Awesome book, awesome characters, awesome plot.

Josi was a very strong heroine and Daniel was a very caring but possessive alpha male.

Format: Paperback
This trade paperback book by Lucy Monroe is the story of Josette McCall (Josi) who is the daughter of a Vietname vet who now spends his time doing freelance training of mercenaries at his school in Oregon. After losing her mother at a young age, Josi was raised solely by her father and taught all the skills he knew in his determination to never have his daughter at anyone's mercy or have her endure some of the horrors he saw through his tours of duty.

In her mid-twenties and after a serious injury, Josi has at last decided to leave the mercenary way of life and explore a career in computers. Her father had just taken on a partner in his business in the person of brooding and dark explosives expert Daniel Black Eagle (Nitro).

When her father's compound is torched and her father disappears from the hospital she had taken him to, Josi finds herself partnering up with Daniel in an effort to discover who had destroyed the merc school and just where her MIA father has disappeared to.

This partnership throws these two old aquaintances together where we discover that their assumed mutual dislike was actually covering a great deal of sexual attraction and chemistry between the beautiful merc woman and the modern day Sioux warrior. Their hot tempers and assumptions about their own natures and desires cause them no end of trouble as well as great pleasure during the mission they are both determined to complete.

---------------------------------------

I enjoyed this book quite a bit and it may well be my current favorite of Lucy's books. Josi was a very strong heroine and Daniel was a very caring but possessive alpha male.

Format: Paperback
A series about mercenaries - hmmmm, sounds yummy to me. Who doesn't like hard-as-nails, rough and tough alpha male characters to steam up the pages we're reading? While I thought this is what the book's description was promising, I didn't see that potential fulfilled once I got into the book. Unfortunately, this second in Monroe's merc series fell short of the romantic novel mark.

Josette McCall is tired of the mercenary business and the life of a soldier, and since she was only in it to please her father, she's decided it's time to move on and begin a normal life she's never had the opportunity to experience. First dates, first kisses...first love - she's ready for some normal life lessons that she missed growing up. When her father offers her a partnership in his merc training school, she refuses and the offer goes to Daniel Black Eagle, one of his former students. Josie has harbored secret desires for the enigmatic merc, but she's always gotten the impression he couldn't stand her. When Josie's dad is hurt in a surprise bombing at his compound, Daniel, a.k.a. Nitro, steps in to help her when her dad also disappears from the hospital. It's no big deal for him really, not when he's got the perfect opportunity to get closer to the woman that's been driving him crazy with desire since they'd first met. He's right where he wants to be and he's going to assure Josie's safety as well as make his true feelings known.

I think the problem for me while reading this book was that I could not see the characters as the book's description promises them to be. Josie is supposed to be the best trained, the most capable of her father's soldiers, smart and fully capable of taking care of herself.

Format: Paperback
Willing by Lucy Monroe is an emotional, all out sexy and wickedly fun read.

All Josie McCall knows is being a trained solder. She realizes there is a life outside of being a mercenary and breaks away from her dad's training school. But someone has bombed the school and her dad barely escapes with his life. Now Josie's dad is missing from the hospital and she needs the help of her dad's business partner. Only bad thing is Daniel Black Eagle sets her heart and soul on fire.

Daniel Eagle has fought his attraction to Josie from the start. She is always in his thoughts one way or another. Now with her father missing Daniel is all set to protect her around the clock. He has his work cut out for him getting independent Josie to agree to have a bodyguard. Being with Josie all the time is playing with fire. Once Daniel learns Josie's feelings are the same, watch out.

Willing is jammed packed with high stakes intrigue, deep-seated emotions and smoking desires. Daniel and Josie both are shaped by their upbringing and it takes the strengths of both of them to forge a future. Their attraction is one of the most sensual books I have read in a while. You can feel both their inner turmoil's on many levels. I can't wait to read the final book in this series, Able.

Format: Paperback
Jossie is a "retired" mercenary, her father is the owner of a training school for soldiers. But when his school is burnt to the ground in an explosion she has to go for one last mission. Daniel "Nitro" is a loner mercenary that just recently made partners with Jossie's dad at the school and is Willing to help her in finding out what happened and who did it. This is a story of growing respect and trust. One where you will find yourself sighting, loving the way the author describes feelings and conflicts. A story with the sensual side of a romance, and the barriers that the characters due to their careers and upbringing have to overcome. As a follow up story this book can be read alone, but you will have a better understanding of some facts if you read Ready first. This one reminds me a little of The real Deal and as usual you can never go wrong with Lucy's books.
