The book opens with Harper Searcy working at the Embassy in Pakistan when all of a sudden the pop pop pop of bullets flying can be heard and all heck breaks out. Now Harper has an admirer in a hot Navy SEAL, Michae ...more
Great way to check out the author's writing style though, and happily (for me) we seemed to 'click' so straight on to the next book in the series :)
In this story we meet a SEAL team operating in Pakistan to protect the American Embassy and Ambassador. Soon after this mission, the guys will be hanging up their uniforms and entering the civilian life, which is I believe what we will see th ...more
Harper Searcy is trapped in the United States Embassy and it is under attack. No one is coming to save them and the group of SEALs that had been on their guard were called off and sent to another job. Harper knows that the only person she can rely on is Michael. She and Michael had a one night stand that she was still thinking about, but it always came down to the one thing she couldn't get past, his military career. She didn't want to fall in love with or have a l ...more
Unless you count the treasure in their pants. *snickers at myself*
Anywho. There's nothing better than locking two people with chemistry and some unresolved relationship ...more
This was a very quick read. In fact for me it was too short. It was just a few scenes and some really hot sex. The length is way it’s getting a three star rating. The writing was good, and the characters were believable.
I just keep thinking about the blood the hero must have been covered in as they had sex. Yes I am that girl, as blood becomes a fine mist in battle and the dude had just fought a bloody one.
Good action/story and some sweet moments. Funny. Overly wordy with TONS of inner monologues and southern sayings, and references to movies that are probably funny if you are familiar with them but can be confusing if you aren't. Could be uncomfortable for Christians due to religious cursing.
Book ends at 35% and then you get the first 8 chapters of Devil and the Deep.

A secretary to a foreign ambassador and a SEAL captain who's team is assigned to protect them spent a sizzling night together. Then he was relocated when the immediate threat vanished. Only now, the embassy is attacked and only Harper and the ambassador are in residence with a skeleton crew of Marines. It's up to M ...more
The ambassador already locked himself in his office and she’s on her own.
But what she doe shave is the phone number of one of the SEAL team. They ended up in bed together the night before he shipped out for a mission, and the squad’s due back today.
She’s never wanted to see Michael “Mad Dog” Wainwright as badly as she does now. And that’s what scares her.
She’d promised herself not to fall for a serving man, and t ...more
Harper is my kind of heroine - smart, sarcastic, funny Southern gal. I really like military heroes, and Navy SEAL Michael ("Mad Dog") is the best. A past one-night stand that rocked their world haunts both of them. She want to forget him, is afraid of getting her heart broken. He wants to see where it leads, and refuses to give up even when she refuses to answer his texts and emails.
Things come to a head when terrorists storm the American embassy in Pakistan ...more
So why the 3 and not a 2? I liked the writing and saw the potential for the series. I'll read the next and decide if I should c ...more
My only complaint (for lack of a better term) is that it was too short -- in fact, it finishes after 35% and the remainder of the book is dedicated to the first eight chapters of Hell or High Water .
Nonetheless, for a novella, the chemistry and the action were definitely there.
This wasn’t bad. Not bad at all but it was incredibly boring. Literally all it was was a shoot out some sex then the end.
I do really enjoy Julie Ann Walkers writing and her characters. I’m very happy we got to see my boo Bran in this novella even tho it was only briefly.
You don’t have to read this to read the other 2 books. It really has no correlation to them but if you want a good steamy scene and you’ve read the others I would recommend giving it a go beca ...more
It says its 137 pages, but the story really is only 50 pages, the rest is an introduction to the book Devil and the Deep.
I am not sure if this back story will be relevant to Devil and the Deep, we will just have to see.
If the book is not free on any of the reading devices you use, don't purchase it.
Good story with good characters, just be away that this is a good but short story and one that ends quicker than expected if you pay attention to the percentage at the bottom of the page. Another new author to me and I will probably end up getting more from as the writing is good and the characters believable.
