Gabe is the 11th book in the Reed Security series. It is suggested they are read in order.

“What’s all this?” Cap asked.
“You asked me to bring dishes.”
“No,” he said slowly. “I asked you to bring a dish.”
“Yeah, and when I asked what kind, you wouldn’t f*&king answer me. You just said enough for everyone. So, I dug through my cabinets and brought every f*&king dish I cou

It was a real struggle to finish this book. The premise was good but I found it unrealistic.

First off, the guys talk like they belong in a frat house. I don't know any guy who gives advice down to what underwear to use for a date and then even tells him how to deal with smell issues down below on himself. I'm sorry, you're how old and obviously not a virgin but have no idea how to deal with hygiene issues? This wasn't the only instance that left me feeling this way, through the entire book the

Gabe meets a woman at the bar that he is more than happy to help satisfy her. The next morning doesn’t go as planned, he has to answer the door and finds Cazzo there with kids, then finds out that he slept with Cazzo sister. Gabe knows he would have wanted to see Isa again, but Cazzo made it very clear she was off limits and she had kids which he had no idea what to do with.
Isa can’t help thinking about Gabe, but she needed Matteo to sign the divorce papers. At a company party everything is goi

Gabe is one the security alphas who happens to have a rep as a player.. he meets izzy and is head over heals..but one problem her brother is his teammate. Such a fun read. I laughed and I cried.

Well, the author has delivered another home run for her readers. Her stories can be anything from flat out hilarious to gut wrenching emotional & everything in between. Gabe is one of her lighter themed & funny romances & I enjoyed it immensely.
Gabe works for REED SECURITY, he is gorgeous, ripped, intense & lethal. He's excellent at his career being a field security agent & takes his work seriously & is a consummate professional.
But, ever since he stumbled on a fellow team member engaging in an

Gabe Moore is a man that loves everything about a woman. He has quite the “salty” language and makes no excuses for it. He also has a great sense of humor. It gave me a chuckle a time or two. Isabella “Isa” knows how to put her brother in his place. His story is book two in the series – if you need to catch up. She’s just come out of a bad relationship but you can tell that she still knows how to flirt.

Our author seems to be on a roll. All of a sudden, each story seems better than the last. No

4 1/2 Stars!!

I like the way this author creates her characters. This book is a continuation of a series which seems to get better and better.
Gabe was pretty hilarious in his straightforward and kind of simple way that he thought and processed information. He spoke without really thinking and was pretty honest, which got him punched out by Sam. A lot.
That scene where he was tied to the chair and interrogated by Sam was priceless.
Isa was a tough talking, snarky heroine that kept this storyline c

Gabe has never lived down a moment in time that he was caught up in, so he's kind of been the joke at Reed Security while also being a big question mark as well. If you want to know what I mean by that, you'll have to read the series for yourself. Unfortunately, his poor luck isn't over yet, see he picks up a woman at a bar, and the next morning, her kids come home, and it turns out that she's the sister of one of his teammates, and all hell breaks out. But it's not over yet, because he wants he ...more

Hello! My name is Broken Record, and I am bookaholic!!! LOL But no seriously I always feel like a broken record after reading Guilia's books. There is apparently only so many ways to say "This book was awesome" and "Each book just gets better and better" and "I can't wait for the next one and the one after and after" and so on.

A total hit! This was a great romance because it touched on SO much reality! A real showing of what moms go through and how much is on their shoulders every day. The humor brought by the men of Reed Security, as always, had me in stitches. I love how real Isa is and the issues she faced are so definitely something most (if not all) moms can relate to. Her struggle to keep sane and in control with 2 small kids while still trying to live a full life are so easily relatable. And the issues that sta ...more

I found GABE to be hilarious at times! I knew that Gabe’s story was going to be good, but wow I did not see the combination of Isa and him. And it is absolutely hilarious that Isa is Capo’s sister! And poor Gabe … when he has trouble trying to decide what to do and how to handle things, he turns to the men of Reed Security for advise. Bad idea, but an absolutely hilarious part of the book.

And poor Isa. Not only does she have to deal with Gabe, but also Capo. And he really fell down in the beginn

I have read every book in this series and it's companion series "For the Love of a Good Woman" and I have to say this one was distinctly different and thoroughly enjoyable. The others are usually very serious and stressfully suspenseful but this one is light, fun and sweet with a touch of mystery. Gabe knows practically from the moment he lays eyes on Isabella that she is his light, his future, his everything but Isabella has just left her husband, the divorce not even final. She is not looking ...more

This series just keeps on getting better and better. When I initially read about Gabe in Hunter's story and then learnt more about him in Chris's story, I thought that maybe I would not like him and enjoy his character as much as the other male characters from previous Reed Security books. .But boy oh boy was I wrong. This story just fit so perfectly that I was really blown away. What I enjoyed most about the book was Gabe's interaction with Sam. I loved the way Gabe just picked at Sam to get so ...more

Another winner by Giulia Lagomarsino. Another well written pleasure fest that will have you captured and held spellbound through the entire story. A tiny twist and it can be quite comical when you think about it, but in this story, you have Gabe as the one who wants a serious relationship and marriage right away instead of the woman! Yea, that was really cool to read for a change, but since in this case the woman, Isa is going through a divorce when she meets Gabe...and she has two small childre ...more

This is book 11 in this series. While it can be a standalone, with all the characters in this book from the previous books, it would be beneficial to at least read some of them to help you understand the dynamics and just learn who everyone is. During this book I had to refer back to a book or two to remind myself who everyone was. Love this series but since it has been going on for a while, there are quite a few people in and out of this book.

Gabe was literally your typical playboy. Had no cares in the world and lived for having a good time. Then he meets Isa and as usual he was in for a wild one night stand as was she. But the next morning when he tires to leave and comes face to face with his team mate things are taking a turn for the 'worse' or is it. Isa is the sister of one of his co-workers.

This author has me hook, line and sinker. I have been waiting for this book and when it came available I squealed! I love Gabe and his roles in the previous books but for him to get his own story and meet his own woman, yes please! This was a great read which if you have read Giulia's books you will know that you have no idea what you are in for and how fast the fork in the road can change the whole story. It is absolutely awesome. This Reed Security book is no different. It is hilariously funny ...more

It was supposed to be a one night stand. Gabe meets Isa, an attractive woman, spends the night at her apartment and leaves the next morning, no harm no foul. Everything turns upside down when he opens the door to find one of his friends/team members dropping off Isa’s kids and he realizes that one night may not be enough.

All Isa wanted was a break for herself and not only does her brother know what happened, he knows the man it happened with and now the man isn’t content to let it end. She has j

I love and loathe when these books come out! Love because I can't wait to read them, but loathe because it means I have another month to wait for the next one!! As you've come to expect of this series, it's a brilliant read with the normal array of characters we've come to love. If you haven't read any of this series yet - where have you been? You've missed so much! This can easily be read as a stand alone, but

I finished Gabe's book today and it was amazing! From being introduced to Gabe in the first book he appeared in to his personal book you learn so much about him.In the beginning all the guys think he is gay and it really makes you wonder more about him. When you finally get to his book and see him and Isabella together you start to see exactly who he really is. I absolutely loved his book. While he isn't gay he has experimented and is in to certain things that others considered weird. Isabella i ...more

This was yet another great book by Giulia Lagomarsino. I have read all the previous books in the series and over this long time I am beginning to forget things. It would be amazing to have a list of characters and their descriptions at the beginning of the book, maybe even listing which book centers on each. There might not be time to do this for the release of this book, but maybe for the next one in the series? I think it would be very helpful. As far as this book, Gabe and the Reed Security a ...more

So far I have loved everyone one of Giulia Lagomarsino's books, they just get better and better and this one is no exception. Gabe has appeared in quite a few previous books but none have given you much into he's background, just a few little hints along the way and this made him so much more mysterious. I've been dying for this book to be released.

The next thing you know is they are at her house. He ends up spending the night and is awoken by someone banging in her door. It’s her Kids coming home.

I loved the gap between a Gabe, big brute extremely effective in his work in safety, with big caliber, but who turns big clumsy teddy with the woman he loves and her family and that he does not understand not because she seems to speak another language. Not to mention that this is Cazzo's sister, (see the previous stories) and that the first thing Cazzo does when he discovers their couple is to hurt him even if they work together.

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!
