Blurb: Geoffrey Ralse is known for being the life of the party. He loves the club scene, hanging with his friends, and flirting with whomever catches his eye. He certainly isn’t going to stop living his life just because some would-be stalker starts sending him threats.
But it all changes when Geoffrey is drugged and wakes up half naked in his own home with a new message from his stalker.
He needs help and there’s only one person he trusts…
Protective Agent Sven Larsen has been fighting Geoffrey’s flirtatious advances for months, even though he’s impossibly drawn to the man. There’s no way he can be around him twenty-four/seven and not finally crack. But one look at Geoffrey’s haunted eyes, and he knows there’s no way he’s letting Geoffrey walk out of Ward Security without him.
Even if it means breaking his own rules, he will keep Geoffrey safe.
Trigger warning: There is a very short section with sexual assault that some could find upsetting.
Review: Finally, the long-awaited side series from the Unbreakable Bonds series. Considering Rowe was my absolute favorite character from the original series, it was only logical that I would jump at the chance to catch glimpses of him, and his guys from his business, Ward Security. The verdict is…good, very good. I liked both Geoffrey and his big Norwegian bodyguard, Sven. Who wouldn’t fall for a real life Viking?
I knew there would be more to Geoffrey than what we originally saw when he was hot for Snow, and then when he assisted with the child trafficking ring. He was kind of an enigma, and it was hard to take his goofy ways seriously. But Psycho Romeo changed all of that. Geoffrey is more than meets the eye, he is more than a rich party boy, he is more than his constant social media updates, and he just needed someone to see the real him. And Sven does. But he makes him work for it…a little.
Sven is so sweet, for a giant, but he can also be ruthless. He also has some past issues to overcome, a lot of them dealing with his enormous size and strength. Fortunately, it doesn’t last long before these two start to burn up the sheets, in between trying to keep Geoffrey safe from his unknown and escalating stalker. I admit I was surprised when the stalker’s identity was revealed, but then I thought back and realized that there were clues that I just didn’t pick up.
This is a promising start to the Ward Security series. It was like a homecoming revisiting Rowe and Andrei and I look forward to seeing where the next installment takes us. I have some ideas, but I will keep them close to my vest, for now. Enjoy.
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
