The Ward Security Series is a spin-off of the Unbreakable Bonds Series.

Geoffrey Ralse is known for being the life of the party. He loves the club scene, hanging with his friends, and flirting with whomever catches his eye. He certainly isn’t going to stop living his life just because some would-be stalker starts sending him threats.

But it all changes when Geoffrey is drug

The Unbreakable Bonds series is most definitely one of my favourite series so I really wasn't sure what to expect from this spin off series.Could Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott equal that? The answer is,most definitely if this first book in the series is anything to go by.I loved everything about this and,as usual,the writing and story telling was totally on point.

I have been on pins and needles ever since I found out, that these wonderful ladies, we're gonna write a spin-off of the "Unbreakable Bonds" series. All the books from that series have made it to my "favorite reads" list, so my expectations for this new series was pretty high.

I stayed away from this book for months and months because of the cover and title. I don't do slasher flicks, and the word "Psycho" screams horror.

But while Psycho Romeo IS romantic suspense, it's far sweeter than a slasher flick and has no slashing, not really. That's not to say this story isn't a little scary, because it is.

Geoffrey, who invented a dating app that made him very wealthy, is a social media star. He parties with his large group of "friends" almost every night; he posts what

Woooaaahh, this was one AMAZING book!

Right when the book started, I was sold by Geoffrey and later on by Sven. They were both sooo strong characters. The incident with Geoffrey shook him up so much that it left him reeling and feeling violated. But the efforts he put it to rebound from the dreary mood and the safety and comfort he surrounded himself with in the form of Sven, and then the efforts Sven put forth to bring the cheerful, saucy Geoffrey back, all this made me realise that their story

They couldn't have been more opposite in personality, size, income bracket... pretty much everything.
Except for the loneliness.

The twink and the gentle giant... Who would have thought they would be the perfect match?

Geoffrey hides his ingrained loneliness behind his sassy party boy behavior and not only that, but basically everything that defines him. None of his so-called 'friends' knows his true self and only when somebody suddenly becomes obsessed with him and stalks his every mo

This book has so earned a place on my elusive favorites shelf. I can't seem to get enough of Sven and Geoffrey.

-------------------------

I LOVED this one. This duo can’t seem to stop writing amazing stories.

This is a spinoff of The Unbreakable Bond series and while this can be read as a stand-alone, you would be missing out on a part of background if you skipped that series.

We met Geoffrey before as the happy twink who was crushing hard on Snow, and then flirting endlessly with Sven, the bodygua

"He'd kill for his inhaler to open his airways up, but the bodyguard was a great stress reliever."

Yup. What asthma patient needs an inhaler after all that smoke when you have a hot bodyguard at hand? And that pretty much sums up my experience with that book. Sven had a magic dick allright. Geoffry's life was at stake many times but he acted like an immature, horny puppy, thinking about fucking his bodyguard in the most inappropriate times.

Flat characters, mediocre suspense plot,

Between the cover and the title, I expected this to be a darker read. It's not what I got, but I'm not left feeling disappointed.
This book pushed all my guilty pleasure buttons.

***2.5 Stars***

I absolutely love the Unbreakable Bonds series so I've been really looking forward to this spin-off. Especially knowing that the first book was going to feature Geoffrey, our energetic and flirty twink, and Sven, our quiet and hulking Viking boyguard.

However, this book was clunky and repetitive.

There were too many times where I was easily distracted....and the repetitiveness of the constant mention of the size difference between 5'5 Geoffrey and 6'7 Sven got real old, real fast.

**4.5 Stars**

Geoffrey's got a creepy stalker. One who is leaving cryptic messages on his phone. When things escalate, he turns to Ward Security for help. His one demand is he wants Sven as his bodyguard. Sven, whom he can't keep his hands off of during self-defense classes. Sven, who stars in his late night fantasies. Sven, who keeps Geoffrey's wayward hands at a distance. But Sven isn't as immune as he thinks. Geoffrey, the blonde twink who has a social media following in the millions has been

Well crafted MCs
Good chemistry - in fact they were super hot.
Great banter - sassy Geoffrey



with his quick grabby hands



and quiet and taciturn Sven,



couldn't be more different but that was the beauty of it. They really meshed.
Now, the bad news: the suspense and mystery were crap. There was no thrilling moments no fluttering feelings, no butterflies, I didn't feel scared for Geoffrey - even in the final moments, meh.
On another note, I had a blast buddy reading this with Karen, Chri

Spin-off of the “unbreakable bonds” : what made me enjoyed this previous series is all there. I like the trope with the bodyguard with some suspense and very hot MCs, so I enthusiastically dived into this one with Karen, Simone, Josy and Jan (IKR : great company !!...not to mention, great visuals) and was not disappointed.



Geoffrey is a Golden party boy and is all over the social medias. It’s fun, until it’s not fun anymore : one night, he got drugged and lost the memories of a secret “admirer” p

I'm all for the strong, silent type so it's a no brainer that I was going to fall hard for Sven and I was a little worried I wasn't going to be too crazy about Geoffrey. How wrong I was! They say dynamite comes in small packages and Geoffrey is all dynamite. Strong, resilient, knows what he wants and works for it. A total cutie and just what Sven needed.

Loved it!

4.5 stars for the start of the spin off series .... and I loved it ! Geoffrey was the victim of a psycho stalker where threats, notes and photos were being left for him. He got scared enough that he contacted Ward security and asked for Sven, the 6’7 Norwegian Viking - Geoffrey’s dream guy. Of course there was banter between these two in Ian’s book but Sven remained stoic. However once the threat became physical and the 24/7 bodyguard role became a friendship the chemistry was undeniable and fin ...more

Spin off de la serie Unbreakeable bonds, de esta leí dos libros y me parecieron los plots tan absurdos que decidí no seguir. Pero, soy débil, y lo he vuelto a intentar con esta serie. Y las razones no pueden ser más superficiales, uno de los protagonistas mide más de dos metros, enorme, y con man bun y barba, noruego. El otro es muy bello y bla bla y por supuesto mucho más pequeño. El grande es guardaespaldas y al otro le persigue un stalker. Lo que dije, soy débil, no puede haber más cliché y y ...more

Perfection!

There may be spoilers for Shiver Shatter Torch Devour from the Unbreakable Bonds series if you haven't read those yet.

Right, having had time to sit and digest this book, I have to say I don't think it could have been more perfect at telling the story of Geoffrey and Sven, two characters who appeared on the sidelines in the Unbreakable Bonds series and almost >< stole the show in their respective roles.

I've been pushing for #Geoven since Sven, all 6ft 5in plus of Viking gorgeousn

Not bad, but didn’t wow me. Reminded me a lot of the unbreakable bonds series.

I thought the suspense aspect was sub-par at best. The romance was better. But I still wasn’t super invested in the MCs.

And much like the unbreakable bonds series it leaned towards the cheesy side at times.

Simply put, I got bored.

Geoffrey's sassiness and Sven's reluctance to admit that he is into Geoffrey was fun at first. But when you almost reach half the book with them still toying around like teenagers, it gets kinda boring and repetitive.

Plus, the mystery stalker seems kinda lame. I mean, the idea was great. But the execution could have been done a little bit better IMO. Everything seems like a child's play. Like a plot that is over-sweetened. Even with the stalker and the "dangers" i

I really enjoyed the Unbreakable Bonds series and loved all its main characters. I was delighted and worried at the same time when the news about a spin off series came. Of course, I wanted ‘more’, but we all have seen spin offs go seriously wrong or end up as pale imitations of the original.
I needn’t have worried.

We met both MCs of Psycho Romeo as secondary characters in Unbreakable Bonds.

This is Sven and Geoffrey's story and ever since I read about them in the Unbreakable Bonds series, I knew that I needed to know more about them. They intrigued me so much. And it was everything I wanted.

And to be honest? I liked this a tad bit more then the other series. Their chemistry was off the charts and I loved all the action that was involved. Sure, I was hesitant to get into this because I wasn't sure if they'd - Jocelyn and Rinda - be able to pull it off after writing so

Geoffrey big heart, smart kind responsible and lovable. His family aspect ...his brother I wanted more.

Sven. Just wow! He was such a beautiful character (the giant aspect was overplayed) I loved everything about him, kind, beautiful inside and out, protective and simply precious. And his sis...awesome!

This was my first book by these authors and it was an entertaining opposites attract romance between intense bodyguard Sven and his outgoing client Geoffrey.

I did like both main characters, especially Geoffrey. A self-made millionaire at a very young age, he has cultivated an online persona that doesn’t fully represent him and has garnered him a group of hangers-on, none of whom he is sure are really friends or people he can count on.

Finished and omg, I could not put this down. The relationship between these two sparked and sparkled and lit up the pages.

I absolutely adored Geoffrey and Sven together. I fell in love with BOTH of them.

As much as I didn't care for the short stories following the Unbreakable Bonds books, I desperately want the same short stories for this one.

We all know I devoured the Unbreakable Bonds Series, so resistance was futile when it came to this spin-off Series.
Whoever said that size doesn’t matter, was spot on. I’m sure that sexy Sven didn’t originate from Norway, but from Brobdingnagian and libidinous Geoffrey from Lilliput, but boy-oh-boy, did they fit! 😉
You have to hand it to these two authors, they certainly know how to create the right pairing with their book-couples, with stalwart Sven trying to swerve off Geoffrey and Geoffrey goin

At the risk of sounding like a gigantic grump, I hate the pseudo-celebrity culture of YouTube “personalities”, Instagram “models”, and reality “stars” (see, I can’t even refrain from being a jerk with the quotes). As we are introduced to Geoffre
