    Very enjoyable read

    I really enjoyed reading this one. I thought the storyline was unique and fresh and had me glued to the pages to find out what happened next! It's wonderfully written and I loved Alyssa and Hunter (although I did chuckle about a sniper named Hunter - just my sad sense of humor I guess. This has just the right amount of sizzling hot romance, angst, and mystery to keep you completely entertained. I would highly recommend this one for everyone! Alyssa Brooks can't believe what she's hearing. Her step father and fiancee having a discussion about payment since Nate (the fiancee) has come through on his end of the bargain. When she confronts Nate about what she heard, she quickly realizes he is not the man she thought he was. Fearing for her life and the lives of the people she loves, she runs to the one man she knows she can trust and who can help her, Hunter Reece. Her life will quickly take unexpected turns as things get interesting - Fast!! Loved it!

    I enjoyed it!

    The blurb for this book had everything I love in books - a Marine, an ex-fiancé with an ax to grind and the best friend of a sibling as a love interest and caught my eye. Alyssa Brooks is weeks away from getting married when she stumbles on her stepfather and her fiancé discussing their future plans and the payments her stepfather has been making to her fiancé to marry her. When she confronts her fiancé and breaks the engagement, he resorts to blackmail and threats to coerce her to go through with the marriage. In fear for her life and that of the son she gave up for adoption, she retains the services of a security agency to provide protection and quite fortuitously, is assigned Hunter Reece as her bodyguard. Hunter is the elder brother of her childhood best friend and is quick to step up to ensure her well-being, whisking her away to safety. Hunt was Alyssa's first crush and now that they are in hiding together, those feelings grow into something more, but the two of them are not the kids they were back then. Hunter is former Marine sniper who came back home with lots of issues and does not consider himself relationship material, having tried it once unsuccessfully. Alyssa has faced her own issues - her mother's death and the resulting fallout including her pregnancy and giving her baby up for adoption and she is willing to take the little that Hunt can give her rather than have nothing at all. The time in hiding was great for them because apart from the attraction that flared up between them, Alyssa and Hunt find themselves opening to each other completely, sharing secrets that they have held closely for a long time and I loved all of it, including the healing that sharing brought them. When it comes to relationships, both of them had been dealt the short end of the stick, the only difference being that while Hunt thought he wasn't relationship material because of what he had done in the Marines, Alyssa thought she was unworthy because, in addition to the loss of her parents, everyone else either left her or used her. I enjoyed EXPOSING THE HEIRESS particularly because of the friendship that Alyssa and Hunt built on what they had from their childhood and the ease and openness of their interactions. I also enjoyed seeing Alyssa take charge of her life and go for what she wanted- her career, Hunt - instead of allowing herself be manipulated into doing what she was not comfortable with. The suspense was very well done. Even though the villain was known from the beginning, his attacks on Alyssa, his well-covered tracks and the wait for him to show his hand was enough to keep me on the edge. Now, I have a few issues, especially the speed at which they moved their relationship along, but these do not affect my overall enjoyment of the story and knowing that I've had the first two books in the series in my TBR? I'm definitely moving them to the top of the pile. Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Exposing the Heiress

    The only way to keep Alyssa Brooks safe is to become the one thing former Mairne sniper Hunter Reece knows she could never love…a killer in this thrilling romantic suspense. Humiliated and betrayed, heiress Alyssa Brooks turn to the only man she knows can trust and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the story of a love that heals the most wounded of hearts. The attraction between Alyssa and Hunter is hot enough to make anyone sit up and take notice but both of them have emotional scars that need to be healed and these strong compelling characters capture the heart while drawing readers in and the fast paced, smooth flowing plot captivates readers with lots of suspense, excitement and romance. As if realizing the life you thought you had was a sham isn’t enough to have it turn around and try to completely destroy you would be an emotional challenge that few could stand against but Alyssa and Hunter are up for that challenge which has expectation building lots of tension and excitement throughout the story as the danger to Alyssa escalates. The well written scenes and detail capture the imagination while the emotional turbulence and intriguing events guarantee the readers is completely absorbed in the story from beginning to end. This story has lots of emotional elements but at the same time has a feel good story feel to it because of the vibrant intensity of the characters as they overcome adversity. This story can be read as a standalone in the Once a Marine series but I have to say that I the characters has certainly caught my attention and I will be going back and reading the previous books while I await the next one.

    Was not sure about Exposing the Heiress. Ms. Apodaca is an author I had not had the pleasure of reading before. I was wary because I am not really a mystery reader. But I was proven wrong. There were so many angles and curve balls in this story that I forgot everything else for the day and sat down to read the book all the way through. Exposing the Heiress turned out to be a sexy thrill. I enjoyed it . Thank you Entangled and NetGalley for the ARC. Thank you Jennifer Apodaca for this wonderful story. Received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
