Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Ian is happily married, owns an amazing business, is going to classes for foster parenting and has friends who are like family to him. Life is good since being rescued years ago. But now strange things are happening. Bad reviews, an ice raid, an attack on him and two employees leaves Ian trying to figure out who has it out for him without letting the others know about it.

This is the last book in the series. I was glad Ian finally stood up for himself against the guys. He refused to be protected and tucked away while others handled the situation. I was truly confused as to why it took him so long in the series to do this. As with the other books in the series this is suspenseful, action packed and edge of your seat worthy.

I loved that despite what was happening to him Ian wanted to help the person doing these things to him. It was a great ending to a fabulous series.

Fantastic read.

After three years, Snow and Jude’s relationship is still passionate and strong. They’re getting ready for a romantic vacation at home when Jude receives a horrifying call no one wants to receive. His youngest brother was found barely clinging to life. While Jude’s family is rallying around Jordan, Jude is determined to find out what happened to him.

Snow and Jude follow the clues, investigating a side of Jordan’s life none of them knew about…and is far darker than any would have believed possible. They get pulled deeper into the seedy side of life, while echoes from a past Snow thought he walked away from return to offer an unexpected insight into the cause of Jordan’s injuries.

But someone else has noticed their involvement and is furious, putting them both in danger. The risk is high but so is Jude’s determination to find the truth—though the knowledge could very well fracture his heart.

Trigger Warning: This book has a scene that some might find triggering, but the triggers are also spoilers to the plot, so they can be found at the front of the book.

Blurb: Ten years ago, Dominic Walsh faked his own death. With no true identity, it wasn’t hard. But if he’d stayed, he would have been drawn further into a life he’d never chosen. He has friends and family at Ward Security now and has managed to escape his dark past. There is only one thing he truly wants.

Abraham Stephens.

When Dom was first tasked with watching over his friend’s father, he didn’t expect to fall so hard for the gorgeous silver fox. But Abe is interested in friendship only. He’s at a point in his life where he wants something permanent, not a romp with the sexy redhead who happens to be the same age as his son.

But Abe finds himself drawn deeper into Dom’s life when cryptic messages start appearing—ones that frighten the skilled security specialist. The more Dom tries to hide what’s happening, the more Abe wants to help him.

And maybe, just maybe, he’ll find a way to trust the strength of the bond Dom understood from the start.

ISBN: B07H7SJCXT

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Dom works for Ward Security and has made a good life for himself after leaving everything he knew behind years before. Abe is an older man that Dom has had feelings for ever since he was asked to be his bodyguard. He’s been trying ever since to get the mans attention.

After a job guarding an actor Trent Elrige, Dom’s past comes back with a vengeance. His only mission now is to protect everyone he loves from the one man that can destroy him. I loved this story. Romance, sweet moments, action, mystery and suspense surround Dom as he tries to tackle his problem alone. But when he’s taken all bets are off as Ward Security and Abe ride to the rescue along with Trent’s assistance.

I could not believe the lengths the bad guy went to in order to force Dom to his way of thinking. It was mind blowing and devious on a level that took me by surprise. The entire story was really intriguing and I was hooked from start to finish. I loved Trent’s character and hoe to see him get a man in the future as he deserves to live a happy life.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Now, they’re in a race to track down a killer, keep a young girl safe, and get Lucas back in time to say, “I do.”.

ISBN: B07D6GJ4Y1

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Let me start off by saying usually I am not a fan of using the same MC’s from another book in a separate book because well honestly you learn most all you need to know about them in the first book so the second seems lacking. Not so in this tale as it’s about Lucas and the gang, wedding plans and a visit to Snow and Lucas’ hometown.

There were times I wanted to get to the good stuff, action, and there were others were I wanted to know more about what was going on. But all in all it was a decent read with a fair amount of drama, action and love for all to keep reading.

Facing their pasts was hard for both Snow and Lucas who left many years before and found a new family for themselves. I loved the struggles portrayed as well as realizing the past can not hurt you unless you let it. Andreas jealousy was a thing of beauty for Lucas. There was quite a bit of characters who added to the story as it progressed.

All in all it was great read and addition to the series.

Blurb: Someone is trying to kill Marc Foster.

Attempted poisoning was bad enough, but when the would-be killer messes with the brakes on Marc’s precious Porsche, the art dealer admits he needs help. He just wasn’t expecting help to be quite so dark and sexy.

Royce Karras loves his job at Ward Security. He’s making up for a lifetime of bad decisions and a bloody past he’d rather forget. But Marc isn’t the spoiled rich boy he thought he’d be protecting. Sticking close to Marc as his “boyfriend” gives Royce insight into his toxic family, but it also reveals a brilliant, compassionate man who completely disarms Royce. Against his better judgment, Royce finds himself falling.

But can they find a way to make it work when Royce’s past threatens to tear their lives apart? Their future hinges on a lost Renaissance painting, six Bichon Frises, and a pornographic Robin Hood.

No worries, right?

ISBN: B07BF4L24Z

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: According to the blurb someone is trying to kill Marc. However once the cameras and bodyguard Royce are in place there is no long term investigation which shocked me. The most I read was Royce making sure the house was secure and keeping a watch out at night. He only checked the cameras once. Most of the book was centered on Royce and Marc’s relationship which started out of the blue.

There was a secondary plot as Royce comes face to face with his past and has to deal with that aspect as well. This book was not as good a read for me as the first two were. It almost seemed like it was rushed in certain places and filled in at the last minute in others. That’s not to say it was not a good addition to the series because it was.

All in all it was a good read.

Blurb: Geoffrey Ralse is known for being the life of the party. He loves the club scene, hanging with his friends, and flirting with whomever catches his eye. He certainly isn’t going to stop living his life just because some would-be stalker starts sending him threats.

But it all changes when Geoffrey is drugged and wakes up half naked in his own home with a new message from his stalker.

He needs help and there’s only one person he trusts…

Protective Agent Sven Larsen has been fighting Geoffrey’s flirtatious advances for months, even though he’s impossibly drawn to the man. There’s no way he can be around him twenty-four/seven and not finally crack. But one look at Geoffrey’s haunted eyes, and he knows there’s no way he’s letting Geoffrey walk out of Ward Security without him.

Even if it means breaking his own rules, he will keep Geoffrey safe.

Trigger warning: There is a very short section with sexual assault that some could find upsetting.

ISBN: B075QFW9FL

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: We met Geoffrey in the Unbreakable Bonds series when he was infatuated with Snow and helped Luca, Ian, Snow and Rowe. Now Geoffrey needs their help as he has a stalker that won’t quite. Worse yet this stalker is taking things physical. Geoffrey is scared and knows only Sven can keep him safe.

Sven has a rule. No fraternization with the clients. Even though Sven thinks Geoffrey is cute he holds his emotions in check. Bu when Geoffrey asks for him to protect him Sven can not say no as he does not trust anyone else to keep Geoffrey safe.

Suspenseful and intriguing this story leads you into Geoffrey trying to figure out who is after him and why while refusing to let the situation make him hide away. Sven has his hands full trying to keep the man safe. The stalker took me by surprise as I thought it was someone else. It was refreshing that I was proven wrong.

Intense with twists and turns this story keep you on the edge of your seat. Wonderfully written with the right amount of hotness between Geoffrey an Sven thrown into the seriousness of the plot. I loved it an highly recommend it. But I suggest you read the Unbreakable series first as it is connected to this series.

Blurb: Ian Pierce is the chef and part owner of the hottest restaurant in Cincinnati, his chosen family is full of happy relationships, and the scruffy, snarky cop who has been haunting his dreams is one step closer to being in his bed. But everything comes crashing down when the past he narrowly escaped nine years ago comes to a deadly head.

Hollis Banner was enamored of Ian at first sight. He’s kept his distance, knowing the gorgeous, self-confident man is out of his league. Yet there’s no standing aside when Boris Jagger escapes a raid. Jagger’s world has been nearly destroyed and this time, the crime boss is coming after Ian and his friends personally.

Hollis will do whatever it takes to keep Ian safe as they escape to a safe house with a couple of Ian’s overprotective friends. And Ian finds himself in a race to unlock painful memories—memories containing information that could take down the very last of Jagger’s illegal operations forever.

Trigger warning: Flashbacks to abuse could be possible triggers for some.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Ian is very thankful to Rowe, Lucas and Snow for saving him from a cruel life many years ago. But at the same time he is tired of being scared of the one man he was saved from: Jagger. When threats from Jagger endanger his family Ian gets fed up.

Hollis, a cop, has been in love with Ian for some time now. After finding out what the man went through he takes on a very dangerous assignment to bring down the man who caused Ian so much pain and still torments him. But things go wrong when they are found out.

I loved this story. Ian and Hollis were so great together and I found that the way Hollis never rushed Ian, sweet. The dangerous situations were heart-stopping and edge of your seat worthy. I found the mix of of emotions and dangerous to be a great combination to an already fantastic read.

Highly recommended.

Blurb: Nine months ago, Rowan Ward thought he had it all. Now he’s fighting to pull his shredded life together, buried in work and battling the kind of grief that destroys a man’s soul. When fires spring up around Cincinnati threatening Rowe’s friends and clients, he’s thrilled to find his old Army buddy, Noah Keegan in town. They were a hell of a team when they served together, so in-sync, it was rumored they could read each other’s minds.

Noah thought devoting his life to the Army would be enough. Then he realized he had no family and only one friend he cared about. When his enlistment was up, he found himself standing on Rowe’s doorstep, looking only for friendship but secretly hoping for more. He needs to know if their one unbelievable night together years ago wasn’t a mistake.

Caught in a dangerous game of fire and bullets, neither expects the inferno of emotion that ignites between them. One Rowe isn’t prepared to accept. One that could break Noah.

ISBN: B01J4JTZS0

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK 

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Rowe is still grieving for his wife when his old army buddy Noah shows up after leaving the military. The one time these men were together comes roaring back as long lost feelings are slowly rekindled. However, I have to say that even though I understood Rowe’s grief and reluctance with Noah it pissed off with the hot and cold game he played with him after each time they are together.

I did not figure Rowe to be someone to play with someones emotions after everything he had been through but that’s what it felt like he did until he got his head out of his ass. The threat to Rowe and the crew seemed never ending. Danger, action, suspense and some hot scenes are all throughout.

I was glad Rowe finally came to his senses considering how long Noah has had feelings for him. Even though I was mad at Rowe a good majority of the book I am happy with the end result.

The mystery part was outstanding in it’s explanations, planning out and execution. Fantastic read.

But when a ghost from their past returns to Cincinnati, Snow stands to lose everyone he loves. Framed for murder and reeling from attacks on his friends, Snow is pushed to his breaking point.

Jude Torres won’t let the doc shatter. The paramedic has been attracted to the doctor since he first laid eyes on him at the hospital, even if the arrogant, solitary man doesn’t fit into any of his plans. One hot, reckless kiss shows that Snow isn’t who he appears to be. And one night together will never be enough. Jude will fight for the doc.

Fight to keep him whole. Fight to keep him safe. Fight to simply keep him..

ISBN: B01B36VVDO

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This book is about the outwardly cold Snow or Doctor Frost. Snow’s character was a bit dark at times but I understood given his background. What surprised me was Jude, a paramedic was able to get through his walls to the caring man inside.

Jude was a strong force to be reckoned with. He wants the good doctor and so he goes after the man. Snow does not what hits him. I found it awesome that despite Snows firm control he knew when to let Jude lead.

Snow is a man with deep issues that often result in him needing something out of the ordinary. I really felt for Snow. He seemed almost lost at times. His connection with Lucas, Ian and Rowe is strong. A bond that will never die. He protects his friends at all costs.

When a ghost from the past emerges into the present Snow throws himself into discovering where the man is and finding out what he wants. When the truth is revealed sinister does not even begin to cover it.

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I was interested in this series after reading Psycho Romeo and figuring out quickly from the beginning that there were other books connected that came first. So I requested the series and I’m so glad I did as I was taken on a superb roller coaster ride of a great mystery/suspense series.

Lucas’ life is in danger and so his good friend Rowe, who owns Ward Security, sends Andrei as a bodyguard to protect his friend. Lucas and Andrei are attracted to each other yet Andrei fights it as he has a job to do. We learn about the tight bond between Lucas, Snow, Rowe and Ian.

These men are strong and fierce when it comes to protecting the others. I loved their easy going yet teasing manner with each other. Lucas and Andrei were hot together.

The plot and mystery were edge of your seat worthy with A few action scenes thrown into the mix. A wonderful suspense, drama, and action packed start to a an amazing journey into four men’s lives and the men they meet, love and fight along the way to find happiness at the end of the dark tunnel they find themselves in.

Fantastic read. Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I really liked this story about Quinn and Shane. The two fit each other perfectly. It was by no means an easy relationship when you both agree to only sex and it turns into more. But they managed and all the sex was hot.

The case was way more interesting to me than the relationship. It was very hush, hush. Even Shane’s partner did not know the details. A game of who the hacker is quickly leads to deception, murder and a secret so scandalous that it will ruin an influential man.

Danger, heart stopping action and romance all lead to a well written story. Though I personally would have liked a little more detail in the case itself rather than the relationship. Aside from that it was a great addition to the series.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.
