Special Agent Gavin “Badass” Walsh of the FBI is sent to South Texas to investigate terrorist activities. While out on a disturbance call, Gavin encounters a mysterious seductress. Compelled to attend a local social function, Gavin is introduced to the woman who has become his growing obsession, Dr. Amy Livingston.
As they fall in love, they deal with challenges from their damaged pasts. After twenty four years as a SEAL, Gavin is haunted by demons of war. Amy carries on the quiet life of a librarian, but the facade hides a damaged soul.
As the pieces of a dangerous plot come together, Gavin must survive terrorists, dirty cops, and gangbangers all taking aim at him. Gavin walks a razor-thin line when terrorists decide to use Amy as bait. As Amy’s life hangs in the balance, Gavin realizes that failure is not an option to save the woman he loves.

Gavin is an FBI agent serving a dual purpose.  He is serving two masters and then he meets Amy.  Amy throws him for a loop and at the most inopportune time.  When his case cuts a little too close for comfort, can he protect the woman who has come to own his heart?  In Hostile Homefront by Bella Juarez both Gavin and Amy must learn to trust in each other.  Amy struggles with low self-worth.  Her ex-husband was a right piece of work and she can’t understand what Gavin sees in her.  But Gavin sees beneath the smoking hot woman in front of him to the vibrant woman in his arms.  He finds her womanly curves just the tip of the iceberg.  He can talk with Amy.  They have much in common even though their backgrounds are nowhere near similar.  Gavin was willing to fight for Amy even if his first battle was with Amy herself.  I loved that Gavin saw more in Amy than she saw within herself.  And he was willing to fight for a future with the woman who as chipped away at his heart.  Add to his battling of Amy’s demons he also finds his case much bigger, more dangerous and closer to home than anyone expected.  Ms. Juarez gave us a story that was pedal to the metal from beginning to end.  It was full of emotion balanced by suspense and action.  She did a wonderful job of juggling several balls in the air while not losing focus of the romance between Gavin and Amy.  This story is a wonderful addition to the Black Ops Brotherhood series.
