Foster Halsey has been burned by life, by love.

Recruited to the Task Force 779 elite team after a nasty divorce, Foster only wants to serve his country. He has no interest in anything except the art of explosives and saving lives. After nearly losing a team mate, and witnessing the pain his family went through, Foster is more determined than ever to remain unattached.

Until a mission sends his team to Mexico to rescue the estranged daughter of a CIA official.

Their attraction is explosive.

But she's been burned worse than him.

Everett Gaines was searching for answers.

After finishing college, Everett only wanted some R&R after a troubling discovery. She wanted to lay back on the beaches of Puerto Vallarta and enjoy some time alone. Life has a way of kicking her when she's already down though and soon she becomes the victim of a kidnapping.

Acts so violent and gruesome that she never imagined are forced upon her until a savior explodes through her prison door. After a failed escape, Foster vows to protect her at all costs. With risk to his own life, Everett see's something in the solitary man.

A longing to be someone's everything at a time when she needs him most.

One Explosive Encounter leaves them breathless and Foster wants more. But Everett pushes him away. Refusing to hear him out and why they could be more. Foster won't let go though and when sinister forces come rushing back, Everett is forced to rely on Task Force 779 to keep her safe.

After the pain ends and secrets come to light, will Everett still be alive to make the choice her heart desire's or will Foster be left an empty shell from a lost love?

Explosive Encounter by K.L. Donn a five-star read that explodes from the page. This is number two in the Task Force 779 series and you would enjoy reading them in order as there is some back story, but you don’t have to have read the series to enjoy this amazing story as K.L. Donn does a great job keeping you in the loop. Chaos, Chaos, Chaos you really do like to bring a bang don’t you, the only thing is can Everett Gaines cope with the bang? As poor Everett has been through so much that even the smallest bang could break her. I love how K.L. Donn writes female leads who may be broken but wont break. This is a great story and one I am sorry to have finished.

As with the first book in this series, I was completely consumed by Explosive Encounter. I knew that KL Donn could write stories that bring up some tough topics but she handles them with care. With Everett's story, she wrote an absolutely beautiful love story. She showcased this character's strength and determination and Foster's obsession and love. She keeps pushing forward and trusts her feelings when it comes to Foster. Her history with him allows her to let him close when it would be impossible with any other man. I loved that this story was overflowing with hope and love even in the face of some serious problems. I love this series and I adore KL Donn, her talent knows no bounds and I am a fan for life!

Explosive Encounter was very dynamic and lived up to the hype that the previous book set up. Foster and Everrett have it rough from the start. But, a bond was forged in that hellhole and a bond like that quickly shows you who you can trust and who you can’t. Even with that trust established, there are still some issues that they encounter as two people wanting to be together. Foster and Evie together are a dynamic couple. I loved how the story played out and how the bonds between the team seemed to leap off the pages. Everrett never experienced that type of relationship before and there would be no better group to bring her out of the darkness left by her horrible experience. No one should have to pull themselves from the darkness alone. Foster and the guys were right there in the darkness and made sure they remained with her and each other as support. The giddiness I felt reading Foster and Evie’s story made the story itself fly by because I just couldn’t put it down. There were times when I couldn’t even breathe and then times where I couldn’t turn the page fast enough. This story like its previous is above any expectations that I had. I can’t wait for the next book to release because if it is going to be like its series partners then it will be even better than Explosive Encounter!

Grips you and never let's go! KL kept me on my toes through the entire book! From beginning to end we are taken on an emotional, heartbreaking, torturing, loving ride with no time to breathe. It literally took my breath away! Can't wait for what's to come!

Hot damn! This was explosive! I have been waiting forever for this story and it did not disappoint. Again, KL Donn has a way with words that suck you right in and doesn't let you go until it's done messing with all your feelings. Gah, the connection between Evie and Foster is just what I needed. There's action but also mystery and the sexiness you expect from KL Donn's men. I couldn't put it down and was actually left wanting more. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

I am loving these guys of Task Force 779 from KL Donn! In the second book in the series we get to go along for the ride of Foster and Everett coming together. Foster has been burned by relationships in the past and isn't planning on going down that road again, that is until he meets Everett. Everett meets Foster and the rest of the 779 guys during the worst time in her life and yet Foster left his mark with her. I am in awe of the story that is their journey and can not wait to go along for the next ride from this task force. The men in this unit are elite and the best of the best so their counterparts compliment them so well so far!

This story totally pulled at my heart strings. Everett has been through something unimaginable, but stands tall as she tries to navigate her way through life. Foster saved Everett and was there for her at her worst. They both feel a connection between them. Even as time passes, they still feel it and Foster is determined not to ignore it. Foster and Everett form a beautiful relationship together, it took time but they do get there. Of course, Everett is still finding out who she is and they do go through some ups and downs. I love the suspense and mystery in this book. It keeps you turning the pages to find out what happened and who is behind what. This series is fantastic and cannot wait to read book 3.

I have made no secret about how much I love this author and I get super excited every time she releases a new book. This time is no exception!! Foster and Everett meet in the worst kind of circumstances imaginable, but he feels a connection and will do anything to protect her. Secrets are exposed, lives blown wide open. It will take Foster and his team everything to bring this to an end and keep Everett safe. My heart! This book gave me ALL THE FEELS! Inhaled in one sitting because once started there was not a snowflake's chance in hell I was putting this down!! Fully invested!!! This author delivers, every, Damn, time!!

Evie and Foster’s story is simply fantastic. Super emotional? Yes! But, fantastic. Explosive Encounter is the second book in the Task Force 779 series. I am in LOVE with this series. I love Alpha male books and a good heroine in danger that still has a badass side. KL Donn never ever disappoints with her plots, her worlds or her characters. Reading one of her books feels like a personal journey you go through yourself. That’s how good she is at pulling you into a story. This book is one that once you start, you just can’t stop. So, remember that before you even read that first word. Get comfy, because you won’t be moving until you’re finished.

So good! I think Foster is complicated. He is well written and so great for Everett. Lots of action and suspense. Everett has lots of emotional hurdles to overcome. The trauma is well written and Everett is an extremely strong character. There’s a little bit of separation,mostly due to a misunderstanding. Ares is a wonderful secondary character, I so hope he gets a story. I can’t wait for more!
