Falling in love could expose a woman in hiding, in the fourth Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker.
Former mercenary Ryder Sinclair’s stunning discovery that he has three half brothers in Castle Rock, Colorado, is giving them all the chance to color in the spaces of their tragic pasts. For Ryder, establishing roots is made all the more desirable by Felicity Jones. But if Ryder’s instincts are correct, this breathtaking beauty is in trouble.
Castle Rock isn’t Felicity’s home. Like her false identity, it’s just a cover. All she wants is enough cash to keep moving to another temporary hideaway—to stay on the run from a secret that’s haunted her for years. As safe as Ryder’s strong embrace makes her feel, she fears that falling for him, and staying in Colorado, will put everyone she’s come to love in danger.
The more Ryder learns about Felicity, the more determined he is not to let her go. It’s time for her to stop running—even as a relentless danger closes in, threatening their love and their lives.
Ryder “Ace” Sinclair is trying to come to terms with part of his past. Felicity Jones just met someone who’s given her hope. She also has secrets and she wants to keep them that way.
There are previous characters that make appearances throughout. So if you’re behind in reading this series or if this is your first foray into the world of Ace Security you may want to look into what you’ve missed. This could be considered a standalone but hopefully you’ll want to try and stay true to the series. It always surprises me in how creative the author is when creating her stories. You never read one of her stories and think that you’ve read it, or something similar, before. They all seem so original. We get plenty of action and how much you sink into the story you may even hold your breath. You have to wonder if she has a mean streak hidden somewhere. She just has a way in creating an evil character that seems so believable.
One thing I really love is that I have no trouble tuning out the rest of the world so I can get lost in Ms. Stoker’s world. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good ending but the worst part about an ending is that it means the story is over. Something I loved about the ending was getting caught up on some of the couples that have already had stories. Then the sad part comes around because I’ll have to wait for the next book to see if they make another appearance. Then you end up happy because it feels like there’s been a hint and then maybe I won’t have to wait too long to see what Ace Security will have in store for me next.
It had been a week since he’d last kissed her, but he remembered every second of that first kiss as if it had just happened. He hadn’t thought anything could top it, but he was wrong. This kiss was the best he’d ever experienced. Ryder had a feeling that every touch of his lips to hers would top the one before it. He wanted a lifetime of her taste on his lips.
Her head tilted, giving him more room, and he didn’t hesitate to take advantage. His tongue speared through her lips, tangling with hers, memorizing her feel and taste. One hand moved to her nape to hold her against him, and the other trailed down her body and came to rest on her breast, right over her heart. He didn’t grope her, merely wanted to feel the beat of her heart under his hand.
They kissed for several minutes. Neither willing to be the first to pull away. Felicity participated in the kiss the same way she did everything else . . . with all she had. She didn’t meekly sit there and let him kiss her—her tongue pushed against his and learned every inch of his mouth. When he growled, she moaned right back. She took what she wanted.
And it was hot as hell.
