Surrendering To Her Sergeant is the third book in The WILD Boys of Special Forces by Angel Payne. This book is best read as part of the series and not as a standalone novel.
Ethan Archer just becomes a sergeant when he and the guys on his team make a trip to LA to unwind and celebrate. He met Ava Chestain last winter who is now living in LA working for actress Bella Lanza. Bella has her own history with Ethan making everything more complicated. Now his vacation is cut short as they try to unravel a terrorist plot.
The beginning of the story leaves you wanting to know more. By the end of the first chapter, I interested in finishing the book. The author did a wonderful job of drawing the reader in to her world. She did a great job of making it very realistic filled with layers and realistic complications. The pace of the story was a steady face pace all the way through. The main characters and the secondary characters were stimulating and authentic. What I liked best was that both Ethan and Ava each had faults that they each had to deal with making them realistic.
The point of view alternated between Ava and Ethan, giving the reader a glimpse inside both characters. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost or repeat story lines. The main conflict of the book is the relationship between Ava and Ethan and the terrorist plot. I liked how the characters did not always act as expected but their actions always fit the story in a believable way. The level of conflict was perfect, anymore and it would have detracted from the storyline. The dialogue between the characters was honest and unique. The characters voice matched not only the setting but fit their overall personality. This book takes the reader on a wonderful journey filled with twist and turns leaving you wanting to know more. I hope we get to see these characters again in the next book in the series.
IT’S HERE! Book Three in Angel Payne’s hot, sexy series is the story of Ethan Archer and Ava Chestain, set against the glamorous world of Hollywood’s jet set…
Corporal Ethan Archer has just earned his sergeant's stripes, and the guys on his Special Forces team decide that a trip to the fun and sun of LA is a perfect way to celebrate. Ethan has other motives for agreeing to the vacation. He can't forget a magical hour in a North Cascades forest last winter, shared with an indigo-eyed goddess named Ava Chestain, who now calls LA her home.
Ava is a stylist for Bella Lanza, star of the hit nighttime drama “Dress Blues.” When Ethan and his buddies finagle a visit to the set, his reunion with Ava melts the months away—but their time is cut short by Bella, who’s determined to rekindle her own naughty past with Ethan. His efforts to push Bella off are thwarted when the unit is called to secretly cut their vacation short in the name of assisting the CIA on a terrorist plot to destroy the West Coast. Part of the plan? Someone has to get closer to Bella, and Ethan's the logical choice.
Though Ethan risks his career by telling Ava about the plot, her trust is an impossible gift to earn. Her passion is a different story. As his willing submissive, Ava gives him the fire his body craves and the surrender his soul needs. She's a dream come true, until the cuffs come off and the sun comes up.
When a terrifying turn of events escalates the terrorists’ plan into reality, Ethan must make decisions that will either kill or save them all. Can Ava trust him enough to stand by him with everything she is…including what could be her last breath?
