Handcuffed by her Hero is the second book in The WILD Boys of Special Forces series by Angel Payne. This book is part of a series and reading the prior book does help in understanding everything going on. Sergeant Zeke Hayes is a natural born Dominant who has never met a situation that he can’t get out of. That is until he meets Rayna. He rescues Rayna from a South Asian slave trafficker and as he fights to keep her safe from a man who will stop at nothing to get her back in his clutches. Rayna is the one woman that breaks who managed to get into his heart the way no one else has.
Rayna is a strong woman to come out of what she did whole. She went through hell and hell is trying desperately to take her back. Rayna seems to struggle to adjust to life after being rescued and killing her captor. I loved how Rayna evolved from the prior book where she seemed a bit scared and gentle to a brat with an attitude.
Zeke is a hot and sexy man who loves to be in control. Everything he does screams dominate. His choice of domination leans more to the darker side. I loved that the more Zeke spent with Rayna the more she got under his skin. Zeke is such a complex character. It seems as soon as you figure him out he changes. Zeke has his own issues from his childhood, and what he seen as a solider.
The chemistry between Zeke and Rayna is blistering hot. The sex scenes were scorching hot. Zeke and Rayna are perfect for each other once they get over there issues. I loved that no matter what happened around Zeke his priority is Rayna.
I found the story to be well written. The main and secondary characters were realistic. Overall, this was a magnificent book. I am hooked on this series. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
The W.I.L.D. Boys are at it again! Angel Payne's hot romance adventure series continues.
Between a rock and a hard place...
To Sergeant Zeke Hayes, the expression has always been a non-factor. There's never been a situation he can't blast, punch, or smart-ass his way out of, which makes him the perfect fit for his Special Forces battalion--and a natural-born Dominant who's made a lot of submissives happy from Mt. Rainier to Vancouver. That all changes when Rayna Chestain enters his world.
From the moment Z snatches Rayna from the lair of a South Asian slave trafficker, his inner grizzly roars to life. This is a huge damn problem, because Z isn't wired to be a one-woman man. Growing up an orphan on the streets of Seattle has taught him that beyond a few hours in a dungeon, trust means disappointment and love leads to agony. But here he is, in the remote wilderness escape he'd promised not to share with anyone, harboring Rayna from a fiend who now wants his pound of revenge flesh from her.
A hard place...
Sheltering Rayna? Z's never done anything more right in his life. But wanting her? Dreaming of her beneath him, surrendering to his passion and domination? It's the most forbidden fruit he can crave...and the only thing he can't stop thinking about.
A new beginning?
This is a dead-end canyon that no rifle, bomb or sweet talk will let Zeke escape from. The only way out is to confront the reality of what Rayna has done to him...the mountain she's moved in his intractable heart.
