**Received ARC for a fair and honest review** Security Risk is the first book in the Pelican Bay Security series by Megan Matthews. I’d rate this book at 4.75 stars!! Tabitha Thompson has had it with her boyfriends abuse and not only moves out, but takes a little money to help her get away from him. Not only does she move out but she moves across country to Pelican Bay Maine. When she arrives to the house she was left by her aunt, she ends up meeting her new hot, sexy neighbor Ridge Jefferson. When Ridge (or Ridley) meets his sexy new neighbor he’s completely infatuated by her. But when he finds out she’s in trouble he will not stop trying to help her out of it. This was such a fun read— gives you humor, suspense and romance all in just the right amounts! I breezed right through the book, was hard to put down! I really enjoyed the characters. Even though she’s been through her fair share of issues, you see her character evolving in the story, which I rather enjoyed. And how do you not enjoy a male counterpart that is not only tall, dark and handsome, but also kind, caring, accepting, but still an alpha male/guys guy. Then there are the sub characters! I really am looking forward/hoping they each get their own stories! The storyline was good, kept you interested, didn’t lag and didn’t drag out unnecessarily. The only gripe I can come up with, is right when they finally get together the story ends, there is an epilogue, but it really didn’t give you real closure. I’ve been noticing that a lot lately... just something that personally irks me. Can’t wait for the next book! Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!

3.75 stars, rounding up to 4. I enjoyed the book overall, but there were a few things that just felt off for me. However, I got a kick out of some of the quirky/crazy side characters. They were a lot of fun and made the read enjoyable. Same can be said for sexy bits. The h tends to be naive about things from her past, which is fine, but it makes me wonder about her. The whole narrative is the h, until the epilogue where it switches to the H. Personally, I think the book could have been richer for having more of his POV within the book. This is the first book I've read from the author, so I don't know if this is her normal style of writing.
