Eduardo “Lucky” Morales is a fighter, from his childhood days in Cuba to his time as a Special Forces Green Beret. Scarred by the wars of his past, Lucky has learned nothing lasts forever. Guarding his heart is second nature, and getting emotionally involved is not an option. As co-owner of Four Kings Security, Lucky works hard alongside his former brothers-in-arms and fellow Kings, but he also plays hard. Flirting with sexy Texas cowboy and detective, Mason Cooper, is too much fun to resist, until Mason turns the tables on him.
Mason Cooper may not be a soldier, but he’s fought his share of battles as an openly gay cop and now a detective for Major Crimes. Mason has no idea when things changed between him and Lucky, but the gorgeous, fiery Cuban has turned his world upside down. When a mistake leads to his suspension from the force, Mason turns to the least likely person for help: Ward Kingston.
Determined to keep Mason at arms’ length, Lucky is surprised to find the man at Four Kings Security. The Florida nights might be getting cooler, but the heat between Lucky and Mason burns hotter with every passing moment. Working private security can be dangerous and unpredictable, but so can falling in love.
Wow, Charlie Cochet just keeps writing better and better books with each new book that comes out. She always seems to amaze me how she can write a new series and make it just as good as “Thirds” series, which by the way is my absolute favorite series of all times. Once I started the Four King’s Security series I only hoped I would enjoy it but as it turns out, I love it. Each book in this series leaves me wanting the next book to hurry up and come out. And I have to say that I am REALLY looking forward to book four since it is about King himself.
This book is Lucky’s book. Lucky is the one everyone assumes will never settle down and will always be a hit it and quit it type of person. No one begrudges him for his choices and regardless of his playboy lifestyle everyone loves Lucky. But what no one realizes or at least what Lucky thinks no one realizes is Lucky has a crush on Mason.
Mason feels the same about Lucky but after a heated argument and some poor choices on Mason’s part, it may never come of anything between them. Both men try to avoid the other but after an investigation by IA at work, Mason is placed on a leave of absence until things are cleared up. Mason knows he will not be able to handle not working so he goes to King about working for them.
King decides to hire Mason on a contract, temporary basis but the stipulation is Lucky and Mason have to work together and they have to figure their crap between them out. Could this be just what these two men need? Or is it the push that will send them both over the edge? Once past mistakes are revealed, can these two men work together to overcome it or will it tear them apart even more?
This was such a great read. Like I said, I cannot wait for the next book to come out. Charlie Cochet just cannot write a bad book, which is a good thing. I truly look forward to whatever Charlie has coming out next!!!
