My Five Star Review:

Julie Ann Walker is the Master at story telling and this 10th book in her Black Nights Inc Series is another hit!!  The chemistry between Black Nights Operative Dagan Zoelner and CIA Agent Chelsea Duvall makes it a perfect read for the 4th of July week.  There is nothing better than a good book with a strong male character trying to come to terms with his feelings for an equally strong female.  It is truly a joy to watch these characters work through the chemistry and come out better people in the end.

The action continues with the quest to find out who “Spider” is.   Christian, Emily, and Ace join in on the action and we also get to meet Rusty.   Sparks do a little flying between Ace and Rusty which I’m going to love watching.  The continued sexual tension and banter between Christian and Emily made me laugh quite a few times.  I am very much looking forward to the next book in this series, Hot Pursuit (Christian and Emily’s book)  coming in October 2017.

I would highly recommend Fuel for Fire and the entire Black Night’s Inc. Series.  You will not be disappointed.

The third left him wondering…what if? What if he had told the woman of his dreams how he felt before his world fell apart?

Spitfire CIA agent Chelsea Duvall has always had a thing for bossy, brooding Dagan. It’s just as well that he’s never given her a second look, since she carries a combustible secret about his past that threatens to torch their lives…

Heart Strike (Delta Force Book 2) by M. L. Buchman

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.

Rescued from an icy mountaintop by a Delta operative, Melissa Moore has never met a challenge she can’t conquer. Not only she will make Delta Force, she will be the best female warrior in The Unit, and woe to anyone who says otherwise. Technical wizard Richie Goldman is Bond’s “Q” turned warrior. A genius about everything except women, he takes point on the team’s most dangerous mission yet. When the Delta Force team goes undercover in the depths of the Colombian jungle, surviving attacks from every side requires that Richie and Melissa strike right at the heart of the matter…and come out with their own hearts intact.

My Five Star Review:

As many of you already know, I never include spoilers in my reviews and I’m going to do my best to relay to you how much I absolutely loved this story without giving too much away. So here goes:

Fifteen years ago Jack Spiers lost his wife, Army Captain Leslie Spiers in Iraq. That’s when Jack made the decision to kick start his political career in hopes of changing the world and making it a better place.  Now he’s the President of the United States and he’s ready to start his first year in office.  Jack is a people person and he finds out pretty quickly that his job doesn’t really leave him time to have friends or get close to the people.  He has staff, cabinet members, but not anyone to bounce things off of or hang out with and it’s causing him some issues. On top of all that, he is major peace talks with the other world leaders.

Secret Service Agent Ethan Reichenbach spent 10 years in Army Special Forces and now is starting his 12th year with the Secret Service as lead security detail for POTUS.  Ethan is a bit of a loner, no family, no boyfriend, but he does have a few close Secret Service friends. He’s never been one to look for love or even think he needs love in his life.  Ethan is the job and he loves the job but everything changes one night at the White House.  The President needs a friend and Ethan can’t help but break every Secret Service rule there is to be a friend to Jack.  A couple months later and Ethan does something he never thought he would ever do.  He falls in love with straight, once married man and President of the United States, Jack Spiers.

Tal’s writing in relation to the build up of these two men falling in love is outstanding. You can feel all the emotions from each character and how they each feel from their different perspectives.  It is absolutely beautiful to read. Tal also gives an amazing political-military story that forced me to keep turning every page causing me to finish the novel in one day. It is really that good.  I am a huge fan of military type books with strong men saving the world and falling in love, and I really don’t care who they fall in love with.  It’s the heart and soul that picks who we love and sometimes we have absolutely no control over it.

By the time I reached the end of the book, I was praying there would be a book 2 and I hear we may see more of Ethan and Jack this year.  I will keep you posted.

More About Enemies of the State:

A rogue Black Ops unit with the president in their crosshairs.
A Secret Service agent who will break every rule.
A president falling for the one person he shouldn’t—a man.

Newly elected President Jack Spiers’s presidency is rocked from the very beginning, and he’s working furiously to keep the world from falling apart. Between terrorism attacks ripping apart Europe, Russia’s constant posturing and aggression, and the quagmire of the Middle East, Jack is struggling to keep his campaign promise—to work toward a better, safer world.

For Special Agent Ethan Reichenbach, Jack is just another president, the third in twelve years. With Jack’s election, he’s been promoted, and now he’s running the presidential detail, which puts him side by side with Jack daily. He’s expecting another stuffed suit and an arrogant DC politician, but Jack shocks him with his humor and humanity.

There are rules against a Secret Service agent and one of their protectees developing a friendship—big rules. Besides, Jack is straight as a ruler, and a widower, and Ethan has always avoided falling for straight men. Ethan keeps his distance, but Jack draws him in, like gas to a naked flame, and it’s a lure he isn’t strong enough to turn away from.

As the two men collide, rules are shattered and the world teeters on the verge of war, and a rogue Black Ops unit bent on destruction sets Jack in their deadly crosshairs. Ethan must put everything on the line in order to save the man he’s come to love, Jack’s presidency, and the world.
