Book 3 - Corps Security Series
**Warning** This book is intended for a mature reading**
I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man.
But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.
All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self-right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have.
So I did the only thing I know how to do.
But he just won’t let me go.
The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.
To make her mine.
She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.
She’s it for me and she knows it.
She’s just too scared to admit it.
**NO cliffhanger, HEA, inter-connected standalones**
AND YES.....I've already been "harping" on Harper (hehehe) to get to work on the next book "Cooper"!!!
We all know that I am a HUGE fan of Harper Sloan! I met her before she launched Axel. I am proud to call her a friend! And because we are friends, I know that I can be completely honest with her and tell her like it is!!! And boy did she get an earful from me with Beck!!!!!! You know I don't do spoilers......I want to you all to experience the book just like I did..... totally shocked!!!
If you've been keeping up with the series, you know that Dee and Beck have an "on-again, off-again" relationship. We never got to hear what exactly what was going on........ well the wait is over!! and when they are "on-again" - only two words can describe it...... DESTRUCTIVE SEX....Holy crap!!! there were some of the hottest scenes that I have ever read! whew!
There is a MAJOR event that happens in this book (again ---- NO SPOILERS). Since I am a beta reader, I knew it was coming but that did not even begin to help me!! I was an emotional mess!! WRECK!! One of those moments when the hubs gives you that "OMG - Seriously, it's a book" look! I sent Harper some pretty stern messages after that!!! She handed me a virtual tissue and told me to suck it up! I had to put my kindle down and walk away! I couldn't sleep! It felt so real to me! She promised me that there was a HEA.....so I trusted her and picked up my Kindle. Of course she was right, but that ride to get there was bumpy to say the least!!! I'm tearing up again just remembering what a wreck I was. Normally when I have a book hangover it takes me a day, maybe two to get over it. IT WAS THREE DAYS!!!! And since Harper was the only one I could talk to, she heard a lot from me!!
As I was organizing this blog tour, I had to warn people to not let out any info or spoilers as to what happens. I warned them that it was very emotional. I don't think some of them took me too seriously!! I received several emails, text messages, FB messages. I was passing out tissues left and right and giving up my shoulder for emotional support!!! I even had to create a special FB page just for the ARC readers so we could be there for each other!!! I've met many great people on this group! We've been through a traumatic event together!!
So as you read this book (and I know you will) -- just remember it's not a "to be read in public" kind of book! Between the destructive sex and the emotional roller coaster..... you may get looks if you are in public!
Wow these books get better and better. I loved Axel, then after reading Cage he was my favorite. Now comes Beck and I was blown away. I have to be honest and say I could not sit down and write this review right away because I was in such shock. I'm telling you right now make sure you have a box of tissues handy. I did not take the warnings given to me seriously and found myself stumbling around in the dark at 3am tying not to wake the entire house up looking for some. Yes this was so good I could not put it down stayed up tell 4 in the morning reading.
The prologue was a little rough to see what Dee had to endure as a child. I wanted to jump in the book at this point to give her a hug and shield her from everything. I loved being able to see the whole Izzy and Axel thing play out in another point of view. I truly didn't get the whole Beck and Dee thing throughout Axel and Cage. All the back and forth between them had me questioning how this would work and then you start to understand and once that starts to click in you are pulled so deep into the story you can't put it down. You have to know what else happens, will things be ok, and how does each one of them move on. I know I'm being vague but I really can't say too much without giving things away. I refuse to give spoilers on such a great book.
I loved it when Dee had Sway extend the glitter sidewalk to her business. I would love to see one of these glitter sidewalks because there is no doubt no matter what kind of mood you are in when you saw it you would smile. I will say when I thought I had myself pulled together and could finish the book Sway does something that is awesome that caused me to sob once again. I love Sway he is the best. This was a roller coaster ride with ups downs and tummy turning loops. I laughed, cried, had a few what just happened moments, and a few no this cannot be happening why now moments. You know you have a great book when you can keep me up all night, make me sob, and leave me wanting more. I need the next two books like yesterday. I'm going to let you all on a little secret I love Maddox and have since we were introduced to him in Axel. After this I need to read his book but I have to wait so that is what I will do....wait. Please read this book with a friend or know someone who has read it you may need support while reading it. Thank goodness for Twinsie Brenda or I would have been a mess.
Here are some of my favorites from the book:
I am Denise Ann Roberts. Strong, proud, and independent. A loyal friend, godmother, and I radiate Fucking happiness so that people will never see how lonely I really am. ~Dee
He said it’s time for me and you to start fighting the same war and not different battles. ~Dee
I stand by your side because this is where I’m meant to be. I stand by your side because you didn’t have the strength to hold yourself up. That’s what you do for the person you love. ~Beck
I swear Sway has some kind of tracker on my truck. Ever since Greg told him I was the glitter fairy, he finds the need to come shower that shit all over me. ~Coop
Don’t think you have to act a certain way for me, Beck. Let me be your rock. ~Dee
About The Author
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her ereader attached. As an ex-reviewer and blogger, Harper's passion for reading runs deep. It wasn't until 'Axel' decided to take up residence that she realized her true calling.
She started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
