About the book:

From #1 bestselling author Lora Leigh comes Collision Point, part of the thrilling Brute Force series—packed with powerful men, steely women, and explosive passion.

SHE’S NOTHING BUT TROUBLE
Riordan Malone is more than a bodyguard. As an Elite Ops agent, he’s ripped, raged, and ready to rumble—a true warrior, inside and out. But no war zone can compare to the battle in Rory’s heart when he lays eyes on the only woman he’s ever loved—and thought he had lost forever. . .

HE’S EVERYTHING SHE NEEDS 
As the daughter of a crime lord, Amara Resnova has endured the cruelty of her father’s enemies—and has tried to escape that world ever since. Now, she must reach out to the one man who saved her life, even if she’s never forgiven him for breaking her heart. But Amara is tougher today than she was then. She’s also more desirable to Rory—and dangerous to love. Can he protect her from her father’s enemies without surrendering to his own passions…or will love seal their fate for good?

Collision Point by Lora Leigh is the first book in the new Brute Force romantic suspense series. However, even though Collision Point is opening up a new series it is a spin off from Lora Leigh’s Elite Ops series so the characters have carried over from there.

In this first book Amara Resnova seeks out Riordan Malone after having dreams of him and believing they may have a shared past. Amara had lost her memory of their time together and her father has done everything to keep Riordan away.

Now when picking this first book up I hadn’t realized that it was part of a previous series and the couple had been around before. Starting off the story is a bit confusing for me until realizing there was that something missing there from jumping into the book.

But the biggest reason this book really wasn’t for me at all was the fact that it seemed more like erotica mixed with bits of action than a romantic suspense. Basically the story was jump on each other and make out every other page to where the “story” was so buried it’s almost forgotten. I’d just much prefer a good compelling plot with a few steamy moments than the opposite of only having a few moments of plot which is how this felt so in the end this one was just not my cup of tea.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

About the author:

Lora Leigh lives in the rolling hills of Kentucky, often found absorbing the ambience of this peaceful setting. She dreams in bright, vivid images of the characters intent on taking over her writing life, and fights a constant battle to put them on the hard drive of her computer before they can disappear as fast as they appeared.

Lora’s family, and her writing life co-exist, if not in harmony, in relative peace with each other. Surrounded by a menagerie of pets, friends, and a teenage son who keeps her quick wit engaged, Lora’s life is filled with joys, aided by her fans whose hearts remind her daily why she writes.

    • Apparently so… oh well, it was worth a shot. Once I quit being confused about what I was dropped in on it just felt like a couple of worked up teens pawing at one another though then of course goes further from there so not a fave unfortunately.
