[Kame's Review]: "Blowback"

Blowback by Emmy Curtis
Publisher: Forever Yours (November 3, 2015)
Series: Alpha Ops, 4
Genre: Contemporary Romance

One year ago, David Church kissed a beautiful, brilliant woman on an airfield in Iraq—and hasn't stopped thinking about her ever since. Now, the military veteran gets a chance to rekindle that fire when he sees his lost love again—looking sexier than ever—at an international conference in Athens. David yearns to take her in his arms, to hold her close and never let go. But when the bullets begin to fly, it's not just his heart on the line. It's his life.

When Molly Solent agreed to deliver intelligence for the U.S. government, she didn't realize she'd be caught in the crossfire of a surprise ambush—and underneath the hard-muscled body of David Church. Shielding her from harm and swearing to protect her, the elite bodyguard reignites a searing passion that Molly can't resist. But with unforeseen danger around every corner—and unquenchable desire in every embrace—falling in love could be the greatest risk of all...

Kame's Review:

Molly is about to leave for a speaking engagement in Athens when she is asked to pass a secret message to someone who will be at the same conference. How hard can it be, she gets to attend a cocktail party and do something for her country at the same time. That was until she heard the gunshot, and then she was on the floor, David shielding her with is body. David, the man she has not seen in a year and has dreamed about since he kissed her forehead in the airport when he said goodbye.

I think I held my breath most of this book.

I didn't remember much of David and Molly from the previous book, however it didn't take long for me to realize Molly has been in David's mind and heart since he kissed her forehead in the airport. David is the beating himself up for his past mistakes type of hero. In his mind he will never be worthy of Molly. They never shared more than that forehead kiss but Molly has thought of and waited for David every day since. Most will think Molly would be a shy reserved character. She may have a career as an archeologist and spends her time looking at things from the past, but Molly is all about taking charge of her future; and she sees David as a part of it.

This couple is HOT - as in you might need someone close by or a cold shower HOT. Their connection is more than physical. Some of their dialog just melted my heart too.

Blowback is a great installment in the Alpha Ops series. While it could be read as a standalone I think readers who are familiar with the series will enjoy the slight glimpses we get of previous characters. You might also notice an update on a past couple that will make you smile.

The only bad part - I have MONTHS to wait until the next installment.

4 1/2 STARS!
