Former Special Forces brothers-in-arms now working together to provide an elite security service in the southern city of Richland.
Gabe Malloy, dedicated to his brothers, spent his weekends with cheap booze and easy women. When some of his friends finally settled down, he wondered if he would ever find the woman of his dreams. He just never expected to encounter her in an alley.
Jennifer Lambert worked as a social worker for the city and would often take food to the elderly residents in her building. One night, in an alley behind a restaurant, she was startled by a tall, handsome man wanting to assist. Giving him the cold shoulder, she left...but dreams of him followed her long into the night.
Gabe knew the independent Jennifer was a woman worthy of knowing, but convincing the beauty that she needed him was the challenge. Raising her young brother plus the responsibilities of the elder center had kept her from looking for love...but she took a chance on Gabe.
Now that he found her, can he keep her safe when someone threatens her and those she loves? Calling upon his brothers, Alvarez Security races to save her before it is too late.

“I also told the little lad that people, just like the glass, can become polished and beautiful from the rough effects of life.”
Great narration. I enjoyed this book from beginning to beautiful epilogue.
I loved the romance with a bit of danger. I can't wait to read the stories of Gabe's brothers-in-arms.
This is the first book I've read by this author. I cannot wait to read more. This story was extremely well written. It made me giggle , full on laugh, get mad and cry! The characters are caring and unafraid to express their feelings. Fantastic read about ex military and heartfelt. Those elderly in this story made me realize my parents could be up their in age but don't count them out!
I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series...the author did wonderful job with this story.
I'm an avid reader/listener to a wide variety of books. I enjoy books from historical romance to science fiction.
I love this book, everything about it was perfect, including the narration! Suuch a heart tugging story, in a very good way. One of my favorite parts was when the senior men, retired military, stepped forward announcing their military branch and rank, wanting to be part of saving Jennifer and Ross. I wouldn't change a thing about this book, it was perfect all around. Looking forward to continuing with the series!
