From USA Today bestselling author Sidney Halston comes the third Iron-Clad Security novel, Kiss Kiss Bang.
Six-foot-two and ripped...with superior computer skills, Josef "Joey" Clad is not your typical ex-Marine. The co-owner of Iron-Clad securities is 100% Alpha male, but under his muscular physique, he's the best hacker in Miami who specializes in running Iron-Clad's cyber ops. The perfect skill set for their new client who is getting threatening emails, a client who he definitely wants to get to know better. Much better.
Single mom, widow, Olivia Monroe has exceptional dreams that she refuses to let go of. Fifteen years ago, she left her broken home in New York City and never looked back. Now a dark horse candidate for Florida governor, she's not looking for a relationship. Even with the hot guy who sweeps in and saves her computer the night before a big speech. Her hero has trouble written all over him. Joey is too handsome, too funny, too confident, and way too hard to resist.
Too bad he's now her bodyguard.
The Iron Clad series definitely went out with a bang with Joey and Olivia's story!! I have loved every book in this series more than the last and Kiss Kiss Bang is no exception. I didn't think anything would top Last First Kiss but this book edged it out.
Joey is the Clad in Iron Clad Security. The guy who gets all hot and bothered about algorithms, feels more comfortable behind the computer than in the field, but definitely can handle anything that might come his way. When he happens to run into Olivia, the widowed single mom running for Governor, in a big box tech store, the connection is nearly immediate. She's normally so put together yet on this day, she's disheveled, laughing at nothing, standing in line with a broken laptop. When threats come near Olivia, Joey takes it upon himself to protect her and her daughter.
I admit that, while I couldn't wit for Joey's story, he definitely needed some redemption after the way he treated his sister, Annie in Last First Kiss. And he got it, in spades. Joey is romantic, caring, and jumps into protecting Olivia and her daughter almost immediately. Olivia is hardcore. She's overcome a lot in her life and is taking on so much raising her daughter alone and running for governor. When the threats start coming, she doesn't cower in the corner like a damsel in distress. She steps up and does everything she can to keep going but also keep her family safe. I will miss this series so much. I have loved all three of these books so much and I'm sad that there will be no more Iron Clad stories coming. All three can definitely be read as standalones but once you read one, you'll want them all.
*This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*
An awesome read with a perfect mix of suspense, romance and a bit of humor. This one was completely entertaining and I didn't want to put it down. The writing is excellent and the characters will grab your attention immediately. What really gets you though is the unique fresh storyline this author came up with.
Former marine Joey Clad may be a computer geek but he's all alpha as Olivia Monroe quickly discovers. Olivia is a single mom and a gubernatorial candidate so the last thing she needs right now is a relationship yet she can't seem to resist the strong and caring Joey. She needs his help finding out who is threatening her so spending time with him can't be avoided. Will she be able to resist him for long? Does she want to?
Definitely a book I recommend.
