Review – Croft (Wild Mustang Security Firm)

Delightful! There were several times that I fought to keep the laughter in. I don’t think my husband would have understood it but I loved every minute of it.

The Reluctant Retiree

The last thing a photojournalist with a secret needs is a former Navy SEAL on a mission to find the truth.

When a ransom is demanded for her brother’s life, photojournalist Finlay Reid needs a guide to the rendezvous to make the exchange. What she gets is Wild Mustang Security Firm’s, Billy Crofton.

Croft is hot, ruthless and dominant. Finn tries to keep the former SEAL at bay but finds that something in his heated gaze makes her heart skip a beat.

When he catches Finn in a blatant lie, Croft thinks nothing of introducing the spirited photographer to the consequence of old fashioned discipline. As Croft and Finn wind their way through the Grand Canyon to the exchange point, things become more heated than the Arizona sun.

Croft never expected Finn to push all his buttons; Finn never thought she’d yield to his demands … or respond so wantonly.

But the truth is even more dangerous than either of them realized…

The Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars “Delta’s stories are filled with erotic encounters of romance and discipline.”

Yes, this is an actual quote from the last page of my book. Believe me, Ms. James lives up to that statement. It is not hype! Sensual, explicit, arousing and entertaining are only a few of the ways to describe her books. This book was formerly “Forever Finn” because the most poignant and significant proclamations in the book is “Always and forever, Finn. Always and forever.” Who wouldn’t love a book where the man is over-the-moon in love with his woman? In reality, his treatment of her as a customer could have been abuse and lawsuit-worthy. 🤓 But I LOVED it.
Finlay Reid aka Finn is on a mission to save her brother from kidnappers but needs the assistance of a good tracker to get where she needs to meet them in the Grand Canyon. Enter Billy Crofton aka Croft of the Wild Mustang Security Firm. He senses something more at play here but can’t quite figure it out. Problem is he is attracted to her physically if he can overlook her snark. He, like the rest of the Wild Mustangs is into spanking discipline and she is just too outspoken. But then again, he wants a woman “who is his equal, who is willing to yield to his authority.” Could she? Would she? Whoa…her first spanking and its result. 😜
There is intrigue, spanking and what follows, humor, more spanking and what follows, and an intro to Noah. I want to read Noah…he’s gruff and no-nonsense. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book and it comes highly recommended for readers who enjoy what happens AFTER the spanking. 😉

This is supposed to be an expanded version of Forever Finn, which I read in 2019. If I am being completely honest, if there is a difference between the two books, I didn't notice it. That being said, I will stick with my review from Forever Finn, which is below.

I don't know if it is Delta James intention, but her books always make me think. I love that her female leads are strong, intelligent, and independent women, and Finn is no different. One thing that is so intriguing is the quandary she has about whether she can submit to Croft, and if there is something wrong if she does.

I also appreciated that Croft and Finn's instalove or Insta connection was acknowledged upfront and discussed by the characters.

This book had its fair share of action, intrigue, and suspense. Any time spent with the team from the Wild Mustang Security firm is going to be fraught with dominant males, strong women, adventure, danger, witty banter, love, friendship, loyalty, and lots of laughs. Don't forget the romance, sometimes intense steamy scenes, and the spankings. If any of these things are offensive to you, take a pass on this book.

One thing that bothered me was the way the Christopher and Finn situation was resolved. I really thought there would be more. I am never opposed to an epilogue.

I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Never lie to an ex Navy Seal!

This second book in the series has Finn hiring the Mustang Security Firm to help find her "lost" brother, who isn't really lost, but has actually been kidnapped and needs to be rescued. Croft, an ex Navy Seal,is assigned to help her out and is not very pleased when he finds out he has been lied to. This leads to Finn's first lesson in what happens when Croft is deceived or his instructions are ignored. But of course, Finn, being the independent, stubborn woman that she is, is undetoured and continues with her reckless and defiant ways, leading to many punishments for her and many adventures and problems for both of them, as well as steamy romance, because this is after all a Delta James book.This book can stand alone, but as in all of Delta's series, characters from the previous book are included, so reading them in order will definitely heighten your enjoyment.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book.
