Guest Review: Love in Spades (Four Kings Security #1) by Charlie Cochet

When the cards are stacked against you, the Kings will even the odds.

Ex-Special Forces soldier Anston “Ace” Sharpe is fighting a different battle these days—one involving the world of private security across the state of Florida. As part owner of Four Kings Security, Ace and his fellow Kings tackle everything from armed transport and investigations to cyber intelligence and executive protection. Cocky, fearless, and brash, Ace isn’t afraid to take risks.

After years of working alongside his father, Colton Connolly is ready to take the helm at Connolly Maritime, but his father’s retirement is put on hold when Colton begins receiving death threats. If that isn’t bad enough, his father signs a contract with Four Kings Security to provide Colton with round-the-clock protection, despite his adamant refusal. Colton’s life has been turned upside down, the last thing he needs is a shadow, especially in the form of infuriating, sexy-as-sin Ace Sharpe, who seems to be on a mission to drive Colton mad.

Sparks fly the moment Colton and Ace meet on a sultry night club dance floor. But getting involved with a client, even one as fiery and beautiful as Colton Connolly, is a line Ace is unwilling to cross. Colton might be attracted to Ace, but he’d been burned before. He might be willing to put his life in Ace’s hands, but not his heart.

As the Florida nights heat up, so does their passion, and Ace and Colton are faced with a difficult choice—take the plunge and risk it all, or play it safe and walk away?

If Ace can keep a deadly threat from robbing Colton of a future….

Reviewer: Shee Reader

Ace is in private security. Rule one is do NOT get involved with the client. He knows this. He tries so very hard (snort) to keep away from Colton, but resistance is futile! Colton is attracted to Ace from their first meeting, and is furious with his father for arranging security for him as soon as he finds out! Colton is a spitfire, and just what Ace needs. There are bad guys a plenty in this elaborate tale, and trying to keep a high profile and wealthy man safe in the midst of complex social events is a real challenge for the kings, but one they are uniquely skilled for.

I loved the relationships between all the Kings. There is Ace’s cousin Lucky and the other surviving special forces team members. I liked Kingston (King) the boss a whole lot as he sought to lead his men from their tragic service in the military to their top of the pile security company. I cannot wait for his story in particular. The end of this book does set up rather nicely for the next story about Red and Colton’s friend Laz, which should be amazing!

The book had plenty of sexy times, suspense and threat, it is glamorous and exciting whilst still telling a love story.

This book is full of larger than life characters, and I can’t wait to see the other ‘Kings’ and maybe even the supporting characters (Frank and Joshua?) meet their matches!
