Reeling from the death of her daring Navy SEAL brother, reserved McKenzie Prescott decides to honor him in the only way she can think of--by finishing his bucket list.  Suddenly, she’s doing things she’s never dreamed of--like jumping off waterfalls...and inviting the intoxicating stranger she meets in Las Vegas to help her with some of the more racy items on the list…

Noah Payne used to be a Navy SEAL…until his job cost him his family. Now he wants revenge, and he’s not above playing dirty to get it. His current mission—to find a missing shipment of guns—is the last piece of the puzzle. But his only lead is Liam Prescott’s bucket list. Noah figures that by getting close to Liam’s sister, McKenzie, he’ll soon get his hands on the list. Only keeping his hands off a suddenly sexy McKenzie is turning out to be the real challenge!

Rogue is the first in a romantic suspense series by Brynley Blake.  Who doesn't love Navy SEALs, right? In Rogue, McKenzie's brother died while on a mission with his SEAL team.  She is determined to finish out his bucket list for him.  First on the agenda is jumping off of a waterfall in Costa Rica.  She didn't expect to get shot at while doing it.  Noah seems to wants to help her finish out the list, but he has completely different motives for sticking close.

This was a pretty quick read and while I did enjoy the book, there were things I had a hard time buying into.  I really liked the action scenes in the book.  The cave scene in particular was kind of terrifying and the reason I would never go kayaking into a dark cave.  I also really liked McKenzie.  I had to give her credit for being willing to do dangerous things to help fulfill someone else's bucket list.  That takes guts.  

What I had a hard time buying into was her hooking up with Noah.  She heads to another country to take a long boat ride along the coast and this guy she met for a few hours in Las Vegas shows up and happens to have the only boat available.  She never questions it, ever.  Did her SEAL brother teach her nothing?  She also assumes her brother's team mates sent him to protect her, yet she never asks him out right.  I mean, we all know he's a good guy, but she doesn't.  Anyway, I did ultimately like them together, even if the I love yous came a bit fast for me.

The book ends in a kind of a cliff hanger.  Hopefully in the next book we will get some questions answered.
