Coop has everything!

This book was amazingly good. The first half was funny and heartwarming and absolutely hilarious at times. I just loved the camaraderie between the guys at Reed Security. The ribbing they give each other, the names they call each other and the inside jokes they all have. I love books like this, it makes you feel like you are watching an episode of friends in a way, like you are hanging out with a bunch of old friends that are just fun to be with.

Becky's finally had enough of her on again off again love's phobia of commitment. To save her heart, she needs to quit her job at Reed Security, and walk away from them and from Coop. But it will be harder to do that than she might have realized, considering there's someone after her, after them, oh who knows who exactly.

Coop has spent his relationship with Becky pushing her away and pulling her closer, never letting Becky in, never giving her all of himself, and it's finally going

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 connects we make in our lives. Through it all, no matter what you'l ...more

Coop was a bit more serious side than the majority of other Reed Security stories, and I'm still really emotional to be honest. Coop has had some things happen to him, things beyond his control, but they shaped him in to a man with walls like no other. He has a thing going with Becky, who has recently left working for the company, because she really wants to move on with her life, and while they have some big chemistry, he's still not letting her in for anything. And finally, when he's starting ...more

Another Reed Security Man goes down.

Loved everything g about this book. Becky is an awesome woman and very talented. Cool is a hot Alpha male with e.optional baggage. The two together are combustible. There are areas surrounding his daughter that they disagree on and Becky does help her sneak out of the bunker. The end is Rockland makes you heart happy after all the sadness.

This story literally chipped little pieces off me, I couldn’t stop thinking of the story long after I finished the story. I had read two books by the author earlier (Sinner and Sean) and I wasn’t a fan of both as there are explicit sex with other women depicted. Thankfully there’s none of that here, but there are other issues.

The story was beautifully written, and I loved the heroine. My heart broke for her. But SPOILERS below - Several incidences of violence against women depicted (including o

Coop is a man who has lived through hell and is damaged both physically and mentally. He has a daughter that he is overprotective of and he is member of Reed Security. His main priority is to keep his daughter safe from the world and the bad guys at all costs, however, those costs could make him lose his daughter unless he loosens his reigns on her. He has a girlfriend, but he has a hard time connecting with her and if he doesn’t get himself together, he’s going to lose her too.

Coop is trying to keep Kayla safe, and she's giving him a run for his money. At 17, she wants normal teenage experiences, and the life that she never had when they were on the run. He's been involved with Becky. She recently left Reed Security; feeling too constrained being with him all the time, she has a new job and a new home and roommate. The early part of the book is light and sometimes funny, with banter that borders on hilarious at times. The guys are at their best, teasing each other, re ...more

And she does it again! Giulia Lagomarsino has once again left me feeling all the emotions. Coop is book #22 in the Reed Security series and I loved every bit of it as much as I loved the first one. I have never loved a series with as many books as the Reed Security series like I love it. These characters are something special and amazing and make me fall in love with them all over again with each book. The characters are really what make this series what it is.

Coop is a man with a lot of issue.

New life, risk-taking and extremely moving
I loved this story. This opus is extremely well written, very strong and fascinating. This is the continuation of the story of Coop and Becky (already started in "A Mad Reed Security Christmas"). This part is at the beginning, introspective enough for the two of them because they have to make more decisive choices than before and in particular for them too, then it's humorous and dramatic. In short, I went through all the stages of the emotions.

This author has quickly become a favorite and this book is another wonderful addition to the series. It can be read as a standalone but I also recommend reading all of the other books in this series. This is Coop’s story and it is filled with drama, action and some growing pains for all involved. Coop has been through the ringer and is struggling to raise his daughter, Kayla, as she is trying to assert her independence. Unfortunately, she grew up as her father was on the run from a psycho, named ...more

I can't believe this is book 22 in the Reed Security series. At the rate Giulia Lagomarsino is going, we'll be at book 50 and they will still be great reads. Soon the kids will be able to join their parents as operatives! Each book has an alpha male with a side of possessive craziness and 1 strong woman who loves his crazy.
This book focuses on Coop and Becky, with a side of Kayla, Coop's teenage daughter. Coop suffered from burns in an accident while serving the country. The mental scars are as

Wow! This book was WOW! Finally an angsty book that really nailed it! I have been dying to read a book with angst where the main characters do not just immediately forgive and forget about hurts caused by the other. And this book nailed it!
Oh Becky! I never knew how much I would ADORE her character until this book! She really had me completely involved with all of her feelings. I almost felt like I went through it all right along with her. I really hope she can come back from all this.

It has taken me a while to get back into reading due to a personal loss, but knowing the works of this author, I knew that I would be brought into the folds of Reed Security and that these amazing people would not disappoint me in both their loyalty and their humor. Everyone that has read this series up to this point knows about Coop and his daughter and how they came to be in this wonderful company. We even know of Becky's feelings for him as well as the mutual attraction. Now, we dive head fir ...more

Becky and Coop have been dating, but Becky can’t help but wonder if Coop will ever truly open up to her. Their relationship is at a standstill, Becky wants Coop to open up to her more, and doesn’t know if that will happen. Becky left Reed Security to get away to have space, but after talking to her roommate, she realises that she does miss both the work and the team members, but that doesn’t solve anything with Coop.

Oh, I was so excited about Coop's story! What a heck of a start to some background of what Coop has been through! What is Becky doing these days? Is she happy? What does her roommate, Delaney suggest she do? Does she? What happens when she and Coop go to Pittsburg? What does he find when he gets back? What does he do? This was a tough read for me!

I know this series is coming to an end soon. What I have loved about these books is the sense of family with this crazy, quirky lot of characters. Sometimes, there is absolute silliness, sometimes fear & sadness when mortal events occur, but in the end, they have each other. This story focuses on single father Coop, who is struggling to parent his 17 year old daughter Kayla, and Becky, the former IT guru at Reed Security. Coop has a tough time with his relationships with Becky and Kayla. He can’ ...more

Coop & Becky & Kayla

Coop is more than overprotective of his teenage daughter. He has been on the move for most of her life due to threats associated with his job with Reed Security. She's rebelling. He's locking down even tighter. He suffers from PTSD which he will never admit. He doesn't talk and share making their relationship a difficult one.

Becky and Coop have finally gotten together—kinda—after over a year of backing off. Kayla puts Becky in the middle between daughter and father. Their rel

First - you can't just start with this book. Well, you could I guess, but you shouldn't! This is book 22 in the Reed Security series. Why do I keep reading the books? They are addicting for one. Giulia Lagomarsino has a knack for bringing the characters to life, they are so real! On of the unique things about her books is that they are really funny, the interaction between all the characters and how they have different personalities. The characters carry over book to book, and grow. You get to " ...more

He is struggling with both the women in his life as his daughter wants her independence while he is determined to keep her safe and his girlfriend Becky is no longer content with a physical only relationship.

Coop: A Reed Security Series Romance by Giulia Lagomarsino. This story follows the relationship between Coop (Daniel) and Becky. Theirs’ is not an easy relationship; Coop isn’t comfortable in his own skin and has a hard time letting people in. Becky wants more but she’s isn’t quite ready to give up just yet. There are a lot of topics covered in this book and I found it very intense and enjoyable. I have read most of the books in this series, so I have been able to follow along with the other cha ...more

OMG, what a roller coaster of a ride. I have been a huge fan of Giulia’s since the beginning of this series and have loved everyone of the Reed Security men and their stories. This was no exception. True to her form of writing, there’s so much going on all the time. Never a dull moment with theReed Security family. Plenty of humor, lots of angst, steamy romance, a rebellious teenager, overprotective father, rape, and murder. Such an emotional read. My heart broke for.Becky when Coop turned on he ...more

If you're a single parent, you'll certainly have empathy for Coop, even if he doesn't go overboard. Bless his heart, he just wants to keep his daughter safe but as tight as he's holding on and sequestering her, he's going to lose her. Speaking of losing her, he's about to lose his girlfriend as well if he can't open up to her and let her in. She wants more than just a piece of him part-time. She wants it all.

I found this book a deeply emotional read that left me with tears in my eyes several times. The ending was perfect, but what happened earlier in the book left me teary-eyed and emotional. This book was full of ecstatic highs and deeply depressing lows as the characters suffer through events no family should ever have to experience. The characters were well known and liked from the previous books in the series,

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!
