Computer security specialist Elizabeth Martinez has never been able to turn her back on her brother Benny. When his risky lifestyle finally lands him in harm’s way, Elizabeth finds herself dragged into the dangerous underworld with him and into the cross hairs of one of Miami’s death-dealing drug lords. Only after her ex-boyfriend saves her does she realize she might have no choice but to depend on the one man she has tried so desperately to forget.
Former Marine Porter Caldwell never should have let Elizabeth walk away from him all those months ago. She means more to him than anything and now that she’s in danger and turned to him for help, he won’t make that mistake again. When a local gang targets her and she’s nearly killed in a drive by shooting, Porter vows to do whatever it takes to keep her alive. Even if it means turning his back on all that he’s sworn to uphold.
What a great way to start a series, with two employees of Red Stone Security falling in love. I love both Lizzy and Porter, they’re both strong in their own rights. Lizzy has courage and possibly a touch of foolishness and definitely a small blind spot where it comes to her brother.
Full of suspense, sexy scenes and surprises, I really enjoyed the story and it definitely is a fantastic way to start a series. I quickly fell in love with the characters and that is always a plus while reading a story. There are some spots where I felt like their relationship hurt because of their actions and I really liked that it made the characters real for me. Fans of romantic suspense with a higher heat level need to be reading Katie Reus.
