Publisher's Summary

Dee has always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real her. She's content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn't need a man. She's terrified that all it will take is one person to make all her carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. The second Beck sees Dee, he knows that she will be his. He sees past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. She doesn't want him to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but he makes it his mission to find out. Dee can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop Beck from coming after her. She's it for him and she knows it. She's just too scared to admit it.

Contains mature themes.

MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE

Where does Beck rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In this series, Beck is right along side the other two, Axel & Cage. This story was much different than the other two but equally as great.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Beck. It was astonishing how he just kept hanging in with Dee; how he knew who she was and could see through her "happy-go-lucky, over-the-top glee" to her pain and had the patience and tenacity to not only wait her out, but gently and sometimes not so gently push her beyond her masks.

What about Abby Craden and Sean Crisden ’s performance did you like?

All of it throughout the series.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but not possible.

Any additional comments?

Not sure why we (meaning those of us who got caught up in this series) had to loose one of our own (no spoilers) but I guess if the rest of the books get published in audio, which I'm praying for, we'll find out.

IT TOOK YEARS BUT BECK FINALLY GETS HIS HEA

You know what you're going to get with this series..... hot Alpha types, a drama filled listen, hot sex, passion and a group of former US Marines who love each other like brothers and will do anything for each other. But the one thing I wasn't prepared for this time was the bitter heartache when the author kills off a main player..... that was a tough pill to swallow. I thought Harper Sloan was brave to do this and to shake up characters and to introduce other characters - so kudos to you...... even if I hated it.

Dee is feisty but she has had a hard life and life just keeps kicking her in the face with more heartbreak until there's nothing left except a mask cleverly erected to protect her from anymore hurt and pain but behind it she's withering away. Her 'so called' friends can't see it but Beck does and he's desperately trying to hold on to her, to show her how much he cares and that he'll be there no matter what but sometimes love just isn't enough and Dee find out you have to hit rock bottom before you can climb..... then soar.

This is a heartbreaking story but it's also one that shows us when a Corps Security guy falls in love it's forever - no matter the cost, consequences or outcome, it's unconditional and Beck really had to hold on and ride the emotional wave that was Dee in order to be there at the end when it all came crashing in around her. Plenty of sex, humor, romance by the bucketful, suspense, drama and angst as Dee stirs up trouble which leads to a lot of danger, tears, shocking events and a death. Good character growth with Dee too.

Dual POV, good narrators, a story that goes back in time then spans a few years giving fans of the series up-to-date news of the previous couples, a strong but vulnerable heroine and a sexy, loyal and caring hero and together their explosive in the bedroom, the kitchen etc., etc., etc.

Worth a credit? It may take me a bit of time to listen to these books as there are so many good books being released everyday and sometimes I'm in the mood for Vampires, or Billionaires, or Wolves, or Bikers..... well you get the drift but it's a series I will always come back to because they're all one big tortured happy family. Creditworthy - you bet.

Please, some common sense would be nice

I am a very emphatic person. I have shed more tears over books and movies than anyone I know but, this story is just stupid. I totally get that women can have relationship issues due to the relationships with their fathers; I myself did not have a healthy relationship with my father that caused issues. But good God, as a. grown woman you get over it. Especially if you haven't been around the man in 10 years.
(spoiler alert )
I also know that PTSD is a real issue but this woman who gets beaten and raped by her best friends husband, after they have been married for two years, does not do the smart common sense thing and report the event to the police. No, she says nothing to anyone, not even to her best to that is married to this monster. She allows her friend to be stuck in that relationship for four more years through beating after beating until her darn near kills her. She could have had the man arrested, saved her friend and started healing from her trauma a decade before she does in the book. Come on, so stupid. I usually love this author's work but this story is rediculous. Also, the male narrator's women voices are so bad they make me cringe.

A strong man

I loved how Beck never gave up on D and his love for her even though it took him 2 yrs. to get through to her he was always there. I love the character of these military men so strong and full of promise in this story.

Through the storms

When life sends you through storm after storm, you have to have faith that a blessing is on the other side. This series is all about facing demons and coming out on the other side. Denise and Beck's story was turbulent and sweet. Beck is a solid rock that withstands everything that is thrown at him. To know that you have friends that you consider family who are totally oblivious to your inner pain and struggle can be mind boggling. But to have a man willing and able to see you through those times is a miracle. This book had a few surprises that I was not expecting. The author writes with realistic suspense and tragedy plots. Sometimes it is heart breaking. I actually shed a few tears. Can't wait to read the next one.

I'm Sensing a Pattern: It Isn't Good


The books in Harper Sloan's "Corps Security" are interchangeable in my opinion. The characters, the situations in the outcomes… All predictable and easily forgettable, in my opinion. Please see my other reviews… They too are repetitious.

NOTE: violence, strong language and sexual situations
