Review: Finding Her Chance - Brittney Sahin

Finding Her Chance (Stealth Ops #4)
by Brittney Sahin
Published: June 6, 2019
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Military Fiction

A drunken night in Vegas led to an accidental marriage... and a vow he’d die to honor.

An elite Navy SEAL and one of the world’s best snipers, Liam Evans lives and breathes his missions. It’s a simple — if not solitary — way to live, but it keeps his heart safe and his head in the game. But one night in Vegas with his beautiful friend destroys his one rule, leaving him at risk of falling for his own wife.

Emily Summers, a successful lawyer for the attorney general’s office, swore off charmers with sexy accents and devastating smiles, and a weekend in Vegas isn’t going to change that. But when she and Liam meet to sign their it-never-happened annulment papers, the night turns deadly when an assassin takes aim at Emily.

Liam and Emily soon discover the hit is related to both of their jobs and an op involving an eight-year-old super genius with a ten-million-dollar bounty on her head.

Caught between searching for answers and growing threats while trying to keep a young girl safe — Liam and Emily must also face their mounting desire for each other, as well as confront past pains.

Fate may have tied them all together, but if they want a chance at a future, they’re going to have to fight for it.

Waking up from a one night stand is one thing, waking up married, on the night of your best friends' weddings no less, is another. Liam and Emily should be signing annulment papers, their lives are too different, they've been warned off one another too many times, but there's something there that they're both struggling to ignore. Ops and mercenaries don't care about emotions though, putting Emily right in the center of danger and Liam, despite the waiting papers, can't deny he wants to protect her. Desperate for answers, and to keep a young girl safe, the two put the papers to the side and team up to find out why their jobs are suddenly overlapping. With their safety on the line and emotions heightened the two must navigate national security and their brewing disaster together.

"He's great. But he'll break your heart."

I will be the first to say that I think series with standalone novels featuring connected characters can occasionally get monotonous, that hasn't been the case with the Stealth Ops series and certainly isn't the case with Finding Her Chance. Liam and Emily surprised me at every turn, the operation in this novel almost felt secondary to their relationship predicament, and I loved how these two work through their feelings. They're the two people their friends warned them away from and yet, here they are married. Finding Her Chance is a novel that grabs your attention immediately, readers who have met Liam know how he keeps to himself and reading about him having to be honest and open is so interesting. It's not the norm for the character, nor for his career, and it really made me like him even more. Emily is the kind of girl that can roll with the punches, but she's also sworn off relationships and Liam, a man who's well known as a player, certainly isn't the one her friends want her to begin one with. It's a case of least likely to, but it's also the sort of event that forces both of them to reevaluate their plans.

"'After what we've been through, it's okay to let loose and let go.' As long as I don't fall in the process."

Finding Her Chance is a fast-paced romance novel that packs a punch. Brittney Sahin knows how to weave the Stealth Ops story into the romance so perfectly, the threat of a bad guy blending right in with the lust brewing between Liam and Emily. Liam is a teamguy, his life is perfect as a SEAL and as a special operative, he loves protecting his country and honoring those who gave all. He doesn't believe he has room for more, he doesn't even believe he has the capacity to accept more, but Emily presents an unexpected challenge that he doesn't have op instructions to help him work through. The spark between them is one that has always been there and while the unexpected Vegas marriage seems like a hurdle, the dangerous mission he must drag her along for forces him, and Emily, to both visit feelings and desires they'd let lie dormant. The mission, the danger, makes them both question whether that drunken marriage is really just a new op where they are a team of two.

"They were friends. Only supposed to be friends."

Entertaining from start to finish, Finding Her Chance is a standout romantic military fiction that had me captivated. I've said it before, but as an author Brittney Sahin just keeps improving and I have no idea how she'll be able to top this home run of a novel. The men of Stealth Ops and their no-nonsense leading ladies are such a joy to read about, you won't regret meeting them, even if you sit on the edge of your seat the entire time you read. Liam and Emily were so cute, so funny, and together very sexy, buttttt I am still over here just waiting patiently for my man, Knox Bennett.
