Review - ICE by Hilary Storm and Kathy Coopmans

Title: ICE
Series: Elite Forces #1
Author: Hilary Storm and Kathy Coopmans
Release Date: March 8, 2016

Warning- This book contains explicit language and graphic sexual content.

Captain Jade Elliott of the United States Army spent her entire career working her ass off to get to this point and she couldn't be more proud. She's gained notoriety through her actions as well as the respect of her team. She's one of the first women to graduate as a Ranger and has been called to serve on a secret mission. So why is she about to do something that could throw that all away?

Kaleb Maverick has been called to act as Commander for a vital mission and has done his research. He knows his team very well, in fact he hand selected them. He's retired, but still very active in the private sector, leading his personal team to countless successful missions. Now he's going back for one last mission. 

What happens when his mission is to get the girl? What if she's not ready to be captured? Their chemistry is explosive and the heat is intense, but can Maverick come back with his head held high or will she be the first mission he fails? 

When reading a book, there are few things I enjoy more than a ridiculously strong female lead character. And, HOLY HELL, does Captain Jade Elliott fit the bill. Female Army Ranger? Doesn’t get much stronger than that! She’s tough, powerful and brave, yet feminine and sexy. She’s all woman, living and working in a man’s world. A world she’s thinking about leaving behind all for a hot, sexy, dirty talking man—one Kaleb Maverick.

Kaleb is a natural leader—he’s hand-picked the team he wants and needs to ensure the success of a vital mission. One of the team members is Jade, a woman Kaleb wants both for the mission and in his bed. He has it bad for Jade, and he's not worried about the success of the mission for the safety of the world. No, the mission he worries about is capturing Jade’s heart. Will he be successful, or will it be his first failure?

Whoa. Strong woman with equally strong, dominant man? Let’s talk about the chemistry and smokin’ hot sexiness between Kaleb and Jade. I had to put down my Kindle quite a few times because it was burning my fingers! LOL. They truly are Fire and Ice. 

I loved all of Kaleb and Jade’s interactions—their banter, behavior, sexy times. They're so great together and really need to figure their relationship out, but it will take the next book to do that because ICE ends in a cliffhanger. Damn it! When is Fire coming out??
