The last one falls. It’s amazing to find love even when it’s been under your nose for years. Why or how do these things happen? Who knows? But it’s fantastic when it does. No one expects what Justin King does as a side line. No one in his family save one brother knows he really works for Guardian. He doesn’t need his family…until he does.

Publisher’s Description: Being CEO of flourishing JK Holdings isn’t a sufficient challenge for millionaire restaurateur Justin King. He craves the rush gained by facing danger and triumphing—be it heli-skiing, rappelling, suit jumping from the peaks of Mt. Everest or racing performance cars. But nothing does it for him like breaking into impenetrable fortresses and rifling their vaults for Guardian Security. It’s the best-kept secret of his very public life.
Danielle Grant has built a life separate from the power and influence of her father, the owner of Phoenix Armament. As Acquisitions Manager of JK Holdings, she’s made herself indispensable to Justin King on a professional level, his steady constant as she watches the gorgeous women in his private life come and go. Never once did she allow herself to dream the romantic attentions of her boss would turn her way—until fate perched them side-by-side at the precipice of a deadly drop.
Just as Justin and Dani realize what they could be to each other, a malevolent force rips them apart, and Dani vanishes without a trace. Finding her and getting her back will require Justin do the one thing he has avoided all his life—ask for the help of his family.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In some cases…spoilers. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
Lord above, did you fire your brains out of that damn rocket launcher?
I’m not crazy! Guardian has be tested! Once a year!
Oh, my gosh. I just love Jade. Only she could come up with comments like that.
This book is a well written accounting of the elusive Justin King. His story isn’t graphic in horror or sex, but there is death and sex in the book. There is not a cliffhanger and there is a happy ending. All of this series could be read as stand alones, but it would be so much better to read them in order so you get to know the family and the other characters that are involved in Guardian Security.
Earlier, I stated that Justin King is elusive. It’s a different kind of elusive than Joseph King. Justin is very private and most of his siblings think he’s just a playboy restaurateur that doesn’t really know what Guardian is about. Boy, are they in for a surprise. That’s ok, though, because Justin needs as much credit of saving lives as the rest of the team. What he does is keenly different, but no less useful.
All the Kings (except for Mom Amanda) were in this episode which was an incredible treat for those of us that practically worship the ground the Kings walk on. Most of this book was somber because that’s who Justin is. He’s a meticulous businessman that has brilliantly built his world with his own two hands with no help from anyone. He’s held his family at bay because that’s how he does things. He’s not a jokester like Jacob. He’s not damaged like Joseph. He’s not the same kind of crazy as Jade, though he has his own brand.
I enjoyed meeting and getting to know Justin. He was always in the shadows as the brother who knows nothing about what his sibs do for the world and here we are finding out that he has more effect on the world than haute cuisine and fine wine.
One last thing, while it makes me sad that this is the last official King sibling to get matched up, that does not mean it’s the last of the King family. We have Drake and Dixon left to go and from the little teaser at the end of the book, I believe that one of them has their story next.
