Leslie North takes us from the Jawhara Sheik Series with a captivating spin off with Slade Security Team. In Book one, His Stubborn Lover, we get another look at Sheik Kamal Mehalel El-Jawhara and his fiancée Erin Malone. With the threats against Erin, and their unborn child an added risk, Sheik Kamal calls in reinforcements in the form of Slade Security Team members.
Brock Wells is the best operative at Slade Security Team outside of Slade himself. He never mixes business with personal which is one of the reasons he is so good. Known for having a heart of ice, women don’t expect much from him. This was true until he met Keira Mantz and now he is having trouble concentrating on the job.
Keira Mantz knows if it wasn’t for Brock she probably wouldn’t be alive today. Nights full of erotic dreams of Brock are her only personal connection to him, because her days require her to keep her distance. When Slade gives her a chance to be in charge of her own op with the security for Erin Malone, she is surprised to see Brock waiting for her when she arrives. Hearing that the plans have changed and now she must act as his lover, Keira fights herself in discovering how much she wants the role to be true.
Brock and Keira fight their attraction because of duty and their personal baggage. When Slade offers Brock a chance to remain in Jawhara creating a new division of the company, Brock has to make a choice regarding Keira. Can he live without her? Keira will have her own choice to make regarding this new information. Will she choose Brock?
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have always enjoyed a book by Leslie North and this one is no exception. In reading the teaser for book 2, His Secret, I am already waiting eagerly to read what happens to Slade and learn what Tayra’s secret is.
