Heroic Measures (Blackbridge Security #6) by Marie James ~ Book Review


 Release Date: August 3

Opposites don’t just attract.

They captivate.

They entice.

They beckon.

As the medic for the Blackbridge Security team, he was just fine hanging out at the office in his spare time.

Jude Morris was…boring.

He didn’t need excitement.

He wasn’t a thrill-seeker.

Then he met a woman who was.

Parker Maxwell, the only woman able to captivate, entice, and beckon him, was his antithesis.

The up to his down.

The light to his dark.

The hot to his cold.

He couldn’t take his eyes off of her.

She didn’t seem to notice him.

It’s going to take heroic measures for this guy to win the girl.

There was so much to love about this story but the fun part for me was reading the scenes that ran parallel to CALCULATED RISK and seeing how the other side of things played out.

HEROIC MEASURES is the sixth book in the Blackbridge Security Series, each book in the series can be read as a standalone but since it revolves around the men that work at Blackbridge Security I would recommend reading them in the order they have been released in order to avoid any spoilers, and that would also give you some addition background to this story. Jude Morris is the teams Medic which means he usually doesn't go out into the field but, he was tasked with teaching a gun safety class along side his co-worker and friend Quinton when he meets Parker Maxwell in this story.

There is an instant connection between the two which is rather surprising since they are COMPLETE OPPOSITES, this is beyond having different interests their personalities are Polar Opposites. Jude is quiet, reserved, a workaholic, and a homebody, where Parker is very outgoing, a go-getter, and enjoys being the center of attention.

There is a little angst in this story but nothing over the top and you may pick up on what is happening and why rather quickly if you pay attention to the clues. I loved watching Parker fall for Jude for me it's always fun to watch the party girl find the one that she can't be without and that is exactly what happens here.

Marie James did a wonderful job with giving us two very different characters hat you can't help but rooting for right from the start. If you enjoy Steamy Romantic Suspense or the Opposites Attract Trope I would recommend this book to you.

Happy Reading!!!

Meet Marie James

Let's see...where to begin...

I'm inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we're doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master's degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there's usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I'm not writing; I'm reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I'm reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it's gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
