He’s her best friend’s older brother.
The hot, tough former Navy SEAL.
The man she’s had a crush on her entire life and now the man pretending to be her lover to keep her safe.
CEO Lainie Madden has her hands full. In charge of a growing tech company, her work and her employees are her life. She’s sworn off love, because the sad reality is that she stinks at choosing men who aren’t self-absorbed cheaters. But when she starts receiving disturbing death threats and her company’s website gets hit with relentless cyber-attacks, she’s in over her head.
What she never expected was her best friend’s bossy, rugged brother to steamroll in to play her fake boyfriend and very real protector.
Former SEAL and CIA agent Nick “Wolf” Garrick is second in command at Sentinel Security. He’s spent most of his life fighting and protecting others, proving he’s nothing like the ex-con who fathered him. He’s also spent years ignoring his scorching attraction to his little sister’s best friend. Lainie is sweet, fresh, smart…and off limits.But when he finds out she’s in danger, it flips a switch inside him. Whatever the risk, whatever it takes, even pretending that they’re lovers, he’ll protect Lainie and take down the person hunting her.The more time Lainie and Nick spend together, the more the lines blur. As danger swirls around them, their pretend relationship starts to feel very real. But Nick doesn’t do relationships and Lainie doesn’t want to get hurt again…

Wolf is a brother’s best friend, romantic suspense read. Straight from the jump you get some action as Nick, aka Wolf, is on the job. His sister’s best friend, Lainie, has a stalker. He has carried a torch for her for many years now, but he walked away because “it was what was necessary”. Ugh, God save us from men who think they know what is best for women.

The suspense of the story isn’t the sole focus. The story’s lens is more trained on these two colliding together again. Lainie is delightful-she is a brilliant businesswoman and determinedly independent. She has always felt attraction towards Nick, but felt he was off limits. Nick is an overprotective guy, and while he is a little gruff and I sometimes wanted to smack him upside the head, he’s lovable!

Wolf kicks off a new series and I am excited to read more about some of the others members introduced! I think this was a solid start to a new series that was enjoyable!
