MARRIAGE UNDER FIRE

MARRIAGE UNDER FIRE                    JACKI DELECKI

Marine veteran Maddy Jeffers never expected her most demanding and daunting mission would come off the battlefield. Ordered to infiltrate a Seattle terrorist cell, Maddy must pose as a loving wife to Major Hunter Hines. The undercover role begins to feel all too real when Maddy falls hard for the rugged, macho Marine.

Duty and discipline are Hunter Hines’s credo, guiding every decision and every action. But constant proximity with the fierce and enticing Maddy is veering his mission wildly off course. Although their role as man and wife is only pretend, there is nothing false about his out-of-control desire for his partner.

When Maddy’s life is threatened by an ISIS cell, protecting her becomes the only mission that matters, and Hunter is willing to break all the rules to save her. As the danger heats up around these two veteran heroes, Maddy and Hunter must walk a narrow path between passion and survival.
 

MY REVIEW:
     For such a short story it carries a large impact.  There are actually two stories in one with the two main characters in both.  The first part “Marriage Under Fire” is with undercover agents from the USMC Maddy Jeffers and Hunter Hines going under as husband and wife.
     This makes them both a bit uncomfortable since they know each other through Hunter’s sister Angie who is Maddy’s best friend.  Not to mention Hunter outranks her so she has to act a certain way.  It’s more like a sexual tension not to mention Angie and she like to tease him.  He is a man with mommy issues so it makes it easier.
     You see his mom took off on him and his Marine dad when he was ten years old for another Marine.  So he had major trust, loyalty, and faith issues.  So, when his dad married Angie’s mom and had her there was confusion for sure.  For his dad had always bashed his mom and all women.  Angie’s mom was older and settled in her was so it could have been a factor that he felt that she wouldn’t be out looking for men.
     Maddy had her own trust issues she was a foster child raised in the system.  She lost her parents at a young age and bounced around a lot.  She joined the Marines to have a sense of belonging, family, and she knew she would never be left behind.
     Once she met Angie she was the sister she never had a real connection.  Then when Angie, after a long separation, and Hunter came looking for her and found her along with Maddy, a twofer.  He read up on Maddy and was totally impressed at her character.  Especially, from the background she came from.  She is tiny but mighty in dedication to be a good Marine like he and his sister.
     Can these two work together with all sexual tension masked as anger that bounces off of them?  Or will it get in the way and cause them to lose focus putting the operation in jeopardy?  I will not tell about the second part for it will take away from part one.  Which is really funny.  But combined I give the book overall a 5 star.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at:
