Collapse (Havoc #4)

Special Forces Horn Unit Member, Michael Love, is best known for his smart mouth and sexual conquests. However, when a mission forces him to revisit his painful past, he is turned inside out. If the pressure from that wasn't enough, he's asked for a favor by the only girl who he could never tell no. Between the two missions will this Special Forces member survive or will the weight of it all force him to Collapse?

(Can be read as a Standalone, but is a novel in the Havoc Series)


*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review *

Collapse is book 4 in the Havoc series, but can be read as a stand alone.

Out of every single book I have read by Xavier Neal,  and I've read all but one, Collapse has left the biggest emotional impact. I laughed, I cried, and I fell head over heels in love.

Judging by his demeanor in the other books in the Havoc series I could have never even begun to fathom Michael's (Glove) depth. I most certainly would have been quick to deny him standing a remote chance of being my favorite male character. I have NEVER been so wrong. Michael's story  devoured me, heart and soul.

He has a tragic past and his  vulnerabilities consumed me. The joking and feigning ignorance is just a facade of protection.

Mandy, the female protagonist, is a witty, sexy character I absolutely love. Her desire to protect her heart is easily relatable.  Her laid back demeanor is refreshing. She's hard headed, intelligent, and fun.

Michael and Mandy's relationship/friendship is soul deep. It is the kind of relationship that is craved and one that comforts. The tension between the two is utterly intoxicating.  I will not ever get enough of these two.

On a side note, I am thoroughly impressed at the progress Neal makes as a writer. The fluidity of the prose is flawless.  It took nothing to suck me into the story and hold my intrigue until the end. This is one of the best stories I have ever read. I am over the moon to have it on my bookshelf.
