As the first female operative at Alpha Security, Charlotte "Charlie" Sparks has her work cut out for her. Sure, she can wrestle a man to the ground and hit a target at 200 yards with the best of them. But sometimes, being surrounded by all that testosterone can drive a woman to distraction—especially when that distraction is six-and-a-half feet of cocky, confident, Alpha-trained muscle.

Ex-SEAL commander Vince Franklin has been on some of the most dangerous missions in the world. But pretending to be Charlie's fiancé on their latest assignment in Miami is his toughest challenge yet. Vince and Charlie are like oil and water; they just don't mix. And when their fake romance generates some all-too-real heat, Vince learns that Charlie is more than just arm candy. She's the real deal—and she's ready for some serious action.

I like the premise of this book - Charlie is a woman in a man's man world. It was refreshing to see a strong, badass woman kicking a$$ and taking names.

Add in uber-alpha Vince and things will start to heat up. They have been circling each other for a while now and I just needed them to get their act together. He is also ultra-protective of Charlie, and at times I could understand her frustration, but boy, what I wouldn't give for a man who treats me like he treats her.

Charlie, now her I had some trouble with. She frustrated me no end at times. Don't get me wrong, I love her badassness and fierceness, but then some of the things she said and did just gave me the irrits and I found myself rolling my eyes at her.

But this could just be me.

Now, I am not going to lie, I did nearly give up on this book. I am not sure what it was about it, but I had to keep forcing myself to pick it up and read it, and it took me 4 days to read when I read a book this length every night. However once it got to about 65% I found myself fully involved and read the rest in one sitting and was glad I pushed through.

The drama and suspense had me guessing right until the end.

I have not read the first 2 books in this series, however this did not affect my reading of Hard Justice.

I will read this author again in the future.

April blames her incurable chocolate addiction on growing up in rural Pennsylvania, way too close to America's chocolate capital, Hershey. She now lives in Virginia with her college sweetheart husband, two young children, and a cat who thinks she's a human-dog hybrid. On those rare occasions she's not donning the cape of her children's personal chauffer, April's either planning, plotting, or writing about her next alpha hero and the woman he never knew he needed, but now can't live without.
