Cooper – HC Heroes Series, Book 5


Cooper Thompson, former Navy SEAL now security and protection agent, is trying his best to ignore the attraction to his buddy’s younger sister. But when he finds out she has put a kiss in the rain from him on her bucket list, he goes against his better judgment and grants her wish. Abby Sharp, hair stylist and salon owner, knows her brother and his pals have a strict code forbidding romances with family. However, she has always had a crush on Cooper and her feelings for him grow stronger every day. She is floored when he fulfills her bucket list wish and decides to take things to the next level. Cooper and Abby embark on a secret romance not knowing if it will end in happy ever after or a betrayed brother beat down. 

Secret crushes, sizzling chemistry, a hunky dangerous hero, and a beautiful can-do heroine can all be found in “Cooper” by Donna Michaels. Although the plot is predictable, the secret affair is a scorching, covert operation that needs to be kept hush-hush. Readers may experience a little exasperation about not knowing the full back stories about secondary characters used to drive the plot. Readers will be taken on a wild ride with two characters who cannot deny their forbidden attraction. The dramatic rush of danger including a plot twist delivers just the right amount of fast-paced action to bring readers to the edge of their seats. Ms. Michaels’ fifth installment of this heroic series reads well as a stand-alone novel filled with a bit of sorrow, some breath stealing love scenes, jolts of adrenaline, and the satisfaction of a story well told.
