This is not your typical romance read - it's a page turner with lots of excitement and interesting unseen twists. From page one, I was immediately sucked into the action packed storyline. McClellan does a great job of building a heroine that totally combines the femme fatale with the psyche of your best friend; basically Jason Bourne meets Tomb Raider. The romance feels real, not cliché, and connected to the story without overdoing it. I dove in and had a hard time putting it down until I devoured every word. There were some great twists that I didn't see coming which is unusual for most novels I read. I highly recommend picking up this read if action adventure with a sultry sexy side is up your alley.

Eva is a an undercover agent for a private agency. She is good at what she does and wants the chance to prove herself. Until thoughts of her trainer/ex boyfriend get in the way. Quinn just can't help himself but interfere. Eva is still upset that Quinn left her, and Quinn can't help but beat himself up trying to determine why they should stay apart. When they get put on the same job thinking it is going to be a easy babysitting job, boy do things just start to go wrong. Great book. The author keeps you interested. It is suspenseful and you just can't quite tell what is going to happen next. You can tell both Eva and Quinn are trying to fight their attraction, but not quite succeeding.

Eva Torres is very good at her job for High-Risk Security. After all she learned from Quinn Blackwood and he's the very best. Now he is the director of South American rescue and recovery as well as her boss. Her last mission went badly. She blew her cover and could only rescue one of the FARC hostages. Felix Bennett is a famous scientist. Eva is determined to redeem herself but things keep getting worse. Felix and his daughter are kidnapped and the police think she did it. She is arrested. Frustrated she escapes. Quinn decides to help her. Now they are on the run. Can they locate the hostages and save them? Can Eva and Quinn put their past behind them? This is an exhilarating adventure filled with danger and intrigue. Eva is an edgy character who's strong and determined. She can and does take care of business. Quinn is fierce warrior who's weakness is Eva. Their past romantic involvement and their current attraction kept me riveted. The author does a wonderful job keeping the reader off balance. The twists and turns never stop, but the author saved the biggest surprise for the end. I love that Quinn treats Eva as his equal. He may want to protect her but he let's her do it herself. I loved Risking It All For Her Boss. It left me wanting more.

Heroes for Hire: Risking It All for Her Boss For anyone who has been following my reviews, you know that I have been taking myself out of my "I hate romance" comfort zone this month. This is another one on my list. And, again, for anyone who has been following my reviews, no I did not choose this one for it's cover haha. When it comes to anything romance-based, I have to read the full book description (while, at other times, I either skim it or ignore it all together) because I need to know if it is actually something I will enjoy. This one, being under the genre of suspense, thriller and mystery, was right up my alley. I really liked the story when it came to the mission that they were on and the twist at the end - completely not what I expected. Once the cop shows up ... I sat there with my mouth wide open reading as fast as I could, completely shocked by the events that were happening on the page. My issues with the book didn't take away from my enjoyment of the suspense, but at the same time annoyed me to no end. First of all, Eva - oh my God!! Eva - she is probably one of the most annoying women I have ever read about in a book. Now, you may love her, and I won't blame you if you do, but to me, she was just too much. I get that she loved this guy and he hurt her and now they had to work together, but sheesh (You still worked together and he was one of your bosses, Eva, so you had to know that the possibility was there. And if he hurt you so bad, why do you keep throwing yourself at him, only to feel guilty afterwards?). I know I know, you're saying "Meghan, that's the romance part" and I get that, but it just didn't seem logical to me (but then maybe romance isn't supposed to be logical). Secondly, there are some editing issues, which didn't effect my rating, but this is the third book I've read from this publishing company and all three (different authors) had editing issues. Third, there was action throughout the whole thing, but it doesn't get really good until about the last maybe 75% and, as I've noticed with other books that are romance-based, everything is wrapped up into a pretty little box at the end (the happy ending/happily ever after thing) which is great and all, but it just seems a little TOO easy. Fourth, I think that the author spent too much time dealing with the romance part and not enough time with the rest. I think, if she had backed away a bit from all the longing for each other nonsense, making the romance more of a side note, that this would have been an even better book (but that is just my opinion.) Would I read another from this series? Yes. Would I suggest it to someone else? Yes. Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

What a powerfully intense suspenseful story!  This book grabbed me from the beginning.  I always love a story with a very strong female character.  One who can protect herself and the others around her.  Eva was a powerhouse woman!  I so want to be like her. She was strong and fierce and totally went on her gut instincts.  Then there is Quinn.  Wanting to protect Eva at all costs.  I liked the fast pace action of the story and the twists and turns of the plot.  The story kept me guessing until the end.  I had an inkling of who would end up being behind the whole situation, but didn't want to believe it.  I am just glad I was wrong in the other way I was thinking too.  Overall I enjoyed this story and would love to read more by the author.

I really liked this book - the story was good, with a lot of action and a sizzeling romance. Eva Torres is a HRS agent, who is specialised on the rescue of kidnap victims. when her current job does not go as it should, she gets a dull job of escorting her victim home and to her intense displeasure her former boss and lover, Quinn is monitoring her success. but the job is not what it seems and Eva and Quinn have to work together to successfully finish the mission this was my first book by Sharron McClellan but definitely not my last! I enjoyed everything in there - the story, the action and the romance. the characters were really interesting and believeable - especially in their history together and how this would influence their decisions. I loved the tension between them and how they worked through their differences. Although in the end, everything was a little bit to smooth for me - but that is ok Eva is a strong-willed and tough heroine but also has a lot of compassion. Quinn is quite stoic but behind the facade he is the perfect guy. I loved the story line: there was a lot of action, twists and turns and it was perfectly paced. the dialogues were excellent and funny. this is a stand-alone but I really hope for another book in this series, as I would love to see some of the secondary characters and of course Eva and Quinn again Disclaimer: I received a copy for an honest review

***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review*** Quinn and Eva are one hell of a duo. They work in tandem with one another. At times, it felt like they anticipated each other's next move. Their past is always there during the story, showing up one way or another, whether it's in the form of a memory, a touch, or a sound. Their time apart is almost unnoticeable as their present is saturated with the desire that's simmering between them. It's a passion for each other that never died out. And I like that it's still there, burning in the background, waiting for that perfect moment to explode and burn brighter than before. What I had a hard time grasping/understanding was Quinn's inability to believe in Eva enough to let go of the rules. His mouth was saying one thing but his actions said another. It was frustrating to see those roadblocks knowing they were so easy to remove and wondering why he didn't just hang the rules and go with his gut. After all, Eva learned all she knew about being an agent from him. It should've been enough of a reason to have more faith in her and her ability to get the job done. And...yet I can't fault him his reasoning. Their past might be ever-present throughout the story, but the good part of their past is vastly overshadowed by a shared tragedy that ultimately led to their breakup. This is a fast-paced romantic suspense that Ms. McClellan filled with excellent dialogue, descriptions, action, and adventure. Every move Quinn and Eva made helped them face their past and a truth that was undeniable: their love for one another was all they would need to make it.

3.5 Stars This was a good story with lots of action and suspense. I love stories with a kick-ass heroine, and this one certainly did not disappoint with Eva Torres. From her background as an orphan who survived on the streets in Columbia, to her ability to master all the skills required to become a top operative, Eva was everything you want in a strong heroine. Up until the end, Quinn was just ok for me – I really found that I wanted to slap him half the time. The way he walked out on Eva and then continued to hide his feelings was just infuriating! It added a great dynamic to the story, but boy did he get me angry! On the one hand I loved the fact that his feelings for Eva were so strong he wanted to protect her, but on the other hand I wanted to get all up in his face and remind him that part of why he loves her is her strength and ability to take care of herself, so be her partner, not her protector! I was a little disappointed by the lack of spark and sizzle between Eva and Quinn for most of the book. I’m not sure why I never felt that over the top tension between the two characters that I really wanted to feel throughout the book. I don’t know if it was because there wasn’t a lot of back-story on their relationship (there was some, but maybe for me it wasn’t enough?), or perhaps it was that I never really got Quinn’s side of the heat, but it wasn’t until near the end when they got dirty and sweaty in the gym that I felt those sparks fly. I did enjoy the overall story and like the premise of the HRS organization, and look forward to reading the next installment in this series. I received an eARC from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

When High Risk Securities (HRS) agent, Eva Torres, botches an undercover job by failing to rescue both of the kidnap victims she was sent to retrieve, Quinn Blackwood—her former lover and the man who broke her heart—pulls her and one of the victims out of harm’s way. As a penalty for her sins, she’s offered the dull job of escorting a former bio-chemical warfare scientist to Washington D.C. to reunite with his daughter. Much to her displeasure, the job of monitoring her assignment is given to Quinn.  Quinn isn’t thrilled with the situation either. He taught Eva everything he knew about secrets, sex, and lies—but the biggest lie of all was the one he’d told himself: that his missions for HRS were more important than anything, including his relationship with Eva. Because now that they’re working together again, the urge to put his hands on her, to feel her beneath him, is killing him.  Things only get worse when their current operation goes wrong, and the scientist they’re guarding is kidnapped mid-air. Now, Eva and Quinn have to work together to find him before he is forced to create a monstrous weapon that could destroy entire cities. A hard task made more difficult when they find themselves fighting both the enemy and their building desire for each other. Can they work together for the sake of the mission without reigniting the passion between them—or will passion be the salvation of them all? Review: I really enjoyed the story from new to me author Sharron McClellan! This story starts out with action and it keeps going until the end of the story.  I thought the author's writing style and her topic were very entertaining and kept me on the edge of my seat until the end of the book.  I think the use of the biological weapon in the story is very timely and so true to the world today. The story is about Eva and Quinn who work for a private security firm.  Eva and Quinn have had a love affair in the past, but Quinn broke things off about a year ago when he got scared that the riskiness of their job might mean losing Eva.  Well, I understand where Quinn wants to protect Eva not just from himself but from outside forces, but it does not work.  As they go about trying to rescue a scientist and his daughter, they fight their love for one another.  I love that Eva is tough as nails, probably stemming form her past, but that she also has such a tender heart.  I think Eva and Quinn are perfect for each other and was so glad they overcame their obstacles.   Without giving anything away from the story, there is tons of suspense and mystery here to keep you guessing and the ending is a real nail-biter. 4 stars
