Flynn’s Firecracker is the fifth book in the Heroes for Hire series, yet it can be read as a standalone novel. I read it as a standalone novel, but I do feel as though I would have understood things better had I read the prior books in the series. I only say this because some of the information was a bit daunting at first – once the story started to move, I was perfectly fine, but at first I did have a lot of questions. Therefore, whilst it can be enjoyed as a standalone novel, I honestly do ...more

Fast paced action and suspense…

This is the fifth book in the Heroes for Hire series that can be read as a stand-alone.

Former Navy SEAL Flynn Kilpatrick took on the trial run assignment of protecting a woman who owns and runs an animal shelter as a precursor to joining Legendary Security permanently. The bodyguard stint went off smoothly if you don’t count the sparks that flew between him and the feisty owner who didn’t like her independence challenged or her personal space violated. Flynn so

**Disclaimer: If you've read Merk's Mistake, book three, then you'll recognize this couple. Flynn was sent to protect Anna, Katina's (that book's heroine), best friend to ensure those after Katina didn't involve Anna.

Flynn, a former SEAL, has a reputation of being kicked out of the Navy. However, all isn't as it seems. He knows Levi's company is his chance to redeem himself and he's determined to prove he can do his new job. When he was sent to Anna's animal sanctuary to help, he felt a

Another great read by a great author. This story as a whole just keeps getting better and better. Flynn's story was surprisingly a lot better than I thought. To be honest, it took me a little longer to get into, but once I was hooked I couldn't stop reading.

Flynn was a character that wasn't really mention before except a little bit during Merk and Katina's story. So I didn't know what to think, but I am sure glad a stuck with this one cause I absolutely fell in love with Anna and Flynn's story.

Yes. So much yes. He loves her - already. He's already planning for more, but he's not entirely certain what kind of MORE he wants - just that he wants it, he needs it, and he thinks she needs it, too.
She's independent, a dynamo, a scrapper. She doesn't actually know how to ask for help and thinks she has to do everything on her own. She's able to admit this to herself and others, though, so her showing up on the scene the way she does IS her way of asking for help - without having to actually

I have this book in the Heroes for Hire Bundle, Books 4-6, but I am reviewing them individually as I read them.

As this book opens you will recall Flynn is no longer providing protection for Anna. He's been gone for about a week and has also done another assignment since. One thing he did do, was leave his jacket hanging on the back of the kitchen door. An excuse to come back to see her. Unfortunately that little ploy is about to backfire.

When Anna wakes to an owl slaughtered on her doorstep, she

Suspense, terror, action and violence a plenty in this book, a real hold your breath read. I don't think I really relaxed at all reading this story so completely on edge with all the surprises jumping off the pages, I guess I suspected what was coming not so far into the story but it kept my fingers crossed just the same. I was fearful for both Flynn and Anna but also Logan as he was involved and around them so much.
My heart is still pounding so much faster than it should be while writing this

First, I have to note that although the book was claimed to be stand-alone, and mostly it’s true, you’ll feel a bit ‘lost-in-space’ if you jumped right in to this book. You’d really better to read previous books, at least one before this, to understand fully Flynn and Anna’s story.

At the beginning of the book, Flynn already in love with Anna, and he’d planned for more with her, whatever ‘more’ was. However, there’s someone seems like having something to square with Anna, or is it with Flynn? The

I really enjoyed this novel. Although I started this series (Book 5), instead of my usual thing of reading in order – it was ok to jump in at the end rather than the beginning! The story flowed well enough, and there was enough history that I was able to keep up – having said that – I am now also pretty keen to go back and start this series at book one and see what I have been missing!

This story was full of action, suspense, quite fast-paced and very well written. I enjoyed learning about the

I was happy to see that Flynn and Anna got their story. From the sparks coming off them from the previous story, it was sure to be interesting and Ms. Mayer did not disappoint. These two characters were like gas and fire, when the got together sparks flew. It was quite an interesting mating ritual. Ha Ha.

Flynn Kilpatrick had felt he'd done the right thing as a SEAL, but being he disobeyed orders...he was booted out. After a year of wandering, he's hoping to get on full-time with Levi's company, Legendary Security. But it looks to him like his bad luck has followed him and he's not sure where his future will be.

Anne Burrows has a small animal shelter. And a fairly boring life...until she gets a bodyguard. She enjoyed having the

I was so looking forward to reading this book after the few hints dropped about Flynn and Anna and I was not disappointed. Things have been going well for Flynn and looked good for him to get a permanent role with Levis team but of course as things are going so well something has to go wrong now not only is the spot on Levis team at stake but the relationship he wanted to take further with Anna but be all but over.

I have read the other books in the series, but found I could identify with this one.

A few books back, Flynn, our hero, was sent on a temp assignment to keep an eye and protect a friend of one of the other men. He was discharged from the military because he didn't listen to orders and followed his heart instead. Now he's hoping to get back into a military group, without being in the military, due to the company being SEALs like him.

Flynn is ding a trial job for Legendary and is looking after Anna and her animal shelter but he finds easy but his trouble starts when he leaves after the job finishes. Anna had enjoyed having Flynn's help and couldn't help being attracted to him so was a bit relieved when he left but also really needs him when there is a dead man on her property. It becomes apparent that someone really wants to kill Flynn and really has no problem if other people die as part of the process. Can they both ...more

Flynn is an ex-Navy SEAL and agrees to take a security job at an animal sanctuary in the hopes that once the job is complete Levi will hire him. Anna is independent and feisty and her whole purpose in life is to save animals.

From the moment they met the sparks flew and Flynn intended to pursue it once the job was completed. After he leaves she finds an animal that has been killed and all the signs point to Flynn however when she confronts him she believes that she was mistaken. They return to

>Book review - Flynn's Firecracker

>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the 5th in the Heroes for Hire series and ends in an HEA. Flynn takes a trial run assignment for Levi to protect Anna and help at her animal shelter. All of this happens in a previous book. This story picks up after Flynn is done with his assignment. I really would have liked some scenes, even via flashback, of how Flynn and Anna interacted during his assignment. I think the relationship chemistry would have felt

WOW! What an exciting story. This is about a new member of Levi's team - Flynn. He made the team after successfully keeping Anna safe. Unfortunately, now a man who hated Flynn started tormenting Anna. Flynn tries to protect Anna but is finding that difficult to do. Flynn figured out who the guy was and does all he can to get him to jail. He finally is arrested after he shoots Anna in the arm and Flynn gets him. Unfortunately, he is released from jail and promptly shoots Flynn

This was a story that had some ummph. Some adrenaline. Some bite. Some passion. Suspense, action, drama. The pace stayed steady with flares that really got things going and going. This was the light of fire that I needed to have. The scenes are on various waves depending on the setting. The richness. The intensity.

The passion heating between the two was befitting of explosives. The was more sexy, steely, strong SEALs to go all the way round. I have yet to read the first two of this seires but I

I do love these books. The author does such an excellent job setting the scene and delivering exactly what you need and want from each character and the supporting cast. Anna is such a spitfire. She let's the tougher the nails Flynn by with absolutely nothing and I cheered her on even though he is a great guy. He needs a woman in his life who can challenge him after all! Anna is just phenomenal and the way they both love animals just melted my heart. Actually the way most of the Seals stepped in ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed Flynn and Anna's story but as I haven't read the previous books in the serie, I was missing on some fact and the first part of the relationship. So when this book starts with her going crazy at him, I have to say I was surprised but very intrigued :)
I really liked Anna's personality, her stubbornness in taking care of her animal despite the danger she faces. Her protectiveness then transfers to Flynn whom she defends like a bear

Really good read. I definitely enjoyed Anna's spunky character and Flynn's funny one. They were perfect for each other, especially since they went right for the relationship instead of playing games, which is so frustrating, especially when its adults.

The book flowed nicely and in turn was really engaging and subsequently a page turner. The only thing I didn't get from the book was, why did Brendan get kicked out of the military and why did he

Anna is in a rage, someone has killed one of the animals she was looking after. They left the body on her doorstep.
When Flynn is confronted by a furious Anna, waving a bloody knife and his jacket at him he is dumbstruck. How could she think he did that.
Someone is out to get revenge, but who??. It gets more and more dangerous every day.
Anna is in way over her head. All she is used to doing is rescuing animals, not dealing with bodies and flying bullets.

This is the fifth book in the series Heroes for Hire and I have to say this one really is better if you've read the earlier books. The main characters, Anna and Flynn actually met in a previous book and both felt an attraction to the other. Although, both Anna and Flynn were only briefly mentioned in the earlier books, it set the stage for this book. So even though they had met, neither character acted on the attraction. In this book, Flynn is looking for an excuse to see Anna when she actually ...more

Book 5 was exciting and sweet.

This book, like the others in this series pulled me into the story and pulled me along in the excitement, adventure, drama, mystery, attempted murder, murder as well as the sweet romance that takes place between Flynn and Anna.

I loved the feisty fire Anna brought to this book, not only with Flynn but any and all others she came in contact with.

I have been looking forward to ths book since I read Merk's Mistake. It seems that Anna and Flynn have been butting heads for a while.

This is book 5 in the series, but can be read as a standalone. Dale Mayer has created a great set of characters who engage you from the very first page. Both Flynn and Anna both rub each other the wrong way and it lends to many quite humerous encounters.

As the series progresses the characters and storylines become more complex.

Having not read any other books in this series I didn't know what to expect when it came to this one, but I was NOT disappointed. This book was really enjoyable. The only thing is that I wish I knew the rest of Flynn and Anna's backstory from the previous book, but even without having that I felt this book had a great flow and kept me on the edge of my seat. Trying to guess who was after either Flynn or Anna was really half the fun. I loved that Anna was a strong women and I loved that she had ...more

Another great one by Dale Mayer and I am sooooo loving this series. Each story has another alpha Seal falling for a strong woman and this one is no exception. This time Flynn falls for Anna who we were briefly introduced to in a previous book. When Anna seems to be in danger, Flynn steps in to protect her as he has already fallen for her but first they have to figure out who is doing this.
The sparks and chemistry fly between the two and there is a reason why the book is called Flynn's

I have had many of her novels on my TBR but this is the first one I have opened. I was right away into this one with the characters providing the necessary combustion and fire. Flynn and Anna will entertain you in this one sucking you in to their dilemma. Rumbles between the two entertain along with their heat that starts to rise. Suspense will also wiggle its way in giving you lots to chew on. With that added spice this author takes you onto the edge. I stayed with them throughout having to ...more

This was pretty good. Really interesting in the beginning until the mystery pretty much got solved as soon as the problem was introduced XD It still had a bit of suspense, but it was less detective and more 'When will they strike next?' kinda thing. Still, the suspense bit was really cool. I didn't click with this installment as much as the other books in this series and the one it spins off from, but they were
