Seized by Seduction is Randi's story. I hope you enjoy.

#TooManyBooks you feel?
I was intrigued by the blurb and thought why not? Big mistake on my part.
Although I liked that ex-cons were trained to become protectors.
To the actual plot of the book I really do not know how likely that would actually happen. I guess that is someone as coldblooded as the villain in the book it is possible.
The main characters were there but for all that I cared they could have been replaced with any Tom, Dick or Henrietta. There was a lot of head b ...more
Intriguing cover? Yep. Riveting story line? Oh yeah. Character appreciation? Sure. Execution? Eh...could have been better....

A family member hires Lamar "Striker" Jennings to protect her from the underground monster bent on destroying anyone associated with the case, but neither is expecting the heat generated between the two of them when they go into ...more
Forged in Desire was just what I needed in a contemporary romance. This is a straight forward easy to read and enjoy romantic suspense book. Brenda Jackson always weaves a good story and this was no exception. I plan on continuing with this series over the summer as they are the perfect pick up and enjoy romances that I am always drawn to reading during the summer.

Tbh if I didn’t have so many other books on my TBR I was anticipating reading, I might have stuck with this one. The plot was intriguing enough to keep me interested, but that was about it.
Right from the start the writing felt off to me. It was choppy and stiff and the POV would change in middle of a scene, making things confusing. I didn’t get a good feel for the characters and honestly couldn’t care less about their budding romance.
Unfortunately this one missed the mark.
Striker is a ex con who has been assigned to watch Margo. I really liked Striker and hearing his backstory made my heart sad. He's a good person and is willing to do anything to protect the people he loves.
Striker and Margo are both attracted to each other but they don't want to act on it because they it wouldn't be professional. Eventually they do get together b ...more
Striker is pulled in to protect Margo after the criminal she convicts during jury duty threatens everyone in the room with death and people actually start dying. Margo and Striker are instantly attracted but wait a few weeks before acting on it. In the mean time, we get ALL their thoughts along the way. I am all for getting a littl ...more
Margo and Striker were an interesting couple. I was interested in their story and I liked it for the most part, but with some reservations.
There was an appeal in the idea that she was strong and independent, but needed to rely on Striker to keep her safe, although I found myself slightly annoyed with her at the beginning with the way she treated him. This resolves quickly, for the most part and I am not even totally able to say that her reac ...more
Between the random thoughts they thought or the random tangent the characters would go off on I soon found the story to be long winded. Not to mention the long winded dialogue that would slow the story to a snails pace. causing me to put the book down debating whether to finish it or not.
A lot ...more
Wealthy socialite sits on a jury which convicts the crimelord defendant. He threatens to have everyone in the room killed within 72 hours of each other until he is released from jail. Bodyguard is hired to protect her. Bodyguard is an ex-con who works with a team of other ex-cons to be "Protectors". (Um, I don't think that could happen in real life, could it, due to civil disabilities and the prohibition of them owning guns and ammunition? Hmm. ...more
It was also a lot.
Coco Chanel says take a piece of jewelry off when you leave the house.
This story needed a lot of jewelry to take off.
However, it was never dull. I just couldn't keep in the vibe of the story.
I love an over protective body guard.
But, I struggled with this one.
It was just too many moving parts.
*arc in exchange for honest review*
Me. Jackson has done it again with the Protector series book 1 . This journey starts out in a court room with a verdict and you are on your way for the most incredible ride ever. There are so many surprises that you can not stop turning the pages because you want to know what's going to happen next. I definitely recommend this book.
Forged in Desire, is not the book to write a reviewer on. This book has you wanting to run out and tell someone this is a book you have to read. There were secrets, twist, murder, you name it FID had it.
Once again Ms. Jackson has written a page turner which will keep you up all night.
