Publisher's Summary

Never, ever fall for your brother’s annoying, infuriating, gorgeous best friend.

Gia Norcross’ life is exactly how she likes it. She has a successful PR firm in San Francisco, a beautiful apartment, a loving family of overprotective brothers, and her fabulous designer shoe collection. Perfection. Sure, occasionally she has to deal with her aggravating nemesis who happens to be her brother’s best friend. Saxon Buchanan: former Delta Force, tall, rich, handsome, bossy, and knows how to work her last nerve.

She’ll never, ever admit to anyone that most days, she isn’t sure if she wants to punch the arrogant, tattooed, suit-wearing know-it-all...or kiss him.

After a military career spent in a covert special ops team doing hard, dirty, and very classified missions, Saxon Buchanan is happy working at Norcross Security as the company’s top troubleshooter. He also enjoys the perks of civilian life. That includes sparring with smart, sexy Gia of the wide brown eyes, luscious curves, and sharp tongue. He’s spent half his life fighting the pull of his best friend’s little sister.

But seeing a man aim a gun at Gia changes everything.

When Gia’s troubled childhood best friend drags her into a really, really bad situation, soon bullets are flying, precious gemstones are missing, and Gia’s in danger. Saxon’s done pushing away the one woman he’s ever wanted. He’ll do everything to protect her, and he’s not letting anything get in his way: not the bad guys, not his best friend, and especially not Gia.

Enemies to Lovers Tropes are so fun!!

If an Author can pull off a good Enemies to Lovers trope with a well executed banter and sass between the two main characters, then you have an automatic winner of a book. I loved Saxon and Gia more than I expected. We got a tease of them in Book #1 of the Norcross Security Series, The Investigator and the tension felt between these two characters carried right into The Troubleshooter. Fun level, High! Heat level, Smokin'! Supporting cast, always a pleasure! There was a scene where Gia's actions got me scratching my head a bit, and Saxon was a bit possessive alpha-male at times, but it didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of the book, and I give it a solid 4.5 stars. I'm already looking forward to a re-listen of this book. Stella Bloom, one of my all time fav narrators, always does such a brilliant job, and Teddy Hamilton does really knows how to portray Alpha Males in this series.

Love the story and the series

Love Anna Hackett books...this series I get the ebook and listen to the audible. I love Stella Bloom. She is so talented. Does great women and men’s voices.But Teddy Hamilton made Saxon sounds nasal and Gia whiny. The first time I just quit. This time bored with COVID and a Texas ice storm I stick through it. Please Anna let Stella do all the next one!

I love this Series!

This is the second book in the Norcross Security Series, an amazing Romantic Suspense. Gia and Saxon's story is fast-paced, and actions packed. Saxon is handsome, and protective. Gia is sassy and badass. They share a strong and sizzling chemistry. This is a great brother’s best friend, and enemies-to-lovers romance. Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton did a fantastic job with the narration. I love their voices together. I need more of the Norcross Family!

Good story

BOOK REVIEW.....
Good story. I liked the characters.

NARRATOR REVIEW........
I wasn't really happy with the narrating of this book. Neither narrator sounded like they were enjoying the book. The male sounded sarcastic and the female narrator sounded bored.

4.5 Exciting and Steamy Stars!

Wow, this second story in the Norcross series was a fast paced, thrilling and steamy romance. Gia Norcross has worked hard to build a business and life she loves. When a friend from the past asks Gia for help, she doesn't hesitate to help. Soon she finds herself in danger when trouble comes knocking at her door looking for what her friend stole from them. Gia isn't afraid after being raised with her alpha brothers, and knows how to defend herself from the bad guys. Even when things get dicey, she isn't happy when her brothers, and especially Saxon Buchanan, step in to help. Saxon is her brother's sexy, arrogant best friend and her crush since she was young. Saxon is ex military, special ops and now works at Norcross Security as the company’s top troubleshooter. He has been attracted to Gia for years but stayed away in repect to her brother. But now that she is in danger, he will do whatever it tkes to protect her, and make her his. I loved Gia so much! She is a force to be recomded with and that makes Saxon want her even more. Saxon is the ultimate swoony alpha. But no matter how he tried to make Gia stay safe, he could never deny her anything. This fast paced, steamy enemies-to-lovers romance was once again brought to life flawlessly by the talented Stella Bloom, and Teddy Hamilton. Hamilton had the perfect balance of Saxon's smoldering, alpha dominance, with a swoony tender side, and Bloom showed us Gia's strength and resilience so beautifully. I loved listening to them both as they drew me in, and made this story, with all it's twists and turns, even more exciting.

Another Smash Hit! Worth the credit and more!

Wow! Another smash hit for this series! I adore these two characters and this amazing story! This is completely filled with action, humor, alpha-ness and smexy times. I LOVE this family! They are all strong of self and have a wonderful family bond. I look forward to each story!

Saxon is the troubleshooter for Norcross and has always been like family to them. He is brash, bossy and Uber protective! When Gia refuses to listen to him about her protection...he has had enough! He lays it all on the line for her. I’m not sure if there is anything sexier that a male saying “Mine” to his female.

Gia is one feisty lady! She is a female character to admire. If she can do it herself then she does and will..even though a male tells her not to. She has skills and likes to use them...and I’m not talking only shopping skills.

Overall this is another story filled to the brim with witty banter, action, suspense, and opening your eyes to what is always in front of you. I loved it and enjoy listening to this on audio. The narrators are spot on for these characters. I can’t wait for more!

I have an inkling who is next and office romances are a fav of mine!

gia & saxon had me swooning

I loved this book! Action, drama, no angst and a sexy but sweet HEA? What more could I ask for? this is book 2 and we get Gia Norcrosse's story. let me tell you, this woman is bad-ass!! She doesn't need a hero but Saxon didn't get that memo! Stella Bloom narrates the hell out of this character and Teddy is sexy and broody but also gentle and loving as Saxon.
I can't wait for more of the Norcrosse Family. we also get a glimpse of characters in the Team 52 series.

Fast paced and steamy!!

Anna Hackett continues to draw me into the Norcross Security series because it contains fast-paced scenes full of action, suspense, and steamy angst filled chemistry!! Gia and Saxon are both well-accomplished, beautiful, intelligent people with a crush on each other that they are desperate to conceal. However, when Gia’s friend draws her into her own precarious situation, the truth is revealed !!

Teddy Hamilton and Stella Bloom’s performances also enhance the listener’s experience by evoking a wide range of emotions, everything from humor to anger and all things in between!! I look forward to more of this Series!!

My holiday treat!

If you want a hit romantic suspense...with a b@d@$$ heroine...then look no further! Gia Norcross is the only sister of the 3 hot and deadly Norcross brothers. She has a successful business and great family and friends...if only she didn’t have to constantly see the bane of her existence, Saxon Buchanan. He’s wealthy, sexy, and her brother’s best friend. She doesn’t have feelings for him...not one bit...well, ok, maybe a teensy crush from childhood...but he’s still annoying! When Gia is almost kidnapped, Saxon steps in and takes her protection to the next level. Saxon has always known that Gia’s soft heart towards her childhood friend, Willow, would get her into trouble...and now it has! It’s up to him...fine, and the rest of the Norcross team...to protect Gia and stop the bad guys before it’s too late. This book is fast paced, super steamy and action packed! There may be some slapping of bad guys included! Great story! Teddy Hamilton and Stella Bloom really pulled off the angsty relationship between Gia and Saxton!! Definitely a re-listen for me. Looking forward to big brother, Easton Norcross, story next!
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Gia's story!

This series is everything I love to listen to! Anna Hackett knows how to push all the right buttons for me, and I could not have had a better Christmas present!! Gia is the only sister in the Norcross family, but growing up with these alpha male brothers has given her grit! She is loyal to the end, and when it comes to her friend Willow, she will do whatever it takes to be there for her. Now Willow has brought danger to her home, and Saxon, her brother's best friend is there to protect her. Gia being off limits to Saxon has kept him away, but now he is determined to make her his. But will his feelings get in the way of keeping her safe? Does she feel the same way? Talk about witty, sarcastic banter! I love these two. They dance around each other, a little bit of a slow burn, but when it ignites, their passion is explosive. Add in the taboo of being her being Vander's sister, the story takes on a whole aspect of big brother possessiveness. Gia is feisty, and I love her! She is independent and determined to deal with things on her own. Saxon is a little over the top in the beginning, but I love his protectiveness. He knows what he wants, and does what he has to. I also love the interaction with the Norcross brothers. Each their own personality, they bring a cohesiveness to the story and make for an action packed and exciting listen. I can't wait to hear Easton's story next!

Teddy Hamilton and Stella Bloom bring this story to life. It's full of action and romance, and these two are perfect for the roles. Hamilton takes on Saxon's alpha personality and gives us all those possessive feels. Bloom brings out the spunkiness of Gia, and still lets us feel her vulnerability. These storytellers are perfectly cast and made for an enjoyable listen.

So many entertaining elements

I’m now officially a fan of the author. The books aren’t perfect, but there are so many entertaining elements and things I enjoyed!

For instance, I love her female characters. They’re sensible, nice, feminine, somewhat fragile, but faced with danger, they take matters in their own hands, no matter how scared they are. That’s the case with Gia, who doesn’t let fear paralize her. And what’s better? Their men, who are obviously of the alpha male kind–possessive, badass, strong and muscular, that’s ex-black ops for you–will opt to just follow them, even when they want to keep them safe. They relinquish power if needed. Saxon is definitely of that sort, modeling his house to please the woman he loves.

Gia and Saxon are both headstrong, so of course any confrontation results in sparks. And where there are sparks, there’s the possibility of a fire. The chemistry is off the charts, and there are many intimate scenes to prove it.

Family is another element of this book–the one you’re born into, and the one you choose. Gia’s devotion to her friend Willow, and the way Saxon was kind of adopted into the Norcross family are well developped and beautiful, while Saxon’s parents show that blood is sometimes thinner than love.

The narrators of the previous book are back, and since the characters are forged in the same furnace, they’re still perfect for the job.

In the same manner that this book follows exactly the previous one–starting where the other ended–, there’s a hint about the next book in the series, and I can’t wait.

Absolutely fantastic

I love this series. The characters are brilliant. I love how the women are strong and independent but also open to help from these big buff Alpha’s. A fantastic performance from both Stella and Teddy. Excellent action and it flows nicely into the next book. Looking forward to it.
