Title: Locked in Temptation (The Protectors #3)
Author: Brenda Jackson
Stars: 3 stars out of 5
I read book one in the series and now book 3. I have realized that why some might say this is Romantic Suspense in all honestly it is 100% romance with very little suspense thrown in. Pretty much Brenda Jackson needed the characters to do something while they waited for the action to pick up so they have lots and lots of sex.
Locked in Tempatation closes the left open story lines from the other two books and hands readers what they want in a nice little red bow.
This line I even highlighted because it had me laughing so hard. I'm not sure it was meant to be funny but I couldn't help but roll my eyes and laugh.
“Relax, lover. I’m fine. I just have to go potty. I’ll be back.”
For those who love Brenda Jackson they will love this series but if you find you need more meat to your story just pass this series by.
His job is to protect her…no matter the cost
Police detective Joy Ingram's connection to elite security expert Stonewall Courson is instant. Undeniable. Electric. But her commitment to protect and serve has always come first. Everything else is secondary—especially when she uncovers an underground surrogate baby-making ring. Joy can't risk a distraction during the most important case of her career, not even one as sexy as reformed ex-con Stonewall.
There are few things Stonewall values more than a strong woman. But when Joy's investigation draws her into a deadly conspiracy that goes deeper than she ever imagined, he must convince her that he's the best man to protect her. And while he puts his life on the line to save hers, the insatiable attraction between them becomes the one danger neither of them can escape
