Someone is trying to kill Marc Foster.
Attempted poisoning was bad enough, but when the would-be killer messes with the brakes on Marc’s precious Porsche, the art dealer admits he needs help. He just wasn’t expecting help to be quite so dark and sexy.
Royce Karras loves his job at Ward Security. He’s making up for a lifetime of bad decisions and a bloody past he’d rather forget. But Marc isn’t the spoiled rich boy he thought he’d be protecting. Sticking close to Marc as his “boyfriend” gives Royce insight into his toxic family, but it also reveals a brilliant, compassionate man who completely disarms Royce. Against his better judgment, Royce finds himself falling.
But can they find a way to make it work when Royce’s past threatens to tear their lives apart? Their futures hinges on a lost Renaissance painting, six Bichon Frises, and a pornographic Robin Hood.
No worries, right?

When I finished the previous book in the “Ward Security” series, I wanted Royce’s book so bad. He has been an intriguing character to me since the beginning. I was so curious to find out who he really was and what exactly was haunting him.

Marc is in need of a bodyguard because it seems one of his siblings is trying to make him sleep with the fishes…After 3 attempts on his life, it’s time to call in the big guns…Ward Security. Royce is assigned to be Marc’s bodyguard and in order to do so, he will have to act as his boyfriend. There isn’t much need for acting though.😜 It doesn’t take them long to set the sheets on fire!!

I think these two were definitely a perfect match. Marc needed someone like Royce in his life. Someone to take over and call the shots so he could relax. 😉 They are doing great, getting closer and closer every day and Royce even opens up about his past to Marc. But we all know things can’t stay that way forever, something has to come and screw everything up…This is where Royce lost some points with me. I hate how he played things.

Thankfully (for Royce) Marc doesn’t hold a very mean grudge. I don’t think he is capable of such a thing. 😉

Except for Royce acting like an idiot, I did enjoy this story, but I have to agree with some of the reviews I saw already. One of the best parts of this book for me was with Mrs. Peacock… in the bedroom…with the revolver!! This really made me want to re-read the whole “Unbreakable Bonds” series. And I will…😜

I can’t wait to see, whose story these awesome ladies have in store for us next. Doesn’t really matter though, because I will read them all!

I highly recommend this series and the ” Unbreakable” series! ❤️
