Series: SWAT Generation 2.0 #5

Ares saw him for the first time at a Kilgore Police Department benefit dinner. She’d gone with her dad as his plus one. Hayes Greer had gone by himself and brooded silently across the same table as her, drinking whiskey and not saying a word.
It only took that one time for her to become interested.
The next time she saw him, he was doing another benefit—but this one requiring a whole lot fewer clothes. And that was when she knew. She wanted him. Badly. But the morose Hayes was too busy thinking about his sins to see what was right in front of his face—Ares.
Hayes Greer knew the moment that he saw the feisty Ares Downy again that he should’ve stayed away. Maybe if he hadn’t done the stupid calendar, he wouldn’t be questioning every single woman’s intentions.
Maybe if he’d listened to that niggling feeling telling him to stay away, he would’ve been able to do his job a little better. But seeing her with a knife to her throat, in the middle of a building set to blow, made his usually well-wired brain start to malfunction.
Because nobody was allowed to touch her like that—only him. Nobody was allowed to scare her, either. Not and live to tell the tale.

Hayes was one of the guys that I really wanted to know more about. He is a new character in that he isn’t really related to any of the previous main characters in other books. Unlike Ares who is Downy and Memphis’ daughter. Hayes has this beautifully broken quality to him. He is someone who has seen and experience far too much pain. Yet, there is a strength that can only come from those experiences.

Ares sees the good in everyone but not to a fault. She has no problem seeing when there is no good in someone. She cares deeply and while that could be a fault I think it is perfect for her. She’s a guidance counselor at the high school so her caring nature helps in her career.

A lot happens in this book! We learn more about the serial killer murders from the last book. That was something I looked forward to since we know that Ashe got Hayes interested in them. We also learn more about Hayes past and what happened to him. It is something else that I wanted to know.

Hayes and Ares together were more than just hot! They melted the pages of my kindle. Ares takes Hayes’ issues and deals with them in a way that blew his mind. There was no denying her feelings after that and while there are some moments that had me weeping this book left my heart pounding.
