Publisher's Summary

She nearly ruined his life. Now she needs him to save hers.

Computer hacker Bliss Bennett accepted a simple job: access confidential files and turn them over to the CIA. But something went wrong. Now, she has a target on her back. And the only man who can save her wouldn’t give her a glass of water if she was dying of thirst. Not that she blames him.

But she has to try.

Sky Kelley isn’t the same man who fell in love with the bewitching genius whose lies nearly cost him his military career. These days he’s a badass commando with lethal moves to match his mad hacking skills. And he’s not inclined to do Bliss any favors.

But Sky isn’t wired to turn away anyone in distress. He’ll do what it takes to protect her, but he won’t get emotionally involved. Not ever again.

Except truth has a way of revealing itself, especially when a deadly enemy sets his sights on Bliss....

Start listening to the Hostile Operations Team Series—Strike Team 2 today and enjoy an action-packed, seriously romantic, and steamy-good-fun military romantic suspense. Each book can be listened to as a stand-alone. No cliff-hangers or cheating and a guaranteed happily-ever-after ending!

Love this second chance story

Hacker and Bliss's whirlwind story was great. The story basically started out the gate with action and suspense, keeping you on your toes. Bliss and Sky have "history" that isn't really history and as danger mounts they find their way back to each other. And some of those lines...sigh...well Hacker knows how to use his words :) And awesome narration from Raven and Gregory, helping to truly bring the story to life.

*** 4.5 Stars ***

Yet another exciting HOT book filled with adventure, mystery, mayhem, distrust and, of course, love.

Sky and Bliss are "bitter" exes. There are hard feelings between them after their divorce. But when Bliss needs help, she turns to Sky.

Both are hackers, but in different areas. If you are not a computer person, some of this story may be a little boring and repetitive while they are all trying to figure out the program. And yes folks, it really does take that number of people working nonstop if the program is complicated. But the adventure is, well, an adventure.

My only issue with this book was some of the graphic nature towards the end. It may not bother some, but it bothered me. That's a personal issue for me and not everyone shares it. Give it a chance and make your own choice.

I really enjoyed seeing Samantha in this book. It's been awhile since we've seen her. And having Kid cross over and help was good too and telling Sky about what he and Olivia went through. It allowed me to reminisce back to one of the early HOT books. It's always fun to see characters you haven't seen awhile and that is what we get here. And I hope to see Frances again in future books. She is a total sweetheart.

Overall a good read full of adventure. Enjoy the ride.

I have since listened to the audiobook. Raven Rose is a new to me narrator. I thought she handled Bliss quite well. She is definitely someone I would listen to again. Gregory Salinas, as always, was impeccable as Sky. He just has the right voice to handle the alpha male HOT operator.

Fantastic edge-of-our seat romantic suspense!!!

HOT Secrets is the newest installment in the wonderful Hostile Operations Team series from Lynn Raye Harris. Just went I think the series can't be any more wonderful, we get an new story focusing on another team member. HOT Secrets is Sky "Hacker" Kelly's story and it was non-stop from the very first page.

Sky "Hacker" Kelly is a computer hacker just like his nickname suggests only so much more being Special Ops. He not only has badass computer skills, but has lethal protection skills. The only time in his life since he joined the Army has his life been up in the air was when he was married to his ex-wife Bliss Bennett, another hacker who is for hire to the highest bidder, which now is the CIA. When things go amiss with her current job, Sky is the first person Bliss thinks of to help her out.

I have to say the more I learned about Bliss and Sky's history, the more surprised I was that Sky actually helped her out at all. They both had some major baggage from their time together 4 years ago, and I liked they both had to work through everything at their own pace. I absolutely loved their banter and chemistry from the moment they saw each other again. OMG I know the situation was super intense, but they made me laugh so much as they picked at each other. I could actually feel how much they both still cared for one another and wanted one another the more time they were together. Smoking hot sex was never far away with the chemistry between these two. Seriously I was surprised they held off as long as they were able to honestly.

I loved we got to see so many of my favorite Hostile Operations Team members for past books in HOT Secrets, but especially Mendez. His leadership to these men and women just add so much to every single story. I love he saw something in Bliss she didn't know she had in herself and knew she would be an asset to H.O.T. I have to say I was somewhat surprised by the CIA contact for Bliss, but not completely. I won't lie, when they met up, I didn't want her anywhere near him as I had a weird feeling about how he was acting. I was so glad she had Sky and so many other team members there to protect her, even as I knew something was going to happen. While I hated what they all went through, I loved that Sky figured out how much Bliss meant to him.

HOT Secrets was such an amazing sexy and fast-pace story. Lynn Raye Harris once again delivered another winner in her Hostile Operations Team series. I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who loves fast-paced, sexy romantic suspense stories.

HOT Secrets is one of my favorite books in any of the Hostile Operations Team series, so I had high expectations for the audiobook. Both Gregory Salinas and Raven Rose were absolutely amazing as they brought the story to life. I was never pulled out of the story as the narration switched between narrators or supporting characters. I was once again kept on the edge of my seat as I listened to this story, and absolutely couldn't stop listening once I started this book!

Hacker and Briar Rose

If you love military hotness and kickass women, Lynn Raye Harris HOT series is a must read! As a geek myself, I absolutely loved the story of Hacker (Sky) and Briar Rose (Bliss). Sometimes there are 2nd chances and forgiveness when understanding is possible.

In typical Lynn Raye Harris style, this book is filled with twists and turns, making it an incredible ride. Gregory Salinas and Raven Rose do a wonderful job of bringing the book to life.

Highly recommend the whole series!

Great second chance romance story

Sky and Bliss's second chance romance story is action packed! These two had a rocky end to their marriage, but when Bliss is in danger there is no one she trusts except for Sky. This is an action packed second chance romance that will have you falling in love with this band of brothers all over again. The story moves quickly and is action packed. Great story in this great series!

The narrators did a great job bringing this story to life.

So Good

Wow, Bliss & Sky's story is full of ALL the good stuff. I couldn't finish this one fast enough. Absolutely love the twist to this story. It is so unexpected, which makes it even better. I don't tend to be a fan of redemption stories, but this is a really good one. Looking forward to the next book!

Strike team 2 is back!

Hacker and Bliss have a history for sure. I really enjoyed the suspense in this book. I liked that we were able to understand fully the hurt that Sky felt from their divorce. I really was on Bliss' side of their history, but after hearing why he hurt it made me understand the depth of his character. I thought that Greogory Salinas once again did a great job narrating and I enjoyed having two narrators. I'm glad that we get to catch up with members of HOT team 1 as we fall in love with the new guys.

Secret ex-wife and HOT operator

HOT Secrets is book #2 for Strike Team 2 by Lynn Raye Harris. I always recommend that you read/listen to the books for Strike Team 1 (9 books), HOT SEAL Team (8 books) and Blacks Bandits (7 books) as well. The only one necessary before this is HOT Angel, strike team 2 book #1. HOT Secrets is a second chance romance, which is hit or miss with me. It is not always my favorite plot, but if done right it can be awesome. This book features Sky of the HOT team and his ex-wife, Bliss. The HOT team was not aware of Bliss or that Sky was married until she storms back into his life. The premise of the story is interesting, with Bliss being a world-class hacker and in danger after a job with the CIA. The job goes awry, obviously and the only person Bliss believes can help her is Sky. Their banter and relationship are witty and fun. Sky and his team help unravel what happened with the job and why Bliss is in danger.
What I loved:
❤ The way Sky and Bliss play off of each other and banter.
❤ Characters from past books making appearances (always my favorite in LRH novels).

What I didn't love:
😐 The couple’s marriage ended because neither listened to one another and made their own conclusions. That’s my least favorite scenario in second chance (or any) romances. It’s so frustrating when the “problem” can be taken care of in a 2 minute conversation.

🎯Overall: Another fun listen from Lynn Raye Harris. The book is fast-paced and an easy listen. Fans of HOT will love it.

Fast paced world wind storyline

Ms Harris does it again with her fast paced, steamy military romance novels.

This was Sky Kelly and Bliss Bennett's story.

Bliss shows up on Sky's doorstep out of the blue, asking for his help. Reluctant to do so, as she'd deeply hurt and betrayed him years ago, but he could never refuse someone who claimed to be in trouble.

As Sky looked into the story Bliss was telling him, Sky realized he needed the help of his team. So dive into this next HOT novel and enjoy where it takes you. It's another world wind of adventure and romance.

I received an audio copy of this book from the author and leave this review voluntarily.

Great!

A second chance romance with edge of your seat suspense. The romantic scenes were a mix of tenderness and heat. The action and suspense were dramatic and riveting. I really loved the whole team and Wolf's story also sounds to be as equally exciting. The narration was very good although in general terms I prefer when the male/female narrators only speak for the male/female characters instead of taking turns to narrate chapters.
I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.

Great series!

HOT Secrets is my new favourite HOT audiobook and Sky and Bliss my new favourite couple!! I absolutely devoured this audiobook, it was awesome..
Sky and Bliss were married four years ago but she destroyed him and their marriage by hiding that she was working undercover, investigating his boss.
When Bliss's latest job leaves her in danger, she turns to Sky for help as he is the only one she can trust. The chemistry between the two is scorching and they clearly still have feelings for each other. But with so many secrets and past hurts, the road to their HEA is not a smooth one. I love Sky and Bliss's journey, they are a perfect couple but also fantastic characters in their own right.
As well as the romance, HOT Secrets has plenty of action and suspense and I was kept guessing until the end. I don't know how Lynn Raye Harris continues to write such amazing HOT stories but I'm so glad she does! I can't wait for the next one!!

Excellent

What a fantastic storyline. These characters are amazing. I was gripped from the very beginning. This team is great and the narrators have given them so much personality.
