BLOG REVIEW: Beneath the Fire by Victoria Paige

21yo college student had been seeing 24yo lacrosse student Hero for 3 weeks.
They finally became intimate and he gets intense and possessive with her. As much as she likes his attention, she can't get too close to him. Heroine doesn’t want him to know about her involvement in a dangerous rescue operation.
She & her friend are planning on rescuing kidnapped girls who are part of her father’s sex-slave business. Hero doesn’t divulge that he’s masquerading as a college student to track her activities. But their feelings for each other develop & it gets harder to keep their secret from each other. How does their fledgling relationship stand when the truth gets revealed?

Not bad, not bad at all. I was skeptical at how good a 77-page romantic-suspense novella would fare. I was pleasantly surprised that the romance was there with some steamy sex scenes and some exciting rescue & car-chase scenes. The characters were fleshed out enough to hold my interest. And I found the main characters growing care for each other believable. Three weeks seemed like a short time to have fallen in love given the deceit & great stress of college and the mafia-CIA activities. But the author made me believe it. This glimpse of their romance & action-suspense whet my appetite for the next book in the series. 

I recommend this book.
4-star
