has wanted Mackenzie Wade from the moment they met back in
high school. Fifteen years later, Will is still relegated
to the role of best friend; a role he’s tired of playing.
With a single kiss, Mackenzie changes everything. It’s the
breakthrough Will’s been waiting for, and this time he’s not
taking no for an answer.
come to rely on Will’s friendship and no amount of lust is
going to make her risk their friendship. Her psychic gift
has brought more than one relationship to a crashing halt,
and though Will swears he’d never leave her, Mackenzie still
fears taking that chance. When a storm brings Will to her
doorstep, Mackenzie finds she can’t resist the heat between
them. A night of passion leads to further complications
when Mackenzie experiences a tragic vision of the future.
Resolutely guarding her heart, Mackenzie tries to put Will
back in the “friend zone.” But Mackenzie is about to learn
firsthand just how determined her sexy SEAL can be.
Love, lust, and
longing fulfilled come together in the deliciously erotic
Heat of the Storm. There is just something so
appealing about a man willing to fight for his love.
Perhaps that’s why Will is one of, if not my absolute
favorite hero of Elle Kennedy’s. Having met Will in the
previous Out of Uniform stories, I was anxious for his
story, eager to see what kind of hero he would be. I loved
discovering that his quiet exterior concealed a deep
sensuality. He also grabbed my heart with his absolute
certainty of his love for Mackenzie, his willingness to wait
for her, and his knowing when he had to say “enough is
enough.” Though I wished I could snatch Will up myself, Ms.
Kennedy made me understand why Mackenzie was so reticent to
fully give her heart to Will. Still, I rooted for the
moment when Mackenzie realized she had to take that step,
that holding Will at arm’s length was not the right answer
to her problems.
Heat of the
is the third book in Ms. Kennedy’s fantastic Out of Uniform
series. Each story in the series stands on its own, but
having read Heat of the Moment and Heat of Passion,
I was delighted that I got to revisit my favorite characters
from those two books. In the end, all I can say is that I
absolutely adored Heat of the Storm. Will and
Mackenzie’s romance touched my heart even as their passion
stole my breath. Ms. Kennedy never fails to deliver an
incredible romance and I finished Heat of the Storm
wonderfully satisfied, wanting nothing more than to read
another Out of Uniform tale.
