He looks good in uniform

He looks even better out of it!

Will Forrester--former Army Ranger, Southern gentleman, quintessential badass. Now an elite member of Ranger Security, Will once again has his work cut out for him. Especially when he meets Rhiannon Palmer.

As the 6th installment in her Men Out of Uniform series, Ms. Nelson takes us back to Ranger Security, the private investigation company run by former militaries Flanagan (The Player), Payne (The Specialist) and McCann (The Maverick).

Will Forrester is the Man Out of Uniform du jour and Ranger Security's new employee. He's left the Army after his latest mission ended with several civilian casualties and he's still fighting the grief and guilt over that. His 1st case at Ranger Security is a fairly

Includes minor plot details.

I’m not sure why, but I was expecting a romantic suspense novel, and there was nothing suspenseful about The Ranger. That’s not to say it wasn’t a good story, because it was. I enjoyed the characters, former Army Ranger Will Forrester and elementary school guidance counselor, Rhiannon Palmer.

Will is described as a “bad ass,” but frankly, I never saw that. We know that he’s left the military because of a mission that went very wrong, in which a child died in his arms.
Second Read 10-14-15 thru 10-16-15

- 4 1/2 Stars

Great book the second time around. Only 217 pages and because of that, the story moved along at a steady clip without any filler or slow parts. I like that!

Excellent chemistry between the main characters. Funny dialogue and I enjoyed Rhiannon's free spirit. They were both on a mission and what they found wasn't what they expected. Very nicely written and a solid 4 1/2 stars from me on the second read, too.

Hired to find an older man named Theo, Will Forrester, never expected to get in deep with Rhiannon Palmer. But her logic that she could help him finally made him allow her to come. All Rhiannon wanted was to find her mentor Theo, the man who help her learn to control and handle her ability to feel emotions from other people. The attraction between her and Will was just a bonus. But she could feel it wanting to become more than just a method to relax and have fun. Always being scared to give love ...more

I have liked Rhonda Nelson's out of uniform series so far, and this book didn't disappoint either. Will is such a good guy, I was cheering for him and behind him throughout the book. Rhiannon is just the "march to the beat of your own drummer" kind of woman that he needs, and they suited each other fabulously. The sexual tension and chemistry was hot but also fun, and that made the book seem a lot more real.

I can't wait to see who is going to pop up next working for Ranger Security.

I enjoined reading this book. It was my first harlequin blaze book :) I thought the added lure of the family treasure was a great addition to the book and it wouldn't have been as good with out it ;)
