When his uncle is brutally murdered, Josiah King knows that business just got personal. His uncle's ties to the Alliance can mean only one thing: Josiah and his black ops team are targets, along with everyone they love. Primed for vengeance, Josiah is determined to unravel the plot--until long-legged redhead Sutton Dahl becomes a dangerous distraction.

Sutton is very good at uncovering other people's secrets—and protecting her own. When Josiah bursts into her life she's torn between pushing him away and asking for his help. Mysterious, strong, and much too sexy, he's a puzzle she longs to solve, and a temptation she can't ignore.

Thrown together in the face of Alliance's most lethal threat, Josiah and Sutton become unlikely partners, fighting for their lives even as the attraction between them flares into real passion. Torn between his team and the woman who means everything to him, Josiah will risk it all to save Sutton, even if that decision is his last.

Non stop action. I especially liked Sutton and Josiah together. One point in the plot that bugs me is how often the Alliance secret compounds could be compromised, it made MI6 & CIA trained agents look inept. Not to give anything away but I may not read the next book if it's about a certain agent even if I like him.

Josiah is forced to watch his Uncle murdered by the Alliance's arch enemy. In comes Sutton Dahl, who is also tracking the same man they are. Is she friend or foe, that is what they have to figure out. Strong story from beginning to the end. There's plenty of suspense, action and emotions. Another good installment in this series.

This is the third story in the sexy romantic suspense Bad Boys Undercover series, an exciting, nail biting story that kept me on edge from beginning to end. The Alliance, an undercover group made up of former MI6 and CIA operatives is under threat, this time from an old nemesis, Benton, a man they thought they'd killed but who turns up still very much alive. He's on a personal vendetta, to destroy each of the operatives one by one by threatening someone dear to them. But while Josiah and his crew are hunting him down, so is someone else, a woman whose mother died at the hands of this evil man. Sutton's investigation into Benton turns up some of his files, and her subsequent delving into what she finds leads the Alliance right to her. It's a game of cat and mouse, trust and deceit as Sutton and Josiah find that the sexual chemistry between them won't be denied. In a world of strange bedfellows, theirs might just be the sexiest pairing, but one that could get them killed. Ms. Dimon is masterful at creating fictitious worlds that rock both the suspense and the sexy edge looked for by readers in the romantic suspense genre. Her characters are strong, dependable,loyal, yet conflicted, with all too human flaws. Josiah definitely fits that description. As a leader on the team, he's ruthless and never afraid to do what it takes to get the job done. When he goes after Sutton, it's with the intent of finding out exactly what she's up to - he doesn't trust her, and she doesn't do anything to clear herself in his eyes, keeping her own counsel and not willing to reveal why she's after the same man he is. Soon enough though, Josiah's actions towards her show that he isn't a threat (even though he isn't sure of the same) and bit by bit they start to reveal more personal details to each other. I loved Sutton's strength, her unrelenting willingness to pursue her mother's killer on her own, and her ability to face her fears (of heights, for example) if it gets her closer to the truth. When Josiah and Sutton end up giving in to their attraction, their scenes are smoking hot! But beyond the sex, in the aftermath they become adept at comforting each other too, and it's this combination that draws them closer together. While Sutton and Josiah are getting emotionally attached, Benton's thirst for revenge is ongoing. We get to see the story from three points of view - Sutton, Josiah and Benton, which gives the story a great well rounded view and adds to the suspense level in knowing Benton's thoughts and plans. There is some violence in the story, as expected, and lots of twists and turns (and definitely events I didn't see coming). This story is my favourite so far in the series, and I'm looking forward to where it's headed next! 4.5 stars.

I have to tell you, I was a little leary going into Facing Fire. This book took me out of my genre comfort zone. I’ve never read a black ops novel, or any Delta teams, or with any undercover Alliance secret service kind of Arnold Schwarzenegger Action packed story before. So yeah, I was on pins and needles to start reading this book. But all my fears are over. Readers, I got to tell you that I love all this black ops and undercover stuff and the romance between Josiah and Sutton is definitely under the covers hot. I was so ready for Josiah King to come busting into my window and kidnap me. The sarcastic bantering between Josiah and Sutton is so good with these two. Sutton is one girl that can take on and face this big muscly, black ops guy with her sassy mouth, and the tough guy Josiah didn't know if she was naive, brave or just stupidly brave. Josiah and Sutton had me loving them from the beginning and laughing uncontrollably. Josiah has never had a woman to mess with his head as badly as Sutton Dahl does. Sutton has Josiah off his game so bad that he didn't know if he wanted to protect her or just take her out and he's not talking about a date. But, he did know he wanted her in his arms and in his bed like he had never wanted a woman in his life. Yeah, the woman was definitely messing with more than just his head. But there is some serious bad stuff going down. Josiah and Sutton find they both are right in the middle of it with a man named Benton, who is more evil than devil himself. Benton has hurt and destroyed the most important people in Josiah and Sutton's life, and it's this common ground that they both share with each other that pull Josiah and Sutton to have to work together before Benton destroys more lives. I am totally won over with the action genre now and can add it to my list of favorites to read. I truly love this tough, bad boy black ops, Josiah King. Josiah romances and loves just as hard as he works to take out the evil in this world. I highly recommend Facing Fire as a must read, action-packed romance that you will definitely want to add to your to-be-read list.

: 4stars--- FACING FIRE is the third full-length installment in HelenKay Dimon’s contemporary, adult Bad Boys Undercover romantic suspense series focusing on an undercover Black Ops organization known as the Alliance. This is Alliance operative Josiah King, and PI Sutton Dahl’s storyline. FACING FIRE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty although I would recommend reading the series in order for cohesion and backstory. Any important information from previous storylines is imparted where necessary. NOTE: There may be some spoilers in my review if you are a follower of HelenKay Dimon’s BAD BOYS UNDERCOVER series. At the end of FALLING HARD (BBU #2) the Alliance Team’s target is presumed dead and gone. Told from several third person perspectives FACING FIRE follows the Alliance Team as they are once again threatened by an enemy known only as Benton. Benton is seeking revenge against the Alliance Team for the physical and emotional damage caused when Benton survived a fiery explosion that left him scarred. Benton is evil; seeks world domination through chemical warfare and is offering a secret weapon to the highest bidder. When Benton targets Josiah King, Josiah loses someone close in the ensuing carnage and death. Enter Sutton Dahl-a woman hoping to get close enough to a man named Bane, to seek revenge of a different kind-but first Sutton must convince the Alliance Team that she is not partnered with Benton in his crimes against Josiah and the team. The attraction between Josiah and Sutton is immediate but Josiah does not trust Sutton as she keeps secret her need to make contact with Bane. Sutton’s connection to the Alliance Team proves dangerous when she is tagged by Benton in his plans for revenge and retribution. The $ex scenes are provocative and erotic but Josiah is slow to accept that Sutton does not mean any harm against the people with whom he works and loves. FACING FIRE is an ensemble storyline that includes several member of the Alliance Team whose relationship is that of family and friends. There is good natured camaraderie between friends; and heartbreak when one of their own sacrifices himself to save the others. The world building continues to focus on the assignments, and Benton’s need for global control. Benton is a man on a mission: the Alliance Team and everyone they love has been targeted in the name of revenge. FACING FIRE is a story of suspense, romance and intrigue: the premise is entertaining; the characters are animated and energetic; the romance is seductive. I was drawn into the storyline-became one with the characters-I felt their heartbreak and need.

Facing Fire is a fabulous romantic suspense. Intense action, will get your heart pounding with this the third installment in the Bad Boys Undercover series. Josiah's actions in the Alliance puts a target on his uncle's head. This means their amaninity has been broken and the ones they hold dear are now at risk. To save their loved ones they must track down their most deadliest foe. Sutton's undercover work puts her on the same path as the Alliance. But what they've tried to uncover, she has already found. Now they don't know if Sutton is working for the enemy or just a case of wrong place, very wrong time. It all comes down to Josiah deciding between the Alliance's or Sutton's safety. Facing Fire has marvelously conflicted but strong main characters that you can really get behind. Sexy, passionate and adrenaline increasing storyline make for great reading. I received this ARC copy of Facing Fire from Avon in exchange for a honest review.
