Hunter by Mandy Harbin Blog Tour

After finally getting out of her disastrous relationship, Maya Carmichael has sworn off all bad boys. Sure they’re hot. The attitude? No thanks. But when her car is vandalized while on a night out with her roommate, she realizes her ex is truly sadistic. Her friend insists they lay low for a few days while the cops do their thing. Unfortunately her temporary haven will throw her in the path of another bad boy. Oh, she’s heard stories about her roommate’s brother, Hunter, and he’s just the type she wants to avoid. Until she sees him … and all good intentions fly out of her busted windshield.

Hunter Anderson might be the easygoing jokester within the Bang Shift crew—the small Arkansas town’s mechanics and the government’s secret mercenaries—but underneath his lighthearted exterior lurks demons of a past he’d love nothing more than to forget. Working on cars and taking the occasional contracted mission help, but he fears nothing will stop his past from coming back to haunt him. No one has tried penetrating the façade to get to the real person below. No one, until Maya.

The attraction is undeniable, but there’s more to Hunter than he can ever let on, and for Maya, this hot distraction makes it easy to forget the real danger she’s in. It has nothing to do with losing her heart to him.

When really it has everything to do with just that.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I read Hunter right after I closed Brody. I am wishing I didn't do that and had some filler books in between. I am in no way saying Hunter is a bad book. I really did enjoy it, but coming off the super suspenseful, sexy, angsty Brody it just did produce the same way for me.

Hunter seemed more rushed, the relationship between Hunter and Maya didn't have time to grow. There really wasn't a whole lot with Hunter and Maya actually together throughout the story so to me their insta-love felt off/forced almost. Brody was a very intense read, Hunter just seemed so much lighter even considering what was going on.

Will I continue on with the series? Absolutely. They are written well. I am so invested in Brody and Xan I have to know what happens to them throughout the series. I do love the guys at Bang Shift, the banter back and forth especially with Roc. I NEED to know his story, Bear's too. I am definitely intrigued by Blade, can't wait to see what he is all about.

This is the second in the series, and although I think it could be read as a standalone, there would be more understanding of some of the group dynamics if you had read Brody first. It is quite a different story, which I liked, as I can be frustrated when a series seems to follow a formula.

The story has a good twist to it, and is not predictable at all – well except for the inevitable and rather hot, yet sweet romantic interest! I found it to be an easy read, with plenty of action, believable emotions and a desirable outcome. I enjoyed the foreshadowing of the next Bang Shift members to fall to romance, and look forward to reading their adventures in the future.
