**Happily Ever After Book Nerd Blog Favorite**

Series: Red Stone Security #1
Rating: 5 stars - loved it!

He’d do everything in his power to protect her, but he had the feeling she wasn’t going to make it easy for him.

Elizabeth has been taking care of her brother for years and no one understands how important it is for her to look after Benny. Even when running to Benny’s rescue puts Elizabeth in the sights of notorious drug cartel leader, Orlando. I really enjoyed the action and suspense in this one as Elizabeth tries to run from the bad guy who is obsessed with having her. Considering that Elizabeth works for Red Stone Security, I would have thought she would lean on her workplace for help instead of just depending on Porter — not that Porter can’t take care of her just fine.

Always helping Benny is the reason that Elizabeth and her ex, Porter, broke up. Porter was attracted to Elizabeth from the first time her saw her at Red Stone and even working together couldn’t keep him away. But he couldn’t stand by while Elizabeth risked her life to help her brother. I understand why Porter was so frustrated by Benny — he drove me up the wall for endangering Elizabeth — and I admired his determination to stand by Elizabeth. Now that they’re are back together he’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep her and protect her brother. Porter was wonderfully protective, strong, and sexy.

The pace and writing kept things going to the end and though there were a few moments when Elizabeth’s stubborn independence got in the way she also learns to lean on other people when it comes to helping Benny. I enjoyed that Elizabeth didn’t fight Porter too much on her protection and she seemed to quickly understand how in over her head she was. On the same note, both Porter and Elizabeth are so set on protecting each other that they don’t do the best job communicating all the facts.

Overall, I loved this book and it was a great fast paced read to fill an hour or two. I can’t wait to read about more of the Red Stone Security guys and get more wonderful suspense from Katie Reus.
