Alpha Security operative Trey Hanson is ready to settle down. When he meets a gorgeous blonde in a bar, and the connection between them is off the charts, he thinks he's finally found the one. But after their night together ends in a hail of gunfire and she disappears in the chaos, Trey's reasons for tracking her down are personal . . . until he learns she's his next assignment.
Elle Monroe never expected to see Trey again. The night they shared was incredible, but the last thing she's looking for is a relationship. Now that it's clear she's being targeted, though, she has no choice but to trust this man she barely knows with her life. And Trey's not just determined to keep her safe . . . he's determined to win her heart.
Overall reaction to the story? April Hunt is yet another new to me author that wowed, dazzled, and had me vowing to come back for more. The pacing was perfect for a romantic suspense, and the characters were delightful.
Did you like him? Yes.
Why? Trey is all alpha but at the same time the guy has a soft, gooey center that was just waiting for the right woman. The author really made Trey seem like a realistic character. He wasn’t too “macho” but he wasn’t incompetent at his job either. He was fun but he could also be intense. I just loved how charming this guy could be and sure, he could be a bit bossy but I could forgive that in light of the situation he and Elle found themselves in. I should be so lucky to have a one nighter with a guy like him!
Did you like her? Yes.
Why? I’m so picky about romantic suspense, I need the heroine to be something special, a cut above the rest and Hunt delivered. When Elle is introduced she’s basically trying to find herself and her inner strength after having dealt with some big time jerks in her life. I liked her, she wasn’t perfect but that’s what I liked about her. She was determined to do things her own way but she wasn’t so stupid as to think she could do a better job of protecting herself than a trained professional. She did have one or two moments where I wasn’t too pleased with her as a character but other than that she was a pretty neat heroine.
Click It or Skip It? Even with the closed door scenes, Holding Fire delivers on action, romance, and likable character. I’m definitely a fan.
