Secure Decision (Chase Security Series Book 5)Secure Decision by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the 5th book in the Chase Security series and I loved it, 5 stars. I was pulled in right from the beginning. I was excited to finally get Wes’s story.

Ellie is excited to be starting a new job working with horses and doing equine therapy. She does have a past that she is trying to get away from, so she has some pretty big walls up.

Wes is part of Chase Security and had a mission that really affected him. Trying to move on from the mission he focuses on the new equine therapy. When he meets Elle he is instantly drawn to her. When there is a scary twist it changes things pretty quickly, will Wes be able to solve the crime and keep everyone safe?

Overall I really enjoyed this book, you can feel the attraction between the characters. And the twists and turns will keep you on your toes. I really enjoyed their story, the author does a great job of pulling you in with her writing. I felt like I had a couple of different stories going on, which I really enjoy. Each book can be read as a stand alone but I suggest reading from book one. We get drama, suspense, secrets and so much more. 1-click and get started today.

Secure Decision (Chase Security Series Book 5)Secure Decision by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a book only for those over 18 due to its themes of an adult nature and adult contents.

This installment of the Chase Security International series is the story of We “Alamo” Crockett, he is a medically trained ex Navy Combat Medic who has now transferred that to being a Paramedic and the head of the newest Chase Centre for Training in Virginia and is working all hours of the day to prepare for the Centres opening while meeting all the new employees and running the orientations and overseeing the security of the plot of land which the Centre is built on. When he receives a call regarding a friend, he immediately accepts him in a role at the facility, knowing that it will help the both of them as he is on point with his work no matter what is happening around him and Wes needs someone he can fully trust to take on some of the responsibilities associated with running the Centre.

As he is going into the centre of town to drop off some paperwork, he finds that a car has been in an accident on the property and is currently wrapped around a tree with a woman with a head full of blonde curly hair bleeding and injured within it, that woman is Eleanor West, the new Director of the Equine-Assisted Therapy Programme and she is heading to the Centre for her first day on the job, however, when she sees a cow in the middle of the road, she screeches to a halt to try and avoid it, however, she hits the tree instead because of the rain slicked road surface. As Wes is tending to her, bandaging her eyes, hooking her up to a drip and talking to her the whole time while waiting for the emergency services he has called to aid him, they don’t know who the other is, however, they soon realise it when she is taken to the hospital for treatment. She is clearly terrified and uncomfortable with certain aspects of the treatment, however, she feels comfortable with the man who rescued her and he looks after her as best he can and this includes taking her to stay in a room in his home overnight so he can check in on her concussion and other injuries. As she recovers, Eleanor continues to feel comfortable with Wes, however, she feels like she doesn’t stand a chance because of her looks and some of the snide remarks she begins hearing when she goes to settle into her accommodations thanks to the rumours which start flying around after her stay in the boss’s home, what she doesn’t know is that Wes is feeling the same way about her, with her curves, wit, dedication to her job and personality, he is finding it hard to resist her charms.

As the week progresses and the Centre is closer to opening up, tensions mount when the snide comments and rumours cause friction within the therapy team as they don’t believe she can do the job, however, when she takes charge of the situation and makes changes to the team, she proves that she can and will do what is needed for both the horses and the future patients. Meanwhile, a gruesome discovery is made on the property line and this leads to an investigation and stress of a completely different kind when it appears that the curvaceous blonde he is developing feelings involved appears to be attached to it and as the two become closer, Eleanor has to make the decision whether to share her past with Wes or to just tie up loose ends and do what she always has done and run away. Will Eleanor be able to overcome her anxiety and body image issues to open herself and her secrets up to a possible future with Wes and can he keep his feelings for Eleanor separate from the investigation into the discovery of a web of secrets and lies surrounding the Centre? This is a romantic suspense with plenty of heart, it will draw you in and keep you reading to the conclusion to find out which of the possibilities come to pass.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secure Decision is a great installment to the Chase Security series by R.L. Dunn. This romantic suspense is filled with wild emotions, drama, danger, intrigue, drama, friendship, romance and more. There was so much going on in this book that I found myself furiously flipping the pages to find out what happened next. Personally I recommend you read the previous installments as they do lay a great foundation to the story and provide great character and story details. But you can read each of them as a single novel if you so wish. I was really excited when I saw this fifth installment and Ms. Dunn does not disappoint. Just like her previous installments Ms. Dunn gives us incredible story lines, fantastic character development, and overall a story that leaves us wanting more.

Secure Decision (Chase Security Series Book 5) by R.L. Dunn – Review by Jennifer Gordon

Secure Decision (Chase Security Series Book 5)Secure Decision by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the previous four books in this series I was really looking forward to this latest novel and was definitely not disappointed. As usual with a ‘Chase Security Series’ book I was hooked from start to finish. Although part of a series this can be read as a standalone story although some of the characters do crossover as the series follows the Chase brothers and their team. In this novel it’s the Senior Executive for Chase Security International, Wes ”Alamo” Crockett’s story. Wes is a Combat Medic and nationally registered Paramedic who has just taken over the Chase Centre for Training in Virginia. Wes is suffering with self doubt over a previous tough mission in New York but has to put his feelings aside to oversee operations including a equine-assisted therapy program for disabled veterans. It’s here where Wes meets the new Director of Equine-Assisted Therapy, Eleanor West.
When a body is found in a cabin on the training centres property Wes has to investigate as well as being assigned to a case involving women being kidnapped, so he definitely does not have time to find himself attracted to Eleanor. Eleanor is also fighting the chemistry between her and her boss as she’s just started a new job and is hoping for a new start after years of running and hiding her painful secrets. However when these secrets endanger those she cares about Eleanor has to make a difficult decision and may have to put her own life at risk to end her nightmare. Meanwhile, Wes must choose between gaining Eleanor’s trust and helping her and the missing women’s case.
This exciting and engaging novel is fast paced and full of drama, suspense and of course romance. The main characters Wes and Eleanor are likeable and realistic and their chemistry really sizzled off the page. I particularly liked that Eleanor is a curvaceous women and her negative body image made her very relatable and was written about in a sensitive way. This is a great addition to the series and I recommend not only this book but the previous four as well. I look forward to book six in the series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secure Decision is the 5th book in the excellent Chase Security Series by R.L. Dunn. I have absolutely adored this series so far and this book was just as good, if not better then the others before it.
Secure Decision is an excellent romantic suspense novel. I love a good romance story but R.L. Dunn takes them to another level by adding the suspense, intrigue and danger that make this book a page turner. I was totally hooked from the very first pages right up to the very end. You are taken on the most amazing roller coaster journey that brings out every emotion.
I loved the 2 main characters Wes and Eleanor. One thing I personally loved is that Eleanor is a larger, curvier lady with insecurities about her size. In most romance novels the main female is slim with a gorgeous body but I love that R.L. Dunn chose to have a leading lady with a larger body. I also loved how Wes loved her curves and made every attempt to tell her and show her how alluring and sexy he found her body.
One thing I mention with with every review from this series is that I’m amazed that R.L. Dunn can keep up with all the characters. The cast list is very extensive and at times I had to stop and think who some characters were (especially as some we using more then one name!!). This doesn’t affect my enjoyment of the book as it’s an amazing story with amazing characters. I’m just in awe of how the author manages to keep track of all the characters.
I’ve loved this series so far and hope that there is much more to come from it. I’m especially desperate to get Troy’s story. That man definitely needs a HEA.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While this story had a LOT of twists and turns and intrigue I did struggle quite a bit. The character list is extensive and most of the characters have three names they go by. Its a challenge to follow the main story when all are used along with the quantity. Speaking of the main story…its a doozie. I loved the idea of horse therapy facility especially for vets. This seems a minor plot point. As with most Chase Securities stories there is something bigger brewing.

I think my favorite character in here is Troy “Greece” Bremen. He has been a minor through the last couple books and in here he had a little larger role. I enjoy watching his changes and growth through his recuperation. Wes and Eleanor are both fine but they both are harboring secrets and are very intensely involved in the drama and chaos which is too much for me.

Overall this is a good story if you enjoy lots of action, suspense, drama and twists and turns like I haven’t seen in a while. This can be read as a stand alone but there are a few references to past books. I did enjoy where the title comes from and the actual journey that the MC’s took. I just had a few issues with this one and didn’t feel the connection between the MC because there was so much going on.

Secure Decision (Chase Security Series Book 5) by R.L. Dunn – Review by Barbara Stegall June 2021 .

Love Love Love!! So I picked up the book because of the blurb but once I started reading I could not stop reading. So much for sleep as I could not put the book down as I HAD to read just one more chapter! My heart bleed for Ellie once it clicked in my head what had happened to her. I wish we all could have a Wes in our life. So now that I know this is part of a series I will be going back and reading the first four books. Oh and picking up any new ones! Happy reading for me and you!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secure Decision (Chase Security Series Book 5) by R.L. Dunn is another fantastic book in one of my favourite series. RL has once again pulled all the tiny threads together and woven yet another story where the tension is palpable, and your heart is pounding, and your emotions are on high alert. Her Chase Security stories are full of action and danger, secrets and lies, heartache and love, suspense, and mystery, intrigue and deceit, murder and drama, sexy alpha hot men, and strong women. They fight for what is right and put themselves on the line to make it happen. This is one series you want to start at book one and work your way through even though this is a standalone, it is that good.

As always, I look forward to the next book with bated breath.

Secure Decision
Chase Security Series
Book 5
By R. L. Dunn
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
This is a full length Suspenseful Romance. I hope you are following this series, as I am. I recommend you start at book 1. Not for those under 18, due to the adult theme.

Wes, Senior Executive for Chase Security has helped build the Center for Training in Virginia. Eleanor is the Director of the Equine Assisted Therapy at the same center. One accident has set their world in a tailspin. Leaving quite a few unanswered questions. Secrets threaten this couple as well as daily deadly incidents. The missing women and children need to be rescued. Some left dead or near death. It is a must to get the center ready before the arrival of new clients. Will Wes and Eleanor be ready? Better yet will they survive the threat that is after them? Most of all, will they get the romance they are trying to avoid?

R. L. Dunn has done it again! She has set this story up in the first chapter and kept you at the edge of your seat. This fast paced story keeps the roller coaster dropping. Along with the many emotions that will keep the story alive. The characters are both self reliant and strong. Their willpower is non stop. Every book in this series has something new for the readers to read. New highly intense adventures and romance is what is in this story. Well Done R. L. Dune! Well Done!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book 5 in the Chase Security Series and just like previous books we are taken on a journey involving danger, trafficking and a man who will stop at nothing to protect what’s his. I loved this story. The main character Wes is strong and well trained as we have come to expect but he also has a softer side which is endearing and you can’t help fall in love with him.
Our leading lady Ellie is a fighter. She has a history she is trying to escape from and like most women she has insecurities about her body and about how people see her.
Together their relationship is beautiful and becomes something powerful.
As well as the romance there is also danger when a body is found on the Chase Security property who did it and could that be   someone who is out to get Ellie?Is it someone from her past or a new enemy and can they find out who before its too late. The journey keeps you guessing and wondering who you can actually trust.
