After losing the love of my life, I don’t have a heart left to give anyone. So when my friend tries to set me up with BDSM romance author Chloe Martin, the only answer I can give is hell no. Unfortunately for me, Chloe is also a journalist working a story on the Latin Kings, and my boss orders me to protect her while she carries out her research. But she’s so reckless, I’m going to have my hands full keeping her alive, let alone keeping her in line.
FBI agent Dex Scott is sexy as sin and completely off-limits. After what my bastard ex-husband put me through, I’m not interested in intimacy of any kind. But the chemistry between us is undeniable, and when Dex makes it clear that he wants to help with my research in the field and in the bedroom, I can’t resist.
His protective instincts turn possessive as dangers from my past and present rise up to threaten me. The powerful Dom demands my submission and my love. He won’t relent until he breaks down all my walls, including the ones that protect my ravaged heart.
Note: This story is set in the Impossible Series world, but Hero can be read as a standalone romantic suspense novel.
Chloe was a bit of a surprise character for me to read because of what she went through with her past. It was quite interesting reading about her and what she was going through, and fighting against. I at times thought this would turn around and Chloe be the Dom because of her territorial stance in front of her Dom. I loved this book so much in many ways! I loved the writing, the characters and I am grateful for Ms. Sykes because she brought me out of a reading funk! Hero woke me up in more ways than one and I must go back and read this series from the beginning! Congrats to Ms. Sykes on her release of one of the hottest books I have read in a while!
