{ arc } review || HOT PROTECTOR by Lynn Raye Harris

H.O.T. Publishing, LLC | January 19, 2016 | Military Romance
Hostile Operations Team, book 10


Sometimes the forbidden is impossible to resist… 

Special Ops soldier Chase “Fiddler” Daniels is just back from a dangerous mission overseas. He needs sleep and sex—and not necessarily in that order. When Sophie Nash arrives on his doorstep, he doesn’t recognize the stepsister he hasn’t seen in ten years. And when she spins a tale involving a Russian billionaire and secret files, he doesn’t believe her. Until someone firebombs his apartment with them inside… 

Now they’re on the run, and grown-up Sophie is more compelling than he ever thought possible. But she’s off-limits, and Chase won’t cross that boundary—or will he? 

Sophie Nash only wants life to return to normal. Get the files she mailed to Paris and find out what’s in them. Stop Grigori Androv from hurting anyone else. Live and let live. Except the stakes are high in this game of cat and mouse, and there’s no assurance she’s going to come out on top. Maybe that’s why she can’t quite resist Chase’s alpha magnetism. 

Or why she finds herself falling for her very hot, very lethal—very forbidden—protector…

The forbidden romance. More to the point, the step brother romance.

Oh yes, Lynn Raye Harris went there.

And oh my goodness, did she do a great job of it. For a subject matter that doesn't really pull me one way or another, she nailed it -- fully deserving the 5-stars.

I've loved every HOT book put out, some more than others, and this is definitely one of the 'more' books -- not quite Lucky and Kev, or Garrett and Grace, but another great couple.

When Sophie's mother married Chase's dad, Chase rarely came around. He wasn't close with his dad in the least bit -- and when he had his mother's maiden name and Tyler Nash adopted Sophie, giving him his name... somewhere deep in the recesses of Chase's soul, it hurt a little bit. He's been able to keep Sophie and the rest of the Nash's far, far away from his life -- until she shows up on his doorstep (because low and behold, daddy dearest has been keeping tabs on Chase's life). Sophie's in trouble and it's going to take Chase and HOT to help -- and along the way, Chase realizes just how much he wants Sophie in his life.

Absolutely loved this latest HOT book!
