Blurb: Ian Pierce is the chef and part owner of the hottest restaurant in Cincinnati, his chosen family is full of happy relationships, and the scruffy, snarky cop who has been haunting his dreams is one step closer to being in his bed. But everything comes crashing down when the past he narrowly escaped nine years ago comes to a deadly head.

Hollis Banner was enamored of Ian at first sight. He’s kept his distance, knowing the gorgeous, self-confident man is out of his league. Yet there’s no standing aside when Boris Jagger escapes a raid. Jagger’s world has been nearly destroyed and this time, the crime boss is coming after Ian and his friends personally.

Hollis will do whatever it takes to keep Ian safe as they escape to a safe house with a couple of Ian’s overprotective friends. And Ian finds himself in a race to unlock painful memories—memories containing information that could take down the very last of Jagger’s illegal operations forever.


Review: I absolutely loved this book, and this series, too. The only thing I have an issue with is that it is over. I’ve not read the little novellas about each couple yet, so that gives me something to look forward, but seriously, if you have not started this series yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

From the beginning, I thought, OMG, Lucas is my favorite, then it was, oh wow, I really adore Snow, and then it was all about my heart breaking and re-mending for Rowe, le’ sigh, but through it all, I was (im)patiently waiting for Ian and Hollis to get their story told…and what a great ending to for an amazing series. For real, I loved every minute of it.

And, holy moly, did Hollis turn out to be one delicious hottie….where was he hiding all that in the earlier books? We knew Ian saw something under that tired and worn down cop, but man he was all that, and then some. The chemistry between these two was off the charts…so much so that the ice towards him even thawed from Snow and Lucas. Of course, Rowe was the one who accepted the blossoming romance first, and his trek into the basement, chasing his dogs, with his hand over his eyes had me laughing out loud. Yeah, Rowe is definitely my favorite and I just adored how much face time he got in this book.

But Ian and Hollis were one very hot and sexy couple. They left nothing on the table and made the ending to this series into one steamy page turner of burning love, desire, and hot man sexiness.

I can’t believe it’s over, but trust me when I say the ride is worth the price of admission. This series very easily falls onto my “favorites’ shelf and I have no doubts it will be on yours, too.

Overall Impression: I loved it!

*I received a copy of this book from the authors in return for a fair and honest review.*

    I’m reading this one right now. Like you, I love this series! The novellas about each couple are great too. The authors are going to write a spin-off series called Ward Security so hopefully we will get to read about these guys again.
