Action packed read
Talon owns a surf shop he's a man who loves the ocean and ex marine but still gets plenty action,trouble seems to knock on his door he has a reputation for coming to the rescue and a playboy rep. Since the death of his wife he's a one night wonder with the ladies until a blue eyed blonde comes knocking.
Nicole seeks Talon out after a beating from her ex and this alpha is the guy to rescue her.
Being book 1 I didn't expect it to have reference to other books, I didn't have a clue what the references were at some points, talking about other characters and dramas that previously happened which I presumed happened in previous books the unchecked series.
Having not read the unchecked series the plot lost me at times there was enough in this book alone without talking about what previously gone down with other characters but I also get that sometimes when your reading a series it's nice seeing characters you have previously read about make an appearance so you know how there doing but don't then call it book 1.
Talon is all alpha, demanding, straight talking, theres nothing sweet about him, he's a man who goes after what he wants. I liked his character and his alphaness.
Nicole is a meek character not much personality and not much of a talker , being told in Talon's pov may explain why I couldn't Bond or feel for her character or draw much from her really.
A descriptive plot, well written, lots of action, kidnapping, shootings MC and Cartel connecions, other ex service men in the mix, there's a lot all packed into this read.
With all the action there wasn't many romantic moments but I did like this quote:
"I'm done paddlin out because I found my magic. You're my perfect wave"
If you love an action packed read with so much going on it will get your blood pumping, an alpha male and a bit of hot bedroom action, you will love this.
