A new standalone romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Lynn Raye Harris. Sexy, action-packed, and thrilling!
Tell Dex I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have let it go this far. I’ve thought for a while that marrying him wasn’t right, that I’m not the woman for him—I should have been brave enough to say so. He deserves more.
When Dex “Double Dee” Davidson was abandoned at the altar by the woman he loved, he threw himself into his military career, training hard enough to get accepted into the elite Black Ops unit known as HOT. The love he felt for Annabelle Quinn burned to ash in the face of her betrayal—so when she crashes back into his life and begs him to save her, he has no problem laughing in her face.
Blackmailed into jilting Dex and forced into an abusive marriage, Annabelle never thought she’d escape the hell of the last five years. But her husband died a month ago and she’s finally free. Except she isn’t. Someone claims that Eric stole a fortune—and they want it back. If she doesn’t return it within twenty-four hours, she’ll be dead—and so will her young daughter. With time running out, Annabelle has no one to turn to. No one except Dex.
When Dex learns that Annabelle’s husband committed treason against the US by selling a top secret military project to the Russians, he has no choice but to get involved. He’ll protect Annabelle and her child, and he’ll find out who’s threatening her. But he won’t fall for her intoxicating sensuality ever again. And if he discovers the secret she’s been hiding from him? It’ll be game over for good…
Another explosive, high-octane thrill-ride from New York Times bestselling author Lynn Raye Harris!
Sizzling sexual chemistry!
I have to admit to judging a book by it's cover so from the minute I saw the muscular hunk of testosterone sharing Lynn Raye Harris' name on the cover I knew I was in for a thrill ride with sexy-as-sin Dex Davidson who is a highly skilled member of the Hostile Operations Team. Though it has been five years since Double Dee's fiancé broke his heart and left him standing at the altar he can't turn away from Annabelle when she suddenly reappears in his life with no where else to turn. He is justifiably hesitant to let her back into his life but one of the reasons I love this series is because it's not hard to predict that this highly principled Alpha hero will be putty in Annabelle's hands and his boss will be putting the full resources of this black ops unit in harms way. While circumstances ratchet up the danger factor, these two long lost lovers rekindle their emotional connection with plenty of sizzling sexual chemistry that earned a 5 star rating from this dedicated fan. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my complimentary review are completely my own.
Lynn Raye Harris delivers yet again!
HOT Addiction is yet another thrilling and well written entry in the HOT series by Lynn Raye Harris. The usual formula of romance, thrill, danger, espionage, humor and characters we know and love combines to equal an intriguing and politically relevant story.
Dex and Annabelle are one time lovers separated by manipulation and deceit. Dex hates her yet cannot turn her away when she needs his help because her life has been threatened. The initial premise is a bit weak as it's hard to believe such an alpha personality would take her no-show at the church for their wedding so passively. But I understand that the device was necessary for later story elements. It just wasn't believable to me. Annabelle is also a bit annoying. Probably my least favorite HOT female protagonist to date. She's whiny and again, the initial premise just doesn't work without her being the most spineless person ever and that doesn't jive with what comes later. However I overcame the initial reservations to like and cheer for these two people to get their HEA.
Despite the reservations stated above about the start of the book I really enjoyed this one. I know, it seems an odd follow up to what I said above but it does eventually gel. I really, really liked the subtle (or not so subtle!) references to a number of today's political issues. I always like it when I can socially locate a book...it makes it that much more realistic for me. The lead up to Mendez' book at the end is nicely done and has me eagerly awaiting that book (pre-ordered already!!) The zinger in that one was pretty easy to see coming but that didn't detract from it...anticipation is just as good as surprise!
So once again Harris has a winner and I strongly encourage you to not only read this book but all the previous ones as well. While they can be read separately I say read them in order so you get to know and understand all the characters as Harris does a great job building characters even after their own books have concluded.
another good book i cant put down once i start reading the story about love and most of all mother's unconditional love to her baby, a friendship goes through thick and thin and forgiveness what else i could ask for a book, well good written book 5 stars and congratulations to ms. lynne harris
