Reviewed by Indy



Sheltered by her Asian-American parents, Mia Kirsten’s life has been one of heritage and honor. A good girl with a bad girl aching to break free, she’s not prepared for the entrance of ex Special Forces operative Trace Kocourek, the man sent to protect her from a killer bent on revenge. Trace is nothing like the men...boys...she’s come across in her past she never looked at them twice. Trace however has her deciding if maybe being an innocent is something she no longer wants to be. Virgins aren’t something a man like Trace is used to in his world but trying to stay away from the Asian beauty is the same as trying not to breath. The two will have to come to terms with the desires raging between them but keep their guard up because their shared enemy is waiting to deliver a “final” strike.

Let’s see...virginal vixen, jaded soldier and a cast of other characters from villains to friends and you have the ingredients that make up Point of Combustion. From first chapter readers are exposed to a heroine who definitely is not what she appears. Intelligent, cultured and beautiful on one hand but a siren in waiting on the other, Mia Kirsten is a complex creature to say the least. That’s why partnering her with Trace, a man who lives life by his own rules and is honor driven with a dirty boy side to his character was just the right mix. Dawn Ryder again proves why she is stellar when it comes to the gruff and naughty side of love. The men in her stories are the types who make women drool with longing and have lesser men shivering in their boots. Fans of Dawn Ryder will be happy that yet again she’s come out with a winner.
