Review & Giveaway: BREAKING HER RULES by Katie Reus

Update – Congratulations to Olga, the winner of BREAKING HER RULES! Thank you to everyone who participated!

I am a big fan of Katie Reus‘ Red Stone Security series, and Breaking Her Rules is one of my favorites.  Katie is giving away a digital copy of Breaking Her Rules to one lucky reader so don’t leave before commenting below!

Official Summary:

Iris Tarango is a small-town girl from the wrong side of the tracks; she’s also a decorated former Marine who fought hard to become one of Red Stone Security’s most respected agents. But her perfectly ordered life is turned upside down when she’s assigned to guard the sexy, dominating tycoon she shares a secret history with. The instant Iris walks back into the billionaire’s diamond-studded orbit, the wild attraction flares between them…and her reputation, objectivity, and heart are in trouble.

After an attempt on his life, business magnate Wyatt Christiansen calls in major favors to hire Iris as his bodyguard. He knows she’s the best, though he has another motive too. He sees this as his final chance to win her heart. But when danger spins out of control, all Wyatt can think of is getting Iris out of harm’s way—even if it means losing her love in the end.

Unfortunately, the killer seems to know their every move. If Wyatt and Iris don’t figure out who put out the hit, they’ll lose more than their chance at happiness together.

So Many Reads Review

The Red Stone Security series is awesome. I know that when I read them I will get lots of action, danger, passion and love. I will get to watch the guys and gals of Red Stone support each other like a close knit family. I will also get to read great dialogue with some playful banter between some of them.  Of the six books in the Red Stone Security series, Breaking Her Rules is one of my favorite. It is fun to read them in order, but you really don’t need to as each story stands alone.

In Breaking Her Rules, we get to meet the first female agent of Red Stone, Iris. She is an awesome woman who demands respect from her team by working hard and getting the job done – not by thinking she deserves special treatment because she is a woman. She is down to earth and low maintenance. We also get to meet Wyatt, who is a very wealthy businessman and Iris’s best friend since they were about 10 years old. Both of them were Marines, are quite strong, honorable, and can take care of themselves. So when a hit is put out on Wyatt, and he calls Red Stone for extra security, Iris knows he is really concerned. Wyatt pulls some strings to have Iris lead the team even though a secret in their past could get in the way.

I was a little worried that Wyatt would not be as “alpha” as I have come to like in Katie’s books because Iris was such a strong woman and the one hired to provide security for Wyatt. Boy was I surprised! Two main characters that can kick a little butt?  Yes, please. We also get to see some strong emotions between these two. I totally sided with Wyatt in this book and was glad he didn’t give up on Iris. As for the other characters, it is always nice to see some of the guys and gals from the other books make an appearance. I really, really liked Jay and Ellie in this story and while I would love to see them in another book I don’t think their stories would take them back to Red Stone.

The writing in Breaking Her Rules is so smooth even when there are a lot of details that need to be included such as in the action scenes.  I was able to keep up because Katie provides such great descriptions and I actually felt the action and emotions along with the characters. When she writes the passionate scenes Katie knows exactly how much detail to include and how much to leave to the reader’s imagination. If you are looking for a romantic suspense book that grips you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go until the end, I recommend Breaking Her Rules.

  1. It would really depend on where on the west coast. There is no way I’d go to CA but I would go to WA or OR.

  2. I not only moved across country, I moved to an entirely DIFFERENT country! Can’t wait to read this book!

  3. As my husband was in the British Army i lived in a different country for 11 years, id have gone with him anywhere. I was very lucky to have family that loved to travel

  4. My husband works in Florida and we live in Ohio. We’ve done this several times before. I have a good job but he was out of work and needed a job. I ont want to live in Florida so we will go back and forth for now.

  5. I honestly am not sure if I would. I guess it’s one of those I’ll know what to do when it happens situations.

  6. Maybe, but I would have to be definitely in love with the person before making that huge commitment. I would also need to know where we were moving and if I would have a job too.

  7. Thanks everyone for stopping by my blog for Katie’s giveaway! I really enjoyed reading all your answers. I am lucky that I didn’t have to move across country to be with my husband – just an hour away from my home town. That could be a tough choice!
