The blurb: Navy SEAL Adam “Blade” Garrison’s assignment to infiltrate a tech billionaire’s criminal operations just got complicated. His cover: bodyguard for the man’s wife. His problem: Blade knows Quinn Halliday far too well. A sophisticated version of the chubby, shy girl Blade once knew, Quinn brings out all his protective instincts—as well as a few carnal ones that surprise him.

Quinn’s pride in having improved herself has turned bitter. She’s trapped in a relationship with a brutal man who views her as nothing more than a possession. Blade’s unexpected arrival makes her hope for more than a barren existence in a gilded prison. Until tragedy strikes, and Quinn realizes she’s next on the hit list.

Blade will do anything to shield Quinn from danger and keep her safe. But as they draw closer, an enemy works to flush them out. If he succeeds, he’ll put an end to Blade and Quinn’s budding happiness.

Unless Blade and his SEAL Team strike first…

Standalone or series: Book six n the HOT SEAL team series, but can be read as a standalone

The review: This is the first book by Lynn Raye Harris that I have read, but it won’t be the last! I enjoyed this book very much. It was action packed with incredibly well written protagonists and a love story set amongst the background of several cities, primarily Hong Kong.

Adam and Quinn went to school in Hong Kong together; they both had parents working for an international bank. Quinn was a chubby redhead, and was therefore bullied. Adam stepped in to stop it happening, and then Quinn followed him around. They eventually became friends, although he was oblivious to her crush on him.

They kept in touch for a while, but he went into the navy and they drifted apart. When Adam is tasked with going to Hong Kong to go undercover as a bodyguard for a rich American’s trophy wife because the husband is suspected of some very shady dealings, Adam baulks at first, even though he knows he’s been chosen because he speaks Cantonese. But when he finds out the trophy wife is none other than Quinn Evans, he can’t resist the temptation to see her again.

Quinn has worked hard to transform her appearance over the years. She lost all the weight she had when she was younger and her self confidence soared. She married Hunter Halliday because he swept her off her feet, but after the ring was on her finger she discovered – the hard way – that she really didn’t know the man she’d married after all. He sees her as one of his most precious possessions, not a partner. She’s stuck in a marriage she wants out of desperately, but there seems to be no way out.

Until her new bodyguard turns up. Quinn can’t believe Adam is standing right in front of her, but she doesn’t let on she knows him, fearful Hunter will send him away. Once Adam learns about the state of the marriage, he’s determined to do whatever it takes to get her out of it.

What follows is a story that will keep you up long into the night. If you love SEALs, mysteries, and an amazing hero and heroine you’ll be cheering for, read this book. Now, I need to read the rest of Lynn’s books 😀
