Wallowing in grief for too long can be hazardous. It’s why I allowed my brother to talk me into accepting a new client.
Our security firm needed the money, and the endorsement from a famous director could steer our company to new heights.
Then his daughter walked in, the woman I’d be assigned to, and I knew I’d made a huge mistake.

The Assignment by S. Nelson is the first part of a duology. The author is new to me, and, fortunately, her work did not disappoint.
Owen and Ford are brothers who own and operate a security firm. They are hired by a wealthy movie producer as protection detail for his two daughters because he has received threats against his family.
Owen, the sober of the two, is basically in charge of the security firm. He keeps it afloat. Ford is grief stricken due to a recent death, and he drowns his sorrows i

I received this ARC from the author.

I haven’t read anything else by this author, though I want to, so I was going in blind and taking a chance on someone new to me with a book that sounded amazing. All expectations and more were met!!

Ford and Owen Massey are hired to do high-profile security for the fraternal twin daughters of a rich man who has been receiving threats. Until all is fixed, he wants his daughters protected all the time.

The best part of this book is the characters. Ford and Owen

What’s better than a man forced to do a job he doesn’t want with a girl who feels the same way! Ford and Cara start off hating each other which of course makes for a great read. The back and forth makes a great page turner!

I received this book as an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review

Let me start with this ends in a cliffhanger, BUT the second book will be out July 8th so you won't have to wait long to get the answers you will desperately want.
The beginning of the book really pulled me in, I was into the direction that it was going, but it started to get a little long winded. Just as I was thinking that I needed to get to the suspense the book takes off. The sexual tension is through the roof and

S. Nelson has seriously surprised me with this book. It was addictive and intriguing. I did not expect this. What I did expect was a stand-offish hero forced to be a bodyguard to a spoilt rich girl and later after getting to know her, falling madly in love. Okay, so the character summarizations were basically correct but that was not where the story went.

Ford Massey has just recently lost someone he dearly loved and is buried six feet under grief and guilt. He rather spend his time locked up in

S. Nelson never disappoints when it comes to a suspenseful read!

If you're looking for an angst-filled read, then go ahead and one-click this one! The Assignment has that slow-burn feel to it, but that's only because of the buildup that S. Nelson has carefully put together as brothers, Owen and Ford, set out to protect their latest clients' twin daughters, Cara and Emily. The two of them couldn't be more opposite and Owen and Ford are in for a bumpy ride, especially where Cara is concerned.

Holy Cow!!!!! This book was AMAZING!!!! From start to finish I was hooked and dying to know what was going to happen next. I absolutely loved these characters and was drawn right into the story line.

This book starts out intense and heartbreaking. Right away we are thrown into a tragic moment in Ford's life and this really helps to understand why he is the way he is when dealing with Cara.

This book really does have it all. There is great chemistry between the characters and the banter between t

If Ford had known it was for a big producer's daughters he would've turned it down. Emily is sweet and volunteers for charities. Her twin sister Cara is a bitchy socialite who has made more than her fair share of drama on social media. Ford is protecting the conceited socialite. She likes to push his buttons.

Buy this book right now! S Nelson has created a delicious, forbidden, enemies to lovers romance that grabbed ahold of me from the first few pages and I'm still thinking about it! At first, I wasn't sure I would like Cara's character, but as the story progressed we get glimpses that Cara has secrets that no one knows and reasons for the way she behaves. I can't wait to find out what those reasons are! And Ford, he was absolutely sex on a stick! The tension between Ford and Cara had my whole body ...more

The Assignment is book one in the Massey Security duet. Wallowing in grief, Ford gets talk into taking on a new client. Taking on a famous director's high profile and reckless daughter is a challenge within itself. This book is a wild, steamy ride that will leave you hanging and wanting more. I'm definitely interested to see what happens next with Ford and Cara.

This is the first book in a duet. Brother’s Ford and Owen are hired security for a high profile case as there are threats issued. Emily and Cora are twin sisters, and as opposites as can be just like the two brothers. Ford is a strict rule abider, and Cara drives him to distraction with her rule breaking. This is a well written flawless story which is intense and with twists. This story does end with a cliff-hanger, and I for one cannot wait to read the second part. I highly recommend this talen ...more

When I read this book I was wondering why I don’t read this author more because her writing is fantastic! There are so many twists and turns in this book it kept my head on a swivel. The chemistry between Ford and Cara is explosive but Ford is kept on his toes dealing with Cara’s partying. I can’t wait to see what happens next between Cara and Ford!

The Assignment by S. Nelson is the 1st book in the Massey Security Duet. Ford and Owen Massey run their own security firm and have been hired to handle high profile security for a famous movie producer's 24 year old twin daughters, Emily and Cara.
In book 1, we get Ford and Cara's story. Ford is assigned to Cara who was considered the spoiled brat while Emily was considered the good twin. Ford has to constantly be on watch, protecting Cara from her bad habits which gets him to thinking what made

Another entertaining read by S. Nelson.
Ford Massey is still reeling from the tragic loss of his sister when he is sent on a new assignment. Along with his brother, he’s the security for two sisters who are under threat. It is unfortunate that the sister Ford is assigned is a famous socialite, A.K.A. spoiled rich diva. So much for the low profile job he was hoping for!

Protecting Cara requires controlling Cara. Something in which even her parents haven’t found success. Cara lives life as she wants

A story of a spoiled rich girl who does what she wants without considering anyone else’s feelings or the consequences of her actions, and a man who has lost someone dear to him and is dealing with that loss in his own way. Is there more to Cara than what is seen on the outside? Has something happened to make her the way she is?

Cara Dessoye is a spoiled rich girl who is need of protection because she is the daughter of a well-known and highly sought-after producer. She has a twin Emily who is her

Until all is fixed, he wants his daughters protected all the time. They were each appointed to each daughter. And Ford was to protect the spoiled brat, Cara, instead of the good daughter, Emily.

The Assignment by S. Nelson did not disappoint in the slightest! It was a thrilling read full of sexual tension, and a tension of another kind.

This book was all focus on the story. Thre was nudity and sexual tension in the book, but didn't go beyond that. I loved that because I got to know the characters more, but somehow without giving anything away. The author was very clever with how she wrote the book. It was incredibly smart.

The book also deals with sensitive issues such as addiction. It l

Ford has hit rock bottom and he’s a complete mess until he gets himself together to take an assignment with his brother for a very wealthy family as security for two sisters.

Wow. This is one of those books that grips you from the start and doesn't let up. Ford and Owen Massey are hired to protect the twin daughters of a famous Hollywood producer who's been receiving threats. Ford is assigned to Cara, while Owen will protect Emily. While Emily is a good girl who works with charities and doesn't give her parents any grief, Cara is the exact opposite - throwing tantrums, drinking and doing drugs, and doing everything she can to ditch her bodyguard.

4/5 stars! What a seductive, infuriating, stoic read about socialite twin sisters who need security detail due to threats to their family and the sexy brothers who are hired for the job.

The sexual tension between Ford and Cara in this read could be cut with a knife! I didn’t know whether I wanted them to give into each other and get it over with or battle to the death! They were so wrong for each other, but something between them was so palpable and right!

This being my first read from this author I was pleasantly surprised. The story was good the characters were realistic. The situation was believable.

Cara played the part of the snooty rich know it all daughter of a well known movie director. If the author was trying to get me to hate her well she did a great job. She was so obnoxious and self centred I wanted to yell at her for being so immature.
I don’t know how Ford put up with her. I would have shot her myself lol.

S. Nelson never disappoints and The Assignment is no different. It has twists and turns, a great storyline and characters that pull you in. Ford and Cara are relentless and explosive. The ending was a cliffhanger leaving me on the edge and I am cursing you S. Nelson! But in a good way! We won't have to wait long for the next instalment and I can't wait! Thanks for another amazing read.

S Nelson is by far one of my favourite authors as her books always keep you on the edge of your seat and in massive anticipation❣️This book definitely fulfilled those criteria that I’ve come to expect from her.

S. Nelson grew up with a love of reading and a very active imagination, never putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard until 2013.

Her passion to create was overwhelming, and within a few months she’d written her first novel, Stolen Fate. When she isn’t engrossed in creating one of the many stories rattling around inside her head, she loves to read and travel as much as she can.
