Overview

For fans of Maya Banks’ KGI series, prepare to meet the men of the Delta Force Brotherhood, a sexy new contemporary series where kicking ass and living hard is just how they roll.

Ex-special forces ranger Dylan McCourt is a stone cold killer who cares only about his military brothers and doing what’s right. He’s used to giving orders and has zero patience for bullshit. Most people tremble when they look him in the eye, but not his infuriatingly sexy new rescue mission, Jessie Lyon. She just juts her chin and says she’s not leaving without clearing her father’s name, to hell with his rules. And was that a one finger salute he sees in her eyes or his imagination? Either way, he knows this is one job his training might not have prepared him for.

Rating: 4.5 Stars Dylan McCourt is in charge of his domain. And he’s a man of many talents. Jessica “Jessie” Lyon is in a real pickle and she needs Dylan’s level of expertise to keep her safe. It has plenty of action, suspense, twists and turns to keep you riveted from beginning to end. This also shows how fast our lives can change. I was impressed that Jessie didn’t let her situation get her down. She used it to her advantage. Ms. Nantus has created two main characters with strong personalities. This can be a good thing and it can be a bad thing. It’s one that you will go back and forth on from beginning to end. But one thing I loved was how she made an alpha male willing to open himself to possibilities. But just like most males, he thinks he knows what’s best for the woman – some men never learn. Many years ago, I had the chance to go to Atlantic City. Went to one of the many casinos and it taught me two things. First, I’m not much of a gambler. Two, I know where all the losers go while waiting for the bus to take them back to their hotel. This book would have made my wait so much more enjoyable. As I was reading, it had me reminiscing about some of my favorite old shows – this would fit in perfectly. The author does such a great job of creating her scenes that you’ll have no trouble seeing the story play out in your mind. It’s a story of patience. Nothing is revealed too soon which kicks up the suspense. We all love our happy ending and you kinda get one here. But it also gets you ready for the next book, which I was happy to see. If this series were to come out on television, I would be a loyal fan. This just means that I will have to continue to read each book as they come out. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Received an ARC for voluntary review for netgalley. I enjoyed this book. Action packed, left you interested. Jessie was a badass and her Dylan were awesome together. Story kept you on your toes, wondering what is next and chemistry was hot. Loved the brotherhood and what they did for people, and what they represented, can't wait to read more from them.

New series which is a riff on the KGI series #HardPlay ‘Hard Play’ is a riff on the Maya Banks KGI series so if you like MB KGI books, you will love ‘Hard Play’ by Sheryl Nantus. The story line is simple-- Jesse's in trouble. She has been trying to take down a bad mobster and was really close to doing it before she was captured. She ended up setting up with her best friend a code in case something happened to her and if she didn’t check in with her by a certain time, her BFF would notify certain people and that would get her help. Help that can only come from a Brotherhood that bend rules to get things done. Dylan is the leader of the Delta Force Brotherhood. When Jesse’s BFF shows up , shows him a picture of her and explained the situation, he knew he has to be the one to step in and find her. Dylan finds her but something happens that requires even more of his help, otherwise Jesse’s life is forfeit in even more ways than just her breathing. Now Dylan has a new mission. Clearing Jesse's name...along with keeping her safe. This is a simple story- with just a few twists and turns. I enjoyed the chemistry between Jesse and Dylan and also enjoyed the secondary characters in this book. I cannot wait for more in future books. I wonder who gets the next book—Trey, Finn, Ace??? I also hope to see Dylan and Jesse back as well. My rating: 4.0 stars **** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Hard Play by Sheryl Nantus is a suspenseful read filled with intriguing characters, that will capture your attention. Jessie Lyon is a former detective who has gone missing. Her best friend contacts Dylan McCourt and his people to track her down and bring her home. Some really bad guys are holding her hostage, trying to make her break, but Jessie is a strong heroine. She doesn’t’ give up and isn’t about to give them the satisfaction of taking her out. Once Dylan sees a picture of Jessie, he’s hooked. He plans to go in, save her, and bring her underground. Things become more difficult when Jessie refuses to hide. She’s out for revenge and Dylan is going to help her. The chemistry between Dylan and Jessie is red hot and I loved seeing the Brotherhood put their skills to use. This book is a real page turner that will have you on the edge of the seat until the end. Looking forward to reading more!

This is the first book I've read by Sheryl Nantus but after reading this one I will be looking for more! This one is action packed from the very first page and it keeps going to the very last page. I simply couldn't put it down. A band of former Delta Force teammates have come together in a brotherhood to help people in need that have no other place to turn for help. The case they take in this book will put all their strengths to the test. Thinking it is a mere extraction case that should be a quick in and out was Dylan McCort's first mistake. Thinking he could resist the very tempting Jessie Lyon was his second. The writing, characters, and storyline in this book make it a must read. I highly recommend it.
