HIGH OCTANE (3) by Lisa Renee Jones: In the second book of her Texas Hotzone series, Jones introduces us to Ryan “Cowboy” Walker, an ex-Army Ranger and adrenaline junkie who gets his thrills jumping out of planes for the Hotzone skydiving operation. Reporter Sabrina Cameron’s father, a U.S. senator, is gearing up for a presidential run. She rarely does anything unless it’s scripted down to the last detail, but decides to go skydiving on a dare. The cowboy skydiver Ryan takes it upon himself to push the limits of Sabrina’s comfort zone. Ryan is a throwback alpha hero who comes across as too strong and domineering; some readers may have a hard time seeing him as a romantic lead.
