Blurb: Former Special Forces medical sergeant Russell “Red” McKinley knows a thing or two about wounds, like the fact some can take a lifetime to heal, if they heal at all. The scars Red carries run deep, and living with PTSD often means battling the memories of his past. Injuries he received while working an executive protection case with fellow Kings and co-owners of Four Kings Security, have once again forced past heartaches to the surface, but Red is determined not to let it derail his blossoming romance with sweet and sexy fashion photographer Lazarus Galanos.
Laz can’t deny there’s something special developing between him and Red, but Laz has wounds of his own. He’s hesitant to jump into a new relationship after his recent explosive breakup. Experience has taught Laz to doubt his judgement when it comes to men. Guys who seem too good to be true, usually are, and no one appears more perfect than Red.
When an attempt is made on Laz’s life, Red is determined to keep him safe. Laz may not be a client, and Red is still off duty, but Laz is one of their own, and nothing means more to the Kings than family. While an investigation is underway, Red and Laz are growing closer, but can they find a way to help each other heal and take a chance on love, or will their fears and insecurities cost them more than their future together?
Review: Each book in the Four Kings Security collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Laz and Red have the hots for each other, but neither have made a move. Laz had met the guys when they saved him from a nasty piece of work that he had called a boyfriend. Ever since then Laz has wanted Red and only Red. He can’t trust his heart but it seems his head is not working for him either. He knows in his head that not all men are the same, but damn things are just getting crazy for him. Not to mention someone wants him dead.
Red had watched his brothers in arms die and now he was trying to get his head on straight. He has gone through the sessions with his doctor but one little problem and he is back in the past. He has wanted Laz from the start but well lets just say Ace is going to help him. This might just get real interesting.
I came across this author with another series of hers and I was fascinated by the worlds she creates and the guys that she writes about. Hot and sexy with that added danger attitude in them, and damn I want me one. You get excitement, adventure, danger and some hot loving in this book and so much more. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. The story is fully developed and have a entertaining story to tell.
I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. Ace should set all his friends up, he just seems to have the crazy down pat. I would definitely recommend this book, trust me it won’t let you down.
