Book six of Private Protectors

Jackson Lynx always has a plan. He wouldn't be Vice President at Taylor Security if he wasn't steady, smart and reliable. But as capable as he is, he's not perfect. Approaching the one-year anniversary of kicking his prescription-drug habit, the last thing Lynx needs is temptation. Celibacy is part of his recovery plan. But then Jillian Murdoch asks for his help…

Jillian loves her job—managing pharmaceutical distribution—and she's suspicious when an unscheduled delivery shows up late on a Friday night. Then someone breaks into her home and, terrified, she asks Lynx to install a security system. Grateful for his help, she's wary of her attraction to him… She recognizes the Serenity Prayer on his mirror and can't get involved with an addict.

But when they uncover dangerous secrets they'll have to trust one another. Their lives, and their hearts, depend on it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Fantastic Private Protectors Story! 10. Juni 2013
Von Amy (So Many Reads) - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Opposing Forces is another adventure driven by Adrienne Giordano in her Private Protectors series. In this story we are introduced to Jackson Lynx and Jillian Murdoch. As with the other books in the series, Adrienne has come up with a fantastic plot with plenty of mystery, suspense, and romance to engage you from the beginning and keep you reading until you smile and sigh at the last page when all is said and done.

Jack has decided to switch jobs from the State Department to work for Taylor Security. We get a glimpse of Jack in Man Law as Vic Andrews' go-to guy at State. I wasn't sure I was able to trust him back then, but obviously we can all rest assured knowing Jack is one of the good guys. Jack is the man with the plan. He doesn't fly off the handle or operate by the seat of his pants. I have a feeling he and Gavin from Negotiating Point get along well. Jack has a plan for his life and in that plan, it does not include starting any relationships until his one year of addiction recovery is up. Too bad he has been eyeing Jillian from his Sunday morning yoga class for the past three months and now she has come to him for help. He has a problem saying no to people in need.

Jillian is used to being on her own. She likes to keep people at arms length so they don't get close enough to disappoint her. All she has ever known is disappointment growing up. Jillian works hard and strives for perfection and approval, especially in her job in pharmaceutical distribution. Unfortunately she is in the wrong place at the wrong time and sees a suspicious shipment of drugs. Things at work take a turn for the worse and are never the same after that.

Jack and Jillian have flaws that a reader can relate to, even if they have not been in the same situation as the characters. Adrienne does such a good job of describing Jack and Jillian's feelings that you really understand them. She also does a great job of research for her books. Addiction recovery and the pharmaceutical industry are both things I am not familiar with, but by the end of the book I had a greater appreciation for both. I love when a book can both entertain and educate me!

Because of the more serious tone in Opposing Forces (due to Jack's seriousness), I enjoyed the comedic relief that only Vic can bring. Janet Fink, another employee at Taylor Security had me laughing as well. They both need a better brain to mouth filter. I found it funny that Vic was shocked that Jillian was not intimidated by him. One of my favorite quotes from Jillian was when Jack and Vic were letting their egos get the best of them in a situation in which they were under a time crunch. Jillian yells at them, "What is wrong with you two? Forget the pissing match and open the damned safe." It sums her up very well.

The build up of the the romance in the story is perfect. It is very believable and fits the characters very well. Adrienne writes intimate scenes perfectly for romantic suspense - giving way just enough to use your imagination but not too many details. If you enjoy romantic suspense with a solid plot, relatable characters, humorous banter, and a great balance between the romance and edge-of-your seat action, you need to read Opposing Forces.

Adrienne Giordano has done it again! The sixth book in The Protector Series, Opposing Forces is a fantastic read !

Adrienne Giordano is a very gifted writer. Not only does she write a thrilling romantic suspense, a steamy hot romance, she creates memorable characters with loads of personality. Her characters and dialogue are creative, snarky, smart mouthed, and sensual. Her plots are creative and keep the reader sitting on the edge of their seats. Add the former character's from Taylor Security Agency to the mix and you are in for high octane read.

Opposing Forces is Jackson Lynx and Jillian Murdoch's story. Jackson is still in his one year recovery program for addiction to perscription drugs. He has a plan and goal. He cannot let anything get in his way to his one year anniversary mark. That means getting rid of the stress in his life , celibacy,and any temptation. He is almost there....six more days....until Jillian Murdoch approaches him for help. She is a temptation.....

Jillian Murdoch works for a pharmaceutical distributing company. Her job is to keep track of all deliveries and distribution. When an unscheduled delivery shows up on a Friday night she becomes suspicous. After witnessing this delivery frightening things start happening. Her home is broken into while she is asleep and her camera is stolen. She has been locked out of the company's computer network, moved to an isolated office, and basically shut out of her job. She is determined to find the answers. She approaches Jackson Lynx for help. And Jackson being the good guy with the boy scout complex agrees to help. What has Jillian got herself super sexy hot guy, hot guy who has an addiction problem, dangerous job, scary boss, and life threats. As the danger escalates so does the chemistry between her and Jackson. Can she deal with both? Can she deal with Jackson and his addictions? Can Jackson meet his one year anniversary and be free? Can he do it without breaking his celibacy? Can Jillian accept all that he is, good and bad. Can they catch the bad guys so that Jillian can make that choice?

I never miss a book by Adrienne Giordano. I've been a loyal reader of the Private Protector Series so, for me, this book was not to be missed. I read it in half a day. At 255 pages, I flew through the chapters racing to the end. I liked both Jackson and Jillian. The only problem with reading this book is that now I have to wait for the next one!!

Rating: 4/5 Stars

I received an Advanced Review Copy (ARC) of Giordano's OPPOSING FORCES. First things first, I can't believe I didn't know about this author/series until now! I haven't read much romantic suspense that didn't involve supernaturals as yet, and I'm so glad I had the chance to read this book. It was a great introduction to this genre.

Jillian Murdoch happily works in pharmaceutical distribution. She works hard, and she's careful - a go-getter.

Jackson Lynx is VP of Taylor Security, and he's a recovering addict. Ever the 'Boy Scout', he always has a plan. His current plan is to stay out of trouble and away from temptation, including women. He has been eyeing Jillian for months, and there's only a few weeks left until his one year of sobriety anniversary... no problem, right?

Wrong. One evening, Jillian returns to her office to pick up her forgotten camera and witnesses a strange, late-night delivery. Shortly afterwards, someone breaks into her place and steals very specific items. That weekend, after their shared yoga class, Jillian approaches Jackson for help with a home security system. This one seemingly simple request starts an avalanche of events and emotions. These two try to ignore the chemistry between them at first, but as they start to uncover something big beneath the day-to-day operations at Jillian's office, they find comfort in being near one another.

Lynx can't get himself together. He can't figure out if this is the one time that it's okay not to stick to the plan, or if he needs to walk away. But as Jillian gets herself in deeper with what's going on at work, things get more dangerous. He needs to keep her close, keep her safe.

Jillian knows that Lynx is a recovering addict, and she has some addiction-related baggage. She's incredibly drawn to him, superhero complex and all, but she just can't get involved with an addict. She can't face that disappointment. But that smile...

At one point I had to put the book down to get some sleep and I left it in an awkward place. I thought I was going to be going back to the introduction of a second story line at a pretty high point in the first, and I was worried about it. I was loving the story and the character development and I was nervous that this second story was going to be too much and take away from the real "meat and potatoes" of Jackson and Jillian. Luckily, the worry was all for naught. It simply picked up with Jackson's new crisis having been averted, and dove right back in to the original plot line. The only problem I had with the book was that this particular thing left me hanging. I don't feel like this 'flash in the pan' crisis added to the story, and not knowing what happened kind of felt like a loose thread. Maybe if it hadn't felt like such a huge deal at the time, the lack of details wouldn't have bothered me.

I am kicking myself for not having read the other books in this series. The story is fast paced, and the action and suspense aren't the only elements that will leave you on the edge of your seat. The relationship development between Jackson and Jillian is not only intense and heated, but it's believable. They both have their hang-ups and learn quickly how to push each others buttons. They go back and forth between being cautious and being passionate.

Von Brenda Gayle Massey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I received an ARC of Opposing Forces (Private Protectors #6)

This is the first book in the Private Protectors series I have read and I immediately went and bought the first 5. I was concerned that picking up a book in a series would cause a lot of confusion but it did not.

Opposing Forces is about Jackson Lynx. A former officer in the military and then worked for the Secretary of State until a prescription drug habit changed his life. He moved to Chicago and became the Vice President of Taylor Security and has focused on almost nothing but work, and his recovery.
He however has found his weakness. Jillian Murdoch is in Lynx's yoga class and turns to him for help after a break in at her home. They both slowly start to uncover something going on at her pharmaceutical distribution job.

I had not read any suspense romance novels prior to Opposing Forces and I am now kicking myself for not having tried new things. This story was fast paced and kept my interest the entire time. You never knew what to expect around every curve and goodness what a hot romance. Throughout the story I become so invested in Lynx and Jillian. Would they ever come to terms with their growing feelings for each other? Would Lynx maintain such a almost stick in the mud mentality about his recovery even with his friends pushing him our of his comfort zone? Most of all would Lynx be able to keep Jillian safe?

There were so many layers to this story that I felt like I was on an adrenaline high while reading. I don't think I put it down unless I actually had to.

If you enjoy a little mystery, suspense, romance and a very well told story make sure you read this.
