Theme Day: Ultimate Betrayal

I am repeating one of the themes I have used before after watching SMASH last night, I am still thinking it this morning.  Focusing the ultimate betrayal, the ones that cut so deep you are not sure you will ever recover, but a strong willed determined hero/heroine will at all costs. It may also be a threat that has you running on pure adrenaline until you can figure a way out of the mess.

Taking Chase (Chase Brothers, #2)If Angels Burn (Darkyn, #1)Acheron (Dark-Hunter, #15)

Wild Card (Elite Ops, #1)Wild Card by Lora Leigh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When Navy SEAL Nathan Malone left for his latest mission, he did not realize it would be the last time he saw his wife. Brutally tortured and left with only the shell of the man everyone knew, Nathan has kept away fearing his wife, Sabella, would never be able to accept the person he has become. When he is sent back to the place he left on a new mission as Noah Blake, he is not sure what to make of the hot blooded woman with a unyielding temper his wife has become.

Six years later Sabella is struggling to keep the shop her husband had built afloat, when a biker comes to town and her brother-in-law promises him a job. Something is off with Noah Blake, Sabella has not once felt passion for anyone since her husband, not to mention that he comes into her shop barking orders as if he owns it, she wants him gone. She has one hell of a fight on her hands as Noah plans to capture her heart and soul with or without a fight.

Wild Card=Wild Ride. I loved this book, just loved it. I cried, laughed, stressed myself out trying to figure out what was happening. Gritty, sexy, and a whole lot of fun.

  1. Great writers can make you love a character, then make you hate them for their betrayal, and later force you to forgive them. I am always amazed to find my emotions manipulated with such skill.

    Have you read any of the Allie's War series by JC Andrijeski? She rips my heart out, and then rebuilds it again. Stunning.
