Years ago, they were in love. She was an up-and-coming superstar and he was the devilishly handsome security professional hired to keep her safe. They fell hard and fast, no matter how they tried to resist one another. But not everyone around them was happy about their relationship, and a string of lies and deceit destroyed what they once had.
Having just taken the helm of a nationally renowned protective services company, Kynan McGrath is looking to rebrand and revamp his career. The newly crowned Jameson Force Security is moving from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the mountainous steel town of Pittsburgh, and the last thing Kynan has time for is to deal with his past.
More than a decade has passed since their split, but even a bruised and battered heart remembers its first love. So when Joslyn Meyers comes to him for help, Kynan reluctantly agrees to keep her safe from a terrifying stalker who keeps threatening her life.
As the danger they face continues to intensify, Kynan realizes he’ll stop at nothing to protect the woman who turned her back on him all those years ago. Because one thing is certain—no matter how hard he tries to convince himself otherwise, Joslyn still has his heart.

Kynan’s Story At Last!
I have been waiting for Kynan's story since first meeting him in the Wicked Horse Vegas series. He's always been a mystery, so I was eager to understand this sexy Brit. This series is a spin off of the Wicked Horse Vegas series, but you don't need to read it or the crossover prequel novella Wicked Force to enjoy this book.
I am a huge fan of second chance romances, and Kynan and Joslyn's story of young love gone wrong was right up my alley. The suspenseful elements kept the story moving and I loved getting to meet this new cast of characters. Kynan is 100% alpha male and though I wanted to throat punch him a time or two in the beginning, once he opens his heart again, he goes all in. I liked that Joslyn was a fighter and didn't just act like a damsel in distress the entire book. She certainly makes some mistakes, but she really shows her strength in the end. As much as I loved Kynan and Joslyn together, it took me a bit to really believe that their limited time together 12 years ago could stand the test of time. They certainly have chemistry though and once they reconnect, the sparks really fly!
This was a great start to the series and I enjoyed the action as well as the romance. I'm excited to meet the rest of Jameson Force Security!

Possible spoilers toward the end.
I was so excited to get more romantic suspense from Sawyer Bennett and this book was not a disappointment. I alternately wanted to punch and hug Kynan, but I loved the way it all came together. What I love romance novels and a good alpha protector. What I loved most about this book was the message: You can do it by yourself. When Joslyn had her dream, I almost lost it. I truly believe we’re all looking for that person who is going to support and enable us to achieve anything we pursue.
Love second time around
Code Name: Genesis is a romantic suspense story. Kynan and Joslyn both met when she was a 19 year old up and coming star and he was on her security detail. They fell in love but parted on bad terms. Twelve years, Kynan is hired again for her protection, they pick up where they left off. The story is fast moving and steamy. This second chance has a very satisfying conclusion. This book is the first in the new Jameson Force Security and can be read as a stand-alone.
