High Seduction (Adrenaline Search & Rescue #3) by Vivian Arend

Heat Rating

I received ARC for honest review back in 2014 then reverted the post back to draft in 2015 to update and am now finally getting to it my apologies for the delay.

This review was originally posted March 25, 2014.

This was the best kind of book in that I just couldn’t put it down which meant that when 5:15 am rolled around the snooze button was my best friend :). I really loved how Erin creatively dealt with idiots using her chopper. I thought Tim’s single-minded tenacity and flexibility in achieving his goal was very romantic.

As with all of Vivian’s books all the characters in her books are well thought out and never left behind or forgotten as she focuses on the main characters. You see the thought she put into each chapter and scene and she smoothly transitioned from one to the other.

I only found discrepancy in my copy of this ARC and that was on pg 98 where Alisha says that Anders was going with her when he was actually still on the chopper with Erin so I think the character that was actually with her was Tripp as that is where he is on the next page.

I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series then reading this book again.

LIFELINE: an elite search-and-rescue squad based out of Banff, Alberta. Specializing in high-risk rescue missions, this team goes wherever the job takes them…

As the chopper pilot for the elite Search and Rescue team Lifeline, Erin Tate is used to handling power. Calling the shots in the air is one thing—in the bedroom it leaves her cold. What she wants is a man strong enough to strip away her control.

Paramedic Timothy Dextor has a wildcard reputation, and the dark appetites to prove it. The only thing missing is a woman he can share them with. Landing a position on the Lifeline squad puts his old flame back within reach. He already knows what Erin needs, and this time he’s not letting her go..

But when an emergency throws Erin and Timothy together in ways they hadn’t anticipated, the stakes are raised—on the job and off. Now they’ll both discover the real meaning of control…and the risks that come from falling in love.

I was given High Passion for and honest review by Manic Readers

Devon Leblanc has lusted after his team mate Alisha since search and rescue school. But now he is tired of hiding his lust and is ready to go for it. But now a man from her past is hanging around and team mates are being hospitalized.

Alisha Bailey was a poor little rich girl her wanted to make a life for herself on her own and she is happy with the life she has created for herself. She just wishes she could get past lusting after her team mate Devon, last thing she wants is to be another notch in his bedpost. Then her past shows up at her door and her team mates are ending up in the hospital.

What else can go wrong before Alisha and Devon find their happy ending?

High Passion is ok, I am kind of bummed because I expected better from this author. The characters are great and I can really connect with them but the story itself just isn’t doing it for me, I find myself looking for something else to read. I have never had this problem with Vivian Arend’s work before so writing this review is difficult for me.

LIFELINE: an elite search-and-rescue squad based out of Banff, Alberta. Specializing in high-risk rescue missions, this team goes wherever the job takes them…

Alisha Bailey left a life of privilege for the dangerous but thrilling world of search and rescue. Denying the lure of attraction to her teammate is another sacrifice she’s made to prove to everyone–including her family–that she’s more than a pretty face or a business commodity.

Since their training days, Devon Leblanc has used the competitive fire between them to hide his fascination with the petite beauty. When a natural disaster forces their rivalry aside, heated passion finally flares between them. Sexual pleasure slowly gives way to a new appreciation for each other’s skills–on the field and in the bedroom.

But when unexplained accidents begin happening to the Lifeline team, their newfound unity may be their only hope for survival…
