About this ebook

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jayne Rylon comes a steamy new multi-partner standalone series set in the Powertools universe.

The Shields security team accepts missions in the grey area of both law and morality that no one else wants or can handle. They’re a ragtag bunch of special ops soldiers, ex-government agents, and hackers wrangled by a former construction worker who aspired to be a superhero’s sidekick when he grew up.

What could go wrong when they turn their sights on a human trafficking ring that might have been the reason their coordinator’s sister disappeared nearly thirty years ago?

Nolan Skalbeck is sure their assignment is a bad bet. Regardless of whether or not they find the hauntingly gorgeous woman their artist sketched or not, the horrific things he discovers about the operation they’ve infiltrated convinces him they have to shut it down for good by whatever means necessary.

What he doesn’t expect is to fall for a woman who already has a partner, and is willing to share him with Nolan. Once he has, it will take every bit of his strength and training to keep from losing them both.

Even if he’s successful, how will he convince them, himself included, that he’s not a horrible person—like the ones they’ve been surrounded by for most of their lives—even though he hunts and destroys evil bastards for a living?

The intensity of the love between Laurel and Jace is nothing compared to the chemistry ignited when Nolan joins the couple. Laurel and Jace have had a deplorable past but finding each other has anchored them and pushes them to create a future. Feeling the strength radiate from the duo despite their past was incredible but heart breaking to see the hurdles that they couldn’t pass. But watching the jokester of the team, Nolan immediately fall the couple was priceless yet even better to see how tender he was in breaking the shell of Laurel and Jace. Such a great story - full of action, love and pure chemistry. Can’t wait to watch the next team members story!!

This was another great story by a fantastic author as a spin-off Shields : Powertools. This story has Nolan wanting to find James sister Laurel who he’s know a long time. But she has been missing and he wants to find her. He searches in a place that he thinks she maybe. When he finds her he also finds a friend that was with her. He helps them return but he’s got feelings for Laurel. Will they get together? I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Found was a great start to the new series! I almost forgot how much I missed the authours romantic suspense books, but this brought it all back, and in such a sexy fashion. Laurel and Jace have lived a harsh and brutal life and that shows in their feelings, their actions, and their commitment to each other. Nolan is living a good life, doing good things, and while they are dangerous things, they are to bring an end to the suffering of others. Immediate attractions, new lives, new ways of thinking about and doing things, and bad guys getting their just deserts in spectacular way, what wasn’t there to love <3
