Strike One


You have bored me out of the gate...

This book starts with weather, specifically multiple pages on the difference between the weather in Colorado, Atlanta, and Miami. Quite frankly, my dear, IGAF.

Then I get details on her neighbor, Mrs. Elizabeth Stanton, who's lonely, a widow, a mom and grandmother, mid-sixties but looks and acts like she's forties, is friendly but not prying or nosey, etc etc ... Again, quite frankly, my dear, IDGAF about details on some random 7th string character

I can't believe it took me this long to get round to this book. A.D. Justice sent me an arc a while back..a long while back and for some reason or the other I kept putting it aside and saying I will read it later (Sorry!)But this was getting ridiculous and I said to myself I will definitely read it next and tadaaa I did and I really enjoyed it!

This is book 1 in the Steele Security Series and its the story of Noah Steele and Brianna Tate.This book is filled with suspense,

Holy hell!! I absolutely loved this book!!

This is the first book I read by A.D. Justice, and I was pleasantly surprise. I was hooked from the first page and I didn't put it down till I was done. Yes, I read it in one sitting and had to start the second one right away, yes, it is that good!!!!

I really liked the writing, the storyline and the characters. I loved that it's written in dual POVs, so we get both sides of the story. Steele Security is formed by a group of former soldiers who created

Last night I read A.D. Justice’s book Wicked Games. This is the first in the Steele series. It is definitely a thrilling book and one that pulls you in and makes you want to read the sequel now. I can’t wait until the sequel comes out.
His characters come alive in his book. You are kept on the edge of your seat as Brianna comes out of the Witness Protection Service to help her lover, Noah. Three years ago, she was an investigative journalist on the trail of a big story. She went to the Middle Ea
Narrator: Deb Booth

The Narration: New narrator for me and I am impressed. Some may find her voice too old for the heroine but I always like those sultry voices and if the heroine is too young for a voice like Booth's, I doubt I'd be interested in the book.

I hope Booth will be narrating more. I'd love to have narrating the Karen Rose books.

The Story: started out good but tumbled downhill soon after. I find it implausible that Brianna would not trust Reaper

I kind of read A.D's books backwards. Having read Wicked Ties first and loving it so much, and completely falling in love with Bull aka Colton, I went back to read Noah & Brianna's story. A.D. has created a series of hot as hell, captivating, lovable, story lines in the Steele Security Series. I love these guys. I can't wait to read about Rebel and Shadow next. A.D's books are page turners that kept me guessing, with just enough steam and just enough angst. A.D. Justice has turned me into a ...more

WoW! What a whopper of a story with all the espionage of spies, lies, corruption, and breach of security, OH MY! AH yes, lust and love in the form of a sexy nosey investigative reporter and Hot-O-Licious ex-military leader gone security.

Brianna Tate a.k.a. Bri: alias Kristina Miller, Leslie Solomon, and Briana Steele, has become a woman on the run. For her 'running had become her addiction and her only way of dealing with the pain inside'. And for good reason.

I can't get enough of this series and it's only the beginning!

I've been eyeing this series for quite some time and and I THRILLED to picked up Wicked Games!

We are introduced to Noah (Reaper), as well as to his "brothers", and the steam coming from these HOT, SEXY, ALPHA males will make your kindle melt! So beware!

We are also introduced to Brianna, a smart as a whip, logical, selfless reporter.

These two meet under unplanned circumstances, forced apart, come together again, and forced apart again.

Wicked Games grabbed me from the first page and didn't let go.
This is a must read book.
It has drama, angst, intrigue, romance, hot sex, and redemption.
I was literally flipping pages before I was done to see what happened next.
Brianna and Noah are characters we all can relate to.
Wicked Games is a page turned that proves when you love someone with your whole heart you will do whatever it takes to keep them safe and also that you can't help who you love.
My opinion, MUST READ!
5 stars!

Is there an irony in this author's name? This book is certainly about justice. After a few twists, turns and false starts, the good guys win. Betrayed by a friend, the main characters, Briana and Noah, fight for justice, their lives and their love. This exciting romance novel contains violence, mystery, corruption, betrayal, friendship, and a lover's conflict: an intoxicating combination that keeps the reader turning the page in suspense.

The novel opens with Brianna realizing that her cover has

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.

In this book we meet Noah and Brianna. When this story opens up Brianna feels like she is being watched and realizes that the place she calls home is not longer safe. So she will need to change her identity again and run again. After that first chapter we find out the story of how Noah and Brianna meet and how they have come to find each other after that first meeting. We also learn why Brianna is on the run from someone that isn't sure is the

Wow without give away to much let me just say that Wicked Games was truly and unexpected surprise. From the moment I began to read I could not put it down.This book keeps you on the edge of your seat and ready to see what happens next.

The main characters Noah or better known as "Reaper" is total alpha male. You fall in love with him from the first moment you meet him. When we first meet him he is active duty special forces but them as the story progresses he owns his own security business.

I really loved this book. It has everything in it. Suspense, romance, sadness, joy, way more than one plot twist. Just when you think you have it figured out, WHAM! If you love hot Delta force Alpha males, strong, intelligent female leads, and a story that doesn't let up for a minute, this is your book. And the last line of the story will make you go "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

I had wanted to read Wicked Games by A.D. Justice for a while now and finally was able to. I can’t believe I waited as long as I did to finally pick up this action packed, suspense filled, keep you on the edge of your seat book. It is all of those things and so much more. Now it did take me a little bit to really get into it but don’t take that as a negative, there was a lot of information to digest at times but

This was an amazing story from the start; nothing about this story sucked at all, ok well besides all the horrible things that happened to the main character that really sucked and I felt so bad I had tears going down my face :) I really liked how strong the main character Bri is, she's this amazing strong and fearless person that doesn't hold out on doing the right things for the right people.

LOVE, LOVE, FLOVE this BOOK! This is one heck of a book. I was hooked right from the start. Brianna was an investigative reporter that fell in love with Noah while she was writing about his unit overseas. They had a great relationship until she found out one of his partners was up to no good. She ends up disappearing into WITSEC until her safety is compromised and she sneaks back to Miami. This is book one of the series and is definitely a series I am so excited to read. Noah runs Steele Securit ...more

Wicked Games is AMAZING!!! I couldn't stop reading it! This story grabbed ahold of me and didn't let go. Wicked Games is so much more than hot sex....It has the perfect combination of suspense, twists, love, and heartache. I smiled, cried, and almost threw my kindle across the room. This is a must read!! Honestly no words can describe just how much I love this book. Do yourself a favor and "experience" Noah Steele :)

I am so. Darn. In love. With this book!!! It just kept my interest and attention from the beginning to the end. There was not a dull moment. I just literally can't stop reading! It was packed with action, romance, heck even comedy! I loved every single bit of it. Emotions. Gone. Haywire. It's the kind if book you get hunches on what's going to happen next, yet you still want to know how it actually plays out. It keeps you on your toes and at the edge of your seat.

Where to start. The premise was good. Ex spec ops military running his own security company. The heroine coming out of Witness Protection to save him.

Should have been great. Unfortunately, while I loved the characters, it wasn't for me. (I almost did not finish at 25% in and it's only my damn OCD about finishing a book that kept me going). My biggest issue (and what's making me really hesitate to buy a new author now) is the 'third person present narration' that was going on through out the who

I loved this book. It had romance, friendship, adventure, military/security men, intrigue, danger, and great love scenes! The dialog was well written and the characters had depth. I loved how the story involved Brianna going to the overseas military post as her way meeting the men in the story. She was able to develop relationships that affected the rest of the story. I also loved how Brianna was a strong heroine. Too often, contemporary romances include a "broken woman needing to be saved". Whi ...more

Right off the bat, this book was the type to make me picture a very vivid movie in my mind while reading, so I was completely engrossed in it. Another thing I loved is that very quickly, I felt what Brianna were feeling ( even if I didn't know what was going on ). There are so many things going on and holy jeez, is there a lot of action !!!!
The author did such a fantastic job of developing the characters while laying out the plot. A story like this, with so much going

This story had suspense, mystery,angst, deception and love all rolled into one.

Noah and Brianna's story is one of finding one another only to losing each other.

Brianna is a journalist and with her father's help lands an interview that could make her career. They meet on a top secret base.Brianna spends time with each of the men, Rebel,Bull,Shadow, Judge and Reaper.They grow to share a bond, they even give her a nickname.

I really don't understand how this book got so many 5 stars reviews, bringing it to a score of around 4.30 stars on GR. I mean, 4.30 is a very high score on GR, and this book was so far away from what one would expect from such a high rating. Many times it reads as if it was written by a high-school student (or maybe that's the explanation, and the many 5 stars reviews came from friends, colleagues etc). The plot was good, but very poorly written. I only finished it because I was curious what el ...more

Let me start with THANK YOU!!! I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. This is not a book I would normally purchase (I am not a big romantic suspense fan). But, I now realize, I did not know what I was missing all this time. I fell in love with this book. I want my own Reaper. I laughed, I cried (a lot), and I fell in love. This book sucked me in at the very beginning. From the prologue you are drawn in and the story begins. Towards the end, I thought we had reached the climax, and ...more

Bloody book made me cry, first with sad tears, then with happy tears.

Brianna is such a brilliant character, and selfless doesn't begin to describe her! Her courage and bravery made her such a great character, she was a real pleasure to read. Noah and his team are all hot ex military so there's no question I loved all of them, well not Bull to start with, but what the brothers did at the end set me off crying again!

What a wonderful adventure and action packed book that was. Noah stole my heart from the beginning. This story has its ups and downs but it always come backs to Noah and Brianna and how there connection is strong even after everything they went threw. I loved all the steel boys.
