"Exit Strategy" (Lena Diaz) ★★★★ with GIVEAWAY!!

Exit Strategy
EXIT Inc. # 1
By: Lena Diaz
Releasing June 30, 2015



Lena Diaz launches her thrilling new series featuring the undercover vigilantes of EXIT Inc. with a skilled operative putting his life—and his heart—on the line for a woman in trouble...

When Sabrina Hightower awakens to the sound of an intruder, she figures he's there to rob her, murder her— or worse. She doesn't expect to be carried off by a muscle-bound stud with male-model good looks... or that he came to rescue her.

Mason Hunt became an enforcer with EXIT Inc. to eliminate the bad guys—terrorists, militia groups, all those who would do America harm. But his latest target is innocent. If EXIT could lie about sultry, strong-willed Sabrina, what darker truths might they be concealing?

Going rogue in the rugged North Carolina Mountains, Mason risks everything to keep Sabrina close, especially now that EXIT's lethal assassins are chasing them down. The heat is on... but it's nothing compared to the slow burn of seduction.



Mason pressed Sabrina back against the blanket, their arms and legs tangled up in each other. The kiss was hot, wild, completely out of control. Someone whimpered. It might have been him. He rolled with her in his arms, desperate to get closer, to pull her shirt off of her.
Her eyes were slightly glazed as she looked up at him. He imagined he looked about the same way. His fingers shook as he tried to undo the ridiculously tiny buttons on her blouse. For some reason, the task seemed beyond his mental capabilities right now. He slid his hands down the shirt, ripping it open instead, sending buttons flying across the blanket and the ground.
Sabrina laughed, then sucked in a breath as he spanned his greedy fingers across her narrow waist and moved across her warm, soft skin to the underside of her breasts. Perfection. No other woman had ever felt so right. He’d have ripped her bra off her if the hooks hadn’t been so strong. But he soon had it removed and the full glory of her rosy tipped breasts shined in the sun, demanding his attention.
“Mason, if we’re going to do this, shouldn’t I know your last name?”
“It’s better if you don’t.”
“I’m going to kiss you now. Everywhere.”
Her pupils dilated and her breath left her in a soft rush that had him tightening even more. They were suddenly a flurry of arms and legs and they both stripped out of their clothes. Mason quickly rolled the condom on, then covered her body with his. The feel of her sun-kissed skin was like coming home, so soft, so warm. He raised up on his forearms and slid lower, sucking one of her nipples into his mouth. She arched off the ground with a ragged moan, her legs moving restlessly beneath him.

She was so soft, so sweet, but it wasn’t enough. He wanted more, so much more. And he couldn’t wait another second. He slid down her body to the very center of her and dipped his tongue inside.

"Exit Strategy" by Lena Diaz.  This is the first in this series and WOW!  From the first page, I was on the edge of my seat!   Mason and Sabrina are our heroes in this one.  I liked both characters.  Mason, an EXIT Inc enforcer, questions his job for the first time when he meets Sabrina. He's a sexy, alpha male and is drawn to Sabrina.   Sabrina is a tough cookie - she's strong and independent but also vulnerable.  The two together are downright steamy!  I enjoyed the story line as well - being hunted and trying to survive - keeps anyone on edge.  As a first book of the series, Ms. Diaz is off to a fantastic start!  Ms. Diaz has written a story filled with action and suspense and, of course, love.  I found it to be well balanced - neither storyline got lost or was pushed back by the other.   This being the first I've read by the author, I look forward to the next book of the series and will gladly check out her other works too.  (received copy from Edelweiss for honest review)
