Release me from this hell!

I wanted so badly to like this book, but it's 50% rubber duckie fluff, 40% repetitive, and 10% substance <<< That just doesn't work for me.


Serial killer has rag-tag group of ex-military and special operations dudes, called Saints Protection and Investigation, on his tail.

Jack is the owner/leader. In addition to hunting a serial killer, he has a romantic 'she's specFingTacular but doesn't fit my lifestyle' that morphs into 'I still don't do picket fen

This was a decent read, H wasn't a manwhore that was a plus, h wasn't a virgin. The mystery keep me interested. I did guess who the baddie was, but the author did throw a lot of red herrings into the story.

I look forward to the books about the other guys, though I wish I hadn't had to hear how much of a manwhore some of them were since we will eventually be getting books for them and that info will stick in my head.

I enjoyed this one!

When starting a new series, there is the balance between continuing with some characters from previous books, creating new scenes and characters, while staying true to my writing style. All while hoping to keep my loyal readers following me and cultivating new readers.
I feel as though I have accomplished this with Serial Love. A spin-off series, you will see a few familiar faces, but mostly be introduced to a new set of men and women to fall in love with!

It had some good moments but ultimately, the caveman attitude turned me off.

There is a fine line between protective and controlling and this dude crossed it frequently. People are allowed to look at your love interest. People are allowed to talk to them. Your love interest is allowed to have friends and make decisions on their own.

ROUNDING TO 3.0 RATING- I just have no idea why I keep reading this author's books. She doesn't write with contractions which I'm guessing for some is not a big deal but drives me absolutely crazy. It really disturbs the entire flow of a book and overall leaves me scratching my head. Why do some authors do this? It's so painful to read! The author lures me in with her alpha hero's but this is my last read by this author.

Also, I normally don't mention covers, but hated this one enough that I

I've been itching for a good romance thriller since I finished reading all of Jennifer Armentrout's book. This was a free book on amazon today and it was, for once, a good book! Normally the free books are garbage but I really enjoyed this.

Jack never planned on meeting Bethany Bridwell, the granddaughter of the owner of Mountville Cabin Rentals next door.

This was as an absolutely phenomenal book. It kept me riveted from the first page until the very last. You will not get any spoilers here you will have to read the book. Jack is this strong, alpha male who protects those he works with and those he loves. Bethany is his neighbor who he develops feelings for. I love how this story kept you on the edge of your seat and how Maryann draws you into her stories and keeps you there

This was my first time reading Maryann Jordan and I am so glad I did. This was an interesting mystery with Jack, the head of an elite private security firm working with his team to find a serial killer in his home state. While Jack and his team dive deeper and deeper into the case he simultaneously pursues a relationship with his lovely neighbor Bethany.

Bethany is a smart, loving, feisty and independent female lead that you can't help but like. Jack is the super hot, all alpha-male sweetheart y

5 Stars!

When I stumbled across this author's Love series, she completely captivated me and since then, I just keep coming back. Her alpha males fight hard and love even harder. And one thing you can expect is when they fall, it is so hard that they will do anything they can for the women they love. And her heroines are always kick ass and you will always find yourself rooting for them. This is the first book in a brand new series by her that is definitely one you don't want to miss. Be prepared

I could not get enough of this book, once I started it I couldn’t put it down and devoured the entire series in one weekend.

Jack Bryant is ex-special forces and he’s just opened his own security firm. He’s a very private man and has a property that’s like a fortress, or so he thinks. He and his men are meeting when they realize there has been a breach on the property, an old woman. When they approach the woman her granddaughter, Bethany, jumps into to defend her.

What a riveting fantastic read. The first in a new series from Maryann Jordan. Jack Bryant was the ultimate man. Protective, smart and strong but not over the top alpha. Bethany Bridwell, a strong independent women, helping her grandmother run Mountville Cabins. neither are looking for a relationship, yet have problems staying away from each other. A serial killer is loose and Jack and his team are determined to find him before he kills again. When it becomes to close to home can Jack save the o ...more

I liked the h. Sweet but still strong and independent, didn't act stupid or immature and was straight forward. H was ok but didn't like the nicknames (doll, beautifull, darling etc). Sometimes I zoned out and tried to picture him in my mind while saying or doing something and just started to laugh. Bordering on too controling.
The whole Alpha male thing-"I know best,I am in charge, do what I say", but then he would do something sweet so it was ok.
I liked the plot-idea. Could've been ex

Maryann's writing is off the charts with this book. If there was any possible way to rate it higher then 5* I would.
Jacks life isn't the easiest to live being devoted completely to his job. He thought that his life could not have a constant woman in his life until he meets Bethany. While he is in deep with his current assignment trying to find a serial killer he questions on whether or not he should have a relationship with Bethany, at first he doubts it will work and then quickly changes his m

I absolutely loved this book! Maryann has done an amazing job by writing a book that draws the reader in and keeps them wanting more. I cannot wait for the next book in this series!

Jack has busted his butt to get where he is today. After training in the Special Forces and protecting people he knew he wanted to continue that when he left the army. He now owns his own business. He never figured he would have a family and a white picket fence. His mind gets confused when he finds a woma

Fantastic! Bethany loves helping her Gram work and run the family cabin rentals. After meeting Jack, and his alpha tendencies, Bethany finds herself interested in this unique man. Can Jack open up to her? Will he be able to protect Bethany from his job? Will he give her the world or shatter her dreams? Maryann Jordan's Serial Love was an excellent read!

I loved this book! What MaryAnn Jordan does so well is draw the reader in to the story, keeps your attention, and leaves you wanting more. Every book is fresh and interesting. Each leading man is irresistible. This book is no exception. Full of twists and turns and well written characters. Ablaze with heat and great chemistry. I am anxious to see where this series leads and for book two.
It was okay. Had some good parts.
It will it have you guessing who the serial killer is.
Likable characters.
Even though there was insta-love, there was some tense and angsty scenes between the characters.
Laura Johnson
Suspenseful read. There are twists that will keep you wondering what next or rather who is the serial murderer? The romance between Bethany and Jack is just enough sizzle to keep it interesting. I'm looking forward to read the rest of the men of Saints of Protection & Investigation;).

I cannot say how happy I am that Maryann has a new series. When I realized that I was coming to the end of the Alvarez Security books, all I could think of is "I need some more MJ books; I didn't want them to go away." I knew Maryann would come through though and she did spectacularly with the Saints Protection & Investigation books. For the first book in the series, Serial Love, I'm pretty sure I'm already in book love with Jack (Jacques) Bryant. The scenes where he was a little boy and com ...more
This book was picked for me for the EROS may challenge.

This is my first time reading this author, and I'm looking forward to continuing the series. Seriously hot alpha males, and of course a strong female character. Of course the criminal finds his way to the little cabins in the mountains to hide what he is doing. Kinda predictable story line, but I really enjoyed regardless.

I joke that I "cut my romance teeth" on the old historical romance books. I’ve written as a hobby for over 30 years. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma's Home was created.
