Review: Heated Pursuit (Alpha Security #1) by April Hunt


Penny Kline didn't come to Honduras on a pleasure trip. She's here to rescue her kidnapped niece, the only family she's got left. What she didn't plan on was walking into a covert ops mission---or being wrapped up in the hard-muscled arms of Rafe Ortega. The cool-as-ice operative's touch may get her all hot and bothered, but no man can have a hold on her heart until her niece is home where she belongs.

Even in the tropics, Alpha Security operative Rafe can take down the bad guys without breaking a sweat. Hostage extractions. Clandestine missions. Those are the things he's been trained to handle. Relationships? Not so much. But one look at this strong, sexy redhead and he's seized by a fierce urge to protect her at all costs. Now Penny and Rafe will have to up their game because they're about to go into a master criminal's lair without backup, and the danger---and passion---is about to explode . . .

Heated Pursuit has hot, sexy alpha males, a spunky, determined heroine and evil drug lords.  Everything needed to be hook a reader.

Rafe grew up in foster homes.  It’s heartbreaking that he’s never known love.  Not from parent and not from a woman.  He’s tight with his  Alpha Security buddies and functions well there so he’s not a lost cause.  Penny’s father was a harsh, absent military man but she had loving caregivers and a close relationship with Trey, her foster brother and Alpha Security operator.  Finding love is a bit of a challenge for Rafe and Penny, but I never believed their problems were insurmountable.  Following their progression, and a regression or two, proved very interesting.

Penny arrives in the middle of Alpha’s Nicaraguan operation and is not a welcome surprise.  She doesn’t have a clue her childhood friend and his group are already there.  Her mission is to find her niece.  Theirs is to take down the evil drug kingpin preparing to unleash a horrible new drug.  Rafe has enough on his hands.  He doesn’t need Penny in his way.  His attraction for her is quick and makes the situation more complicated than it already was.  In addition to trying to find the elusive Ortega, he finds himself working hard to protect Penny.

As the two pretend to be lovers to infiltrate Ortega’s operation their mutual attraction grows.  The sex is hot and not an act.  But it’s not just about sex with these two.  Deep in the jungle, trying to elude Ortega’s men, they fall deeper for each other.  Rafe is determined not to fall for Penny and fights his feelings throughout …until he can longer deny them.

The fight with armed gunmen, spectacular explosions, and traitorous lawmen is paced well and kept me wondering how in the world they would all get out of the situation and find their happily ever after.

Heated Pursuit is a good read with sympathetic characters and just the right amount of sex, love and danger.
