Hells Yeah! That is what I'm talking about...... OMG Dirk's book!!!!! I fell in love with Dirk when I read, Into the Fury, the 1st book in this series. I knew his book was next and I almost went crazy waiting for him, because patience is not my virtue. So when I saw it on Netgalley

5 - "I never knew you were such a trouble magnet." Stars!

Ill openly admit that curiosity was 100% the reason I requested the ARC of Into the Whirlwind having seen so many positive reviews on-line for it, and having a little gap in my schedule, I thought 'what the hell' and decided to give Kat Martin a whirl.

And I am so glad I did, this book was an absolute roller-coaster from start to finish, some of the twists expected, some not-so-much, but all really enjoyable and relevant additions to the st

I love a great book when you get a bodyguard and a chick in trouble or hostage situation. Intense feelings brings out the passion in people. I also love it when an author can capture that intense feeling and pass it along to the reader, like the author does in this story.

This book has a ton of action and plenty of highs and lows. The author brought us a free-flowing story with memorable characters and plenty of heat along the way.

This book is a part of the series and while I did not read the fir

ARC provided by the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book starts slow, but please hang in there because the build up is like going up the hill on a roller-coaster. You are not going to want to put this one down. It grabs you and won't let you go. If the first half of this book was as good as the second half it would be one of her best. But the first half had me skimming dialogue and if someone had said, "She's his mother" as a justification for letting Meg do what sh
Oh for crying out loud - get it right art department! The hero of this story, Dirk, has a dragon tattoo leading up to his neck and a mustache. Major fail.

After reading to Chapter 18, I can't continue. Dirk is great; Megan, not so much. Yes, I know her son has been kidnapped, but it doesn't excuse her whiny, spoiled brat behavior with Dirk.
He'd been convinced they had a future. She had known all along they didn't. She had thrown his care of her back in his face, and aside from the sex she had off

Into the Whirlwind (Book 2)

Into the Whirlwind is the second book in Kat Martin's BOSS, Inc series. If you haven't read Into the Fury (book 1), that is okay. It isn't NECESSARY to read the first book in order to love Into the Whirlwind. HOWEVER, I would totally recommend reading both books because they are just that good. Dirk and Meg were secondary characters in Into the Fury and I was SOOOO excited to learn that they would be getting their own s

ARC Review

There are moments of good romantic suspense here. When the story works, it really works. There is action, adventure, and a good amount of sexual attraction. Unfortunately, the story gets bogged down by repetitious dialogue. She hurt him, he hurt her and now both suffer through bouts of insecurity. I know I'm in trouble when I start to skim through the conversations. Perhaps part of the problem is that there is too much going on in the story. The narrative starts off like gangbusters w

What a great book. It had action, drama, chemistry and suspense all wrapped up in this book about Megan and Dirk.

Megan is a single Mom who just had her son kidnapped and turns to the one person she cut loose because she wasn’t sure he was ready for her instant family and because she didn’t think her parents would approve of him. But the chemistry between them is strong.

Dirk is a man of many talents and when Megan comes to him for help to fin

I thought this was an awesome read! Mystery, suspense, sexual tension, add in a cute as heck kid and you have Dirk and Megan's story. We first met these two in book 1 of the BOSS, Inc series and now they are being reunited under very strained circumstances. Megan knows she hurt Dirk when she broke up with him but she thought what she was doing was for the best. Now she desperately needs his help.

Woo hoo! Back to being the books I love to read.

Dirk and Megan had a hot and whirlwind romance that ended after her protection detail did with a we are too different speech. Now that Megan's son, Charlie, has been kidnapped she knows the best person for the job is Dirk and she will swallow her pride to ask him for help.

Dirk has tried for 5 long months to get Megan off his mind and out of his heart and when she pulls up to the house he is rebuilding and comes up to him he knows that it is bad.

When former high fashion model, Megan O'Brien discovers her beloved son has been kidnapped, she is obviously frantic as the note left behind instructs her that involving the police will cause the end of her son's life. The only person she can trust is former bodyguard/lover, Dirk Reynolds, but Dirk took their breakup badly, so even being in the same room with Megan is tough to handle. Putting all ill feelings aside, Dirk and the team at Boss, Inc do what they must to sift through the intrigue to

Meh, at best, with a couple of you've gotta be kidding/fling the book across the room frustrating fails. I expect—and usually get—much much more from a Kat Martin romantic suspense. This was a disappointment that I won't be keeping to read again.

My problems started with the characters. Megan is a shallow Rich Girl with so many TSTL moments that it was tough to like her, much less identify with her. Dirk is inexplicably named after a knife, has an oddly fashioned mustache, and is into extreme tat

BOSS Inc. book two by Kat Martin which is part of her Brodie's Universe. Into the Whirlwind follows Dirk and Megan who started their romance in the last book. Fortunately, while it helps to have read the last book it is not imperative to follow the story. I really enjoy Kat Martin books, the action is always a grabber the romance is heartfelt and combining the two is always well thought out; especially when you are dealing with high tension situations. When I read the synopsis for the
Desperation isn't a good colour on anyone, least of all, a former model.

Megan O'Brien's only hope - or so she makes it out to be - when her precious son is kidnapped is Dirk Reynolds, the man she'd heartlessly cut loose because he hadn't conformed to her ideals of family and the approval of her parents. What follows is rather predictable - Dirk isn't able to resist her pleas at all despite wanting to keep his distance - and the trail that opens up after her son is rescued is a far more interest

A sexy, suspenseful read by one of my favorite authors! This is Dirk and Megan's story, which began in the first book in the Boss, Inc. series, Into the Fury. Dirk was Meg's former bodyguard when she modeled. They had a brief and heated affair, but Meg abruptly broke off their brief romance because Dirk's free-wheeling and dangerous life style wasn't exactly compatible with the life of a single mom to a three year old boy, Charlie.

But when her son Charlie disappears and the kidnappers demand $10

INTO THE WHIRLWIND is a fast-paced romantic suspense that leads you on an adventure filled with plenty of twists and turns. This is the second in Ms Martin's BOSS, Inc series and though I hadn't read the first installment, it didn't detract from my enjoyment of this story.
Dirk is a sexy rough around the edges hero who can't say no when Meg asks him to help her deal with the kidnapping of her young son. She and Dirk had a fling a few months back, but she hadn't seen a future with Dirk and she re

Torture, kidnappings, suspense and drama abound in the second BOS Inc. novel. This time Meg and Dirk are given a second chance at a happily ever after when Meg requests Dirk’s assistance in finding Charlie, her kidnapped 3 year old son.

This is definitely a page turner with plenty going on during the story but I have to say I was pretty sure who suggested the kidnapping fairly early on in the story. I also felt at times that too much was added in just to lengthen the story and add more drama tha

I really wanted to like this story - kidnapped kid, two mismatched people thrown together with the common goal of rescuing said kid. Unfortunately the plot is handled unevenly enough - and the dialogue executed in a cringe-worthy enough way - that most of the potential here is wasted. Meg and Dirk (really? Dirk?) have a history - he loved her, she rejected him - so he is the last person she would go to for help. Unfortunately, he is apparently the only person she feels she can trust who would be ...more

This is the second instalment in the BOSS Inc. series “Into the Whirlwind” and can be read as a stand-alone. It’s the first book I read by Kat Martin and the story didn’t disappoint.

When her little boy gets kidnapped ex-model Megan O’Brien sees no other alternative than to turn to the only man she really trusts, her former bodyguard and lover, Dirk Brodie. And though she hurt him deeply six months ago when she dumped him and ripped out his heart he will do anything to save her son.

I really like

Amazing Book!! I was so looking forward to Into the Whirlwind not only did I love the first book of the series but I love Kat Martin and have never read anything I did not like from her.

Dirk and Meg were in the first book from Boss Inc and the passion and relationship is never easy with a single mom but they overcome it. And Charlie (Meg's son) is a brave adorable boy. This is a must read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but it was much more of a suspense book than a romantic suspense. There was honestly very little time that Meg/Dirk took to get to know one another outside of whatever they already knew in their short-lived previous romance. The book seemed to focus on the kidnapping of Meg's son and the rescue mission(s). That being said, I still thought it was great and reminded me a lot of Maya Banks books in the KGI series (former military guys travel to foreign countries to r ...more

Book two in the Brodie’s, B.O.S.S series. We met Dirk and Meg in: Into the Fury. Meg breaks it off with Dirk and hard core Dirk gets his heart broken. In fact he gets a tattoo of a broken heart on his chest to remind him not to fall in love.

Meg has a three year old little boy who means the world to her. Dirk is a PI and all around, man’s man, ready for any fight. Not the kind of man who would make father material. Meg has fallen for him hard but feels it is best to walk away. Charlie is kidnapp

I seriously enjoyed this book. Getting reacquainted with Meg and getting to know her son was interesting and an Intercal part of the story. Of course Derek played a major role as well and the more I got to read about him the better I liked him.
