****6 sweetheart stars****
What a pleasant surprise this book was! It grabs you from the very first page and takes you on the ride of your life! The romance between Liberty and Hetch is hot, tension-filled, and very sweet. It's amazing how the romance doesn't suffer in the midst of all the suspense, but it doesn't. I savored each word of every page thoroughly.
Hetch is the leader of a SWAT team, an elite unit used to resolve high-risk situations such as hostage rescue and riot control. He is trained to face dangerous and life-threatening situations. He's fearless, honest and loyal. He enjoys bonding with his teammates at a local bar and having sex with women without attachment. He's also haunted by his father's suicide right in front of his eyes, an event that has led to severe emotional and psychological trauma.
Liberty works with at-risk youth dealing with anger, violence, delinquency and other teen behavior problems. She is caring, strong, persistent, loving and selfless. After a messy break-up, she moves to a new place which is safer and closer to town. Everything is perfect, except for the paper thin walls due to which she is able to hear her neighbor next door having very noisy sex o_O !!!
One night, Liberty and Hetch meet at a bar and the passion between them heats up. Imagine their surprise when they realize that Hetch is actually Liberty's naughty neighbor!! Her growing attraction to Hetch is a little too much to handle.
Even knowing that, she can't help falling in love with the tough SWAT chief and losing herself in the games they play in the bedroom. Hetch is overwhelmed by his need for her. Unfortunately, painful memories of his father and life threatening situations at work will make it difficult for him to keep his relationship in balance.
The sexual chemistry and heat coming off the pages should have set the book alight. Hetch's passion run deep and hard. I had to fan myself a time or two. Everything about this book worked, on so many levels. The characters (even the secondary ones) felt real and well-rounded. The bond that the SWAT men had with each other was truly special. Also, I smiled a lot during this book!! In my opinion this story had the perfect build. It was realistic and heartwarming, at times heartbreaking. Yes, I did tear up in a few spots.
Ms. Savage really knows how to create a story that sucks you in and has you feeling all those emotions right along with the characters. This is a thrill ride you don't want to get off!! I absolutely loved it!
