R.L. Dunn‘s ‘The Chase Security Series’, about the Chase brothers and their team of former Navy SEALS and other military officers just keeps getting better and better. I was really looking forward to this fourth book in the series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It can be read as a standalone story but the characters do crossover and I would recommend reading the books in order. This story focuses on the Head of the Domestic Law Enforcement Unit at Chase Security, Zach “Ice” Wentworth and US Attorney Saoirse Kennedy who arrives in Zach’s office on a mission wanting to stop a prolific human trafficking ring. Zach is a Dominant known as Master Ice and he craves a new submissive but not someone he works with. He is still haunted by guilt from losing a female operative who was also his submissive when he meets Saoirse, a decisive and independent women at work but who also happens to be a natural submissive. Master Ice must train Saoirse in Dominance and submission if she is to stay alive going undercover to infiltrate the trafficking ring, as the previous female police officers have all ended up dead. As Zach and Saoirse’s undercover roles and real lives start to blur Zach must decide if he’s willing to risk his heart once again on love.
This action packed, fast paced novel had me gripped from beginning to the very last page. The storyline does involve both adult themes and some dark issues such as human trafficking and sexual assault so it is for readers over 18+. I loved the two main characters and the obvious chemistry between them really came across in the story. I liked ‘catching up’ with characters from previous books as well. The descriptive narrative really bought both the setting and the characters to life which made me feel immersed in the story. An enjoyable and engaging read which I definitely recommend and I’m looking forward to book five in this exciting series.
