I just love Pamela Clare! She has done it again.
First Strike was a HOT.EROTIC.STEAMY.SEXY.SENSUAL read!
In this prequel we fine out how Javier and Laura meet. They are both in Dubai. Laura is working as a reporter and Javier is on a short reprieve from being on duty as a Navy Seal. They meet under circumstances that leaves Laura all hot and bothered.
The two quickly settle on having a weekend of no-strings-attached, wild, crazy, passionate off the charts sex. And that is exactly what it is. Pamela Clare can certainly write some steamy sex scenes. :)
Things were bit tricky though. In Dubai there are rules/laws and Laura and Javier need to be discrete. They weren't able to be seen in public as a couple. They had to keep their hands and mouths to themselves which for them wasn't any easy task. This only intensifies their desire for each other. When they connect, be it against the wall, in the tub/shower or on the bed, things are explosive.
But as their weekend together is coming to an end both Javier and Laura are having feelings neither one are willing to admit too. They say their goodbyes and wish things could be different. Both secretly promising to reconnect.
The epilogue takes us two months later and something horrible happens to Laura. Javier vows revenge. And now I cannot wait to read Striking Distance! Only 5 more days!
