Colton Robertson left his career in the Air Force…
… to come home and help his family heal. Unfortunately, his reception was not quite what he’d hoped for and he ended up as roommate to hippy dippy yoga instructor Penelope Pruitt.
Penelope has spent her life under the restrictive thumb of her parents and she doesn’t want to do the same with the straight-laced, serious Colton. But when it becomes apparent that Penelope’s life is in danger, Colton won’t settle for anyone else protecting Penelope besides him.
Opposites attract and that’s definitely the case with Colton and Penelope. On the surface, they don’t have anything in common, but as the sparks fly and the danger ramps up, their passion is inevitable.
Danger in the wilds of Texas!
My Thoughts on Operation: Endeavor
Oh, man. The poor Robertson clan just can’t catch a break when it comes to stumbling over nasty happenings in Lubbock, TX. THINGS HAPPEN! And those things sometimes involve a body count. Which happens. You know, when you read romantic suspense.
So. Colton. He’s a little domineering and he can bark out orders like a pro, which makes sense given both his former career and how he practically raised Chris and Cassie. He’s protective and he wants what’s best for those around him. Which sometimes makes him hard to live with. As both Cassie and Chris and, later, Penelope now know. But he has the best intentions. He’s just a little bullheaded getting his point across at times.
Pen… well, she plays the flighty party girl well but she’s smart and loyal. And she might have a little, teeny, tiny secret she’s been keeping from her friends for the last several years. This secret kin of endeared her to me because GO, PEN!
While Pen and Colton are feeling each other out (snicker) in the potential romance department, THINGS are going down. Penelope’s in danger and, by extension, her friends get drawn into what she unwittingly stumbles into. THINGS HAPPEN! THINGS! We see some glimpses of a romance that isn’t (yet) and find out some heartbreaking stuff about Chris. Poor guy. A slew of new background characters get introduced (and I’m excited to see that we’ll be seeing more of them down the line!) and danger danger danger keeps everyone on their toes.
Bad guys, good guys, planes, and smokin’ sex. THINGS HAPPEN. It pretty much rocks.
