Review: Facing Fire (Bad Boys Undercover #3) by Helenkay Dimon


Be still my Strike Back ever loving heart! Seriously, fans of the former Cinemax show, Strike Back, will love love love this series. It’s full of gun-toting action, suspense, intrigue, hot-steamy sex scenes…the whole shebang, people!
Josiah King is an operative with the Alliance–a covert, black ops team dealing with bad guys in unconventional ways. The Alliance has an old enemy hunting them down, and he’s making it personal. We open with a brutal scene involving Josiah’s uncle. And Josiah and the team are forced to watch it unfold, helpless to stop it. Fueled by vengeance and determined to protect their own, the Alliance is relentless in their pursuit of this enemy.
Sutton Dahl is on a mission of her own. A private investigator from the U.S. is hunting the streets of Paris for the man who’s behind her mother’s death. However, thinking him a mere con-artist, she has no idea the danger she has truly put herself in. Sutton and the Alliance are after the same man.
Sutton’s digging around puts her on the Alliance’s radar, and in Josiah’s direct path. He thinks she’s working with the enemy, and she has no idea how much she can trust him with. Her snooping around however, has not gone unnoticed by their mutual enemy. And her life is in danger.
From start to finish, I was on edge with this book. The action is amazing and pretty much non-stop. Bullets fly. Bombs explode. Hostages are taken. Ms. Dimon does not hold back. And thus being true to the story she unfolds for us, not everyone walks away. The characters, every single one of them, fight for survival. The enemy is a ruthless, vile monster set on destroying them. And I ate up every word.
Oh and those steamy sex scenes I talked about. Yeah, the kind where you’re so damned attracted to someone and you don’t want to be, but your heart says “screw you” and takes the reigns, it’s like that. Hot, explosive, consuming and terrifying for Sutton and Josiah. Both of them are out of their element in this situation. And neither know if it’s the adrenaline driving them or if they have an actual shot at something more once the dust settles. But before they can decide that, they have to survive.  
I highly recommend this read. 5 explosive stars from me.

 

I couldn’t resist giving you a visual of my Josiah (AKA Philip Winchester)

Book Tour: The Lies Between Us By M.N. Forgy

Cherry’s life growing up was nothing short of a nightmare. Having an abusive father forced her to fend for herself from an early age. Bruised and emotionally broken, she finally escaped, running straight into the comfort that Lip’s arms brought. In the beginning, everything seemed to fall into place perfectly. He made her forget the messed-up ways of her life. But secrets can’t stay neglected. They have a habit of revealing themselves regardless of the consequences. Terrified, Cherry can’t speak a word or she’ll lose it all.

Lip is no stranger to the criminal life. Growing up among convicts, he wanted nothing more than to show his worth. He’ll do anything for the club without question, including serving six years in prison. But nobody could have predicted life’s plan. Rugged, tattooed, and wanting nothing more than to have Cherry, Lip is no longer the man whom Cherry remembers. After his release, he came out a beast with more secrets and lies than his cage could hold.


I will admit that while I was curious about Cherry and Lip’s story, I wasn’t sure if I would be super excited to read it.  I think it is because up until now they were almost a second thought, not someone in your face like the previous books have been.  I was so wrong to ever think that.  I have always said secrets and lies will come back to haunt you, especially if they are something that can destroy relationships.  The Lies Between Us was titled perfectly because the lies that are told are not only life changing but also heart breaking.  I literally was on the edge of my seat with my stomach flipping because you could feel the angst pouring out of your kindle and into your body. 
Cherry’s past broke my heart, I understood why she kept the secret she did.  She had so much to lose and nothing to gain if it came out.  Her feelings for Lip were real, solid and honestly I don’t know any woman who would stick around for as long as Cherry did after Lip went to prison after only knowing him for such a short time.  Lip is an asshole when he is released, and when certain secrets come to light I wanted to kick him straight in the balls.  I hated it.  I hate lies.  I hate heartbreak and for a while there I hated Lip.  He does win me back over though so have no fear.

M.N. Forgy, woman, you blew me away.  Each book of this series has gotten better and better.  You know how to make your reader’s hearts shred apart before you repair the damage you inflicted.  I am an addict needing my next Devil’s Dust fix.  This is a series that needs to be on everyone’s TBR lists, it will keep you on that edge between heaven and hell and right before you think you are falling and will lift you up and show you why life and love may not always be easy but it’s worth fighting for.
After he leaves, I open his wallet, reading his name, address, weight. All of it.
“Phillip DeLuca.” I taste his name running off my lips as I trace my finger over his picture. He’s so handsome. He’s the kind of guy most people would be afraid of, but not me. I want to get to know him. Lost in a daydream, my car door is yanked open.
“Where the fuck is it, bitch?”
“What?” I shriek as I’m pulled out of the car and slammed forward onto the hot hood. “I don’t have anything!” I scream, trying to pull free. He shoves me back down on the hood. His hand tangled in my hair.
“Don’t think about moving,” he spits, his tone harsh. I roll my eyes and continue leaning over the hood. My heart slams against my chest in pure panic, and my hands shake. He pulls away and leans in to the car. Within seconds, he finds his wallet. Shit.
He peers at me with a fierce energy in his eyes. The intensity has me pulling off the hood, scared out of my mind.
“You have some balls,” he mutters, shoving his wallet back in his pocket. His tone is soft and tender suddenly. I turn my head and eye him angrily.
“Fuck you.” I cross my arms and lean my hip against the car. My choice of words more confident than I’m feeling.
He steps up to me and grabs my hips hard with both hands. My skin burns, and my mouth parts with desire. His brown eyes find mine, and his hands yank my body closer to his. I feel like all the air is sucked from my lungs as I search his dark eyes. Placing my hands on his solid chest to steady myself, my palms buzz with excitement.
“You’d like that, wouldn’t you?” He looks me up and down and leans in close. “You’d like it if I pushed you over the hood of this car and fucked you ‘til your legs gave out.” His words feather against my lips, he’s so close. I hold my breath, willing my body to pull away, but I don’t move. Just when I think he’s going to kiss me, he grabs my hand and pulls it upward. I furrow my brows and watch as he pulls a pen from his back pocket, pulling the cap off with his teeth. He writes his number and the word ‘Lip’ on my hand.
“Call me. Don’t make me come find you, Cherry.”
“Cherry?” I ask out loud.
“Your swimsuit,” he yells over his shoulder before starting his bike. I look down at my white shirt noticing my cherry bikini peeking out from the bust line. A smile creeps across my face. I know I shouldn’t like him, but I kind of do. Driving past me, he winks and I swear I sigh like a damn fool.

Blog Tour: A WILDer Kind Of Love By Angel Payne

AWKOLBTBanner

AWilderKindofLoveCover
The WILD Boys are back! USA Today Bestseller Angel Payne continues the hotter-than-hot series with this sensual story featuring CIA special agent Daniel Colton.

A scarred hero… Dan Colton was once the CIA’s golden boy, a get-things-done cowboy who believed forgiveness was better to ask for than permission. But performing the devil’s work was always easy with his angel’s face, a damn good asset to have whether he was charming agency superiors…or training submissives in his dark dungeon role plays.

Until his face was taken away.

An act of ultimate bravery has spit Colton back out as a bitter shell, unsure how to relate to the world without his physical calling card. His only condolence is dreaming of revenge on the bastard responsible for the fire that disfigured him, but when that plan backfires, he is a beast without prey—tormented by a beauty he cannot touch.

A willing submissive… Tess Lesange, known around the CIA’s Vegas office as “The Laser”, has only one Achilles heel—in the form of the brooding agent who once wouldn’t give her the time of day. Since Dan Colton’s accident, they’ve become friends, even trusting each other with some of their kinkier secrets. What are friends for, right?

Wrong.

A dangerous masquerade… Now Dan has become Tess’s greatest joy, toughest torment, and most sinful desire. Thoughts of surrendering to his rough brand of domination consume her, but Dan thinks of her as nothing more than the brainy analyst in the next office over.

Still seeking the submissive dream, Tess takes matters into her own hands and journeys in disguise to one of the desert’s most elicit kink clubs. When the Dominant she meets there is also beneath a mask, his voice so alluring and familiar, she wonders if karma has conspired to fulfill one of her deepest fantasies…and what price she’ll have to pay for it come true. Is she willing to sacrifice everything she’s built in a friendship with Dan, for one unforgettable night in his dungeon?

So when I found out there was going to be another WILD Boys novel I did an extremely embarrassing happy dance, I may have also pledged my undying love to Angel Payne, and I may have had my husband shaking his head in a “Why did I marry this crazy ass person” type of way.  If you haven’t taken the blatant hints I was excited about A WILDer Kind Of Love being released.  I have loved this series since I was asked to review the books when it started and that love has continued to stay strong.  Angel Payne knows how to make these alpha men extremely sexy (in their own ways) that can get your panties wet, she can make you laugh, and she can make you fall in love with the book over and over again.
I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys, and  I know I say that a lot and must sound like a broken record, but with this series there is so much action, sexy times, and emotions that it would be so easy to spoil it and I don’t want to ever do that.  Plus I WANT you to read the books, if you haven’t read them from the start then please do so because they are just that good.  Now I am going to say this, my heart broke for Dan because of what he went through and because of how he viewed himself after.  Healing can come in many forms, but I think the way Angel Payne heals Dan with Tess is in my opinion perfect.

This one is jam packed with action, drama, panty wetting sex scenes and all of the things we have come to expect and love in this series.  Make sure this is added to your TBR list immediately!

button excerpt
“Little rose.” Tess jumped out of her chair. Literally. Not that it had been a particularly comfortable chair. She’d found another wingback in the second of Catacomb’s living room areas, hoping she’d have better results in here at the whole calm-down-and-talk-to-somebody-dammit efforts. And did all that go for you, missie? Did changing rooms help you escape one drop of the feeling that you’ve showed up at Prom without a date, three damn nights in a row? She’d given herself until eleven o’clock to get the stick out of her ass and strike up a conversation with somebody, or just leave. No use sticking around until midnight when she didn’t even have mice, a pumpkin, and glass slippers to worry about. And all of a sudden, her fairy godmother of BDSM had gotten a huge clue. And delivered a prince who defied her wildest, kinkiest dreams. And not because he instantly reminded her of Dan. Get off the Colton crazy train! Now! It was his hair. It looked so much like Dan’s dark blond waves, she was initially captivated—though her perception was likely hindered by the thick velvet strings from his mask, tossing all kinds of shadows through his thick style. And about that mask… Dear God. Sometimes great minds really did think alike. Though it covered half his face and transformed his eyes into daunting mysteries, she tilted a little smile. She was looking for daunting, right? She’d just had no idea how much. And one look at this man, powerful and beautiful and looming before her in nothing but his huge black boots, faded jeans, and that mask, revealed he probably had a doctorate in daunting. She’d only concentrated on his covered parts so far, too. The face she couldn’t quite decipher. The legs, endless and powerful, converging at a bulge beneath his zipper that stripped the moisture from her throat. But everything else was… Dear God. It bore repeating. Probably out loud. If she could only figure where the hell all her air had gone. He was beautiful. Almost unreal. She’d only had this sensation a few times in her whole life, like the moment she’d gazed at her first Michelangelo statue in Rome, or gasped at a Cirque performer who supported three others in his palm. His lean but rock-hard build emphasized every captivating striation of his muscles: the hard ropes of his neck, the shoulders and arms that rivalled Red Rock for ridges, the abdomen that was another mountain range all on its own, as well. He moved a little closer to her with grace that reminded her of an eagle’s flight, deadly force honed for efficiency and grace. Was he even real? She yearned to reach out and learn that answer for herself. She’d never been more afraid to move in her life. She cleared her throat. Tried to straighten her stance—but then wondered if she should lower her head, instead. Or bow. Or curtsy? Or shake his hand? Hell. She was the girl who’d read every damn research book on dungeon etiquette, right? But now she really did feel like the girl at the prom with toilet paper attached to her heel. “Hi,” she finally managed. “I—I mean hello. Hello, Sir. I—I mean—” If she really had something to say after that, it would’ve have disappeared as soon as he lifted her hand between both of his and stepped closer, as if trying to figure her out more fully. His skin was firm and warm, his grip a steady command his eyes still impossible to read. “Ssshhh. Breathe, red.” Red. Though she liked playing up the unique color of her hair, she always cringed when someone used the too-typical nickname. But on his lips, the words were transformed into something new. Magical. “Breathe. Right. Okay…right. God. I am so sorry. You must think I’m so—” She injected a weak laugh. “I’m normally better at the whole stringing-a-sentence-together thing, I promise.” Why was she blowing this so bad? And why did he make it worse with his disarming grin and his tightening hold? And the simple force of his presence. And the intensity of his nearness. And the potency of his scent. How could the combination of Scotch and dust suddenly smell so incredible? “Why are you sorry? I’m the one who intruded.” “Oh, yeah. ‘Intruded.’” She blew out a pseudo raspberry. “Because there was so much going on here in my corner to intrude on.” “There would have been.” His mutter edged so close to an animal’s timber, she shivered a little. Tess had listened to enough radio spy chatter over the years to know the small disc on his neck was a voice distorter of some sort, which should have raised her wariness—instead, it only added to his allure. Her pulse thrummed, a current strange yet wonderful. While she felt at once safe, she also knew she shouldn’t…not this much, not this fast. The conflict only hastened to her reckless heartbeat, especially as he added, “Then I would’ve had to bounce a few skulls together.” “Why?” She knew how stupid it sounded. The possessive snarl beneath his words spoke enough meaning for anyone to figure out—except, perhaps, for her. The “protective” thing was usually her gig, a default when one was looking out for sisters who were “the pretty one” and “the smart ass,” so grasping the concept that anyone wanted to look after her in the same way… Weird. Very weird. But ohhh…so nice. Really nice. Still, she braced herself for his teasing chuckle. Maybe some sarcastic quip at what a “silly subbie” she was for not comprehending his intent. Once more, the man turned her expectations sideways. No. Fully upside-down. Her senses careened as he released a hand, lifting it to her jaw, yanking up her whole face for the focus of his fathomless gaze. “Why?” he repeated. “Because I’m pretty well set on having you all to myself tonight, rose.” His fingers pressed in. “Unless you aren’t interested in what you see?” She laughed. She couldn’t help herself. “You’re kidding, right?” “At the risk of being trite, do I look like I’m kidding?” “At the risk of being obnoxious, do I look like a nun? Because that’s the only situation I can imagine you being turned down, Sir Sexy.” Air pushed past his smirk. His thick stubble disguised the exact edges of his lips but the flash of his teeth briefly showed her that they were curved and lush…and maybe a little wicked. Wicked. Right behind daunting on what she’d come here looking for.

button About the author

Bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and French kissing.

She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.

Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), and the popular W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, as well as several stand-alone titles. TheCimarron series and the Once Upon a Sin series both launch in 2015.

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, and hanging at the beach with family and friends.

Virtual Tour: Protector For Hire By Tawna Fenske

Haunted by his time in Iraq, former soldier Schwartz Patton goes off the grid, retreating deep into Montana’s untamed wilderness. Now, ten years into his self-imposed solitude, his brother tracks him down and asks for a favor. A woman is in danger, and she needs help…and Schwartz is the only one who can protect her.
Designer-loving city girls like Janelle Keebler don’t belong in the wilderness. Unless, of course, they’re witnesses to a murder by their psycho drug-trafficking ex-husbands. Still, Janelle can’t help the immediate physical response she has to her sexy-as-sin protector that leaves her wanting more than she could have ever imagined. Even if he does make terrible coffee…
Every word, every touch, every kiss ignites a need Schwartz thought he’d lost forever. He can’t stop the desperate attraction simmering between him and Janelle, even if he wanted to. Even if it means it could get them both killed.

I know when I read a book by Tawna Fenske I am going to get some laughs, some romance, a couple eye rolling moments, and over all a good book to pass the afternoon or night with.  Protector For Hire had all of those things and didn’t disappoint. On a side note, if you haven’t read this series from the start you can get away without missing too much but you would understand some of the histories and dynamics of the group if you began by reading the first book.
I have wanted to know about the reclusive Swartz since I started this series and he was honestly kind of like I pictured him in my mind, hard outside but a soft and warm center on the inside.  There is a reason for his seclusion and as a wife of a former military member I felt for him because I know that is always a huge fear for anyone going into a war zone.  Yeah I am not saying what that is because I want you to read it for yourself.  I liked Janelle’s character as well, she was what Swartz needed in his life even if he did fight his feelings. 

Overall Protector For Hire was good for some laugh out loud moments, those eye rolls I told you about (but they weren’t a bad thing I promise), a feeling that love can help heal old wounds, both physical and emotional, and that everyone deserves a little happiness in their life.

Release Blitz: Raber Wolf Pack By Ryan Michele

“There will come a time in our world when greed, power and wealth will overrule good judgement, and packs will be destroyed.”
In the blink of an eye, everything can change, altering life as we know it forever. 
Zara was happy and carefree, until receiving her gift from the heavens. Her world tilts completely on its axis when she faces torture at the hands of a person meant to love her. Forced into a life of servitude, she’s left only a shell of her former self.
Lifemates are a gift all their own. A powerful link that can’t be broken. 
Zara crosses paths with Xavier, Alpha of the Raber Pack, and the one time playboy finds himself drawn to the broken woman. As their connection flares to life, he grows determined to unleash the spitfire she hides within. 
Little does Xavier know that in finding Zara, he’s ignited a flame that could destroy everyone’s lives…
If you are looking from a change of pace from your ordinary shifter books then Raber Wolf Pack is one that you need to add to your TBR list immediately.  I am a huge paranormal fan and I especially love a good shifter book, and this one was a great start to the series.  Add to the shifter aspect is a little bit of magic and it just gave it that little bit extra something I have been looking for.  This is a pretty quick read that kept me turning one page after another until I reached the very end.  It is fast paced, it is sexy it has action, alphas, it has shifters and it has magic. 

I hope that Ryan Michele plans to release the next book soon so I can see what will happen next to not just this alpha pair but the entire pack.  If a certain female shifter happens to get a swirly in the toilet for being a nasty bitch well then that would be the icing on the cake for me.  If you like shifters and paranormal books give this one a try I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.

“Wow what a completely different shifter book. I loved every second of it.” ~ Goodreads Reviewer

“I love me some sexy wolves, especially when the story is as fresh and unique as Ryan Michele’s Raber Wolf Pack.” ~ Goodreads Reviewer

“Can you say holy hell balls of hotness? Raber Wolf Pack: Book One was an absolutely amazing read! If you are looking for one hot, sexy as hell Alpha look no further than Michele’s Xavier.” ~ Goodreads Reviewer

Ryan Michele has a huge obsession with reading, which only came to life after her best friend said she had to read Twilight. After reading that series, her entire world changed in the blink of an eye. Not only was she sucked into new worlds and all of the wonderful words authors put down on paper, she felt the urge to begin to write down the characters that played inside of her head. In doing so, Safe was born. When she’s not reading or writing, she spends time taking care of her two children and her husband, enjoying the outdoors and laying in the sun.

Virtual Tour: Witness To Passion By Naima Simone

Under his protection and in his bed…
For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Unfairly fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family… Yeah, birthdays suck.
Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister’s reckless—and gorgeous—best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her…even if she objects.
The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers—and clothes—are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love…if they survive long enough to see it.
Let me take a moment to appreciate that sexy cover.  *Sigh* I guess I should wipe the drool from my mouth before I start typing my review.  Now I know you are probably asking yourself does the hotness level of the cover transfer to the book?  Hmmm, should I tell you or should I make you squirm for a few minutes before answering?  I think I will let you squirm. *wink*
First off you guys know that a romance with a military or previous military guy are ones that top my lists as favorites, I have never tried to hide the fact that it has to do with my own sexy military man in my life, my husband.  So I tend to devour these books just as fast as the authors can write them, well that is if they are done right, are sexy, and are a good book.  Let’s add to that, some suspense, action, humor and of course romance and I am in book whore heaven.  Witness To Passion did not disappoint on any of those things.  And yes it is as hot as the cover, Shane is now on my ever growing list of new book boyfriends to love.  The chemistry and pull between Shane and Fallon was undeniable.  I love that Fallon had a crush on Shane prior to everything that happens.  I just love seeing when crushes manifest into a real relationship, when in real life it may not always happen.
Witness To Passion does not disappoint and I am looking forward to not only reading more of this series but from this author as well.  Prior to Witness To Passion I had not read anything my Naima Simone, but I will be remedying that very quickly.

Virtual Tour: Falling Hard By Helenkay Dimon


After a grueling assignment with the black ops force known as the Alliance, Weston Brown is craving downtime. Instead, he’s pulled into his deadliest operation, in the one place he never wanted to see again. No-nonsense and so damn hot, Lexi Turner lied to get him to her mountain clinic in Pakistan. But the threat is terrifyingly real.
Lexi has been asking too many questions, drawing the wrong kind of attention. As soon as she lays eyes on West, she can tell he’s quiet—yet tough—and has a rescue complex which will come in handy for going up against the world’s most ruthless gunrunners.

Cut off from the rest of the Alliance, Lexi and West navigate the brutal terrain and a primal sexual attraction. Sticking around has never been West’s way, but now he’ll use every resource to keep Lexi by his side, safe from a killer who leaves no loose ends behind.


What can I say, I have a thing for military suspense action romance books.  There is just something about a sexy military hero that gets my book pulse racing.  Falling Hard isn’t an exception, but while I didn’t fall head over heels in love with it I did really enjoy reading about Lexi and Wes.  Please make sure you read the previous books before starting Falling Hard, I think it will make you enjoy this book even better.  Especially since the series is about the members of Alliance.
There was action, there was suspense, there was sexiness and there was romance.  So why didn’t I fall in love with it like I had hoped?  Honestly I don’t know.  I devoured the previous book, so maybe I had too high of expectations when I started Falling Hard, but for me it missed the mark that Playing Dirty had that drew me in and kept my attention from start to finish.  I honestly think it may have been my mood at the time so, keep that in mind because if you are a fan of military, action, suspense and romance like I am then I think you will really enjoy Falling Hard.  I know I plan on reading more by this author that is for certain.

Excerpt 
After spending most of his adult life in the Marines, Weston Brown recognized a shithole when he stepped right in one. He had no one else to blame for this assignment. Just his piss poor decision-making. Next time his team leader told him about an optional operation, he’d take a pass. Wouldn’t kill him to sit one out now and then.
With his gun in his hand and his finger skimming along the side, right off the trigger, he scanned the area, squinting to check his surroundings in the fading light. Skardu, Pakistan. The town served as the launching area for high-altitude climbing expeditions. Dusty and barren, filled with grayish-brown boulders and outlined by a towering mountain range. A few rivers and bursts of green provided by man-made irrigation systems broke through the rough landscape.
This was not his idea of the ideal vacation spot, and that’s what he was supposed to be doing—taking mandatory leave—forced rest between assignments with the Alliance, the elite black ops fighting force put together mostly from the United States’ CIA and MI6, the British intelligence service.
The work suited him since he wasn’t a desk guy, but it wouldn’t be a bad thing to go a week or so without choking or shooting someone. When his eyes locked on the target dead ahead, he knew the no-violence thing wasn’t going to happen today.
He’d done this a million times. Careful steps, slowed breathing. A mental countdown to impact. Calculating the risks and preparing a second option if this one went sideways. He’d been trained to be ready—always. To kill without thinking.
His boot hit the ground right behind the armed unknown leaning against a tree and aiming his weapon at the building in the distance. The guy must have sensed him because he flinched a second before contact. Started to turn. West locked his arm around the guy’s neck before he could call out and bring his friends running.
Flailing and full of panic, he had one last burst of energy. The bottom of the guy’s shoes scraped against the loose pebbles on the ground as he beat his fists against West’s arm. West pressed harder and the guy fell in a heap in the dirt.
West had been using the choke hold since boot camp. Just shy of thirty-four and he could still take a man down in less than four seconds.

Oorah.
