Talk about polar opposites. Emily lives in a fantasy world of models and exotic locations. Once she sees Hawks picture, she builds a fantasy romance around the man she's never met. Hawk sees the world as it really is, warts and all. He's a love `em and leave `em type by necessity. How is he to build a relationship when he's constantly being sent into dangerous situations all over the world?
These two collided, both with preconceived notions of the other. Emily is ready for love, but is disappointed that her chosen knight isn't reading the same script. Hawk can't get Emily out of his mind. What can that mean?
There was a lot of action in this book, and Cat Johnson did a great job building pictures in my head of the locations and people involved in the story. Will love defy all the odds for this couple that are worlds apart? This was definitely an intriguing read, and piqued my interest in the previous books about the Zeta Force.
"Out of every 100 men, 10 shouldn't even be there, 80 are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle.
