Sexual Intensity: hot

Story Overview:
A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

He's never met a challenge he couldn't take...

Alexis Yeung did everything right....only to watch everything go horribly, horribly wrong. Broken and angry, Alexis high-tails it to Europe, determined to face the world on her own terms and without consequence. Which includes a mind-blowing night with a sexy, scarred stranger.

Except, embittered former pararescuer Luke Jackson isn't exactly a stranger. He's supposed to keep an eye on Alexis without her knowing. Ending up in bed together was definitely not the plan. Now he's chasing her (admittedly hot) ass across Europe, a game of cat and mouse that always ends with the two of them tangled up in the sheets.

Something in their scarred, damaged souls calls to each other. And God help them, the sex in unbelievably hot. But if Alexis discovers who Luke really is, he'll lose the one thing that makes him feel whole...


My Review:
The premise on this one is interesting. 

Alexis has had some really hard years, but it comes to a head when her sister becomes pregnant...not that that is a bad thing, but it just points out to Alexis that maybe her life isn't all that she'd hoped or dreamed. She drops everything to go on an impromptu European tour. 

Luke has had his own troubles the last few years after an IED blew him up a little over a year ago. Like Alexis, he's a little broken and a lot scarred on the inside and out. But when Ryan comes to him to chase after and look over Alexis, he's not going to turn down a fellow PJ.

Throughout this story, these two characters are truly finding themselves again through one another. They've both dealt with huge blows to what they know about how they should function in life. As a result, they're floundering...for purpose...for 'why's'...for answers to where they go from here. Luckily, they do find those answers...with each other...and across an interesting jaunt across Europe...which is a fun setting/backdrop for the book. 

Overall, I liked it. I'll admit that you have to suspend a tiny bit of disbelief because Europe isn't a tiny place and for Luke to just find Alexis is highly unlikely. It's even more unlikely for him to honestly expect he could follow her across Europe and she wouldn't notice the same American lurking. But once I got past that, I did enjoy the story. 

I enjoy the angst that comes from emotionally wounded characters and both Luke and Amelia are great ones. It just creates such an emotionally satisfying story when main characters like this find healing through their love. This one was well done on that front. I also felt like I'd had an armchair tour of Europe at the same time. Overall it was a great escape for the afternoon.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
