    Interesting RS

    Interesting romantic suspense featuring Mia, the gardener’s daughter and Lucas, the senator’s son. Both have dysfunctional families. The big mystery is a missing husband, 2 million dollars of embezzled pension funds and why someone wants Mia dead. Ares Security is a group of vets who band together to escape an Afghan prison and upon returning to civilian life form a highly specialized security firm. In the second book of this series Lucas discovers that Mia’s life is in danger. Everyone (except Rafe from Book 1 Kill Without Mercy and is on his honeymoon) band together to solve the mystery, catch the bad guy and live to continue to hunt for the evil that is stalking the team. There was a nice secondary romance between Mia’s BFF Taylor and Detective Cooper. Favorite lines: “There was something deeply sexy about a smart woman.” “It wasn’t until he was older that he realized what went on behind closed doors was pretty much the same no matter where you lived.” Intrigue Level -- 4 Stars Writing Style -- 4 Stars (It is always a good thing when my eyes don’t start skimming the page) Heat Level -- 2 Stars Total -- 3 1/2 stars

    As fabulous as the amazing cover!

    Lucas St. Clair was tortured and escaped from a Taliban prison with 4 friends, and they formed ARES security, and Lucas’ family’s political aspirations for him faded away. The same family who had made him break it off with the love of his life, Mia Ramon. When Lucas learns that Mia’s life is in danger, he runs to help her, she needs protection, but it’s been fifteen years, and Mia is not too happy to see Lucas again. Lucas, in breaking Mia’s heart, really did her a favour, but it didn’t look good. Mia has tried to forget Lucas, she has a good life, but Lucas never stopped loving her, and how refreshing to have a hero who did not supposedly cure his broken heart by sleeping around! Alexandra Ivy really nailed the second chance at love with KILL WITHOUT SHAME! Lucas has a really hard time convincing Mia that what he did was for the best, and that he never stopped loving her, and that he wants a future with her; Mia is recalcitrant, but in a very realistic way, and it was wonderful to believe in both of them, to identify with them, and to root for them. Mia finds it difficult to resist him, Lucas is seriously charming, but she is no fool and he will have to prove himself, and this is where Ms. Ivy’s impeccable sense of pacing makes it work so beautifully: nothing happened too quickly, there were no silly misunderstandings, no ridiculous push-and-pull; Lucas and Mia’s reunion is flawlessly realistic, and it made this reader very happy! I’ve always enjoyed Alexandra Ivy’s writing, and she’s better than ever: her prose is more beautiful, more nuanced, flowed more smoothly; what a delight! The dialogues are impeccable, and every character so well-drawn, I saw them all, I loved Mia, and I just love those guys! Lucas is bossy, it’s in his nature, but he is so very sweet, and tender; and the sex scenes, and the love scenes – yes, there is a big difference in KILL WITHOUT SHAME – are fabulous: Lucas is affectionate, attentive, giving. And Mia is a terrific heroine: she is an independent woman, proud, but not stubborn for stubbornness’ sake; she is strong, at least as strong as Lucas; what a perfect couple they are. KILL WITHOUT SHAME is fast-paced throughout, the plot solid and captivating, and I cannot wait for the next installment in this series. What more can I say: KILL WITHOUT SHAME is an excellent romantic suspense that should not be missed! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    Thrills, Chills and Romance.

    This installment in the ARES series is an edge of your seat thriller with a whole load of romance. Back home Lucas St. Clair has deep roots and big connections but he wants nothing to do with them. Which is why he left them and the only woman he had ever loved behind. But when Mia Ramon is threatened he will move heaven and earth to keep her safe. But Mia is wary of the man who broke her heart. And she is determined not to depend on him ever again. Unfortunately, they need each other to figure out who killed their friend and who now has Mia in their cross-hairs. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from NetGalley for voluntary review consideration.

    Action-packed Romance

    Kill Without Shame by Alexandra Ivy ARES Security #2 Another action-packed romance with murder, suspense, a bit of a mystery to solve and a second chance at love for Lucas and Mia was okay for me but did not have me as enthralled as the first book in the series. Lucas had Mia dated in high school but 15 years before the book starts he decided they should break up for her own good – without asking or explaining or anything. When he realizes she might be in danger he drops everything, utilizes ARES Security personnel (his buddies from the service) and goes to protect Mia. Needless to say Mia is less than excited…at least at first. Personally I would have given him the boot or made him work harder to get me back but she did what she did for her own reasons. They do get their HEA but only after quite a few leads are followed, their lives are threatened, a secondary romance takes place, hooks for future books in the series are set and the bad guy is caught. I have to say the story was well written if slightly predictable to me. I am not a great fan of second-chance-at-love stories because when I dated guys a second time the same things that were wrong with the relationship proved to be wrong the second time, too. Unless there is some major and believable reason for the separation, of course. I enjoyed the story and do look forward to reading the stories of Teague, Max and Hauk in the future. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy to read. This is my honest review. 3 Stars

    Kill Without Shame

    This is a story that will keep you turning the pages. It is written with the knowledge of how human nature plays out in different situations. There is an air of mystery, whodunit and a love story all of which make it complete.
