Secure Her (Chase Security #4)Secure Her by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book contains scenes of a graphic and sexual nature, only those over 18’s only should read this.

Zachary “Ice” Wentworth is the head of the Domestic Law Enforcement Unit within Chase Security, he has worked his way there from being an ex Navy SEAL, all the way up, but he is still recovering from the loss of a female operative who was also his submissive partner. Saoirse Kennedy is an US Attorney and is extremely good at her job, she is brave, determined and beautiful, but she is also naive in matters of the heart.

Zachary is travelling back home after visiting San Diego for an operation, as he approaches the airport departures ready to check in his luggage and his firearm, he notices a woman ahead of him in the line who is also checking in a weapon, but she is having a lot more problems than he is doing it, so he steps in and then asks to speak to the supervisor about it. This leads to them introducing themselves and parting ways, that is until she ends up sitting next to him on his flight, she is easy to talk to and conversation flows easily between them, but she is guarded, but nevertheless, Zachary can’t deny his attraction to her. He offers her a ride to her destination in the city, but unbeknownst to either of them, she is attending a course in undercover work which Zachary just happens to be running. As the course proceeds, there is one person who Zaxhary realises is underqualified and although she is allowed to finish the course, his dissatisfaction is reported back to her supervisor.

Thinking no more of the situation and a few months pass until Saoirse turns up at the Unit headquarters asking for a meeting with Zachary with a conference call with Martin Bailey at the same time, but what he hears is not what he expected, it turns out that an undercover female officer has been murdered while on assignment to infiltrate a trafficking ring and the woman in question was the same one who was on the same course as Saoirse. As the conversation deepens it turns out that they want Zachary as a dominant to train Saoirse as a submissive to enable her to try and infiltrate the same ring, but he is uncomfortable and unsure as to how to proceed given his past and when it turns out that Saoirse wasn’t given the full details of what would be happening, he isn’t so sure that either of them will be able to do it.

As Zachary digs deeper into the files associated with the case, he can see that there is more than meets the eye and that the target for the investigation is a rich businessman with a lot of connections, plus that there have been ten other undercover female operatives who have died as well. As Saoirse is trying to decide whether to take this case on, Zachary throws her in at the deep end and takes her to observe exactly what being dominant and submissive entails, she is shocked and as things get more serious, she opens up to him and agrees to try. Will Zachary and Saoirse be able to get her trained up and ready in time to carry out the infiltration, or will they become too drawn into their roles to distinguish between their reality and their personas? Will their feelings come between them and the mission, or will they be able to trust each other enough to get over the barriers in their way? This is a suspenseful thriller which draws you into another world as you follow the investigation and infiltration until the end to see how the story concludes.

Secure Her (Chase Security #4)Secure Her by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5/5 Stars

Secure Her (Chase Security Series #4) by RL Dunn

This is the fourth book I’ve read by Dunn. Another amazing read by this wonderful author. This is the fourth book in the Chase Security Series, but can be read as a standalone.

Saoirse is in town for help. Little does she know she’d already met one of the members of the people she is going to. Chase Security does all kinds of things and she needs their help. The quote I chose for Saoirse is: “Shove me if I snore. I’ve been awake for the last two days packing up my office. And yesterday, I missed my planned flight because the people subletting my place in San Diego were delayed. I’m starting a new position in New York. This was the last possible flight to be on time for work at 0800. God. I’m babbling.”

Zach met this lovely lady on his way home. He’s also known as Ice to the members of Chase Security. When he realizes that the lovely lady that he met needs their help it changes everything for him. Will he get his second chance? The quote I chose for Zach is: “Ah, if you weren’t in the same predicament—you know, if I tell you, I’ll have to kill you—but since you’re on one of the boat’s decks… I carry for Homeland.”

Highly recommended for Romantic Suspense lovers.

Secure Her (Chase Security #4)Secure Her by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once I started I got pulled right in and didn’t want to stop reading.
Zach is reeling from losing one if his own, she was important to him in many ways. And when he gets put into a new mission he meets a woman that makes him crave a sub, especially when he has to train her.
Saoirse is starting a new case and when she meets Zach she is pulled right in. The more that he teaches her about submission the bigger the attraction grows. Will Zach risk his heart again or will he lock it up? Will they be able to solve the case?

Overall I really enjoyed this read. We get several twists and turns along with the POV of the victim as well, which added a great element to the story. All of the characters were great. The author does a great job with her writing and you feel like you’re right there in the story. This is my favorite in the series so far. I will warn you that this is a book for 18+. If you’re looking for a great read, 1-click and get started today.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secure Her is book 4 in the series. I have read the others in the series but this one is by far, my favorite!!! The two main characters are Zach Wentworth and Saoirse Kennedy. I was shocked to see them go undercover together. Just thought it was odd how they met and then weeks later they are going in together to take down the human trafficking business that has killed many men, women and children along with some precious undercover agents.
They must work together and get in character so no one suspects a thing.
These two make such a cute couple reading about them and I swear I love them.
This book definitely will keep you flipping the pages until late at night because there is so much going on and so much suspense that you need to know what happens next.
You definitely want to go grab a copy of this today. Great read!

Secure Her (Chase Security #4)Secure Her by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secure Her is the 4th book in the fantastic Chase Security Series by R.L. Dunn. This is a series that has had me hooked from the very beginning of the first book and I was excited to get another instalment. Was I disappointed? Not a chance. I absolutely loved this book. I was hooked from start to finish. I also loved getting a chance to see the guys from the previous books and seeing what these guys are up to now.
Secure Her is the story of Zach ‘Ice’ Wentworth, Head of Domestic Law Enforcement for Chase Security. Given the job of trying to infiltrate a human trafficking ring, Zach has to train US Attorney Saoirse to be his submissive in order to bring down the ring.
I loved this book, the dynamic between Zach and Saoirse is amazing and I loved reading their story. The whole storyline flows really well and keeps you enthralled as the story unfolds.
I’ve said before about this series of books but it amazes me that the author can keep up with all the different characters. There is a huge list of characters that make up this book, and the others in the series and I know I found it hard to keep track of who is who. It certainly doesn’t affect my enjoyment though as these books are so well written that you can’t help but be on the edge of your seat, scared to turn the page to see what happens next.
I’d definitely recommend Secure Her and the rest of this series. All worth more than 5 stars each in my humble opinion.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Author’s Note: This book contains graphic depictions of sexual assault. Read with caution.

This story is the fourth book in the Chase Security Series. I highly recommend reading this from the first book in the series, but seriously you will enjoy the entire series. R.L. Dunn’s creative descriptive language is off the charts. I could see the scene in my mind’s eye. The characters are fully developed and have very unique qualities. When getting ready to read this book I highly recommend getting settled in because you may just read the entire book. Zak is the head guy in the domestic division in Chase Security. During his last assignment he lost one of his unit female operatives (who just happen to be one of the submissives). He has vowed never to have relations with an operative again. Wait until Saoirse enters the office will he be able to keep his word to himself about relations with those he works at. What is in store for Chase Security? With Zak? I highly recommend this story. It is a great read.
