Review: ☆Hot Rebel☆ by @LynnRayeHarris

A rebel on the run…

Victoria Royal is a traitor. Or so the U.S. government believes. Victoria was once a promising sniper in the Army, but now she’s gone rogue—worse, she’s just landed in the middle of a Hostile Operations Team mission in the desert and blasted it all to hell.
Nick “Brandy” Brandon doesn’t expect to run into Victoria when he’s bugging out from a mission gone wrong. It’s been more than three years since she disappeared from the sniper course they were in together, and he’s finally stopped thinking about her killer curves and smart mouth.But now she’s back—and she’s far more dangerous than Nick ever believed possible…

Is she really a traitor? Or is there something more at stake? He has to decide fast—because time’s running out and too many lives hang in the balance…

She’d disappeared a little over three years ago, and now she was here in the middle of a war zone, fucking up his mission.

You know what I love about this series? Freaking EVERYTHING. The fact that it only continues to get better and better with each new installment is just the icing on the cake. Lynn Raye Harris is able to deliver heart pounding suspense with a sensual and sizzling romance that all together adds up to an addicting and unputdownable read.

She looked like a somewhat frightened and helpless woman, and yet he knew she was a deadly assassin. The same as he was. She was like one of those startlingly beautiful creatures in the wild- colorful and attractive, but deadly when touched.

Nothing better than a bad ass heroine in my eyes, but make her a hot shot sniper and yet at the same time endearingly vulnerable and put her together with a cocky and yet endearingly protective hero?

Victoria Royal has been deemed a traitor by the US army and kicked out of the sniper training program all because her sister has been cavorting with a known terrorist. Determined to clear her name and rescue her sister who no longer seems to be voluntarily staying with a man that is on the US terrorist watch list, Victoria plays mercenary for a man that she hopes has some kernel of information about where her sister is. When her mission brings her face to face, or snope to snope as it were, with a face from her past, everything changes.

But this- him- she was out of her element.
It had come on fast. Too fast.
This crazy pull between hem was disconcerting and exciting all at once. 

Nick “Brandy” Brandon hasn’t seen Victoria since she left sniper training, but he’s never forgotten her. So when she comes in, guns blazing, and blows his mission to hell and back, he’s determined to not let her go this time. Whether she’s willing or not, he’ll bring her in, and she’ll work on the right side to help bring a known terrorist to justice.

I devoured this book just as I did the others in the series, but I think this one may be my favorite yet. The chemistry between Victoria and Nick was absolutely sizzling.

He reached for her, pulled her against his chest, and tilted her head back with both his hands on her face. He was a fucking goner. He was like an addict being offered a fix, and he couldn’t say no.

Both of them may try to fight it, but their pull to each other is undeniable.

I want you, Nick Brandon. I don’t know why, but I do. Badly. You’ve been under my skin since the first moment I saw you back in training, and while I have no fucking clue what I’m doing, I think I’d regret it for the rest of my life if I didn’t do this with you.

I have to admit, I could have done without Victoria being a (highlight to view spoiler)virgin (end spoiler)[virgin at 25 (hide spoiler)]. I’m growing kind of bored with that particular thing, but then again her explanation of why did make sense, so it didn’t bother me too much.

I can tell you that absolutely everything about this book worked for me; the action, the suspense, the romance, the characters. I also loved that Lynn began to weave a secondary POV into the story of the MC from the next book. I loved getting that little peek inside of “Iceman”.

If you’re a fan of romantic suspense, I’ve said it in all my reviews of this series, and I’ll say it again; THIS IS A MUST READ. Trust me. You’ll thank me for it later 😉

Don’t miss the rest of the series!
