The Tate Brothers were once orphans and they have been raised to do one thing only: protect what is theirs.
As a trained sniper and Navy SEAL, Lucas Tate found the courage to distance himself from the wealthy, wicked patriarch who adopted him. Instead, he’s devoted his life to the elite band of brothers from his unit. So when the widow of one of his former comrades finds herself in apparent danger, Lucas makes it his job to protect her against all enemies. . .and not let her out of his sights.
Grace Riley feels overwhelmed by Lucas's presence, but the cold-eyed marksman will do anything to keep her safe. Soon the special attention he pays her becomes a wild romantic distraction―one that troubles Grace, since Lucas was so close to her deceased husband. Still, how can she resist Lucas’s intense, ice-blue stare? All she knows is that a life without strong, passionate Lucas is one not worth living. Can Lucas can find a way to honor his former brother-in-arms by saving Grace. . .and loving her, too?
The second Tate Brothers book is an intense and passionate read that kept me glued to the pages from beginning to end. Lucas and Grace are solid, compelling characters that both have some emotional issues that has them shying away from love but they can’t help exploring the chemistry that burns strong and hot between them. Readers can easily relate to both characters and can’t help becoming caught up in their story as Lucas fights to protect Grace.
The plot is complex, faced paced and multi-layered as it also includes an enemy that seems to have it out for all of the Tate Brothers as well as the bad guys that are after Grace which makes the story full of adrenaline pumping suspense that keeps readers on the edge of their seats as bad guys, surprising twists and emotional turmoil fill the pages.
This is the first book in this series that I have read and I had no trouble picking up on the overall plot that involves all three brothers, so the books can be read out of order. While this is the first book in this series it is not the first book by Jackie Ashenden, so I wasn’t surprised that I really enjoyed reading The Wicked Billionaire and of course I am going to have to go back and read The Dangerous Billionaire while I am waiting for The Undercover Billionaire to come out.
#3 The Undercover Billionaire is due to be released March 27, 2018.
