Series: Adrenaline Search and Rescue bk 2
Author: Vivian Arend
Genre: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense
LIFELINE: an elite search-and-rescue squad based out of Banff, Alberta. Specializing in high-risk rescue missions, this team goes wherever the job takes them…
Alisha Bailey left a life of privilege for the dangerous but thrilling world of search and rescue. Denying the lure of attraction to her teammate is another sacrifice she’s made to prove to everyone—including her family— that she’s more than a pretty face or a business commodity. Since their training days, Devon Leblanc has used the competitive fire between them to hide his fascination with the petite beauty. When a natural disaster forces their rivalry aside, heated passion finally flares between them. Sexual pleasure slowly gives way to a new appreciation for each other’s skills—on the field and in the bedroom. But when unexplained accidents begin happening to the Lifeline team, their new found unity may be their only hope for survival…
Thoughts: Vivian Arend is one of the best authors writing today who with the press of few letters can take the most mundane words and turn them into something extraordinary.
In High Passion we get the story of teammates Alisha and Devon. Their love affair is off the charts HOT. There places where I had to fan myself it was so hot. When they make that transition from teammates and friends to lovers we get to see there is more to devil may care Devon than we thought. I do have to admit his back story is probably one of my favorites that I’ve read in recent books. The more I got to know him, the more I loved him.
We also get more of the SAR team and I have to admit this group is one of my favorites to read about. Not only is the relationship between Alisha and Devon off the charts, but what is happening in the team is great as well, and sets up so well for the next book. There was one small thing that bugged me but it wasn’t enough to detract from the story. I can’t wait to see what happens next with this team.
