Four Kings Security by Charlie Cochet




Love in Spades (Four Kings Security, Book 1) by Charlie Cochet
Narrated by Greg Bourdreaux

When the cards are stacked against you, the Kings will even the odds.

Ex-Special Forces soldier Anston “Ace” Sharpe is fighting a different battle these days—one involving the world of private security across the state of Florida. As part owner of Four Kings Security, Ace and his fellow Kings tackle everything from armed transport and investigations to cyber intelligence and executive protection. Cocky, fearless, and brash, Ace isn’t afraid to take risks.

After years of working alongside his father, Colton Connolly is ready to take the helm at Connolly Maritime, but his father’s retirement is put on hold when Colton begins receiving death threats. If that isn’t bad enough, his father signs a contract with Four Kings Security to provide Colton with round-the-clock protection, despite his adamant refusal. Colton’s life has been turned upside down, the last thing he needs is a shadow, especially in the form of infuriating, sexy-as-sin Ace Sharpe, who seems to be on a mission to drive Colton mad.

Sparks fly the moment Colton and Ace meet on a sultry night club dance floor. But getting involved with a client, even one as fiery and beautiful as Colton Connolly, is a line Ace is unwilling to cross. Colton might be attracted to Ace, but he’d been burned before. He might be willing to put his life in Ace’s hands, but not his heart.

As the Florida nights heat up, so does their passion, and Ace and Colton are faced with a difficult choice—take the plunge and risk it all, or play it safe and walk away?

If Ace can keep a deadly threat from robbing Colton of a future….

This book has everything! Love, action, adventure, humor and of course some hot men. A great book and entertaining read.

I love this book and is often a go-to re-read for me. I love the humor in this book and am often caught laugh out loud in public places!

This book is the first installment from Charlie’s Four Kings Security and follows Colton Connelly and Anston “Ace” Sharpe as they fight their obvious attraction and passion for each other while trying to keep Colton safe from the current threats against him. This book is thrilling and suspenseful and on the first read, I didn’t guess who was behind the threats to Colton and on re-reads, I still find the banter between Colton and Ace hilarious. I love all the Kings and look forward to the other books in the series.

Greg’s narration of this story is excellent and I love when a narrator is so good that they can make you think there are multiple people narrating instead of just one person. I also love his voice for Lucky and look forward to Lucky’s story and narration.

All in all a truly great book and look forward to the rest in the series!

Be Still My Heart (Four Kings Security, Book 2) by Charlie Cochet 
Narrated by Greg Boudreaux

When the cards are stacked against you, the Kings will even the odds.

Former Special Forces medical sergeant Russell “Red” McKinley knows a thing or two about wounds, like the fact some can take a lifetime to heal; if they heal at all. The scars Red carries run deep, and living with PTSD often means battling the memories of his past. Injuries he received while working an executive protection case with fellow Kings and co-owners of Four Kings Security have once again forced past heartaches to the surface, but Red is determined not to let it derail his blossoming romance with sweet and sexy fashion photographer Lazarus Galanos.

Laz can’t deny there’s something special developing between him and Red, but Laz has wounds of his own. He’s hesitant to jump into a new relationship after his recent explosive breakup. Experience has taught Laz to doubt his judgment when it comes to men. Guys who seem too good to be true usually are, and no one appears more perfect than Red.  

When an attempt is made on Laz’s life, Red is determined to keep him safe. Laz may not be a client, and Red is still off duty, but Laz is one of their own, and nothing means more to the Kings than family. While an investigation is underway, Red and Laz are growing closer, but can they find a way to help each other heal and take a chance on love, or will their fears and insecurities cost them more than their future together?

Oh my, what a ride! Be still my heart indeed!

I loved the first book in this series and the second did not disappoint! This book follows on from the first and I’d recommend reading them in order. Red and Laz are drawn together in book 1 and in this book they are explosive. Laz’s life is threatened, therefore,  the Kings get involved. Chaos, drama, and some humor is thrown in and you have a compelling story of the “King of Hearts” finding love.

I love Laz’s sass and Red’s big heart, they are a wonderful couple. Charlie writes such wonderful, damaged but totally swoon-worthy characters and these two are no exception. A highly recommend series and I look forward to Book 3, Join the Club to see what happens next with Lucky and Mason as I know it’s going to be explosive.

Join the Club (Kings Security, Book 3) by Charlie Cochet 
Narration by Greg Boudreaux

Eduardo “Lucky” Morales is a fighter, from his childhood days in Cuba to his time as a Special Forces Green Beret. Scarred by the wars of his past, Lucky has learned nothing lasts forever. Guarding his heart is second nature, and getting emotionally involved is not an option. As co-owner of Four Kings Security, Lucky works hard alongside his former brothers-in-arms and fellow Kings, but he also plays hard. Flirting with sexy Texas cowboy and detective, Mason Cooper, is too much fun to resist until Mason turns the tables on him.

Mason Cooper may not be a soldier, but he’s fought his share of battles as an openly gay cop and now a detective for Major Crimes. Mason has no idea when things changed between him and Lucky, but the gorgeous, fiery Cuban has turned his world upside down. When a mistake leads to his suspension from the force, Mason turns to the least likely person for help: Ward Kingston.

Determined to keep Mason at arms’ length, Lucky is surprised to find the man at Four Kings Security. The Florida nights might be getting cooler, but the heat between Lucky and Mason burns hotter with every passing moment. Working private security can be dangerous and unpredictable, but so can falling in love.

Damn explosive! So hot and just fantastic!! 

I love this series!!!! Lucky is one of my favorite characters and I love his passion and selflessness. Mason and Lucky have been flirting and tip-toeing around get other for a while (as mentioned in the previous book, Be Still My Heart (Red’s Story)). Their story continues here and their chemistry is explosive!!! They bait each other and annoy each other until the tension and lust explodes, and damn its HOT!

This story is full of suspense, sex, and security! While not as thrilling as book one or dramatic as book 2 it is still a tension-filled awesome read. There is a lot of will they or won’t they that finally turns into I will for you!

Both Mason and Lucky are guarded in their own way and damaged by their pasts. It’s a wonderful moment when they realize they are better together and push past their boundaries to be together. The Four Kings family welcomes Mason with open arms and hearts. I love Charlie’s writing and look forward to many more books in this series. 

Additional Note: I loved the epilogue that gives us a solid glimpse into the stern, stoic Ward Kingston. I can’t wait for his story in the next book!!!!

Diamond in the Rough (Kings Security, Book 4) by Charlie Cochet 
Narration by Greg Boudreaux

When the cards are stacked against you, the Kings will even the odds.

For Ward “King” Kingston the role of protector, forged by fire and tragedy, is one he takes seriously. When King is asked to safeguard the son of a four-star general and friend, he is pulled back into the world of government black ops on a mission that raises painful memories from his past. The moment King meets Leo, amid the chaos of a lockdown at a secret black site, it’s clear he’s never faced a challenge like this – one that will test his unwavering sense of control.

Leopold de Loughrey is a misunderstood genius whose anxiety and insecurities are sent into overdrive when he is forcefully recruited to work on a top-secret project. Terrified of ‘what’ his role as “invaluable asset” means, Leo’s stress leads to disappearances, arguments, and blowups that threaten the project and Leo’s future. King’s arrival is a calm in the storm for Leo and his frenetic thoughts.

King and Leo couldn’t be more different, yet as they navigate the dangers of a secret multi-agency operation and face unknown threats, their differences could be what saves them. Neither man believes a happily ever after is in the cards, but their hearts might just prove them wrong…if they can survive a deadly betrayal.

O.M.G. King and Leo are FANTASTIC!!

I can’t praise this book enough!!! We finally get to learn all about King and get to know all that is under that gruff exterior! Now Leo…My new favorite book character ever!!! Leo is wicked smart, unknowingly sassy, adorkably sweet and just plain loveable. I love his brain, it that weird LOL. His quirks, sass, and smarts make for an incredible and hilarious read. I will admit to laughing out loud, in public!

King’s surprising connection to Leo is so heartwarming (and somewhat deeper and more unique than originally thought) and we are able to learn more about what all the Kings went through and even a little of why. This is a fantastic ‘conclusion’ to the quartet. Charlie definitely saved the best for last!

This book is the funniest of the lot and has all your favorite characters and couples I just loved the way everyone accepted Leo into the family. He is just so wonderful and I loved that he was never scared of King and really kept King on his toes. The story includes the same awesome action and thrill you come to expect of Ms. Cochet and I loved King’s fierce protectiveness out there on full display. 

If you haven’t read this series YOU NEED TOO. I can’t recommend them all enough but King and Leo are definitely my new favs!!!
