He’s the security she’s always needed.Since she moved to Miami, Raegan Taylor has desired Ford Burke–a sexy and rugged cop. He’s everything she’s ever wanted. Unfortunately for Raegan, Ford’s kept his distance. But when a night out goes extremely wrong, his protective instincts kick into high gear, and he finds himself fighting for her in more ways than one.Secret Obsession is the twelfth book in the Red Stone Security series and it offers not one but two parallel romances. The main focus, though, are Raegan Taylor, Harrison, Grant and Porter’s cousin and sexy cop, Ford Burke.
She’s exactly what he was trying to avoid.Once Raegan and Ford grow closer, the harder they start to fall for each other. But Ford’s past stirs up feelings he just can’t control, threatening to destroy everything they’ve worked for. And when he screws up, he may lose more than just his one shot with her.
And now someone’s ready to ruin it all.Someone wants Raegan—and if he can’t have her—nobody can. He’s waiting. He’s watching. He’s lurking. Ready to strike. He’ll make her his. He’ll take down anyone who gets in his way—even a cop.
Ford cannot believe that the one woman whom he desires is the Caldwell’s cousin. As if that wasn’t enough, she’s a decade younger than him and the fact that he can’t seem to control himself around her, makes Ford believe that Raegan is a dream that he is never going to enjoy.
Raegan may be the Caldwell’s cousin but she won’t let them control her life. Working at RSS with Athena is something she didn’t expect to be doing but she has come to love her job. She likes everyone at RSS and her job offers her more than she would ever need. But something is missing and she knows exactly what, Ford. Even though the sexy cop won’t admit his feelings, his actions say a lot. So, when Ford saves her from a night gone wrong, Raegan knows it’s a now or never opportunity.
Secret obsession was amazing! I really liked Ford and Reagan as a couple. I loved the fact that we got to see and hear from couples from the previous books in the series and I especially loved the scenes with Mara and Harrison (they still remain my fav couple). We also get to meet Raegan’s friends, Ruby and Dominique. This book has two romances and the other, while parallel, is a bit short-ish but still really great! We got to see Ruby and Montez get together and how their relationship developed and everything and it was so cute!
As for Dominique, worry not. Katie recently announced that she’s getting her own story with a character we briefly meet here. Her book, Love Thy Enemy, will be out early June, so make sure to read this one before the next one comes out!
Another great read by Katie Reus!
