On the brink of divorce, he’d play dirty for a second chance.

Levi James is a complicated man.
A teddy bear to his girls.
A bossy lover in the bedroom.
And an elite bodyguard to the stars.
So when another man tries to get between him and his estranged wife,
complicated doesn’t even begin to cut it.

Kelly James doesn’t want complicated.
Proving she can move on from her soon-to-be-ex-husband seems like a brilliant idea.
Until someone close to her goes missing, and the police tag Levi as suspect number one.
When her mafia relations come into question, complicated becomes deadly.

* A standalone, marriage-in-trouble romance with HEA. Mature audience only, 18+.

Thrilling action and gripping suspense alongside a touching family tale!

That’s right, this book has everything. Good guys in the form of former Navy SEALs, bad guys in the form of the Russian Mafia, and a realistic family drama with an over-the-top jealous and possessive husband (but she likes it like that LOL).

This is the fifth book in the series. I have not read the others, but I didn’t really feel I was missing anything. I could sort of tell which characters had already had their own happily-ever-afters. I’ll definitely be going back to read the other books to see what happened before, since I enjoyed this book so much. I’ve read several books by this author in the past, so I knew this book would stand alone regardless and have a HEA. I could tell the author really cared about the accuracy of representing the various government agencies she discussed and using certain words. I always feel smarter after reading one of her books.

If you love Mary Burton books but with maybe a little more steam, this author is for you!
