Publisher's Summary

The Walker Brothers: Tall, dark, and deadly, these three brothers run Walker security. Each brother is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.

Book one, Hot Secrets: Royce Walker, a former FBI Agent, who's opened a private security firm with his brothers, has always had the hots for the prim, proper Assistant District Attorney, but considered her hands-off because of a family connection. However, when danger threatens Lauren, he isn't willing to stand by and watch her get hurt. Now the passion for survival is only rivaled by the passion burning between them. And that passion might just be the death of them both.

This was a great action packed suspense story. The hero was strong, hot and protective and the heroine was tough, strong-willed with lots up spark. These who worked great for me. I loved that he didn't try to change her or control anything but her safety! I enjoyed the suspense and wondering who was after her. I'll definitely listen to book 2!

The narration was good, I always enjoy Eric Michael Summerer and this book was no different!

Heroine is too stupid for words

How is this woman an intelligent district attorney? She has been getting threats for weeks and is creeped out but ignores them. Then she falls for Royce after a week or two and hears some woman call him and freaks out. Royce tries to protect her but she never listens to him. She continually puts herself at risk. Honestly I didn't care if she got hurt because she was too dumb to listen to anyone who is trying to protect her. She finds out her father is the one who initially asked him to check out possible threats to her she refuses to listen to anyone including him It was a truly annoying story. Why did he like her?

I'm sorry I wasted my time on this one

Another woman with a death wish

I'm with the other reviewers - the main female character doesn't have the common sense of a child and acts like a two-year-old having tantrums. Someone threatens you, injures you, attempts to injure you again. Numerous people tell you not to go out in public, but she does it anyway - repeatedly.

Unbelievable insta-love.

Narration match story and passion

Hot, steamy, intriguing romantic suspense.

Royce Walker has the perfect job when it counts. He is allowed to use his job as the reason for protecting his long time obsession, Lauren Reynolds. She is the Assistant DA and has a boat load of trouble heading her way. But Royce maybe the one thing that no one expected to have her back (and front). The fireworks just bloom from there. Take the ride and enjoy as the climax rides its high and all the way to completion.

Jones has brought me another hot romance to get the blood flowing.

Eric Michael put that extra need in the way he voiced the story. A connection to the characters was forged with the words but bonded with his rich timber and smooth diction.

Sex-moralist representation of women

I have to admit that I stopped listening to this book within an hour or so. If you're like me and you're desperately trying to find a book where female characters are sex-positive and unapologetic about their sexuality then this isn't the book for you. Not only does the female character buy into the "oh my god I'm such a slut for wanting sex" trope, but to add offense to injury, it's the male character that spends time mansplaining why she shouldn't feel that way. Wise-strong-male helps insecure-sheltered-female see the light. If that kind of stuff bothers you, DON'T buy this book.

What a great start for this suspenseful series!

What took me so long to listen to Lisa Renee Jones? I am wondering this myself! This is the first book of the series, and if you like strong, hot, alpha men and strong-willed, spunky heroines, you will love this book. Royce is the first brother of the Walkers and one that helps to run Walker Security. Lauren is the daughter of a senator and a DA litigating a high profile, death penalty case. Who better than to threaten than Lauren? And who better to protect her than Royce? The attraction is immediate, but while they are falling in love, there are secrets being kept, lives being threatened and too many suspects to track. This is a fast paced, thrilling romantic suspense and you will love it!

Eric Michael Summerer is an amazing narrator, and is perfect for this series. He can portray the alpha male and switch to the spunky female without missing a beat. Love his narrations and can't wait to download book 2!

A steamy suspense.

3.5 Steamy romantic suspense. Appreciated a few of the twists and turns. Just as the whining was getting on my nerves the author nipped it. I have a pretty hood idea on which is the next in the series. Certainly entertains, that's always a win

3 Alpha brothers find love while doing security work

This is the first book of a series about 3 brothers who own Walker security. The plot for this one is very overdone- daughter of a US Senator works in high profile cases for a district attorney when she starts receiving threats. In walks the hero and his brothers to save her. Complete with an unstable ex fiancé, a crazy step-mother and step=brother, former cases with convicted murders, and a current case with a crazy family member. Lots of trite, unoriginal drama. On top is a poor narration job that is difficult to believe. Seeding up the performance helps to make the male voices a little less feminine. Would probably be better read than listened to to get the gist of the Walker Security brothers. Likes the more current related series about the attorneys.

Good story, weird point of view

I have loved Lisa's books but this one is told from a 3rd person perspective and it's really weird when all the others were told by the 2 characters. Other than that I enjoyed this book.
