[I received a digital arc for an honest review]

Hijacked by Lucy Lennox and May Archer is the first book in the spin-off Licking Thicket series Horn of Glory. Carter Rogers has decided on a volunteer trip to provide medical care in Venezuela to escape the pressures of his life in small town Tennessee. He blindly agrees to all his grandfather’s demands if it means he can go help those in need. One of those demands he unhappily agrees to is bringing along bodyguard William Riggs. Riggs is on bodyguard duty after a grindr hookup goes terribly terribly wrong for his work. He has been told he can’t screw this up and must keep his urge to be friendly with his principal to a minimum. Carter finds himself working 18 hour days to provide care to as many as possible and ignore his growing attraction to his bodyguard who refuses to interact with him more than sniping at each other. As a dangerous situation throws both men into unfamiliar territory they find that getting close is the only thing keeping them alive.

Carter Rogers stole this show for me. He was his put together self when doctoring but a complete and total mess when he was trying to deal with the craziness that goes down in Venezuela. His oversharing endeared me to him immediately and I couldn’t help but fall for him when he opened up to Riggs. He allowed himself to be vulnerable both emotionally and physically with Riggs which just made me love him even more. Add in his adorable relationship with his cousin Kevin and his grandfather and I was sold.

And I tried not to. Sort of. But, f*ck. He’s… he’s… God, he’s just a really good man. The best. The best kind of man.”

William Riggs has gotten himself into hot water with his previous commander and now boss Champ. He’s working off his punishment with the assignment to protect Carter. Riggs was hit or miss with me throughout the book. I appreciated his sweet moments of caring for Carter and talking him off the ledge but running hot and cold got old for me real quick. He screws up badly and I don’t know if I ever fully forgave him.

Riggs, who drove me out of my mind with high-handedness and out of my mind with lust. Riggs, who I was realizing was exactly the person I wanted to spend the last days or hours of my life with, even if I hadn’t known it until now.”

This story was absurd. Like put the kindle down and scratch your head a bit absurd. It was entertaining for sure but like I still sit back and think about what happened and shake my head. As always Archer and Lennox provided us with a collection of wonderful side characters that almost brought the story back to reality. The star of course for me was cousin Kevin and his addiction to Horn of Glory, going as far as making sure Carter could play on his fancy purple horn. I can’t wait for Kevin’s book and I am looking forward to Champ’s as well. These authors have yet again hooked me, no surprise there.

4 stars for an insane adventure for Dr. Carter who finds out not only how brave he is but that he deserves a happily ever after.

Hijacked
 by May Archer and Lucy Lennox is the start of a spin-off series from their Licking Thicket series. If you haven’t read the Licking Thicket series, no worries, you can enjoy this one all on its own, but if you have you’ll see more than a few friendly faces.

Hijacked
 follows cardiologist Carter Rogers and his bodyguard Riggs when he travels to Venezuela to provide medical care for those in need. Carter doesn’t think he’s made for settling down, and Riggs is determined to keep things professional when it comes to the doctor. When things go horribly wrong, and they end up being kidnapped and Rigg’s realizes Carter has become more than just a job. Yet when the are rescued and find themselves rescued, will the connection they made me forgotten.

I had such high hopes for this book because I love May Archer and Lucy Lennox and I enjoyed the Licking Thicket series. However, this might have suffered from me not being in the mood for it (I am a huge mood reader) and that might have caused me to roll my eyes at the puns after puns after puns. The whole plot is also unbelievably ridiculous and not what I expected to be reading.

It’s not a good thing for me to love the side characters more than the main characters. While, Carter grew on me pretty quickly with his kind heart and nervous babbling, Riggs did not grow on me AT ALL. He was dumb and clueless and just that whole ending made me so angry, and I expected way more groveling on his part. Together they were okay, I mean the intimate scenes were great, but besides that I just wasn’t rooting for them. Carter’s cousin Kevin on the other hand was Fantastic and I loved all of his and Rigg’s teammate Hux’s texting. I would read that story in a heartbeat.

Hijacked
 by Licking Thicket was a decent contemporary romance that was a bit unpredictable, more than a little steamy and rounded out with a good amount of humor.
