She nearly ruined his life. Now she needs him to save hers.
Computer hacker Bliss Bennett accepted a simple job: access confidential files and turn them over to the CIA. But something went wrong. Now, she has a target on her back. And the only man who can save her wouldn’t give her a glass of water if she was dying of thirst. Not that she blames him.
But she has to try.
Sky Kelley isn’t the same man who fell in love with the bewitching genius whose lies nearly cost him his military career. These days he’s a badass commando with lethal moves to match his mad hacking skills. And he’s not inclined to do Bliss any favors.
But Sky isn’t wired to turn away anyone in distress. He’ll do what it takes to protect her, but he won’t get emotionally involved. Not ever again.
Except truth has a way of revealing itself, especially when a deadly enemy sets his sights on Bliss…

I found Hack to have been too harsh on Bliss. And Bliss didn't really trust Hack enough while they were together. This story read like a movie with the CIA taggings, Ricin poisoning, etc. In the end, all is well with a HFN. Bliss was right at the end, the couple has a bit of a road if they are going to be happy enough to marry (again).
"Because you're my girl, Bliss. You'll always be my girl."
Oh, Lordy!! These men of HOT are just that. HOT!! I have loved this series from the start and it just keeps getting better and better! This was a great love-to-hate-to-love story that tugs at your heartstrings! Hurt. Regret. Hate. Love. Fear. All the feels for sure!
Bliss Bennett has lied all her life. She'll play the role to get the job done, then she's gone. As a contract hacker, she's the best of the best. Four years ago, the job went wrong. A life was lost, and two hearts were destroyed. Now, she's in trouble and the one man who hates her is her only ticket to survival. Her ex-husband. The question is, does he hate her enough to turn her away, or is there any part of him that cares enough to help her? If she makes it out of this alive, will she be able to walk away from him again?
Sky "Hacker" Kelly never thought he'd see her again. Not that he ever wanted to . Everything they had was a lie and she destroyed them both. He gave her his heart once. Now he wouldn't give her the time of day. When she shows up on his doorstep, claiming that her life is in danger, why should he believe her? Another con, another dollar - that's her M.O. But, when her story checks out and it's clear that she's crossed the wrong person this time, he can't turn her away. It's not in his nature to be anything but protective. He has no doubt he can keep her safe. Can he say the same about his heart?
Holy Hannah are these two hot together! You could feel the hurt coming off of both of them as they try to get past their pain, but then when they stop fighting what they want - Hoo-Wee!! The chemistry is off the charts!! This is a great addition to the series!! A definite must read!!
That’s certainly the case when Bliss finds herself on Sky’s doorstep ... and boom-boom-pow, when his beautiful ex begs for him to keep her safe, all of his anger, hurt and mistrust from the past four years barrels against the wall he’d constructed around his heart.
Bliss knows that Sky has every reason to not trust her but where do you turn when the world has turned on you and someone is literally trying to kill you?
But from the moment her HOT protector agrees to help, I could feel that familiar sizzle starting to pop - a rush that is uniquely Lynn Rays Harris’ own brand of literary foreplay.
The “dance” between Sky wanting to do what is right and wanting to hold onto his anger for Bliss’ betrayal was electric.
Lynn’s carefully crafted characters are strategically developed (with military bearing that is both practical and believable) and I love that those personalities are intricately woven through other HOT family stories. It is that character “building” that I love the most about this series. I’ve been curious since Briar Rose was first briefly mentioned and seeing it all come full circle in a way that literally made my heart thud and swell, I couldn’t put this one down, as I begged for these two struggling souls to fight for their happily ever after.
More than anything, Lynn “gets” that romance and sex and relationships are not always rainbows and sunshine. In fact, we all know that any relationship has highs and lows and downright Bliss and Sky and every other character in this series is human ... filled with relatable flaws and pride and struggle and humor that make them not only relatable, but lovable.
You never forget your first love and you will have to see for yourself if Bliss can convince Sky that what they had was special enough to take a second chance on.

Bliss Bennett currently works for CIA but her most recent job has made her a target and there is only one person she knows that can help her, but that means going back to the past and facing someone she still loves.
I loved the chemistry between Sky and Bliss from the get go and the book also gave you a chance to see more of Echo squad. This is very much a second chance story and if this is something you love then I would recommend it. I’m looking forward to more from HOT and what the boys can get up to next.
A second chance romance where things get very HOT & very dangerous. The chemistry between the two is still there after four years, where both meet after Bliss runs into some trouble and the only other person she trusts enough and can turn to is her ex-husband.
There was sexy, comedy, banter, intrigue, action and adventure.
It was great seeing more of the team. Can't wait for the next book.
What more can we want from Lynn Raye Harris. Thank you Lynn.
