    MUST READ

    This is more like 4.5 stars....I LOVED THIS BOOK. I can't wait to see what else this author comes up with. I was surprised to find out this is her debut book. This book has it ALL. I was hooked from the first few pages when Olivia showed she was a pilot not to be messed with. Olivia is a strong woman full of spunk and sass with the know-how to back it all up. Rico is a tough as nails DEA agent that is sexy, with a killer smile and to many secrets for him not to be irresistible. The secondary characters were just as much fun to read about. Mouse is a KICK!! I was so happy for his own happy ending. This book had non-stop action and some steamy hot sex scenes. The banter was refreshing and Rico and Olivia had great chemistry. My only complaint about this book, was it ended rather abruptly. I am hoping that means we are being set up for another book :)

    Good

    ## This book is good, but it could have been better. First and foremost: I loved the heroine. She was strong, capable, beautiful and smart. So many authors write needy heroines and it drives me crazy. The military aspect was great, as was the story line. I was definitely anxious to see what happened next. The things that bothered me were: the hero was just so-so, not sure I liked him. The sex scenes ended so suddenly, I was never sure if they completed the task so to speak. And the ending was terrible. Much too abrupt. I think this author's writing stlye needs a little work. Not the best, but not the worst.

    Rita Henuber delivers a smart, sexy and dangerous tale with Under Fire!

    Commander Olivia Carver is a top notch helo pilot for the US Coast Guard but when the authorities fail to take down her twin brother's murderer she heads to Miami looking for answers herself. There she meets a sexy local, Rico Cortes. Having a bit of a dry year and feeling an instant attraction to the sexy and funny dark haired stranger, Olivia ends up spending the night in his apartment. When she returns to her assignment though, taking down a drug runner off the coast she finds out the Rico is really an undercover DEA agent and crap literally hits the fan. With a traitor in their midst Rico and Olivia decide to go in on their own to take the drug cartel down and find the bad cop, who is also responsible for her brother's death.

    Olivia was one kick butt heroine in Under Fire! Referred to as the 'Poster Girl" for the USCG she is beautiful and capable. Trained for deadly combat in the air and on the ground she knows how to take care of herself but is not lacking with a sensitive female side that shines through every now and then, at the best moments I must add. Her relationship with Rico was scorching with sexy dancing, sizzling innuendos and scorching love scenes I couldn't get enough of these two. Rico himself was hot, dangerous and oh so swoon worthy. A great match for Olivia both physically and mentally.
    The plot was well thought out, detailed and realistic; you can tell the author really knows her stuff with the military and government agencies. At times it got a bit too detailed and went over my head but this didn't distract from the overall story line. Action packed and fast moving I read this in one sitting. There were several scenes that seemed to be cut short though, missing out on a few important points I felt; I'm not sure if this is because what I read was an ARC or if it will be in the final product.
    The one thing that brought this down a full star for me and somewhat ruined the novel for me though was the ending. It was abrupt and felt unfinished. I have no idea if these two are going to make it together or even if one will survive. A real disappointment for me and extremely frustrating in what would of otherwise been a superb read.
