REVIEW: Want It (Rule Breakers #3) By, Jennifer Chance

In the latest tantalizing Rule Breakers novel from Jennifer Chance, an irresistible alpha male follows his ex into a deadly standoff—and reignites a heated affair.

For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her former high school sweetheart.

Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she made a call that terminated his highest aspirations . . . and their relationship. He’s never forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

When Erin’s irresponsible mother and boyfriend are taken hostage Erin doesn’t have many people to turn to and by many people I mean none. She has no idea how to go about a hostage rescue. When she remembers the funeral she will be attending has the one things that she needs. Her ex-boyfriend who is also military and should know the answers to her questions. The only problem is she got him arrested and ruined his career. He might hate her but she needs him and is willing to ask the questions. Now she just has to figure out how to do that without tipping him off.

The first half of the book was really good. Zander is the alpha male that wants to do what he can to protect Erin even after everything she put him through. He has this protectiveness that plays well with Erin’s naïve behavior. Zander is the guy that has seen a lot in his few years. He has many eye opening experiences that has left him mature for his age. Erin is the opposite. She is naïve in her questions to Zander and the way she views the world. She is very much wide-eyed and in over her head. The way the two interacted in the first half was great. They were cute a funny together with all of the things going unsaid.

My problem with the book is the second half of the book. When the couple finally got to Mexico a disconnection happened with me. The story seemed to slow down and I lost a little bit of my focus. The suspense was mainly in the background and the romance with the couple was definitely the main part of the story. The actual plot line with the hostages seemed like an afterthought. The second half of the book seems to really focus on Zander and Erin and their very steamy bedroom scenes. If you are reading this book for the action and suspense I would say that it wouldn’t be for you. I don’t think there was enough of a mix between the action and the romance. But if you are reading this for more of the romance than I think you would enjoy this book. The couple falling in love was not easy to read because they fell in love as teenagers. This is more about Erin and Zander realizing they are still in love and moving past everything that has happened. They were very sweet together and their interactions and dialogue were appealing. So if you are looking for a quick read with little action but a cute romance, the appealing writing would definitely make this a great read.
