All it took was four little words…
“Um, hi. Achilles right?”
The moment I turned at the sound of her voice, my world shifted.
Nervous, sweet, and completely off-limits, Harley Jacobs, was standing there, eyeing me with purpose.
Once the fiery beauty claimed me, I didn’t stand a chance.
She became my siren, a constant that kept away my darkness. Gave me a shot at a beauty I’d never thought possible.
The day I left her behind, my purpose was clear.
Become the man worthy of her.
Now, I’m back.
The rebellious teenage bad-boy is long gone.
I’ve fought wars, saved lives, lost friends, and mourned the deaths of brothers. During this time, one thing never changed.
My obsession with Harley.
Nothing prepared me for what happens when the insanely breathtaking bombshell rocks my world again. The sweet, shy girl I left years ago is now all woman, testing my iron-clad restraint every chance she can.
Harley is impossible to resist, obliterating my plans and self-control with a single glance.
I walked away once, taking the biggest risk of my life.
My name is Achilles Kingston.
And it’s finally my time.
This series is properly named because these Men are definitely full of Action, SPEED KING is Achilles (Ace) and Harley's story. This story is not an insta-love story Ace and Harley have loved one another for over 10 years but nothing was ever done about it until now....Let the fun begin!
Harley is one of those characters I think most of us can find a little of ourselves in, she's a hard worker with a determined personality, she has a couple of close friends but only one that she confides everything to, she has also secretly (to him anyway) loved her high school crush for years...even after he entered the Marines and hardly spoke to him for years.
Achilles, Ace, has returned home after serving ten years in the Marines and is now working on the Nashville Police Force with his eyes set on making SWAT. When Ace left for the Marines after graduating high school he did it with the promise to himself to become the man Harley deserved to have by her side throughout life....silly guy he was perfect for her in high school.
Ace and Harley had great chemistry together and I really enjoyed watching them fall completely and totally in love with one another, even if it was a decade in the making. I also loved their friends, Jewls, Major, Talon, and Ford, and cannot wait until each of the guys gets their own HEA. The author gifted us with some Easter Eggs, and I was SOOO HAPPY to see some of my past favorites couples - if you've read some of her previous work I think you'll enjoy this too.
If you enjoy Steamy New Adult Contemporary Romances, Military Romances, Law Enforcement Romances, or the Friends-to Lovers Trope I would recommend this book to you.
