When Krista catches her boss doing the unthinkable, the only thing she can do is run. Straight into the arms of the eye-candy she’s been trying not to flirt with on her lunch break. But whose side is he on?
Ryan’s security firm is having a hard time getting off the ground, and this may be just the job to help the company out. But pseudo-bounty hunter isn’t really what Pierce Securities is trying to get a name for. When he finds out their target is the classy lady from the park, all of his senses go on high alert. What do these men want with her?
When Krista is forced into Ryan’s sanctuary in the woods, she realizes just how wild he is, and that she doesn’t want to tame him. He may feel his methods of protection endangered her, but without Krista in his life, Ryan is crazed.
This is book #1 in the Pierce Securities, a Romantic Suspense series by Anne Conley, author of the Stories of Serendipity and The Four Winds.

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
When I first picked up this book for review, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It has a great balance of suspense and romance to make it one of the best reads for me this year. The story had a great plot and kept me well entertained. There were a couple of scenes that were hard to read just because of the topic. The characters were amazing. I enjoyed Ryan and Krista’s relationship; they are complete opposites but yet they compliment each other nicely. I had to laugh at some of the situations they got themselves in because it was Ryan’s job to protect her, not try to get in her pants. Watching them both become frustrated and try to fight the attraction was incredibly amusing and entertaining. In addition to the main characters, I loved all the boys of the securities firm. They all have such awesome personalities that it was hard to remember they’re fictional characters.

The suspenseful element of the book was well done. Right off the bat you learn what it is that Krista sees her boss doing but you don’t know who the puppet master is until later in the book. I kept guessing as to who it could be and holy moley batman I was so wrong. I do wish though that we had gotten to find out the motive for all of it. This is the first book in the series, so maybe in another book we’ll find out. There is no cliffhanger for those who don’t dig them and you’ll love the ending. Happy reading!
