He has no intention of turning in his combat boots for golf shoes. His former life in Special Ops, where he protected innocents and fought dangerous enemies, provided the rush he continually craved.

    Rosalie's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsDuke Gunnison is retired military and recently left the Special Forces. A “what could have been” sits heavily on his mind after a mission left him being rescued and taken care of by the one that got away, the only woman he has ever loved. When a phone call from big deal Grey Holden offers him the opportunity of a lifetime to be a bodyguard to that princess that got away, Duke decides, ‘why the hell not?! Bite the bullet!’Mila Bartosh is the daughter of “Ukranian’s Finest Diplomat” who is being sought after to help with negotiations of the removal of troops in Eastern Ukraine. However, sweet Mila has revenge she wants to exact on a mob boss; which CONSTANTLY puts her in danger. But revenge is all that’s on this beauties’ mind…and a sexy Duke!I absolutely loved this novella. I’m usually not one for action, but this one had me on the edge of my seat the entire read (and rethinking why I don’t read action romance novels!). I loved the sexy alpha and seeing him in action? Holy heat! And Mila was no back down heroine. She was amazing and held her own throughout, both in the field and in the bedroom! I truly felt like, throughout the read, that I was in the middle of the action, with bullets zinging by my head as well! Fantastic read that you don’t want to miss!!Review copy provided for an honest review.

    Duke Gunnison was just drifting through life after retiring from Delta Force. Then he got “the call” – the one that would change his life forever. Mila Bartosh was plotting and planning to get the man who killed her mother. That didn’t work out quite the way she planned it. Enter Duke Gunnison, the man from her past. Duke accepted the bodyguard job offered by Grey Holden of the Omega Team. Duke was now heading back to a second chance with Mila. And then…. You will just have to read the story to see how their HEA comes about. Let me assure you that you will be treated to lots of action, suspense and a smokin’ hot, yet achingly poignant love scene before you get there.Author Brenna Zinn has scripted an intriguing storyline complete with well-developed characters and vivid scenes of the Ukraine which make the reader feel a part of the action. The story takes some sharp turns as Duke and Mila run for their lives. Do yourself a favor and race along with them in this breathtaking intrigue.

    This is my first look into the world of Omega Team and a very pleasurable look it was! If all the hero's are as swoon worthy as Duke I am going to have to get up to date. Fast!! This is a quick fast paced story with an amazing amount of suspense and action in such a short story. Also amazing was how well I got to know Mila and Duke in this quick read including all the details about their past. In this story Mila's life is on the line and Duke will do whatever it takes to get her out of danger safely. It is definitely well done and a book I would highly recommend to everyone.

    This was a good story, about a retired Special Ops Master Sargeant who is not enjoying being out of the action. So he takes a job with the Omega Team, a private security firm. He is hired to protect a Ukranian diplomat's daughter Mila who unbeknowst to Duke has her own agenda for revenge.So Duke and Mila already know each other and she had saved his life 2 years previously while he was on duty in the Ukraine. Both still harbour feelings for the other:"Don't you see? I loved you enough to set you free, but I'm too selfish to stay away, even though it's what's best for you. When I was offered this job and was told you were the one I was to protect, I thought fate was showing its hand on what I needed to do.""The same rugged man who had caused her heart to leap when she'd first seen him and every time since then. The man who had so easily stolen her heart.""Those gentleman are two parts to a time bomb just waiting to explode.""His hands roamed down the slope of her waist and up the rise of her hips."Suspense, intrigue, love and belonging were all part of this story; a story that was interesting and moved at a good pace until its conclusion. Well worth the read.

    Second chance at love can he survive her lashing.Wow, can I say that this read was intense, action packed and of course there was romance in the air. Master Sergeant Duke Gunnison was going to have his hands full with Mila Bartosh. He should have known that the minute she saw him that he was going to get a tongue lashing and maybe some bodily harm for lying to her. Mila was a bright young woman that had fallen madly in love with the man that she helped heal. Now she finds out that he will be her bodyguard over her dead body. But soon they both find out that the Russian mob means business and there is a possibility of a leak in the security detail of Mila’s father. They were going to have to work together in order to stay alive. They were going to have to dodge bullets, literally.Precious Cargo was a great read. This is a new author for me and I really enjoyed her story and writing. I loved the connection that the characters had and that deep down that feeling had not gone away after two years. The pace of this story is fast which I loved but it finished too quickly. I totally recommend this read!!Received ARC in exchange for an Honest Review

    **more at melenasreviews.wordpress.com**I have to say the Omega Team is becoming a favorite of ex soldiers that will make you swoon. Duke, like Grey, is just trying to find his life back after his stunt in the army is over. The life he had before is gone and all he knows is being a soldier. I loved that Brenna Zinn shows us no matter who you are love is something that never falters. The passion that Duke has for Mila is strong and no matter how many lies there is he is determined to keep his woman safe. Brenna Zinn did a beautiful job in showing no matter that there is danger love can outshine anything amidst the bloodshed.

    What a compelling read! In the first three pages Brenna Zinn described Duke Gunnison to a masterful tee, a mixture of masculinity with a dash of vulnerability. He is irresistible. Then she added Mila, a gorgeous, independent firebrand from his past. The results are explosive. Precious Cargo is an engaging combination of suspense, romance and humor that is impossible to put aside. Of her many books, this is Brenna Zinn's best work. It left me wanting more and I'm hoping that Ms. Zinn isn't through with Duke and Mila just yet. I was provided with a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Engaging characters and a well written storyline. make this an extremely satisfying read.I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves some exciting thrills with their smouldering romance.

    Precious Cargo is a super quick and action packed read. Duke Gunnison is a retired Special Ops Master Sergeant, and bored as hell. When the founder of the Omega Team calls to hire him for an assignment, he takes it. He's to protect Mila Bartosh, daughter to an important Ukrainian diplomat. She's also the woman that he fell in love with while being undercover in the military, and left without a word. Mila's heart has hardened from being broken, and she's super mad when she sees him again. Will Duke be able to calm her down enough while keeping her safe?This story is very exciting, but I felt it was too short. Duke and Mila are awesome characters that needed more pages to develop into their full awesomeness. The story line is fast paced, and flows well, with twists and turns around every corner. Brenna Zinn's easy writing style captivated me immediately, and I devoured this story. The ending is a bit rushed for me, so I'm perfectly willing to beg for more of Duke and Mila in the future. Overall, a good story, and I will be reading more of this author in the future.

    Love & Action!Brenna Zinn has done it again. This action packed love story was enthralling. I couldn’t put the book down. I was pulled into the story from the beginning with Duke finding himself kind of put out to pasture and not knowing which direction to go. He gets a second chance with the Omega Team. Also I liked the fact that Mila even though she was a diplomat’s daughter was a down to earth person who actually had nursed Duke back to health. This showed her caring, loving side.But let’s not forget the diplomat, protective father of Mila. He was a very important character that I think I should mention that in the end made it possible for Duke and Mila to be together. He was providing a solution to the two for their happiness.I can’t say enough good things about this story. I look forward to the other Omega team’s story. I also hope we will hear how Mila and Duke are doing in the future. Keeping my fingers crossed for an update on them.

    Loved this novella, lost loves and second chances. Once I had started I didn't want to put it down. Delta Force was Duke Gunnison's life until he took retirement. Receiving a phone call, he is offered a job of guarding the daughter of a Ukrainian diplomat. He jumps at the chance when he finds out who the diplomats daughter is. Mila Bartosh, tho one woman he had ever met who captured his heart but he had let her go, it was a different time, a different world, she could do better...is fate giving him a second chance. I loved the fact Mila was a strong woman who could look after herself and that Duke, a big rough tough Army Master Sargent, opened his heart and did all he could to make amends for past wrongs. Throw in some Ukrainian Mobsters and a dirty head of security and you'll have plenty of suspense and action to keep you turning the pages

    The Omega Team: Precious Cargo by Brenna Zinn is the 6th installment of the Kindle Worlds series. I have not read any of the previous novels in this series. I was not lost at all. This is a straight forward love story with intrigue.Mila is looking for revenge. The daughter of a Ukrainian diplomat she is cultured, but also deadly in her own right. A smart and feisty character that I really liked. She is a strong willed character who can save herself. I liked that a lot.Duke is strong, tough, and alpha. He is a man with a past. He wants to rekindle what he had with Mila. He is willing to do whatever it takes to do that.Over all great fast paced romance with enough intrigue and action to keep me turning the pages. I would love to go back and read the books I missed. I would love to see how they enhance the series.Four Twinkling Stars

    *ARC received in return for an honest review*There is only one woman Duke ever loved and she and her diplomat father happen to be the newest client of the Omega Security Agency. When he's offered a job as her bodyguard he jumps at the chance. Considering the lies he told and the way he left her, Mila's not inclined to forgive him but he might be the only one who can keep her alive. I liked this novella a lot although I kind of wish it was a bit longer. In any case, I really liked the author's writing style. There's romance, action, and a HEA. This is a quick enjoyable read.

He asks Duke to take on the job of bodyguard to Mila Bartosh, daughter of Yure Bartosh, a Ukrainian diplomat.

    Omega Team: Precious Cargo by Brenna Zinn is a fairly short read. This would be a good choice for those with limited time for reading. Precious Cargo is well written with no choppiness. The characters are awesome. Ms Zinn has loaded Mila and Duke's story with action, humor and sizzle. I enjoyed Omega Team: Precious Cargo and look forward to reading more from Brenna Zinn in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
