Hot Rebel by Lynn Raye Harris

Hot Rebel (Hostile Operations Team #6)Book Description:
A rebel on the run…

Victoria Royal is a traitor. Or so the U.S. government believes. Victoria was once a promising sniper in the Army, but now she’s gone rogue—worse, she’s just landed in the middle of a Hostile Operations Team mission in the desert and blasted it all to hell. 

Nick “Brandy” Brandon doesn’t expect to run into Victoria when he’s bugging out from a mission gone wrong. It’s been more than three years since she disappeared from the sniper course they were in together, and he’s finally stopped thinking about her killer curves and smart mouth. 

But now she’s back—and she’s far more dangerous than Nick ever believed possible… Is she really a traitor? Or is there something more at stake? He has to decide fast—because time’s running out and too many lives hang in the balance…

My Thoughts:
This was definitely a hot read!  Nick is a sniper.  That is his position with his team and he excels at it.  When someone ruins his mission, he is mad and wants revenge.  What he doesn't expect is to run into Victoria in the middle of the desert.  Victoria is a sniper too, but not for the Military.  She works for whoever it takes to get what she wants.  Nick thinks she is a traitor but the more he gets to know about her the more he thinks his assumption may be wrong.  The zing of attraction between them doesn't make his thought process any smoother, but it is certainly entertaining getting under her...skin. 
I really liked Nick.  The thoughts I got of him from Victoria made me wonder if I would but then we see the past and get perspective.  He was a competitive guy who wanted to win and she was his competition.  The attraction between them is intense and I wasn't expecting a couple of the twists thrown into the story.  That being said I completely enjoyed the whole book.  Victoria is made of strong stuff and will do anything for family.  Nick is the same way but he has a team to watch his back.  Both are great and I really liked the glimpses I got of Nick's team!
This was a 4/5 for me.  I intend to go back and read the earlier books in this series!
