Easy Target (Elite Ops #3) by Kay Thomas - Blog Tour, Excerpt, Review & Giveaway

Easy Target
Elite Ops #3
By: Kay Thomas
Releasing June 9th, 2015
Avon Impulse

AEGIS: an elite team of ex-military men who will do anything for their country…and their women.

Fighting to clear her brother of murder, freelance reporter Sassy Smith is suddenly kidnapped and thrown into a truck with other women who are about to be sold…or worse. When she sees an opportunity for escape Sassy takes it, but she may have just jumped from the frying pan into the fire.

Former Marine Bryan Fisher (aka Hollywood) is no stranger to dangerous situations, or to his best friend’s little sister. When he rescues Sassy, Bryan is determined to keep her safe…if he can keep his hands off of her. Because Sassy is all grown up and not at all like the girl he used to know. But he’s got bigger problems. And with enemies coming at them from every corner, Bryan and Sassy will need to work together if they’re going to survive.

Sassy sighed against him and tilted her head up. He looked into her midnight-blue eyes and saw a vulnerability there that had been shadowed before with all the sexual bravado she’d been throwing his way since last summer.
Still, Bryan hesitated.
She looped her hands behind his neck and pushed his head down toward her. She smelled … different than he remembered. Her scent, which normally had him so mixed up, had been washed away with the shower. She kissed him, carefully moving her mouth against his, and he froze.
He was kissing Trey’s sister. She moved her hand down his back and pressed closer against him. Her breasts were soft against the firm wall of his chest.
Her tongue was in his mouth and he stopped thinking—about everything, about Trey, about why they shouldn’t be doing this, about where they were. His hands were in her robe and he moved them up her sides along her ribcage. She moaned into his mouth as her palms slid to his waistband. The robe slipped from her shoulders, catching at her elbows.
He looked down. Her breasts were the perfect size, with nipples a dusty rose that had pebbled with the cool temperature of the air conditioning. Her waist and hips were covered with the white terry cloth, but he caught a glimpse of blonde curls between her legs. His cock throbbed against the back of his zipper.
He gently tugged the robe from her arms and she slid one of her hands under his shirt, brushing one of her fingertips across his stomach along the way to his belt buckle. He kissed the side of her neck, then pulled back to slip his T-shirt off.
The gray cotton tee fluttered to the floor. The feel of her satiny bare skin pressing into his chest had him almost coming right there, but he took a deep breath, swallowed hard, and put his hands on her waist. His fingers rested on either side of her hips, and he moved his thumbs down across her belly lower and lower, finally lifting her up so that she could swing her leg over his lap to straddle him.
Her robe puddled over his hands, leaving her completely exposed. When he touched the top of her pubic bone with his fingertips, she startled, and her eyes focused on his for the first time since she’d kissed him. But the expression there was completely different from what he’d been expecting.
Instead of being in the throes of passion, she looked … scared? He pulled back and was about to ask her what was going on when there was a brisk knock at the door.

“Room service.”

Bryan and Sassy's story picks up where Personal Target left off, so I would highly recommend reading the series in order. Non-stop action and secrets revealed will keep you hooked until the very end, where an unexpected surprise awaits you in the epilogue. I can't wait for to see how the story unfolds in the next book!

Kay Thomas didn't grow up burning to be a writer. She wasn't even much of a reader until fourth grade. That's when her sister read The Black Stallion aloud to her. For hours Kay was enthralled—shipwrecked and riding an untamed horse across desert sand. Then tragedy struck. Her sister lost her voice. But Kay couldn't wait to hear what happened in the story—so she picked up that book, finished reading it herself, and went in search of more adventures at the local library.

Today Kay lives in Dallas with her husband, two children, and a shockingly spoiled Boston terrier. Her award-winning novels have been published internationally.
