I know all about guys like Cullen Hunt.
Gorgeous. Wealthy. Powerful.
I just fled New York to escape one.
But when I reach Colorado, it’s either take a job at Cullen’s Trident Rescue or become homeless.
And Cullen? He’s worse than I thought.
Controlling. Demanding. Jerk.
A grenade always teetering on the edge.
He’s also hot as sin and makes my toes curl.
I hate that I dream about him.
Kissing me, holding me.
He has dreams as well.
Nightmares that only I can tame.
I know all about guys like Cullen Hunt.
I’m smart enough to stay away.
Amazon top-hundred author Alex Lidell delivers a page-turning enemy-to-lovers stand-alone romance, with a spunky heroine, a powerful Navy SEAL, and heart-wrenching PTSD that only love can heal.
Enemy Zone is the first book of the Trident Rescue Series, which follows a group of Navy SEALs who return home to Denton Valley, Colorado, and start a search and rescue team called Trident Rescue. The books can be read in any order.
Cullen felt Sky’s mouth yield to him and pressed onward with all the frustration and need that was ripping him apart inside. His tongue raked over her mouth, deep and rough and punishing, even as his cock grew so hard, he was ready to scream from the pressure. Sky’s mouth gave so beautifully, so generously as her small body vibrated in his arms, that Cullen felt absolutely drunk on the taste of her.
Inside his grip, Sky’s wrist was pulsing hard enough that he felt the rapid rhythm of her heart. Pinning her wrist against her body, he wrapped his other arm around her back, his mouth devouring her softness. Live currents of electricity sang through his veins, as if Sky’s passion and determination and everything that made her unlike him now flowed through his blood, mixing with the fury that woman sparked with such damn efficiency.
And when Sky’s mouth returned the kiss, her own body pressing against Cullen’s, the sensation seared a path from his mouth right to his full, full cock.
His heart was hammering as he pulled away, his chest heaving with harsh deep breaths. The realization of what he’d just done washed over him with a mix of ice and flame that was as disorienting as a flashbang grenade.
Her head tipped back, Sky stared up at him, her perfect mouth soft and slightly open and so tempting that it was all Cullen could do to stop himself from taking her right then and there.
“Cullen,” she breathed, her eyes dropping to where he was still holding her wrist tightly enough to cut off circulation.
He couldn’t have let go quicker if he’d touched molten lead. “I—” He stopped, words failing him, together with his common sense. Cullen didn’t know what to say, and was slightly afraid that his pulsing erection would make anything he did try to utter sound high-pitched.
Sky bit her lip, her beautiful and all-too-intelligent eyes seeming to see right through any shield Cullen put up. The tip of her tongue flicked out to moisten her now-swollen lips.
“Everything all right?” Eli stuck his head out the backyard gate fence. “You lot coming in?”
“Yes,” Sky and Cullen said at the same time.
Eli raised a brow and quickly retreated.
By the time Cullen had found his voice again, Sky was straightening out the material of her pale yellow dress and walking with purpose toward the party. Hanging back a moment, he couldn’t stop himself from watching how the fabric hugged her curves, gliding over the kind of ass that made a man hard from one glance. He shuddered, took one step to follow, and then turned on his heel and marched himself into Eli’s house instead.
He needed an ice-cold shower.

Enemy Zone is based in Denton Valley, Colorado with Cullon our handsome paramedic and Sky our tabloid worker. The story has humor, drama, chemistry and moments that will warm your heart but also pull at it. The ending will not disappoint and will be ready for the next book in this series.
Lidell created a wonderful book piecing and interwinding the other characters as well to get me staying up way later than i planned on many occasions.
Lastly, thank you to Rockstar Book Tours and Lidell for the opportunity to read this novel for a honest review.
