Something I'd really like to see is more interplay between characters from past books, as they are all connected somehow (there currently isn't much interplay at all). It'd be nice to see how the previous relationships are progressing, but they are barely mentioned. In other words, this book could maybe be read as a stand alone if you aren't interested in the whole series. The only problem would be the following:
The reader never actually finds out who Emma is in danger from. The mystery hangs over the reader's head the whole book, building anticipation, only to let them down at the end. While Dave may be the one doing the dirty deeds, we never find out who his boss is or why they wanted Emma dead in the first place (aside from wanting the USB drive and laptop, which is incredibly vague). The reader never finds out what information on those two devices was so important that it was worth killing someone over. The reader never finds out exactly why Emma is suddenly no longer in danger at the end of the book or anything about what the heck her cousins did to 'fix things'. The reader is left hanging in a way that they haven't been with any of the previous three books. Hopefully book 5 will clarify all of this, but I'm worried it could end up being too little too late.
Jace tries to push her away but there is chemistry between them and the cousins hire him to cover up some information. Things get interesting when they come up against someone Joslyn was blackmailing.
Don't want to give to much away so you will enjoy the book as much as I did. This is definitely a must read.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Mallory Crowe for the opportunity to read this.
In the aftermath of Joslyn Devaroux's attempted murder of wealthy businesswoman Victoria Green, heiress Emma Devaroux and security specialist Jace Lance are brought together under a veil of deceit that could destroy their burgeoning relationship before it's barely begun. Throw in a bit of suspense courtesy of the machinations of Emma's sister Joslyn and her hired thug David and you have the impetus that binds Jace and Emma together despite her anger at his perceived betrayal. Told in alternating POVs readers are given a glimpse into both of the main character's lives which had me finding them likable and enjoying their increasingly steamy romance.
Emma could've lived up to the stereotype of the snobby rich girl but she was anything but. She was determined and strong-willed and gave as good as she got when it came to Jace. With his military background Jace was a loyal man, torn between his initial duty to Victoria and later on to Emma's cousins. Ultimately, as his feelings for Emma grew deeper, he became her champion protecting her from Joslyn's manipulations. Jace and Emma might've started off adversaries but with the danger increasing their interactions became crackling with fun and flirty banter leading to steamy interludes.
Overall this was an entertaining story with appealing characters that made for an engaging and suspenseful tale from start to finish.Read more ›
This is the 4th book in the series, and although each is a standalone book, some of the characters from the previous books do appear. This story features Southern debutante, Emma Devereaux, and Jace Lance, security/bodyguard specialist. We also meet Emma's cousins, Luke and Michael, who play a secondary roles, but are crucial to the story line. Others have provided a more thorough synopsis so I won't.go into great detail.
The main premise of this book is Emma trying to find insight into why her sister, Joslyn, would attempt to kill Victoria Green, billionaire CEO of a hardware company. She meets Jace by accident, likes him, but later finds out he was present when her sister was arrested. She hires him anyway to help her sleuth out clues. At times, I find Jace's decisions/actions inconsistent with that of a SEAL and security expert, like when he agrees to also work with Emma's cousins, to prevent her from finding out certain information, and especially at the end. I guess because this is an ongoing story line, there are certain events that occur without depth of explanation. I enjoyed the flirty banter between Emma and Jace, and the way Emma confronted her cousins.There were some loose ends that weren't really wrapped up, and the ending seemed rather sudden. I look forward to reading the next book to see how the story progresses.
