"Position Secured is a hot, captivating story!"

Marienna Valdez is leary of cops due to her past, but she couldn't help but be attracted to Lieutenant Marcus Pearson, when he needed access to her apartment's vantage point at a crucial hostage standoff situation. He may be good for a one-night stand, but what about a lifetime?

This is a hot, fun read when you're looking for a quick fix. Almost from the get-go, Ms. Brynn ramped up the heat, leaving you no room to heave even a quick gasp. The chemistry between Mari and Marc fairly sizzled, and the tangible hunger each felt for the other almost leaped off the pages.

I also like the heroine's relationship with her cat as she treated it like she would her best friend, as she poured out her thoughts and troubles to him. Cats do make good listeners, don't they?

Given Mari's dislike of cops however, I feel that her turnabout from not wanting to have anything to do with them to jumping into bed with one to changing her mind about them was kinda fast, especially as it all happened in the space of one night and without any real knowledge and understanding of Marcus as a person. I would've been happy with Marc making her see a side to cops she'd never thought of before and thus, making her consider a change of opinion. That aside, the story was captivating as I read it all in one sitting.

Note: This title is included in the list of giveaways for the ongoing contest.

I snagged this one after reading the excerpt you posted before. I enjoyed it as well, though I kept wishing it was longer (but I think that's because it's been awhile since I've read a novella). I'm pretty much in agreement with you on my likes/dislikes (loved the cat, but wasn't sure her rapid turnaround on cops was quite believable).

Your review makes me want to read this novella, especially since you mention she talks to her cat. I love pets in stories.

Thanks for the review. I've read this and I like how hot the scenes were between Mari and Marc. And the way she called him "lieutenant" sometimes, hot hot hot! I think there's something about men in uniform that gave them a distinct hotness. LOL (I hope I made sense)

Silver @ TRR said...

@dor yes and yes. LOL You're welcome! When you've read it, please come back here and share your views. I'd love to hear them. :)

@Sara You're welcome. Now that you mention it, yes, I seem to remember how sexy it was when she called him by his title. Yes, *dreamy sigh* men in uniform. Must be why they're so popular in books...and in strip shows...*wink*
