⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Brick is a man who has no commitments other than his job and his brotherhood. He was broken on his last mission before leaving the Navy SEALs and nothing can fix him. When he has been given a job where he has to pretend to be married to get the truth from an alleged murderer, he is convinced that he can keep his hands, and other body parts, to himself. He has no desire to be in a relationship and he knows that Londyn is strictly hands off because he has been warned to stay away by his Shadow brother Mercy. Little does he know that his promise before leaving for this job will be harder to keep than he thought.
Londyn has been hurt and let down again. Her future brother in-law does not want her at his house and her sister doesn’t show any signs of wanting her in the house either. She wants her close to home, but not in her home. When the opportunity comes up to work with Brick on the job to get information, she thinks it will give her something to do and will give her purpose. She made a promise to her sister that she would stay away from Brick in any romantic/sexual way because she has sworn off men. Little does she know that her promise will be much harder than she thought it would be as well.
These two are attracted to each other right away, but they fight it for a little bit. I loved these two. Brick is an easygoing guy who just wants to play when he’s not working, but Londyn is a challenge that he is not ready for. Londyn is a naturally inquisitive woman who is more than delighted to get answers from their neighbors to help Brick with his job. They both work to get under the others skin in the beginning and their back and forth is quite comical. I love the heat and passion that is sparking between them. I will never look at brownie batter the same ever again after reading this book either. This book had me laughing at these two, cringing at times, and crying at times, but through the entire story I hated to put the book down. I loved it and give it a 5-star review. I hate to see this series end, but I am so happy that I was able to read it. The men of In The Shadows Security are a great team and the women they each found are perfect for them and they are just as tough and dangerous as their men.
