Series: Red Stone Security Series Book #14
Author: Katie Reus
Blurb: She thought she was finally safe…
After two years of running Tegan O’Kelly could finally stop when the deadly gangster after her died. Eight months ago she put down roots in sunny Miami. For the first time in years she has friends, a job she likes and she can think about the future, not just surviving to the next day. When her car is bombed in broad daylight, she decides to stand her ground instead of running from her faceless enemy.
But a deadly enemy has her in his crosshairs…
Single father Aaron Fitzpatrick knew Tegan was trouble from the moment he laid eyes on her. Sexy trouble wrapped up in a petite, dynamite package he fantasizes about kissing far too often. So far he’s been able to keep his distance, but when he witnesses her car explode—with her close by—something protective erupts inside him. After his wife left him and their son five years ago, he’s stayed away from relationships and women, but he can’t keep his distance from Tegan. It’s clear she’s in danger and the more he learns about her, the more he knows he has to stand beside her and fight the danger hunting her.
Favorite quotes: “Listen, the past few months I might have been kinda…grumpy.”
“Now’s not a good time. I get it, but….I’m interested. And I’m not going anywhere.”
“This thing I feel for you…I’ve never felt like this about anyone, Tegan.”
Thoughts: I’ve read a number of books in the Red Stone Security series…though I may have missed one or two. By far, this one is my favorite so far. This one drew you in a little bit more than prior ones and I enjoyed the added addition of a child. Being a single dad, Aaron was just a different character, and the fact that their romance included concern for the little boy’s emotions was a plus for me. The chemistry between Tegan and Aaron really pulled at me and gave me that connection to the story and the characters, and the HEA ending was a clincher! Loved it!
