Outside of Titan Group, there are few people that Roman Hart would die for. He's a soldier, a protector, and he's haunted that one of the people he should've been able to protect didn't let him. That was years ago, and now a hardened heart and a cocky attitude are his impenetrable shields, until one woman-one challenge-drives him to distraction.
On the outside, Beth Tourne has it all. Luxury car, gorgeous condo, and a job partying with the rich and famous. It's a plush CIA cover, but she wants more. Anything for an adrenaline rush that can override her guilty numbness and let her forget the tragedy she never saw coming.
Their scars make them perfect operatives. Their mirrored pasts give them deep, wounded reasons to stay alone. But the more they ignore the tension, the more vulnerable they become. Survival means trust. In one another, behind closed doors, and on the job. The only way they're making it out alive is if they find peace while waging a war.

Sexy suspense stories are the best, but HART ATTACK wasn't one of my favorites in the Titan series by the talented Ms. Harber.
Titan soldier Roman Hart has it bad for CIA operative Beth Tourne, but she knows that she isn't the woman for a man like Roman. She's got too many demons; she's too broken inside to give him anything but her superficial self. Her "party girl" cover is ideal for a woman who can't feel anything more than skin deep.
Roman can't figure Beth out. One minute she's hot, the next she's cold. One minute she wants to be just friends, the next she wants him on his back. All he knows is that she's driving him crazy and he would lay down his life to protect her...especially when she suddenly takes a field job with the CIA. When the two of them have to work together to stop a terrorist, they'll have to figure out their true feelings before their attitudes get them both killed.
HART ATTACK is book #5 in the Titan series about a group of covert private ops players and the trouble they can get themselves into. I've read every book in this series and consider it one of my favorites, and while HART ATTACK is a decent addition, it's not my favorite. I really had a tough time liking Beth, she just went back and forth so many times, lead Roman on so many times and it drove me nuts. I can't imagine that anybody bought her cover as some party girl, given her depressive demeanor all of the time (though for good reason. Her backstory was very well written and stunningly sad). Roman wasn't much better. His barbaric attitude and loudmouthed disregard for Beth's job kinda turned me off and made both of their jobs seem very unbelievable.
That said, the chemistry between them was explosive, even if Beth needed a one way ticket to crazy town and Roman needed to be taken down with a roll of duck tape over his mouth & around his wrists. As a couple, they were hot, but as government operatives well trained in secrecy, stealth and control, they were both epic fails. That made the entire storyline questionable, even the more suspenseful parts which I usually love.
Overall, it was an OK addition to this series, but if it were the only Titan book I'd have read, it would have put me off the entire series.
