Summary

She’s undercover in a dangerous motorcycle club, and her unwanted protector is the city’s most lethal man.

Police Detective Brynn Sullivan is dedicated to her job and living up to the memory of her cop father. She’s out to prove herself on her biggest case yet - stopping a dangerous drug from flooding the streets of San Francisco. She needs to go undercover with the city’s wildest, most dangerous motorcycle club, and that means using any contact she can to get in there. 

Even the dark, powerful ex-military man who rules the city’s streets from the shadows: Vander Norcross. 

After years fighting for his country as commander of a covert Ghost Ops team, Vander Norcross has built Norcross Security into a thriving business to keep his family and friends safe. He’s a power broker in San Francisco, with his finger on the pulse of what’s happening - both legal and not so legal. When his friend asks a favor putting a detective - a female one - undercover with the Iron Wanderers MC, Vander is not on board. 

It goes against every protective instinct he has, but Brynn proves to be tenacious, annoying, smart, and far too tempting. 

Brynn and Vander strike enough sparks to start an inferno, but when dangerous players up the stakes, they find themselves with a bounty on their heads. On the run with only each other to depend on, Brynn discovers she has an even bigger battle on her hands - capturing the heart of a man who thinks he’s too dangerous to ever fall in love.

Exciting!

What a great story. I was pulled in from the start, loving hhe sparks that ignited between Vander and Bryn. His closed off heart had just met a najor challenge. And Bryn! Strong, determined, self confident and effective, she is the woman we'd all like to be, or at least have in our corner! With bikers and threats to deal with the story barrels along at a very satisfying pace. As for Twddy Hamilton and Stella Bloom, they aced the narration! Both are so skilled, bringing nuanced expression to their acting
, brining the characters and the tale to life. Fabulous! Is it Camden next? 🤔 💖💖💖💖💖

Exciting and fun

I first read the ebook but had to relive this excellent story through the audiobook because, well. Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton narrate!)

Since the beginning of the series, I have been waiting (impatiently) for Vander's story! And it was a great one. I loved that he was paired up with Brynn, a police detective (and cousin to Hunt, the police contact for Norcross). She was strong, smart and oh so tough, a fantastic counterpoint to Vander, who is also strong, smart and a little scary but that made watching him fall for Brynn all that much more satisfying. The underlying arc is that an MC is getting out of control and a drug is becoming more and more accessible, leading to deaths. Brynn needs to go undercover and Vander has contacts that can help her do so. But he can't force himself to not protect her. Lots of steaminess, oh so much tension and a heck of a lot of action and I could not put this book down

And then, to hear Teddy Hamilton's growly voice and Stella Bloom's beautifully smooth voice play out the story and I could not have enjoyed my second reading of this story more. They were perfect narrators for this exciting, steamy and so much fun story!!

This book has risen to my favorite.

I absolutely feel in love with the characters in this series. I have been unable to find another author that can compete. I compare all books to this one. I cannot wait for the next release!! I would give this 10 stars if able.

This is a great match!

Vander Norcross has always come across as ‘standoffish’…turns out that he just hadn’t met a woman that intrigued him. Until he meets Brynn…the detective is about to go undercover in a motorcycle gang to find out who’s responsible for distributing a dangerous street drug. Sparks fly as the pair team up to bring down the drug dealer…lots of sparks! Whew! Great chemistry and great story.

Vander!

After enjoying all the other Norcross family members finding their other half, we finally get to see who can match up to Vander Norcross.

Enter Brynn Sullivan, undercover detective. Bad@!$ in her own right, she is strong enough not to cower before Vander, giving him back as much as he gives her.

Love the chemistry and push/ pull between these two as they struggle to take down bad guys, fight their attraction, and end up with a mighty satisfying ending.

Vander's story!!

This is the sixth book in the amazing Norcross Security series, a Romantic Suspense. Vander and Brynn's story is action packed, and suspenseful, filled with danger, and twists and turns. Brynn, a police detective, is strong, reckless, impulsive, and determined. Vander, owner of the Norcross Security agency, is handsome, and very protective. The supporting characters are great. I liked the entertaining storyline. Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it! I love this series!

Vander’s story is here!

Vander Norcross has demons from his past that have made serious relationships impossible for him to even think about. He is fiercely protective of anyone that he cares about, but somehow he has deemed himself as unlovable because of the things he has had to do in the past. He doesn’t want to be vulnerable to those who wish to hurt him or retaliate against him, and loving a woman would make him vulnerable. As a result, his protective nature puts him at odds with Detective Brynn Sullivan, who has made it her mission to infiltrate a biker gang. The bikers are providing tainted drugs to the people of San Francisco, and young people are dying. Vander’s job is to get her access to that gang, and he is having a hard time accepting her mission. He does what he can to make sure she is protected, and there are a few times when he arrives with impeccable timing, but Brynn is pretty tough as well. She can take care of herself, and she sees within Vander and sees a lovable man. But she wants a partner who respects her abilities and skills, and Vander is so used to taking care of others, that it sometimes causes tension.

There is a good form of tension in this book. It keeps readers invested in the outcome, but it isn’t so tense that readers need to walk away to breathe. There is a mystery to be solved—namely, which gang member is responsible for importing the tainted drugs—and there are multiple challenges to be faced, but it all adds up to a fast-paced story that grabs readers from the start. It’s fun, it’s fast-paced, and it’s awkward at times, but Brynn is the perfect match for Vander in so many ways. And Vander is perfect for Brynn as well, because she is strong enough to handle him in all the best ways!

These two narrators do an excellent job of bringing this story to life. Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton are consistent in the way they portray each of the protagonists. The recording quality is superior and the narrators are able to make different characters sound like they actually are different characters. This story flows beautifully, and the narrators are a big part of that. Well done!
