Synopsis

A LONE STAR LOVER

They live to protect. They live to fight for honor and justice. They live to love the women who have captured their souls. These are the Sons of Texas, from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

In The Legend, Callie Reed doesn’t need a man to protect her. An expert sharpshooter and renegade hacker, this Texas-born spitfire’s got the skills and the courage to stand up to any danger―no matter how deadly. But when she becomes the target of a shadowy organization known as the Saints, Callie is forced to team up with the one man she can’t outshoot: the gorgeous, and infuriating, Lone Star legend named Wyatt Loughman…

A Delta Force Colonel with a rock-hard body and stone-cold heart, Wyatt has been teasing and tormenting Callie since they were playmates on his family’s ranch. Of course, he’s wildly attracted to the fiery, strong-willed Callie. But he’s always hidden his feelings behind a wall of Texas tough and military cool, even as he’s burning up with desire. Can Wyatt save Callie’s life―without putting her love in the line of fire?

So this book is considered an inter-connected standalone. Yes, you could read this book by itself, but I would read the first two books (The Hero and The Protector) first. I was able to follow this story but some things were just a bit confusing for me, because I didn’t know the history with the family. Also, it was a lot of characters swirling around and I think it would have made more sense to me had I experienced the first two books.

Generally, I enjoyed the story. Callie, in particular, was really likable and I enjoyed her fighting spirit. She has never had an easy go of things in life, but she always keeps trying and learning from her experiences. I also enjoyed that we see Callie’s character working on coding and other factors that would require her to be intelligent and able to think on her feet. I personally love seeing a heroine who is able to knock the socks off the guys and Callie is definitely that.

Wyatt’s character is the epitome of broody, alpha male. However, even though he was that, he was also sensitive and his softer side did come through during certain parts of the story. Another facet of Wyatt that I loved is that the reader gets to go back in time with he and Callie. We see their past, and we also see Wyatt learning from the past. Callie is trying to protect her heart, but Wyatt seemed to learn his heart.

One thing I really struggled with in this book was some of the things the characters did just didn’t make much sense to me. One scene that stood out was Wyatt carrying Callie to a location. They had a car and could have driven in, but Wyatt feels that’s too risky, so he decided to carry her. To me, this seemed to make them even more vulnerable. There were other times where this happened in the book. I didn’t necessarily mind the character doing one thing vs another, it was just hard for me to see the character actually doing that.

Overall, I enjoyed this story. The story is full of non-stop action. I could honestly seeing this series being made into a movie, or t.v. series because the action is always going. There are no dull moments and I enjoyed that a lot.

Out of Love by RC Boldt

outoflove-rc-boldt

Synopsis

Foster Kavanaugh, former Navy SEAL, knows what it’s like to be the top dog, the man in charge, the one calling the shots. Now that he’s running his own security consulting firm, not much has changed.

Except the curvy blonde he hired as his office manager.

Noelle Davis has been through the damn ringer. Swearing off men after escaping a toxic relationship, she’s grateful for a fresh start—new job included. Except her job isn’t tranquil and calm. In fact, it’s quite the opposite because her boss is the most infuriating man on the planet.

And, not to mention, sexy as hell.

Foster has limits. Rules. No attachments allowed because he doesn’t do love—and Noelle Davis foiled that plan and took a red pen to his list of rules. With her smart mouth and quick witted banter, he found the woman beginning to creep past his defenses.

When circumstances put Noelle in a perilous position, the first person to come to her rescue is none other than Foster Kavanaugh. She gets to see the man in action—not as her aggravating boss, but the man who will stop at nothing to keep her safe.

The same man who makes her want to reconsider her self-imposed embargo of men.

The man she wants to get to know now that she’s seen another side of him.

The man who makes her want…more.

But is more possible when you’re OUT OF LOVE?

So first, I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it so much that I actually forced myself to read it slowly, so I could really take my time and absorb the story and its characters. Yes, that is how much I liked it.

So Noelle and Foster work together. They have this incredibly sharp banter that goes back and forth nonstop. It’s hilarious and I share the same sense of humor, so I aligned with both characters immediately.

Noelle does find herself in a tough spot due to things in her past and Foster is the first to come to her rescue. (I don’t want to give spoilers, hence the vagueness) Even though these two jab and prod at each other, once they really get to know each other is when the magic happens (and I don’t just mean that sexually).

One aspect I really appreciated in this story is that Foster has some real issues. Noelle also has her issues. At some point, these characters need to step up to the plate if they want their relationship to work. Normally, I don’t care for characters who have lingering discourse, but with Noelle and Foster, it really worked. I think one reason for that is that they never really “officially” become a thing. They just are. So their own issues aren’t really “big deals” until we reach a real peak in the story.

There were a couple aspects of this story that I wish had been more developed. We some mystery regarding Foster’s close friend, Hendy. I don’t know if the author is planning to make this group into a series (which I would be absolutely on board with since I enjoyed this book so much). Another facet was Noelle’s past. When everything is sort of sealed up, it almost felt too neat and tidy.

I have only read a few books from this author but each one, I have enjoyed immensely. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to see their alpha males and strong women go head to head in one amazing office romance.
