My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A copy of this ebook was provided for me via Netgalley for review - in exchange for an honest review.
I loved that there was a lot more action in this book, plenty of suspense to keep the story moving. The action is fast paced and having it set in Afghanistan (I want to say Afghanistan) makes it relevant to now. I'm by no means an authority of women in the military, but it's always refreshing to see - even if Victoria is on the wrong side of it at the moment. She's a kick arse character that can take care of bid'ness. She's strong and I think Harris does well to portray that and her loyalty to family. She'd do anything for her sister, even to the point that she puts her own life on hold.
Even though I liked Victoria and Nick together, and their scenes together were well done, I felt that the love side of things was quite rushed. I would've been happy for a HEA without declarations of love, but that's just me. I could quite possibly be become a cynical old biddy in my old age ;)
Nick was everything I like from my heroes - smart sexy and not too in your face alpha - he wants to take care of Victoria, but he also knows that she can take care of herself. And I like how this seems to be a consistent character trait for Harris' heroes.
Overall, this was another fun foray into the world of HOT and I'm looking forward to reading more from the series in the future. Again, this could be read as a standalone novel, but why would you want to miss out on the HOT fun!
