Review: Hot Pursuit (Hostile Operation Team #1) by Lynn Raye Harris

Title: Hot Pursuit
By: Lynn Raye Harris
Series: Hostile Operation Team #1
My Copy: Ebook from Netgalley
Book Whisperer's Rating: 

The last man she ever wanted to see…
Might be the only one who can save her…
Things are about to get HOT in the bayou!

Evie Baker’s luck just ran out. Thanks to an ex-partner with organized crime ties, she’s lost her restaurant, her money, and nearly all her self-respect. Forced to return to her hometown and work as a shampoo girl in her mother’s salon, she doesn’t think her luck can get any worse.

But then someone starts shooting at her, her sullen baby sister is suddenly missing, and the high school heartthrob who stole her heart—and her virginity—is the only man big enough and bad enough to help.

Captain Matt “Richie Rich” Girard can’t afford to get involved. He’s already on the verge of a court-martial after a Top Secret op gone wrong, and he’s been ordered to stay out of trouble while he’s home for his sister’s wedding.

But when Evie’s ex-partner turns up dead, staying out of trouble is the last thing on Matt’s mind. He failed Evie once before; he can’t fail her again. If he’s going to protect her from a killer, and find her sister before time runs out, he’ll have to risk his entire future—and both their lives—to do it.

Hot Pursuit was a good thriller-romance.  This was the first book I have read from Lynn Raye Harris and I was pleasantly surprised by what she brought to the table.  Normally, I feel with books like these, you have the hero take off and leave the girl and then comes back to save the day but Harris put a little spin on it.  Before Matt took off, he humiliated Evie after their night together and broke her heart when she was only 16 years old.  She grew up and because of her ex-partner in her business, she finds herself back in her hometown, along with Matt who is there for his sister’s wedding. 

However, Evie’s ex-partner comes into town and brings some trouble with him and includes her into the mix.  Matt won’t let her out of his sight until he solves what is going on and how to make sure that Evie stays safe. 

The only thing that I will say is that Evie states that she was heart broken after Matt left her (and she should be) however, she let him back into her heart extremely quick.  I would have at least made him beg for a few months. *smiles*

I do hope that there are more books in these series. Perhaps Matt’s wonderful military buddies.
