Former Special Forces medical sergeant Russell “Red” McKinley knows a thing or two about wounds, like the fact some can take a lifetime to heal, if they heal at all. The scars Red carries run deep, and living with PTSD often means battling the memories of his past. Injuries he received while working an executive protection case with fellow Kings and co-owners of Four Kings Security, have once again forced past heartaches to the surface, but Red is determined not to let it derail his blossoming romance with sweet and sexy fashion photographer Lazarus Galanos.

Laz can’t deny there’s something special developing between him and Red, but Laz has wounds of his own. He’s hesitant to jump into a new relationship after his recent explosive breakup. Experience has taught Laz to doubt his judgement when it comes to men. Guys who seem too good to be true, usually are, and no one appears more perfect than Red.
When an attempt is made on Laz’s life, Red is determined to keep him safe. Laz may not be a client, and Red is still off duty, but Laz is one of their own, and nothing means more to the Kings than family. While an investigation is underway, Red and Laz are growing closer, but can they find a way to help each other heal and take a chance on love, or will their fears and insecurities cost them more than their future together?

Be Still My Heart is the next book in the Four Kings Security Series. This is about Laz and Red and how they get their happily ever after amidst all the danger, suspense and action.

I love Charlie Cochet’s books. She is having a way of blending all the suspense, danger and intrigue with the romance that you will feel satisfied once you finish reading the story. It’s akin to watching a well directed action film. She has managed to do that in this book too. There is action, suspense, romance, drama and a bunch of characters who will take a permanent place in your heart. The book is about Laz and Red and how they find their happily ever after. The author has done a tremendous job in character development and the way they came together felt natural and it was very well portrayed. They had their own issues to overcome and their issues and the way they overcame them were portrayed in a realistic and heartfelt way. I loved Laz and Red and how perfect they were for each other.

Be Still My Heart is a perfect addition to the series and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series about these sexy men. Recommended.
