Review – Promise To Defend (Rescue Ops #2) by Diana Gardin

The next sexy and suspenseful standalone in the Rescue Ops series.

By saving her, he might just save himself...

I'm broken. I have been for seven years. Ever since my wife was murdered while I was deployed overseas. I was protecting our country, but I should have been protecting her. I haven't looked at another woman since--but then Olive Alexander crossed my path. She stirs up feelings I thought were long dead. So when her house is ransacked after she receives a threatening message, I know I have to step in and keep her safe. I failed my wife, but I won't fail Olive. Unfortunately, Olive isn't exactly ready to accept my help...

With her sexy-as-sin pencil skirts and sleek ponytails, Olive clearly doesn't let anything--or anyone--mess up her perfectly ordered life. But years spent working as a special ops soldier has taught me how to read people... and I know Olive is hiding something. When my covert mission for Night Eagle Security collides with Olive's past, I'll have to get her to open up-or risk losing her. And losing Olive is not an option. If she's in danger, I'll defend her...even if it costs me my life.

Gardin’s Rescue Ops series continues with book two, Promise to Defend.  What’s not to love with sexy these former special ops military guys who’ve moved on to Night Eagle Security (NES) and the strong women they are drawn to?

Olive and Ronin haven’t had easy lives  They’re both still deeply affected by their pasts.  Neither is looking for “the one”.  Ronin is convinced he’s already lost the only woman he’ll ever truly love.  Olive uses her supreme control to insulate herself from life’s pains which makes it unlikely she’ll be open to love.  Though they are attracted, neither plans to act on it.

Ronin’s promise to his best friend to watch after Olive and a break at her home, bring the two together.  In the midst of a supremely intense situation where several worlds collide, the two begin to fall deeply for each other and it’s hot as hell.

Sure this is standard romance fare but Gardin’s writing makes it much more interesting than most.  She writes complex characters, realistic dialog and creates intense, suspenseful situations for interesting, fast-paced reads.  The kidnappings of the NES men’s girlfriends are becoming predictable, though.

Promise to Defend is another pleasurable read and I look forward to the next in the series which I hope involves one seriously clueless female nerd and a super capable spec ops bartender.
