Cover Reveal – CONTROLLED BURN by Marie James

Release Date: February 3

As the mechanic for Blackbridge Security, when I make a mistake things don’t work properly.

Correcting that mistake is the only way to get things operational.

I meet issues in my personal life with the same mindset.

How was I to know the woman I’ve been flirting with at the gym is the same woman I called a noise complaint on?

I got her kicked out of her condo.

My first response: Move in with me.

When she confessed to having three kids, it was too late to back down.

I thought keeping my hands off of her was going to be a problem, but the tiny terrors she brought along with her are extremely effective at solving that problem for me.

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

Review – Sleight of Hand by Marie James

56572329. sy475

Sleight of Hand; Blackbridge Security #7 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Hot, funny, and mixed with tension. BBS continues to amaze me with the mix of characters and great love stories.

This new couple sizzles chemistry, smoking hot fire, but between them neither of them have any experience in the relationship department, not that either of them are looking for anything beyond the sheets. However, the more time they spend together, the more the idea doesn’t lose appeal.

Gaige Ward and Leighton Redmond meet in a bar the night before Leighton is set to meet with Deacon Black for a job interview with Blackbridge Security. Neither Gaige nor Leighton know who the other person is, their interlude is purely for pleasure where they actually give each other false names too. A one night stand that shouldn’t have gone past that night, but the next day sheds a new light to a hot evening, with poor choices.

While Gaige and Leighton burn right off the pages, they both have problems with intimacy. Their back and forth, especially how Gaige initially treated Leighton was unexpected, but I loved the idea of how he originally handled his life and the growth he had throughout the story was excellent.

Leighton held back more throughout as the story went along, but she doesn’t believe in relationships, at all. Unlike Gaige who grew up with loving parents, Leighton grew up in a toxic environment and believes that all men aren’t able to commit. While she loves that Gaige is excellent at providing multiple O’s she doesn’t see beyond the bedroom for a future.

I love how each book in the Blackbridge world is different, but the entire team is brought together under one roof to work cohesively for one company. I never know what to expect when jumping into a BBS book and it truly makes reading this series exciting. I love returning, if for nothing else, to catch up with Wren and Puff Daddy, they make me giggle every single time.

Synopsis:

Gaige Ward, acquisition expert for Blackbridge Security, obtains things for the team.

As far as your mind can take you is how far he can go.

If it exists, he can get his hands on it.

If he can’t, he’ll find someone who can.

He never fails.

As with all things when growing in popularity, Blackbridge is also taking on scrutiny.

His boss, in an attempt to counter being called misogynistic and discriminatory against women, needs a female with the ability to handle the same tasks his guys can.

Leighton Redmond fits the bill perfectly.

Only, according to her she isn’t for sale, for employment or otherwise.

Gaige loves a challenge but has NEVER had to fight so hard to procure something for his boss.

Maybe next time he’ll think twice before having a one-night stand the day before a very important business meeting.

Blog Tour – Heroic Measures by Marie James

 Release Date: August 3
 

Opposites don’t just attract.

They captivate.

They entice.

They beckon.

As the medic for the Blackbridge Security team, he was just fine hanging out at the office in his spare time.

Jude Morris was…boring.

He didn’t need excitement.

He wasn’t a thrill-seeker.

Then he met a woman who was.

Parker Maxwell, the only woman able to captivate, entice, and beckon him, was his antithesis.

The up to his down.

The light to his dark.

The hot to his cold.

He couldn’t take his eyes off of her.

She didn’t seem to notice him.

It’s going to take heroic measures for this guy to win the girl.

Review – Heroic Measures by Marie James

56572331. sy475

Heroic Measures; Blackbridge Security #6 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 3, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Opposites Attract/Virgin Hero/Contemporary Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wren and Whitney are going to have to share the first place spot with Jude and Parker. I am over the top smitten with the newest Blackbridge couple.

I adore virgin heros when reading. There is something about a shy, inexperienced, possible late bloomer hero that is just fun to read and I don’t get to read it enough. Jude Morris is a conglomeration of several things that brought him to the age of thirty-one…that’s right!! Thirty-one without any experience and he is ripe for experiencing everything at the hands of Parker Maxwell who happens to love a shy, coy man.

Parker is the complete opposite of Jude. She’s bold, knows she looks good, and has zero qualms about seeking a bed partner, and her real kryptonite is a man just like Jude. However, she is not into relationships. Never has been and never plans to be. One amazing night with Jude might change everything and puts Parker into a tailspin, but running is what she does best, the question is will Jude catch her?

These two were fun and super steamy. Jude’s quiet soul draws out Parker’s inner spotlight and together they shine.

Synopsis:

Calculated Risk (Blackbridge Security, #5)
As the fixer for Blackbridge Security, Quinten Lake is the man that comes in and cleans up after people make stupid decisions.

 

Which means he didn’t want to be the one teaching lustful women gun safety.

There were guys on the team better suited for the task.

Get in and get out, that’s his motto, something he lives by not only at work but also in his personal life.

And he could be doing just that if it weren’t for the internet.

But if #BlackbridgeSpecial wasn’t trending online he would’ve never met Hayden Prescott.

He wouldn’t be wondering why she won’t make eye contact with him.

He’s supposed to teach her the skills to protect herself, but his ego is encouraging him to be her means of protection.

She isn’t impressed, and he’s left wondering if she’ll ever open her eyes and finally see him.

Review – Calculated Risk by Marie James

56572335. sy475

Calculated Risk; Blackbridge Security #5 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 11, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Security/Suspense Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold StarsThis image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1368-6.jpg

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

We return to the security world of Blackbridge and all those hot men who make the world a better place.

Calculated Risk is a slow burning romance between Quinten Lake and Hayden Prescott, two very different people when you look at them from the outside. Quinten is a gentle giant of a man who is a problem solver covered in tattoos and a beard. He works with a lot of high profile cases, your hollywood starlets, government screwups, basically he has the patience of a saint when he’s able to come in and clean up all of their mistakes. Where as Hayden is a petite woman with a fiery attitude, but works as an accountant in her nine to five job and normally dates boring intellectuals.

These two most likely would never have met under normal circumstances, if it wasn’t for the home invasion that Hayden was a victim of which in turn caused her best friend to sign her up for a gun safety class at Blackbridge Security. 

Taking back control of her life isn’t easy and honestly, being the victim of anything traumatizing isn’t easy to come back from, however, a large portion of this story revolves around gun safety and taking back part of yourself. As much as I’d like to focus on the part of the story that was lacking around the suspense of why the home invasion happened (this was my tiny ding in my 5 star rating) and then later revolving around more of what was going on in Hayden’s life, I really, really respected everything else. With the way the world is going and everything in the news I truly enjoyed reading this.

I felt a true connection to Hayden and how she approached gun safety class. I’ll be honest, I was walking in her shoes. I felt everything she was, right up to the point of her handling a gun because I’ve never done this, but I could still imagine those same trepidations that she felt. I also respected Quinten immensely. He was patient and caring and very respectful of every woman who was in his class. As much as Quinten originally complained about teaching, he was actually the perfect team member to do it. 

Lastly, my favorite part is always revisiting past characters and of course my favorite among favorites is Wren and Puff Daddy. They are there as well as several other gorgeous team members. I’m also very excited for the next book because we get lots of hints dropped here and it looks to be juicy.

Overall read 4.5 stars

Review – Truth Be Told by Marie James

56129547. sy475

Truth Be Told; Blackbridge Security #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Second-Chance Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I love these guys at Blackbridge Security and always enjoy the love story mixed with an intense story. In Truth Be Told Marie James takes a step away from her suspenseful tale and gives us a story about second chances and learning to forgive after a lifetime of lies and betrayal.

Ignacio Torres broke his girlfriend, Tinley’s, heart when they were in high school. He did it to protect her and to make sure she never came looking for him. When they were seniors in high school he had no future, no way out of the tiny town they lived in and nothing to offer her but a life of poverty. When he returns to his home town after thirteen years he knew he made the right decision when all he sees is broken down buildings, homelessness and a town even more in despair than even he remembers. The first moment he second guesses that decision is when he sees a teenage boy that resembles him walking behind the only woman he ever loved.

Tinley was broken when Ignacio left. He obliterated her heart and tore their relationship to shreds, demeaning and belittling everything they shared. There was no question in her mind that a man who had no desire to care about her would not care about the child they created. Thirteen years passed and time wasn’t easy on her as a single mother, but her stubbornness has never allowed her to quit or give up. Alex, her son, is hers and she loves him and would never take back her time spent with Ignacio even knowing how it all ended. However, when Ignacio shows up on her doorstep she’s angry and scared. She won’t allow him to take away her son and forgiving the man who suddenly appears is going to take time. The idea of some big happy family will never happen because she doesn’t know if she can ever forgive him.

Both Tinley and Ignacio are in a state of stubborn anger towards each other for a lot of the story. So while this is a second chance romance, even more than that it’s a story about forgiveness and really learning how to communicate. These two people have a son, who is in the middle trying to navigate his parents while learning about their new dynamic as well. I like how he processed things as he learned about the history on each of them and in turn really gave his parents things to think about.

Of all the books in the Blackbridge series, this one doesn’t have the suspenseful/action aspect, but the relationship growth between all of the characters made this story just as good and a worthy part of the series.

 

Synopsis:

Lies ruin lives.

Ignacio Torres, the translator for Blackbridge Security, has told his fair share and then some.

He lied more than once to Tinley Holland when they were teens.

Told her he didn’t love her.

Told her he could live without her.

Told her what they shared didn’t mean a thing.

He’s lived with those lies, lived with the loss of her for over a decade.

What he didn’t expect was going home to help with a family matter only to discover Tinley has told the biggest lie of all.

Cover Reveal – Calculated Risk by Marie James

 Release Date: May 11

 

As the fixer for Blackbridge Security, Quinten Lake is the man that comes in and cleans up after people make stupid decisions.

Which means he didn’t want to be the one teaching lustful women gun safety.

There were guys on the team better suited for the task.

Get in and get out, that’s his motto, something he lives by not only at work but also in his personal life.

And he could be doing just that if it weren’t for the internet.

But if #BlackbridgeSpecial wasn’t trending online he would’ve never met Hayden Prescott. 

He wouldn’t be wondering why she won’t make eye contact with him.

He’s supposed to teach her the skills to protect herself, but his ego is encouraging him to be her means of protection.

She isn’t impressed, and he’s left wondering if she’ll ever open her eyes and finally see him.

Contingency Plan; Blackbridge Security #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Marie James

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The sexy men of Blackbridge Security have returned, but this time instead of chasing danger Flynn Coleman, former FBI agent, has been sent to sent to chase a young starlet around NYC.

Flynn is used to undercover operations, investigation, and danger around every corner. What he’s not thrilled about on this new mission is babysitting a twenty year old and basically keeping her locked in her mansion. This is not putting his skills to use, not to mention the strong pull he feels towards her, which he refuses to act upon. He’s been there and lost his career over a woman and he never plans on having that happen again.

Remington Blair has only had people in her life that use her for her fame, her money, or her status. She’s never had anyone, not even her parents, spend time with her just because they want to. When Flynn arrives as her new bodyguard and he shows her a side that she’s never experienced, she decides that the chase is finally worth running for.

These are two people who both have huge trust issues in their past, but who also love the cat and mouse game…it pretty much makes them perfect for each other, if they can learn to trust one another. Remi brings out Flynns growly possessive side, which is super sexy and on the flip side for the first time in Remi’s life she learns how to care for someone else, which is also huge step in taking care of herself.

While Contingency Plan doesn’t have as many suspenseful moments as the predecessor novels it is still a wonderful story with a slow burn that will warm your insides as their story unfolds. Also, like the past Blackbridge novels, it is full of great humor and lots of great looking men to drool over.

As an IT expert and hacker extraordinaire, Wren Nelson is no stranger to discovering all sorts of secrets online.

He’s a warrior…when he’s behind his computer, that is.

And awkward at best in social situations.

His long hours with Blackbridge Security don’t really provide many opportunities to go out and meet people.

So what is he supposed to do when a wrong delivery—a questionably large box of bedroom toys—ends up in his hands instead of its intended target?

Online stalking has always been his go-to to accumulate information on people, but only seeing Whitney through digital displays isn’t enough. Approaching her doesn’t seem like the best plan either.

What he doesn’t know is that this woman is possibly the only one in existence able to give him a run for his money.

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wren and Whitney’s story will make you giggle and get you hot, both things I absolutely love while I’m reading. 5 ★’s just isn’t enough to give this fun and smexy read!

I knew when I originally met Wren I was completely smitten with him, but that word doesn’t even begin to describe how much I tripped and stumbled head over heels in complete love with this intelligent, witty, filthy talking bird owner, and closet freak in the sheets. Wren is the absolute best. A nerdy wet dream who checked all of my boxes and I love every inch of him!!

Wren Nelson is the intelligence\IT\hacker piece of the puzzle to the Blackbridge Security team. He’s the best in business, but someone with his IT skills doesn’t exactly have high quality social skills. Awkward is his middle name and when he does leave his computer his social time is usually spent with his grandmother. So when he becomes infatuated with the other W. Nelson living in his building he’s just a tad shy and the thought of meeting her in person makes him sweat. Wren instead decides to stalk her online and hack into video feed and watch her through security cameras, instead of talk to her face to face. That is until a chance encounter and Puff Daddy’s potty mouth gives him an opening to take a chance.

Whitney Nelson doesn’t get out much, or really ever, she prefers the safe haven of her apartment and loves that everything can be delivered, but one of the few times she’s in the elevator in her apt she runs into a sexy man carrying a filthy talking bird. Call her instantly whipped and then call her surprised when it’s the same man she’s been gaming with and falling for online. When she discovers that he works for a security company and he can help her out of the jam she’s currently found herself in, her shy gamer is just too perfect to be real.

Wren and Whitney are too adorable and also too filthy for words. Yes, two complete opposite sides of the coin which makes them perfect for each other. They both would probably have never met due to their socially awkward and shy personalities, but together they are able to complete each other in ways they never thought were possible. Their darker prolactivities shine when they are with one another and yet they are also sweetly aware of how self conscious they are and aren’t afraid to talk about it.
I seriously can’t tell you how much I love this vulnerability about both of them.

Everyone should have a partner that they can truly be themselves with express their deepest desires, fantasies, wants and needs and still be loved for their less than stellar moments, like tripping over their own feet. Wren is one my favorite book boyfriends!

Can you call someone an enemy if you haven’t seen them for the better part of a decade?

Deacon Black is perfectly content with the status quo—work, sleep, repeat.

Who cares if he’s rigid, structured, and set in his ways?

It’s a job requirement that keeps his men safe and his company’s doors open.

One phone call is all it takes to upend his life and land him right back into a past he has tried to forget.

Revisiting old ghosts is the last thing he needs.

Annalise Grimaldi hit the jackpot with her life—from her trust fund to her best friend, she has it all.

There’s only one person she can think of that can help in a situation like this.

New Release – Hostile Territory by Marie James

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Hostile Territory by Marie James is 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄 and 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐄 with Kindle Unlimited! Don’t miss out on the 𝑯𝑶𝑻 𝑴𝑬𝑵 of the Blackbridge security team!

 

Can you call someone an enemy if you haven’t seen them for the better part of a decade?

Deacon Black is perfectly content with the status quo—work, sleep, repeat.

Who cares if he’s rigid, structured, and set in his ways?

It’s a job requirement that keeps his men safe and his company’s doors open.

One phone call is all it takes to upend his life and land him right back into a past he has tried to forget.

Revisiting old ghosts is the last thing he needs.

Especially when the forced trip down memory lane includes the only woman he never wanted to see again.

Annalise Grimaldi hit the jackpot with her life—from her trust fund to her best friend, she has it all.

But her world comes crashing to a halt when her best friend vanishes— leaving behind an apartment in tatters and more questions than answers.

There’s only one person she can think of that can help in a situation like this.

She hates to make the call, but there isn’t a thing she wouldn’t do to make sure her friend is found.

Even setting aside her hatred for Deacon Black.

Hostile Territory; Blackbridge Security #1

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is the beginning of Blackbridge Security and all the hot men who work there…yum.

Deacon Black was married and burned by his ex years ago. His ex’s best friend, Annalise Grimaldi is collateral damage in that relationship. When Anna needs help the only person she thinks to call is Deacon, even though he isn’t exactly happy to see her name pop up on his phone.

They definitely had more of a hate-hate relationship through most of the book so a lot of their chemistry didn’t immediately pop off of the page, but when Anna was with Deacon’s staff she really made them shine and I am really looking forward to their stories because of those interludes.

While Deacon tried to track down the men and his ex-wife who were hunting her and Anna he was trying hard to not to fall for the woman whom he’d basically overlooked for most of his life. Anna was turning out to be someone he never expected and someone he desperately wanted.

Anna shouldn’t want her best friend’s ex-husband, but she was having a hard time convincing herself why not. He was everything she didn’t remember him being years ago and his helping her now meant the world.

This is just the beginning of some very hot security men and I’m excited to visit again.

(P.S. I really hope Wren is next, he’s so geeky sweet and his interactions with Anna are beyond priceless)

Catch Twenty-Two by Marie James is LIVE and FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Bully romance has never been so good…” Kristie, GR Reviewer

He can’t stand anything about her, but can’t keep his hands off of her.

Frankie

I wasn’t looking for him.

He found me.

With his sexy smirk and irresistible body.

I wanted nothing to do with someone like him.

Judgmental and brooding.

So full of himself.

But now, I’m stuck playing the fool.

Falling for him.

And losing it all.

If only for one night.

ZEKE

Stuffy, rich, entitled.

The kind of girl that gets what she wants.

When she wants it.

And I want nothing to do with her.

Yet, I can’t stay away.

I’m drawn to her kindness and compassion.

Her beauty.

She holds me when the pain won’t subside.

And now, if I can help it, I’m going to hold on to her…

Forever.
