Title: The Medic
Author: Anna Hackett
Series: Norcross Security #8
Release Date: April 5, 2022
Siv Pedersen is the newest member of the Norcross team. She is determined to start a new life in San Francisco, one that includes no men for a while. But she doesn’t count on having to work with the handsome and tempting former combat medic, Ryder Morgan.
I loved these two. Siv is such a badass heroine and I think I have a little bit of a crush on her. Siv struggles to be accepted by men because of how independent and dangerous she can be. Too many men felt threatened by her and can’t deal with it, but not Ryder. He finds her strength and skills a turn on. I loved how he took every opportunity to tell Siv how amazing she was and how much he loved her ability to take care of herself.
Ryder was a great hero. He accepted all of Siv and never tried to change her, or prevent her from doing her job. He even lets her beat up some punks on her own because he knows she can take care of herself. Ryder is now one of my favorite men from this series.
Ryder and Siv have a very intense relationship with sparks flying from the very beginning. I loved every minute of it, especially the fact that Siv was the aggressor a lot of the time because I loved that this strong woman wasn’t afraid to take what she wanted. I really hope we see more of these two in future books because I really want more of them, especially if Siv is kicking some ass.
The mission these two are on was suspenseful but also a bit heartbreaking. It shows how easily the pharmaceutical industry can be corrupted. Overall, this was an interesting mission with a wonderful couple. I cannot wait to read Cam’s book now.
Trigger warnings: references to sibling death from cancer, death due to malpractice.
