This was my first Kennedy Layne book and it won't be my last. It had excellent characters in it with a creepy bad guy to boot. The romance was definitely swoon-worthy and the suspense kept me at the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read more! Highly recommend!

Disclaimer: I got a paperback for a gift.

My Rating: 5 stars

High heels, suits and Trouble!!!

First off I love Layne's books. This one was a little less action packed than the previous two books which is the reason for my 4 star rating. The reason I believe it was less action packed was due to Brody being more of an IT nerd than a person who goes into the field. That said though, the writing and story flow beautifully!!

Brody is given the assignment to protect Remy, after the man who brutally murdered her sister is released from a mental institution after a

The Queen of Security has delivered again!

Hot Climate, sun lounger and Kennedy Layne perfect sunbathing material!

I loved Brody and Remy. Remy is my new alpha female. She's strong, independent, hell bent on revenge, doesn't need the man but learns she wants him and doesn't need to be alone.

As with all The Queens work, we are delved into a world of storytelling at its best. Like a case, you follow one lead and BAM it takes you where you'd least expect.

I sense danger for all the team with the Mos

Could. Not. Put. It. Down. Seriously the action and passion kept me glued to it.
This was an intense story. First we have the team hunting an escaped serial killer then we get an assignment to protect a woman from a the released killer of her sister. Remy is dead set on revenge and can't seem to move past it. Brody is more laid back and is determined to protect her. We stay on our toes the whole time with this book.

Remy thought peace would finally come after four years, instead she got the news her sisters killer was granted patrol. It bothered her, four years equate to a young life taken. She was watching his moments, till her boss interved and hired a place and protection for him. Brody his first assignment with Safeguard. Information is getting out and a friend of hers has been attacked, trying to draw her out. He is illusive will it ever end, and readers will be surprised by why.

Great Story

Remy's worst nightmare has just been released from the mental ward after only four years after killing her sister, she doesn't want protection but once she meets Brody she might change her mind. I hope as shocked about who was the person leaking information about who was protecting Remy.

Excellent, must read!

Just finished reading Brody and Remy's story. Wonderful and very gripping. Heart pounding fast passed romantic suspense. The book had a twist that had me guessing on who was the inside leak was , that came out of left field. Do not want to mention in case anyone who sees post has not finished. Can't wait till July.

A perfect pairing of murder and romance!

I really adore this team of guys and the hunt for serial killers is always great. This book was really good because we didn't really know until the end who was betraying our team. Bravo Kennedy another fantastic book. Can't wait for Sawyer and Camryn!
