Blind Ambition by Gwen Hernandez


Rescuing a kidnapped aid worker from St. Isidore's dangerous rebels is just another day at work for former pararescueman Dan Molina. But his mission falls apart when the woman-who once shattered his heart-refuses to leave the island.

Alexa Alyssandratos can't return to her life as a nurse on the hurricane-ravaged Caribbean island, but she won't leave until she's certain the orphans she cared for-especially one sick little girl-are safe from the rebels. Denied their ransom, a would-be dictator and his soldiers are hunting Alexa, and Dan is the only person who can protect her. Old passions reignite as she and Dan race to save the children before they disappear forever.

ARC given by the publisher in exchange for a honest review! This book was unlike anything I have read in the past, so it was refreshing to read something a little out of my comfort zone. I liked the characters, they had amazing chemistry and were very well written and researched. It is definitely one of those books that takes you on a emotional roller coaster, giving you moments of happiness, fear, heartbreak, excitement and a few blushworthy moments too! The storyline is action packed and very intense, it is one of those books that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and sometimes a little panic stricken that things are going to work out the way you'd like. Overall I really enjoyed this story and was glad I decided to venture outside of my comfort zone and try something new! Highly recommend this book!

I loved this story, I loved every single word of it. It took me for an emotional roll-a-coaster, from sheer happiness, to heartbreak, to fear, panic, anxiety and concern, to sorrow and suffering... The action is non stop, with new surprises behind every turn, that kept me on my toes, and biting my fingernails. There's no place that is safe, there's few people whom they can trust, they are against an army, with what at times feels like with their bare hands, and the fight is fierce. Fight to survive, stay alive, keep the others alive, without major injuries, it is intense. Alexa is making amends, for things that happened in her past, that she cannot forgive herself, or let herself enjoy life, or accept happiness. Cause she does not deserve it. She works fearlessly at the clinic, taking care of everyone, saving as many lives as she possible can. Three years ago, she fell in love, but had to walk away from the man she still carries in her heart, because where she was, and is, in her life, with her atonement of her past mistakes. Now that man is the one who can save her, save her from the certain death, give her her life back. Dan is a true hero, saving lives is what he lives for. He is honorable, kind, caring, and protective, a true warrior, with a tender heart. He has his past demons, but nothing has ever cut as deep as loosing the one woman he loved. The mistakes he made after the heartbreak cost him dearly, and now as he is working to get on with his life, he is called for a rescue mission, to save Alexa. While on the mission Dan and Alexa has to face their past, find a way to trust again, and a way to be truly honest with each other. The connection they have is scorching hot, the passion is palpable. But there's so much more between them than just passion, and the emotional journey they have to take while on the run, is so touching, tender, and wistful, it melted my heart. The rescue mission does not go as planned, or as I presumed. The intensity of the story keeps hold from the page one to the end. Dan and Alexa works on their issues hard, they humble themselves, let go of foolish pride, and make compromises, to try to make a future together. An amazing romantic suspense story with a military twist, that left me breathless. I will be looking for more books in this series in the future ~ Five Spoons!

It was a good story. Allyssa trying to save the children from harsh conditions in foreign condition. Dan works for a security firm. He is sent to bring her back home by her father, a billionaire. Alyssa had a fling three years before with Dan but her life's work is more important. Pushed together once more, Dan finds he still loves her but even though Alyssa loves him, she won't give up her work. The recuse by Dan and company keeps your attention as he tries to recuse Her and some of the children taken hostage.
