Hello Readers, welcome back to my blog.


He was everything she craved…and everything that would ruin her.

Ethan Archer has just earned his sergeant’s stripes, and his Special Forces team decides that a trip to LA is a perfect way to celebrate. Ethan has other motives for agreeing to the vacation. He can’t forget a magical hour in a North Cascades forest last winter, shared with an indigo-eyed goddess who now calls LA her home.

Ava Chestain is a stylist for Bella Lanza, star of a hit nighttime drama. When Ethan and his buddies finagle a visit to the set, his reunion with Ava melts the months away. But their time is cut short by Bella, who’s determined to rekindle her own naughty past with Ethan. His efforts to push Bella off are thwarted when the unit is called to assist the CIA on a terrorist plot to destroy the West Coast. Part of the plan? Someone has to get closer to Bella, and Ethan’s the logical choice.

Though Ethan risks his career by telling Ava about the plot, her trust is an impossible gift to earn. Her passion is a different story. As his willing submissive, Ava gives him the fire his body craves and the surrender his soul needs. She’s a dream come true, until the cuffs come off and the sun comes up. When a terrifying turn of events escalates the terrorists’ plan into reality, Ethan must make decisions that will either kill or save them all. Can Ava trust him enough to stand by him with everything she is…including what could be her last breath?


Ethan Archer felt a profound connection with Ava Chestain when he met her at Garrett’s wedding. The connection had them deep in each other’s throats within 1 day of knowing each other. But Ava ghosts him for 7 months because she doesn’t want to repeat her past mistakes. Ethan spends 7 months wondering what went wrong and decides to hunt down Ava for some answers. Ava has been secretly desiring domination from a partner but military men are her Achilles heels. She has been burnt not once but twice, so she runs fast and far when she experiences the instant connection with Ethan ‘runway’ Archer. Ethan is not prepared to let Ava go even though he has to cozy up to Ava’a boss on a mission.

I loved both POVs and the extra POV of Tate was awesome. It felt like getting two stories in one book with the same chain of events. Military romance with light BDSM are deliciously nice.

I gave 3 out of 5 stars. This story suffered from something that most stories in the middle of a series do, which is ordinariness. It was nice but it wasn’t great. I would recommend this to readers who love quick explosive passion between the main protagonists.
