    Super sexy, tortured Alpha male? I'm there!

    Subject: Totally buff ranger Gage Harper Current Status: Walking wounded—both physically and mentally

    Mission: Finally get the girl he could never have

    Obstacle: She may just be the biggest risk he's ever taken

    All returned POW Gage Harper wants to do is forget, even if he has to let some gym rat beat him to a pulp to do it. He certainly doesn't want to tell the tale of his heroism to the tabloids. Especially since he's no hero¬Ö. But one journalist is determined to get the inside scoop-and she's the only girl Gage has never been able to resist.

    Hope Rawlings never took Gage's romantic advances seriously growing up. After all, she was just his buddy, and a guy like Gage could have any girl he wanted. But now she needs his story to get her dream job in the city. And she's willing to do anything to get it.

    REVIEW: You know, I’ve never read a book of Ms. Sinclair’s and if anyone follows the amount of reading I do, do, you’d understand that as a shocker. Reading over 125 books a year, I opened this one and for the rare times I am able to say this, couldn’t put it down!

    The premises and plot of this story was unbelievable, and in a good way! I loved the in-depth characterization Kira was able to develop and found the building of the relationship between the hero and heroine just right. It wasn’t too rushed, nor did you feel like things were dragging out.

    In my experience the whole childhood love thing is often looked at as overused, but that wasn’t the case in this piece. It was all very well played out and I found my heart aching for them both. It took me about four hours to read this and when I was done, I wanted to read it all over again.

    If you are looking for great action, read-worthy angst, and hot, sensually raw scenes, then pick this one up! I’ll warn you now though, have the fan and ice ready though, because this gets HOT!

    Five out of five stars for a job well done.
