My Review: Security Detail

"Sometimes we need to search outside of ourselves to find something bigger.  Stronger than us.  Love that can heal even the hurt that goes so deep it rips at the fabric of who we are."

Stopping to pick up a file late at night, former president's daughter Kayla Harris discovers her law office has been ransackedand the culprit is still there. But undercover Secret Service agent Conner Thorne comes to her rescue, and he knows exactly who is after herjust not why. Conner and Kayla go way back to their time in the White House when she was the rebellious first daughter and he was the rookie who saved her neck. Now Conner will put his life on the line again to keep Kayla away from the mobster he's investigating. And it's about much more than his job, because this time the woman he's sworn to protect is also the woman who's claimed his heart.

My Review: 5 stars!
When I pick up one of Ms. Phillipsbooks, I know right away that Im in for an adventure!  And I love that!  Her books actually kinda put me in the mind of action movies - they are super fast paced and theres always something happening!  She keeps me on the edge of my seat, wondering what could possibly happen next that these poor characters may or may not survive.  Those statements are definitely true of this one, as well!  Im also very excited that this is the first book in a new series and cant wait to find out whos book is next (I think I know, hopefully)!
This new series is Secret Service Agentsand I was curious at the premise of one being undercover and coming across his previous protectee, a former presidents daughter.  I have to be honest, I thought the Secret Services sole responsibility was protecting the president and dignitaries, so I was interested to learn of the other ways they work to protect the US.  I appreciated the details the author included that added depth and layers, both to the investigation and to Conners character.  Speaking of which: the characters are always my favorite part and the reason I keep reading any book, and these were excellent!  I enjoyed getting to know Kayla and seeing the strength of character so ingrained in her.  She is stubborn, brave, determined, but also has the sense to allow Conner and the other agents to protect her when needed.  Conner shares most of those attributes, but the last one.  He doesnt see himself as needing protection, but rather the one who has to watch over others.  I loved seeing him come to accept the help others offer.
I honestly cant think of anything I didnt enjoy about this story!  If youre looking for a fast-paced, suspenseful, on-the-edge-of-your-seat story, with a bit of romance, then I highly recommend this one!  

In case my review didn't say it loudly enough - you should read this book!  Seriously!  Well, if you love suspense.  If not, then maybe this isn't quite the book for you.  But if you love action, go for it!  And, there are always links below, if you're interested.  :)
Thanks for reading!
I hope your day is filled with sunshine!
