Book Description: Highly trained VC Warrior, Dr. Slade Buchanan’s, role between lifesaver and lifetaker has been a constant battle, but nothing prepared him for half-breed VC Warrior trainee, Jill Nichols. Slade realizes his struggles from the past were nothing compared to the difficulty of resisting the woman who could never belong to a man like him.
Being the only female VC Warrior recruit, Jill Nichols, has an uphill battle. Falling for the sexy doctor, Slade Buchanan, has not made the battle any easier, especially when he constantly reminds her and others there will never be anything between them. Working harder than any male recruit, obstacles are thrown in her path, and with each challenge, it becomes clear that the two things she wants most may never be.
Captivation: I was captivated by the story of Slade and Jill back in book 4, I couldn’t wait for this book, and once I read, I didn’t put down until it was done!
Sizzle: I liked the intimate scenes, though I would have liked to have seen more. These two characters are fascinating, and the picture painted of them and the scene provided make one wishing for more.
Romance: I really like Slade and Jill’s story. They struggle both personally and professionally and the build of all aspects of the story around them and their friends is well done, interesting, and exciting.
Enjoyment: I love this book. This is not only my favorite (so far) of this series, but it’s also one of my favorites in the genre in general.
Literacy: I did catch a few minor, common editing errors, nothing horribly unexpected or distracting.
Overall, The plot continues to thicken… in resolving one of the main plot topics and antagonists, it throws into play a whole new plot leading to a suspenseful waiting for the next book(s). This book is one of my true favorites for the paranormal romance genre. Though I think the intimacy scenes could be more and maybe a bit better, the romance, story, plot, and image presented are fantastic.
