About the book:

Special Forces soldier, Haze Welch, is military born and raised. Serving the country is what the Welch men do, and all Haze has ever wanted.
But during a 18-month tour overseas, his world shatters in an instant. Haze gets injured and is not able to return to active duty.
Unable to face the thought of spending the rest of his life behind a desk, he accepts a job offer as a personal bodyguard in Los Angeles for the flighty heiress Leighton Machus.

After all, one spoiled little girl would be a piece of cake compared to everything else I’ve been through, right?

Little does Haze Welch know, he’s about to get a rude awakening.

Don’t miss HERO: The Assignment, MS Parker’s first military romance.


The Assignment by M.S. Parker is the first book in the Hero: Special Forces Romance series. Unlike the majority of romance series this one does not change characters throughout but continues the story of the original couple along with cliffhangers leading from book to book so they do need to be read in order.

Special Forces soldier, Haze Welch  is the lead of this series. Haze has known nothing but serving his country and had no plans to leave the military but when he is injured saving a fellow soldier Haze finds he cannot return to duty. The soldier Haze saved is a member of a wealthy family and to honor Haze for his service his grandfather hires him for personal security for his granddaughter, Leighton.

Now I have much respect for our military so I was hoping that in exchange for this particular soldier’s sacrifices he would find love with an amazing woman…wrong. Leighton is the reason this is a two star read for me as she is a spoiled, self-centered, brat of a socialite that was only concerned with her partying. Annoying. So needless to say I wasn’t a fan of this one not liking half the couple in question so cliffhanger or not I will pass on the rest of the story.
