none stop. I kid you not it was like watching a very good action film. Burrows did a good job in making this book pretty darn exciting. The banters between the guys had me laughing, and Jesse’s relationship with his son was heartwarming. I like that Burrows portrayal of the characters are both kick ass and easy to love.
Next up is the Cajun Hornet, the player of the team, who apparently have been cursed. Poor guy. I have a feeling his story will be very entertaining.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
