But is she the ideal choice for him?
An early-morning surprise attack and the arrival of a beautiful, witty, and regrettably nice rival make Bee question her decision. Does she step aside, forgoing her forever to ensure her man’s survival, or does she risk his life and her heart on love?
I limp toward Dawg. “Here.” I hand him the phone. “Next time you tattle on me, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t share every little detail.”
“He asked, miss.” Dawg doesn’t appear at all contrite.
“A distracted marine is a dead marine.” I quote Mack, one of Hawke’s men. “Whether Hawke asks or not, you’re not to call him with trivial concerns while he’s on an assignment. Got it?”
The older man maintains my gaze. “Got it.” He doesn’t look away, his lips silently moving as though he’s debating with himself. I raise an eyebrow.
“He wants you to talk to Hawke, to tell him I’m ready to lead the high-profile assignments.” Ellen’s eyes glitter with excitement.
“That is Organization business,” Dawg barks. “He wouldn’t appreciate us discussing it.” She shrugs.
Hawke knows she can lead the high-profile assignments, but I don’t relay this because Dawg’s right. My military man won’t appreciate them discussing Organization business, not with me, an outsider. Plus I’m not certain he will ever delegate this responsibility. I won’t raise my new friend’s hopes.
“Do you really want to lead those assignments?” I gaze at her. How crazy is she? “They’re extremely dangerous.”
“They’re challenging, not extremely dangerous.” Ellen rolls her eyes. “The team is thorough. We reduce the risk of assignments to almost nothing.”
They reduce the risk of assignments to almost nothing. My lips flatten. There’s still a chance that Hawke could die, could leave me forever.
If Ellen was his girl, our relationship would end, but he might live.
First I have to say that I am totally in love with this series. I didn’t think it was going to work for me having to wait a month for each installment, but it does. It does because; I get to imagine what was going on while we are waiting, that is crazy!!
There is one gripe I have…. Bee is such a wimp. She cannot make up her mind and it drives me batty! One minute she is all over Hawke like he is her last meal and the next, she is trying to figure out how to get away because she thinks he cannot support her, her mom or her best friend. Damn girl, if a man like that wanted to give me everything he had, I’d be all over that. But then again she has Nicholas waiting in the wings for her to come running back. The consummate billionaire gentleman that wants Bee for his own selfish reasons that we will find out.
In this installment, Bee finally starts to feel like she belongs in Hawke’s world, his people are at ‘their’ house and she is hosting a lunch parts and loving life. For some reason, he puts a stop to that really quick. It makes her second guess her involvement with him and her choices to not do other things that pop up in her world. But as always, things turn out for the best man!! 😉
I am waiting on pins and needles here for #10!! To say I’m a little obsessed with this series is putting it mildly. I finish each book in about an hour and half; I devour them and then cry because they are done! UGH!
