Nothing makes for a better buddy read than a 'Psycho Romeo'...or in plain English...
Psycho Romeo - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

a bat-sh*t crazy stalker. 

If you love Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott's 'Unbreakable Bonds' series than this is the perfect way to continue that love affair. 'Psycho Romeo' is the first book in 'Ward Security' the spin-off series to 'Unbreakable Bonds'. Rowan Ward is the owner of 'Ward Securities' and one of the original group of four friends from 'Unbreakable Bonds' giving the reader the opportunity to get glimpses into the ongoing lives of the men from 'Unbreakable Bonds' and a whole new collection of fascinating men.

We were originally introduced to both of the MCs in 'Psycho Romeo' in earlier books. Geoffrey Ralse is rich and the life of the party according to his social media accounts. But he's so much more than he appears to be and the only person who seems to truly see this is his brother and Protective Agent Sven Larsen, whom we also met in the original series. But Sven's got his own issues and he's determined to keep his distance from Geoffrey. Which is a lot easier to do when his only contact is teaching Geoffrey self defense classes...it's when Geoffrey gets a stalker and hires Ward Security for protection. Insisting on Sven as his body that Sven's defenses begin to crumble.

While 'Psycho Romeo' was an awesome read in and of itself, I have to say sharing this reading experience with my reading buddy besties...Christelle, Josy, Simone and having the lovely Jan jump on board just made the story a whole lot more fun. 

The romance between Geoffrey and Sven for me was simply adorable and sweet. I loved these two as a couple they were incredibly sweet together and loved the interaction between them and how each man so readily came to the other's defense...it was just sweet, sweet, sweet!...and hot, did I mention these two men are scorching HOT!!!

As for the mystery...it had it's good points and was definitely the high-light of much discussion during our buddy read. While there may have been some weak points to this part of the story and not all of it sat well with everyone in our group for different reasons...some of us may have pegged who the stalker was a little early in the story. I care not I still enjoyed it and overall it added interest and was the vehicle that moved Geoffrey and Sven into close proximity allowing their relationship to progress.

This was an awesome start to this spin-off series and I'm looking forward to seeing what come next...I know it won't be Royce but I've got my Buddy Read Besties to keep me company while we read whatever comes next and wait for Royce. 

Once again my friends thanks for a good time and I'm definitely looking forward to whatever comes next.

Shiver - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

Fast-paced and highly entertaining with a wholly unsatisfying ending.
Guess I'll have to continue the series to hopefully get that HEA at some point. But having to read more of these books is a fate I can live with :)

What a way to finish!
Devour - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

'Shiver' gave us Lucas and Andrei

'Shatter' gave us Snow and Jude

'Torch' gave us Rowe and Noah

and now with release of 'Devour' finally we get 'Ian and Hollis' the final pairing and the final story in this unique group of men.

 

I started this adventure with my BR besties, Christelle and Josy and along the way we've happily had Ariana and Simone join in whenever they could. It's been a blast ladies and I honestly wouldn't have wanted to do this without you all. I know we still have the side stories and the spin-off series, Ward Investigations. But for these four men, the original group it's the end and what a hella' amazing ending it was.

 

Throughout this series we've spend time with all of these men. We've seen them at their best and their worst. We've laughed, cried and raged with them. We mourned when Rowe's beautiful wife, Mel was taken from him. We've all shared a solid hatred of the man known as Jagger. Many faces have been put to the eight men in this series but, and I admit I may have missed it, no one has put a face to the man we all hate...until now. It was during this final story that I was totally slapped in the face with who this man's physical description brought to my mind and I cast Armande Asante into the role for our buddy read...

I just felt it was only fair that we have a visual representation of someone who was so universally despised...RIP Jagger...we will miss you...NOT!!!

 

I could give a really long list of things I liked about this book or I could just be short, concise and to the point...EVERYTHING! I loved it all from start to finish this book just did it for me. We got to spend time with all 8 of these amazing men and it made sense they're family. They take care of each other and when one of them is in danger the others are there to protect him and in this case the threat was towards the group. 

 

While everyone was in this story, 'Devour' was Ian's time to shine. It was the story that allowed Ian and Hollis to become a couple and equally as important it was Ian's chance to face his demons and put his past to rest. A past that left him troubled and filled with very real fears for his future and whether or not he would have one because his past was still out there stalking him and his friends in the form of Boris Jagger.

 

As this group of men continue their cat and mouse game with Jagger, Ian and Hollis get to know each other better and yes, I do mean this in every sense of the word including biblical and can I just add here...damn, these men are hot...smokin', sexy, fan myself hot!!! But best of all is the love and respect that Hollis has for Ian as he slowly discovers all that he has endured. I loved that he saw the strength in Ian. Not because he was a fighter but because he was a survivor. What Ian endured would have easily taken down a lesser man. 

 

And on a closing note the ending of this book was superb...yeah, lets go with that one. I loved it. It was happy and I may have had a tear or two in my eye at one point but they were equal parts happy and sad. 

 

I can't wait for the spin-off series. Hopefully there will be more of these amazing men and a whole bunch of new ones for us to get to know and enjoy...let the buddy reads live on.

Loved.Loved this book. Great last installment of this series.

Besides Snow and Jude, Ian and Hollis are my favorite couple.
Finally we get Ian's full story. It made me love him even more.

I really loved all the dynamics of these men. They are such an amazing family. I'll sure be reading this series again.

I'm glad we getting Snow & Jude's novella and also Ian & Hollis's cause AND a new spin-off series starting with Geofrey and Sven. I'm not ready to say goodbye to these men yet ...


Nine years ago, he’d been caught in a nightmare and rescued by a few men who’d seen something in him that he might never understand. They’d taken him away, given him a home, and helped him create a new life. A fantastic new life. Together, the four of them had made a family, and now there were four more.
