Review by Tiger Lily

Meet three sexy men who individually are READY, WILLING, and ABLE to go the distance-and together, are unstoppable.

Josie McCall left her dad's mercenary school for a normal job in computers. But now that someone has torched the school and her dad is MIA, Josie's going to use every bit of her training to hunt down the culprits who took him. Josie knows a lot about explosives, hand-to-hand combat, and tracking. What she doesn't know about is sex. She has no idea what to do with the volcanic attraction she feels for her dad's new partner, Daniel Black Eagle. And that feels more dangerous than any bomb.

Daniel knows exactly what he'd like to do about that attraction. He can't get within five feet of Josie without wanting to touch, taste, and protect her. But right now he's got his hands full figuring out who set that bomb and took Josie's dad. Daniel's sure of one thing, though-he's not letting Josie McCall out of his sight for a single second.

Sometimes the more you fight, the more nature is determined to throw you into situations you think you can’t handle. You just have to be Willing.

The second novel in Lucy Monroe’s Ready, Willing, and Able trilogy, Willing delivers and picks up where Ready left off. Again the scenes are rich, pulling the reader in from page one and keeping him or her riveted until the end.

Josette Mc Call isn’t versed in the ways of love, but she can kick butt if needed. When her father’s mercenary school burns to the ground and her father disappears, she’s pulled into action. So is her father’s new business associate, Daniel Black Eagle, aka Nitro. Daniel’s an explosives expert who knows the fire wasn’t an accident. He also knows his attraction to Josie is anything but an accident.

I liked that Josie was a strong woman in a small package. She’s easy for the reader to relate to because she’s not what she seems; she’s not meek and mild and she’s not always a girly girl. I love heroine’s that aren’t perfect. I also loved Daniel’s devotion to Josie even when he thinks he’s not good enough for her. Many men feel they aren’t good enough for their wives, significant others, or partners, but they try like heck to be what the person needs. The reader can identify with his needs and desires for her.

If you want a saucy read with captivating characters, then you want to read Willing. I give this book 4 ½ books.
