*A superb romantic suspense in book 3 of her sizzling hit series HOT by USA Today & NYT bestselling author Lynn Rae Harris. These steamy military love stories are definitely must reads!.......It's Christmas time again, and this year Billy " the kid" Blake is spending the holidays alone. Unlike last year, he spent Christmas with Olivia Reese wrapped up in his arms and he planned to spend all his future holidays with her from that moment on, but fate had other plans when Olivia allowed her insecurities rule her life when she walked out on him while he was away on a mission and Billy hasn't seen her since, and now she's back during a snow storm barefoot and freezing standing on his front doorstep begging for his help. She'd spent last Christmas consumed in his embrace where she was happy and filled with thoughts for the future, and Olivia Reese realized she made the biggest mistake of her life by walking out on the only man she ever loved, but truth be told, she was scared and even though she hadn't said the words in the past, she certainly felt them. She walked out, but he hadn't come looking for her either, and to see Billy again after all this time, it made her heart pinch tight with pain and regret. When Olivia stumbles upon evidence of a dangerous conspiracy on Christmas Eve, Billy's first instinct is to kick her out, but then he realized his only option is to help her. As a member of an elite group named Hot, ( Hostile Operations Team) Billy uses his black ops skills he needs to help her to uncover the truth, and now time is running out, and Billy and Olivia join forces by working together to stop a sinister plot. As their relationship rekindles, their passion reignites explosively and they find themselves seeking solace once again in each other's arms, while a lethal nemesis lies in wait with deadly intentions by making sure Olivia won't live to see the light of day once and for all!.......
3.5 Stars - Hot Package was a short novella type read. Olivia and Billy's story was quick and intense. I am still disappointed in the fact that this series started with a healthy full size story. I was expecting that each elite member of HOT would warrant that type of story. I believe, so far that each member deserves that, but I guess the author does not feel the same way. I already bought the whole series so I will keep reading. I came upon the author with her second and third series and decided those were really good so I wanted to go back to the very beginning. Unfortunately, besides Hot Pursuit, I have been disappointed. It is too bad, because as I said before... I believe these HOT heroes deserved better. They deserved a full length story.
Olivia finds information that shows falsified test results from the contractor she works for. She can't take a chance that the military follows through with the purchase. When she turns to her former lover Billy, member of the Hostile Operations Team, will he help her? Billy wants to avoid getting all tangled up over Olivia again but he desire to protect his country is stronger.
Loving this series and the HOT guys. I love that each book gives us insight into one of them on a deeper level but continues to bring all the guys together to work as a team. The author creates characters that I can fall in love with more every page. Can't wait to read the next book.
Look at the cover ladies you know what kind of book your getting so there is no need to bring up whether or not there are love scenes in it. Yeah, I'm pretty sure after seeing that cover your probably thinking there darn well better be some. LOL! This is a sort read actually was done on my Kindle at 84%. There is a preview to the next book in the series following this read. I feel the author did a great job at driving home that undying love between Billy Blake and Olivia Reese. If you've looked at the other reviews I feel they give you a good enough feel for what lies ahead. I enjoyed every moment of the ride and could easily picture each scene. The action was present as well as the romance and I'm so glad that Livie trusted that Billy was the only one she could trust, so even though her head told her to run away her heart brought her back again.
If you've enjoyed this book I can tell you that would also enjoy Marked by kaylea cross as well. I can't wait to see what is next in her next book Hot Pursuit which is next on my TBR list. Enjoy!

Love this spicy, Christmas novella from the HOT world. Billie Blake is smart, talented, hunky and still missing his ex a year after she left him. Olivia Reese knows now she should never have left Billie. When she receives information that points to fraud for military weapons being built by the company she works for, she knows Billie is the one she must contact. And she's right. An amazing melding of conspiracy, adventure, Christmas, second chances and love this novella is perfect.
Another great book from this series... I was enjoying it so much I'd have loved for it to have been a bit longer! But seriously - this is probably the first novella-length book I've read where the length perfectly suited the story. Sometimes the story in a novella can be over-developed and it all feels a bit squashed and rushed, but nope, not here!!
The book was written really well - the characters were completely believable, consistent and the writing flowed really well. The story was simple and featured a perfect blend of romance and suspense. Obviously due to the nature of the fiction, it's always going to walk that fine line between believability and ridiculousness, but this book manages to keep to the side of the former! After reading other books from this genre, I promise you that's no mean feat! I'm fast learning that Lynn Raye Harris books seem to be the kind of stories you can just relax into and enjoy - I can't wait to get stuck into book 4!

Can Billy and Olivia manage this without ever getting involved again?
I Love Lynn Raye Harris. If i could give more than 5 * i could but again i have to settle for 5
Book 3 and things are definitely getting toasty. Billy and Olivia's story is short but action packed. this has the makings of a great mini series on TV. I'd definitely watch it. I love the characters the author has created, you really feel you know them. My advice would be to read these in order to get the full flavour of the series. These guys are as deadly in bed as they are in the field. definitely a plus for their intended target. Great background story. Good value
5.0 out of 5 starsToo short!!!! My only complaint!!!

I needed a change from the type of books I'd fallen into reading recently, this really did the job. Sexy alpha ex-military, sizzling history with the female lead, but she needs his help, he carnt refuse her, that's when Billy started to re-melt Olivias heart. Loved the action, intrigue, and sizzle, my only complaint, this could have so been a full blown novel. Loved the series, looking forward to the next in the series. Give it a try, couple of hours to relax, this will hit the spot
