MT Review: Guardian (Dark Ops) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Guardian" the 5th book in her Dark Ops series by Catherine Mann.

Product Description



After a dark ops malfunction, Major David Berg finds himself dead center in a military trial. It’s a race against time to root out the truth, and Major Sophie Campbell isn’t making that any easier. The hot JAG wants to bring down David’s unit and fast. His testimony is crucial to winning a case that will make her career. All Sophie has to do is ignore this witness’s unflappable charm, his unnerving good looks, and a strong, solid presence that commands her attention.

It’s not easy for David, either. His attraction to this take-charge beauty is turning him inside out. But these adversaries have more in common than secret, mutual desire. There’s a traitor somewhere in the dark ops and now, to find him, David and Sophie must work together — relentlessly, tirelessly, and so intimately it could be damn near fatal.

My Review:

Major Sophie Campbell is a JAG lawyer determined to find out the truth behind a tragic shooting which result in a young boy being shot and crippled.  If she wins this case it would help the boy but ruin the career of the pilot involved with a spotless record.  She believes she has no time for a real relationship but Major David Berg revs up her engine and she is determined to ignore her attraction.

Major David Berg is the director in charge of the unit that was testing the military guns and knows his pilot didn't cause the gun to malfunction.  He can't figure out what caused the gun to misfire by itself and decides to team up with Sophie to find out the truth.  He has had feelings for Sophie for awhile and when she is put in danger he takes it personally.

As they investigate further the attraction between them is harder and harder to ignore and they finally give in to it.  As they get closer to the truth someone doesn't want them to find out the real truth and resorts to murder to accomplish that.

I really like how there were red herrings that would cause to think a certain person was to blame and when we finally find out who the culprit is - I was quite surprised and never would have guessed it would be that person.

The attraction between Sophie and David was very hot, sizzling and steamy.  When they finally give into their desire it was really hot and loving.
