When the cards are stacked against you, the Kings will even the odds.
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?
Love in Spades introduced readers to Four Kings Security, a security company that specializes in everything from armed transport and investigations, to cyber intelligence, and executive protection. Owned by men who served together in Special Forces until they lost half their unit, the “Four Kings” are Ward “King” Kingston, Eduardo “Lucky” Morales, Anston “Ace” Sharpe, and Russell “Red” McKinley.
When professional photographer Laz finds himself needing Four Kings protection after someone tries to kill him during a photo shoot, it’s Red, once again, who makes sure nothing bad happens to him. The chemistry between Red and Laz that began in Love in Spades becomes even more palpable, and HOT, in Be Still My Heart! Laz and Red are perfect for one another, but they both have some baggage; Red’s PTSD and Laz’s trust issues definitely come into play.
Be Still My Heart is told in a dual POV, has a great banter, plenty of action, steam, and suspense all wonderfully narrated by Greg Tremblay, under his sexier Boudreaux brand, to keep you entertained for hours.
This is a really fun series to listen to with Greg giving a great performance with an easy pace, interesting characters voices that are easy to recognize, great accents…it’s a treat to listen to!
Be Still My Heart is low angst, sexy, with some action and suspense, has a happy ending, and has terrific narration.
I’m really looking forward to Lucky and Mason’s story coming soon to audio.
