Yeah, their both flawed and needy and sexy time ensues, but I've had a belly full of this kind of plot in the numerous cop shows that crop up year after year. I read to get away from this crap.

Events during all three books overlap and while reading all three in order will give you a better feel for the story overall, it isn't strictly necessary. I adore the way Lisa Marie Rice writes her male leads as super tough alpha males. However, beware! It is possible to overdose on her books to the point where the plots basically are the same (tough Alpha male meets tiny beautiful female who is in some sort of dangerous situation which he then solves using his vast experience from his previous military career). They are, however, books I'm happy to read/listen to more than once provided I allow a decent gap between repeats! Alexandra R Josephs is a brilliant narrator. Her husky male voice is perfect for the male leads in this series and I'd happily listen to her again. Thoroughly recommended!
