My best friend is happily coupled up with the girl of his dreams and all he asked me to do is help keep her safe. Her and her friend.
I can do that. I’m a bodyguard. Protection is what we do.
But how the hell do you protect someone like JJ? Loud, argumentative and more sass than sense. I learned a long time ago that protection and romance don’t mix but JJ is a crack in my armor. An argumentative, beautiful crack in my armor.
And to protect her I might have to break the vow I made years ago.
Book 1 of The Force Duet.

JJ and Jonas
I was so excited for this union so I was super excited when Force was released... and it did not disappoint! The scenes are steamy but I need to know how it ends. Can't wait for the next release. I need to know what's going on with Matthias!!!
A Sexy and Compelling a Read!!!
What a great start to a new series featuring some old favorites! With an interesting plot, impressive writing, and colorful and passionate characters, you just couldn’t ask for more from a romantic suspense book. These characters that we’ve come to love from the last series simply explode off the page. They completely draw you into the story and you just can’t help but become obsessed with their lives and relationships. The chemistry between Jonas and JJ is beyond amazing! Watching their relationship grow from catty remarks and longing glances into a true love affair is simply a joy. These two are never boring. They are cantankerous and they push each other’s buttons and both can be a handful at times, but always the love shines through. This book is impassioned and exciting, romantic and witty, provocative and intriguing, and absolutely riveting. I, quite literally, could not put it down. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a sexy and compelling read.

Review Wow!! I absolutely loved Force. With Force, M. Malone and Nana Malone have given us readers a well-crafted, emotionally-charged, and suspenseful story that will make you laugh, cry, pray for the good guys to win, and want to kick some butt. I could not put this one down from the moment I opened the book. What a great story. What a roller-coaster of a ride Force is--one that you will not want to get off. One of the best parts about Force is that it picks up pretty much where the Shameless trilogy left off, so you don't feel as though you have missed anything in between the books in this interconnected series. So, if you haven't read the Shameless series I highly recommend it before you start reading Force, because it will give you a better understanding of the characters and how they relate to each other.
Force focuses on Jessica Jones aka JJ, Lucia's best friend, and Jonas Costillo, Noah's best friend and one of the members of the Blake Security team, both of whom we met in the Shameless trilogy, which focused on Lucia and Noah's story. JJ is a beautiful, free-spirited, trouble-making, independent force to be reckoned with of a woman, who happens to be hiding a very big secret. Jonas is the sexy, strong, protective alpha who will go above and beyond the call of duty to protect a woman, but who also happens to be carrying around tremendous hurt and a need to save women, because of a long ago presumed failure on his behalf. JJ and Jonas are perfect together...they are each other's nemesis...or they would have you to believe they are. Their banter alone keeps the book moving and you, as the reader, holding your side in stitches. However, as JJ's past begins to catch up with her, she turns to Jonas for help, and Jonas will leave no stone unturned to protect her, but he needs her to completely trust him, by completely opening up to him. Yet, JJ may not be sure she can do that, because she is ashamed of her past and the secret it entails.
As alluded to above, since Force is a part of a duet in the Shameless world, that means the entire cast from the Shameless series is back, and, boy oh boy, are these guys and girls awesome. Just thinking about them puts a smile on your face. And my goodness, the ending to Force!! HAVE MERCY!! I need the second book ASAP!!!
