Renee Rose & Vanessa Vale ~ Alpha Mountain: Warrior ~ Blog Tour / Excerpt / ARC Review

Warrior, an all-new mercenary standalone romance full of heat in the Alpha Mountain Series from USA Today bestselling authors Renee Rose and Vanessa Vale, is available now!







Mistake #1: Sleeping with a friend

Hooking up with Quincy was a no-brainer.

The sexy hot-shot Navy pilot wasn’t on my SEAL team.

I thought she’d be safe for a one-night stand.


Mistake #2: Letting her walk out the door

I realized too late she wasn’t a one-and-done for me.

But now she thinks I’m a player. Okay, she knows I’m a player.

Which is why she won’t go there with me again.


Mistake #3: Wanting to repeat Mistake #1.

Quincy’s on my team. We live in the same barracks.

We’re friends. I don’t want to screw that up.

Being near her is pure torture. I don’t know how much longer I can last

Before I risk the biggest mistake of all–losing her.

“Sweets, I know you think I’m a player. I definitely got around before we hooked up in Qatar–no denying it. I was no monk and definitely not a virgin. Neither were you.”

She blinked, then gave a quick nod. Neither of us had any intention of talking about past partners, but I had thrown the redheaded waitress in her face, even if it hadn’t been true.

“But I haven’t been with anyone since.”

Quincy’s mouth opened and she stared at me. “You haven’t been with anyone…” she echoed in a stunned voice. “Wait, since last week, you mean?”

I shook my head. “Since Qatar.” I held my hands up. “I swear to God, sweets. I know we didn’t make any promises or commitments to each other, but after you, no one else seemed to measure up. I didn’t feel like going there with anyone else.”

Quincy looked like she was going to faint or something. She swayed on her feet, staring at me in shock. Yeah, the manwhore who turned into a born-again virgin because of her.

“If that doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, I’m not sure what will.” I let out a rueful laugh. “I know it’s a shocker. It sort of shocked me, too. I just want you, Quince. Can we revisit that as a possibility?”

Quincy blinked rapidly. “Um.” She let out a ragged laugh. “This is so weird.” She stumbled forward–almost to my arms, but not quite.

I managed to keep from dragging her the rest of the way in, but I did reach out and grip her muscular thighs, stroking along the bare skin below the hem of her skirt.

“You’re telling me you…you gave up women after me?”

I grinned. “I didn’t give up. I was saving myself for the best.” I winked at her and she let out a breathy laugh, finally taking that last step to fall into me. Her hands came to my shoulders and my face went between her tits. I slid my palms up her legs to cup her panty-clad ass underneath the skirt, which was up around her waist now.

“Saving yourself,” she scoffed softly. “That’s ridiculous, Kennedy.” Her fingertips explored the tattoo on my back.

“It’s all true.”

“I…I’m flabbergasted.”




My ARC Review:

The third book in this fantastic Alpha Mountain series and I’m loving Quincy and Kennedy – these two are a perfect match for each other – but not right away!

Quincy and Kennedy were in the Navy together and hooked up, which rocked each other’s world, but Quincy did a runner as Kennedy was a player then, a girl in every port, and she didn’t want that.

Fast forward to now, they are both working for Ford in his team, Quincy is the helicopter pilot, and the forced proximity of them working together is hell! Quincy can’t get Kennedy and his epic talents out of her head, but blows him off all the time, she doesn’t just want to be a notch on his bed post, and so tries her best to hate him and keep away.

Kennedy knew he was done for after Quincy, she ruined him for any other girl, and hasn’t been with anyone else since her. He knows she hates him, but he cannot stay away, and definitely does not want her to be with anyone else!

These two are on fire together, they ‘hate’ each other with a passion, and when that passion spills over to the bedroom expect fireworks! Quincy wants a career, not to be tied down to a home life like her mum, she has 3 older brothers and a father in the Navy and has always had to prove herself but was never good enough for her father. Her sark and wit keep Kennedy on his toes!

Kennedy is very alpha, dominant, and protective of Quincy and she has the power to hurt him like no other, but he is unable to keep away.

The previous two books have the guys still looking to clear Ford’s name and we find out more about that in this one. The closer they get to the answers the more danger the team is in. Lots going on in this one, great character interaction, lots of action and drama with some extremely hot steamy scenes! A terrific addition to this series!
