This was a vast improvement over the first book by this author, Rules In Blackmail It'sof a 3.5 rounded up to a 4 There are some issues from the previous book that remain here: awful heroine, and a hero who is practically superhuman.Glennon Chase is with military police and is trying to track down her missing partner, who was investigating a smuggling ring involving members of the army who were stealing weapons She seeks the assistance of Anthony Harris from Blackhawk Security to be her bodyguard, the man she left five years ago because he put his duty as a soldier over her She has a four year old son Do ya think it could be Anthony's kid?Of course it is, even though the book tries to treat it as some sort of plot twist when it's finally revealed.Like so many other books in this genre, Glennon never even really has to account for her actions! She kept Anthony's son from him FOR FOUR YEARS!!! How on earth is that justifiable? It's such a vile, selfish thing to do She says it's because she feared Anthony was losing a piece of himself each time he went on tour, or something like that, but Glennon.HE HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW HE'S A FATHER, for crying out loud It's not like Glennon thinks Anthony is a bad person, so what the hell was her motivation for denying a father his son?It just does my head in.At least she wasn't a blackmailing martyr like the heroine in the previous book, but it still made me dislike Glennon a great deal As for Anthony, he's serviceable as the hero, willing to do whatever it takes to keep Glennon safe His second chance with Glennon works minorly as far as romance goes, but I would have really liked to see a proper conversation between him and Glennon about the fact she selfishly kept his child from him She should have been madeaccountable for her actions The other issue with Anthony, like the hero in the previous book, is seemingly superhuman strength Anthony is shot in the thigh, stabbed in the ribs, and dealt a variety of other injuries but keeps on fighting a neverending parade of enemies A normal person would be dead!At one point, we get told that Anthony was trained to sleep with one eye open and I just groaned THIS IS NOT A THING!!! The only reason you would have an eye/eyes open while sleeping is if you had a medical condition And if you did sleep with one eye open, you wouldn't see anything, because your brain is in sleep mode And if you did sleep with one eye open, you'd be rendered mostly ineffective because your eye would be really dry and sore! I get taken out of a book easily when easily debunked nonsense that you can research in under a minute on the internet gets thrown into the mix.However, where this book strikes gold is in the pacing and action While the plot wasn't terribly complex, it was always on the move, with lots of exciting action bits that I could picture being in a movie Even though I found Glennon to be a very dubious heroine, I was still highly caught up in what was going on and really enjoyed myself.Hopefully Severn can work on making her heroines less odious, and her heroesrealistically human in future books, because this was otherwise an entertaining action thriller! This is the first book I have read by this author but it will not be my last Rules in Rescue is the second book in Severn’s Blackhawk Security series but can easily be enjoyed as a standalone Though I have not yet read the first book, I had no problem following along Each book shares characters from previous stories but contains a specific storyline surrounding one couple This book is fast paced and full of pulsepounding excitement that will have you engrossed from start to finish It is loaded with action, suspense, adventure and intrigue in spades and it all explodes from the first page The hero is the perfect rough and tough alpha male Ranger who will take on the world to keep those he cares for safe and the heroine can definitely stand on her own She is brave (to a fault), stubborn, resilient and will risk everything for those she loves They make an unstoppable, powerful team Aside from the great characters and strong storyline, there is plenty of action to keep you on your toes and guessing at every turn The second chance romance also balances out the story nicely Rules in Rescue definitely packs a punch and is worth a read I truly enjoyed the story and look forward tofrom this author.*I received an ARC of this book and am voluntarily leaving my honest review. An edgy, explosive story, filled with action, suspense, secrets, and betrayals The pulse of the story keeps pounding hard and fast as the volatile situations keep escalating, even speeding up as the two former lovers have to face their past, their mistakes, and the choices they made while vulnerable and trying to survive the combat they had faced, with each other and in the war they fought Edgy is a perfect word to describe the tale the battle to survive, the hunt for the criminals, the attempted rescue of Glennon's partner there are no guarantees, everyone is precarious and endangered, there are times I truly feared for the hero and heroine, and their survival Anthony Harris is a hero easy to like He oozes charm, good character, honor, and dignity He has a big heart, a sense of humor, and he is willing to die for those he loves He is loyal, passionate, protective, and loving The wars he battled in has made a lasting impact into his soul, yet there's still room for tender feelings and loving thoughts Glennon Chase is a survivor She is a heroine who can stand on her own and has done just that She loves fiercely, yet rather hide than face the storms if it comes to protecting what she holds dear She has secrets, she has made decisions and choices I had a hard time accepting, but she stands by her actions and her past, giving reasonable explanations to her way of resolving issues in the past The chemistry between Glennon and Anthony is palpable, their history makes it evenbelievable, and the churning emotions between them had my heart melting There is so much love still left in their hearts, minds, and souls, and after everything they have gone through, I have to salute them with their desire to make the best of the situation and finding redemption within each other's arms Combustible, intense suspense, flammable romance with lessons in forgiveness and loyalty, a story that takes your breath away and delivers on every aspect ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side I loved the first book in the Blackhawk Security series and it was one of my top twentyfive reads last year I knew the moment I finished book two that I already have a book for this year's list!
