review || DELTA: REVENGE { blog tour } by Cristin Harber

Mill Creek Press | April 26, 2016 | Military Romance
Delta, book 2


A Tortured Hero with a Heart of Gold

Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she’s sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible.

Years later, Titan Group’s Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he’s a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs.

Meets Sweet and Sassy

Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She’s intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she’s been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore.

Javier is her older brother’s black ops teammate—an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there’s one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancĂ©, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man.

It's a Game Changer

Javier didn’t expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn’t have touched her, but his mind won’t stay away from her.

Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents’ lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She’s a staffer at an Embassy, and he’s there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies.

And then she’s taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.

{ review } .

Ever since his sister was taken by the PC, Javier has made it his life mission to take the cartel down. While Delta and Titan are made up of military men, it was Javier's fight, his raw desire to hurt those who have done wrong, and his tenacity for revenge that had Brock seeking him out on the streets. While most of the guys are military smart, Javier is street smart, and it's something that has served him well.

Finally, the team has Javier's revenge in it's grasps, but is it possible for something, or someone, to have Javier battling what to do next?

I absolutely enjoyed this story. Sophia is team member Collin's sister. The entire team was invited to her wedding to the good doc. The entire team watched as the wedding fell apart.

It was Javier who helped Sophia piece back together, all while it was Sophia who helped Javier find peace.

Six months later, though, and the very last place Javier expects to see Sophia is in Honduras, while the guys (less Collin, mind you) are on one of their most dangerous missions. What Sophia takes as anger and an innate ability to push their one night away and show that it was meaningless, is actually Javier showing his protective, possessive abilities where the honey-brown woman is concerned.

From there, the chemistry, the tension, the suspense... all of it is done is such true Cristin Harber fashion. If you've read and liked any of her works, you are going to enjoy Javier and Sophia's journey. We get to see the other guys, of course, and if you found any of the other men to have strong protective streaks, be prepared because this street fighter's streak is stronger.

I loved the Sophia wasn't a wilting flower. She wasn't the debutante she thought her parents wanted, but equally, she wasn't Collin. I would say she finds decent middle ground in this story -- especially with the surprises that are thrown her way throughout.

Definitely an enjoyable tale. The epilogue was insanely sweet, too, so always major props there.
