The Ultimate Betrayal by Kat Martin Maximum Security #3 Brandon “Bran” Garrett likes what he sees when Jessie Keegan walks into his place of business and the interest Jessie has in Bran is intense, too. Bran is soon involved with helping Jessie try to clear her father’s name, find out who killed her father while he was in prison, following clues and doing his best to keep Jessie safe. This was a fast-paced, complicated, thrill ride from beginning to end. What I liked: * Jessie: dedicated, intelligent, seeker of truth and not afraid of a bit of trouble. She did have a backstory that had a big impact on her life. She deserves happiness and to find a family to replace the one she lost. * Bran: ex-military, intense, lethal, and capable – in more ways than one. He is a good man who deserves happiness. * The supporting characters – all of them – good men who end up with good women – eventually. * Meeting Bran’s brothers – the relationship between the brothers is strong and they are there for one another * The side story of Ty’s romance * The intensity of the story * The plot, story, and writing * The twists and turns and complexity of the story * The growth Jessie showed in a couple areas of her life * That there were some good men despite the bad ones * The way it all came together in the end. What I did not like: * The reminder that there are evil, ruthless, greedy people in all elements of society – not everyone in places of responsibility are trustworthy. * Knowing that there really are people willing to harm others for reasons I don’t understand Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Definitely Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

This is such a good series!!!! 4.5 stars for The Ultimate Betrayal! It's a fast paced and exciting romantic suspense!! Great story!! Never a dull moment for Brandon and Jessie! From the moment she asks him for help, it's on. Their chemistry is so magnetic and they instantly have such a strong connection. I love all of their interactions and they make a really great team! Amidst the intensity of the situation, they develop a wonderful relationship, something neither thought could be possible. It isn't always easy, but they navigate through it to find their HEA. I enjoyed this 3rd book in this series very much and look forward to more!
