This is the start of the Trident Security Omega Team series. It is advised to first read the Trident Security series in order to avoid spoilers. If not, this book can be read as a standalone novel.
Logan AKA Cowboy is immediately attracted to Dakota. She is not impressed with him when they first meet, as he assumes she needs his help - but she can take care of herself. He meets her again later and the sparks fly all over the room. Now he just hopes he can impress her enough that she gives him a chance.
Dakota is a police officer who is always trying to prove herself in a man's world. With all the odds stacked against her, she wishes for greater things. When it turns out a killer has her in his sights, she is going to need all the help she can get.
Amazing and riveting conclusion of the mystery killer from many books before in the previous series. Introducing the new Omega Team series, where the members are new and very hot. This story has so much heat and such a compelling mystery, the pages nearly singe the reader. I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Review originally featured at Angel's Guilty Pleasures
Five brave military heroes have survived the hell of a Taliban prison to return home—and take on civilian missions no one else can. They’re the men of ARES Security. Highly skilled, intimidating, invincible, and one by one, tested again and again…
Lucas St. Clair’s prestigious family had a political future neatly planned out for him—one that didn’t include his high school sweetheart, Mia Ramon. Under their pressure, Lucas gave her up. But since surviving captivity, he’s a changed man—and a crucial member of ARES Security. When he discovers a dead man clutching a picture of Mia that bears a threatening message, his fiercest protective instincts kick in, and he knows he must go to her.
Mia has never forgiven Lucas for breaking her heart, and she’s convinced her feelings for him are in the past. But it’s soon clear that isn’t true for either of them. Now, determined to solve the crime and keep Mia safe, with his ARES buddies backing him up, Lucas will have to reconstruct the murder victim’s last days—and follow a lethal trail that leads right back to the fate of the woman he still loves…
The ARES men are back.
I’m finding that I enjoying the ex-military heroes who band together, like brothers, to form their own business. It is such a fantastic and enjoyable concept to read.
Kill Without Shame is full of mystery, suspense, a second chance romance, and so much more. It was a non-stop page turner, entertaining, and satisfying. I enjoyed the mystery surrounding the murder and Mia. All the characters where easy to like. The second chance love story was captivating and adorable. Lucas and Mia worked together and made a great couple. And, last it was nice to see more of the other guys Lucas works with. They each have their own unique abilities and backgrounds and to see how they stand up for one of their own, it’s touching.
I had a delightful time read Kill Without Shame. I LOVE the men of ARES Security and can’t wait for the next installment.
Rated: 4 Stars

Marine First Sergeant Logan “Cowboy” Reese was rescued hours before he would’ve met the same fate as his five murdered teammates in Afghanistan. Returning to the US and civilian life hadn’t been part of his plans at this stage of his career, but dealing with PTSD forced his hand. However, an unexpected job offer with Trident Security, a private firm in Tampa, has him finding a purpose in life again, but will his flashbacks destroy a promising future altogether?
Officer Dakota Swift has worked hard to prove she belongs on Tampa PD with the big boys and has been trying to get assigned to the Special Operations Division. A local, serial killer, targeting submissives in the BDSM lifestyle, gives her the opportunity to get her feet wet in undercover work. She’s assigned to the joint task force between TPD, the FBI, and Trident Security, but can she survive her attraction to her new partner, Logan?
The operatives of Trident Security have a keen interest of catching the “Kink Killer” as the heads of the company also own a BDSM club, The Covenant. Until his identity is discovered, no woman in the lifestyle community is safe. With the body count rising, will the killer be caught before someone from The Covenant becomes the next victim?
***While reading the original Trident Security series is not necessary for this book, it is recommended for optimum enjoyment.
Vic is just sick of his job and needs some time off. His ex needs his help. Should he help her out of the goodness and the memories? The chemistry between them is explosive and just seeing her again stirs it all back up.
Mac knows that being around Vic could kiss her. Without his help she would die anyway. She has to solve this latest case without getting them all killed. If only she could solve this case without feeling Vic in her heart again.
This book was blessedly fast pace. Right from the start it is heart pounding, and the case leaping off the page. I was pleased that the characters truly belong to together. Their story is such a sexy and intense heat with a great mystery woven in. I eagerly turned each page. I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
