I have read every single novel these two ladies have written together and so far I have enjoyed them all. That includes this particular book and so I can only hope that they will keep em coming, so I can keep on reading ;)

This is the seventh book in the series and this time we get to read about Daniel, Ward Security's very own accountant. Now I am gonna be honest here and admit that I had no idea who Daniel was when I started this book. I guess I haven't been paying enough attention because I a

4 Stars!

I really enjoy these ladies writing and I have really been enjoying their new series. This one was just as fun and sexy and action packed as the ones before it. Its a plus that the series has a had a steady stream of good books.

This one definitely sets itself apart from the ones before. This time we got our Ward Security accountant getting some action. Literally. And it comes from around the world while he's in Bermuda on vacation. A hot CIA agent has mistaken him for a man who is known

Folk wisdom has it that everyone has a doppelgänger....

Secret Agent Man
There’s a man who leads a life of danger
His real name unknown.
To everyone he meets he stays a stranger
Do I even know him?
With every move he makes, another chance he takes
Will he take a chance with me?
Secret Agent Man, Secret Agent Man.
Will you tell me your name,
Secret Agent Man....

Daniel, accountant at Ward Security, is on holiday. Adventure is not on his list of To Do Things, maybe read a book? definitely soak up the sun.
I felt pretty 'meh' about this one.

~Killer Bond felt really disconnected from the rest of the series
~ I don't remember Daniel at all from the previous books
~Daniel ran hot & cold for half the book & that is a pet peeve of mine

Another five star romp through the adventure catalogue with this spy entry in the Ward Security series.

I know I keep saying it, but these books would make brilliant TV and this one's no exception as it trips around the world from Bermuda to mainland Europe.

Abe and Dom remain my favourite pairing from the Ward boys but I have to say Daniel and his CIA agent came close to lifting the crown.

The pacing is superb, the plot an interesting one which certainly wouldn't be out of place as a James Bond an

Such an amazing story! Can we please get Angelo’s story next? Pleeaasse? Possibly with Cole or Garrett? ;-)
4 Stars! 😍💕Loved it! This one was definitely quite different from the other “Ward Security” books. Dan had a very small role in the previous books, so as a reader we didn’t know anything about him which was good actually since we didn't have any pre-conceived notions 😁. And the story did not waste any time starting right in the first chapter when Dan meets Edward (CIA agent assigned to kill another agent who is Dan’s doppelgänger) in the Caribbean Islands🏖 and decides to have a vacation fling... ...more

Reading Killer Bond was such an adventure it was like being in Mission impossible.

I am not going into the shenanigans that Daniel and Edward got up to through Europe, that would spoil this thrill ride.

It might be a case of mistaken identity and they are strangers but it is lust at first sight they cannot keep their hands or mouths off each other which was scorching.

I loved this adventure and I loved quiet numbers geek Daniel and the secretive Edward, it has a different feel to the rest of the bo

***** Fantastic ! Killer Bond, Ward Security Bk 5.
The super quiet life of an accountant changes forever. While on vacation in the Bahamas for a well deserved break, Daniel is placed in the middle of a covert operation, international style. CIA agent, big, black haired, powerful Edward, has captivated Daniel on the beach, and meet up for dinner.

Before 24 hours is up, Daniel is a target, running for his life. Edward and Daniel have snappy, sassy banter, incindiary sparks in bed, and both want mo
4.5 Killer Stars!

Okay, I'll address the main thing that made me take .5 stars off and might frustrate people more than it did me. I don't know if it's entirely realistic or not that Daniel, a civilian, would be allowed to be used in a CIA op, even if they were accidentally involved in one before and looked a lot like the person they're trying to take down and get info from as well. Like of course I'm absolutely no expert, but would the CIA really put a civilian willingly in danger like that? I d

So this wasn’t my favorite in the series, contrary to many reviews. I found this one a little harder to read and I was pushing at times. Maybe it was just bad timing ! I love these books and look forward to the next... let’s see how I connect
3.5 stars I really enjoyed this one. I'd love to see more Brandt with Ward security.
3.75 stars.

I've read most of the books the duo have written and I'm glad I got to read this as well. It was one of things that I didn't know they were writing until they did and I couldn't turn that down.

I like how action packed their stories seem to be and I enjoyed reading about Daniel and Edward. Along with their story. It was a light read filled with lots of action.

4.5★'s Rounded Up!

This was so good guys! I really, really, really liked this one! I wasn’t sure friends. I had no idea how a story about Ward Security’s accountant was going to fit in but it totally surpassed fitting in. This was awesome. Really.


I honestly just loved the flow of this. The pacing was spot on and just kept me turning the pages and I did not want to put it down. It was very exciting. The locations were like another character in the book, and the connection, the romance, the love, w

Man oh man....

This was so fun!✨🍃

This book took me awhile to get into this one,because I was focused on the Ward team.

Like when are they coming
Who will do a camo
Will they help
But, then I got to know these guys!

And, they took me on an adventure. gosh it was an AWESOME adventure. And, Edward was so sweet! The descriptive writing was superb, I felt like I was on a boat, in a fast car, and in a tourist area in a blink of an eye. This was super fun, and man ooh man did I love it.

I really can’t remember Daniel from the previous books but he was an excellent character for this one. Mistaken identity has Edward hitting on him, on the beach in Bermuda, and their chemistry is incendiary. When Daniel discovers the real reason for Edward’s come-on, then the UST takes over. It’s a whirlwind adventure, spiced with plenty of action, bullets and car chases. Ward security has no part in this book, aside from phone conversations. There’s a cameo appearance from a side chara

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.25 stars

Killer Bond is the fifth book in the Ward Security series and it is my favorite one so far. This book has a bit of a different tone than the others, which are more bodyguard/security focused and take place primarily in and around Ward Security. With Killer Bond, we get more of a standalone spy thriller as Daniel and Edward travel the world trying to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. As the title suggest, there is a bit of a James Bond-vibe here, and honestly,
HOLY SHIT!! HOLY SHIT!! Killer Bond (KU) was KILLER!! LOL It was like watching Mission Impossible..I absolutely loved "Edward" and Daniel and the progression of "them"!! 🥰 Such a fantastic absolute page turner with a few AWESOME surprises!! The PERFECT blend of action adventure, schmexy times and a little sweetness thrown in for good measure!! WOW JUST WOW...I LOVED IT!!! BTW, this book can totally be read as a standalone..

Definitely not my favorite in the series. Something was missing or off or just not there... I don't really know but I couldn't connect with the MC's...

This is an exception with these authors and this series though so I'll continue on with them and the next book!!

This book has most definitely been my favourite of the series! From the first page it was exciting, fun, sexy, suspenseful, and action-packed! I couldn't put this down. I hope there will be more books set in this world. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to readers who enjoy m/m romantic suspense. This works totally fine as a standalone, but be warned you'll immediately want to go back to the start of the series because it is that good!

All reviews are voluntary and my honest opinion.

Rinda and Elliott are back with a new Ward Security book.

Daniel is finally on vacation.

He feels a little overwhelmed at Ward. All the guys are huge towering monoliths, and he's a slight computer guy. He's quiet and shy. Yes, he does have FBI training. Yes, Rowe Ward did seek him out personally. But Daniel feels boring, even his best friend Quinn is fitting in better than he is lately.

I swear, every new one of these books, they convince me they're my favorite.

I don’t think anyone will top Rowe and Noah, or maybe Lucas and Andrei… Mmmkay, nevermind, I can’t pick.

So, in this one we have Ward Security accountant, former FBI-guy, Daniel, vacationing in Barcelona. With a head for numbers and a quieter job than the rest of the guys at Ward, he didn’t really feel like he fit in; so he needed some time away. Sitting on the beach with a good book and a cocktail, he’s surprised when

This was another solid installment to this series. I loved that this took on a bit of a different direction than the previous books. Here, Daniel, the behind-the-scenes financial guru for Ward Security, finally decides to take a vacation. While there, he decides to throw a bit of caution to the wind and take a chance on a holiday hook-up with the sexy man hitting on him.

The chemistry is definitely on fire with Edward and Daniel, but it doesn’t take long before things heat up in another direction

Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott are one of my favorite writing duos ever, and Killer Bond is another example of why. This book has all the hallmarks of one of their stories: fantastic, layered, realistically flawed characters you can’t help but root for; sexy times that will make your kindle melt; plenty of action and suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat; an exciting, fast-paced plot that balances the romance well and will keep you glued to the pages until you finish... and some ...more

Amazing! As always the Ward Security Series freaking delivers. No matter the fact that we barely knew the MC, I was captivated from the start! Daniel and Edward were explosive! So so sexy accountant meets dashing secret agent. Only thing I must say, I would’ve given everything for an Epilogue of their future, I felt a little cut off from their HEA.
But overall amazing!

Daniel is the accountant for Ward Security and he's taking a vacation in Bermuda when he meets hot guy, Edward, at the pool. A fun date leads to hot sex, which leads to a crazy and unbelievable adventure for Daniel when he's mistaken for a spy. Edward cares for Daniel and doesn't want to use him to draw the real spy out but he's not given much choice in the matter. But at some point Daniel doesn't

AMAZING!!! Another great add to the series. Each book keeps getting better and better! Daniel and Edward are a exciting couple from start to finish. This has everything from action to sweetness, thrilling to delightful. Fast pasted from the get go and we jump right into it with these two. Their chemistry is instant, intriguing and explosive. Sexy mixed with more sexy and a dash of sweet and this is your new favorite couple. Daniel is happy with his so called boring life, until his vacation turns ...more
