4.5 HOT stars

In Kev's world, sex with a variety of women was easy. It was love that was impossible.

If you want an action packed and sexy romantic suspense, this is the series you really need to get acquainted with. I've been looking for a long time for something similar to Cindy Gerard's Black Ops series, and I'm so happy I stumbled onto HOT. Each book only gets better and better...and did I mention sexier?

Lucinda "Lucky" San Ramos narrowly escaped death when she was captured by a te

***4 Stars***

This was the perfect blend of romance and suspense, with a strong heroine and a jaded, military badass.

My only grievance is I wish the ghost of Marco didn't hang over the story for so long.

But, this is definitely a RS series not to be passed up.
This was a very nice enjoyable read...moving on to another one in this series...and since they can all be read as a stand alone...I can pick whichever one I want ;)

3,5 stars
This is the story of Kevin and Lucky and was well named as it was dangerous and it was definitely hot!

I am not gonna re-hash a very well written synopsis as it does a good job of giving the basics about the story, I am also not gonna give any spoilers/secrets away as you really do need to read it yourself. All I am gonna say is that it is an excellent addition to the HOT series, it is very well written, and has a gritty story line which grabbed my interest right from the start and kept it there

And this series just keeps getting better and better!!! LOVED Kevin and Lucky's story and can't wait to see who get's their story told next!!!

Seriously, if y'all haven't started this series yet, PICK 'EM UP!!! Because this series has it ALL; heart pounding/nail biting/page turning suspense, MAJORLY ALPHA MALES *SWOON* and enough HAWT SMEXIN' to "keep me satisfied" *SMIRK*

This author sure was clever naming this team HOT, because that is exactly what they are....

I love these freaking books, and if it is at all possible, they just get better and better.

This is the story of Kevin "Big Mac" McDonald and Lucky San Ramos. She is the wife of a former HOT operatives who died on a previous mission. He also happened to be Big Mac's best friend.

Lucky is former Army, not to mention having previously worked with HOT when 2 years ago she was taken b

The sexy, bad-ass, hotter than hot, more kick-ass then 007 and Bruce Willis ever will be men of HOT are back!!

Once again the author has created a masterpiece filled with loads of action, drama, intense passion, guns blazing, car chasing, fight to stay alive, uncovering of secrets and mind-blowing awesomeness.

This time around I finally got behind what exactly the deal with Kevin "Kev" McDonald is and just why he tip toes around the one and only woman he has ever really, truly wanted, and just wh

Dangerously Hot is a searingly HOT and suspenseful read

Dangerously Hot, book four in Lynn Raye Harris’ Hostile Operations Team series, hit all the right marks for me. I loved the second-chance story former HOT team member Lucky San Ramos and current team member Kevin “Big Mac” MacDonald.

I’d been curious about Lucky for a while (she’d been mentioned and made a brief appearance in earlier stories) and, well, Kevin is HOT. (Yes, the HOT acronym for this series might do double duty to describe these

This is the first I've read from the HOT series, but it will not be the last! Kev and Lucy's story definitely lives up to its name.

Dangerously Hot is almost a reunion story. Kev and Lucky shared one scorching kiss when he saved her from a terrorist years ago, but then he pushed her away, convinced he couldn't give her what she needed. She married his friend and HOT teammate Marco, and the two went on with their separate lives. Then Marco is killed in action and the terrorist everyone thought wa

Hostile Operations Team (HOT) by Lynn Raye Harris:

Former Army linguist Lucinda “Lucky” San Ramos was rescued by Super Sexy Kevin “Kev” “Big Mac” MacDonald, HOT Operator when she was captured. The attraction was there from the beginning but Kev knows he wasn’t ready for more so he let her go. She married is teammate. Now the team mate is dead and the terrorist is back and the Team needs Lucky to ID him. This is when all the thrilling drama starts. Can this forbidden lo
Loved it! Just love this series.

Lucky Reid is the only one who can identify the terrorist Al Ahmad, the target of HOT’s next mission. Lucky is no longer active duty and Kevin has been tasked with finding her and bringing her back to take part in the mission. He promised her husband Marco before he died he would take care of her; how is bringing her back to be part of a HOT mission taking care of her?

I enjoyed that all my favorite HOT heroes made it on the team in this book. We also get to know s

I love it when series you like just gets better by each story, and Dangerously Hot is my favorite of the series.
The team, the brotherhood is so tight, so commendable. I think Mendez is just super with the scary demeanor, and so caring inside.
And I think it is the brotherhood, that makes it so hard for Kevin to admit his feelings to Lucky. As well as his demons from his childhood. But Kevin and Lucky are so energetic together, the chemistry is just sparking, the tension so high, and it has been b

3.5-4 stars

I love romantic suspense stories that have a good balance between romance and action. This had the right balance for me. There was plenty of action and I LOVED that Lucky(our heroine) was the one to ultimately take down the bad guy - nope, not telling you how she did it, just know that I cheered!

My main complaint about this is that Lucky is Marco's widow and she's in love with his best friend, Kev. Kev is in love with her. No, that's not my complaint. My problem is that both of them

Received an ARC from NetGalley for review

Yeah, these boys are HOT, sexy, and smart. This was just as good as the last one. I just wish there had been a prologue of his rescue of her all those years before. Since I haven't read the first two books in series it may be explained there. She claimed to have all these issues with people touching her, but it seemed like she got over just a little too easy. I'm pointing out everything I had trouble with, but I really did like it. So much so that I just

I like action adventures involving strong men and woman. Dangerously HOT by Lynn Raye Harris certainly fit the bill for me. Having read the third story in the series, I was looking forward to this fourth one. I was not disappointed. The action is intense and the characters hot. I must admit that “Big Mac” McDonald had caught my interest earlier so his story was welcome.
This series is addictive. How do I know this, you ask. Before I had finished Dangerously HOT, I bought the first 2 in the serie

I love the stories of HOT! The military-romance genre is fairly new to me as I've only been reading it for about a year, but I definitely think these are some of the best I read. Each book revolves around one couple, but you get to meet each of the HOT operatives in some way. This one was Kev and Lucky's turn to be in the spotlight and it was fantastic...emotional and at times frustrating, but in the end it all worked out. I'm curious to see which guy gets their story told next and will be waiti ...more

This whole series is action packed, with a hot steamy side of sex. Although this is the fourth book each could be read as a stand alone. Each takes on the story of a different member of H.O.T. This time we have Lucky, H.O.T. widow, and Kevin, player in love. Kevin's rough around the edges but loves Lucky, his best friend's widow. Lucky needs to help the team identify a terrorist as she's the only one to have seen him and lived. This story fulfills the needs of a romance and an action/adventure n ...more

Danger Ahead

The HOT team are at it once again and this time it's Kevin "Big Mac" MacDonald's turn. We knew from previous books that him and Lucky had unresolved issues. We'll let me tell you the road to happily ever after for this dynamic duo is filled with so much actions it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Each book gets better and better and I for one can't wait to see who's next in this superior cast of characters.

This is only the second book in the HOT series i have read and although the other was good this one was much better and reminded me of kaylea cross whose military books are always enjoyable full of action and great characters. Its a shame this was'nt the first in the series as you got to know all the HOT team better and learn what there roles are but l will certainly continue to read more from this series in the future.

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Lucky and Kev and their struggles, both personally and professionally made for a fantastic story. After the death of Marco, her husband and his best friend, the two of them hand to learn to live again. The HOT team was, as usual, there and ready to defend the innocent. This series is wonderful! I enjoy the full length novels more than the novellas because they include more detail (obviously). I can't wait for the next installment of HOTness.

Excellent books.

I just finished all of 4 of your Hostile Operations Team books. I can't wait for the new one coming out. The story lines are great and hold your interest the whole way throughout the book.

Oh my, where to begin?!? I loved Kevin and Lucky's story. It had just the right amount of sexual tension, chemistry and suspense. Both of them had some heavy stuff in their pasts to handle and watching them grow as individuals and then as a couple was beautiful.

I love books about Seals and this one was great. I was on the edge of my seat so many times. I wanted to get in the book and kick some butt too! I felt so bad that Lucky had been held hostage and left scarred physically as well as mentally by an evil terrorist. She ended up marrying Marcos one of the HOT team members and he ended up getting killed. Kevin—Big Mac—who was Marcos best friend had feelings for Lucky too, but he didn’t feel like he was good enough for her and pushed her towards Marcos ...more
Like the previous books this 4th story deals with past and present issues for certain members of the HOT team.

Bringing Lucky San Ramos, widow of Marco, into the mix was for his best friend Kevin MacDonald the hardest thing he had ever done since walking away from her.

Thrust together in the line of fire the pair find themselves in danger from within and without. An implacable enemy has Lucky in his sights and no matter how hard it is to do so Kev must follow orders before his heart.

Thank God, because I was starting to give up on this series. First one was full length, second half the size even though the hero was excellent, then a novella of less than 100 pages! Now, we are finally back to a decent series. This story was a full length story of over 300 pages and Kev MacDonald and Lucky St. Ramos' story redeemed the series. Great plot, both characters were exceptional! Not a boring moment. Intense, hot and funny.

Now, moving on to the next one.

“I love you, Kevin MacDonald. And I don’t care who knows it.” - Lucky San Ramos

Seems like, after Billy's story, this series has taken a turn for the best!

Kevin MacDonald has had his eye on Lucky San Ramos ever since he met her. But due to a rocky past, he thought it best to keep emotional distance and pushed her to his friend, Marco. Now that Marco's dead and HOT needs Lucky for an op, Kevin is assigned as her safeguard - and neither of them is sure they can keep up the charade of nonchalance an

“Because being near her twenty-four seven was certain to kill him. He’d spent years thinking about her, months calling her, and hours fantasizing about kissing her again. He still didn’t know why he’d kissed her, except that he’d been so damn relieved she was alive. He’d been the one to find her, and in those few moments before the other guys arrived, she’d clung to him. It had killed him to see her so vulnerable. So he’d just lowered his head and kissed her. Maybe to impart strength, maybe because he just had to.” 1 likes
