    action packed romantic suspense story

    This action packed romantic suspense story takes us to northern Pakistan and introduces us to West and Lexi. Lexi's father runs a medical clinic that she helps out with, taking care of any and all who use their services, especially mountain climbers from the nearby Karakoram range. When her father goes off to work at Mt.Everest, he leaves behind information that she's only to use in an extreme emergency. When she discovers that there are some serious weapons being brought into their region, she worries for the safety of her father's clinic and the local people. Using this top secret contact information, two men show up, West and Josiah, just in the nick of time to save her from some unsavory characters who have discovered her interest in the comings and goings at the nearby caves. Instantly drawn to West, she is struck by his ruthless, matter-of-fact demeanor but quickly surmises that there is more to him than meets the eye. However the clock is ticking for Lexi as the plot she's inadvertently uncovered reaches into the upper echelons of the Pakistan military. Only West can save her now - if his own nemesis doesn't get to him first. Though this is the second in the Bad Boys Undercover series, it's not necessary to have read the first story to get a handle on the key characters involved. In fact, if I have one complaint about this story, it's that there were quite a lot of secondary characters (good guys, bad guys, and ones in between). On the one hand you've got the West and Lexi romantic suspense subplot. But there is also a good deal of time spent with the other members of the Alliance, the group that West belongs to. Thankfully, by mid-point in the story the key characters are all converging on one place, but it did make for a lot of busyness at times. Despite this, I really enjoyed the characters of West and Lexi. West thinks of himself as a machine, doing what must be done in order to keep his teammates (or anyone under his protection) safe. Though he is initially annoyed to discover that Lexi has triggered the code that has sent him on this current mission (a code meant only to be used by her father), he immediately assumes protection of her. What he doesn't expect is the feisty, confounding woman that Lexi is - one who questions everything he does (at least at first) and who doesn't listen to him if she thinks she knows better (which is most of the time). I loved the way they played off each other, their equal frustration in discovering they are two strong minded individuals, and the eventual acknowledgement of the sexual attraction between them. In dangerous and adrenaline filled situations it's only natural for them to find an outlet for the strong emotions they are feeling - a sexy, steamy outlet. But West is determined to keep his heart out of it - he must if he's going to fulfill his duty, and in order to be a killing machine worry or concern for Lexi will only distract him. Lexi sees beyond the facade that West puts up to the real man underneath, one that cares for others, that does the job he must but still acknowledges the toll that killing takes on him. However she also knows it will be up to West to come to terms with his feelings for her and she's smart enough to know that pushing him to acknowledge those feelings when he isn't ready won't work if they are meant to be together for the long haul. Lexi and West get into some pretty intense situations and the action doesn't let up from the time they meet to their eventual happy ending. While much of the story is gritty and action packed, there are some lighthearted moments, some fun camaraderie between the Alliance team members and a sexy romance between two likable and complex characters. The setting of the story was unique and I thought it was well researched and interesting. I'm definitely planning to read more of this series. 3.5 stars.

    Lots of Action and Suspense

    I absolutely enjoyed Playing Dirty and was waiting impatiently for Falling Hard, which does not disappoint at all. The action begins right from the first page and does.not. stop. Weston Brown is supposed to be taking some downtime after a grueling assignment , but he does not know what to do with himself when he's got some free time and guess what? His ass volunteered for an assignment that lands him in the last place he wants to be: Pakistan. West had previously been in Pakistan on a covert assignment, one that cost him his entire team and put him through a hell that would have destroyed a lesser man. The thing is, the assignment was supposed to be easy: get in, debrief an asset and get him on a plane to the US. Problem is, the asset is a 'she' that they were not prepared for and she is not willing to go quietly. Lexi Turner stumbled upon an illegal weapons ring while working in her dad's clinic in the mountains of Pakistan and pretending to be him, contacts the intelligence agencies in the US, a move that sets in motion a deadly game with the masterminds, one of whom is already in the custody of Alliance. Falling Hard is a non-stop roller-coaster ride that plays out over dangerous terrain, with so many different players, all of them looking out for their own interests and it's hard to determine who the good and the bad guys really are. West has had some experiences in his past that really should have leveled him, but instead he became very detached in the way he carries out his job. In fact, he has gained notoriety as the team's go-to guy for when the enemies need to be taken out, a machine that is not affected by having to rid the world of the bad guys. In reality, West has trained himself to shut down his emotions and operate like a robot to avoid the fallout from being emotionally overwhelmed and somehow Lexi is able to see through that facade to the man beneath and accept him for who and what he is. Lexi is the most fearless and strong heroine I have read about in a long time, and that's saying something. Right from the beginning, she made the Alliance team aware that she would not stand for being sheltered and would pull her weight. The things that West has to do to keep them safe do not faze her and even when his fear of emotional entanglements threaten what they have, she still willingly puts herself out there and risks rejection over and over again. I have been impressed with Ms. Dimon's previous writings but with this series, she has cemented my love for her work and is an auto-buy for me. I must say that Falling Hard is more of suspense than romance and only die hard fans of intrigue and danger would completely appreciate it. So, if you are one that loves the adrenaline rush that comes with the action that these covert operators find themselves in the middle of, then hang on for a thrill ride!

    Favorite of the series so far!

    Another one bites the dust! The Alliance boys are at it again - chasing down bad guys, blowing things up and falling in love unexpectedly. Lexi and West are perfect for each other. She helps him find the humanity he thought he'd lost long ago, and he helps her see the strong woman she is. Action filled with a side of sexy romance, I was entertained from beginning to end. I think this might be my favorite from the series so far. Can't wait to see what's in store for Josiah in the next book. ARC via Edelweiss
