Perfect balance of heat and hilarity!

One thing I hate about reading a book like this, #21 in a series, where It is my first time reading anything from this series, is the fact that if I really love it, like I did with this book, then I have another whole big series to add to my TBR. And this book was spectacular. It was super hot and steamy, it had action and drama and I was laughing out loud like every few minutes.

Despite the fact that I hadn’t read any of the previous Reed Security books, I fe

Rocco by Giulia Lagomarsino is book 21 in the Reed Security Series. This is the story of Brooke and Rocco. I haven't read the previous book so for me I thought it could be a standalone book.
Brooke is working to move forward with her boyfriend but finds out he is cheating on her. Of course Brooke didn't handle it well and that out come is her now ex boyfriend is after her. This leads her to meet Rocco in a somewhat funny way. Rocco is a ex military guy who now is now working as part of the Reed
Ashley Estep The Art of Reading
I love Rocco! This book is the perfect example as to why I will never get tired of the Reed Security series. Giulia Lagomarsino has created this amazing world and casts of characters that has me hooked with each and every book.

Rocco and Brooke were absolutely hilarious, they had me laughing so hard it hurt. Then add in the Reed Security crew and I was in tears laughing. These books would not be what they are if it was not for the entire Reed Security crew. These characters are so close that you

Rocco is a member of Reed Security and has been a single father to his daughter Evie since she was born, and she is his world. He didn’t expect that a stop at the gas station would find his life turned upside down by a woman who refused to follow the rules he created to govern his life.

Brooke’s temper and desire for revenge has got her in a bit of trouble. After making Rocco her unwilling accomplice she now finds herself having to serve her sentence under his roof.

This story has all the things
I’ve read several of the Reed Security books at this point and I’m always taken on an adventure where another of these security team members bites the dust and falls into a relationship that they didn’t know they needed. Rocco and Brooke’s story is no different. Entertaining story line and lots of jokes with an alpha ex military security hero always makes for a good story in this series.

This book was great! I loved Rocco and Brooke, the banter between them was fantastic and their chemistry was palpable. There's lots of great antics and plenty of laughs in this book. Such a entertaining and phenomenal read, I highly recommend you give it a read.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Brooke is a passionate being. She’s also quite understanding. So when she walks in on her boyfriend in the middle of a BDSM scene with another man in their home that she literally JUST moved into with him, she doesn’t immediately freak out. But when he confesses to using her as a cover, the passion ignites and she does some damage with a baseball bat. Fearing jail, she runs and ends up taking a hostage and his vehicle to get away. What she doesn’t

Rocco (Reed Security, #21) by Giulia Lagomarsino was a great 5 star read.
I loved Rocco and Brooke, they pulled me right and I had so many LOL moments with them.

Brooke discovers her boyfriend in a not so great predicament and her anger takes over. She takes care of a few things with a bat and flees, she ends up running from the cops.

Rocco meets Brooke when he sees her hop in his truck. He lets her think that she has kidnapped him because he is intrigued b

Having read all the books to date, you can either read them alone or want to know more about each of the other characters and trust me you will want to. I started on the first in the series and I can't stop, I look forward to each of their stories and the future of Reed Security. The author draws you in from the start, you don't know what each book will entail but they all share the same feelings and/or thoughts we have with the connec

Where to even begin! Brooke was awesome! I really identified a lot to her in my younger days. I felt the same way about kids! Her reactions were so honest. I also love that she is a "sweat the small stuff" kinda person. She is not at all the typical female lead character in a story. She doesn't follow any set ways of how you expect a character to behave. She is completely unique! She is the kind of character that is truly honest. She tells everyone exactly how it is and doesn't put on any airs. ...more

This is the first book I have read by the author and it can be read as a standalone yet I am going back to read all of the previous books in the Reed Security series. It is a book filled with humor, drama and two characters that burn up the pages. Rocco is a single father who puts his daughter Evie first and foremost but being in the security business has him engaging in some harrowing adventures. Brooke is a woman who has grown up too fast and has always looked out for number one. On the fatefu ...more

"I thought this was breaking the rules." "Shut up."

Brooke beats up her boyfriend, destroys his car with a baseball bat, takes Rocco's gun and kidnaps him, and now they're on the run. And we're not even done with chapter 2 yet. She's on house arrest, and because she's Reese's friend, Reed Security agrees to be in charge of her. More specifically, Rocco is in charge. They're busy doing the dirty every chance they get. But this isn't a real relationship. He has a little girl - she hates kids. He ha

Can we talk about what a genius Giulia is for a minute.

This book had me going crazy. From the start this book kept me entertained, first with Brooke's hilarious antics of smashing her boyfriend's car (which he deserved), then with her kidnapping Rocco and it just carried on.

Each page of the book kept me so engrossed that I was dreading the end of their tale. Brooke is an amazing character. she is completely different from the other wives, the fact that she is a badass from the beginning. And I h

Humor, emotion, action and very hot romance
Excellent romance of the Reed Security series which from the first two chapters, sets the tone on the characters of Brooke and Rocco. They are as crazy as each other, lost in their denial of emotional bond. I loved the two characters from the first two chapters. The story can be both hilarious, exciting and moving, and I had a great time thanks to the quirky characters.

Been waiting for poor Brooke to get her book for quite some time now!! And as expected her story did not fail to deliver and was just as awesome and funny as I thought it would be!! About time she got her HEA after watching the boys get theirs from behind her computer!! If your new to Guilia's books as some others have done I suggest you start from the beginning and first read the "For the Love of a Good Woman series where we first meet Cap and Maggie.

Rocco was a mass of contradictions with his rigid rule book for women to keep him from forming any attachments and feelings for them.
He met his match in feisty Brooke as she burst into his life in a pseudo kidnapping attempt. Hilarious in many ways as their weird meet cute had him interested in her wild desire to escape her cheating ex. ( I loved her cray cray scenes when she caught her fiancée by the way)

Each book is better than the last and Rocco was no different.
She knocked this book right out the park.

My world has been so enriched by this EPIC series Reed Security, and the brilliant Giulia Lagomarsino, making it my favorite security series EVA! Yeah, I said it, because she's EARNED it with the way she weaves together story after story which never is the same, and Rocco is another clueless single man of Reed Security who has all kinds of rules for his life. There's one problem with that, the woman who was made for him isn't even respecting them. Hell, they met when she thought she was kidnappi ...more

Love, love this series. I can't get enough of the sexy alpha males at Reed Security. This the 21th book in this series and I don't want it to end. I have missed a few along the way and I have to go back and read them all over in order again. You don't have to read each one to get the understanding of this series but if you want a better understanding of the back story and characters you really should and you won't be disappointed.

We're coming to the end of the Reed Security series, and I’m going to miss these guys! If you remember, Rocco recently found out he was a father & now has sole custody of his two year old daughter, Evie. I laughed at the way this story started-Brooke acts before she thinks & ends up spending a lot of time with Rocco, whether either of them like it. What I loved about this book: the author had a great balance between the romance & action in the plot, a bit of the humorous banter the guys are know ...more

Rocco has rules – rules that he uses to keep himself not getting attached to women.
Brooke had decided to finally move in with Gary, but what she finds out on the day she moves in, isn’t quite what she expected.
Rocco can’t believe the woman that snuck in his truck, she was a knockout, focusing he finds she trying to get away from her cheating ex, deciding to ‘kidnap’ him to get away. Having had enough Rocco can’t take it anymore and lets her know enough talking, and he can see she wants him just

Rocco and Brooke

Bring twice the usual tissue count. You'll need them from laughing so hard so often when you aren't crying because of the touching or scary sad parts.

Thanks to Knight's IT skills and abusive monitoring actions, everyone knows everything or at least all those he wantsthem to know.

Brooke doesn't have successful relationships. There is always something wrong with the guy. You know, like his hair is too long or maybe too short. Those kinds of things. She knows it just isn't gonna wor

I cannot believe this book is #21 in the Reed Security Series and after reading every one of these books, Giulia Lagomarsino continues to make each of these characters interesting, the stories are page turners, and so, so funny at times. The men of Reed Security are crazy alpha, passionate, and sometimes just plain crazy. The women are strong, stubborn, and passionate about their men and families.

To be fair there hasn’t been one book that this author has done that I though “uh no”, and to be fair I did worry this may have been the first, when we had seen Rocco he was so ridged with his rules, and Brooke is a female character unlike any other.

However yet again I was wrong, the entire book was a rollercoaster from start to finish, Giulia darn her! She loves yanking on those heartstrings! As well as making you laugh so much you need to pee. This was a wonderful tale that keeps you hooked.

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!
