More About the Author

Katie Porter is the multiple award-winning writing team of Lorelie Brown and Carrie Lofty, friends for so long that they've stopped counting the years. Carrie holds an MA in history, loves movies, and has no fear of gross things like dissecting formaldehyde sharks. Her two daughters aren't appreciative. Lorelie is a US Army veteran and true-crime devotee, whose three boys love when she screams like a little girl around spiders.

Since launching the glitzy "Club Devant" series, set in a New York City burlesque club, the duo will return to their military-themed roots in the summer of 2014 with the adventurous, La Femme Nikita-inspired "Command Force Alpha" series.

Own was an awesome read. It reminds me of Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. Not the story itself, but the way it encompasses multiple genres. You get romantic suspense, action & adventure, and a contemporary military romance all with a healthy dose of some seriously hot BDSM/erotica. Ms. Porter (the pen name for the collaborative writing efforts of Lorelie Brown and Carrie Lofty) has created a fascinating read that only prior obligations and major exhaustion kept me from reading it in one sitting.

The action & adventure elements of this book keep the storyline moving full-steam ahead. The contemporary military romance and the romantic suspense aspects intertwine to produce plotlines that cannot be reviewed without revealing spoilers (NOTE – do NOT read the blurb for book 2 until you have read Own unless you want a spoiler). But it is the way in which Ms. Porter weaves the BDSM/erotica elements throughout the book that probably fascinated me most. I read a LOT of BDSM/erotica books and most of them focus on the D/s relationship. The relationship between Katsu and Evan starts off as a D/s relationship – both times. However, the second time around it begins to morph into an M/s relationship. I don’t read many M/s books; not because I don’t like them, but because I haven’t found many authors who can write them successfully. In my opinion, the relationship that Ms. Porter creates between Katsu and Evan captures the dynamic that is necessary to make the Master and slave relationship believable. In their relationship, when Evan takes on the role of Master he is able to give Katsu what she needs to feel whole and vice versa, her following his commands fulfills his need to own a woman, especially a woman he loves and who loves him back.

This is book one in the series. And I intend to read the rest especially if their like this one.
This was a seriously hot and sexy book the story was well written, and omg the lead man in rthis story his description is of one hot and sexy guy and he's military too what more can you ask for but Evan Sommers is also a Dom he jst dose not know it. I degress
Let me tell you about the story this story is about a couple who are clearly natural submissive and dominant trying to find their way into a world they do not know and avoid a threat that is forever present.

When a mission goes south, Colonel Stafford, head of a Elite miltary ops team is injured and from his hospital-bed orders his protégé. Evan to keep the colonel’s daughter, Katsu, safe from retaliation. Should be easy right this could be further from it Four years have passed since his secret affair with sweet, compliant Katsu. Now she’s a streetwise pool shark who refuses to obey any command. He takes her to his home. And Kat resists the need for Evan’s protective shadow, until deadly threats to her safety change things . Her future depends on this hardened soldier, and their sizzling dynamic reveals what Kat’s bland college dating life lacked—a man with the will and desire to tame her. Katsu is a submissive, she needs order in her life. And that is something Evan can provide. yet a real relationship is impossible. Evan is the warrior who could be her Master, but how can she fully submit? The next mission—even the next knock on the door—could rob Kat of the man she loves. Will they find away to cope, so their love can grow have to read to find out.

I love Katie Porter books! Why? Because they are never what you expect them to be. After reading their Vegas Top Guns series and their Club Devant books I was excited to read this new series because come on people...a Spec Ops unit and BDSM? I'm so in!!

For an erotic military suspense the pace was quite slow and it took me a while to get in the flow of things. This is probably because it's the first book in the series and there's need for setting up the background and world it's set in. The slow pace also managed to crank up the intensity and the sexual tension, taking the anticipation super high. With every page I read I became more and more entranced by the story of Evan and Katsu and by the military suspense plot and by the time I reached the end I knew Command Force Alpha is going to be another Katie Porter series I will love!

Memorable Scene:
- the one in the pool hall, with the bet > Evan is! And Katsu is something else!
- the one in the shower > I <3 shower sex scenes!
- the one with the ritual > Yep, I cried...of course!

Own, (Command Force Alpha), Katie Porter
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews 
I do enjoy a romance with something extra to lift it – in this case there was the subtle BDSM angle, the need for control Evan had allied to the need to be controlled that Kat had, even though she wasn’t fully aware of it. She’d made some tentative enquiries in that direction in the past, but been put off by what she’d learned. Evan wasn’t professional but he knew what worked for him, and was able to translate that into what Kat needed.
Kat ( Katsu) – was a lovely lead. Part Japanese, multi – lingual and fiercely independent. She loves her father, has always accepted his career came first though and has very loving memories of her mother who died when she was young. She’s done a bit more sneaking into her father’s career that he knows though, not realising just how dangerous that can be given who and what his his work involves. She loved Evan, even though they only has a six week relationship before he left her four years ago, dropping her like a hot brick to work for her father. Now he’s second in command, and back with orders to look after Kat til the current crisis which threatens her is over. 
At first they are very edgy, Kat is still full of resentment at the way he left, while Evan doesn’t really understand why. He thinks he did what was best, leaving that way, not realising that with the loss of her mother, and with her father being away so much Kat needed more from him. But hell, he’s a bloke  thinking isn’t always their strong point! Now he’s back, and the attraction between them is as strong as ever. Forced into 24 hrs. a day contact he can see what she needs, someone to take control and it pulls at his instincts to protect through order and discipline.
