Bang Shift is a name that comes from some of the possibly shady mercenary work that Brody "Brutus" Jackson does on the side as he works as a mechanic in a small town. Its a nickname that the other guys he works with jokingly call it. Brody meets up with Alexandria Collins and her son who have been hiding under FBI/Witness protection for ten years. He meets her when her junk car needs a tow. She's scared of big guys and guys in groups for a good reason but she likes Brody right off the bat. Brody is not only attracted to Xan but he's afraid that he knows her from somewhere; but he can't remember. He lost years of his memory after an accident and now his new assignment is to protect Xan and her son. Looks like this is going to be a tough assignment for everyone.

I really had mixed feelings about this book. It started out really well, with action right off the bat. That really was a good setup for the story; I liked that. Things were moving right along and the story was flowing and I was enjoying it. Both "Brutus" and Xan were attracted to each other and the pull and their resistance was I thought pretty well written. Xan's son Scott, was well filled out as a character as well. There were some interesting secondary characters as well, Roxie (Xan's neighbor)and "Bear" another guy from the Bang Shift group. There's a story there about Roxie and Bear.... And Roc who works with the group? Doesn't sound like a good guy.

The language in this book is not clean and neither is the mental POV from Xan and Brutus; it was like listening to mental foreplay. And when "Brutus" and Xan finally did something about it, then there were page after page of very descriptive, rough sex. It like the story stopped while this went on.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This was a great story-line idea.

Xan Bradley is a woman in hiding from her abusive (murderous) ex-husband. She's wary of strangers - especially men, protective of her son and has trouble letting people into her life.

Brody is an intriguing man, with an uncertain past. He works as a mechanic in the small town that Xan and her son move to, but his real job is as part of a team that does "secret" government-type missions, and his latest assignment is Xan.

I will say that the Witness Protection story line is terrific. The characters are well developed, there is plenty of suspense and conflict, and there's a surprise at the end, that I DID NOT see coming.

It was a really entertaining read.

There was A LOT of sex - This didn't bother me, I've read books with more sex, and some of them not nearly as well-written.

But.

Xan and Brody were literally unable to control themselves when they were together.

I understand passion - really. But seriously? Lady, you are in fear for your life. You and your son could be in danger, and you are completely unable to be in the same room with this man, because your clothes will start to fall off.

I can't tell you how many times Brody told himself not to be alone with Xan, because she couldn't control himself.
How many times Xan swore to herself that she would resist Brody, only to find herself overcome with lust.

Don't get me wrong, it made for a steamy good read. It was just a little silly that they couldn't be in the same room together without going at it at least once.

All in all, I recommend it - It was a great story, if you don't mind lots of sex and swear words.

Okay, so I'm a New Yorker. The "F" word is like an often used vowel, or verb in our vernacular, BUT. Here I am about 5% into this book and I am already turned off. Xan is a Mom with a 16 year old boy, stepping into a mechanics shop with all these alpha males. (My bro is Army, so I KNOW how they love their curse words) BUT these guys just let fly with all kinds of "pu**y" and F-bombs in front of the kid and a very skittish woman. A very skittish woman who also likes to curse.

I cannot believe this would be a desirable set-up to a book.

Then she somehow (even though she is afraid of men) finds the neandrathal sexy in a "HOLD ME DOWN AND F**K" me kind of way.

Not my idea of Romantic when I was searching for a good Romantic Suspense book. If I wanted low-class smut, I would have bought it!!

While the synopsis of the book really drew me in, in the end, I was disappointed and halfway through the book, I almost just wanted to delete it from my Kindle and move on to the next book. However, I persevered and here are the things that I didn't care for.

Brutus/Brody: Unfortunately, I didn't care for the hero that much. For someone who's supposed to be getting close to the heroine in order to protect her, he's not doing a good job. Instead, he spends 40% of the book or so giving the heroine mixed signals. Yes, he wants to have sex with her. No, he doesn't. Yes, he does. When they finally do establish a sexual relationship, he makes it clear that there's no commitment; yet, he acts as if he owns her. As for getting close, why not start by being a friend first? What's all this Me Tarzan, You Jane thing happening.

Xan: Granted, this poor woman hasn't had sex with a man for 12 years so I can understand why she'd be so attracted to Brody. But woman, have a little pride. Granted, Brody is not as bad as her ex-husband who tried to kill her, but Brutus kind of lived to his name. He had no finesse when dealing with Xan and for the most part, didn't really treat her well, especially after they first had sex, where he kicked her out. Yet, when the opportunity came for her to be with Brody again, she took it.

The Mercenary Group: Brody is supposed to be part of this Mercenary Group, but the group itself seems to be a joke. Assignments seem to be handed haphazardly without any real briefing. Brody goes off the reservation to get more information about Xan without consulting his boss? This does not seem like a well-oiled team to me.

The Colonel aka the Boss of the Mercenary Group: What an ass!
