An ex-military love story between Blake former SEAL and single mother Tori. If Tori wants to keep her job she must interview Blake but there is a problem bleak doesn't do interviews and because her future depends on the job she jumps in a helicopter with Blake and their adventure begins. Their lives are jeopardized, bad men are after them and Blake has to make sure that Tori is not involved in some bad things. Of course in between the commitment-phobe and a girl who sworn off the military men's fall in love. I liked this story better than previous it is more interesting intense and I liked that is not predictable. There is action, in and out of bed and Tori and Blake have their HEA. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly
Tori Michaels is desperate. Her husband Ken, former military, suffered from PTSD and died leaving her the sole support of their son. Her boss has told her that unless she gets an interview with former SEAL Blake Sorenson, she will lose her job. She and her six-year old son Isaiah have already lost their home and now may be evicted from their rental. Tori takes a chance and gets in Blake’s helicopter as he is leaving to deliver supplies. Blake works for PTS security and the supplies are for the “safe house” where his company is protecting a man and his family. Even though he is attracted to Tori, when incidents start happening Blake wonders if Tori is after an interview or involved with the hate group. If this is only about the hate group, then why is Tori a target? Tori, although attracted to Blake, swore that she would never get involved with another military man…too much heartache. This is a wonderfully emotional story as Blake will go to great lengths to protect Tori and her son, while Tori finds strength that she did not know she had in the face of continuing attempts on their lives. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)
Book three of Hearts of Valor, gives us the story of former SEAL Blake Sorenson, one of the members of PTS Security. He’s a pilot with his own air charter company and a man many consider a hero. He’s private , divorced and has no desire to have a serious relationship. Tori Michaels is a single mom trying to make a living as a reporter so she can support her son and herself, a widow of a military man, and definitely has no desire to getting involved with another military man. She’s been assigned to interview Blake for a heroes magazine. Even when he refuses , she gets on his helicopter and that’s when the action starts. Too many near death experiences are happening. Is Tori a mole for the bad guys with the assignment of getting Blake killed, or did she just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? This is a story filled with action, bad guys, hunky good ones, and a guessing game of whodunit. The main characters, Tori and Blake are well developed as well as imperfect , which makes them more likable. Another engaging book by this talented author. I am looking forward to what else she has in store for us. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
