Cruce’s job is to save the lives of people who are important to the country. This time he has to protect the POTUS’s niece who is a brilliant scientist on the verge of a life changing breakthrough. But the more time he spends with her, giving his all to keep her safe, the more he falls for her. He can’t afford any distractions but Barrett might just be the one who’s worth it. 

I was so so excited for Cruce’s book. I knew he was one tough mofo who’ll do anything for this comrades. But I found out that he’s also the sweetest bear who just wants to love. I wanted to hug him and shower him with love because he was just so amazing.

Barrett might be smart when it comes to saving the world but she was dumb when it came to her own safety. She have me so much anxiety and I was constantly screaming at her to get her act together. I like her so much but by God she tested my patience.

The story was exciting and thrilling without a doubt. It had suspense, action and drama. My heart was constantly pounding for the last 30% or so. But I feel like the romance was a bit lacking. I couldn’t really feel the connection between Cruce and Barrett. That sort of held me back from truly enjoying the story.

But I’m extremely pumped for the next story. Saint is next and I am too excited for life.

3.5 Stars!

As a former member of the United States Secret Service, I’m no stranger to putting my life on the line in the name of duty. Having left the nation’s capital to re-settle in Pittsburgh, the skills I acquired during my tenure in Washington have made me a valued member of the team at Jameson Force Security. But when the President comes seeking a favor to protect his niece, I find myself on the fast track back to the Oval Office.

Simply put… she’s beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn’t believe she’s in any real danger, the President isn’t willing to take chances with her life.

As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I’d ever thought possible. When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I’ve fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I’ll rain down on those that threaten her.
