Publisher's Summary

As the fixer for Blackbridge Security, Quinten Lake is the man that comes in and cleans up after people make stupid decisions. Which means he didn’t want to be the one teaching lustful women gun safety. There were guys on the team better suited for the task.

Get in and get out, that’s his motto, something he lives by not only at work, but also in his personal life. And he could be doing just that if it weren’t for the internet. 

But if #BlackbridgeSpecial wasn’t trending online he would’ve never met Hayden Prescott. He wouldn’t be wondering why she won’t make eye contact with him. He’s supposed to teach her the skills to protect herself, but his ego is encouraging him to be her means of protection. She isn’t impressed, and he’s left wondering if she’ll ever open her eyes and finally see him.

Great Listen

Loved this book. I wish it had been longer but it was good all the same. The narration was great, good story line and OMG the foul mouthed bird is absolutely hilarious. Seriously funny!

He may not have been a trainer would she train him

Quinten and Hayden

The narrators for this series are great. So easy to picture the characters--male or female (or bird)

He was not a gun safety trainer. If only he could convince his boss of that. Meeting Hayden might make having to do the class worthwhile. Something was bothering her more than the basic reason she'd made the cut for the class. What? He didn't date but his usual didn't seem right this time.

She had loved just relaxing at home. She rarely went out unless her BFF dragged her out hoping she'd meet some guy. That was before. Now she didn't want to go home at all. So--gun safety-- if she could even pick up a gun.

His feelings were different. Her feelings were different. Now what? Things were happening that could put her in danger and them closer.

The characters are great, lots of the usual banter with the team and, of course, Puff. Plenty of humor, danger, steam, with a great storyline. Never a dull page. I recommend it to fans and new readers alike--who are guaranteed to become fans

Risk

So many risks. The narrators do a great job showcasing this story in all the appropriate tones, and the entire character set.
Love this audible book.

Simply Love.......

Love the Audio version it was hard to turn it off when life got in the way. The audio brought the characters to life for me and it was fantastic.

Welcome back to BBS. I was excited to read this story. When opposites attract can love be found? BBS has decided to teach a gun safety class for women with Quentin as the teacher. Hayden is afraid of guns but get dragged to class by her friend. Will Quentin be able to get Hayden over her fear of guns? One click recommended.

I love this story and I'm excited for the next book. The book had wonderful characters and the reading flow was easy to follow along.

FanDamnTastic

Jacob Morgan....sigh!

I am so in love with this series and I want every BBS employee to have their own book. EVERY ONE!

Quinten, the fixer not the weapons expert, gets tasked with teaching a gun safety class to women. #BlackbridgeSpecial. Hayden, the quiet mouse with an attitude, gets suckered into this class by her bestie, Parker after Hayden's house gets broken into and Hello, hot men.

This was such a great book. I love the brotherhood of BBS and their dynamics within the company. The way that these men can rib each other but yet get the job done. And that damn bird. Puff Daddy is such a scene stealer.

It all started with a break in

Hayden Prescott didn’t feel safe in her house. What used to be her sanctuary now felt like her prison. She no longer felt safe and the lingering doubts that someone was watching her threatened to consume the air from her lungs. Desperate to regain part of her life and sense of normalcy back she reluctantly agrees to attend a class at a shooting range with her friend. She was slightly intrigued after the viral posts of the Blackbridge Special hotties and Quinten’s commanding nature gave her a sense of security. Events start to unfold that push them closer together and Quinten leaps into action to protect his woman. Marie James has created a brotherhood of alpha men any woman would gladly sign a membership card for since their safety is all but guaranteed.

All about the risks.

Another amazing Blackbridge book! In Calculated Risk we get Quinten and Hayden’s story. Quinten is forced to take on a gun safety and shooting class. This class is full of women. But the one who catches his interest is Hayden. Hayden is standoffish and wants nothing to do with the class or Quinten. But as an alpha Blackbridge guy Quinten makes it impossible for her to ignore him. Loved this story. I can’t wait for more of Marie’s books to be available on Audio!

Hate to Love romance

There needs to be more star because this book was much more than 5 🌟. Puff Daddy is a show stealer but Hayden and Quinten make the book. Hayden is an accountant that stumbles upon her boss's nefarious activities and gets put into the cross hairs of his partners. Quinten is teaching a gun safety class that Hayden is dragged to and when the two meet, they get off to a very bumpy start. Toss in crazy PD, a quirky friend and masked men to get one well written story. This book is brought to life with the fantastic voices of Jacob Morgan and Callie Dalton.
