THE MASTER OF EVERYTHING HAS FOUND HIS MATCH
Jared Westin knows his reputation and likes it. He gets the job done. No emotion. No baggage. That’s why his elite ops company, The Titan Group, is better than the best. They complete projects classified as mission impossible. And then, in walks a woman as tough as she is sexy. His counterpart in every way, should he choose to admit it.
SHE’S NOT WILLING TO LET HER HEART FALL
Ousted undercover ATF agent Lily Chase only answers to “Sugar.” Jared is the only man who can see past her leather-and-lipstick demeanor, and that revelation is terrifying. She was fired for helping Titan on a questionable arrest she should’ve ignored, then partnered with Jared’s rival on an assignment in Afghanistan. Distance and danger do nothing to change her feelings. When she’s left on the side of a mountain to die, an unexpected ally comes forward, and might open her heart.
THE STAKES COULDN’T BE HIGHER
Saving Sugar isn’t a normal rescue operation. It pits Titan against its rival, Jared against his nemesis. Chasing Sugar’s heart isn’t a simple task, either. She fights him, fights them, always ready to run. When she becomes a pawn in a game of collateral damage, Jared must risk his life to save her—the woman whose bravado and surprising sweetness has given him the one thing he never had. Love.
Westin's Chase is book 3 in Cristin Harber's Titan Series, and while I didn't love it the way I did with the first 2 books, it was still a really good read! I think my biggest problem with Jared and Sugar's love story is, it was just tooo unbelievable. The 2 characters only had a couple encounters in the previous book, and even then there was no real connection. Jared thought Sugar was attractive and Sugar thought Jared was cute in a big bear kinda way, but readers didn't really get a love connection.
Well when Westin's Chase starts off, Sugar has fled her peaceful life to tag along on a military op seemingly to escape her attraction to Jared. WTF, where did that come from?
Once i got over the 2 not having a connection in the other books, I did enjoy their bantering back and forth. Sugar's snarky comments and her refusal to follow Jared's every command was refreshing. I also enjoyed Sugar's relationship with the child she rescues during the military op. While their interactions were brief, when they did spend time together, their conversations were heart warming. Harber also gives readers a more in depth look at Jared's 2nd in command, Brock Gamble. I'm psyched about getting my hands on his book because his actions in Westin's Chase has some serious repercussions for the future of the team and his role in future books!
All in all it was a good solid read that I enjoyed, but didn't LOVE! I'm giving it 3 notes and 4 flames.
