Received for an honest review

Kacey's newest release doesn't disappoint. The story will pull the reader into a wanting to find what is next even though I kind of figured out a possible how earlier on but the when... Oh goodness... That was unexpected as well as few other parts...

The characters, plot and storyline was amazing, overall this was an easy contemporary romance that will have some enjoying on how the story unfolds.

Ms. Hammell's Canadian Muscle series gets off to a rousing start with this exhilarating blend of suspense and eroticism. Add in a drool-worthy hero who is a born savior and an independant woman with a damaged past whose combustible connection scorches the pages and you have an exciting and fast-paced read.

As a reader who loves scarred heroes I was instantly drawn to Gavin with his limp and damaged hearing due to his wartime duty. In promise to a friend he starts working as a bouncer/bodyguard in

Guarding Midnight is a exciting read that draws the reader in and keeps you gripped right until the end. The plot is exciting with lots of suspense and danger as well as a wonderful romantic storyline that is full of love and lust. I really enjoyed this book, the story flowed really well and the main characters were likable and realistic. This is the first book in the Canadian Muscle series, and I look forward to reading more books in this exciting series.

I had never read anything by Kacey Hammell before but this book sounded great so I just couldn't wait to read it.

This is a sexy and quick read (at about 132 pages) that sure kept me reading and I didn't want to put it down. Good thing this book isn't a long one because I ended up starting it at around 10pm and I just couldn't stop reading.

Guarding Midnight is very well written with amazing plot and story line.

I highly recommend this.

This is the first book ive read of Kacey Hammel's. Fornit being a novella it was load full of lots of suspense, romance and spicy hot sex. Its had to be one of the best contemporary romance's I've read in a while.
Gavin was an injured army vet working as security at his friends sister's erotic dance club. When Gavin began working he had no idea what he was getting into. He knew he was there to protect the Midnight, main star and Charlotte aka Charlie from uncertain terror. Hagen who was pushing t

Guarding Midnight has some of the best characters I've read lately. You have the recently retired due to injury military man Gavin, the exotic dancer Shree aka "Midnight" , club owner Charlie and some really nasty bad guys.
The chemistry between the main characters is off the chart. They both know better but they cannot stay apart and their relationship builds at a steady pace. The suspense level and the escalating danger to all the characters keeps the story moving along. I will admit I had a ha

I received a free copy of this book from the author.

I'm not familiar with this author and don't read Contemporary all that often. However, I did enjoy this book and it was entertaining and read in 1 sitting. I've read a few bodyguard/dancer books over the years and this was a bit different and I really liked it. Gaven and Shree have had a time of it in their own pasts which kinda made them perfect for each other and together they can overcome their pasts and get through the s*** storm they are c

This story was full of suspense, mystery and a hot couple. Gavin and Shree both have traumatic pasts that they can't escape but maybe together they can overcome it. That is until someone wants to take over the club they both work at ad threaten everything. Shree and Gavin didn't expect to fall in love but sometimes the best things happen when you don't want them to or when you stop looking. I couldn't put this book down until I finished it and need to go read the next one right now!!!

If you love a wounded hot alpha ex military romance with some suspense in it this book is for you. This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. Not only did we have strong alpha males but the female characters we're all so strong. While this was a novella the author did a great job it's still having a full and complete story. If you're looking for a short read that feels like a full-length novel with some hot characters and some suspense you will want this book. ...more

Shree has pulled herself up by her bootstraps. She has almost completed getting her nursing degree. She is so close to obtaining the start of her goals she can taste it. She doesn’t have time for love. But meeting Gavin takes her slightly off course. Gavin isn’t looking for love. He is just helping out a friend while he tries to figure out life outside of the military. Especially since an injury cut short the career he saw for himself. Shree isn’t what he expected. And getting her to listen is ...more

When does a hero stop being a hero? Kacey Hammell pens a gripping tale of a retired soldier, wounded and struggling to find his path once again. When a buddy calls in a favor, he sets out on a new mission that brings him face to face with exquisite beauty, riveting danger and nail biting suspense. The heroine is a survivor of her own accord, has a plan, incredible talent and unwavering determination.
Gavin is a fierce protector whose arms I want to be wrapped in to shelter me from evil. Shree is

this book is good ... it's not a full length book but it is a complete story!
I bought this for several reasons ... I love finding and supporting CANADIAN romance authors
and the synopsis was exciting, thrilling, sexy!
honestly, I was hoping for more from this story ... it was entertaining but I was a little let down! not sure I can explain that without spoilers so lets leave it at that.

This is a fabulous story filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense and pure, raw sexiness. I enjoyed this title from beginning to end. And the playful banter between Gavin and Shree seemed so realistic. Since this is the first title in the Canadian Muscle series, I will definitely be buying the next. Can't wait! ...more

This was a sexy, fast paced thriller of a book. I loved the fact that neither the hero or heroine were picture perfect. They both had pasts, so even while they were fighting something outside of themselves, it was fulfilling to watch them battle their own demons. I highly recommend this book <3
