An Ali Review: Psycho Romeo (Ward Security #1) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

Standard
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Geoffrey Ralse is known for being the life of the party. He loves the club scene, hanging with his friends, and flirting with whomever catches his eye. He certainly isn’t going to stop living his life just because some would-be stalker starts sending him threats. 

But it all changes when Geoffrey is drugged and wakes up half naked in his own home with a new message from his stalker. 

He needs help and there’s only one person he trusts… 

Protective Agent Sven Larsen has been fighting Geoffrey’s flirtatious advances for months, even though he’s impossibly drawn to the man. There’s no way he can be around him twenty-four/seven and not finally crack. But one look at Geoffrey’s haunted eyes, and he knows there’s no way he’s letting Geoffrey walk out of Ward Security without him. 

Even if it means breaking his own rules, he will keep Geoffrey safe.
This is the first book in the new Ward Security series which is a branch off of these author’s Unbreakable Bonds series.  I was especially excited to see this series start because Rowe (who owns Ward Security) was my favorite character from Unbreakable Bonds.  I was excited to find out I was going to get more of him.
This book stars Sven and Geoffrey who we have met multiple times before in the other series.  You do not have to have read those books though to be able to understand and enjoy this plot.  Geoffrey has had his eye on Sven for awhile and it’s been a bunch of fun and games for him to tease and flirt with Sven.  A very serious situation though changes everything.  Geoffrey is scared and finds he has no one he can count on other than the guys he’s met through Ward Security and Sven is the only person who can make him feel safe again.  Against his better judgment Sven agrees to be a bodyguard for Geoffrey and immediately the chemistry between the two men comes to light.
The story is fast paced and exciting in regards to the mystery part of it and the romance is both sweet and romantic in places and smoking hot in others.  The two guys are combustible when they are together.  They get together quickly but it feels realistic as they have been building up to this for a long time.  We get to know both of them much better and I liked them both a lot.  They were both shown in a more detailed and complex way than we’ve seen of them in the past.
If you have read the Unbreakable Bonds series you will recognize a lot of the characters from that.  Rowe, Noah and Andrei have big roles in this and we see some of the Ward Security characters in more detail.  The authors set the stage for which other characters we will see in future books.
This was a really enjoyable read for me.  It was action packed and yet romantic and emotional in places.  I enjoyed it a lot and am really looking forward to the next books in the series.
Cover:  I think this cover is well done and it fits the story plot perfectly.
