Wow Reina Torres did it again with her wonderful story telling. I loved the fact that this story takes place in Hawaii. Plus they are Special forces and Alpha what else can you ask for. If you love special forces and romance with suspense this book is for you. I cant wait to read more in the series with these awesome characters and their friendships. Jackson is the type of Men you want by your side when things go down for sure. The love he shows for the Hero

Rescuing Hi'ilani by Reina Torres is a surpense full, turn pager. This is the story of Jackson (Ajax) and Hi'ilani. When Jackson joins the Delta Force it is drummed into his head that you can't have it all, so he walks a way from the woman he loves with all his heart. Only after meeting a couple of men from a Delta Force in Texas and seeing how happy they are with their lady love does he realize maybe he can have it all. Hi'ilani worked hard to put herself back together after the break up and ho ...more

Author Reina Torres does us proud with her newest book Rescuing Hi’ilani - Delta Force! I love how she blends in the Hawaiian Culture into her story. Doing location romances are sometimes difficult, but the storyline is amazing and the addition of culture makes it a truly wonderful story.
The Delta Force characters are terrific very much in tune with previous Delta Force Members. Hi’ilani’s Ohana are wonderfully entertaining!
Great read, with just the perfect amount of sass, action and love!

I enjoyed this military-themed second chance story that takes place in Hawaii and will have members from Delta Forces located in Texas. It will be an eye-opener for Ajax when he is called upon by his commander to meet with a couple of Delta men from Texas. What a surprise to learn the men are happily married and their wives have accompanied them on this trip. It will be the catalyst for changes for Jackson and the hope of winning back the love of a very special

Rescuing Hi’ilani is set in Hawaii and I loved how Reina incorporated the Hawaiian culture and mannerisms, even teaching us and the other Haole how to read and speak like a local.

In the book we meet Hi’ilani who loved by everyone in her community, she is a great singer, dancer and going on to TV-stardom, but the one person she wants to love left her brokenhearted.

It has been drilled into Jackson Guard’s head that being an Army Delta Team leader means that he can’t have a family. With her prote
This is part of the Special Forces: Operation Alpha and Delta Force Hawaii series. It was such a good book! I really enjoyed reading it. Jackson is in Delta Force and was always told that being part of that was a great sacrifice and he had no time for a woman. So, he broke up with the Hi’ilani, the only woman that he had loved. Then he met with other Delta Force members from the mainland. They had their wives with them so now he had to do some major thinking. He’s going after her again and do wh ...more

I want to start by saying that I really enjoyed Rescuing Hi'ilani it was filled with Romance and action. We start with Jackson better known as Ajax when he asked to show two other couples around Hawaii. And then getting to know them he realizes what he's been missing. I'm regretting his choices all because of a simple command. And then during Hi'ilani's performance something happens they can take it all away. What I loved most was the Slow Burn of the romance, the getting-to-know-you and finally ...more

Right now Romances that revolve around members of the special forces are my favorite. Jackson was told that men on the Delta force team couldn't afford personal relationships, so he left the love of his life,Hi'ilani. Jackson knows this is for own protection, but he still breaks her heart in the process. He decides, after meeting some fellow Delta teams that have made their relationships work despite the uncertainty and risk surrounding their job, to make amends with the only woman he ever reall ...more

What a wonderful and sigh worthy second chance romance that will definitely put a smile on your face. Hot Delta Force kicka$$ hero? Check. Talented and sweet heroine in need of a good hero? Check. Some fun interactions with hero's Delta friends. Check. Lovely Hawaiian backdrop? Check. Some action that isn't too scary or heart palpitating? Check. Heart palpitations due to sexy reunited love making? Hell yeah! What more can you ask for in a story? I highly recommend this wonderful story.

Second chance love at its best

Being a Delta Force meant Jackson would have to sacrifice many things, including loving Hiilani. I love second chance books and this book as everything. Drama, intrigue, suspense, action, and a steamy over the top love story. Jackson and Hi’ilani have an amazing chemistry with themselves and the secondary characters in this book just deliver just the right amount involvement in the story to make it work.

He is a member of a very private Delta Group. He thought he had no right to love some one who he would need to keep secrets from. Now she back after witnessing a murder.

I loved this story! It was a sweet HEA with some angst but without a lot of violence, blood and guts. The characters were strong and still exhibited humor. I was impressed with a "macho man" who had heart and was smart enough to apologize for making the wrong choice. Now I want to read about Train and Baron.

Thank you, Reina, for a little bit Hawaii.

This book was gifted to me by the other in return for an honest review. 👍👍

I thoroughly enjoyed this second chance romance. Hot, romantic, emotional, with enough intrigue to keep the plot moving along at a good pace. The setting is beautifully described, you really get a feel for being in Hawaii. Main and supporting characters pull you in and make it a pleasure to become invested in the story.
