Title: In the Line of Fire
Their passion burns white hot. But danger is heartless and cold.
Hot Desert Heroes, Book 1
Delaney Murphy has had a stomach-fluttering, mouth-watering crush on Beck since the first time she saw him over the rim of her regular morning latte. But she’s never been long on self-confidence, especially around exceptionally handsome men.
After a year of avoiding him, she’s shocked when he slides into the next chair and wears down her resistance to a first date.
When Laney is laid off from her job, Marines special ops veteran Beck “Gravedigger” Townsend wastes no time hiring the quiet, auburn-haired beauty into Red Eagle Group, his security firm. Keeping her within touching distance—and under his protection.
Laney’s smile and sharp intelligence light up Beck’s life and heat up his bed, yet he hesitates to give her what she really wants: full access to the darkest corners of his wounded spirit. But when danger is delivered right to Red Eagle’s door, the only way to save her—and their love—will be to bleed. Body and soul…
Warning: Adult language and graphic sex scenes between a man locked behind his secrets, and a woman ready to break free of her past. If you think the desert is hot, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Delany and Beck have been dancing around their attraction around a year and Beck decides its finally time to make the first move. Delany doesn’t know what Beck sees in her and she feels that Beck will get bored and move on. Beck will do whatever it is to keep Laney.
The blurb was what grabbed me because I love a shy woman trying her hardest to come out of her shell. I love to see the journey they go through and Delany’s was no different. I wish she wasn’t such a push over with the caveman Beck. I loved a caveman myself but Delany was claiming she wasn’t taking orders or anything from any man ever again.
I really wanted to absolutely love these characters but I couldn’t connect with them as much as I wanted. I love military romances but I just needed more substance between the characters and sub-characters. At certain times it will seem that the relationships were forced but once you get passed that it’s a really great book.
In the end this book had a great start and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
I was gifted a copy of this novel from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are solely my own.
