EVERYTHING’S HOTTER IN TEXAS
When Marine Force Recon captain Cullen Loughman learns that his father’s been kidnapped, he will do whatever it takes to find him. In order to achieve his mission, Cullen will need to team up with the best of the best—someone who just happens to be the most stunning woman he’s ever laid eyes on…
This isn’t the first rodeo for ex—Air Force pilot Mia Carter. Still, Cullen’s bad-boy good looks and charm are distracting her from duty. . .and it appears that the feeling is mutual. As Mia and Cullen make their descent into a dark, dangerous world, their attraction reaches the boiling point. But is their desire worth the risk when a ruthless enemy is waiting in the wings—or will their Lone Star love conquer all? Reviewing this book without spoilers is, well, impossible. I have no idea how to do this. None.
So, what I can say...it picks up where the first left off, while also paralleling the events in the first, so you know what was happening concurrently to the first one.
I enjoyed Mia and Cullen. Their story was interesting and their relationship was compelling. I believed the heat and the tension between them and was drawn into their story, into their attraction, to one another.
The characters were interesting and reacted as you think they should (with no personal experience in a mess like they are in, I can only say it seemed real to me) and they were authentic.
The writing was strong. Some of the Orrin parts of the story dragged a little bit and while they advanced the story, I thought they could have been, possibly, a little shorter. But at the same time, the book worked overall.
It is a cliffhanger. Sort of. Mia and Cullen's story is finished, mostly, when it comes to their relationship...but the story is definitely a to be continued for the resolution of the major story that drew them all together.
I will definitely be reading the next in the series. I recommend this book.
