From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and Tarina Deaton comes an exciting collaboration…
Please, Jordan. It’s Emme.”
The last thing Major Jordan Grant expected was to be pulled off his unit’s deployment for a civilian mission. But when Titan calls, you answer — especially when the mission is to rescue the younger sister of your childhood best friend.
Moments away from death, NGO nurse Emme France could only pray for a miracle. The last person she expected to see in the smoke and dust was Jordan Grant, her teenage crush and litmus test of all the men she’d dated ever since.
Lying low at Titan’s exotic Abu Dhabi headquarters while the media furor around her rescue settles, Emme and Jordan explore a mutual attraction that is no longer young and innocent. Days in the desert paradise ignite desire and blur reality…until they return home, where Jordan rejoins his deployed unit and Emme is left alone to reevaluate her life and priorities.
Their passion was forged in the fires of combat. Will the home fires be enough to keep the burn alive?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Tarina Deaton blew me away with her first book Stitched Up Heart. When she asked me if I’d like an ARC of her next book, Rescued Heart, I was super disappointed there was no way I could get to it right away since I just knew it was going to be a great book, and I was right.
When Emme gets taken hostage in Africa, her family asks that Jordan, a ranger, go with Titan Security to rescue her. They’ve known each other almost all their lives and her family wanted her to have a familiar face there. She’s his childhood best friend’s little sister and she’s always held a special place in his heart. He not only agrees to this plan, he then stays with her for a couple of weeks while she recuperates away from the eyes of the press.
The rescue was heart-stopping and gave me the action that I absolutely crave. It then settles into a love story chock-full of feels and loads of sweetness. This was super sexy with lots and lots of steamy action between the sheets. No wham, bam, thank you, Ma’am’s here, Jordan knows how to take his time, do it right, and let his woman know how he feels the whole time.
The emotions are where this book shines. Even though it’s a novella, I felt them falling in love and as well as the sadness when they were separated. I was not a fan of the little monkey wrench thrown in towards the end, but I got over that. There were a few things that threw me a little, like why her parents didn’t rush to her side once she was rescued, but again, I ignored it all and focused on the awesome feels this book inspired.
Ms. Deaton continues to impress me with another solid read, that was sweet, sexy, and full of goodness that I thoroughly enjoyed.
