It’s the flight delay she’ll never forget…
Stuck in an airport bar with a choice between two drunk roommates or one dark and delicious stranger, Zoe Chestain decides to live dangerously for once, and succumbs to a night of Shay Bommer’s dominant passion. But her cloud of sensual bliss is blown apart the next day, when the Vegas dancer and her friends are taken hostage by the hijackers of their flight home. Zoe’s horror deepens when her kidnapper reveals himself. Shay.
It’s the mission he’ll never give up…
Shay Bommer is one of the Army’s best, a Special Forces soldier who followed in the footsteps of his brother knowing infiltration with the enemy would sometimes be necessary. But this operation, deep under cover with one of the CIA’s most sought-after criminals, has cost him more than the trust of the most breathtaking submissive he’s ever had in his arms. He’s given up the camaraderie of his unit, the protection of his country, and even the esteem of his brother  in the quest to rescue one priceless treasure. His mother.
Can they turn “never” into forever?
Zoe’s danced to some crazy songs in her time, but no wild choreography has prepared her for the adventure of life with Shay—or the return to his bed that means surrendering more than just her body. As they run from the bad guys, the good guys, and everyone in between, she learns about the man behind all his masks, and the Dominant for whom she’s always longed.
When Shay honors his word and unlocks her bonds for good, Zoe must face the truth—that her heart will always be Shay’s willing captive. But staying with him means dying with him. The heat is on. Can Shay and Zoe’s love survive the flames?

Hot for His Hostage by Angel Payne is sixth in her W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forcesseries.  It is best to have read this book in chronological order. 
I loved Zoe.  She was so conflicted about her submissive nature.  She had a vague understanding about what it meant to be submissive and she was pleasantly surprised to find her ideas unhealthy on top of false.  I adored Shay’s patience when Zoe would slip into her unhealthy past while in a scene.  Ms. Payne wrote their first sexual interaction so vividly the heat literally leaped from the pages.  I loved that Shay and Zoe’s kink dovetailed so nicely and wasn’t what one would expect from a scene.  It was less physical and more emotional which led to an intensity between Zoe and Shay that felt timeless.  That intensity forged a bond between Shay and Zoe able to withstand the twists and turns Ms. Payne gave us in this story.  Zoe was able to find a strength that was belied by her submissive nature.  She was the rock her Sir needed when his world began crumbling and I loved the steel core that Ms. Payne gave this female character.  She reiterated that submissive doesn’t mean weak and I appreciated how well she articulated that fact.
This story was not dependent on any other characters but knowing the back story would have made this a smoother read.  Prior to reading this tale I had only read the first story in the series so found myself struggling to understand some of the connections.  With that in mind I think I would have derived more enjoyment from this story having read prior books in this series.  Overall, I found this addition to Ms. Payne W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series to be a well written and thought out.
