He’s the security she’s always needed.
Since she moved to Miami, Raegan Taylor has desired Ford Burke–a sexy and rugged cop. He’s everything she’s ever wanted. Unfortunately for Raegan, Ford’s kept his distance. But when a night out goes extremely wrong, his protective instincts kick into high gear, and he finds himself fighting for her in more ways than one.
She’s exactly what he was trying to avoid.
Once Raegan and Ford grow closer, the harder they start to fall for each other. But Ford’s past stirs up feelings he just can’t control, threatening to destroy everything they’ve worked for. And when he screws up, he may lose more than just his one shot with her.
And now someone’s ready to ruin it all.
Someone wants Raegan—and if he can’t have her—nobody can. He’s waiting. He’s watching. He’s lurking. Ready to strike. He’ll make her his. He’ll take down anyone who gets in his way—even a cop.
She's exactly what he was trying to avoid. Now that he’s had a taste, he’s not letting her go. Unfortunately someone wants to ruin what they have in… SECRET OBSESSION.
SECRET OBSESSION by Katie Reus is a sexy romantic suspense read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This book is actually a two-for-one as two couples' stories are told in this tale. The primary tale features Raegan Taylor, who has recently moved to Miami to work at Red Stone Security, and Ford Burke, a sexy cop. Raegan is the younger cousin of Harrison, Grant and Porter Caldwell and the Caldwells are very protective of her. But, Raegan is determined not to let her cousins control her life and she's equally determined to make Ford notice her! Little does she realize Ford is just as attracted to her, but he won't admit to his feelings for multiple reasons. However, a predator has Raegan in his sights, and he's determined that no one - not the hot cop she's dating nor her cousins at Red Stone Security - will thwart his sadistic plans for her.
I had so many favorite scenes in this book but just have to mention one: Wait until you read about how these tough Red Stone Security guys are now happily attending bridal fittings. I couldn't help but laugh at the thought!
The secondary story features Ruby and Montez. It's short, but intense - an extra, delightfully satisfying treat!
Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from this read:
She ran her fingers along his bare shoulders. He should never, ever wear shirts. "I need to kiss you again."
"Yeah. I'll put the pizza in, if you want to pick a movie."
"Oh, I think I get to pick the next five movies." Her grin was just a little wicked as she said it.
He couldn't help but grin back. "Is that right?"
"YHep. Call it part of your apology."...
"I can think of some other ways to make it up to you." He dropped his voice, the intent in his words clear...
Her cheeks tinged pink. "If these ways involve you naked with your head between my legs, I'll allow it."
It didn't matter that she was one of his best friend's cousins, or that she was a decade younger than him, or that he knew he'd likely get burned by her. He wanted to taste her again and this time he wasn't going to stop at kissing. Not unless she told him to.
Even though SECRET OBSESSION is the twelfth book in the author's fantastic Red Stone Security series, this book and all the books in this series, can be fully enjoyed as standalones without an issue, if that is your preference. There are interconnected characters, but Katie seamlessly fills in whatever you need to know as the story progresses.
I can't wait to read LOVE THY ENEMY coming June 7, 2016 which will be Dominque's and Viktor's story! Oh my! She has vehemently loathed Viktor, an infuriatingly sexy Russian, for years. Viktor is going to have to perform some miracles to break through Dominque's icy exterior.
I'm a huge fan of Katie's books and this book is not an exception. With non-stop action, a solid plot, good pacing and riveting suspense, I couldn't put it down until I'd finished it. I highly recommend any and all of Katie Reus' books to anyone who loves to read truly exceptional romantic suspense!
