Series: Tall, Dark, and Deadly #4, Walker Security #1
Kyle, one the alpha men of Walker Security, is hot, bothered, and intense, and when Myla lands in his line of fire, she’ll soon learn her secrets, and her passion, belong to him, from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.
Myla is beautiful, a dove with clipped wings, captive by the wolf, a vicious drug lord. One look into her eyes and Kyle could see the pain, the fear—the desperation. Or so it seems. He’s been fooled before by a woman and it cost him everything and everyone he loved. He won’t be fooled again.
I loved where we ended up at the end of the last book, with Kara and Blake finding their own ‘happy place’ but of course there’s the question of what happened to Kara’s sister Myla and how into the cartel has she gone. So that’s where we pick up in this 4th installment of the series, yet the beginning of a spin off
Kyle as you all remember is one of the best hackers out there, and part of the Walker Security family. We know of him really just as being an amazing supporting character, but his role is always really important, and it’s nice to see him get his own story. If you recall, right after the helicopter carrying Myla and Alvarez exploded, Kyle felt like something was up and saw some video footage showing more than met the eye. Thats what started his year long quest to find Myla.
The other nice bit of this story is that we see how Myla ended up in the situation with the cartel and we get to see how she’s so much more like her sister than you’d ever know. especially given how much Myla favors her mom while Kara favors her dad.
Throughout this story what we have is a lot of trust issues being settled and the wonder of when the other shoe is going to drop. Kyle is hired on as a bodyguard but to whom he doesn’t find out until he’s into the conversation quite a bit. He learns that its to guard Myla and that means that things couldn’t get any better. He’s not only found her, but he’s also put himself in a position to finish the vendetta that Kara and Blake have against Alvarez since Myla is ‘his woman’.
We get a mix of trust issues all around, between Myla and Kyle of course and then among Myla and Alvarez and then again with all the men that are part of Alvarez’s crew. There’s so much unknown going on that you have to wonder who’s going to turn on whom and then who’s going to die. I feel like we’re on eggshells throughout the entirety of the story since Alvarez is such a shady cartel king and i kept feeling like he was going to pop up at the worst moment and Kyle was going to be in deep shit.
In true Lisa Renee Jones form, the passion and chemistry between our leads is off the charts – they know that they are treading in bad space but they also know that what they have is real. there’s the bit of Alvarez finding them out along with everyone else, and there’s also the fact that Myla is Kara’s sister, Blake’s wife and well, when word gets out, the men are none too happy.
The cliffhanger comes late in the story on this one, and there’s a kidnapping, a private jet taking them to locales non disclosed and the hope for a reunion that may never come. Def a great story and i’m thrilled that both Asher and Jacob seem to have their own stories coming too. they are also great supporting guys that we see more in Kyle’s book and i can’t wait to see what’s up for them. Enjoy!
