Publisher's Summary

Someone is trying to kill Marc Foster.

Attempted poisoning was bad enough, but when the would-be killer messes with the brakes on Marc’s precious Porsche, the art dealer admits he needs help. He just wasn’t expecting help to be quite so dark and sexy.

Royce Karras loves his job at Ward Security. He’s making up for a lifetime of bad decisions and a bloody past he’d rather forget. But Marc isn’t the spoiled rich boy he thought he’d be protecting. Sticking close to Marc as his “boyfriend” gives Royce insight into his toxic family, but it also reveals a brilliant, compassionate man who completely disarms Royce. Against his better judgment, Royce finds himself falling.

But can they find a way to make it work when Royce’s past threatens to tear their lives apart? Their future hinges on a lost Renaissance painting, six Bichon Frises, and a pornographic Robin Hood.

No worries, right?

Oh the voices ...

First things first. I'm a big fan, BIG fan of these two authors' books. The Unbreakable Bonds series is fantastic. The spin off series - aka where this book fits in, is just as great. They're hot, steamy, sexy, the men are complex and sweet and infuriating and just all sorts of good stuff. However ... man, the audiobooks are hard for me to listen to. Believe me, it has nothing to do with a preconceived idea of what the characters should sound like, oh no, not at all. The issue with this one, is the same as it was with the previous books, Kenneth Obi's attempt to make his voice deeper.

As I've said before, I get that this is a tough series to narrate because the books have like 10+ characters in them with dialogue. But when he's narrating (in this case) Royce's parts in dialogue, he sounds absolutely ridiculous. Like when a woman tries to imitate a man, so she sounds like she's puckering her lips. It's very obvious he can not maintain that level of tone of voice, and had he chosen to not go so low, it would have sounded way better. He did the same thing with Sven. It's just so incredibly obvious that it's totally distracting to me. I just wish he'd play around with voices just a little more in order to find tones that are more natural sounding.

Hooked On This Series

Found this series because of the narrator. I don't know that I would have picked the series to read, but since I am a fan of Kenneth Obi, I started going through his works. Stumbled on the first book and have waited, no so patiently, for each one after. Mystery, suspense, emotion and all the feels.

The characters are brought to life through the narration and Kenneth does a fabulous job of making each one unique. There were several side characters in this particular book and it was always easy to know who was speaking.

I sat on the edge of my seat.
I laughed out loud.
I cried the last half of the final chapter. Heart wrenching to happy.

Hot and Suspenseful

Suspense for both MCs while they fall for each other.
This was a great book. It’s been awhile since I heard the last book so I had forgotten that Ward Security is a spin-off of the Unbreakable Bonds series. A few characters are mentioned so I had to refresh myself. You don’t need it to get this book but it adds another layer to knowing these guys. I’m super bummed that those books aren’t in audiobook form. I am keeping my fingers crossed that someday the powers that be decide to make that happen. Ok, enough of a rant.
Royce is a bodyguard with a shady past who ends up protecting an art dealer who keeps having attempts on his life. The difference between these two’s backgrounds makes an interesting play for them falling in love.
Kennath Obi is great as usual. He’s def one of my favorite narrators.

Another blockbuster in the Ward Security series

I have enjoyed every single one of the books and audiobooks in this series. Kenneth Obi brings these beloved characters to life in a way I didn't think was possible. I recommend listening to them in order. It isn't mandatory, but you get more context that way.

A twist of humor adds to the thrilling mysteries.

Marc is a millionaire and after the second attempt on his life goes to Ward Security for help. He hates to admit it but it looks like the one after him could be a family member. Royce is hired to play his boyfriend to help solve the mystery and protect Marc. The play acted soon becomes real but then Royce's past comes out to tear everything apart. He tells Marc the problem and Marc also has a past... some of his acquisitions aren't as easily or legally obtained. Marc calls in a friend and they go to get a painting to help both get it in a museum where it belongs and free Royce of his past.
I think this so far is my favorite of the three Ward security books. Though I have loved them all, something about Royce and his past and Marc just mesh and the touch of humor when they bring in Marc's friend seals the deal. There are so many twists and lots of smoking sex and of course a happy ending.
Again, this is a great book But Kenneth Obi's narration just adds so much more to the story. I love his evil laughter, the grunts and emotion he puts into the sex scenes and emotions when someone is in danger. Iy just adds so much to an already good book.
