HOT TARGET by April Hunt
Alpha Security #4
Release date: April 10, 2018
WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS . . .
How did a nice girl like Rachel Kline end up in a jail cell in Vegas? Don’t even ask. She came to Sin City to find her missing friend and accidentally got swept up in a police raid. Even worse, she’s being bailed out by the last man she wants to see right now: the irresistibly sexy, infuriatingly cocky Alpha op who rescued her a year ago. What are the odds?
Logan Callahan is six-and-a-half feet of solid muscle and Texas charm, a hard-fighting ex-Marine with a soft spot for Rachel. He’s more than obliged to hang up his cowboy hat and help her out. But when someone takes a shot at her, he knows there’s a good chance what happens in Vegas won’t stay there. With targets on their backs and killers on their tails, it’s one high-risk game they’re playing. And it’s not just their hearts that are on the line . . .

Hot Target is a fast paced read, and although it can be read as a standalone, I feel that it is best read in order in the series for the best experience.
Rachel’s backstory was introduced in prior books as her sister and the Alpha team rescued her from a horrible situation. Logan was there for her through the aftermath and her long road to recovery, and although he is interested in more with her, he understands she is still very skittish. When she finally gives in to the UST for one hit night, he thinks they are on the same page at long last until he wakes up to find her gone.
What Logan doesn’t know is that Rachel received a cryptic message from her terrified best friend Carly and she took off for Vegas to find out what is going on.
What happens in Vegas doesn’t stay there- it takes a quick detour straight into crazy town! With a police raid on a brothel that snags Rachel, flying bullets and snipers, wedding chapels with Elvis and Priscilla, a fantasy hotel hot tub complete with floating lily pads, and former military operators executing a rescue, there’s a lot packed into this novella but it was a lot of fun for me as a fan of the series. If you are a fan of romantic suspense and alpha males who are not alpha-holes, then you should check out the whole Alpha Security series!
