A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

This kind of temptation is worth the risk...

Dawn Freeze had a huge crush on Hawk Rain for years, and the entire town knows it. It's understandable?the man is total hotness. That tall, lean body. Intense dark eyes. And always one foot out the door. Now he's on leave for exactly one week. And this time, he's made it crystal clear that he only wants one thing. Her.

Hawk's been fighting his attraction to Dawn for as long as he can remember. She's his best friend's little sister, and that means hands-off. Except now she's all grown up, and her sweet sexiness is exactly what he craves. But just as Hawk allows himself one mindblowingly intense night with Dawn, he learns that everyone he loves is in danger. Especially her.

And the only way to protect Dawn is to push her away...

Kathie's Review:

This is the 4th book in the Montana Maverick's Series. My review of #3, Rising Assets can be found here.

It was great seeing the characters from the first three books in this one. This is Hawk and Dawn's book...and I've been anxiously awaiting Hawk's HEA. Poor guy was pretty badly beaten in the last book, and it's about time he found some happiness. Of course, just about when he thinks he can grab that brass ring...the bad guy gets loose and he has to leave Dawn's warm, sweet arms to go after him. At least he thinks he needs to do so. Ah, men...they always want to do things on their own!

Dawn and his "brothers" school him on just how family can be counted on.

Dawn was a great. She has a backbone. She is feisty. She's been waiting on Hawk and it's time to grab what she wants. Good thing he wants it, too.

There is quite a bit of humor in this one. Each chapter starts with a line from the Lady Elks Secret Archives. Like this:

If a man can dance, he knows how to move in bed.

and this one:

Men like an angel in public, a mom in the kitchen, and a wildcat in bed.
Do NOT get those mixed up.

Yes, I laughed. The little old ladies really wanted to get Dawn and Hawk together. They worked hard at it, too.

I counted just a bit off for repetition in the narrative.

This was very enjoyable, just as I've come to expect from this author. I highly recommend it to readers who like cowboys, military types, Alpha males...and sweet romance.
