Riordan “Rory” Malone is a force to be reckoned with. A member of the Brute Force Protection Agency and an operative working with the Elite Ops, Rory is the fiercest of warriors and protectors. Honed from the strong Irish stock of their grandfather and sharpened to a razor’s edge, Malone men live for one single purpose: to protect the women who own them, body and soul. From the moment he saw Amara Resnova, he knew she could be that woman.
But Amara, daughter of an alleged notorious crime lord, is a force in her own right. When she betrays her father, she’s finds herself in the arms of a man who is dangerous for her body and soul.
Can Rory keep Amara safe while protecting his own heart? Can Amara trust Rory not to break hers even as the danger mounts, threatening to take them and their passion to a breaking point? (less)
Collision Point by Lora Leigh (Brute Force, #1)
He died once trying to save her and now she doesn’t remember why he was gone from her life, why he “deserted” her. She doesn’t remember he was more than a bodyguard, they were lovers and the chemistry, steam and passion were explosive.
Now Riordan will risk his life again to keep Amara safe from the latest threats, but he also must make her remember what they had. He has gotten her body back, but he needs more…
Lora Leigh’s COLLISION POINT is filled with action, a plethora of turmoil, danger from every corner and deep secrets that are dangerous and deadly.
Razor taut tension brings life to this suspenseful and erotic tale of two lovers separated by events out of their control. I found myself wanting more information, more detail and more action that was merely a promise of its potential for edge-of-your-seat reading.
Ms. Leigh knows passion, erotic heat and attraction, but it wasn’t enough to carry this read to a five star rating. Rugged men with the potential to scorch each page with their power were rather faded while the focus became the physical needs of Riordan and Amara. The series name is Brute Force, I guess I was expecting that force to be more prominent. I just wasn’t convinced a woman could be sexed into remembering the worst nightmare of her life.
I received a complimentary ARC edition from St. Martin's Press!
