    Awesome

    Awesome read and a great beginning to a new series. It's a wonderful romance but it is filled with action and suspense as well. Great characters and pace make this one a must read! Ethan Brodie is all kinds of hot and can be my bodyguard anytime! He's an ex-cop working personal security now. His current assignment proves to be interesting indeed. Protecting lingerie models is tough duty and the no fraternization policy might prove to be a problem. Especially when it comes to Valentine Hart! With a psycho leaving notes containing death threats he can't afford to be distracted!! I highly recommend this one.

    Well-written

    The opening sentence in this book sets the stage for gripping suspense and action as well as a sweet romance and is an exciting start to the BOSS, Inc. series. Ethan Brodie's experience with his ex-girlfriend has soured him on the thought of relationships, especially with very beautiful and high maintenance women. When he takes on an assignment to provide security for lingerie models on the receiving end of death threats, Ethan's resolve takes a major hit once he sets his eyes on gorgeous model Valentine Hart and no matter how hard he tries, he can't fight his attraction to her. When one of the models is killed, Valentine's safety becomes Ethan's number one priority and not even the possibility of losing the security contract will keep him away from her. Valentine (aka Valerie Hartman) took on the modeling job to fund vet school, but she is in no way prepared for the cutthroat world of modeling and being the target of a deranged stalker. Even with their less than friendly start she trusts Ethan to keep her safe, but she can't wait to finish out her contract. Unfortunately for Val, things are not going her way because her promotion to the position of the brand spokeswoman means she's getting drawn further into a web of deceit, danger and intrigue, and she'll need Ethan's skills to stay alive. I was eager to read this book from the very moment I saw the cover and I wasn't disappointed. The characters draw you in completely into the roller coaster ride of suspense, intrigue and even emotional entanglements. I enjoyed Val and Ethan and especially loved how Val kept him off balance. She is smart, strong and very assertive but she's also very aware of her limitations and is willing to let Ethan take the lead on keeping her safe. I loved Ethan's protectiveness of Val and that he realized how special she was without letting his past affect how he felt about her much. The suspense was well-written and kept me guessing the identity of the perpetrators, as well as their motives. Gunfights, action and sexy models make for interesting times in this this book. However, I have to say that the first part of the book dragged quite a lot for me and it took me a while to get through but once the action picked up, it was non-stop and kept me engrossed, with the added bonus of setting the scene for the next book in the series. I'll recommend this book to anyone who loves a blend of romantic suspense and contemporary romance. Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

    Into the Fury

    Excellent read. Looking forward to more BOSS Inc. Books. They promise to be equally as good as Martin's Against the ... series.

    Contemporary Romance with a Murder-Mystery

    Having read and loved one of Kat Martin’s books previously I was eager to read this book. I was not quite as impressed with this story as I was with “Against the Tide” but wonder if that had to do with it being the first in a new series that required introduction of many characters or if it had to do with so much going on in the book that it sometimes seemed to drag a bit. Ethan’s expectations of Valentine Hart, a beautiful lingerie model were blown to smithereens as he got to know her better. Ethan, in charge of the security detail hired by La Belle, had the task of supervising a team of men working as security for the models. Val’s thoughts regarding Ethan were also challenged over time and she was also required to rethink a previous stance she took when a teenager. Ethan and Val were drawn to one another from the beginning but with a no-sex clause in their contracts to keep them apart it became interesting at times. In addition to the story of the beautiful models and hunky security team going on tour across the USA there was a murder and a mystery or two to solve before the end of the book. The introduction of Dirk and Meg was made as a prelude to the second book in this new series. I am looking forward to reading the second book as I liked the characters and the plot sounds intriguing. The story was interesting but I did not find anything new in the story and it had a LOT going on – perhaps more than one story should deal with to be as tight and concise as it needs to be to hold the full attention of the reader. That said…I enjoyed the book and do look forward to reading the next book in the series. I also was reading an ARC and wonder if there will be additional changes made before it is released. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this book to read and review. 3.5 Stars
