Title: Hot Shot - A Hostile Operations Team Novel –
Author: Lynn Raye Harris
Review: HOT Shot is your typical alpha male military style romances suspense novel.
Gina Domenico, world famous pop stars, who found herself dating a very dangerous man who whisked her off to his private island but when everyone on the island is dropping like flies she runs into the jungle to get away. She gets lost running into Jack “Hawk” Hunter and lucky for her he is one of the good guys. They find themselves trapped in close quarters while waiting to be rescued. Finally they both fall for each other but figure they will never see each other again.
3 and 1\2 years later Gina trust only one man to find her son but once he finds out her secret will he ever care for her again?
Jack once loved but it was all taken away from him in the blink of an eye. He find that’s same connection he had with his dead wife with Gina but walks away until 3 1\2 years later she calls him for help to find her kidnapped son. His son!
Author Lynn Raye Harrie plays on a parents greatest fear- the kidnapping of their child which makes for some emotional moments but it is over shadowed with the second chance romance and the author falls on the traditional if it works don’t fix it formant with military romance stories. Girl meets boy, hot bodies mesh. Boy leaves girl, girl has baby, something happens to bring them together, fight, sexual tension, fight, sex, fall in love again the end.
The author created a very flawed character which made them be more human and less super heroes. Jack’s emotions are all over the place creating him to be very human and the reader will feel for Jack but they will also feel for Gina and you find yourself rooting for her and the normal life she seeks.
The villain and his minions are creepy and make your skin crawl from the second he opens his mouth until he finally meets his end. The books is intense, fast paced with lots of emotions which also bring in tons of language which I feel wasn’t always need along with sex senses.
This book is in a series but it is also a standalone and which I appreciated as I didn’t read any of the other books
This review is based on the ARC of HOT Shot, provided by netgalley.

Synopsis: Cool under pressure… Until now.
Hostile Operations Team sniper Jack “Hawk” Hunter is cool, methodical, and utterly lethal. Nothing rattles Jack’s calm. But that was before he learned he fathered a child three years ago—a child who has just been kidnapped.
Gina Domenico is a superstar, a pop sensation with a string of hit records. But deep inside, she’s still the lonely girl she’s always been. When Jack saved her from an arms dealer, they spent three unforgettable days together waiting for rescue—and Gina fell hard for the sexy soldier before he walked away forever.
But now she needs his help and she’ll do anything to get it. Though Jack can never forgive Gina for keeping his child from him, he’ll do everything in his power—and HOT’s—to bring their son home safely.
Nothing is what it seems, however, and their fates hang in the balance as someone else pulls the strings…and brings them ever closer to an explosive confrontation that could either save their son—or cost them everything.
