Their attraction is explosive.
But she's been burned worse than him.
Everett Gaines was searching for answers.

Acts so violent and gruesome that she never imagined are forced upon her until a savior explodes through her prison door. After a failed escape, Foster vows to protect her at all costs. With risk to his own life, Everett see's something in the solitary man.
A longing to be someone's everything at a time when she needs him most.
One Explosive Encounter leaves them breathless and Foster wants more.
But Everett pushes him away. Refusing to hear him out and why they could be more.
Foster won't let go though and when sinister forces come rushing back, Everett is forced to rely on Task Force 779 to keep her safe.
After the pain ends and secrets come to light, will Everett still be alive to make the choice her heart desire's or will Foster be left an empty shell from a lost love?
Explosive Encounter was very dynamic and lived up to the hype that the previous book set up. Foster and Everrett have it rough from the start. But, a bond was forged in that hellhole and a bond like that quickly shows you who you can trust and who you can’t. Even with that trust established, there are still some issues that they encounter as two people wanting to be together. Foster and Evie together are a dynamic couple. I loved how the story played out and how the bonds between the team seemed to leap off the pages. Everrett never experienced that type of relationship before and there would be no better group to bring her out of the darkness left by her horrible experience. No one should have to pull themselves from the darkness alone. Foster and the guys were right there in the darkness and made sure they remained with her and each other as support.
The giddiness I felt reading Foster and Evie’s story made the story itself fly by because I just couldn’t put it down. There were times when I couldn’t even breathe and then times where I couldn’t turn the page fast enough. This story like its previous is above any expectations that I had.
I can’t wait for the next book to release because if it is going to be like its series partners then it will be even better than Explosive Encounter!
Big Bang to My Heart
Amazing Read! Definitely recommend this book and series. Everett is a beautifully broken strong woman! Having gone through so much torture and destruction, she does not let that get her down, she wants to find answers and to one day move on with her life. After hearing the voice that helped her get through her capture she builds a connection with the man that saved her. With everything that Foster had gone through with the capture, his ex wife, and his other missions you can’t help but want a happy ending for these two. I was rooting for them to continue to fight to be together, telling Everett to give in and take her man, and get some good in her life. Then cussing Foster out for making such a a$$holish move. Of course I couldn’t put this one down, then hated myself for finishing it so quickly only to know that I would have to wait that much longer for the next release. But that’s a price I’ll pay, because I can’t help but Love KL’s words. Again I can’t tell you enough to One Click this series and prepare yourself for all the feels.
Excellent story with drama, action, suspense and of course steamy scenes! This is a gripping tale that kept me glued to my kindle. There were tears and laugh out loud moments sometimes I was laughing through my tears. I fell absolutely in love with Everett and Foster. Their love stood absolute and wavering through the violence and pain. I can’t wait for the next installment of this series!!
