My Rating: 4 Stars
Length: 264 Pages
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select, Contemporary Romance



Ex-special forces ranger Dylan McCourt is a stone cold killer who cares only about his military brothers and doing what’s right. He’s used to giving orders and has zero patience for bullshit. Most people tremble when they look him in the eye, but not his infuriatingly sexy new rescue mission, Jessie Lyon. She just juts her chin and says she’s not leaving without clearing her father’s name, to hell with his rules. And was that a one finger salute he sees in her eyes or his imagination? Either way, he knows this is one job his training might not have prepared him for.

For fans of Maya Banks’ KGI series, prepare to meet the men of the Delta Force Brotherhood, a sexy new contemporary series where kicking ass and living hard is just how they roll.



This was the first book I read by this author but I have recently discover a renewed interest for the romantic suspense genre.  When I was able to get an advance copy to review my interest was peeked.

This story follows Dylan as he and his crew work to help free Jessie from the local mob boss.  After a daring rescue from a warehouse, they still have to work to clear her name & retrieve the proof needed to take down the mob family.  They end up having some romance but it isn’t in the driving seat of the book, just gives the book a break from the suspense and drama 🙂

This book is labelled as book #1 of the Delta Force Brotherhood series, and I must say I am excited about the next book just based on how the author wrote this book.  Jessie’s character was a strong and fiercely independent woman who was willing to do whatever it takes to avenge her father’s death.  She isn’t one to lean on anyone if she can get the job done together.  Dylan’s character is a loyal man who will always do what’s right (even if it is just outside the law).  These two together are a force to be reckoned with and the way the author writes their interactions was so believable and realistic.  This was a great read – it had suspense, it had drama, it had romance, and it even had some light hearted humor in it.  It is a fairly quick read & overall I give it 4 stars.
