Review: ☆Dangerously Hot☆ by @LynnRayeHarris

 

The world’s most wanted man is back from the dead. And only one woman can stop him… 

Former Army linguist Lucky San Ramos escaped with her life, but the scars an evil terrorist leader left on her skin are a constant reminder of her captivity. Now her tormentor is back—and so is the sexy Special Operations soldier she once loved.

HOT operator Kevin “Big Mac” MacDonald rescued Lucky the last time. And then he walked away when he couldn’t be what she needed. When Lucky married his teammate, Kev knew it was for the best. But now Marco is dead and Lucky is no longer safe.

When Kev and Lucky team up to capture a terrorist, they’ll have to pretend to be man and wife on an explosive military mission to a war-torn nation. With time running out and the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Kev and Lucky play a perilous game of cat and mouse with a madman during the day.

But at night, they battle the secrets of the past and the sizzling attraction that threatens to endanger the mission. Lucky shouldn’t want the man who abandoned her once before. But the passion between them is sinfully, sensuously, dangerously hot… and proving impossible to resist.

In Kev’s world, sex with a variety of women was easy. It was love that was impossible.

If you want an action packed and sexy romantic suspense, this is the series you really need to get acquainted with. I’ve been looking for a long time for something similar to Cindy Gerard’s Black Ops series, and I’m so happy I stumbled onto HOT. Each book only gets better and better…and did I mention sexier?

Lucinda “Lucky” San Ramos narrowly escaped death when she was captured by a terrorist during a mission. Left with a daily reminder of her torture not only through her surface scars, but internal ones too, she left active duty and moved to Hawaii…only to lose her husband during a mission 2 years later. Now a widow, she’s trying to move on and forget her past life…and everyone in it; including her husband’s best friend and current HOT operator, Kevin “Big Mac” MacDonald. Unfortunately her plans change when the man himself shows up at her doorstep telling her she’s their only hope to catch a terrorist she long thought was dead.

Mac has always been attracted to Lucky, but he knew he was no good for her, so he pushed her off to his best friend and watched her from afar. Having been the one that rescued her those years ago, he tried to stay in touch with her but she wanted nothing to do with him. Now his orders are to bring her in and convince her to go on a mission that’s just as dangerous as the one that once got her captured. But that’s not his hardest mission, that would be trying to fight his undeniable attraction to a woman that seems to be completely immune to his Southern good ole’ boy charm.

Nipples? That’s your proof? I haven’t been warm since I landed in this icebox and you think my nipples are hard for any other reason?”
Stop now, dude. Just stop. “Yeah, I do.”
She snorted. “We all want you, don’t we, Southern boy? You turn up the drawl and we fling our panties at you?” She flicked her fingers at him. “Take your drawl down to the bar and get laid so your brain will be clear again. I’m going back to sleep.”

Stuck together on a mission where they pretend to be husband and wife, forces them to confront all those long forgotten feelings; Kev’s guilt over wanting his best friend’s widow and Lucky’s never forgotten feelings to a man that didn’t want her those years ago.

…She feared Kev. The way he made her feel. Her emotions were scraped raw in this environment. There was no room for deceit or obfuscation. She feared the way the simplest touch could light her up inside and make her long for so much more. If she’d thought for one moment that a single night with him would ease this longing, she’d been very wrong.

This author has an ability to write a heroine that is endearingly fragile and yet equal parts fierce and strong. I absolutely loved that about Lucky. She survived a horror at the hands of a mad man, and she doesn’t hide her fear of this mission. She had this understated strength to her that you just can’t help but feel for her.

Miss Harris also does a fantastic job of weaving romance and suspense together effortlessly. It’s never out of place or overbalances the other. It’s this perfect combination that will have your heart pounding and then leave you panting.

Kev was a great hero as well. He’s not perfect and he has his own demons that he fights but he’s also sexy and protective all with just that right amount of damaged.

Deep inside he always wondered if his past had damaged him so badly he could never be the kind of man any woman should take a chance on.

Action packed, suspenseful, and sexy, Dangerously Hot was another fantastic addition to the HOT series. The romance, the story, everything about this book worked for me.

If you’re a fan of the genre, this is a book that’s not to be missed. While a part of a series, each book can be easily read as a standalone. You do get to meet some of the characters earlier in the series, and usually you’ll meet the future hero or heroine in the previous book. But the author does a great job reiterating any necessary information without making it sound redundant to the readers that have already read the previous books.

 

Don’t miss the rest of the series!
