A triumphant return to the Ward Security Series

57462107._SY475_Wicked Outlaw by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Ward Security series just works for me.

I can’t say exactly what it is, but the combo of high octane adventure, steaming hot chemistry and enough code names and chaos to sink a battleship, is just my jam.

Here we get Cole’s story and we also get to meet up again with Noah’s ex Army Ranger and occasional friend with benefits JB.

JB has a ranch in Texas and Cole is sent there to hole up after a sting puts him in the eyeline of a dodgy dude.

What happens next is a really beautiful romance, which starts out as a friendship between two people who just connect emotionally.

As Cole gets closer to JB, and as strange things start happening on his family’s ranch, it becomes clear that his feelings might be more than just admiration for a hard-working guy.

I felt this sexual awakening thread was done very well. Cole and JB click from the off and it didn’t seem like too much of a stretch for Cole to realise he was fascinated with JB and had more than just friendly feelings.

The catalyst for their relationship switching to the physical worked for me, it’s an adrenaline high kick where there was a physical risk to both men and I could see emotions taking over.

That it all happens over a relatively short time period doesn’t feel unusual either, it seems way longer, as if they’ve been dancing around each other for ages.

I was so happy when Jocelynn and Rinda said they were returning to this series.

Now I’m really hoping it’s kicking off a second spin off as I want ranch foreman Owen to get his second chance with the love of his life too!

Blurb

Word-slinger. Purveyor of truth. Jaded heart.

By day, Felix Franklin is an investigative journalist. By night, he produces Sinister in Savannah, an investigative podcast, with his two best friends. Felix’s life revolves around three principles: fortune favors the bold, honesty is everything, and love is for schmucks.

The podcast is back to investigate allegations that a local businessman is dabbling in money laundering. On the surface, everything about Cameron Spencer, aka The Auto King, appears to be perfect. The trio of trouble quickly learns all that glitters is not gold. Seeking the truth will challenge Felix’s convictions and put his life in grave danger. The biggest threat to his well-being isn’t an unknown villain; it’s the reappearance of his first and only love.

Jude Arrow had it all: great looks, charming personality, and a lucrative career as Atlanta’s hottest news anchor. So, why had he recently relocated to Savannah? When the two reporters are forced to work together, Felix will get a chance to ask him. The answer will stun Felix until he remembers not to believe anything that comes out of the heartbreaker’s pretty mouth.

Love and hate are two sides of the same coin and just as conflicting as the battle of wills that ensues. Will the chip on Felix’s shoulder save him from trusting Mr. Wrong or ruin his chances with Mr. Perfect?

Sinister in Savannah series is a fictional podcast exploring the city’s most nefarious crimes with Southern-fried snark. The books explore friendship, love, loss, and the irrepressible human spirit. Mr. Perfect is book two of three. While each book is written about a different couple, the series should be read in order due to continuing storylines. Sinister in Savannah is an LGBT romantic suspense series with mature language and sexual content intended for adults eighteen and older.

Excerpt

Felix relaxed his grip and released Jude’s lapels. He took a step back, attempting to break the embrace, but Jude only tightened his fingers.

“Any harder and you’ll leave marks,” Felix warned in a teasing tone that contradicted the emotions riding him hard. There’s that damn phrase again.

Jude rubbed his nose along the sensitive flesh beneath Felix’s ear. “Good.”

Felix shivered and Jude chuckled.

“Less than four minutes,” Felix said.

Jude released Felix’s hips and headed for the same door Rocky had exited through. Felix waited a heartbeat before turning and following Jude. The corridor on the other side of the door was illuminated by cobalt blue diamond sconces on the wall and tape lighting in the same hue running along the edges of the floor. The club music piped through the hidden speakers was heavy on the bass. Excitement crackled and popped along his spine as Felix’s heart tried to match the tempo. They’d only made it a few feet before Jude stopped suddenly and shoved Felix against the wall.

“Why are you really here?” Jude asked.

Felix raised his chin and stared defiantly into Jude’s eyes. “The same reason you are.”

“Yeah?” Jude asked, pushing his knee between Felix’s legs until Jude’s thick thigh rested just under Felix’s taut balls. “You’re looking to fuck?”

“Someone who isn’t you,” Felix countered.

I absolutely loved Daniel in the latest MC Securities entry from Ruby Moone

70012269_592539947817803_4029398670540537856_nLoving Daniel by Ruby Moone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the paraphrased words of the Kaiser Chiefs – “Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, do you know what you do to me?”

This, the third in what has been an excellent first contemporary romance series from the usually historical pen of Ruby Moone, was my absolute favourite.

There’s something uniquely appealing about a ‘hard man’ who falls in love and will do anything for his loved one and Daniel’s been doing just that for his second cousin Christian since he was forced to walk away from him 12 years earlier.

One of the main influences in this story is in a coffin when it starts, and I’m quite glad about that because I’d have liked to put Daniel’s father in one myself.

The feel of the dodgy criminal underworld of Manchester was so very well done and from events in this book, I suspect it’s not actually the last time we’ll venture to those parts.

Or rather, I hope it isn’t because I really want to know more about Eric Daly and I’m fascinated with both Asher and Tassos.

Moderately steamy, but chock full of all the emotions, this is a fab read.
