Nicola Claire: Sweet Seduction Shield Sweet Seduction #5



Somehow this series keeps getting better Every one of Nicola s Alpha heroes is my favorite until I read the next book Ryan is my new BBF And Nicola explaining how Ryan was Marie s shield how she fought him from taking things further because she knew Ryan shouldn t have to compromise his ob or values to make sure she didn t go to prison was greatly descriptive And I think having a little girl for Ryan to fall in love with too especially since she was so like her mother helped me stay involved in the story The Magpie Lord (A Charm of Magpies, just a bit I think my only complaint which is sort of ridiculous is there was no Kate in this book She s been in every story and her lighthearted and fancy talk would have been a welcome reprieve for both Marie and Daisy Yes there are a ton of side characters so maybe Nicola had to choose to leave one out but she was mentioned maybe one time and not even when Jason was in the scene Sorry that ends my rant on that Otherwise the dialogue was great the descriptive words and background were sweet and the falling into bed and love was super hot Another one to add to my Favorites pile As usual Nicola Claire has given us another steamy action packed adventure with the Sweet Seduction crew Sweet Seduction shield takes us back into a story that began in Sweet Seduction Shadow and includes my two faves Ben and AbiSummaryMarie Cox has spent five years with a shroud of confidence and ice surrounding her to keep her never ending fear at bay With one visit from an Auckland CIB detective her shield crumbles and her heartbreaking past comes back to haunt her in real time Marie used to be married to her college sweetheart She had hopes and dreams a bright future to look forward to but it slowly seeped away Her husband became a man she didn t recognize as the one she fell for and his actions on behalf of a New Zealand drug lord were what made it that way That part of Marie s life ended tragically and filled with danger and fear but before she found herself clear of that world she guaranteed herself a little insurance and a way to get payback Unfortunately she never followed through after the warning she was given and now she doesn t haveust herself to worry about She also has a five year old daughter Daisy that depends on her to keep her safe healthy and happy Never imagining her.

Ugh If I knew turning over something I had would be dangerous but be for the better good and had someone like Ryan I wouldn t hesitate to do what I could Luckily as the story progressed I found her appealing Ryan was definitely the night in shining armor I liked him for a hero but I wish we saw of his alpha behavior outside of the bedroom I liked him from the beginning but wasn t able to connect with him as well as I did with previous heroes in Nicola s books Still he made for one hell of a fantasy man and the added storyline and conclusion to the McLaren case made this book unput downable Haha I fell in love with Nicola s writing in Sweet Seduction Sacrifice and it only keeps getting better Now I m frothing at the mouth to read Kelly s story We ve known her from the beginning and she s been one of my faves throughout Great Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon (The Billionaire, job Nicola and keep em coming 3 This is definitely the best book of the series so far Loved both of the characters and loved the way the past casts backed them up Looking forward to finding out who Fred is Consistently in this series there are likeable characters alpha males who instantly fall in love with their heroines and lurking danger throughout the book Usually there is steaminess too but this one had a really long build up finally at 70% mark we see some action Unfortunately I have noticed there are details lacking in each of the books which have come to frustrate me as a reader Ex Never is any reference to protection made no condoms references or fear of pregnancy which I find odd and slightly unrealistic and irresponsible In this book this ledger was referenced but earlier on it was too big and had to be transported in her purse later the hero mentions pulling it out of his back pocket Several little innocuous references but ones which cause me to pause and scratch my head I also miss seeing any development with the other couples from previous books Gen has been pregnant the last two without really beginning to show Would be nice to see some development for fans who have lived through the series Really appreciate when all loose ends are tied up could be done a bit better to increase my enjoyment Another awesomesauce book in this oh so awesome series Review in progress Andust so everyone knows I sooo can t wait for the next one alread.
