Return to the USA Today bestselling Red Stone Security series!
He thinks she’s out of his league.
Lyosha Vasiliev met Mila by chance, and now she’s all he thinks about. But the two couldn’t be more different, so Lyosha won’t go there. As a security expert, he skirts the law on the regular. Unlike Mila, the newest employee at Red Stone Security, who spends her free time volunteering at an animal shelter. Despite his determination to stay away from her, when it becomes clear his past has come back to haunt him—and poses a threat to her—Lyosha immediately steps in. And he’ll cross any line to keep her safe.
But he can’t seem to walk away.
Mila met Lyosha when he brought in a half-starved stray cat to the shelter she volunteers at. He tries to act tough—and okay, he is. He should be the last man she wants, but she loves his sexy tattoos, gruff demeanor, and that he has a marshmallow inside that only she gets to see. When someone threatens her, he’s convinced it’s linked to his past. He’s made it clear that he’ll protect her with his life—but he won’t give her his heart. Not when he blames himself for bringing danger to her doorstep. Except Mila isn’t the kind of woman who walks away from what she wants. And Lyosha finds himself unwilling to let her go without a fight.
Red Stone Security Series, #16
Author note: all books in this series may be read as stand-alones, complete with HEA.
I love getting more Red Stone Security books, especially when it’s for the man who works for Viktor. Viktor’s story is one of my favorites of the series because of the way he was and how he treated Dominique.
You get a lot of those same traits in Lyosha. He’s extremely protective of Mila. He treats her like every woman secretly wants. If it were up to Lyosha, he would wait hand and foot on her. That doesn’t mean he is that strong Alpha male. He’s very much an intense, dominant male. He just chooses to treat Mila like a queen.
Mila had a bit of insecurity, but also had brave moments when she was upfront with Lyosha about her feelings, and she wasn’t a doormat. It’s a good mix to find in a heroine. I loved the “extra” her family brought to the story. I would even love to get a couple more books with the sisters. They were a fun and loving family.
This was definitely an enjoyable read and I’m looking forward to more in the series.
Lyosha thinks that his past is what he is. Meeting Mila the newest member of the security team and volunteering at the animal shelter. When he brought in a stray cat, She thought that was like him, tough, and a marshmallow inside.
A guy dating Mila’s roommate Emily, is making a move on her. Hearing about this Lyosha persuaded him to not come to the apartment till after Mila has moved out. This set her up for this guy’s revenge and to show her, he is boss.
Especially after seeing the text that Mila had sent of words he had said.
Would Lyosha be there to protect her. Good heart warming story of a love that comes, and doesn’t want to be denied.
Given ARC by Net Galley and K R Press for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
Back to Red Stone
So happy to have another Red Stone Security book! Lyosha fights his feelings for Mila, but in the end realizes they are meant for each other. OTT H and plenty of action. So excited to be back in this world
