Ellie works for the Serafina casino in Las Vegas. Her lover, Jay also works there. They live together and everything is going great until Ellie’s past catches up with her. After that phone call, she packs a bag, leaves Jay a break up note, turns in her resignation letter and makes strides to move on. Her boss is suspicious as are her friends and her lover.
As her past continues to catch up with, her new group of friends try to figure out the pieces together on why she would disappear from a life that seems pretty sweet.

Ellie has to protect the people she cares about and can’t let them get drug into her former life. But when she has to accept their help, she just hopes that she can keep them safe and that they’ll still love her when she finally comes clean. With her friends by her side they go up against a crime boss and her former lover both demanding she help them in a heist that involves all parties.

I had high hopes for this one. It was romantic suspense and I love that genre. Unfortunately, it never clicked for me. I was bored most of the time. This was very disappointing for because I loved the first book in this series. I’m undecided on continuing with the series.

This is the first full length novel in this series. I really enjoyed the prequel and has high hopes for this installment.

Risk is a former SEAL on his first assignment with the Justiss Alliance and his job is to protect the daughter of a military man. She’s an animal rights activist complete with an arrest record for her actions. Risk thinks this is a baby sitting job and not real thrilled at first. He knows he needs to prove his worth to his new organization so he vows to take this job seriously.

Addie Wunder is a little extreme but devout in her beliefs. She fights for the abuse of animals and she’s really quite successful at it. But she has gained enemies, yes in the plural form. She’s a pistol and nothing is going to stop her from her purpose. Not even the bodyguard her father has put on her tail.

This was a very cute book. I adored the characters and the storyline. You take a big carnivore and the animal rights activist vegetarian and pair them together and watch out. The cat and mouse game between them is entertaining and hilarious. I will never hear the words zucchini and radishes without giggling. This was suspenseful and hot. I already have the next book loaded and ready but with a release for May, I have to wait a while to read it.

This is a prequel novella to spawn a series about five ex-Navy SEALs. After a mission that was a clusterfuck, these men were discharged but thankfully not court martialled. Even though they were not responsible for this screwed up mission, they were the ones that were blamed to appease the masses. To avoid jail time they had to sign contracts forbidding them to talk about what really happened on that ill fated mission.

As they are leaving the courthouse, a man approaches them with a job offer. He is the founder of the Justiss Alliance and they handle what sounds like protection and black ops work. He leaves his cards with each of the men and asks them to consider his offer.

At this point, you get a glimpse at each of the men in this SEAL group. Some of their home lives and if they will join the Justiss Alliance. These men are named: Risk, Rath, Saxby, Knox and Julian.

I can’t wait to read this series. I have the first one loaded and ready on my Kindle. I hope they are as good as Maya Banks’ KGI series or Cindy Gerard’s Black Ops Inc. series. I love romantic suspense and I adore military romantic suspense. This prequel had no sex in it and I do hope the series does. If it doesn’t, well that’s just stupid.
