Lead Security (Rogue Security and Investigation #3) by Evan Grace [arc review]

This series was my very first read by Evan Grace and I am so so very glad that I joined the band wagon. This romance had everything. A little suspense, a little drama, it was intense, had plenty of chemistry and swoon worthy moments. All the things you want on a good book!



Lead Security, Evan Grace
The blurb:
I’ve spent the last several years building my company, having zero time for a social life. I preferred it that way. After the mess my ex-wife left me with, I have no interest in anything remotely close to a relationship.

Until I meet my daughter’s new next-door neighbor.

Harley is kind, beautiful, and she’s also an erotic romance writer. To any man, she’s the perfect package. To a gun-shy man like me, she’s a one-way road to disaster.

Unfortunately for me, my daughter’s newfound friendship with Harley means I get to see more of her.

And the more I see her, the more I want her.

But my instincts are telling me there’s a danger lurking around her, following her, waiting for the right moment to strike. And the closer I get, the more I realize there’s only one way I’ll allow any threat to get near her…

and that’s over my dead body.



4.5 Stars
This was an unexpectedly nice read. I say unexpectedly because I often cringe at books with older characters (I know single dads are a very popular romance trope, it just isn't one I often love). There was no need for to worry. Harley and Jack are pure perfection! 

Harley is attracted to Jack the moment she sees him. But he is rude and unwelcoming towards her from day one and things don't get any better. 
Jack feels he is told old to start over and is very damaged from his past. His ex wife did a number on him and he is not interested on having a serious relationship ever again. He really should leave Harley alone regardless of how she makes him feel. That works for a time (unsurprisingly long time actually) but eventually their feelings get too strong to ignore. 

I found their story to be one of second chances. Poor Harley feels burnt from the past, everyone she loves leaves. And poor Jack is scared of going down the same road that hurt him so bad again. When these two finally give in sparks fly and a beautiful romance story unfolds. 

So if this sounds interesting to you go read!
I for one read this series completely out of order. As in 3-1-2 🤣
They are fabulous stand alones so that was never a problem. Go GO GO

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
