Rebellious River – Lindsay Cross

Ethan Slade was a loner. No parents. No wife and kids. No liabilities. He had one love in his life – the Special Forces. As a member of the elite Task Force Scorpion, he’d been on more near death missions than most soldiers experienced in a lifetime and he liked it. So when his commander forced him to run protection for a senator’s daughter’s wedding, something a mall cop could do, he was pissed..
Kate Richards had a chip on her shoulder. After being fired from her job as a CIA analyst because her boss wanted her in his bed instead of behind a computer, Kate was left without a job or a clue as to what she would do next. So when the commander of an elite SF team asked her to help bodyguard at a high profile wedding, she did what she had to do. She took the job.
After years of ribbing and sexual harassment, Kate wanted nothing to do with men. Period. Especially tall, dark and handsome alpha male operative Ethan Slade. 
The last thing Ethan wanted or needed was to give up his life as a roamer, avoiding any attachments or obligations. But neither of them is prepared for the instant eruption of desire at their first meeting.
The two come together in an explosion of passion so potent it will leave them both marked for life. But just as quickly as they’ve come together, Kate is violently ripped from his fingers, and it’s up to Ethan to rescue the woman he’s come to love before he ends up alone again.
Rebellious River is the novella Ethan’s Promise that has been expanded into a full length novel. Ethan’s Promise is no longer available.

I’d like to thank Give me books promotions for sending me an e-arc of this book! The description drew me to this book and damn I was hooked from the moment I read to the moment I finished and then started the other books in this series. I think it’s very important for me to say that although this is from a series at no point did I feel like I had missed out on anything from not reading the other books. I do have to say after reading this book I did go on to get her other books too and I went down a deep deep hole of reading her books!

Kate was such a strong and independent woman I really loved her character and she was so sassy! I also enjoyed Ethan’s character the nice strong Alpha male I loved it! Some of my favourite parts of this book is when Ethan is winding Kate up just because she falls for it so easy and it makes me laugh so much. I loved the connection between these two characters as well as the sexual tension between the two. Which resulted in some hot and sexy sex scenes which were written amazingly! Such great writing!

I loved Kate’s interview! It was such a unique interview and I loved not only her reaction but the people that interviewed her. It was nice that after her boss from the CIA had tried to put her down that they were confident in her abilities and told her how good she was.

Aaron and Noni were so funny, I loved that Noni pretty much clocked on to how Ethan was as a person and similar to her husband. I loved that she could see straight through him. I also loved Aaron and how he managed to tease Ethan about Kate. The same with Ethan teasing Aaron when it came to Celine.

I really liked the relationship between Kate, Celine and Caroline.

That cliffhanger! Damn, that cliffhanger! This book had me in such a spin and it was such an amazing story, plot and characters as well as amazing writing! I loved this book so much and I cannot wait to read the rest of this series.
