Ryan “Dash” Hayes has a penchant for breaking the rules. If it’s for the right reasons, and he doesn’t get caught, he won’t hesitate. To him, rules are guidelines to be used to keep the sheep in line, not him. But his commander is willing to give him the benefit of the doubt because he’s good at his job as a Delta Force Operative. Fast, effective and willing to sacrifice his life to save others.
After her singing partner is killed in a bus crash, Sunny Daye joins the USO. What better way to punish herself for surviving than to put herself at risk in a country full of conflict? When attempts are made to kidnap her, she’s given a choice…leave the country or accept another bodyguard for the remainder of her tour.
Enter Dash, the cocky, irreverent Delta Force soldier who seems to show up at the best/worst times to save the day.
Okay, if she has to have a bodyguard, she has a few rules he must follow:
One - Hands off
Two - No kissing
Three - No falling in love with the talent
With a grin and a wink, Dash agrees to her terms. But then Dash has never met a rule he wasn’t willing to break.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I just adored this story. Breaking Rules is about Dash (Ryan Hayes) a Delta Force operator. He and his team are in Afghanistan. They are trying to take down an American who is selling women and children into the sex trade. The man gets away BUT they were able to save the truckload of women and children. Back at the base is a USO tour group and Sunny Daye is the singer. One of Dash’s teammates really wants to get back in time to see the show but they are too late. Back at the base, Dash is in a race with another Delta, when he accidentally runs into a man carrying a body bag. Dash doesn’t have good feelings when the man drops the bag and runs. Before Dash can take off after the man, a feminine voice cries for help. Dash had just rescued Sunny from being kidnapped!
Even though Sunny has 4 bodyguards, she was still taken. No wonder she only feels safe with the well-built, good-looking Delta. Dash’s commanding officer assigns him to help provide protection as they feel the American trading in the sex business may have been the one to offer put the bounty on Sunny
The author did a fabulous job in keeping me glued to my e-reader. The plot flowed beautifully. Who is the mystery man behind the kidnapping attempts? Is it the same man that the Delta team was after right from the beginning? The story was one that kept me turning the pages on my e-reader. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story especially as it was written in the dual POV format.
This is a sexy read without being erotica. While this is the second book of the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. The first book is for the team leader and I haven’t read it and I thoroughly enjoyed this. I would only recommend this to someone over the age of 18.
When you know, you just know!
This is book two in the Delta Force Strong series and it features Ryan “Dash” Hayes and Sunny Daye. This romance happens uber quick! This entire story takes place in a matter of a couple days but I guess when you know, you know. These are two people that long for more but their careers don’t really allow for more. He’s Delta Force and she’s singing on a USO tour entertaining the troops in Afghanistan. The chemistry is sizzling HOT! The action is fantastic.
The story line is great and the characters are amazing! I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
ARC for honest review with no compensation
Breaking Rules is book 2 in the Delta Force Strong series by Elle James and while this is a standalone it is also a continuation finding out who is in charge of the human trafficking of women and children in Afghanistan.
Ryan ‘Dash’ Hayes, Delta Force operative is back at base after breaking up a sex trade but losing the man in charge. As he is returning to his tent he runs into a man carrying a body bag...the man gets away but the bag is moving and talking...when he opens it...it’s none other than Sunny Daye the USO singer, he and his team were to see in the show.
Dash and his team are now assigned to keep Ms. Daye safe from anymore attempted abduction which of course leads to more attempts, lots of action, suspense as to who is behind the human trafficking, hot chemistry, romance and finding their HEA...
