Ex-Special Forces soldier Anston “Ace” Sharpe is fighting a different battle these days—one involving the world of private security across the state of Florida. As part owner of Four Kings Security, Ace and his fellow Kings tackle everything from armed transport and investigations to cyber intelligence and executive protection. Cocky, fearless, and brash, Ace isn’t afraid to take risks.

After years of working alongside his father, Colton Connolly is ready to take the helm at Connolly Maritime, but his father’s retirement is put on hold when Colton begins receiving death threats. If that isn’t bad enough, his father signs a contract with Four Kings Security to provide Colton with round-the-clock protection, despite his adamant refusal. Colton’s life has been turned upside down, the last thing he needs is a shadow, especially in the form of infuriating, sexy-as-sin Ace Sharpe, who seems to be on a mission to drive Colton mad.

Sparks fly the moment Colton and Ace meet on a sultry night club dance floor. But getting involved with a client, even one as fiery and beautiful as Colton Connolly, is a line Ace is unwilling to cross. Colton might be attracted to Ace, but he’d been burned before. He might be willing to put his life in Ace’s hands, but not his heart.

As the Florida nights heat up, so does their passion, and Ace and Colton are faced with a difficult choice—take the plunge and risk it all, or play it safe and walk away?

If Ace can keep a deadly threat from robbing Colton of a future…

Oh MY!!!! I have found a new series by Charlie Cochet that I will be waiting on pins and needles for the next book to come out. Four King’s Security is a truly incredible series so far. While reading I was on the edge of my seat. Not only for the danger that we knew was to come but because of the attraction between Colton and Ace. And the amazing chemistry that they are both trying to not act upon.

Ace is a co-owner in Four King’s security. They are an elite group of former military that offer personal security for those that decide to hire them. When Four King’s is called in by Connolly Maritime to protect the CEO’s son Colton. Colton has been receiving death threats and even gifts that show just how serious the situation is. The only problem is Colton is not happy about having his life interrupted by the security detail.

Not only that but Colton cannot stop thinking about the one that is in charge, Ace. These two men both have to figure out how to trust the other and work together to keep Colton safe. That is not easy since Colton is doing whatever necessary to make things not only hard on Ace but interesting between them as well.

The more these two get to know one another the more their attraction grows for the other. Both men is trying to do the right thing and not mix business with pleasure but with each passing day that is getting more difficult to do, until it just becomes impossible. Once both men has given in to the attraction now they just need to keep it between them until this case is solved and Ace is no longer Colton’s security detail.

Can these two figure out a way to make that work for them without either getting hurt in the process? Or will everything come to head when they least expect it?

This was such an incredible read. I love this series so far and cannot wait to read Red’s story. If it is even half as good as this book, then it will be another amazing read. Charlie Cochet is such an incredible author that makes each book so much better than the last. Can’t wait for the next book.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
