A large, metal crash sounded behind me and my gaze swiveled to the fence where Maggie had just crashed through the gate. The SUV swerved wildly in front of me, acting as a barrier for the incoming

It's getting harder to refuse a book. I had tried but I couldn't. Lol. I refuse to lose a good reading to get more hours of sleep. Call me crazy but I don't care.
I've only been following this lady for a few weeks but they were enough to make me a stalker. Lol.

Well, this is the fifth book of the series, "FOR THE LOVE OF A GOOD WOMAN" and if you've read previously from this author, Giulia Lagomarsino's other stories/series, then you would already know that this is about Sebastian and Maggie, both very independent, stubborn, determined and hard-headed people, who you can clearly see that they are made for one another and have feelings for each other yet they try to push and fight their feelings away.

Luckily, in this story, that won't fly any

OMG THIS BOOK IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!
I now have a toss up between Cole and Sebastian for my all time favorite book!
Sebastian is an absolute heart throb!
"That's probably a good thing, sweetheart."
"Don't call me sweetheart. I'm not your sweetheart or any other endearment."
"Maybe I should call you Gingersnap."
"I said not to call me anything. You can call me Maggie."
"Of course, you don't really have a ginger color. Maybe 'Red' would be better."
"No."

Action and heat! Sebastian was an amazing book. I loved all the action and mystery in it. This is the fifth book in the For the Love of a Good Woman series. I have really enjoyed this series so far. This book can be read as a stand-alone, but the stories are interconnected so to get the full experience I suggest you read the previous books first. This book is a romantic suspense novel.
The plot of this book was good. Maggie is a reporter willing to do anything for her story. She has a moral code

Sebastian is the owner of Reed Security, but doesn't go out in the field much anymore, preferring to stay in the office to take care of everything. However, that all changes when he's asked to protect a journalist named Maggie, who immediately becomes a big pain in his behind. See, she's come across a story that in the first 24 hrs of investigating, two attempts on her life have been made. So he becomes her bodyguard, and it's one hell of a journey, since on one hand, he wants her badly, but on ...more

Sebastian is book five in the For the Love of a Good Woman series, and TBH he was one of the ones I was looking forward to reading about. Sebastian runs a security firm and is hired to protect Maggie, a reporter whose story may be the death of her. Maggie stumbled onto a huge story, and she would not be a good reporter if she didn't try and get the scoop, even with bullets being fired all around her. When her boss hires Sebastian, the last thing Magg

This book is about Maggie, an investigative reporter for the Pittsburgh Press, and Sebastian ("Cap"), who is the owner of the Reed Security company. Sebastian is hired by Darren Hughes, the newspaper's editor, to guard Maggie since she is working on a story about political corruption and is in danger. I have to say that I have never read a romance book in which the heroine is almost killed so many times, but Sebastian keeps saving her life. There are several great chase scenes - by car and on fo ...more

What temperaments and what fire!
Very good story, very well written. I loved these extremely courageous and bold characters to uphold what is right. They have a fiery temperament, sometimes excessive. The story lacks neither romance nor action. Very good mixture.
Maggie is a reporter and investigates the mayor of Pittsburgh when she discovers his financial malpractices. Very quickly this one tries to eliminate her. She's under the protection of Sebastian and his security agency, but sh

Maggie is insane. She is so crazy just spending time with her will make you go crazy also or want to kill her as Cap goes through time and time when he finds himself acting as her close protection. I really enjoyed reading this beginning to their relationship. I actually read the second book in the Reed Security series before this one so reading this one second instead of first made it really interesting. It was great to learn the journey these two took to get where they ended up. They have been ...more

Sebastian: A Mystery Romance by Giulia Lagomarsino. This is the 5th book in the For the Love of a Good Women series. I have been waiting to read Sebastian and Maggie’s story, I love the chemistry and dialogue between these two. I thought this was a great story, one that you can fall into and be hooked for hours. I’m not overly fond of mysteries (I like to be able to anticipate what’s is going to happen) but I had a hard time putting this one down, so I could actually get some work done (work is ...more

What do we find Maggie doing at the beginning of this book? What happens? O….. M….. G….!! This book is HILARIOUS!!! I got a really great feel for Maggie's brand of crazy reckless in this book. Holy Smokes! While things do get crazy stressful for Maggie in this book, we get a great feel for her and I understand her better now from what I have read of her in the Reed Security Series, which follows this series. I understand her Nickname better and her love of all things that go BOOM! Enjoy this rea ...more

Thanks to the author for ARC in exchange for my honest review.

The story only worth 3.7 stars of mine. The story continues with the reeds security, which related to one of my review previously. The story to me is sort of a bit boring, yes, Maggie is stubborn and sexy but the plot just turns out too predictable. I would say this story worth reading when free time. I guess it's just not interesting enough or me. A bodyguard and a stubborn woman... yea the chemistry of this combination a

Another 5+ star rating! I love this series and the well written storylines that flow along keeping you on the edge of your seat. The characters are strong, intelligent, dominant, sexy as hell, feisty and absolutely intriguing. Sebastian and Maggie fight and disagree with one another constantly. She doesn’t stop to think about her safety and just goes with her instincts, while Sebastian is trying to protect and keep her alive. There is lots of drama, humor, angst, suspense and mystery all rolled ...more

I read this book first before moving on with Cap in the Reed Security series and I am glad I did. I have absolutely loved Maggie and her desire to drive Sebastian absolutely freaking nuts! I also love the familial relationship that develops between Maggie and Sinner, although Sebastian does not find this as funny and as entertaining as we do. Obviously, with Maggie and Sebastian's story not ending in this book, it does not make it any less of a good book. In fact, it provides a few extra layers ...more

Can Cap keep Maggie safe and still have a relationship as well or is Magg ...more

Nice action great ending

I liked this book, though it could have been a bit steamier. There were some really funny parts, more suspense and mystery, quite a bit of thriller as well. They investigated more than one dark and abandoned building that may or may not have contained dead bodies and men with guns out to kill.

It was a true investigative storyline with bad guys and worse guys, bodyguards, safe houses, car chases and the everything else. The heroine was a tough gal with sass and Sebastian

I'm a stay at home mom with a love for romance novels. There's nothing better than reading about a hot, alpha male that makes my heart swoon. I spend most days hanging out with my kids or writing about my next book boyfriend. I love crocheting, sewing, reading, and being outdoors, but in the end, there is nothing better than getting lost in a good book!
