Beverly Ann McCall 3.0 out of 5 stars Mac (Wild Mustang Security Firm #1) Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 14, 2022 Verified Purchase Mac is the first book in Delta James’ Wild Mustang Security Firm series. In it, readers meet Willa Reynolds and Ethan “Mac” McDaniel. Willa runs and owns a horse resort ranch specializing in memorable camping adventures. Willa is a remarkable tracker and marksman. Aside from running her ranch, she rescues and relocates wild mustangs from capitalist rustlers whose only desire is financial gain. Mac is a U.S. Marshall heads up a Fugitive Retrieval Team. Both Willa and Mac are strong, obstinate, self-reliant individuals. At one time they were in a relationship; however, lack of communication and misunderstandings catapulted them into different paths. But Destiny brings reunites them together when Mac is assigned the capture of a runaway criminal, Eastwick. As Eastwick attempts his escape on horseback, he encounters Willa. In an unguarded moment Eastwick confesses to the murder of his wife. This new information puts Willa in danger and lands smack in the middle of Mac’s pursuit. What happens when Mac and Willa reunite? Will there be sparks? Can Mac keep her safe? Will they find happiness? You must read this book to see what unfolds. Ms. James once again does a remarkable job in this romantic suspense. I enjoy her skillful use of conversational dialog, internal monologue, dual POV, and descriptive language. Combining all these literary devices, she adeptly draws readers’ attention with vibrant scenes, rich dialog, and witty banter. Nicely done, Ms. James.
Linda Reads VINE VOICE 4.0 out of 5 stars Must like strong alpha male who spanks his woman for disobeying his orders…sizzles! Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 28, 2020 Verified Purchase OK. Right off I must say sometimes these books can bother me, and not in a good way because I want the woman to be strong too. Because that is exactly what Willa is most definitely, this book is saved in my opinion. Willa turns all warm and gooey when Mac swats her a** and then…flash, bang, fireworks! Willa and Mac meet by chance, have a substantial fling where he actually moves to live on her ranch, but he gets a promotion on the other side of the country. They part ways and then he has an opportunity to return five years later. This is where our story takes place. We get lots of sizzle starting on page one. Mac is US Marshal Ethan McDaniel in Fugitive Retrieval and as such has been tasked to get back Simon Eastwick, a wife killer. Mac is back to get his fugitive and his woman. Can he do both? After five years will the strong-willed Willa accept his return? Along the way we get some terrifically steamy moments. Love the ending. If the daddy dom trope doesn’t work for you, pass this book on by, but I truly enjoyed it once I accepted that Willa really wants to submit to his authority and likes getting spanked. There is no humiliation or shaming involved in Mac’s dom or I would have stopped reading.
Meghan K. (Books2lovenow) 4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy Spanking Western Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 26, 2021 Verified Purchase I really enjoyed Mac and Willa's story. The plot was well written with no plot holes that I caught. All the characters were interesting and we'll rounded. There were only a few things that bothered me. The begining of the story was a bit jumpy it was a little confusing to get the time line. Once you got into the main story every flowed well. I would have liked to have seen a little more character growth on both Mac's and Willa's parts. Willa I would have liked for her to come to terms with needing help and submitting to Mac. On the other hand I felt like Mac never really acknowledged the difficulty Willa was having to submitting mentally. Physically yes she did but mentally it was really hard for her. I would have liked him to really have helped her through it rather than just strong arming her. Yes he was dominant but he wasn't being a very good dominant when he ignored her troubles. Overall, though, an enjoyable sexy story with some real humor in it. 2 people found this helpful
