Julia’s Review:

I think my heart has finally stopped beating out of my chest. This was an intense ride seeped in danger. During a routine prison transport Annie loses three convicts and gets a bullet to the shoulder. Six months later she’s scrambling to find the three prison runaways and meets Jackson West. West is a former Navy Seal and now runs a security firm. Sparks literally fly when they meet and the chemistry between them gets hotter and hotter throughout the story. I enjoyed seeing a female character in an alpha role, Annie fit perfectly with West and his alphaness. Both were badass, full of grit, and not afraid of going after what they wanted. Annie is riddled with guilt but plans to get these three escapees no matter what.

The slow burn love wasn’t actually too slow. West and Annie both have their reservations about taking things further yet they both work through them. Cynthia Rayne has a way with words that make you feel the full story. I felt scared, sad, guilty, happy, and lovey. This will be a series I’ll be following closely, I’m excited to see the others get their HEAs. Get ready to be sucked into a magnificent book, one where the characters pull at your heartstrings and the suspense has you heart beating out of your chest!

Life can leave you bruised

Former Navy SEAL, Jackson West, is trying to start over in the Bluegrass State. West had to choose between serving his country and being the parent his young daughter deserves. He’s formed Black Star Security with his military buddies, and they’re gonna kick a little @ss. For a price.

Sometimes you need a second chance

Deputy U.S. Marshal Annie Foster accidentally got her partner killed during a routine prisoner transport. Now three dangerous felons are roaming the Kentucky countryside, and it’s all her fault. Black Star Security is hunting the fugitives, and Annie’s assisting them, even though she’s devastated by the mistake she made. But she didn’t count on West, a big, bad alpha male who’s an intoxicating mixture of ruthless and tender.

Will they capture the escaped convicts? And will West and Annie take a chance on each other?
