Wow, Book 3 of the Nighthawk Search & Rescue series. This series is phenomenal!

This book focuses on Emma, a former soldier and member of the Nighthawks, and Marcus, an actor who is determined to produce and star in a movie about the Nighthawks. Emma has been chosen to teach him how to be a Nighthawk. Appearances are deceiving. As they discover who the other really is as they handle the many obstacles, they must overcome to reach their HEA. Another outstanding story that you won’t be able to put down. I highly recommend this story as well as the previous two Nighthawk books. Amanda – they keep getting better and I can’t wait for the next one.

I received a copy of this book from Author Collective and NetGalley in exchange for a voluntary and honest review. My opinions are my own and not solicited in any way.

This was another great book in the Nighthawk series. Emma is such a strong woman who has been through a lot but never let it affect who she is. When she is tasked with training Marcus on all parts of their search and rescue techniques, she never expected for things to turn out the way they did. Falling for Marcus was something she never wanted, but here she is doing so. He is such an amazing man who does so much good for the world and he cares about people more than anyone knows. After discovering this side he keeps hidden from the fans and public, she can’t help but love him. She didn’t expect for him to feel the same, but love never comes easy. Will they be able to survive all of the challenges thrown their way? I was given a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I recently found this author and I am so glad I did!! This series sucked me in from the very first book. I am a sucker for one of the MC's walking away to "save" the other one, just gets me every time! I thought I knew where this plot was going but I was so wrong, I highly recommend you go into this book blind like I did because it made it that much better! I really enjoy how the author handled the couple's issues and disagreements, they weren't immature and full of tantrums but instead had real conversations. The steam was always very well written, what are you waiting for, go start at the beginning of this series and read them all!

Don't believe everything that's written in the press, especially not if it's about superstars with headline grabbing and sensational font all over the internet. Marcus is one of these celebrities who's constantly chased by the paparazzis, hardly able to even go for a short walk without being hassled. He is most happy when he manages to escape the hustle and bustle and go hiking on his own. During one of these events he has an accident and needs rescuing by the Nighthawks, a search and rescue team of volunteers.

Impressed with their professionalism and skills, Marcus arranges to be trained by them in preparation for a new film he's planning, and their best coach Emma is assigned to him. She couldn't care less for the superstar and tries to wriggle out of the assignment, but reluctantly agrees.

Working together, Emma and Marcus start to develop a mutual respect and Marcus slowly becomes one of the Nighthawk team. Public life is full of challenges and being the super start Marcus is, he gets more than his fair share of it. He tries to shield Emma from it all, including walking away from her.

This is the third book in the Nighthawk Search and Rescue series, but if you like me haven't read the previous two books you can still happily read it and thoroughly enjoy it! PS. There's a fourth book in the series, and all are available on Kindle Unlimited when I write this review.

This book had me hooked from the very beginning! Every book in this series has been wonderful, and this one is no different. These two seem like they have it all, but looks can often be deceiving and your past can haunt you for years to come. When the truth comes to light, who will they really be able to trust? Will they even be able to trust themselves?

My Review
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. Book is already out.
I have really got to stop picking up books that are part of a series when I have not read the first book. Often times I haven’t a clue what is going on with the characters for the first few chapters of the book because of this. Thankfully, even though Emma’s Element is part of a series, it is a standalone, or I would have been lost and confused from the start.
I loved Emma and Marcus. I loved how strong Emma was as a person and how Marcus does his best to protect her even though he knows she could protect herself.
This book was a lot of fun. Marcus’ thoughts made me laugh from the first page. I really liked seeing both he and Emma come to respect and love each other. I am just so happy that I decided to give this book and author a try.
Would I read more from? Yes. Would I go back and read the series? Yes. I enjoy the story and while this is my first book by Amanda Zook. It would not be the last. I want to read about the rest of the Nighthawks and see them get their happily ever after.

Until next time peace and happy reading.
