After putting her life on the line to protect classified intelligence, military psychologist Mia Kensington is on a cross-country road trip from hell with an intrusive save-the-day hero. Uninterested in his white knight act, she’d rather take her chances without the ruggedly handsome, cold-blooded operative who boasts an alpha complex and too many guns. 

Colby Winters, an elite member of The Titan Group, has a single objective on his black ops mission: recover a document important to national security. It was supposed to be an easy in-and-out operation. But now, by any means necessary becomes a survival mantra when he faces off with a stunning woman he can’t leave behind. 

When Titan’s safe houses are compromised, Colby stashes Mia at his home, exposing his secret—he’s the adoptive father of an orphaned baby girl. Too soon, danger arrives and Mia lands in the hands of a sadistic cartel king with a taste for torture. As hours bleed into fear-drenched days, Colby races across the globe and through a firestorm of bullets to save the woman he can’t live without.


DNF Review

Was a freebie at time I picked Winters Heat up. I just could not get into this. I was forcing myself to read and that is just not enjoyable. I stopped at 48%. 

The character’s just did not work for me. The first kiss was at a very un-cool moment & they hardly knew each other, before becoming all physical.
The lead guy started doing some stupid things, for being a member of an elite military team. Exp: Instead of taking her to his impenetrable head quarters, Titan Group, he takes her to his home to protect her??? 

Wanted to like this, but did not. Even though this one was a DNF for me, does not mean it won’t work for you, so if you find the blurb interesting I urge you to give it a shot.

  1. Ya I agree Braine. I’ve done it a few times. It’s hard to say “ya this is not working” and put it down.

  2. What I hate the most about not finishing a book is the wasted time I spent trying to convince myself that it’ll get better, when I could’ve been curled up with something better

    • Ya Anna I have heard great things about this series and author, but I just couldn’t finish. I tried, but as you know their are so many books out their to choose to read that we just have to DNF the ones that don’t work.
