Major Blake Ramsey had gotten himself involved with the wrong woman. It not only nearly destroyed his Marine career, but his life was on the line because the Russians wanted to use him to get their operative freed. His boss sent him to a Hollywood movie set as a technical adviser so he could lay low until the CIA got things sorted out.
Actress Olivia Harper has problems. She is being groomed to be a femme fatale action star, but she has no idea how idea to be sexy. But from the moment she and Blake Ramsey lay eyes on one another, there is a sizzle that can’t be doused and before she can stop herself, she asks him to help her. But one chaotic night and a bad move on her part puts Blake in the spotlight.
I really wanted to like this story. The premise from the blurb sounded exciting. The Marine officer hero hiding out on a movie set as a technical adviser because he was being hunted by Russian spies. The problem was that the plot ended up being very thin. There was no edge of your seat danger unless you counted the heroine’s co-star in the movie who was a real douche. Olivia is a well-developed character and shows growth, Blake unfortunately does not grow much.
If you’re looking for edge of your seat suspense, this book isn’t for you. But if you like a lot of hot sex scenes, this burns up the page.
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
