Coming to Her Rescue

COMING TO HER RESCUE                   KATIE KNIGHT

When Navy SEAL Jake Hendrix attends a charity bachelor/bachelorette auction as a favor for a friend, he’s stunned to see his squad mate’s gorgeous sister, Hanna Masterson, walk across the stage. She’s grown even more stunning in the years since he’d met (and very nearly made out with) her at the end of basic training. When Jake overhears other bidders talking about her, his alpha protector instinct kicks in and he decides to bid on her himself. He thinks he’s saving her. What he didn’t expect was how upset she’d be at him. 

Hanna has developed a checklist of qualities she wants in a man. Someone reliable, dependable, and family-oriented who can provide for her and their children. She doesn’t need the likes of Jake Hendrix—smoking hot as he is—getting in the way of her manhunt. She’d been hoping the auction might pair her with a potential long-term match, but alas she just got her brother’s hot squadmate who has “one night only” written all over him. 

But the date actually goes well—really well. Best sex of her life well. But the following day, Jake immediately pulls back, just as she expected. Romance only gets in the way of doing his job: protection has no room for passion. Resigned to their night together being nothing more than a blip in the road, Hanna’s unsettled when a pregnancy test turns that blip into a major speedbump. 

Before she can tell Jake she’s pregnant, something far more unexpected lands on her plate. One of her high-profile clients has been murdered, and because he’s shared certain information with Hanna, the killers will stop at nothing to silence her. 

Despite his promises to stay uninvolved, Jake can’t help but protect Hanna, baby bump and all, insisting they go on the run as they dig deeper into the dangerous situation they’ve found themselves in. But as the threat closes in on their secluded safe house, their biggest problem might just be falling in love and losing it all… 

This novel contains sexual content, violence, profanity, and scenes with referenced substance abuse

PAT'S REVIEW

The story begins with Jake a Navy Seal going to a charity auction for a friend. While there he sees a woman he has not seen in ages and she happens to be up on the stage being one of the females auctioned for a date. While overhearing a group of young guys talking about her in a way in did not like he ends up bidding and winning. Hanna figures the best way to change the way her dating life has been going is to kick start it by having a guy bid on her and go on a romantic date. Instead, when she walks down the stairs she finds that the person that won is Jake one of her brothers Seal brothers. Also, someone, she has known for years and had a crush on. Now left with a guy that wants nothing to do with her or any type of a future. They end up buying some wine and end up looking out at the stars spending the night together, in more ways than one. The next day when he later decides that he wants to spend more time with her, he finds out that she is going to China for a conference. Now mind you he is still on vacation and can go with her but does not. Yet when she returns and people are after her and she tells him about being pregnant. He wants to protect her and yet he wants someone else to do it also. She, on the other hand, remembers what he says about he can’t have a family because he is a Seal so they can’t be together. Yet after saying that and leaving her with someone else he goes back to her but says we can’t be together. Confused much? What guy with their woman that is pregnant is not going to want to protect her? Especially a Seal. To me, Jake was the one that was playing head games with her coming from a male side of things. Maybe I come from a different generation? Was just expecting a little more. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 2 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
