Iris Tarango is a small-town girl from the wrong side of the tracks; she’s also a decorated former Marine who fought hard to become one of Red Stone Security’s most respected agents. But her perfectly ordered life is turned upside down when she’s assigned to guard the sexy, dominating tycoon she shares a secret history with. The instant Iris walks back into the billionaire’s diamond-studded orbit, the wild attraction flares between them…and her reputation, objectivity, and heart are in trouble.

After an attempt on his life, business magnate Wyatt Christiansen calls in major favors to hire Iris as his bodyguard. He knows she’s the best, though he has another motive too. He sees this as his final chance to win her heart. But when danger spins out of control, all Wyatt can think of is getting Iris out of harm’s way—even if it means losing her love in the end.

Unfortunately, the killer seems to know their every move. If Wyatt and Iris don’t figure out who put out the hit, they’ll lose more than their chance at happiness together.

Linda's Thoughts:
"Wyatt Christiansen is the client."
Iris tensed at his words. Hearing Wyatt's name from her boss completely threw her off balance. If Wyatt wanted to hire Red Stone that meant he needed extra security. She hated the thought of him in danger.
Without giving her a chance to respond, Harrison barreled on. "I don't like the idea of you guarding him, especially since I found out you two are fucking married. It goes against protocol, father owes him a favor and he's apparently collecting."

BREAKING HER RULES by Katie Reus is a fast-paced, high stakes romantic thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It's the sixth installment in Katie's fabulous Red Stone Security series and, as with all the books in this series, it works very well as a standalone, if that is your preference, even though there are interconnected characters. However, I have a feeling that once you read one of Katie's books, you will want to read the rest! Yes, they are that good!

I didn't know what to expect with this one as most of the books I've read in this genre have the male as the protector. BREAKING HER RULES is the story of two alphas: mega-successful business man Wyatt Christiansen and Red Stone Security agent Iris Tarango. Iris is the primary protector herein. Let me tell you, Iris knows her stuff!

Iris and Wyatt have history. They had been long-time friends, but short-term lovers. After one lusty week in Las Vegas, they had married on a whim. Then, due to a misunderstanding, Iris took off without even saying goodbye. Wyatt, though, wasn't giving up on them, and he's followed her to Miami. AND he'll do whatever it takes to get her back. I really liked this couple. They were each strong, independent individuals, but they meshed well together.

Iris is very good at what she does for Red Stone. She's worked hard to be the best and has earned her place as the head of her security team. She's ex-military, tough and smart, a kick-ass, lethal combination to anyone who goes up against her. But... relationships are out of her comfort zone.

Wyatt wants Iris back where he believes she belongs - with him. He's a dominant, yummy, sexy male, strapping and capable on his own. Now his life is being threatened and he's finagled - calling in a favor - to have Iris put in charge of his personal security. Beware! The danger level is high and their chemistry is hot!

Following please find a few of my favorite quotes:

Iris arched her back, pushing her breast farther into Wyatt's hungry mouth. Water from the giant marble-tiled hotel shower rushed down over them, the sound of it hitting the glass door seeming loud in the enclosure. He lightly pressed down with his teeth and tugged her nipple, sending a pulsing sweep of need through her. The man was too talented with his tongue.

He shrugged those broad shoulders, drawing her gaze to them. She couldn't help but undress him with her eyes, remembering every hot inch of his naked body. Unfortunately he knew what she was doing.
"All you have to do is ask and I'll take my clothes off."

"If you're courting me, you have to tell me something about yourself that no one else knows."
He was silent for a moment. "I'd rather jerk-off to thoughts of you than be with anyone else."

With a solid plot, good pacing, fast-paced action and riveting suspense, BREAKING HER RULES is a winner! I highly recommend this novella to anyone who enjoys passionate, high-octane, action-riddled romantic suspense!


  1. I have heard of this author, but haven't tried her out, but dang woman!! You are such a temptress, your review makes this one sound so good. I do love it when you have two alpha like characters, their interactions are so more intense and engaging. And I love your new post badges, simple and classy!!

  2. This sounds intriguing. Two alphas and a kick ass female!
