Becky "Rebel" Reichert never actually goes looking for trouble. It just has a tendency to find her. Like the day Frank Knight showed up at her door, wanting to use her motorcycle shop as a cover for his elite special ops team. But Becky prides herself on being able to hang with the big boys - she can weld, drive, and shoot just as well as any of them. Munitions, missiles, and mayhem are Frank's way of life. The last thing the ex-SEAL wants is for one brash blonde to come within 50 feet of anything that goes boom. Yet it's just his rotten luck when she ends up in a hostage situation at sea. Come hell or high water, he will get her back - whether she says she needs him or not.

Overall, I liked the book. Black ops group who use a specialized motorcycle shop as cover. I managed to get through the story, but the foul language was ridiculous. It seemed like every sentence included curse words. It got tiring after a while. So, just be aware if you're going to read or listen to the audible book. I did like the narrator.
I am an avid fantasy and urban fantasy reader. I also read a lot of millitary romance.
I hate to find a great series where only some books are released on audio. I buy and read the print versions but want a full collection on audio.
The series regularly references pop culture with quotes from movies and song lyrics. It is like the narater is from another planet and has no frame of reference when reading these quotes. it is really off putting.
I thought the chemistry between Becky and Frank was great. However, this is one of those books where a 5 minute honest conversation would have solved all problems. You have to go to the very end of the book to finally get to that conversation. Too much of the plot is written around the "big misunderstanding" and the suspense/action was very much on the thin side of the plot. Harkens back to the 80's contemporary romance where a plot line was all about the two main characters totally misjudgments/misunderstandings. Boring as a plot line in my opinion. The first book in this series was much better.
Much too predictable. The "big misunderstanding" is resolved and a new character is brought in as a set up for the next book.
Smokey...very good job actually.
A more action/suspense filled plot. Instead of junior high level of communication between two seeming adults.
I can't say it was terrible...it had some good moments. Just way too predictable.
