It starts with a single kiss… it’ll end with complete surrender. 

Georgeanne Hayes is his best friend’s little sister. Off limits. Too perfect for the likes of Black Ops soldier Sam McKnight—no matter how badly he wants to corrupt her. 

Georgie has wanted Sam for as long as she can remember. But all he’s ever done is push her away. 

Now that someone wants her dead, he’ll fight to save her—and he won’t give in to the need that haunts his every waking moment. 

His life far is too dangerous. Too unpredictable. 

She plans to convince him he’s wrong. That she’s strong enough. She’ll fight for him, and she’ll win. 

She has to… because her very survival might depend on it. 

**This is an updated story! If you read and loved the old HOT MESS, you don't have to buy this one. If you were left wanting a little bit more -- more suspense, more action, more emotion -- then this one might be for you. This book is updated with over 10k words of new material! Because of that, it's being published as an expanded edition rather than the same book.**

Liza’s Review:

I read both the original release and the extended version of this story and I have to say my original review still rings very true. I do feel like the suspense elements were turned up a bit more in the extended version, but the romance for me stayed the main focus and I adored every single moment of reconnecting with Georgie and Sam. 

I really loved both Georgie and Sam in this book. Sam has been fighting his attraction to his best friend's little sister since they were teens. It was totally worth the wait for them both when he finally gave in to their mutual attraction. Hot and sexy describes them as a couple. The fact they were on the run and Sam was protecting Georgie only made it hotter.

While still not as suspenseful as the first book in the series, I enjoyed the romance between Georgie and Sam being the focus of this story. There was more mystery and suspense in the extended version of the story, A very good addition to this series and a great fast read for anyone looking for a sexy romance. In fact re-reading Georgie and Sam’s story really only made me want to go back and reread the entire series of stories in the Hostile Operations Team series.

Rating: 5 Stars (A)
