Summary

She’s damaged. He's ruthless. Together, they're combustible....

Brooke Sullivan’s carefully ordered existence is spiraling out of control. Two years ago, she was violently abducted by a terrorist group and nearly killed. She’s worked hard to get her life back on track—moving to a new house, changing careers, going on a couple of dates. When she witnesses a murder, she’s plunged into a new nightmare. And as the past threatens to repeat itself, she’s not sure she’ll survive this time.  

Cade “Saint” Rodgers never forgot the beautiful girl he talked to at the wedding of his commanding officer. Now she’s in trouble, and he’s the one tasked with protecting her. Brooke is terrified of men like him—a black-ops soldier for whom violence is a way of life—which makes falling for her a terrible idea. But that won’t stop Cade from using every sensual trick he’s got to make her believe anything is possible if only she wants it badly enough.  

As danger draws closer, it’ll take all Cade’s strength—and all Brooke’s determination—to learn how to let go of the past and trust each other. But it might not be enough. To keep her safe, he may have to let her go forever.... 

Start listening to the Hostile Operations Team Series—Strike Team 2 today and enjoy an action-packed, seriously romantic, and steamy-good-fun military romantic suspense. Each book can be listened to as a stand-alone. No cliff-hangers or cheating and a guaranteed happily-ever-after ending!

A great series!

This is another fantastic audiobook in the HOT series and the reason why Lynn Raye Harris is a favourite author of mine. She never fails to deliver a story with a perfect mix of action, suspense and romance and I always fall a little bit in love with her characters! HOT Angel is Cade (aka Saint), sexy leader of the Echo Squad, and Brooke's story - Brooke was first introduced in HOT Ice when she was kidnapped because of her friendship with Grace. Cade and Brooke first met at Medez's wedding and when I found out they were the next HOT couple, I was a very happy book nerd! When they see each other again at a HOT gathering, Cade realises Brooke is still struggling to deal with the trauma of her abduction and although they have a sizzling chemistry neither of them can deny, he will have to take things very slowly with her. When Brooke witnesses something she shouldn't and she finds herself in danger once again, she turns to Cade for help, and he will stop at nothing to protect her.

I love how the relationship between Cade and Brooke develops, from the flirty texts, the hot sex, to the heart warming romance - they have to be one of my favourite couples from the series so far. Cade is so supportive of Brooke and he is exactly the kind of man she needs, and Brooke is perfect woman for Cade. Unsurprisingly, once I started HOT Angel I didn't want to put it down, it had me gripped me from the start. With all the suspense and romance from Cade and Brooke, plus a catch up with some of the characters from the HOT family from previous books that Lynn Raye Harris always treats us to, how could I not give HOT Angel 5 stars?!

Suspenseful story

Another amazing story! It’s suspenseful and will hook you from beginning to end. I loved the characters, the banter and flying sparks. I enjoyed reading Brooke’s and Cade journey as Cade helps Brooke heal. It’s an entertaining and enjoyable story and a great addition to the series!

Each HOT Story is both Unique and "Coming Home"!!

Our focus in this splendid HOT story is Brooke (with an ‘e’) and Cade Rodgers (with a “d”). Brook is best friends with Grace who is married to HOT team member Garrett. When Brooke joins their get togethers she attracts the attention of HOT team member Cade (aka Saint). Brooke was kidnapped two years ago, and still has not recovered – she is still fearful, and big men especially are hard for her to deal with. Cade figures this out and starts a text conversation, which grows into “sexting”.

When danger strikes close to Brooke, it is Cade she calls for assistance. Being in-person is so much more intense, but this may also be the opportunity to break through her barriers. Danger, intrigue, and a delightful possibility of romance with some quips thrown in, make for an exciting and entertaining read.

I’ve been pleased with every story in this series – this is no exception!

Suspenseful Romance

Another exciting, suspenseful romance in the HOT series. Cade & Brookes story was a roller coaster of emotions. Lynn Raye Harris delivered another story with the perfect mix of action, suspense, and romance.

Adored this story!!!

The Hostile Operations Team books and their spinoff series with the SEALS remain my favorite books from Lynn Raye Harris. These books are like crack to me and I have to devour each one as soon as it hits my kindle. HOT Angel pulled me in from the very first page!

Brooke Sullivan is still recovering from being abducted and held hostage over a year ago. She has moved into a condo and gotten a great dog, Max, but really hasn't dated anyone she was really interested in since she got home. She has only really dated one guy who she isn't attracted to that makes her feel safe.

Brooke is attracted to Cade "Saint" Rodgers, and he doesn't make her feel safe in the least. She is insanely attracted to him and while she feels safe enough to engage in texting conversations, Cade is such a big man she is a bit intimidating to Brooke in the beginning. I honestly loved they started their relationship via texting. Cade knew Brooke was extra special and he wanted her in his life, and I loved he let her set the pace of how they moved along. I honestly felt like they connected so well and so fast because Brooke had that initial distance of text only that she started to trust Cade way faster than she would have based upon his career and all she had been through with her kidnapping.

When Brooke's neighbor Scott is murdered, Brooke is the only person who might have seen the killer leaving their floor. Scott was completely fixated on Brooke and totally believed there was more to their relationship than Brooke saw. I loved that when Brooke realized she needed someone, her first thought was Cade rather than her best friend Grace. I felt like this was really when Brooke and Cade's relationship started moving into more of a couple than friends only.

I loved Brooke and Cade as a couple. They had amazing chemistry together, but it was when Brooke opened up and shared everything that had gone on when she was abducted that I knew they would make it as a couple. I absolutely loved Cade and Brooke as a couple. While she didn't love Cade's job, she totally accepted how necessary it was and how great he was at it. I knew at some point Cade would have to protect Brooke once her neighbor was murdered, and I honestly fell in love with the HOT guys all over again as they worked together to rescue Brooke from the bad guys.

HOT Angel is absolutely another winner in the Hostile Operations Team series. Lynn Raye Harris once again gives her readers a sexy romance with action that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.

HOT Angel was intense when I read the book, and even more so when I listened to Callie Dalton & Gregory Salinas. Ms. Harris continues to pick the best narrators for each of her stories. Both Ms. Dalton and Mr. Salinas kept me in the story and on the edge of my seat as I listened to Brooke and Cade's story. I know the fact that these books are some of my favorites ever, might make me love the audiobooks so very much. That being said, even with books I love, if the narrators take me out of the story, it messes up the book. Both narrators were absolute rock stars with this book, and I highly recommend both to audiobook listeners.

Cade is H.O.T. Hot hot hot!

I love how Cade is so patient and sincere with Brooke (with and E) as she deals with her past trauma. I enjoyed their story but Cade was by far my favorite of the couple. Insert eggplant emoji :) I really liked the narrators but especially Gregory Salinas. His voice was perfect for Cade. I can’t wait for Hacker’s book. I’m so intrigued!

*** 4.5 star listen ***

How can you NOT love Cade "Saint" Rodgers, with a D? The guy literally lives up to his handle. He is patient and understanding. Brooke Sullivan, with an E, brought home the fact that it really does take time to heal all wounds. It's been two years since she was kidnapped and held and she still has issues that aren't resolved.

There were a couple of things that bothered me about this story, preventing a five star rating.
1. Brooke seemed to get over her lingering issues way to fast once she and Cade came face to face and he rescued her from the hospital.
2. HOT went off on a mission without any authorization. Don't they have to justify this mission to someone?
3. Why did Delta team recover the weapons and not the DEA or ATF who were supposedly investigating?

With that being said, I did enjoy the story. I'm curious if we ever find out what happens with the security guard and if his daughter recovers or if it takes time for her to work through everything. Maybe she could be a love interest, or female HOT member, for HOT, the Next Generation. It was good to see Echo squad getting their books. I'm looking forward to more from these team members.

I am fond of listening to Gregory Salinas. He brings a maturity and emotion to his characters. Callie Dalton is a pleasure to listen to but I felt her voice was a little too young for this character. But all in all a good narration.

Hot Angel

Cade and Brooke have met before, when she was kidnapped. Their chemistry is of the charts.

An incident occurred to her neighbor she witnessed and now she has a target on her back.
Cade helps her through this and she feels safe with him. Eventually all works out, but to
knows what happens, you will have to read the book.

Great Job Lynn Rae Harris !!!

I rated 5 stars for overall performance and story

Loved it

What a story! Cade is definitely a Saint. He is a balance of patience and action. I enjoyed how fast paced this story is. The narrators are so good. They pull you into the story and keep you suspended on the edge of your seat!

Amazing action filled story!

What a great action filled romantic story! I loved meeting Brooke and Cade (with a D). He is so patient and protective while she is nervous and cautious but willing to open up. I enjoyed watching them get together. I did listen to this on audio. Gregory Salinas and Callie Dalton both did a wonderful job portraying their characters. I look forward to the next in the series. I love the techies!

Saints & Angels

Hot Angel is the first book for Strike Team 2 by Lynn Raye Harris. If you haven't read/listened to the books for Strike Team 1 (9 books), HOT SEAL Team (8 books) or Blacks Bandits (7 books), I recommend those as well. It's not critical to read them first, but Strike Team 1 and HOT SEAL team do precede these. Part of the reason I love Lynn Raye Harris and her books is that they're all intertwined in some way. It's so fun to have old characters pop up in each of the new books. You never know who will help with the newest mission.
This series starts with immediate ties to Strike Team 1 and our heroine, Brooke, who is the best friend of Grace (Strike Team 1 Book 7: HOT Ice (Garrett & Grace). In HOT Ice, Brook was kidnapped and is still dealing with PTSD because of it. Due to that, she's very nervous around people, especially military men like Cade (call name: Saint). But they click and he eases her into conversation, ok with chatting via text even when they're in the same house. This leads to a good friendship and trust. So when Brooke accidentally witnesses the aftermath of murder and is in immediate danger, she calls Cade. From there, she's under his protection and that of the full HOT team. Additionally, Grace and Garrett are majorly overprotective of Brooke with residual guilt over her kidnapping. The book proceeds with the normal action-packed solving of their problems - including twists and turns and anxiety.

What I loved:
❤ The slow build, natural relationship between Cade and Brooke. They don't jump into insta-love. They develop a solid friendship first. This makes their interactions really authentic.
❤ Characters from past books making appearances. Garrett and Grace are most predominant, of course.

What I didn't love:
😐 The heroine's ditzy moment that puts her in danger late in the book. She was a strong, independent, yet vulnerable woman the entire book. Then she falls for an easily spotted trick.

🎯Overall: Another direct target hit for Lynn Raye Harris. The book is fast-paced and easy to get lost in. I couldn't stop listening. If you like her other books, you'll love this one!
