Type: Romantic Suspense
My Copy: NetGalley
New neighbors are bad news in Samantha Harper’s experience. Especially ones as suspicious and brooding as the guy who just moved in next door. So when the dangerous but sexy stranger seems to be involved in something illegal—the aspiring cop in her takes action. If only she could stop thinking about how he looks naked…
All DEA agent Ash Cooper wants to do is lay low and survive this crap surveillance assignment. But after a run-in with his attractive neighbor, he realizes that’s going to be much harder than he planned. Keeping the woman out of trouble is hard enough, but keeping his hands off her is near impossible.
When wanna-be cop, Sam notices a suspicious new neighbor, she’s determined to find out everything she can about him. Armed with homemade weapons and a band of nosy elderly women, Sam sets up surveillance and against her better judgement, becomes a shadow he can’t dodge.
Ash doesn’t need some nosy neighbor trailing his every move. Working undercover looking for a drug supplier is difficult enough without Sam constantly getting in his way too. Giving her something to do will not only get her out of his hair but maybe allow him to actually do his job. Except the more time he spends with her, the more he likes her, until their combustible attraction hits a breaking point and Ash is left wondering what’s more important, getting his team back together or the one woman who seems to see past the walls he created out of self preservation.
On Her Six was a fast read with snappy dialogue and well fleshed out characters. Ash and Sam together was not only hot but hilarious at times. Sam seemed to get on Ash’s very last nerve quite often, resulting in my constant chuckling as he tried desperately to keep the woman in check. She had a way of finding trouble around every corner, but at times it was her that ended up saving him…even if he wouldn’t have been in trouble in the first place if it hadn’t been for her.
Sam’s grandma and the local neighborhood watch play a large role, which was often incredibly funny. There’s just something about watching an immensely alpha man be put in his place by a handful of scrappy grandma’s that made me laugh. Ash got his revenge though by knowingly displaying his goods while being videotaped by the unstealthy group. Doing naked lunges, I just…LMAO.
I will definitely be back for book two, because Christina Elle has thoroughly hooked me with her world building and engaging characters. Both suspenseful and funny, On Her Six is worth the read for the naked lunges alone, add in everything else and you’ve got yourself an awesome book!
I give On Her Six by Christina Elle 4 stars!
