This was my first time reading either of these authors so I went in completely blind. I had no expectations. But as soon as I started reading the first few paragraphs, I knew this was going to be good.

Right off the bat, it starts with two people in the throes of getting down and dirty...

and not just your ordinary hook-up but between two hot, highly trained army Captains – one male and the other female - until…something rather funny,

seriously hot

Ice is left on a cliffhanger, but book #2 Fire is 99 cents today and 1.99 tomorrow.

Ice was not what I anticipated it to be! I thought that it was just a military romance book but it was so much more. This book started full force and was freaking good ! I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't put it down.

Commander Kaleb Maverick and Captain Jade Eliott 's story is one rollercoaster ride with them both meeting their match. I fell hard and fast for these chara

Ice was a good read for me, it promised to be a scorcher and that’s just what I got.

Captain Jade Elliott of the United States Army has worked her ass off to be where she is at. She is a top notch sniper and does her job well. She was my favorite character of this read.

When reading a book, there are few things I enjoy more than a ridiculously strong female lead character. And, HOLY HELL, does Captain Jade Elliott fit the bill. Female Army Ranger? Doesn’t get much stronger than that! She’s tough, powerful and brave, yet feminine and sexy. She’s all woman, living and working in a man’s world. A world she’s thinking about leaving behind all for a hot, sexy, dirty talking man—one Kaleb Maverick.

Kaleb is a natural leader—he’s hand-picked the team he wants and needs

ICE was beautifully written and insanely HOT, demanding my attention the whole time until the very end. These ladies will leave you begging for more Commander Kaleb Maverick and his sexy mouth. Pick up ICE now and be prepared to be sucked in by this new Commander!

It was just ok

I think that what most bothered me about this book is the way the guy is so possessive. There was insta-love and I really did not enjoy that. There was just no palpable chemistry between the two characters. In the end I enjoyed the way it ended but I will not be reading the next book.
DAMN! This was off-the-charts HOT! I'm still trying to cool myself down! Whew! #TooHotToHandle Right off the bat, there is so much intensity radiating off of this book. It is quick, down and dirty, and sexy as all get out! ICE was NOTHING like I anticipated. It's always hard when you are reading a new author to you. You need to get used to their writing and how they present the plot. Now, add a collaboration to that mix, and you have to figure out the flow. Well, after devouring ICE in one n ...more

Hot freakin damn this book was crazy good. Kathy and Hilary found a way to make hot soldiers even freakin hotter. They killed cowriting this book. I love thay I couldn't tell who wrote what. If a book is gonna be written by two people you don't need to know who did what. It needs to flow. And this one did effortlessly. 

I must confess I may have a girl crush on Jade. That chick is freakin bad ass! I love her take no shit att

The story had promise, but I really really dislike the way the writer portrayed a CO blackmailing his subordinate into have sex with him. Such a lack of respect for the forces and what our men and women do, and the code of conduct they live by.

I wanted a the old Mission Impossible tv show with Kaleb going through and picking his team. Tossing aside those that won't work, and then lingering over Jade's file. Maybe then he wouldn't have seemed like such a jerk when he meet her. I almost stopped reading, but pushed through.

Kaleb/Fire and Jade/Ice were perfect together. Kaleb has a dirty mouth and not afraid to use it. Jade doesn't put up with any of his crap. On the way to a great relationship and then we get a stinking &

4.5 stars

The opening of this read, from the very first page, had me completely hooked. A steamy sex scene was not what I expected, but exactly what I got! Holy wow was it good! Digging deeper however, you find out that it isn't just about sex. The heroine, Jade Elliott, goes through a lot as an Special Ops Army Captain, and seeing the layers of her character unfold throughout the novel, pulls you in as a reader even more.

What do you get when you throw two sizzling and erotic authors together in one book? Explosive! In every sense of that word, you start the book clenching your thighs and end the book clenching your kindle. Jade and Kaleb are the new couple that I expect people will try and base their sex life off of. But don't be fooled.... There's more depth to this story outside of the panty melting sex that is so descriptive, it'll leave you with mini O's. It's not too often that any author can succeed in wri ...more

Holy US Army men & Women! I love a good army story but this was so much more. You have the regular army craziness due to the missions they go on but add in some hot and heavy emotions and you one hell of a story!

What an amazing wild adventure this book takes you on. I was not prepared for this at all with the past books from these two wonderful ladies. Kathy Coopmans and Hilary Storm have written 5 star books on their own, but this book is sizzling right off the pages.

Captain Jade is a strong female that every woman wants to be. Special Forces, take no shit, independent strong and beautiful all wrapped up into one package.

Commander Kaleb what woman wouldn't submit to a hot, commanding, dominating, sexy
Wow. This book hooked me like nothing else has in ages. And that ending....!!!!

First of all, I have to say that this book has the perfect guy on the cover. I could easily picture him as Kaleb. And that just made it so much more enjoyable to read this.

I'll admit that Kaleb's actions in the beginning of the book threw me off. I totally wasn't expecting him to be that much of an asshole! I was intrigued because I was dying to know how he was going to rebound from that.

To be honest, by the time I actually was due to read this book for review, I was not wanting to read it. I was no longer in the mood, but I had signed up so I would. Then I did. It was alot better than I anticipated. I got caught up in the story pretty quickly. Best thing, the sex was hot & right off the bat. I loved this heroine being a professional military soldier. I loved that she fought for so long to make her dream. Women had a long road to see combat. I liked that she

Explosive, Sexy, and one heck of a ride!

In ICE we meet Captain Jade Elliott and Commander Kaleb Maverick, out on a mission to get one of the bad guys. The attraction to one another is instant, but getting them to like each other, now that takes a bit longer.

Jade is the first woman to graduate from Ranger school, she’s the best of the best, and she will do anything for her country. She loves what she does, and is passionate about it. I could feel how much she truly cared about her job and her cou

Definitely a great start to the series , looking forward to continue on and also hopefully get stories for the rest of the TEAM !!

The story starts off dirty and I will admit I did question the type of chick Jade was BUT it was clear to see she was the best at what she does and earned her spot and respect of all the men around her. Kaleb seemed a bit much - arrogant and so demanding - who did he think he was LOL !! Of course we all love to read about this kind of alpha - and seeing him attempt t
