Heart Strike by M. L. Buchman is an action packed, military suspense romance with an explosive ending and lead characters you can’t help but fall in love with. This is book 2 in the Delta Force series and you can absolutely read it as a stand alone, which is what I did, but I do plan to pick up book 1 – Target Engaged.
Heart Strike Releases August 2, 2016
My Five Star Review:
This book has it all, strong Delta women in leading roles, strong Delta men trying to keep up with them, a mission, action packed gun fights, explosions, team conflict and let’s not forget the hot and steamy falling in love part.
M. L.’s writing is amazing. He puts so much detail into his stories that I always have a clear picture of the action and the scene before me. It is fast paced, the writing is easy to follow and it always leaves you wanting more of his stories!
I immediately loved Melissa “The Cat” Moore. She has a tough mission coming onto an established team and trying to determine how she fits in. This is also the team with the first female Delta Operator, Carla Anderson. I loved how the woman hit it off right away but I think that had a great deal to do with Carla. (Who was featured in the first book Target Engaged and who I need to read more about.)
Now Richie Goldman, the smartest soldier in the world (in my opinion), Mr. Geek who basically has a head full of knowledge and is also a major warrior, completely stole a place in my heart. I absolutely enjoyed this character and watching him fall in love with Melissa. His scenes are so much fun to read and I love the way his mind works. The Unit is extremely lucky to have him on their team.
As you can probable figure out, I enjoyed this story and I highly recommend it. Grab it, take it to the beach this summer, you will not be disappointed.
