Publisher’s Description:

Cloaked in the identity of David Xavier, a billionaire player in multiple world theaters, Mike White Cloud worked to enter the Russian Mafia’s lair, by stalking a shadowy creature named “The Concierge.” The Russian woman brokered young innocents into slavery, and Mike meant to destroy her and the organization she worked for. He should have despised her for the atrocious crimes she facilitated, but too often love and hate are the flip sides of the same coin, and what Mike felt for Taty was not hate. It didn’t matter. He’d destroy the Bravata and all its associates–even if it meant part of his soul sat in prison for the rest of her life.

Driven by heartbreak, Tatyana Petrov joined the elite British M16 unit, and for eight years, wormed her way into the trust of the Bravata as she strove to identify the human filth selling those innocents to billionaires like David Xavier. She’d found it easy to loathe the wealthy men who bought her “toys”–until David. For reasons that she wouldn’t acknowledge, she wanted to protect this one man from the retribution rapidly approaching.

Neither knew the other’s true mission but even as mortal adversaries, they’d each given the other a part of their soul, and now only devastation and sorrow waited.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words…spoilers.  *BEWARE*


 

Nervous Nellie says..

This is a military alpha romance bordering on erotica romance with violence, kidnapping and sex slave trade flavor.  Both hero and heroine are good guys trying to stop the slave trade, so no worries there.  The book could be read as a stand alone if push come to shove, but it’s so much better with all the other books leading up to this point.  There isn’t a cliffhanger per se…but the ending did give me a hook to tune in to the next in the series.

I love Kris Michael’s work.  The whole series up to this point is fantastic.  I enjoy romances that involve a whole family like this one.  I also like the reaccuring characters so it feels like I’m in the middle of all the action.

This book wasn’t as good as some of the others, however, it was still very good.  I know everyone has their favorites and I tend to compare all the books in the series to the one I enjoyed the most.  With that being said, Chief was a good story.  The reason it doesn’t live up to my fave is probably the lack of emotion during the story I felt.  Maybe it was the story arc of sex slave trade or Tatyana herself, I don’t know.  That’s not to say I didn’t need tissues at the end, because I did.  I know it’s hard to put a whole year of preparation for a secret op into the book, but I felt the backstory was a little light.  That’s just my opinion, though.

Throughout the book, there was peeks into Tatyana and her life before, so that was good.  I have to be sure that the woman was good enough for Chief (not that I could do anything about it, of course).  I mentioned that I needed tissues at the end.  It wasn’t sad, so don’t freak out.  Sometimes the ends of these books tend to spark an emotional release from the real world’s events – that’s one reason why I read them.

I really did like this book and I can’t wait for the next one.  I know I’ll be sad when all the family is hooked up and the series ends, but Kris Michaels is one of those writers that I know has several good stories percolating in her brain, so it’ll be ok.

Synopsis 

Cloaked in the identity of David Xavier, a billionaire player in multiple world
theaters, Mike White Cloud worked to enter the Russian Mafia’s lair, by
stalking a shadowy creature named “The Concierge.” The Russian woman
brokered young innocents into slavery and Mike meant to destroy her and
the organization she worked for. He should have despised her for the
atrocious crimes she facilitated, but too often love and hate are the flip
sides of the same coin, and what Mike felt for Taty was not hate. It didn’t
matter. He’d destroy the Bravata and all its associates—even if it meant
part of his soul sat in prison for the rest of her life.

Driven by heartbreak, Tatyana Petrov joined the elite British M16 unit, and
for eight years, wormed her way into the trust of the Bravata as she
strove to identify the human filth selling those innocents to billionaires like
David Xavier. She’d found it easy to loathe the wealthy men who bought
her “toys”—until David. For reasons that she wouldn’t acknowledge, she
wanted to protect this one man from the retribution rapidly approaching.
Neither knew the other’s true mission but even as mortal adversaries,
they’d each given the other a part of their soul and now only devastation
and sorrow waited.

Jasmine by Kris Michaels

Join the romances at Guardian Security as Jasmine finds the love of her life.  Number 6 in the series – don’t miss it!

Author: Kris Michaels
Series: Kings of Guardian #6
Publish Date: January 27, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Source:  Purchased ebook from Amazon.com

Publisher’s Description: Jasmine King loved her chosen profession until she was assigned as Chad Nelson’s personal security officer.

The sex-fueled country superstar was either a stone cold killer or the target of a deranged psychopath. Regardless, the self-absorbed bad boy was now hers to protect, and she’d be damned if she’d fail—despite the singer’s best efforts to make things difficult.

One minute Chad Nelson was the reigning king of country music and in the next, an FBI murder suspect in not one, but two murders. As if that’s not bad enough, he’s in the cross-hairs of someone who wants him dead. He’s got a front row seat to the destruction of his wildly successful and carefully constructed life.

Jasmine and Chad are plunged into a deadly situation when the race to get him to safety reveals pursuit by not only Chad’s enemies but worse, Guardian’s. Now, positions are reversed as the country star reaches back to a military past to help free Jasmine from a bloody confrontation. Thankfully, Chad’s not the shallow performer Jasmine originally suspected, and she’ll use any advantage to protect her man as Guardian scrambles to find the killer.

Another stellar story from the world Guardian Security. I haven’t seen much of Jasmine in any of the previous books, so to read her story was a treat. Jasmine is tough and don’t forget it. She can hold her own against anyone but that goes against every chivalrous bone in Chad’s body. He’s a down home country boy that was taught to respect his elders and open doors for ladies.

Jasmine and Chad fell together fairly quickly, but there is a lot of stressful situations that presented themselves so they had to bond fast. The mystery whodunnit was fairly easy to figure out, but that’s not the point of the book. The point is to join the King family and welcome another member to their ever extending family.

badge5v5Jared makes the most appearances since he’s head of the domestic side of Guardian security, but Drake, Dixon, Doc, Amanda, Frank, Joseph, Ember, Jason and some extent Reece and Faith all made it out to the ranch to meet the singer that their sister hooked her star to.

I love this King family. It’s hard to pick a favorite because they all have their own unique situations. I’ll be interested to see more of the family in the next book. I’ll even be more interested to see WHO is in the next book!
