Head of the personal safety division for Hawk Elite Security, Tan is serious about teaching his clients how to stay safe. But, with a file two inches thick confirming Elizabeth Whitney as a world champion athlete, he’s prepared to take on his newest assignment as the vacation he hasn’t had in over five years. A little instruction, a couple hockey games on the side, and he’ll be on his way to the next spoiled rich kid.
Elizabeth takes one look at Tancredo Byrnes and it doesn’t matter that she can perform a triple lutz-toe loop blindfolded; clumsy becomes her middle name. Though trusting people outside her family has never been her strong suit, she finds herself drawn to the easy-going man who is supposed to make her into a superwoman. But she’s been burned by those fickle feelings of attraction before and isn’t about to let them ruin her life again.
As their training intensifies, the threats to Elizabeth darken, and Tan realizes that what should have been a cake walk is a fight between life and death.
Genre: Romantic Suspense, military, sports (ice skating)
Part of a Series: Yes – Book 2 of the Hawk Elite Security
POV: Tan, Liz, and bad guy
Steam Level: Warm
Strike Fear, the second book in the Hawk Elite Security series, is better than the first book in this series. There were less typos and only two glaring timeline issues (one of which you wouldn’t know if you didn’t read book one first). This book kept me guessing throughout. I was never quite sure who that villiian was. I would guess and then change my mind. Excellent mystery. It was steamier than the first but still pretty light, a lot of build up and growing attraction. I like the world building and commardary being built in the Hawk Elite world. Glad I continued reading this series and hope the see the writing improve even further in the next.
I received a copy of this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.
If he didn’t stop creating these intimate moments between them, she might have to jump his bones.
