Jerk.A grenade always teetering on the edge.
He’s also hot as sin and makes my toes curl.I hate that I dream about him.Kissing me, holding me.He has dreams as well.Nightmares that only I can tame.
I know all about guys like Cullen Hunt.I’m smart enough to stay away.
Amazon top-hundred author Alex Lidell delivers a page-turning enemy-to-lovers stand-alone romance, with a spunky heroine, a powerful Navy SEAL, and heart-wrenching PTSD that only love can heal.Enemy Zone is the first book of the Trident Rescue Series, which follows a group of Navy SEALs who return home to Denton Valley, Colorado, and start a search and rescue team called Trident Rescue. The books can be read in any order.
Enemy Zone is the first book in the contemporary romance Trident Rescue series by author Alex Lidell. I have read several of Alex’s paranormal and fantasy series, but this is the first time I am reading a contemporary series by her, and I have to say Enemy Zone was just as magically as her fantasy series! I completely loved this book! It is my favorite contemporary romance read of the year! (even though it doesn’t release until 2021) I loved everything about this book- I loved the characters, I loved their chemistry and romance and I loved the Trident Rescue guys. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I am super bummed that I will probably have to wait a good long while because Enemy Zone does not even release until January 2021.
In Enemy Zone we meet our main characters, Cullen and Skylar. The book is told in dual narrative between the two of them and I loved this narration style because it was so much fun to dive into each of their heads. Cullen and his 3 friends have all served in the military and came back home after service to start up various businesses in the town of Denton Valley. I think at least one of them comes from family money of some kind to start bank rolling these businesses but they are all loaded and they basically own a large portion of the town. Trident Rescue is a private EMT team, headed up by the four guys in their spare time. In Enemy Rescue we see Cullen on the scene of a car accident when a new reporter from the town gossip publication comes up to ask questions. Skylar and Cullen are basically hate at first sight. I loved watching the two of them go toe to toe over everything and anything. They are one feisty pair!
When Skylar finds herself as the new dispatch at Trident Rescue to earn some extra money while she is chasing her dream of becoming a journalist, things in this book really picked up. Skylar’s past is a large part of the plot of this book, and I don’t want to spoil anything but this is first and foremost a romance novel and the romance was perfect! It was quick witted, full of banter and super sexy! I loved every second of this book, and I am already itching to get my hands on book two in the Trident Rescue series!
