Falling for the enemy...

K19 Security Specialist Gunner Godet is so deep undercover that nobody on his team knows where he is or what he's signed up for.  And now that he's vowed to help a sexy and mysterious woman from the dirtiest Russian organization in all of Eastern Europe, his only chance at survival lies in her hands—and arms. Luckily, Gunner refuses to give his heart to a woman ever again. Otherwise, he'd be in more danger than he ever imagined.

Zaryana "Raketa" Ivashov wants out—out of the game.  But pulling out of this "political party" means defecting and trusting an enemy.  As Gunner and Raketa journey for safety, their attraction grows stronger, their passion undeniable.  But can two sworn enemies find happiness in a world of danger and betrayal? 

While each book in the K19 Security Solutions Series is a standalone with its own HEA, they may be more enjoyable read in order.

4.5 Stars This is book 2 in the K19 Security series and it features Raketa and Gunner. The first two chapters of this book feel kind of chaotic. After that the story line smooths out. There’s still a lot of information to process and lots of characters to keep track of throughout the book. The mystery and suspense has you on the edge of your seat and the spy game is on point. I love to see these big bad alpha men fall for that one woman that’s meant only for them. I can’t wait for the next book in this fantastic series.

I really like this book. It has the right amount of action with enough suspense and twist and turns to keep it interesting. It was a very enjoyable story. I like how Gunner is strong and yet so vulnerable. He is open to showing his emotions. Discussing his feelings with the guys on the team takes a strong man. Reketa is a cold hard killer, yet is sensitive, soft and feisty. She doesn't want to care yet she can't stop it. The plot is well written with suspense, mystery, romance, and so much emotion. Even though this can be read as a stand alone, I love returning to visit with the team. I can't wait to read more from this series.

And a man fighting to keep her safe and protected. Full of mystery, secrets, suspense, dangerous secret government agencies, a mad man, fear, doubt, passion, and love. Another great new read from Heather Slade, Gunner will have reader entertained from beginning to end. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

First things first!! I loved seeing Gunner come unglued especially after Lena. Everyone is hooking up and everything about their team, the original team that is, is changing. Gunner doesn't understand I mean come on he's a mans man and only missions count and let's just bypass the pleasantries and get down to business. Are you still talking?? Is there a point?? You must not be talking to Gunner cos you're still standing. Yeah all man. But when the mission goes sideways and helping a friend becomes more. Between his secrets and here's there's some huge gaps and issues that have to be worked out. Can two that have always kept things close to the vest really open up and give room for trust to grow. It's not a question and for them it's something that if they want it bad enough it will have to happen and soon. There are lives at stake and the stakes are growing by leaps and bounds. Love it this author doesn't skimp on intrigue, action or passion. The passion doesn't steal the show though not like these hunks of Alpha and the women they love. . . which now include kids. Gunner is screwed, well the old Gunner is.

A really good romance with lots of heat. ❤️️❤️️ When Gunner first meets Raketa, she takes his breath away but they don't have the time or the chance to do anything about it as they are both in the middle of a mission. On opposite sides. Over the years though, they begin to trust each other and help each other out. What Gunner doesn't realize is that Raketa fell in love with him at first glance. Now, he's realizing that he's got some pretty strong feelings for her too and to complicate things, he has to take her underground to protect her after rescuing her. ❤️️ I adore this series! This book is the second in the K19 Security Solutions and is a continuation of the Butler Ranch series. This whole series has been well written and developed. Each book does add on to the book before but it can easily be read as a standalone. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Gunner and Raketa are quite the couple and this book is an adventure between the pages. Out of all of the ladies in this series I have to say I am most drawn to Raketa and not just because she is one strong lady, but because when she is with her man she lets her softer side come out and shows that leading the life of an agent hasn't hardened her. it was a challenge to figure out all of the foreign names and places but at the same time it is so interesting to be able to visit them through the authors words and descriptions, Loosing yourself in the characters, places and events that take place is why I enjoy reading so much and I hope you are able to find as much pleasure in this book as I have.

The second book in the K19 Security Solutions is as good as the first. This spin-off from the Butler Ranch series lives up to my expectations based on reading Heather Slade’s other books. Gunner turns out to be quite the romantic in spite of Raketa’s mistrust. There is plenty of action, mystery and romance to make this a good story. The characters have depth and likeability. Definitely a recommended read on my list. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

Gunner and Raketa's story was so good! I loved not knowing which of the characters in the story could be trusted, and I was surprised by the twist at the end. This is an awesome series! I always look forward to the next release so that I can get updates on all of the K19 partners. I am intrigued by Monk, and I really hope he gets his own story. I voluntarily read & reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy from Booksprout.

Zary is a perfect match for Gunner in every way! Even though they "met" years ago on opposite sides of a rifle scope, these two instinctively knew right then that they each would have a significant impact on the other's life. Their work for different intelligence agencies kept them apart for a long time, but finally, after the revelations in Razor's story about who Makar Petrov really is and that he has kidnapped Zary (code name Raketa), Gunner is ready to pull out all the stops and make her his. If he can get there in time. As with the previous books by this author, this is a standalone romance set in a larger world of international criminals and the men and women tasked with bringing them to justice. K19 is neck-deep in Petrov's affairs already, so they're on the move to track him down at any cost. Gunner's romance with his Rocket Girl develops against the edge-of-your-seat action and suspense, and it's breathtaking in its depth and scope. These are two people who have been damaged almost beyond repair, yet they dive headfirst into a love so deep, so consuming, that it's all they can do to come up for air long enough to stay alive. The story has a wonderfully satisfying HEA, leaving us cheering for the entire K19 team and looking forward to the next story in this amazing series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

GUNNER is the second book in the K19 series by Heather Spade. It is a story of love, defection, double agents and intrigue. It is a standalone book; however, the story would be more enhanced by reading Razor first. Racketa is a defecting Russian agent/assassin who has a price on her head but is also the daughter of a man wanted by numerous countries. The author does an excellent job of weaving a tale that keeps you guessing until the very end. There are many threads to this story and Ms. Slade manages to tie them together in a tightly knit fashion. While it is fiction, the plot is filled with many agencies that are the enforcers of the world: MI6, CIA, the equivalent of the KGB, just to name a few. Well written and romantic without graphic sex! 5 stars all the way! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
