Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books – The Home of the Romance Novel!
Welcome also to Steamy Saturdays!
This is the day of the week where I post a review for a book that is on the steamier side of romance. Last week and this week I’ve featured a two book series – both Harlequin Blaze and both by Karen Foley! I loved these books so much I want to pass them on to someone else who will love them also! Last week’s book was Coming Up for Air and this week I’m featuring No Going Back. Enjoy! If you are interested in getting both books, fill out the form at the end of the post.
No Going Back by Karen Foley
Release: July 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Blaze
Source: I purchased this book to read and review
Subject: Army Special Ops Major Chase Rawlins
Current Status: On tour in Afghanistan
Mission: Babysitting civilians
Obstacle: Keeping his mind on his duty…and his hands off a certain sexy civvy
Major Chase Rawlins is one of the toughest military SOBs around. His job? Take out terrorists. So why is he escorting publicist Kate Fitzgerald around the base in order to prep for a visiting pop star? It’s the last thing he wants to do. Even if Kate does make his blood run hotter than the Afghan desert….
Thanks to her starlet half sister, Kate is used to “challenging” situations. But when Major Sexypants informs her that he will handle all of her needs, Kate finds herself tempted to do her own reconnaissance…under Chase’s uniform!
One week. One chance. And once they start, there’s no going back!
No Going Back is the second book in a miniseries that Karen Foley is writing! Harlequin Blaze has been producing a Uniformly Hot Series for some time now. No Going Back and Coming up for Air are about a set of twins – Chase and Chance Rawlins are twins, both in the military and both serving in Afghanistan. Chance, a helicoptor pilot was the subject of Coming up for Air, and Chase is in the Special Forces and the subject of No Going Back.
Both of these books are incredibly hot, but romances about twins have always fascinated me. These two men are enough alike in looks to be mistaken by their live interests, yet the women that they are interested in are very different.
Chase is pulled from his mission hunting down a bad guy and assigned to watch over a VIP. This VIP is Kate Fitzgerald who has come over in advance of her famous sister’s arrival to make sure that everything is in place. Certainly out of her element on a military base, Kate shows that she can’t be intimidated, and Chase likes that in a woman. The sparks fly between them almost immediately. Chase goes into protective mode and makes sure that nothing happens to Kate during her time on the various bases.
This book, like Coming up for Air, has excellent characters that mesh well. The storyline moves along at a fast rate and keeps the reader engrossed for the few hours it takes to devour this book.
Certainly a great little read – enter to win a copy of both books!
