5 Star Review ~ WESTIN'S CHASE by Cristin Harber


Jared Westin knows his reputation and likes it. He gets the job done. No emotion. No baggage. That’s why his elite ops company, The Titan Group, is better than the best. They complete projects classified as mission impossible. 
And then, in walks a woman as tough as she is sexy. His counterpart in every way, should he choose to admit it.
Ousted undercover ATF agent Lily Chase only answers to “Sugar.” Jared is the only man who can see past her leather-and-lipstick demeanor, and that revelation is terrifying. She was fired for helping Titan on a questionable arrest she should’ve ignored, then partnered with Jared’s rival on an assignment in Afghanistan.
Distance and danger do nothing to change her feelings. When she’s left on the side of a mountain to die, an unexpected ally comes forward, and might open her heart.
Saving Sugar isn’t a normal rescue operation. It pits Titan against its rival, Jared against his nemesis. Chasing Sugar’s heart isn’t a simple task, either. She fights him, fights them, always ready to run. When she becomes a pawn in a game of collateral damage, Jared must risk his life to save her—the woman whose bravado and surprising sweetness has given him the one thing he never had. Love.


This book is part of a series but you don’t need to read any of the other books to follow along. This was a very entertaining book and by far one of the best that I have read. It is a romantic suspense but if there was a category for action romance, I would put it in that category because it was action packed.

Westin’s Chase is about Jared Westin and Lilly “Sugar” Chase. Jared is the leader of a Black Ops Organization named Titan that does covert missions for the United States Government. Sugar, a former ATF intelligence agent owns a weapons supply company called GUNS, and she supplies Titan with all of their weapons. When Titan returns from a seemingly successful rescue mission in Afghanistan, they learn that there was another person who was left behind that the government wasn’t aware of. That person was Sugar. Although there was chemistry between Jared and Sugar, they had never dated or anything. However, Jared moves heaven and earth to rescue Sugar and keep her safe.

The team soon finds out that rescuing Sugar was just the tip of the iceberg. Sugar had been set-up to take the fall for some shady dealings being done by Titan’s rival GSI. Consequently, Sugar’s life is constantly in danger. As Jared and Sugar spend more and more time together, they begin a steamy love affair that neither one of them is sure will last. The banter that they share is funny and shows how much they are meant to be together no matter how much they try to hide their true feelings. But don’t be confused, there is enough bloodshed and gunplay to compensate for the romance.

Of all the books that I have read in the past year, this is by far the best. It plays out like a good action/adventure movie. I hope that I can find more books like this one to read and I highly recommend it.
