Trace Kogan will go to any length to protect those who need protecting. That is the business he is in; the business his father, Casper Kogan, started with Bryce Trexler more than thirty-five years ago. Trace spends day and night eliminating threats to clients, so when the danger hits too close to home, he won’t let anything come between him and the woman who desperately needs his help.
His fear… the physical reaction he has to Marissa may pose a bigger danger than the ghost that they find themselves up against.
Marissa Trexler has spent the last twelve months of her life in hiding, tucked away in one safe house after another for her own protection. The threat to her is real even if the reason is still unknown. Strangely, whoever is after her seems to find her no matter where she goes, leading her family to believe it’s an inside job.
So when the decision is made that Trace will provide personal protection, she can’t say no, even if being close to him adds another level of danger… and this one is to her heart.
I adore Nicole Edwards books, she is one author that i ‘one click’ no questions asked.
Sniper 1 security is without doubt going to be another awesome series and this first book really sets you up for future books.
Nicole gives you a layout of the two family dynamics, the who’s who in both the Trexler and Kogan families, what there roles are within the family and also in the Sniper 1 company. We seem to meet alot of characters which is very good for a die hard Nicole Edwards fan like me as it means more books in the series!
However i did have one niggle that really got on my nerves with this book, which is i must say unusual for a Nicole Edwards book. There was too much repetition on some details, there is only so many times you need to rehash that the patriarchs have been best friends for decades and they were the ones that started the company over 35 years ago. Also that Trace and Marissa have been friends since childhood and have secretly lusted for each other, there were more but you get my point. Im a grown up with a good memory i didnt need to be reminded of the bones of the story repeatedly.
I loved the plot and couldnt wait for the action to start as nearly 55% of this book seemed to be the set up/getting the layout and to know all the players.
But when the story moved onto the point of why Marissa had been in hiding for 12 months, and when her and Trace got there heads out of the butts, things really heated up and it became the greatness that is associated with Nicole. I was i little disappointed that i had to wait until 60% through before Trace and Marissa actually touched each other and we could really see their chemistry, but when we did, along came the sexy, damn those scenes were hot.
This book was totally the set up book for more in this series and with all the hints at future matches for the vast cast of characters i am intrigued to read more, Nicole gave us just enough background on each prospective couple to wet your apatite and leave you wanting more from the Sniper 1 family.
