Stars 5 out of 5
Breaking her rules is a fun romantic suspense that Katie Reus is known for and I loved her tie into The Serafina: Sin City Series. Iris Tarango is one of the few women who work in the world of security after she left the Marines. She loves her job but one night in Sin City changed her life forever. Wyatt Christiansen is one force to be reckoned with in and out of the business world and he has known Iris Tarango his whole life so when he had the chance to marry her he wasn’t going to let it go.
I love how fun Katie Reus makes her Red Stone Security series. There are lots of fun characters who would scare me to death if I ever met them in person. She created characters that are fiercely loyal to one another. You never have to question what the characters are going to do and why because she lays it out for the readers so they can enjoy the ride. She always adds a little twist in the end which was not unexpected but it was fun.
Like all of her Red Stone Security novels you do not want to read this without a fan nearby with the will written romances scenes. The book’s pacing is perfect and will not take the reader more than an afternoon to finish it. With all the authors characters the female leads are strong, feisty, know who they are. The male’s leads are Alpha from head to toe but Wyatt is a little different because this time he is the client and has to watch the woman he loves protect him.
It’s a fun quick read and something you will want to add to your beach reads when summer comes. This book can be read as a standalone but you will enjoy it more if you have read the other novels because characters from those make an appearance.

Thank you Heidi for this review.
Synopsis: Iris Tarango is a small-town girl from the wrong side of the tracks; she’s also a decorated former Marine who fought hard to become one of Red Stone Security’s most respected agents. But her perfectly ordered life is turned upside down when she’s assigned to guard the sexy, dominating tycoon she shares a secret history with. The instant Iris walks back into the billionaire’s diamond-studded orbit, the wild attraction flares between them…and her reputation, objectivity, and heart are in trouble.
After an attempt on his life, business magnate Wyatt Christiansen calls in major favors to hire Iris as his bodyguard. He knows she’s the best, though he has another motive too. He sees this as his final chance to win her heart. But when danger spins out of control, all Wyatt can think of is getting Iris out of harm’s way—even if it means losing her love in the end.
Unfortunately, the killer seems to know their every move. If Wyatt and Iris don’t figure out who put out the hit, they’ll lose more than their chance at happiness together.
