Publisher Description

He took her innocence. He broke her heart. He's the only one who can save her life...

Evie Baker hasn’t seen Matt Girard in ten years. Not since the night she gave him her virginity. Now the Black Ops soldier is back in town and looking to make things right. Too bad she doesn’t believe a word he says. But when her sister goes missing and Evie’s suddenly a suspect in a murder, Matt’s the only man she can trust to keep her safe.

Matt knew Evie wanted forever ten years ago, but all he wanted was escape. He’s older and wiser now, and he knows what matters. He’ll do whatever it takes—break any rules necessary—to protect Evie and find her sister. 

And then he’ll do everything he can to win his best friend’s heart and prove he’s the man she needs him to be. 

The Hostile Operations Team is a covert military Black Ops unit. Their motto is Where None Dare. H.O.T. operators come from all branches of the military. The only criteria for membership: they must be the best of the best!

Anaxkolasi ,


I just decided to reread the HOT series, and this second chance romance was just as good as I remembered. Matt and Evie have known each other since they were children. They had a serious falling out when they were teenagers (you can read all about it in the prequel; Reckless Heat) and it is now 10 years later. Matt is back in town for his sisters wedding and Evie is back in town after having her life turned upside down. With disappearances and bodies showing up in their small town they find themselves thrown together to figure out what is going on. Will old feelings resurface or will they find that they have changed to much over the years? Mystery and intrigue is in abundance in this book and I really enjoyed their story!
