BREAKING HER RULES (Red Stone Security #6 ) by Katie Reus-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK; Release Date April 7, 2013
Iris Tarango is a small-town girl from the wrong side of the tracks; she’s also a decorated former Marine who fought hard to become one of Red Stone Security’s most respected agents. But her perfectly ordered life is turned upside down when she’s assigned to guard the sexy, dominating tycoon she shares a secret history with. The instant Iris walks back into the billionaire’s diamond-studded orbit, the wild attraction flares between them…and her reputation, objectivity, and heart are in trouble.
After an attempt on his life, business magnate Wyatt Christiansen calls in major favors to hire Iris as his bodyguard. He knows she’s the best, though he has another motive too. He sees this as his final chance to win her heart. But when danger spins out of control, all Wyatt can think of is getting Iris out of harm’s way—even if it means losing her love in the end.
Unfortunately, the killer seems to know their every move. If Wyatt and Iris don’t figure out who put out the hit, they’ll lose more than their chance at happiness together.
REVIEW: BREAKING HER RULES is the sixth installment in Katie Reus’s RED STONE SECURITY series focusing on the men and women who work in high tech security and risk their lives for the people they love. Each of Katie’s storyline couples has a history and a past together and, Breaking Her Rules is no exception. Iris Tarango and Wyatt Christiansen grew up together in poverty-he with an alcoholic father and she with a single mom who refused to be tied down to any man. Life experiences make Iris and Wyatt whom they are today, but both with a military background will find them guarding and protecting each other from the bad guys as well as themselves.
Without giving away a major hook in the premise, Iris and Wyatt have known each other since they were young and unbeknownst to Iris, Wyatt has been in love with Iris since he was fifteen years old. They have always kept in contact with each other, whether on deployment, assignment or across the world, but one year earlier when Wyatt had been unable to contact Iris, his heart and his soul knew that he would never be able to live without the woman he has loved all of his life.
The storyline and their relationship becomes complicated when Red Stone Security is asked to protect Wyatt Christiansen after an attempt at his life is discovered by his staff. Wyatt ‘s business in casinos, hotels and computer software have made him a target, but with that comes the knowledge that perhaps someone from his military past is seeking retribution or revenge. Knowing Iris is employed by Red Stone Security, Wyatt specifically asked for Iris hoping to get some one of one time with the woman he loved. But things go from bad to worse, when several more attempts against Wyatt’s life leave two members of the security team dead and a distraught Wyatt when Iris is kidnapped and held for ransom.
BREAKING HER RULES is another fast paced and amazing storyline by Katie Reus. Unlike most of her previous novels in this series, there is little to no involvement with the heroes and heroines from past books. Wyatt Christiansen is a man in love, knows what he wants and will do whatever he can to ensure the woman he loves is kept safe and by his side. Iris is a strong heroine who is afraid to lose everything she has worked for throughout her life, but is willing to give love a chance with the man who literally is bound to her heart and her soul. I am a big fan of Katie’s Red Stone Security series and Breaking Her Rules is another welcome read. You can feel the need, the passion and the love as Katie writes a storyline about two people who have always known they belong together.
