Rating: 5 Stars

Official Blurb:


I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man. 

But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again. 

All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have. 

So I did the only thing I know how to do. 
I run. 
But he just won’t let me go. 


The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out. 

To make her mine. 

She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her. 
She’s it for me and she knows it. 
She’s just too scared to admit it. 

No cliffhanger, HEA, inter-connected standalones. This book is intended for a mature reading.

Dee… you broke my heart.  After binge reading the first 2 books of the series, I finally reached the book that broke me.  It’s not that Axel or Cage didn’t come with some tear jerking moments because honestly, they did, but it was Dee’s back story that left me rattled and a hollowed out shell of a binge reader.  The secrets she kept buried in the dark while she tried to save Izzy flabbergasted me. I’ve never been much of an emotional reader and very rarely find myself crying at fictional character’s fictional lives, but I Harper Sloan broke the emotional dam and the flood gates opened.  Out of the 3 men I’ve read so far of the Corps Security series, Beck is the most caring, most emotionally involved man out of them. He was Dee’s rock and redeemer. Dee life struggles only made Beck want to cement their bond even more.  The ending will leave you breathless and ugly crying. I wasn’t even remotely prepared for Harper’s twisted ending.  I’ll even admit that after finishing Beck, I had to step away from this series for a few days to rebound and recoup before continuing.  Harper gutted me and even now, days later, I still feel rocked by it.
