Maria Rose
Hard Run is the second story in Sheryl Nantus’s Delta Force Brotherhood romantic suspense series. The men in the brotherhood share the common mission of going in to help others where regular law enforcement stays away. They run a nightclub in Las Vegas, The Devil’s Playground, as cover for their real missions. The first story in the standalone series, Hard Play, saw an ex-cop tangle with a crime boss and the brotherhood’s leader, Dylan, helping in her rescue (and falling for her along the way). ...more

Fast-paced and fun! Skye Harris strolls into the Devil's Playground looking for help with the drug boss who has hospitalized her brother. But she never imagines help will come in the form of the deadly and attractive Finn Storm.

While Finn and his brothers at arms roll into town to deal with the drug boss playing dirty, Skye finds herself unable to deny the intense attraction to her new hero.

Loved this action/adventure romance!

Recommended to lovers of military romance with hot alpha warriors.

Skye shows up on the Brotherhood's doorstep determined to see the person who beat up her brother dead. Finn and his brothers convince her that is not the best option. Finn and Skye fall in love while bringing down the bad guys. I look forward to other books in this series.

HARD RUN had me at "I'm going to kill a man for you." And so did Skye Harris. A hard-working sacrificing heroine, Skye has put aside her dreams and dedicated her life to raising her younger brother and making sure achieves everything she once saw for herself. But deeply in debt, her brother becomes involved as a driver for the biker gang that has taken over their once clean, quiet town. Now, beaten and in a come from the heroin someone pumped into his system, her brother is the latest victim of ...more

I enjoyed this book and found it to be a good read. I found it very hard to like Skye for about the first third of the book. I found her to be abrasive and just....hard. I understand the emotions she was dealing with, the responsibilities she had, but still for me, it was hard to like her. Toward the end of the book, I found her more likeable. Finn was always someone you could depend on and was obviously a good man. This was a good book, though I preferred the first in the series. However I do l ...more

Skye is trying to save her brother, but to do so she must work with the devil. Oh wait, I mean, she must go to Devil's Playground and ask for the Brotherhood.

Finn, immediately intrigued by Skye, agrees they need to take down the gang trying to rule her neighborhood, the same one her younger brother worked for to pay off a debt.

However, Finn, dealing with his own issues, is hesitant to become personally involved. Skye, having her own she struggles with, knows she needs to keep her distance, but a

I fell in love with this author and series when I was flipping through available titles and found #1 of this series. In fact, this one may just be a little better than the first.

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

OMG! This book. Finn. Skye. Suspense. Romance. The unknown. A brotherhood of ex-military heroes that fight the good fight. Yes, this book has it all for me. I will admit that I didn’t read Dylan and Jessie’s book but trust me, everything is explained in the beginning. However, I’m intrigued by their story so I bought the other book.

The biggest impression that the book left me was how strong Skye was. Typically in romantic suspense, the heroine needs to be saved some how but not our Skye. I felt

I'm loving the Brotherhood Series by Sheryl Nantus. This is my first series by her and I know I will continue to read them, action, adventure, romance, and suspense all rolled into one.

Hard Run not only has you sucked in from the first few pages, it will keep you engrossed page after page. Sherly gives us a kick ass heroine Skye. She's hard working, independent, has put her dreams aside to raise her younger brother. But in doing so they have racked up debt and her brother decides for once he's

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. I was excited to get the Brotherhood back... So this is the second book in series, and it is Finn's book, and we get a little more of his background. We meet Skye, who wants revenge on a Biker gang who is responsible for her brother being in a coma due to a heroin overdose. Skye knows he does not take drugs, she wants to kill the man responsible, so she goes to the Devils playground to ask the Brotherhood for help, she meets Dylan, Jessie and Fin ...more

Holy nuts Finn!!! The brotherhood is quickly heating up and Finn reeled me in hook, line and sinker.

Her brother in a coma, beaten and body full of uncut heroin, she needs help. She's given a card to the brotherhood. She comes to them as a last resort. She wants blood from the leader of the MC that's taken over her tiny town and is to blame for her brothers current state. Logan who is the head of the brotherhood gives this job to Finn. Finn's got his own demons to wrestle with this, add to that h

This is novel by Sheryl Nantus and therefore read Hard Run as a standalone and haven't read any previous book in the Delta Force Brotherhood series.

This book has the everything you look for in a good book. Drama, Friendship, Romance, and a well written story. The characters were well developed and I really connected with Skye. Skye is fighting for her brother and what she feels is right, she is asking for help from complete strangers and having to put trust in someone she doesn't know how things

When her brother Robby almost dies in a staged drug overdose, Skye Harris finds herself in a bar called the Devil’s Playground seeking revenge by way of The Brotherhood, a highly organized, tight-knit, ex-military group who helps those who can’t help themselves.
Finn Storm, one of the Brotherhoods best is given the assignment. He follows Skye back to the small town and assumes the identity of a family friend so he can protect her and gather intel on the MC gang responsible for Robby's overdose.

Just as good as the first book! There's a good balance of suspense and sweet romance. Finn is protective of Skye from the first and there is good reason from his past for that. It's reassuring that the men of Devil's Playground are not out to kill in cold blood, but see justice served and stand up for that. While it was realistic that Finn and Skye had to wait for something to happen, which is actually refreshing compared to the short time-frame of other romantic suspense titles, the book got a ...more

Book 2 in the Delta Force Brotherhood, Hard Run is a great read with a solid balance between suspense and romance. I am really enjoying this series and author. Skye and Finn are a good match and when the time comes for Finn to accept what could be will it be worth the sacrifice. I would recommend readers add this to their list

HARD RUN was fast-paced and romantic, with a strong girl-next-door heroine and a swoon-worthy hero! The author does a great job balancing plot and romance, and the connection between the H/H is organic. I love that there's an element of sweet emotion in the midst of the heat of passion and action, it's easy to ship them in the middle of the suspense. I look forward to catching up the author's other books! ...more

Skye Harris would do anything to get revenge on the people that hurt her brother, so turning up on the doorstep of the Devil's Playground and asking Finn Storm and the rest of the Brotherhood for their help in taking down a gang may be her only possibility of success. But the more time she spends with Finn and the deeper he gets into his investigation, the more worried she becomes for his life, especially with the plan he has. Will Finn be able to protect Skye, or will she get caught in the cros

**I received Hard Run from Entangled Publishing and Net Galley in exchange for a voluntary and honest review**

Hard Run by Sheryl Nantus is the second book in her Delta Force series and I have to say having read both books now each one gets better and better. I think that so far I love this one the best.

Skye Harris has about a half a dozen jobs and has been her brother Robby's sister and parent since their parents were killed in an accident. But its been rough as they can barely keep their heads

Hard Run is a sexy, suspenseful tale. Skye needs help getting a gang of drug dealers out of her town, the gang that put her brother in the hospital and in a coma. When she goes to Vegas to seek the Brotherhood's help, she doesn't get what she wants - help with her quest for vengeance. She does get their agreement to take down the gang and send them to prison and protection for Robby while he's in the hospital. She never expected to meet Finn, a man who will not only help take down The Wolf's Tee ...more

This is the second book in the Delta Force Brotherhood series. I’m so in love with the men in this series! This book is fast-paced, suspenseful, with some twists; I also found it hard to get any sleep while this is up on my kindle. This story could be read as a standalone, but just because of the sexiness factor you should read “Hard Play” the first in the series anyways. When the police won’t help her, Skye turn’s to the Brotherhood for help. After Skye walks into the Devil’s Playground looking ...more

This second outing the Brotherhood series is a worthwhile followup to the first, and starts off strong. Skye is desperate for someone to help her by killing the head of a local motorcycle gang who is responsible for bringing drugs into the small town in the California desert where she lives with her brother, Robby.  He was beaten and left for dead after what should have been a lethal overdose of heroin and is currently in a coma.  Skye knows that he would never willingly do drugs and she figures ...more

The always tricky 2nd book in a series is nowhere to be seen in this brilliantly crafted tale.

Skye needs help taking down the drug dealing motorbike gang which has taken over her hometown, corrupted and beaten her baby brother. She ends up at the Devils Playground, after being pointed in that direction by a nurse at the hospital. She is out for blood but she may not get the level of revenge she was hoping for.

Sheryl Nantus is a new author for me making Hard Run a double pleasure. First, I enjoyed this romantic suspense story immensely which means, secondly, I have a new author’s work to read in my favorite genre. Since this is the second book in the Delta Force Brotherhood, of course, I had to go looking for the first book, finding it on sale. Yeah! Can’t say if it still is but this series is worth the cost.

I completely understood shy Skye’s need for revenge but it was refreshing to see that the Brot

What would you do if the person you care for is beaten and left in a coma? Who would you go to for help?
Skye Harris was put into a predicament that she must ask the same questions. But in her case the help that she needed come with the assistance of the Brotherhood. A group who specialize in the help that Skye needs that the police refused or their hands were tied in giving.
Sheryl Nantus will capture readers in her thriller of revenge and betrayal. What drew me in was the Synopsis of the book.

I requested and received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest opinion.

This is the first book by Sheryl Nantus I have read. I’m hooked! The cover drew me in, the description finished the deal.

This is one of my favorite genres, military romantic suspense….The main characters Finn and Skye meet through Delta Force’s Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is an ex-military team who looks out for the little guy, not to get revenge but help to get justice. Skye knows who is to blame for her brother being beaten,

This story is romantic suspense at its' best! Loved the Brotherhood and the fact that they are alpha males, hot, and help those that no one else can or will make them even hotter! Finn is chosen for this assignment because he can relate with the issues that Skye has come to the Brotherhood with and he soon realizes that he is in this way more than just as an assignment. Each member of the Brotherhood is in this 100% and has each of his brother's backs if the need arises. I enjoyed reading about ...more
