For an angel, Zoe sure is hell in heels in Breakers, Texas!

Former Army Ranger Dante Fox had had a tough time adjusting to civilian life after years in the military. Missing the adrenaline rush, Dante has been a surly and snarky bastard…unless he's fighting or fucking…the only two activities that make him feel "normal." Except the only tactic he wants to employ these days is #2 with the infuriating and stubborn Zoe Lang.

Dante can't get his sexy little bartender out of his head, walking around with a hard on every night at the bar he owns, The Fox Hole. But Zoe is hiding some pretty big secrets, and until she can summon the courage to tell Dante the truth about her past, she won't risk getting involved with him. When her secrets are revealed, Zoe is flabbergasted by Dante's reaction, and by his willingness to help her break free of her deadly chains. This is one mission that Dante doesn't mind undertaking if it means his woman is safe.

DANTE'S ANGEL is the third book in Ms. Roma's The Breakers' Bad Boys series and the first I've read (but it won't be the last!). Dante was an overbearing, overprotective Alpha male to his bones, and I adored his caveman tendencies. In Zoe, he's found not only a woman who needs protecting, but his soul mate. The chemistry is simply delicious, sparks igniting every time they're in the same room.

Because this book features multiple POV's, I got to know several of the other characters from this series, however the transition wasn't always seamless or made sense. Additionally, there were quite a few editing errors that caught my attention, and while the combination was distracting, they weren't deal breakers. The characters were well developed, with relatable personalities that I would love to personally get to know. And the sex scenes were worth waiting for, as Dante rocked Zoe's world (and vice versa) over and over. There was also a nice element of danger that started at about 3/4 of the way through, culminating in a tension-filled ending that I enjoyed. While DANTE'S ANGEL won't win any awards for originality, it's still a good read that I'd recommend to fans of contemporary romance.

Bottom Line: I'm a sucker for these kind of small town, big group of hot friends, nasty secrets galore kinda reads, and DANTE'S ANGEL delivers from every yummy angle!
