Adult Book
(Amy's Review)
4 out of 5 Stars


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.
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 hand’s 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 is my second non-paranormal read and I have to say I have been blessed to find such great stories.   This one is about Royce and Lauren.  Royce runs a security company and Lauren is an Assistant DA.  Lauren just got a high profile case which includes putting a battered woman up for the death penalty.  Lauren has been getting anonymous threats, so her father has requested the help of Royce to protect her.  Lauren has no idea that her father, who happens to be a US Senator, has been getting threats as well and that he has asked Royce to look out for her.  When Lauren meets Royce at her father’s birthday party, sparks fly.  Royce must work with his brothers to find out who is threatening Lauren, and keep Lauren from finding out that he was hired by her father.   Ok, so what’s not to like about this story?  Nothing.  It has all the elements that keep readers intrigued.  Action, romance, suspense, mystery and that surprise right at the very end.  Lisa has a way of writing that makes you want to jump into the story and actually become a part of it.  I am eager to continue with the series with book 2, “Dangerous Secrets”.
