A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, a P.I.—the men of Brodie Operations Security Service, Inc. are down for the job…
Sinners, whores, and sluts beware—your time is at hand: a faceless menace is threatening lingerie models on a cross country tour, and Ethan Brodie is there to defend and protect.
Ethan’s learned the hard way that beauty is no substitute for character. So even though Valentine Hart is one of the most breathtaking women he’s ever seen, he’s keeping his hands off and his eyes open. Or that’s what he tells himself.
Then one of the models is murdered, and the closer Ethan gets to the answers, the closer he finds himself to Valentine—and the hotter the pressure feels. There’s more to Val—more to the other girls—than he could have guessed. But one is keeping a secret that could kill them all.
Martin (Against the Tide) introduces the members of Seattle's Brodie Operations Security Services (BOSS) in a choppily told romantic thriller about the fierce protectiveness that the strong, handsome heroes feel toward beautiful, complicated women. After the high-class models of LaBelle Lingerie receive threatening notes that escalate to an actual murder, Ethan Brodie takes on the 24/7 protection of model Valentine Hart. The two quickly ignore BOSS's no-fraternization rule under the pressures of close proximity and strong attraction. Martin draws her characters with little moral ambiguity. Her reliable men of action put themselves out to take care of their families while saving their women from villains and sleazeballs; the women worry about the dangerous nature of BOSS's work, but fidelity is never in doubt. Plot shifts and revelations are unsatisfyingly abrupt for those whose focus is on the mystery side of the story, and the lack of repercussions for breaking the company's rules leaves the reader with a sense that the story has been streamlined at the expense of reality.

A Great Read
I had the pleasure of reading Into the Fury by Kat Martin. In this book Ethan Brodie works for his family's security company in Seattle. He is assigned the task of protecting a bunch of lingerie models from a killer. Valentine Hart is one of the models and also a friend of the family. While protecting the models and especially Valentine, Ethan has to come to terms with the fact that maybe there is more to the models than just looks. Ethan struggles with his past in order to have a future that he wants. Valentine also has to come to terms with her past and what she wants for her future. Ethan and Valentine pair up to catch a killer after two different women are murdered in two different cities. This book is a wild ride and keeps you on your toes.
