Cool under pressure… Until now.

Hostile Operations Team sniper Jack “Hawk” Hunter is cool, methodical, and utterly lethal. Nothing rattles Jack’s calm. But that was before he learned he fathered a child three years ago—a child who has just been kidnapped.

4 Action Packed and Sexy Stars

Even if you were thinking about something other than my gun, I'm not interested," he told her. "Not ever again. You're gorgeous and you know it. But you're a fucking liar- and I can't stand a liar."

Three years ago pop sensation, Gina Domenico, was at the wrong place at a very wrong time. Caught on the wrong side of flying bullets during a mission, she's rescued by the sexy HOT operator and sniper, Jack “Hawk” Hunter. Jack knows he has no business with th
The mission is to eliminate the top man of the gun running group and to get out as quickly as possible. It was Jack’s job as sniper to pull the trigger but in his scope he spots a woman who is obviously being mistreated by the boss’ bodyguards so he shoots them too. Jack stays behind and helps the woman to escape and find somewhere safe to stay until the team could extract.

Whilst hiding out Jack struggles with the fact the woman was no other than Gina Demenico, the famous pop star. This is the s

When Jack's team is called on a mission they never expected to find Gina a famous singer with their target. When the situation is taken care of Gina didn't stop to think she just ran after seeing several men killed. Noticing she was being followed Gina hid only to run into Jack. Jack's late wife loved Gina's music so he knew he couldn't leave her without a chance to get free, and when she found him after fleeing he knew he had to protect her. After spending three days together they both parted w ...more

I liked that one but I guess I couldn't turn off the logical part of my brain to enjoy it truly.

Very pleasantly surprised by this romantic suspense novel that I've had on my TBR for a while. I haven't read any of the other series so I came to this basically with no expectations. I'm not even sure why I purchased it in the first place.

So any way I found it very well written. The action sequences were tense and believable. The romantic relationship between the two leads was very well done. The attraction and sexual tension was believable and progressed at a beleivable rate considering the s

Everytime I think Lynn Raye Harris cannot possibly do it, she writes another addition to the Hostile Operations Team that I LOVE!!! Jack and Gina have so much "baggage" that I was honestly despairing that they were ever going to get their HEA... but they did (THANK GOD!!).

Now if you just wrote a story about Nick and Victoria... (HINT, HINT...)

Originally reviewed for Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy.

Intense, fast paced, emotional ringer!! Lynn Raye Harris continues her Hostile Operations Series by playing on a parent's greatest fear.. Someone kidnapped her child! HOT Shot is her 5th book in this series and each one pulls a different string, captures a different emotion and makes you just want to come back for more..

4 Exciting Stars!

When Jack and his team move in on an arms dealer in the Caribbean the last thing they expect is for their targets girlfriend to be there, much less for his girlfriend to be Gina Domenico, a pop-star sensation! Following through with their mission they eliminate the target, but when his bodyguards emerge from the house and being to manhandle Gina, Jack acts on instinct and kills them as well and saving Gina to escape on her own.

Splitting up on the island from his team Jack run
What a great story! I can't believe how many dark and erotic romances I've been reading lately. This book was refreshing and came along at the right time. Although Hot Shot is book 5 in the Hostile Operations Team series, I felt like it could be read as a standalone. I have not read any of the other books in the series and now plan to catch up on them. This book has appearances of several of the previous couples, but nothing that keeps you from understanding the overall storyline.

Jack, he's not one taking some shocking news lightly, "if you're telling the truth," he snarled, "you have no idea how much I want to strangle you right now. You effing lies, Gina. To the world. To me." We also learn that where Gina is concerned the boy has no control, "I'm sorry for being a d*** earlier. That's what I came here to say. Not for this." He shook his head. "But you were naked, and I lost my mind. Seem to do that a lot with you." Also he's do anything for his girl even if it means h ...more

This author writes one of those must read black ops series that is as good as Maya Banks & Cindy Gerard! Her own original series meshes perfect, but does not copy or reproduce story lines similar to the other books.

AND YES!! I was up all night reading this book!!

Gina's baby is kidnapped & she calls Jack to help her get back the son he never knew existed.

A one liner makes this book totally predictable, but it was exciting & nerve racking at times & I couldn't put it down.

Every time I pick up one of the new HOT series books I always know for a sure fire fact am in for a heck of ride. Action, suspense, super hot men, spicy sex scenes and emotional drama all packed into a excellent plot.

But what I also always think is that this author cannot possibly do it better than the last time, and you know what , I could not be more wrong. This time the author surprised me over and over again with fascinating characters , a heck of a plot and twits and turns I had no idea wa

Well, no one said you have to like all the guys in a series, right? And while I don't get this not-exactly-hatred feeling often, it still was loud and clear in this book.

Jack "Hawk" Hunter never expected to fall in love again after his wife's untimely death. But three years after rescuing a popular pop idol, Gina Domenico, he finds out the woman gave birth to his son - a son that was created during some passionate moments whi

Usually I do not read celebrity romance stories, but Hot Shot (A Hostile Operations Team Novel) really worked for me. There was an instant connection between Jack and Gina (famous singer) which was so captivating that I became instantly invested in their story. Even though it was easy to guess who fathered Eli, it only served to move the story of the kidnapping along. The cohesive story line did have an unexpected turns of events later in it, which just caused me to continue turning the pages to ...more

Seriously is there a hotter series out there in this genre? Because if there is, I don't know about it. I have loved these books from book 1 and they are only getting better and better not to mention hotter!!!

I loved the story of Jack and Gina and of course getting a glimpse of all the HOT guys.

There was action galore, plenty of drama and of course more panty melting scenes that leave you with that little smile that secretly wishes you were the lead character in the book

I am a huge sucker for the men of the HOT team and I have had this crush on Jack since the beginning. I was so happy to see his story and man did he become so much hotter to me as a result. Jack, who after rescuing pop star Gina, assumes he will never see the woman who he loved in a cave while awaiting transport. Fast forward three years and Jack gets a call from Gina that her son has been taken, and O yeah, it's his son too. All the men from HOT step up to help Jack rescue his son, and in the e ...more

I am a great fan of Suzanne Brockmann, but Lynn Raye Harris has taken the top spot above her as my new favourite author of military romance books. I have not read a military romance for a while now but the wait was well worth it. This story is about Gina a famous popstar and Jack (Hawk) Hunter the Hostile Operations Team (HOT) sniper. They meet when Jack and his team are sent to stop an arms deal going down and Gina is in the wrong place at the wron

HOT Sniper

Once again Lynn Raye Harris wrapped us up in the magic of the Hostile Operations Team(HOT) team and now it's Jack's turn. I always pictured Jack as the strong silent type who got the job done and that was that. One chance encounter with Gina as he waits for his team to rescue him we glimpse the man beneath the illusion. When Gina calls Jack needing help he realizes that the past never stays buried. From there we embark on a action packed adventure filled with combustible chemistry and

I received this ARC from NetGalley for an honest review. This book is Super Hot and Sexy. Jack and Gina made one combustible couple. The love scenes were steamy. This story has lots of suspense and drama. Falling in love again was not in the plans but from the moment Jack seen Gina in his scope something happened. Three years later after rescuing Gina, she needs him to find and save her baby (his baby) and the action begins. It takes a real man to forgive. Can he do it, you have to read and see.

I can't continue to write the same fantastic review. These books are fabulous. Once I start one, I can't put it down. I'm on book 8 now, but I have to save them for when I have nothing else going on, because when I open to page 1, I won't be able to stop until I get to the end.

This is the 5th book of the series. However, you will understand more if you’ve read earlier books of this series.

If you want to read what the book is about, read above the reviews.

Our hero is usually cool and usually good at waiting. Things you need to be for a sniper. However, when he spots something going down with a woman, he saves her life mainly due to his dead wife liking her music. However, when he runs into her when he’s trying to leave and helps her survive. At first they didn’t like

The action in this one was awesome--so exciting! Jack "Hawk"Hunter, the team's sniper, was every bit the hero I thought he was going to be. Gina Domenico was no pushover, either. Not only had she created and built a fabulously successful career for herself, but she was a fiercely protective mother... even if she did keep the fact she'd had a baby with Jack a secret from him. But in her defense, at the time they were together, he was in the throes of grief and had told her he didn't want a family ...more

This is another action packed love story in this series with Jack Hunter reconnecting with the woman he saved three years ago and finding out they had a child, Eli, together. She went to him because Savros had kidnapped him and he wanted her to meet up with him or she would never see him alive again. She could not get help from the FBI either.

“No, but I imagine there's a gun tucked away somewhere on your body. And I know what you can do with that, hotshot."

He took a step toward her. "With what, sweetheart? With the gun? Or the body?”
“He'd told her she was his. That he was jealous and he wasn't sharing her. Where the hell had that come from?

He didn't know, but as she leaned forward and pressed her mouth to his abdomen, he knew he'd spoken the truth. He was jealous. Completely and utterly, and it twisted him up inside to realize it.”
