It was in a small room in a hotel in Washington, DC that my life changed forever—again.
My son, Gerry, had hit his nose causing a river of blood to run down his chin and onto his dress shirt. Sam and I had taken him from the party to clean him up when all hell broke loose.
As we crossed the reception of the hotel, I noticed a man—one of the many security detail Robert had installed to ensure his fortieth birthday party was not disturbed. He watched me leave the ballroom and just as I entered the restroom, I heard him speak.
“Can I help you?”
I hadn’t turned to look and see if he was addressing me—I was too focused on Gerry. I had enough time to grab a fistful of hand towels before it happened.
Before an invisible force hit me like a tank and I was thrown forwards, landing heavily on my side. My ears rang, my vision was blurred and my heart raced in fear.
What had just happened?
A cloud of something grey swirled into the room. Was it dust or smoke? I wasn’t sure. My brain couldn’t compute what I saw, couldn’t comprehend what was going on. I heard screams, I heard shouts, but the ringing in my ears distorted the sound. The solid oak door to the bathroom hung from one bracket, a gap had formed but not wide enough for me to see through clearly.
The sound in my head lessened, replaced by the shrill of a fire alarm. Splatters of water hit my face. The smoke, or dust, must have triggered the sprinkler system.
I heard a moan and it was as if fingers had snapped in front of my face—my son was lying somewhere on that cold tiled floor.
“Gerry?” I called out. My voice sounded strained even to my ears.

I love the Fallen Angel Series and I have to confess that when I read the third part and it was supposed to be the last one, I was quite sad. I just felt like there is more to everyone stories and I am so glad that Tracie Podger decide to give us one more book in the series :) Similarly to the previous books, the action and danger are on high speed, mixed with pain, heartbreak and to lighten the mood some sexy fun and humour :) Although, what else can you expect from Robert and co ;)
Robert is his normal brooding, sexy dominant self, but in this book I was able to finally really see also his dark side. To see what he is capable of doing to protect his family and the people he loves. I got a glimpse of that side of him in his novella, Robert, but this is the first time I was able to see it through Brooke's eyes. And I have to say, it only made me love him more. He is definitely bad ass and yes, kind of scary but at the same time, I am pretty sure that if it was me he was protecting, I would just feel safe. If you are the one crossing him, though, that would be probably the last thing you will do. And it will be quite painful.
I also saw a different side of Brooke. Even though, she's always been strong, no matter of the heartbreak, pain and danger she's been through, here I was also able to see the softer, motherly side of her. That's not to mean that she is not strong. She is, but she is also vulnerable and the one person who helps her feel safe and strong again is the love of her life, Robert. Even if it takes time for her to really realise it.
In addition to Brooke and Robert's story, I loved reading about Travis on the background and how his life turned up. I am not going to reveal what happens with him but what I can say is that it was definitely quite unexpected. Even if I waited for that since I read the first book in the series. In addition to that, there is some more of Sam and Scott that only adds some fun to the story. There are also some secrets revealed that will quite shock you, so be prepared :)
If I have to summarise, I would just say that this is a must read book with a suspenseful story that will keep you on your toes most of the time. And to add to the already great story, you have the incredible romantic story between Robert and Brooke, and of course their friends and family :) So hurry up and pick yourself a copy :)
