Review: Held Hostage (Sin City Uniforms #4) by Morticia Knight

Held Hostage (Sin City Uniforms, #4)
 Published June 5th 2015 by Totally Bound Publishing (Available for Early Download)
SWAT officer, Cole, can handle just about anything, until he rescues Brett—a man who makes him question all he’s ever believed about love.
As a member of the Las Vegas Police Department's SWAT team, Cole has seen his fair share of danger, but he's never taken a chance on love. He's willing to have some fun when the mood strikes him, but he's married to the job. Called in on a hostage situation, Cole is prepared for anything and everything…except for the brave and beautiful Brett.
Brett has been burned before, most recently by Officer Parker McLean. He's hoping to settle down in Vegas, perhaps find someone he can build a life with. The last thing Brett's looking for is another man in uniform. But when he meets Cole, there's an attraction that can't be denied. Still, he hadn’t expected to fall for the chiseled alpha.
What begins as nothing more than two people experiencing a great night together spirals into something far deeper. But will Brett be able to handle the stress that comes with having a lover who constantly puts his life in jeopardy? And can Cole risk his heart on an everyday hero, or will the job he knows so well remain his top priority?
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of mild BDSM.
Publisher's Note: This book is best read as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

My Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars

There are times when I just love insta-love plots, especially when written quite well and with reason. Remember Speed, where Keanu Reave's character fell in love with Sandra Bullock's in the midst of a stressful encounter with speed and a bomb? Well, this is what sorta happens between Brett and Parker. Their encounter was set in the midst of brains splattering across the hall after Parker kills off the hostage taker who was ready to blast to bits Brett whose back was turned to protect someone else.

Let's rewind. 

You see, this is a story that takes both men by surprise. They never expected to meet someone they would fall for. In fact, they did fall for each other but lustfully, not in-lovingly. They were physically attracted to each other. Period. The circumstances that drove them together was when Brett got held hostage in the store he managed and people died. This scenario sort of reminds me of what happened in Sydney a while back, but that was a chocolate place and this one is a fashion boutique. Fortunately, this one leaves with Brett alive and Parker saved him and the day.

Now how fast was this read? Well, it is a very light, fun, erotic and **ahem** kind of read it took just two hours. Well, I had to do some housework in between. At the end? I smiled and dreamed. So if you want to sit down and relax and think of a good waxing? This is it.
