"Striker" is another of the K19 Security series, former military, who work together for a private security company, but still doing the same they did in their military career. The series is about them finally finding a partner to balance the life they lead. For those who already have read some of the later books of K19, they have seen the beginning of this story. Striker meeting Aine at her sister's wedding.
But as the political situation is heating up there is not much time for Striker to spend

So glad to finally, finally get Striker and Aine's story! After getting titillated wbw by these 2 when they met at Ava and Razor's wedding, I can now sigh.
This was no easy journey and my feelings went up and down the emotional meter. A lot!
Striker in my opinion was wrong lol, and I had to side with Aine on this, as age certainly didn't make him smarter. Their HEA was OH so worth all the angst I went thru when I wasn't sure what was going to happen next.

This, the 6th novel in the 'K19 Security Services' series, is a superb installment. With, as expected from Heather Slade, outstanding characters, wonderful interactions and the metaphorical bite of adventure, this is a great romantic read.

Readers not familiar with Ms Slade's work, could read this book as a stand alone novel to get the gist of the series, but read in order the story-line has more impact. The interactions between charismatic characters brings deep emotions from the reader's subco

Ahh Striker he isn’t a favorite of all of the teams members and right now because of him and Aina he how has a few more he has fallen out of favor with. They are a couple who love and love deep but he’s making decisions on his own that concern them both. T may be their job to keep secrets but we all know from their past that they don’t do well with keeping secrets from the women they love.

Note: These are best read in order…. They are all excellent stories – you will *want* to read them all.

This is book 6 in the K-19 Security Solutions series and it features Griffin “Striker” Ellis and Aine McNamara. The wedge between these two broke my heart. I could feel the love emanating from the pages. Almost every time they caught each others eyes, mine filled with tears. The longing I could feel coming off both of them was heartbreaking. The reasons Striker had for doing what he did was soul-crushingly sad. I did feel bad for Stuart though because he really is a good guy. Tara, on the other ...more

OMG! What an intense romance! 💞💓💞

Griffin "Striker" is a focused man who pushed the woman he loved away for her own protection but that doesn't mean it was an easy decision. He's still in love with her but he has his reasons for believing they can't work. Anna, on the other hand, thinks that it's all her fault that he pushed her away. But now, they have the chance to be open and honest with each other... about everything and each other. 💕💗🔥💕

This is one emotional romance that with take you through

Aine was heartbroken but has moved on, although she doesn't believe she will ever love anyone the way she loves Striker.

This is another book in the K19 series by Heather Slade and is the story of Griffin, aka Striker, and Aine. Their romance has hit a shoal, resulting in their breakup. Aine is struggling but has begun dating again. When Striker and she meet again after 8 months apart, it appears that neither is happy. Although Striker broke up with Aine, his eyes are always seeking hers.
This book is so much more than a romance. The K19 members suddenly are caught in South American political turmoil which culmina

Another fantastic K19 action romance!

We got the first part of Striker and Aine's romance last year in Mistletoe, but here we get the whole enchilada! Wow - what a story! There's the usual tense action and suspense - there's never a dull moment for the K19 crew - but the emotional impact is off the charts! Aine is far tougher than she first appeared, and Striker really had to work to make things right.

This entire series is just about perfect, and you don't want to miss this latest installment. W

Griffin ‘Striker’ Ellis and Aine McNamara have been an item, but he ended it suddenly. Although Aine is trying to move on with her life, Stiker seems to be stuck – looks like Aine is his ‘one’, but why did he break up with her? While the K-19 guys are following the trail of a terrorist through Columbia and back to the Middle East, Striker is put into contact with Aine on a nearly daily basis. With this ongoing mission and many of the K-19 families coming and going, there is tension and suspense ...more

This is book six in this series and although it is not necessary to read the previous books, it makes things much easier to understand if you have. This story is a little different than the others. It has less action and more of the romance I expect in these books. There are some incorrect word choices i.e. corroboration instead of collaboration. I read the sentence several times to be sure I was clear on what was intended. Hello editors?? The words may look the same but for sure don’t mean the ...more

I love the K-19 series, each book ties in with the others but can be read as a Stand alone.
This book brings up issues for Striker that cripple him emotionally. He makes decisions with out info needed, but continues to be fully functional at work.
Aine is trying to move on and live her life. She spends a lot of time helping her sister with her infant son.
The K-19 family continues to grow and change as they stay family and welcome new babies to the family.
Action packed, great characters, fun, sad

Another fast paced, exciting, heart breaking story in the K-19 series. Each book works as a stand-alone but you’ll get more if you read the series in order since there is an overall story arc and you get to catch up with previously written about characters.

This is Striker and Aine’s story. They are really good together but Striker leaves and Aine must carry on. Now they’ve come back together. Will things be different this time?

I have read a couple of this series but not all of them and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one. Each book focuses on a different couple so it’s not imperative that you read them all. That being said, the characters appear in numerous books in the series, so I’m sure reading the entire series from book 1 to book 6 would probably give more insight and backstory for the characters. This book has action, suspense and romance that kept me interested from the start to the end of the story. This is ...more

Simply said the K19 series is great!! I love that it not only has steamy scenes but also a good story line. This is Strikers (aka Griffin) and Aine story. You learn a little about these two in a previous book, they have a quick fall hard kind of love affair until Griffin suddenly breaks up with Aine. She’s left wondering what happened and he’s left miserable until they are both pushed to be honest with each other. All the while we get to learn more about the mission the K19 team is working and w ...more

Heather Slade had me on the edge of my seat with Striker and Aine's story. I've been looking forward to Strikers book because he has been so interesting and a little bit mysterious in this series so we finally get to know him now.

Striker and Aine are HOT together, but they have a history they have to get past and she has to get rid of some baggage before they can be together again. Let's not to even mention there are some terrorists that Striker and the K-19 Crew need to deal with. Put it all t

This is the first book I have read in the K19 series. Griffin, aka Striker, and Aine had a relationship going and suddenly, without a word of explanation, Striker calls it off. Aine is heartbroken but gets on with her life. They meet again as Striker works with Aine's brother-in-law, Razor. They still have strong feelings for each other, but secrets keep them apart. The plot flows and the characters are well-developed. I highly recommend the book. A wonderful mix of romance and suspense.

This is a well written book with strong characters and a heartbreaking story line. The author does a great job building the story,filling it with tons of emotions from happy to sad and back again. She brings drama,suspense and tons of action to this fast paced story. The romance is hot and steamy and the love never ended. The family keeps growing and life moves on in the K-19 series.

I'm a bit late to the K19 party and although I've now read a few of the novels in this series, I feel that Striker, more than the others, needs an understanding of what's gone on before.

As a genre, I love romantic suspense. However, I feel that Striker is more suspense than romance and a more even balance between the two could have been struck.

Having said that, when you read Striker and Aine's story there is no doubt of the feelings they have for each other, even without various descriptions of

Griffin Ellis “Striker” thinks he can never give Aine McNamara a family so he breaks up with her without telling her why. She moves on, but she’s really settling for someone else she could never love. It isn’t until she almost dies and the choice of whether or not she can have children may be taken away from her that he tells her why he is so afraid. This story had plenty of espionage and suspenseful action just like the previous ones on this series, but also a lot more sweet romance. It was gre ...more

"Striker" (K19 Security Solutions Book 6) by Heather Slade is a great read. I enjoyed 'Striker' Griffin and Aine's story. A wonderful addition to this series, packed with romance, action, interesting characters, and more. I loved catching up with the K19 cast of characters.

Exciting and emotional, Striker and Aine's story will keep you on the edge seat, while your emotions go on a roller coaster ride. Drama, suspense, intrigue and an overall feeling of angst make sure you never lose focus as the story unfolds. An excellent book and addition to this series. By my own choice I am posting a truthful review.
