No woman ever affected Red Stone Security expert Kell Malone quite like Charlotte Bastien. It’s been a year since that incredibly intense night they spent together and he still can’t get her out of his head. When he discovers she’s in Miami—with their three-month-old son—he’s stunned. Hurt. He’s also determined to know his child, and if she’ll give him the chance, to make ...more

This series just rocks. Stronger and hotter with each one. Katie is such a talent.

Suspenseful and sexy, this was another enjoyable read in the series! I loved the familiarity between Kell and Charlotte. They had been apart for a year, changed, and yet they still craved each other with such intensity. They were good together – both very likeable characters, but I didn’t like that she fought her feelings for him. Still, I was happy they got their HEA.

Don’t know whose story is next, but I hope to see Vincent soon.

I can't get over the heroines actions in this. I'm currently in the middle of a really difficult pregnancy so I can almost understand not telling him when she was pregnant, because you really do have to avoid any kind of stress. BUT no way in hell does she have an excuse for not telling him for the first three freaking months of the baby's life! He will never get those first three months back. It

Overall.... 4.0

I only listen to audiobooks while I'm doing my household chores each week and honestly, I try not to spend too much time in those chores each week. As a result, it can sometimes take me over a month to get through a full audiobook. That's a bit too much time to invest, but that's where this audio was perfect for me. I'm a romantic suspense girl and with just over 3 hours of audio on the unabridged version of this story, it was perfect for m

I have enjoyed all of the books in the Red Stone Security series and this one is no different. Kellen (Kell for short) has been in love with Charlotte since he first met her, however, she was married to another man and one of Kell's friends, so he kept his distance. Time passes, Charlotte's husband passes away, and we learn they were headed for divorce due to his infidelity. Kell and Charlotte spend a night together that neither of them can forget. He tells her he loves her, but she runs. A year ...more

Kell is working a security detail when he spots a woman he has not seen in over a year, a woman he still wants and yearns for. The problem is that just like the last time they were in the same room together she repeats the same action and moves as far away from him as quickly as possible. Charlotte knows that she has to finally tell Kell about Reece. She just wants to do so under different circumstances than a party she is attending with her family. Kell is the perfect caring alpha in that he wo ...more

ABOUT THE BOOK: No woman ever affected Red Stone Security expert Kell Malone quite like Charlotte Bastien. It’s been a year since that incredibly intense night they spent together and he still can’t get her out of his head. When he discovers she’s in Miami—with their three-month-old son—he’s stunned.

I was a bit apprehensive prior to starting this story. As a general rule: I do not like my romance mixed with children, pregnant heroine, or newborns. This is my rule. Typically the romance tends to be overshadowed by the children, impending birth, or life with a newborn (too real life for me). I am happy to state the author did not fall into this trap. Yes, the baby is a part of the story but more secondary to the plot than the main focus-just the way I like it. The author does a great job of b ...more
This one wasn't my fave. Not enough action for me. Too much baby talk, I mean, come on, the kid is 3 months old do you really have to hold him every second of the day? I was annoyed. I have 2 kiddos myself and there were other things for us to do, like perhaps a swing, bouncy seat, play mat, tummy time, etc.

Also, absolute #1 rule was broken for me...if you know who the daddy is TELL HIM! He has every right to know. NOT 3 months later! IMMEDIATELY!

So yeah, not my fave, but still a good read.

4.5 stars

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t always love secret baby stories, but since the baby is still so young, and Charlotte supplies a very believable explanation, I let it go and really enjoyed these two.

Charlotte loves Kell, and Kell loves Charlotte, circumstances have kept them apart because Charlotte wasn’t ready to love again, but once she’s back with Kell and with their son right there bonding them, they both learn to love the idea of being in love with each other.

I really enjoye

Today I saw at my email pile that this book was out and I immediately grabbed the opportunity to read it.Once again Katie Reus outdid herself.I really liked it I would just prefered it to be longer and also the two main characters needed to spent more time together.I felt as though their relationship was rushed!!!
PS:I forgot to read the previous book(I don't know hhow that happend)but I plan to read it soon(as in,in two days matter)!!!
Short Military Romance

This book wasn’t bad but I can't say it was very good either. While it did have potential, I just never felt any sort of connection to the hero or heroine. Their relationship and chemistry just seemed forced. I never even got what their attraction was for one another, etc. There wasn’t must action and it seemed to drag at times, even for a short book. The plot was easily predictable as well. I don’t think I'm going to continue this series from here. They are getting where t

This book is Kell and Charlottes. These 2 had a something a few months back but then some how they lost track of each other. Well Charlotte is now back in Miami and has a son. She lets Kell know he is the father and of course Kell wants them both to move in with him.
After something happens with Charlotte can Kell keep her and his son safe?
Will they get their forever after family?

There is a lot of Action , Love and Devotion in this story . Very well written indeed.

This is the 5th book in the Red Stone Security Series by Katie Reus and I loved it! Just like all of the other books before it in this series, this one if full of action and suspense with some hot and steamy romance thrown in.

I absolutely loved Kellen in this story. He is the perfect male. Hot, sexy, strong, loyal, protective, and would do anything for the woman he loves. I really liked Charlotte's character, also. She went through a lot in her first marriage, but came out stronger and wiser bec

I love these books so much. So many alpha-male-protector books make the women insipid, weak, and stupid. None of the women in the Red Stone Security books are anything close. They are smart, strong, and can take care of themselves. They may get themselves into situations where they need the men to rescue them, but not by their own fault. Case in point from another book in this series. Protector (doing his job), kills a man. Said man's brother vows revenge. Sees that protector is dating someone, ...more

Antoher awesome addition to the Red Stone Security Series.

I love how some people can come back togther and piece things back to the way they should be.
Reece kept a secret that I dont think I would have been ever able to keep. When it finally comes out, she witnesses something that takes her away again.

Kell knew what he wanted. He had a plan to getting it. But things did not go the way he needed them to. Plans changed. Kell had to put things aside for awhile. But he was not going to give up.

Kellen (Kell) & Charlotte. Book 2 Story #5 in this 2 book in one Kindle buy. Suspenseful and sexy, this was another enjoyable read in the series! I loved the familiarity between Kell and Charlotte. They had been apart for a year, changed, and yet they still craved each other with such intensity. They were good together – Loved the ending with family all together... musdt read to fill in the time frame in-between
Fay Ann Hollcroft
I think these books are just PHENOMENAL!! Another 5 for book 5, & again everything flowed wonderfully.

I'm reading these first 6 books via 2 boxed sets & am already loving them! They aren't hurried & rushed. That's one reason I personally don't enjoy novellas or novels under 100 or so pages. The suspense is there, the romance is there & everything flows just right when more is written.

Thank-You it was GREAT!

Another good novella added to the Red Stone Security Series.

I’ve enjoyed every book Katie has put out in this series. She creates good strong characters and though each book is stand alone and focuses on new lead characters she seems to always find some capacity for those we’ve already read about.

I love that Katie seems to always have a back story with these characters; one of my biggest issues with a lot of Novella’s and even some full length Romances is the instant love between the hero and t
I listened to this and it was a little under 4 hours. It is good for the length. Being this short there wasn't a lot of character development, but that was what I was expecting. A lot did happen in that short a time and sometimes it is good to read a short book between some longer ones.

I’m loving this series. Installment 5 was A-MA-ZING.

Charlotte was a great character. She was cool under pressured, a fast thinker and that save Reece and her life. She was adamant in not falling in love with a man that could break her heart or base the relation on lust, but her body betrayed her mind in the best possible way. I wouldn’t be scurrying away from Kell.

Now Kell… That was a determined man. The man knew what he wanted and didn’t mind succumbing to sex to get his prize. I was expecting
Romantic suspense, secret baby and a second chance? Sign me up please. This is getting old but I really am enjoying this series. Quick reads that don't feel that way, that draw me in from word one.

3 to 3-1/2 Stars. A bit too much crammed into such a short book. Besides the main issue of Charlotte witnessing a murder, there is the drunk sister, the nutjob stalker, the gang and the cartel. Good characters and story but a bit underdeveloped.
I don't read a lot of romantic suspense, but the few books I've read by Ms. Reus in the Red Stone Security Series are excellent. I do wish they were a bit longer (they feel about 75,000 words, although that's a complete guess on my part), because I enjoy spending time with the characters and would like a little more interaction with the secondary characters.

This book begins with a "secret baby" but I really liked that the heroine has approached the hero quickly after the birth and with somewhat
Sometimes i need to turn off my brain and need a quick, fun, sexy read. Finished in a couple of hours and enjoyed the hell outta it. On to the next one!

I finished this story last night, and by the end of book 4, I was seriously debating whether or not to even read #5. I decided to just because I'd already invested myself in the first 4 stories, so why not just finish out the series?

I seriously hope that I never again have to read or see the phrase "inner walls". Isn't there any other euphemism that can be used? The other thing that got me was in book 3, the Caldwell father's name is Richard, but in this book his name is Keith?

I am loving this series of books and I'm flying through them pretty quickly as I'm so eager to get to the next story.
Another similar story, but this time is a baby with mama to Kell, his son but not his wife, while Charlotte witness a guy killed another, the line just the same
It was ok :) I liked that a lot of the other characters were in it :D
