Petty Officer Bacon, a navy SEAL and ace sharpshooter, has been on the front lines of more than his fair share of dangerous ops. Yet when a minor injury relegates him to the beta team, he’s tasked with what may be his riskiest assignment yet: the silver fox journalist he’s babysitting is the hottest, most charismatic man he’s ever encountered.
Award-winning journalist Spencer Bryant may have been named one of Pride magazine’s most eligible bachelors of the year, but he’s not looking to change his relationship status. He’s a consummate professional who won’t risk his ethics or impeccable reputation by getting involved with a source. Even a sexy-as-hell military man. But while Spencer can resist his physical attraction to Bacon, he has less control over his emotions—especially when the mission goes sideways and the two men are trapped alone.
Getting out of the jungle alive turns out to be easy compared to facing the truth about their feelings for one another back in the real world. And whether or not they can build a future is a different story altogether.
It was hard for me to decide whether to round up or down. I’m a big fan of the series and this author but this book was my least favorite. Not to say that I didn’t enjoy it, it just didn’t grab my attention as much as the other books.
To be more specific, I really liked some parts of the book like:
-the slow burn and the first time the characters came together.
-the age gap. I’m not always a fan of that but it really worked here. Probably because Bacon was very mature.
-the angst in the end was my favorite part. I love it when there is conflict and relationship angst in my books, and this one hit the spot.
BUT I was expecting fireworks and their reunion left me somewhat cold. Other than that I don’t have major complaints. I just felt that the first half of the book dragged and couldn’t hold my attention, maybe because of the overload of military details.
In any case, I’m sticking with the series and I’m hoping for Rooster’s story next.
Recommended for the fans of the series.
