The Perfect Hostage

I don't know about you, but I think the idea of novellas is looking even better considering in the next few months my time for fun reading is going to be limited. So here's one to add if you are in the mood for something quick and good.

The Perfect Hostage (A Super Agent Novella)
The Perfect Hostage (A Super Agent Novella)
Lucie Morgan has finally found a man who doesn't care she's the daughter of a famous billionaire. All she needs is one weekend to convince him the crush she's had since he rescued her from a terrorist has grown into much more.

Sergeant John Quick has seen the worst in life, both personally and professionally. He long ago decided loving someone comes at too high a price. But when the woman of his dreams "kidnaps" him for a weekend affair with no strings attached, he can't resist.

The smoking-hot weekend turns deadly when John and Lucie are trapped during a blizzard and discover they're not alone. Someone from their past has come hunting for revenge. Now John must become the perfect hostage in order to save Lucie's life.

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good romance novel, but make it a military romance? All in. I am all in, even if I don't fully know what I'm signing up for. I don't know why I didn't specifically look for a guy in the military when I was single because lawd, child they are delicious. Something about a woman's primal instinct of wanting to be protected but at the same time know that he could throw you around on a bed in a good way is just a really great combination. That alone is why I devour military romance novels because... woo. 

Let us all fan ourselves for just a second and try to gain some composure like the ladies that we are. 

Obviously, a book comes before this one and I missed that because the book is basically a reunion between John and Lucie. From what I gather, Lucie gets kidnapped by terrorists and John saves the day and she falls in love with him, he does too but denies it, etc. The basic scenario of any good romance novel. This novel is their reunion and Lucie plans to kidnap John and essentially seduce him into staying with her. He's all for having "quality time" with her so doesn't really resist. Enter snow storm (dun, dun, dun) and just as things are getting good, someone breaks into the house and insanity ensues. 

Literally, every great thing in a romance novella is here. Sure, it's a novella so things are obviously rushed but who cares because the author gets it all in there and it's glorious. So good. My only complaint is that man, I was holding out for some really great romance scenes. I want ACTION! But, it's a novella so we can only get so much, and regardless- I really liked it. I liked it enough to add a few more of her books onto my To Read List, so I would recommend this. Especially if you want to read and don't have enough time to really read a long, drawn out book. If that's the case, novellas are your new best friend. To find our more about Misty and her writing, check out her website and her blog!
