Publisher's Summary

As a former member of the United States Secret Service, I'm no stranger to putting my life on the line in the name of duty. Having left the nation's capital to re-settle in Pittsburgh, the skills I acquired during my tenure in Washington have made me a valued member of the team at Jameson Force Security. But when the president comes seeking a favor to protect his niece, I find myself on the fast track back to the Oval Office.

Simply put...she's beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn't believe she's in any real danger, the president isn't willing to take chances with her life.

As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I'd ever thought possible. When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I've fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I'll rain down on those that threaten her.

Action Filled Romance!

Lots of action and excitement in the newest addition to the Jameson Force Security series. Previous characters from the first book appear, but Code Name: Sentinel can definitely be enjoyed as a standalone.

I really enjoyed this protector/forced proximity romance featuring Cruce and Barrett. They had wonderful chemistry and I loved the build up and tension between them. When things finally boil over with them, it was H-O-T!! I could see many of the scenes playing out in my mind like a movie. Parts of the book were a little predictable and others resolved a little too easily, but it didn't diminish my enjoyment. The epilogue left me with a smile on my face and I'm excited to see that Saint's story is next!

Jason Clarke continues to be one of my very favorite male narrators! He was amazing as Cruce and really embodied the over protective alpha hero so well. I love his range, switching from playful to serious, and also tackling both male and female voices perfectly. Even his British accent as Kynan had me swooning. Lucy Rivers' performance as Barrett unfortunately fell a little flat for me. I have listened to other titles narrated by her, but this time it just didn't work. I found her voice too monotone and her male and female voices were almost the same. When I read the ebook I loved Barrett (even if she does sometimes make some questionable decisions), but I just couldn't get on board with her chapters in the audiobook. Still a compelling and action filled listen, but I enjoyed Cruce's chapters much more.

My dream man is even dreamier with that voice.

At the very basics this is a bodyguard romance novel with sexy times thrown in. However there is just so much more to this!!! Lots of intrigue, even involving the president. I loved that Barrett was smart and sexy. Perfect heroine! Cruce is the perfect alpha male who can still express his inner voice. I loved that we got to hear both sides of the story.

Side note: I got the audio of this and it was amazing. That voice of Cruce.... just made my dream man even more dreamier! Definitely give it a shot!

Another perfect addition to the series!

Code Name: Sentinel is the second book in the Jameson Force Security series by the talented and fabulous Sawyer Bennett. I have read every book of Sawyer's and she never disappoints with the sexiness, humor, foreplay, suspense and lust.

Story:
We met Cruce in Code Name: Genesis and I've been thinking about him since! He's new to the team, but he quickly made friends and works well with the team. He used to be Secret Service and when he gets a call from the president, he doesn’t think twice, he'll do anything he asks. His niece is in danger and she needs protection. She's a brilliant scientist and she's working on a formula that will literally change the world. Cruce is just the man for the job, even if Barrett is sexy, nerdy and beautiful. He'd lay down his life for hers. When he takes her away, just the two of them, she becomes more than a job. She's a woman who he starts to fall for. Barrett isn't sure if it's the circumstances or the man, but she can't seem to stop looking at him. She loves that he makes her stop and enjoy life. But when the danger finds them, will they make it out alive? Will they realize their feelings are real and forever? I’m loving these Jameson Force guys! Cruce is fiercely loyal and takes his job seriously. If I were in trouble, I'd want him at my six. Or, you know, anywhere near me :). Overall, I loved Cruce and Barrett and thought their story was sexy and romantic! I loved the added suspense and seeing some favorites and meeting some new characters. I'm already looking forward to Code Name: Heist.

Audio: I'm a huge fan of Jason Clarke's. His voice always gives me tingles and I love that I never think of another character he's narrated. He was all Cruce. I liked Lucy's voice as the female characters, but I didn't like the voice she used for the men. It just sounded off and weird to me.

Another great addition to the series!

I'm a huge fan of Ms. Bennett’s Wicked Horse series by I have to admit that the Jameson Force Security guys are growing on me fast. There is guaranteed action and intrigue in these pages! While this book could be read as a standalone, you don’t want to miss out what happened in book one, so my advice is to start from the beginning.

Cruce, a former Secret Service agent is now with Jameson Force Security but when a message comes in from the president he knows things are about to get complicated.

The President has reached out on behalf of his niece, Barrett, who is a brilliant scientist and is working on a secret formula that could affect many lives. He asks for their help to get to the bottom of the threat and protect her life.

I loved the entire story, the intrigue and the action, and also the connection between Barrett and Cruce.

Audio review: The audio book was well done and truly brought the story to life.

The Narration Threw Me Off!

This is book 2 in the Jameson Force Security series and can absolutely be read as a stand alone although I recommend reading the first book just so you know how the company started and the relationships between characters. This one is about Cruce Britton and Barrett Alexander. Cruce thought he had left Washington behind after leaving the secret service but the president comes asking for a favor-he doesn't feel like he can refuse. Barrett is the leading scientist for clean energy who is on the verge on making a breakthrough that could change the world. But now there are other factions who may want what she has discovered. And it is Cruce's job to keep her safe. And when they realize that they are more than just attracted to each other, he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Cruce and Barret made me laugh right from the start and I loved the banter they have together. Along with the unbelievable chemistry!! She is beyond smart and tends to stay in her own little world while working but Cruce figures out ways to manage that while not making her angry which I really liked. Cruce is this unbelievably protective and yet sweet man and you can't help but like him. Barrett is definitely a braniac but she is still down to earth and likable-which isn't usually the case with people like that. The story itself was beyond great-my only drawback was because I listened to it on audio. The dual narration got to me a bit. Jason Clarke does a great job-I loved his voice and his accent for Kynan was off the charts hot! The problem I had was the going back and forth between him and Lucy Rivers. Her narration for Barrett was great but hearing him and Lucy go back and forth for the male characters (and her difference in accent for Kynan as well) just really bugged me. I had a hard time with listening because of it but pushed through because I was really enjoying the actually the story. Other than that-storyline was great!

Amazing Story. Small issue with Narration

Loved the story. it kept me intrigued the entire time. The male narrator was amazing and kept me engaged. The major issue with the performance is the female narrator. She seemed unnatural and almost robotic. It was worse when she spoke as the male character. It was so distracting that I had to play back several key spots as her voice lulled you in to forgetting you were listening to a novel.

Narration was excellent

One thing I love about this authors books is her ability to have me wanting more and surprised with unexpected events. She pulls you in right from the start and keeps you going to the very last page. This is the second book in the Jameson Force Security and I found this book to not fully have the above. After finishing the first book in the series, and this one can be read/listened to without reading the first, I could not wait to read this one. I found myself slightly disappointed. While there was mystery and twists, there was too much that was predictable to me. There is one point in the story that the author could have changed the way the scene went down to have left more of a mystery. At times it felt as if the author was rushed in needing to get this book finished as it didn’t have what I’ve come to expect from this author. I still loved the overall storyline and the narrators did a great job in bringing the story to life that I am still giving it four stars. The narrators added to the story with how the listener could really visualize what was happening from the frustrations and laughter. I am still looking very much to the next book in the series and I do hope that this was just an off book for the author.

Code name: awesome

If you are hunting a book that has lots of twist and turns and some great romance thrown in too, This is the book for you!! When Bennett’s life is in jeopardy her uncle needs to pull in the big guns , protect her at all cost , and that’s where Cruce from Jamerson Force enters her life. Can Cruce stay professional and not give in to the feelings he is having for her, and not be distracted and stay focused on what’s important , keeping her alive ? Will it be too much for the both of them? Is Bennett going to end up being the one who puts her own life in jeopardy ? The narration by Jason Clarke and Lucy Rivers is perfect, so if you were ready for a great story and to be completely hooked to the end , this is the book for you!

Great performance

Holy wow! Bennett did it again. This book has it all. There’s a brilliant woman, alpha male, and lots of action. Get your mind out of the gutter (well, not really) cause this book is a thrill ride. Can’t wait to see where this series goes next!

The performers did a wonderful job. I found their voices fit each character perfectly. What an amazing performance.

EXCELLENT Listen!!

Kudos Ms. Bennett for writing this fabulous story, and to Jason Clarke, Lucy Rivers for performing the story so phenomenally!! Congratulation on this fabulous corroboration.

After reading a good many books by Sawyer Bennett, I have come to the realization that she does not know how to create a character that is less than phenomenal, be it a lawyer, a hockey player, a club owner, or as in her latest release Code Name: Sentinel, the 2nd book in her Jameson Force Security series, a secret service agent and scientist.
The heroine in this fabulous book is Barrett Alexander. She is the scientist of this duo. She is one kick a…butt smart cookie. The latest project she is working on will have the capacity to help the world. However, someone does not want to help the world and will do anything they can to stop her, including kidnap her.
Cruce Britton may have retired from the Secret Service, but the President knows Cruce is still the man to protect his niece, Barrett. The President calls in favors and requests Cruce and Jameson Force Security to protect Barrett when intel comes to the President indicating that she is in danger.
I really loved this book. I especially liked the big, bad, take no prisoners, secret service agent, Cruce fall. Fall in love that is. I really got a kick out of watching Cruce do everything he could possibly think of not to fall. I also loved watching him go all “mother hen/papa bear” on Barrett when she barely came up to breathe or eat, let alone rest. She is one dedicated woman!!! And, Cruce is determined NO ONE is going to get near her to kidnap her. But your know what they say about the best made plans….
I do know that when I was gifted with a copy of this book, and read the blurb, I could not wait for it to hit my Kindle so I could start reading it.
And after reading it.... I could not wait to listen to it yet again!!! It was just that good!! The narrators, Jason Clarke, Lucy Rivers were pure perfection telling the story. They brought it so much more to life. I could actually see what was happening in my mind. Someday, this may get me into some major trouble when I really start seeing the scene and I am say driving...
In my opinion, this book is phenomenal, and I can’t wait to read and listen to the rest of the series. All of the characters we have been introduced to seem so interesting and I cannot wait to read more about them. I wonder who will be next.
Thank you for reading my review. I really think that if you like romance, with a side of intrigue, this Audible book is definitely for you.

Suspense, action and sexy times

I am loving this new series from Sawyer Bennett. Action, romance and a team of military and security specialists that fight for what they believe in. Code Name Sentinel follows ex Secret Service Agent and the Nation’s hero Cruce Britton, a new recruit to Jameson Force Security. Cruce and his team are asked as a personal favour to the President, to protect his niece, Barrett Alexander. Barrett is a renowned Scientist on the brink of changing the world with her theories about free energy. Oblivious to anything except her work, Barrett is loathe to change her routine and be constantly shadowed by security, but for her Uncle she relinquishes. When the threat to her safety becomes very real things start heating up, in more ways than one. Suspense, action, and let’s not forget the sexy time, in this romantic thriller that had me on the edge of my seat. Sawyer Bennett can spice up any story, and she does this to perfection with Cruce and Barrett, two strong characters that perfectly compliment each other. Another winner for me. I loved it, and of course Jason Clarke and Lucy Rivers narrated to perfection.

Perfection ❤️

Jason Clarke did a fantastic job narrating for Cruce. He brought the character to life, he was dominant when needed and loving with his Barry. Lucy Rivers embodied Barrett showing us (the reader) her quirky nerdy side as well as her vulnerability during her kidnapping. Sawyer Bennett hit the ball out of the park with this story. It was perfection. The total package.
