Hot out of the gate...a great addition to the Omega Team series! In typical Almeida and Aubrey style, Gabe (Gator) and Alysa's story grabs you from the opening paragraph and holds on to your throat until the last page. Not only do you have action and suspense, but you also get romance and HEA thrown in for good measure. I have never been disappointed by any of the stories by these authors, with each one receiving a solid five stars.

This book was provided by the authors for my honest review.

First let me say that I got this book as an advanced reading copy or ARC. Now let me get back to the review at hand.

I love this book from the start. No matter it was short the book was full of surprises and unforeseen turns that I didn’t expect in the slightest.

Gabriel “Gator” Moreno is a man with a past. Knowing the main female character from his early years you can see his hesitation the first time he gets back home after a call from his friend who asked for help. But even that a promise made

Don't you love books that pull you right into the story from page one and hold you there until the last page? Gator by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey did just that for me. These authors always promise well developed characters which they delivered in Gabriel and Alysa. Throw in a suspenseful plot, intense action, smoking hot passion and you have a story that is hard to put down.

This novella is part of the Omega Team Kindle World series and is written by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. I love both the Omega Team books, as well as books written by Chris and Cecilia, so I've been waiting for this and I was not disappointed. This is a standalone and you don't need to have read the Omega Team books to enjoy this one.

Chris and Cecilia packed a lot of action, emotion, and twists and turns into this quick read. And as usual with their books, the sex is hot and steamy. A nove

First off ... Gator is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It was so good that I read it in one sitting. The authors keep you on the edge of your seat with so many twist and turns that you want to keep reading to see what happens next. This story is one about a guy, Gabriel aka Gator, who made a lot of mistakes in the past. His best friend contacts him to ask him to protect his sister. This sister just ha

I loved this book. For a standalone novella it was full of action and it had its steamy moments too.I loved all the characters and feel they got their second chance at happiness and will do whatever it takes to change for the better and somethings you have to let go of.

Chris and Cecilia knocked it out of the park once again with an amazing backstory and yet still made it flow so effortlessly that I continuall

I really liked this book. The story-line was packed with suspense, action, and plenty of passion. The characters in the book were very well developed and very likeable. Almeida and Aubrey did a fantastic job of telling Gabe and Alli’s backstory while keeping the plot moving. They did an awesome job of transporting the reader into the scene so the reader can almost feel what the characters are feeling in the moment.

There was a lot packed into a short story but the authors really nailed it. I woul

This is a standalone novella, and I liked it because the story felt complete, yet I felt like I could be getting more books about some of the characters later in a series (which I want!). Gabriel "Gator" gets a call from his childhood friend, Manuel, that seems rings the warning bells for Gator. Manuel says he's gotten in deep and asks Gator to look after his sister, Alysa. Gator knows this is going to be a tough task...since he left her 6 years ago without a word.

Once again these two authors deliver another great story. Gator gets a second chance with his girl after six years. Alyssa is a strong female. She doesn't make it easy for Gabe either.
It's easy to fall in love with their characters. The story is full of drama intrigue and action.with each book these authors write you can see how much effort and detail goes into each book. This series has so much promise m really looking forward to reading the next book.

From the mysterious phone message in the first sentence to the steaming hot last page, this novella packs in so much action I had to pause after each chapter for a breath. The characters are beautifully written. I felt like I knew Gator and Alli, and even Manny. Suspense, car chase, wild shoot out , in depth background, surprises, and some steamy scenes that fogged up my glasses... how the authors squeezed so much into "just a novella" amazed me. ...more

Right off the bat I want to say I loved the book. I have never read any books along this line of interest. The story line was fantastic, the characters were believable. I really enjoyed the way the authors showed that even though guys have a heart and get scared. I do recommend this book it's well worth the read. I hope to read more about these characters. ...more

I love reading books with kick-@ss female characters, and Alysa is definitely one. She doesn't put up with Gabriel's crap for one second. Former bad boy, turned Navy SEAL and now her protector. He just wants her love again. Great story with a good dose of action.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
