BLURB

Ex-Special Forces soldier Anston “Ace” Sharpe is fighting a different battle these days—one involving the world of private security across the state of Florida. As part owner of Four Kings Security, Ace and his fellow Kings tackle everything from armed transport and investigations to cyber intelligence and executive protection. Cocky, fearless, and brash, Ace isn’t afraid to take risks.

After years of working alongside his father, Colton Connolly is ready to take the helm at Connolly Maritime, but his father’s retirement is put on hold when Colton begins receiving death threats. If that isn’t bad enough, his father signs a contract with Four Kings Security to provide Colton with round-the-clock protection, despite his adamant refusal. Colton’s life has been turned upside down, the last thing he needs is a shadow, especially in the form of infuriating, sexy-as-sin Ace Sharpe, who seems to be on a mission to drive Colton mad.

Sparks fly the moment Colton and Ace meet on a sultry nightclub dance floor. But getting involved with a client, even one as fiery and beautiful as Colton Connolly, is a line Ace is unwilling to cross. Colton might be attracted to Ace, but he’d been burned before. He might be willing to put his life in Ace’s hands, but not his heart.

As the Florida nights heat up, so does their passion, and Ace and Colton are faced with a difficult choice—take the plunge and risk it all, or play it safe and walk away?

If Ace can keep a deadly threat from robbing Colton of a future….

EXCERPT

Ace’s lips curled into a wicked grin, and he dove under the water. Colton stilled, waiting for Ace to pop, but he didn’t. Jesus, the guy could hold his breath for a long time. It was like he’d vanished. Until something grabbed Colton’s legs. He released a barrage of curses as he was lifted, his arms flailing in an attempt not to lose his balance as Ace came up under him, and Colton ended up on Ace’s shoulders.

“You ass!” Colton hugged Ace’s head to keep himself steady as he sat on the man’s broad shoulders while Ace laughed himself silly. He held on to Colton’s thighs and started walking. “What are you doing?” Colton squeaked.

“Going for a walk,” Ace said as if it were obvious.

“No, you have something devious planned; I know it.”

Ace chuckled. “Are you doubting me?”

“Absolutely. Remember the pool?”

“In my defense, you were being an ass.”

Colton let out a mock gasp. “Are you using inappropriate language toward your client?”

“I’ll show you inappropriate.” Ace growled deep in his throat, and Colton shivered.

“Ace,” Colton moaned. “Please don’t make that sound while my crotch is pressed against the back of your head.”

Ace stopped moving. Before Colton could ask if he was okay, Ace sank into the water, and disappeared again, leaving Colton standing there wondering what the man was about to do next. One thing was for sure, Ace always kept him on his toes. Hands caressed his legs, and Colton groaned, his eyes closing as Ace slid his hands up Colton’s body until he resurfaced, his arms around Colton and front pressed to Colton’s back. Colton covered Ace’s hands with his and leaned back into him before turning in his arms.

“We should head back,” Ace murmured, his eyes on Colton’s lips.

“You drive me fucking crazy, you know that?” Colton huffed. He slipped his hands beneath the water and cupped Ace through his shorts, making him groan. “How about you stop teasing me, take control of these gorgeous balls, and bury yourself deep inside me.”

Ace cursed under his breath. He opened his mouth to reply, but Colton put his fingers to Ace’s lips and released his hold on him.

“You know where to find me.” Colton turned and swam back to the shore. If Ace was determined to drive him out of his mind with his sensual caresses, lingering looks, and sultry voice, then it was only fair Colton return the favor.

EXCERPT

“We’d be honored to represent you and Connolly Maritime. First, why don’t you tell us a little about your son,” King said. “I’m assigning your son’s protection to Ace, Lucky, and Red.”

He motioned to the three of them. “But one of them will personally provide round-the-clock protection to your son. To determine which one of them would be the best fit, I need to know a little more about Colton.”

Paxton nodded. “I love my son. He’s a good man, and I couldn’t be prouder of him. Speaking frankly, he can also be a little shit. Stubborn as the day is long. I wish I could say he gets it from his mother, but that would be unfair of me since he gets his stubbornness from me. From his mother, he gets his temper. His business sense is second to none, and he has a way with people, but when you get on his bad side, look out.

“He despises insincere flattery and personal questions, warm one minute and freezing your balls off the next. I already approached him with the idea of hiring private security for him over this, and he was completely against it. This is going to piss him off to no end. If there’s one thing my son won’t stand is loss of control. Whoever you send in, he’ll see as a threat to that control, and he will fight it with everything he has.”

Ace cleared his throat. “Permission to speak freely, sir?”

“Ace,” King warned.

“It’s okay,” Paxton said, putting up a hand. “You boys say what you need to say. No minced words.”

“Your son sounds like a pain in the ass.” Ace ignored King’s heavy sigh and the way he closed his eyes, clearly summing patience.

Paxton scoffed. “Understatement.”

“That’s why I’d be perfect for the job.”

King sat back and moved his gaze to the ceiling. It was clear he agreed, but that didn’t mean he had to like it. The room was quiet, all eyes on King. Several heartbeats later, he leaned forward, his gaze meeting Paxton’s and his fingers laced together on his desk.

“I won’t lie to you, Mr. Connolly. Ace’s methods are somewhat… unorthodox.”

“Meaning?”

Ace grinned. “Sir, I’m an asshole at the best of times, but I’m damn good at what I do. My job will be to protect your son, not coddle him or kiss his ass. If he wants a fight, he’ll get one, and believe me, he won’t win. I will protect him, by any means necessary.”

“In other words, you’re not going to take his bullshit.”

“Not if it interferes with me doing my job.”

“Good. We’ve already established a way to make this contract watertight, with an added clause stating he can’t fire you or cancel the contract. Anything and everything will have to be authorized by me.”

“Yes, sir.”

They all turned their attention to King, and Ace held back his smile. He could see the exact moment King made the decision. His friend actually flinched. It was subtle, but it had been there.

“Ace is correct. If your son is difficult to work with, Ace is the best King for the job. He’ll take lead on this, be your son’s personal security, assemble a team, and get started as soon as the contract is signed.”

“Excellent. I’ve forced him to take some time off under the guise he’s got vacation time he needs to use, but because he’s a stubborn pain in the ass, he’s informed me he’ll be working from home a good deal of the time. For all I know, he’ll show up at the office. Kid’s always done whatever the hell he wanted anyway.”

Ace liked the guy already. Too bad Colton was going to hate Ace. It seemed like the guy had finally met his match.

Brilliant start to this new series from Charlie Cochet

Love in Spades (Four Kings Security, #1)Love in Spades by Charlie Cochet

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have a confession to make. Although I own all the THIRDS series from Charlie Cochet, I’ve yet to read them. Yes, I know.

So this was my first experience of a full length read (I’ve read her novellas and the historical duo) with the hot alpha men and action adventure she’s so well known for.

As you can see by the rating, I loved it. Humour, action, strong willed men, ex-military, slow burn, UST, powerful emotions and a decent plot (although I did eyeball the probable ‘villain’ of the piece fairly early on, it never spoiled the tension).

Ace was just my kind of guy, attitude in abundance, confident with a touch of arrogance, sex on legs and a determination to be the best.

Colton was a perfect match, strong-willed and capable, responsible and kind, but with a core of steel that just set off all Ace’s triggers.

Together they were blazing passion and I loved that there was no wishy washy or mucking about with the whole attraction thing. When they decided it was worth breaking all the rules, they went in full tilt.

There was also good communication, both listening to the other even when hurting and willing to compromise.

The actual plot bit worked, it’s a stretch but not totally unbelievable, and sadly the kind of thing going on here does happen. Loved the setting, loved the characters and I can’t wait for more Kings.

Herc’s Mercs Series by Ari McKay: My Round Up of Books #1 to #6

The Bigger They Come (Herc's Mercs #1)The Bigger They Come by Ari McKay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this bodyguard and client falling in love during a job romance even with the slightly over the top towards the end stalker plot.

Both Cade and Jude were sympathetic characters and I liked their dynamic together and completely believed in their feelings for each other.

There’s good world building and a bunch of interesting secondary characters that I look forward to reading more about as the series progresses.

Line in the Sand (Herc's Mercs Book 2)Line in the Sand by Ari McKay

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Short but sweet second offering in the Herc’s Mercs series. I really liked both Jon and Alex and the romance felt believable and even the big jungle adventure didn’t become two outlandish.

There’s low steam in this one and lots of caregiving and a nice lack of angst and I was rooting for them from the start.

Bloody But Unbowed (Herc's Mercs Book 3)Bloody But Unbowed by Ari McKay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my favourite so far, featuring street smart but not academically smart Daryl, a potential Nobel Prize winning scientist and a whole bunch of dodgy terrorists.

It’s also the sexiest so far in the series with the two men not only getting down and dirty in the Amazonian jungle but also continuing their escapades once they got back from the rescue mission.

They have insane chemistry and there wasn’t a whole lot of angst to make the plot last longer. Each man has his hang ups but together they just work.

Once A Hero (Herc's Mercs Book 4)Once A Hero by Ari McKay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am thoroughly enjoying this series from Ari McKay as various different members of Herc’s mercenary team find themselves falling in love.

Each story has had quite different settings, even if the premise of falling in love is central and I really liked this one with former stealth specialist Ezra and his Judge employer Mason.

There was also an added bonus of a great kid who acted like a typical 12 year-old and not an overly educated or intellectual prodigy and we got to hear about the other guys in the firm still being happily in love.

Now onto book five 😉

The Harder They Fall (Herc's Mercs Book 5)The Harder They Fall by Ari McKay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This one was a bit different to the others as it involved two of Herc’s employees falling for each other in the midst of a threat when one discovered a whole load of criminal activity during routine IT work.

I liked the contrast between the two guys but I also wanted to shake Chris for his insecurities and the way he treated Jason.

Jason himself was very much a sympathetic character and his fears about being hurt all over again were completely justifiable.

The secondary plot proved a good one to hook the rest of the second chance romance on and it had a good bit of action.

Where Angels Fear To Tread (Herc's Mercs, #6)Where Angels Fear To Tread by Ari McKay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well that was action packed! Another utterly different style of meet and romance than any of the others in the series and thoroughly enjoyable.

I loved the juxtaposition of Geo’s control and the shibari ropes with the chaos and mayhem of the flight through a country in turmoil.

I loved Ellen, a feisty and strong spirited politician with lots of good advice to hand out when our mercenary got a little too caught up in his own head.

It’s also way more violent than any of the previous and I have to say,:

***SPOILER***

I felt really bad for the poor guys who didn’t make it even though they’d only just been introduced in this book!

Awesome introduction to this new series

Shiver (Unbreakable Bonds #1)Shiver by Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Epic, simply epic. I don’t think there was one part of this book I didn’t adore.

The setting, the hotter than a volcano attraction between Andrei and Lucas, the crime element, the best friends, the humour, the expectation and the explosive sex and eventual emotional romance between the MCs.

This is a fabulous introduction to the Unbreakable Bonds series and I’m so looking forward to reading the rest of the guys’ stories as they find their own HEA’s in a Cincinnati which is decidedly dangerous but incredibly exciting.
