Hostile Territory (Blackbridge Security #1) by Marie James ~ Book Review with Giveaway


Hostile Territory by Marie James is π‹πˆπ•π„ and 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐄 with Kindle Unlimited! Don’t miss out on the 𝑯𝑢𝑻 𝑴𝑬𝑡 of the Blackbridge security team!

Can you call someone an enemy if you haven’t seen them for the better part of a decade?

Deacon Black is perfectly content with the status quo—work, sleep, repeat.

Who cares if he’s rigid, structured, and set in his ways?

It’s a job requirement that keeps his men safe and his company’s doors open.

One phone call is all it takes to upend his life and land him right back into a past he has tried to forget.

Revisiting old ghosts is the last thing he needs.

Especially when the forced trip down memory lane includes the only woman he never wanted to see again.

Annalise Grimaldi hit the jackpot with her life—from her trust fund to her best friend, she has it all.

But her world comes crashing to a halt when her best friend vanishes— leaving behind an apartment in tatters and more questions than answers.

There’s only one person she can think of that can help in a situation like this.

She hates to make the call, but there isn’t a thing she wouldn’t do to make sure her friend is found.

Even setting aside her hatred for Deacon Black.

I have to say this was an interesting twist on the Enemies-to-Lovers trope because I don't recall ever reading a story about the Enemy being your best friends ex-husband. Some may think this is a betrayal of the "girl code" but after reading this book I would disagree.

Deacon is former Military and now owns Blackbridge Security he never expected to see Anna again after his failed marriage from her best friend, Dani, eight years ago so to say he's in shock when she walks into his office would be an understatement but with the news she drops at his feet he is furious. 

I have to admit that I really enjoyed the quick comebacks that Anna had with Deacon especially when some of them could be taken a different way, that was just hilarious! The attraction and chemistry was there at the beginning but it was a nice slow build before things really started to boil. I loved the way MARIE JAMES dangled the carrot but  had us enjoy every moment until we got to where we wanted things to go.

HOSTILE TERRITORY was a great start to the BLACKBRIDGE SECURITY SERIES and I cannot wait to see the rest of the guys get their HEAs.

If you enjoy Romantic Suspense or the Enemies-to-Lovers trope I would recommend this book to you.

Happy Reading!!!
