Emerly Greer has been living a low-key life, content with her multiple jobs and her books. People are complicated; animals and kids are much easier to understand.
As owner of Talon Security, Travis McAllister has seen success beyond what he ever expected—causing the boundaries he's set around himself to grow ever thicker.
When their worlds collide, Emerly and Travis will discover what life really means—if they can let each other in to live it.
After Emerly is targeted following a robbery gone wrong, Travis and his team drop everything to protect her. Emerly is the first woman Travis wants to let his guard down for, that he wants to let in, and he'll be damned if he loses her now.
Book Two of the Talon Security series, can be read as a stand alone.
* Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Yet another quick, sweet, and sexy Megan O’Brien comfort read to add to my list! I was a bit worried about transitioning from the biker heroes of her Ride series to the hot, driven, military men of her Talon Security Series, but I have to say, things have been smooth so far. Both of the books are what I would consider relationship driven with just enough action and suspense to keep me from getting bored although I would have liked there to have been more.
Travis is the actual owner of Talon Security and is Sam’s brother (from book one). He’s a workaholic who’s a bit closed off from everyone and only shows his softer side when his nephew, Hudson, is around.
Emerly is Hudson’s preschool teacher and also happens to be Sam’s yoga instructor. She’s a bit quirky but is also closed off in her own way too. When she isn’t working she’s got her nose buried in a book.
I very much liked both Emerly and Travis, especially when they were together. Travis did have a couple moments where I wanted to shake him for his actions, but Emerly certainly didn’t let him get away with anything, which I loved. I really liked how they pulled each other out of their respective cocoons. The fact they had great chemistry was the icing on the cake.
The suspense aspect, although interesting, didn’t quite live up to its potential. I think there were definitely some missed opportunities that would have catapulted this to the next level if they had been taken advantage of. The ending especially felt a bit rushed which was a disappointment.
Even with the rushed ending, I ended up liking the book. Quirky heroines are a favorite of mine and Emerly fit the bill perfectly. Add in all the broody alpha yumminess of Travis and this is a couple I enjoyed spending time with.
