When the cards are stacked against you, the Kings will even the odds.
Former Special Forces medical sergeant Russell “Red” McKinley knows a thing or two about wounds, like the fact some can take a lifetime to heal, if they heal at all. The scars Red carries run deep, and living with PTSD often means battling the memories of his past. Injuries he received while working an executive protection case with fellow Kings and co-owners of Four Kings Security, have once again forced past heartaches to the surface, but Red is determined not to let it derail his blossoming romance with sweet and sexy fashion photographer Lazarus Galanos.
Laz can’t deny there’s something special developing between him and Red, but Laz has wounds of his own. He’s hesitant to jump into a new relationship after his recent explosive breakup. Experience has taught Laz to doubt his judgement when it comes to men. Guys who seem too good to be true, usually are, and no one appears more perfect than Red.
When an attempt is made on Laz’s life, Red is determined to keep him safe. Laz may not be a client, and Red is still off duty, but Laz is one of their own, and nothing means more to the Kings than family. While an investigation is underway, Red and Laz are growing closer, but can they find a way to help each other heal and take a chance on love, or will their fears and insecurities cost them more than their future together?
I really love this author and everything she writes. I really enjoyed the previous book in this series “Love in Spades”, and this one was just as good…maybe even a bit better 😉 That probably has to do with the fact, that I am getting to know these “Kings” better and as a result I am falling in love with each and every one of them!
This time it’s Red and Laz’ turn. Those of you who have read the first book, already know Red and Laz, and those who haven’t should go back..and read the first book. I think it would be best to read this series in order, you might get confused otherwise. 🙂
It was very obvious in the first book, that these two guys shared some amazing chemistry. Now.. with Laz his life being in danger and Red trying to keep him safe, they have a chance to explore these sparkles between them…And boy do they. I was quite surprised with the dirty mouth on Laz!!
“Fuck me until all I can feel is your big, hard cock inside me, imprinting me, marking me. Leave your mark on me so everyone knows I’m yours. Always yours.”
I am a huge fan of “dirty talk” so, of course, I read this book with a big smile on my face. 😉 I don’t want to spoiler too much of the book, so I am gonna keep this one short 😉 There is some little misunderstanding between these two towards the end, but thankfully it wasn’t stretched out, and both of them came to their senses really fast.
I am extremely happy with this series and I definitely recommend it to everyone who loves a little mystery, fun, steam, and action in their gay romance!!
I myself can’t wait for Lucky and Mason’s book, because I have a feeling that one is gonna be my favorite…although I am sure King’s book is gonna rock too!!!
Highly recommended! 💕
