Lock and Load by Desiree Holt

A sniper and a reporter—can they face danger together?

Women are the best stress reliever for Delta Force sniper Beau Williams and variety is definitely the spice of his life—until he meets sexy, feisty sports reporter Megan Welles. The sparks between them are caused as much by the heated sexual attraction as by the force of their personalities. But the more time they spend together, the brighter the flame burns.

Megan is working on the story of a lifetime—the unexplained deaths of several aging athletes who had stellar years. They only realize how dangerous her hunt is when she receives threatening texts and an attempt is made to take her out of the game.

When everything explodes in a hostage situation, Beau and his Delta Force team leader save her, but Beau can’t deal with the way she put herself in jeopardy and she can’t handle what she sees as his controlling attitude. Can the Christmas season heal the breach between them?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence, references to illegal drugs, a scene of attempted murder, and a scene involving a hostage situation.

This is the second book in this series, but I believe that it can be read as a standalone.

Beau is a tough sniper who prides himself on his ability to read people and do his job well. He has never really believed in love or even in true relationships but seeing his brothers-in-arms start to pair off gets him thinking. Then when he meets Megan, she starts to seal the deal for him. He starts to want things that he has never wanted before.

Megan is an independent woman who is awesome at finding the story. When she sees a pattern among older athletes, she starts after the story – not really caring if there are consequences. But when it becomes apparent that someone is after her, she is thankful to have Beau close.

Beau's need to protect is kicked into gear when he realizes that Megan is walking a dangerous road. He has a degree from MIT and lends a hand in more than one way to Megan. These two have a great relationship when they are together, but when push comes to shove and both want what they want – Beau to protect and Megan to continue to have her independence – they will have to decide if they can compromise or if walking away will be the best decision.

For me, this was a great story. The only issue I had was the predictability. The who done it, for me, was obvious and that took away from the story.
