I bought this book based on the exclusively five star reviews this book had but meanwhile I really feel bad (?) or should I say peculiar, because although this book is entertaining, according to my opinion it’s not a five star book.
The plot was nothing unusual but as I already said, it was entertaining enough. Its strength was definitely its main characters. Dos was a very troubled soul who during his last mission was terribly tortured and finally injected an unknown virus. His pain, suffering and insecurities as to how his life would go on were perfectly depicted.
Copper on the other hand was a very worthy counterpart who tried in a very sensitive and devoted way to help Dos conquer his destiny. She had a very positive attitude towards life and tried through her love to help Dos regain control over what he considered important in life.
However, the plot never really captivated me but just streamed towards the end. The villains’ motives remained dubious and some traits definitely should have been further developed. Throughout Dos and Copper’s discussions some serious issues were put forward but were never really integrated into the plot (i.g. abortion, single parenthood). Finally, the book ended without revealing if Dos will return to the military or not. I only found out when reading an extract from the next installment.
Generally speaking the book was entertaining enough but according to my opinion didn’t create a captivating atmosphere. I felt that Dos and Copper tried to handle their emotions in a mature way, which was unusual for this genre but I missed the sizzling and burning attraction between them.
Dos is recuperating from a mission gone bad and waiting for an antidote to a virus that was administered to him by his captor before he got rescued. Coming from a military background he is not used to people or his family looking after him. No matter how bad he knows his condition is, he cannot let his family get involved. Then came Copper, an ex military nurse who doesn't know how to back out from an argument and knows how to win it. Coming from a military family, where her father turned out to be the C.O. of Dos. Copper knows how to get around Dos' stubbornness. These two are a match made in heaven. They complement and complete each other even before they declare what they truly feel.
I liked how the author made Copper different from other heroine who is all soft. Copper is a woman who knows what she wants and go for it no matter what the consequences are. She is not even afraid to be the first to make a move on Dos and knows when to stop so as not to intimidate Dos. Dos on the other hand had tried very hard to protect Copper from him and the hurt she may feel if he eventually dies because of the virus inflicted on him.
The ending may have come abrupt and you may find yourself wanting more of Dos and Copper. Good thing is, the book comes with the preview of the next Masters series and it includes how apparently Dos and Copper ended up. It may even influence you to read the next book just to get more of Dos and Copper. The Masters' triplet has proven they each have their own charm and can incite you to each of their own story. Definitely a must read, I may even repeat it if there is nothing else to read.
Dos is a Major in the Army. He and his team were captured in South America by a drug lord.
Dos's men were all tortured to death in front of him and he himself was tortured and turned into a guinea pig to test drugs for his drug lord captor Cordone.
Dos was rescued and is now home in Colorado with his family.
Dos was badly injured by Cordone. He is covered in scars and has a very bad leg. Dos is tough and can deal with pain. What he can't deal with is his seizures. These are brought on by the drugs and virus's that Cordone used on him. The attacks come and go at any time.
Dos's two brothers, Ace and Tres, know about the attacks and do they're best to help. Dos doesn't want anyone else to know and in fact preferes to be alone.
Enter one Copper Kerrigan. She owns the massage parlor across the street from Master Security which is where Dos is working till he's fit enought, if he's ever fit enought, to go back to his Army life.
Coppers business has been broken into and Dos mosey's over to see if he can help. Next thing you know someone tries to break into her house.
To many coincidences for Dos and Tres his policeman brother.
Of course Copper is the daughter of Dos's CO and so begins one great story.
This one takes some surprising turns and even included Kiz. Coppers Wolfound mix dog. I'm a dog lover and absolutely love it when authors include k-9's in a story. To bad Kiz didn't rip out a few throats. LOL
Five stars for this one.
