Book Review Heated Pursuit

Heated Pursuit (Alpha Security #1)

Title: Heated Pursuit

Author: April Hunt

Stars: 3 1\2 out of 5

Review:

Heated Pursuit is more romance than suspense. I spent most of the time reading this book skipping the sex scenes that seem to fill the pages. The story is very basic with twist that readers will see coming before it happens.

The book starts off really fun and make readers excited for what is to come in the book. April Hunt falls into the sex because I don't know what else to do with my characters until the action scenes are needed. 


With that being said April Hunt ability to create characters who are true from beginning to end. Never once as a reader question what Penny or Rafe were going to do because she was true to the characters. Penny is the saving grace of the book. She is feisty, smart, but is female with all her insecurities she keeps hidden as she fights to find her missing best friend. Rafe is your typically written alpha male who loses it when anyone threatens the woman he loves. 

Me Tarzan You Jane Crap.

The author add humor in this area of the book making it stand out among the other Security/Mec/Alpha books. Where most stand on the same basic story April is able to bring humor at just the right time. Rafe has a heart and Penny can handle life's punches because of her fathers upbringing.

This book is 80% Sex and 20% story which I wish it was better balanced. After awhile I was pretty sure Rafe was a ranging hormonal teenager with a medical condition called the Endless Boner.

Synopsis:

TROPICAL HEAT

Penny Kline didn't come to Honduras on a pleasure trip. She's here to rescue her kidnapped niece, the only family she's got left. What she didn't plan on was walking into a covert ops mission---or being wrapped up in the hard-muscled arms of Rafe Ortega. The cool-as-ice operative's touch may get her all hot and bothered, but no man can have a hold on her heart until her niece is home where she belongs.

Even in the tropics, Alpha Security operative Rafe can take down the bad guys without breaking a sweat. Hostage extractions. Clandestine missions. Those are the things he's been trained to handle. Relationships? Not so much. But one look at this strong, sexy redhead and he's seized by a fierce urge to protect her at all costs. Now Penny and Rafe will have to up their game because they're about to go into a master criminal's lair without backup, and the danger---and passion---is about to explode .
