A covert ops specialist, a cyber-surveillance expert, and an unmatched international security and recovery pro. These are the men of Fortis. When money is no object, discretion is essential, and the police are not an option, the wealthy and powerful call on this trio of former government agents with elite military training–not to mention charm and good looks. . .
With his tech brilliance, lethal physical abilities, and easygoing manner, Lucas Johnson is a triple threat. And that’s exactly what Magnus Motorsport needs to protect their game-changing engine design, and its engineer, Alex Cotts, from hackers and saboteurs. Lucas isn’t expecting any surprises–until he discovers Alex is actually a sexy, irresistible woman. . .
In a male-dominated industry, Alex has always tried to hide her alluring femininity. But Lucas has no trouble seeing her beauty–or her stubborn streak. Alex is convinced she doesn’t need him to babysit her–or distract her with his sex appeal. Yet when a suspicious fire destroys Alex’s work, she finds herself turning to him. In the face of increasing danger, soon Lucas must keep her alive, as his client–and as the only woman he’s ever truly wanted. . .
It was poet and aesthetic philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who suggested that if a writer could infuse a “human interest and a semblance of truth” into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgement concerning the implausibility of the narrative.
I found myself doing just that, and was very entertained for the two hours that it took me to read Hard and Fast. The plot captured my attention to the point that I must purchase the first book. Hard and Fast is a fast-paced suspenseful romance that keeps you on the edge of your seat. And if you are into cars this book will be right up your ally. In a male-dominated industry, Alex has always tried to hide her alluring feminitity. I guess she couldn’t help it, especially working in a man world. However, this part of the story bothered me, there are a lot of women in the world who has knowledge on cars and the mechanics that they don’t try to hide that they are all female just because they like working on cars. Other than that Hard and Fast was a very entertaining story.
