Very good book. Easy flow to story with interesting characters to bring the action forward. Started one night and finished next . I like strong military characters and this book has plenty of them. Will have to read those that came before. Home grown terror is everywhere now and this story relates how it can come from anywhere at all.

Hot Velocity Elle James Hot Velocity is the fourth book in the Ballistic Cowboy series by Elle James. It is a suspense filled with a lot of action, corrupt politicians, a crazy ex-husband and the chance for love by the main characters It opens with an event straight out of today’s headlines and grabs you from page one. Rex Trainor is a Marine on loan to Task Force Safe Haven. He is unattached and plans on staying that way. He doesn’t want to put any woman through the stress of being a military wife because he knows what could happen. He is in Grizzly Pass to try and find out where a group of domestic terrorists, the Free America group, are hiding crates of AR-15 rifles and what they plan on using them for. Along the way, he helps Sierra Daniels, a daycare worker who is being stalked by her abusive ex -husband. Posing as her boyfriend, Rex protects her from her ex and tries to fight the feelings he is beginning to develop for Sierra while trying to solve the case. During a trip To Old Faithful, Sierra, along with the chaperones and children are taken hostage by the Free America group. It is now up to Rex and the other men of the Task Force to rescue them and stop the terrorist’s plot before it is too late. Both Rex and Sierra have a lot of baggage they have to work through in order for their relationship to potentially continue. Both are fighting the attraction they feel as a result. The other storyline of domestic terrorism is very timely. This book is a real page turner. While it is the fourth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I highly recommend this book and series.

Hot Velocity is the last novel in the Ballistic Cowboy series. This is the first novel in the series that I've read, but it won't be the last! Even though it is the last novel in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone novel. There are brief references to other couples, but the story stands on its own. Sierra is a preschool teacher who is constantly being harassed by her ex husband. Sierra's marriage started off well, but soon turned abusive. During one such confrontation, T-Rex comes to Sierra's rescue. T-Rex, on loan to Homeland Security, is in town investigating a Hometown Freedom America group. Suspicious activity around a pipeline and missing AR-15's have T-Rex and his team searching for their "stash". On his way to a meeting, T-Rex witnesses Sierra being pulled by her hair into a truck. While helping her, her ex assumes T-Rex is Sierra's new boyfriend. Sierra and T-Rex decide to pretend they are a couple in hopes that her ex will leave her alone. As they get to know each other, Sierra and T-Rex wonder if they should give love a shot. T-Rex, a career military man, doesn't believe he's the man for Sierra. He doesn't think he can give up the military life or put a woman through the possible heartache of him dying while on a mission or coming back half a man. Sierra thinks that T-Rex may be just the man to boost her confidence and get her back into the dating scene, except she starts to fall for him. Now she just has to convince him to give love a shot. There's mystery, home-grown terrorist groups, corrupt politicians, and a lot of Alpha maleness! This novel also portrays a heroine who is loving, kind, caring, and unselfish. She willingly places herself in danger to save one person or the other. I love a strong woman!!! I can't wait to go back and read the rest of the series! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Hot Velocity is the 4th book in the Ballistic Cowboys series and the first book I have read ….while reading this book which like the others is a stand-alone I think going back to read the other books in the series will help with some of the questions I didn’t understand….. Rex (T-Rex) Trainor, a Marine combat commander has been placed on loan with the Department of Homeland Security in Montana while waiting to get back with his command after a mission went bad. T-Rex and Homeland Security know that Freedom America is a homegrown terrorist group who may be storing weapons in caves in and around the area. This group has been illusive so far but……when he comes to the rescue of Sierra Daniels things start coming to light. Sierra Daniels recently divorced her abusive husband is determined to begin her life again on her terms. She is a daycare provider and is determined to keep the children safe after a bus they were on was hijacked (from a former book). While outside with the children her ex shows up and threatens her and is determined to make her come back to him…..but T-Rex happens along and things do not go as planned for her ex. While things heat up between Sierra and T-Rex, her ex is determined to get her back at all costs…will T-Rex save Sierra and the children from Freedom America after they are taken hostage? Will he be too late to save them? Will he and Sierra find their HEA or go their separate way? Intrigue, heart pounding suspense, hostages and questions that will be answered …are just a few of the things happening while reading this book! !

Sierra has been beaten down by her ex-husband, but she won't stay down. She is much stronger than that. Rex won't stand for a man abusing a woman and when he comes upon a guy dragging a woman by her hair, he puts a stop to it. I like Sierra and Rex. Sierra doesn't realize her own strength, but Rex sees it immediately. Rex is dealing with some PTSD and wants to go back and get the bad guys. He may never find the same guys that ambushed his unit, but he sure wants to try. After meeting Sierra, he questions his need to get back there

Wow! If you are looking for action and suspense to go along with your romance, this is the book to read. T-Rex and Sierra have great chemistry. Ok, they also have instalove. That was surprising seeing as how Sierra was recently divorced from her abusive ex, and T-Rex was feeling some guilt about his last deployment. I loved how Sierra was strong, tough, and independent. Yet, she had no reluctance in allowing Rex to look out for her. I was holding my breath through the action sequences. I would definitely recommend this book. I voluntarily read and reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy.

Another great read by Elle James! Grabs you on the first page and doesn't let go till the last. Suspense, intrigue, romance, scorching sheets, and most importantly to me, characters you can care about. Highly recommend. I was fortunate enough to receive this arc and volunteered to give my opinion.

Another wonderful romance from Elle James! (T-Rex) Trainor, a Marine on loan to Homeland Security, is one of the good guys. He for dang sure doesn’t like for men to beat up on or abuse a woman in any kind of way. If he sees it happening, he is going to step in and take care of it. That’s how he met Sierra Daniels, the daycare worker, when her awful ex-husband, couldn’t listen to reason and wouldn’t leave her alone. T-Rex and Sierra have some instantly good chemistry. Neither know if they really should be involved in a romantic relationship, but can’t seem to stay apart. There is lots of intrigue and action in how their story unfolds. I really enjoyed this story and the other three books in the Ballistic Cowboys series.

Mysteries are unraveled and danger continues to mount as we take another delve into the mysteries surrounding Elle James's Ballistic Cowboys series. This entire series has been a really attention grabbing plot and I've really enjoyed it! Rex "T-Rex" Trainor has been on loan to Homeland Security for a little while now trying to help the task force that is trying to figure out who is setting their sights on doing devious missions in the hills of Wyoming. He's just biding his time until he's sent back to his Marine team for his next mission, but he's in the right place at the right time to help a beautiful woman in distress! Daycare worker Sierra Daniels can't believe how lucky she is when a huge muscular man comes to her rescue just when she needs it most, and he continues to do so every time she turns around. She knows she has a lot of baggage from her past, and she knows he's not sticking around for long, but she really likes this guy ... and what can having a little fun while he's in town hurt?

Hot Velocity is the fourth book in the Ballistic Cowboys series. It's a heart pounding, suspenseful story that brought about a resolution to the on-going mystery that connected all four books in this series. Each book can be read as a standalone, though. The first chapter hooked me – I couldn't believe how hard my heart was pounding as I read it. Rex Trainor (T-Rex) is a highly skilled combat veteran and former rodeo star. His last mission left one of his men badly injured. T-Rex has been temporarily assigned to the Department of Homeland Security in Montana until he rejoins his unit for his next combat mission. Sierra Daniels is recently divorced from her abusive husband. She works at the daycare where a bus load of kids was held captive in an early book in the series. When T-Rex comes across Sierra being manhandled by her ex outside the daycare he intercedes to save her. They're both staying at the same bed and breakfast and things heat up quickly between them. The suspense escalates rapidly when T-Rex and the other members of the DHS team find evidence of weapons being stored in caves outside of town. Then Sierra and the kids from the daycare are taken hostage while they are on a field trip – heart pounding suspense! We finally learn who has engineered all of the terrorist threats that were the underlying mystery in this series of books. It was a satisfactory resolution to the Ballistic Cowboys series and I enjoyed reading all of the books very much. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions***

This was another engaging book in Ms James’s series , Ballistic Cowboys. All of the main characters in the series are devoted military men on loan to Homeland Security. This one gives us marine commander, Rex Trainor/T-Rex, and Sierra Daniels, a daycare worker, recently divorced from her abusive husband. They meet when the ex assaults Sierra in front of the daycare and T-Rex comes to her rescue when he happens to be in the area. From the start there is chemistry. In addition to the romance side of the story, we have the Freedom America group who have been elusive to capture and are part of homegrown terrorists. For those that have read previous books in the series, questions that had been left unanswered, will be answered. But not without some suspense, bad guys, and a hostage situation. It was nice to revisit with some of the characters of the previous stories and see how they were doing. Aside from the entertaining factor provided by the book, it’s also a story about the choices the enlisted have to make when it comes to their dedication to the military, as well as the effects their work has on their future and present families. Everyone has to make sacrifices but love and dedication can overcome them all. I was gifted this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
