A Bookworm Review by Ana
I give this book 5 stars!
You can be broken but you have to get the chance to be happy. Have faith and things will change…
Have a look at the blurb:
Sharpshooter, Emily Rogers, was the best at what she did, until a job went tragically wrong resulting in the death of an innocent child. Haunted by guilt and harassed by the media, Emily turns her back on the only existence she’s known, hiding herself away and trying to build a new life.
When a job comes up requiring a sharpshooter, Hawk Elite medic, John Vega, has the perfect excuse to hunt down the woman he’s had a crush on for over two years. When he finally finds her living a quiet life in a small town on the coast, he makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
Aware she needs closure, Emily agrees to work with John, but soon it becomes obvious she has a target on her back. Can she trust John enough to stay and give in to the attraction growing between them? Or will life show her that she should have stayed hidden in her quiet coastal town?
Do you know that feeling of wanting more? That feeling that something was missing and you wanted to ease the pain and dig in? Well that was me all these months waiting for another book from this author. I know it can seems like I’m overreacting but I’m not. I love this author.
Beth Rhodes has an intense writing that can became complex due to the theme that she approaches but you will be hooked from the beginning.
One advise I need to give is that you have to read the first two books from this series, the Hawk Elite Security, because despite they are all standalones you need to know the characters and what better way to do so than to read all about them.
Strike Zone is her latest release and tells Emily and John’s stories.
Emily is hunted till this day due to a job that went wrong and got a child killed. She needed to get away from everything, people, media and try to find some comfort zone. She had lost her best friend and that was the trigger that made her the way she is.
John is a security guy that work at Hawk Security and a very good one. He had a secret crush for an amazing girl and he need to pursuit it, but how? When he is given a job to do he needs the help from the sharpest shooter so he needs Emily.
What will happen? Can they complete their task? Can lust become something more? Can they overcome their obstacles? Can Emily heal and forget?
Like I thought this book is freaking amazing. I just love a good suspense story. The plot is amazing and the interaction between the characters is very good.
In this book you will find suspense, crime, punishment, madness as well as love, loyalty, desire and friendship.
I’m overwhelmed will all that happened. Damn there were parts of the story that I was petrified but there were others that I melted.
I can’t wait for more books. I can’t wait.
Please Beth tell me that you’ll write Malcom and Marie’s story. Please I want to know more about them.

About the author:
Beth Rhodes grew up thinking she was going to travel the world and be a missionary, helping the poor. She would travel to exciting places…like Russia and Australia. She was going to wear a canvas backpack and take a wooden raft down a river through the jungle. She never had any plans for romance or getting married, either. But after a few years of college, studying English Literature, she married her own real-life hero, who patiently puts up with her absentmindedness and creativity… And the only poor babies she helps now are her own six children.
She learned that life doesn’t always go the way she plans, except for one thing, BOOKS.
At a young age, she read Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew then worked her way through series by Brock and Bodie Thoene and Gilbert Morris. And finally, she broke into romance with Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Nobody’s Baby But Mine. Her one constant, besides God, has always been books. So it was no surprise when she started writing them…
Beth writes in order to share a little love and lots of hope with a hurting world.
