Model Soldier - Cat Johnson Title: Model Soldier

Series: Red, Hot and Blue bk 8

Author: Cat Johnson

Genre: Contemporary

When love presents itself, take your shot.

When Emily Price is assigned to an ad campaign featuring one of Uncle Sam’s finest soldiers, she’s thrilled. Who better to break up the monotonous parade of smooth, perfect models than a rough, war-hardened alpha male?

Maybe she’ll even get lucky like one of her colleagues and find romance. Unfortunately, when she meets her model, he’s more caveman than Prince Charming. Now her dreams of love—and her career—are dangling precariously from his callused fingertips.

Staff Sergeant David Hawk Hawkins never imagined refusing a command…until he loses a bet and is ordered off the battlefield and into a new role: poster boy for the Army’s recruiting campaign.

From the start, their relationship is more fire-and-ice than fairytale. Yet beneath their sparring simmers an attraction that finally explodes into a night of lovemaking that, after they part, haunts them to opposite sides of the globe.

But love isn’t through with them—and neither is the public. The campaign is a hit and Hawk becomes a star. Soon he and Emily are thrown together again, but this time it’s on Hawk’s turf, where flying bullets could settle their battle before it begins.

Product Warnings

Contains sex hot enough to travel halfway around the world, and a love strong enough to bring them back home again.

Helen has been telling me for a long time I need to read Cat Johnson, so when this book was sent to us I took the plunge and boy oh boy can I say that I’m hooked on this series and now I need to go back and read the other books in the series.
When Hawk loses a bet and has to play model for
After seeing her boss in her blissful happily ever after with her Special Ops boyfriend, Emily Price is excited for more then one reason when she is offered the chance to run an ad campaign for the Army and have close contact with Staff Sergeant David “Hawk” Hawkins, who will be the model. However, Hawk is reluctant, extremely reluctant and only does it as he has lost a bet. What he doesn’t count on is the draw he feels to Emily, but with him being posted to Afghanistan as soon as the photo shoots are over, is there enough between them to last a separation?

Girl next door type meets sexy, gruff modern day warrior…I was hoping to love this book, unfortunately it didn’t quite do it for me. The romance in this didn’t spark enough for me, I didn’t catch the instant attraction vibe they seemed to have to one another and I definitely had trouble believing that their relationship went any deeper than sex. I know that all sounds very negative, but I did like both the main characters, Emily and Hawk were really likable and there was some great banter between them, I just couldn’t invest in their romance.

I love this series
