4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

Former M16 agent Hadley “Striker” Lockwood finds herself back in London working undercover as an employee of Secura to catch a rogue arms deal. But she quickly finds herself falling for the owner of Secura, Bennett Knightly. 

Hadley has been a wonderful member of the Sentinel Security team. She works hard, loves shopping, and keeps all men at a distance. Her past has taught her to never trust men but when she is forced to work with Bennett, she can’t ignore how much she wants him. I really enjoyed seeing Hadley opening up and letting go of her fears of being used. She is such a strong woman and she deserves to have a wonderful partner at her side, which is what Bennett is. 

Bennett is a veteran who built Secura to supply better armor and gear for soldiers. He wants to protect the people who risk their lives for their country. Bennett was a protective, caring, and extremely kind man. His company is filled with veterans who were struggling to readjust to civilian life. He goes out of his way to help his people and it really hurts him when something happens to them. Bennett was a sweetheart and I loved seeing him break down Hadley’s barriers and show her what a true partner can be like. 

These two had an intense and steamy relationship. In between dealing with threats and surveillance, they were attacking each other. These two had wonderful chemistry and I loved watching them drive each other crazy. Overall, this was a wonderful blend of action and romance. I am really enjoying this series and can’t wait to read the next book. 

Trigger Warnings: death of friends and comrades during war; bomb threats and detonations; gun violence; bodily injuries and blood;
