One year ago, David Church kissed a beautiful, brilliant woman on an airfield in Iraq-and hasn't stopped thinking about her ever since. Now, the military veteran gets a chance to rekindle that fire when he sees his lost love again-looking sexier than ever-at an international conference in Athens. David yearns to take her in his arms, to hold her close and never let go. But when the bullets begin to fly, it's not just his heart on the line. It's his life.
When Molly Solent agreed to deliver intelligence for the U.S. government, she didn't realize she'd be caught in the crossfire of a surprise ambush-and underneath the hard-muscled body of David Church. Shielding her from harm and swearing to protect her, the elite bodyguard reignites a searing passion that Molly can't resist. But with unforeseen danger around every corner-and unquenchable desire in every embrace-falling in love could be the greatest risk of all . . .

## AWFUL. This is my 2nd, and suffice it to say my final book by this author. If only I hadn't purchased them together. Lesson learned! Make sure you like the first one before you buy the next. Just because the synopsis is good, doesn't mean the book is. This hero David was so manipulative. He kept hoping he could make a "clean getaway" from the heroine. Gah, I couldn't stand him. And the political plot was boring as all get out. What a waste of time and money.
Emmy Curtis – Alpha Ops Series – Blowback - #4 As an avid reader and one who loves Emmy Curtis’s books, I do recommend her latest; BLOWBACK. From the first chapter it is filled with action, snipers, conspiracy, spies, and David and Molly on the run. The main characters are David Church and Molly Solent who we met in Book 3 PUSHING THE LIMIT. Molly is an archaeologist and she met David 1 year ago in Iraq. He kissed her on the tarmac and both David and Molly have thought of each every since. But, David said he would look her up and never did. Suddenly they meet again at a cocktail party in Athens where she is a guest speaker. Molly had agreed to pass a message to a Russian colleague for the CIA. As she is attempts to pass the message to him, he is taken out by a sniper. David is a body guard for one of the high level attendees and immediately took action to protect Molly and get her out of harm’s way. As David and Molly try and stay one step ahead of the Russians and the Greek police, they try and figure out what is going on and how can they get out of Athens and back to America. The “pull” that they seem to have will complicate things so they try and keep their focus on staying alive, until it seems impossible avoid the sizzle that burns between them. David knows that he is not right for her. He has to get his life back together and focus on his recovery. But, he decides that he will take one night with Molly if that is all he can get. I highly recommend this book… Don’t miss it. Issues: The previous 3 books had just the right amount of passion and sex scenes, this book may have gone overboard. I thought that maybe a few less scenes and a little more plot would have made this a 5 star book. You will enjoy this one; it’s just my opinion that a couple less sex scenes would improve the book.
A damaged hero and an idealistic heroine get caught up in an espionage plot with far-reaching consequences in this exciting new installment of the Alpha Ops series! BLOWBACK is an exciting combination of danger, intrigue and sexy interludes with a bold, fearless heroine and a flawed hero looking to redeem himself. I have enjoyed this series immensely and could not wait to get my hands on this book and honestly, because of how much time has passed since the previous book, I had to go back and re-read it to refresh my memory of Molly and David's meeting. Archaeologist Molly Solent is in Athens, Greece for a professional event and accepts a request to deliver a message from a government official to a Russian colleague who would also be attending the event, a decision which leads to murder and sparks an international incident, threatening US-Russia relations and she finds help from a very unexpected source - the one man who has been on her mind for the last year. David Church met Molly the previous year under very dangerous circumstances and hasn't forgotten her for one second, but he broke his promise to come look for her because he didn't think he could offer her anything more than a damaged and broken man. Seeing her in Athens is one highlight of his trip but when Molly narrowly escapes a bullet, David jumps in to get her to safety. Unfortunately, Molly has been named as a person of interest in a spy plot and is being hunted by both Russian intelligence and Greek law enforcement agencies and David is the only thing standing between her and an uncertain future and he is determined to protect her, even when she refuses to confide in him. Their bid to stay alive takes them from the busy streets of Athens to revered national monuments and everything in between as they find themselves exploring the steamy, sizzling chemistry between them. I really enjoyed both characters. Molly is gutsy and determined and does not give up on what she wants. One forehead kiss from David was all it took and she isn't going to give up on him now after having waited for a year. David is still ravaged by the losses in Afghanistan but for the first time in a long while, he has something to live for and it's amazing how he puts his military training to use, evading their pursuers. I love that Molly did not wait on David to do everything by himself, but was an equal participant in their escape from the authorities, even if she made a foolish choice that almost cost them dearly in her desire to protect David. I've said it before and will again: Ms. Curtis's writing is so rich and detailed and sucks you into the action and intrigue alongside the characters, which is why she is on my auto-buy list and this series is a must read!
