He thinks she’s out of his league.
Lyosha Vasiliev met Mila by chance, and now she’s all he thinks about. But the two couldn’t be more different, so Lyosha won’t go there. As a security expert, he skirts the law on the regular. Unlike Mila, the newest employee at Red Stone Security, who spends her free time volunteering at an animal shelter. Despite his determination to stay away from her, when it becomes clear his past has come back to haunt him—and poses a threat to her—Lyosha immediately steps in. And he’ll cross any line to keep her safe.
But he can’t seem to walk away.
Mila met Lyosha when he brought in a half-starved stray cat to the shelter she volunteers at. He tries to act tough—and okay, he is. He should be the last man she wants, but she loves his sexy tattoos, gruff demeanor, and that he has a marshmallow inside that only she gets to see. When someone threatens her, he’s convinced it’s linked to his past. He’s made it clear that he’ll protect her with his life—but he won’t give her his heart. Not when he blames himself for bringing danger to her doorstep. Except Mila isn’t the kind of woman who walks away from what she wants. And Lyosha finds himself unwilling to let her go without a fight.
Red Stone Security Series, #16Author note: all books in this series may be read as stand-alones, complete with HEA.
Secret Enemy continues the Red Stone Security series and I might have screamed in excitement when I saw it. I LOVE this series but thought it was done. You don’t need to have read the previous books, but you should add them to your TBR because they are good!
Mila and Lyosha are friends. The kind of friends who secretly pine for each other but suffer in silence. That is until Mila shares a concern she has with her roommate’s boyfriend. Lyosha is that beautiful blend of totally alpha male and deeply devoted man in love. There is no way Mila couldn’t love him because he is just so perfect! Thankfully, Mila is a wonderful heroine so you are just plain happy for them both. Mila is independent and incredibly hard working which is admirable.
Romantic suspense fans simply MUST add Secret Enemy to their TBR. Also, MOM-read these books! I know you will love them. So, basically, everyone AND my mother should read Secret Enemy ?
