"A great read" #BookReview Locked In Temptation by Brenda Jackson

Locked in Temptation (The Protectors #3) by Brenda Jackson 

His job is to protect her…no matter the cost

Police detective Joy Ingram's connection to elite security expert Stonewall Courson is instant. Undeniable. Electric. But her commitment to protect and serve has always come first. Everything else is secondary—especially when she uncovers an underground surrogate baby-making ring. Joy can't risk a distraction during the most important case of her career, not even one as sexy as reformed ex-con Stonewall.

There are few things Stonewall values more than a strong woman. But when Joy's investigation draws her into a deadly conspiracy that goes deeper than she ever imagined, he must convince her that he's the best man to protect her. And while he puts his life on the line to save hers, the insatiable attraction between them becomes the one danger neither of them can escape.


I haven’t read a Brenda Jackson book in quite a while. This book was as full of as much passion as I recall in her books. Although the sex scenes may have been a little bit on the side of overkill with the doing it, thinking about it, and talking about it quite a bit, the romance between Joy and Stonewell was really sweet.

Joy is a detective who knows how to do her job well. I was impressed with how she handled herself I this story and the one Ms. Jackson stated that she’d worked on a previous case. A strong heroine is always a good find. Stonewall is magnificent. As an ex-convict he’d paid the price for his crime and came out a better man. He’s stern, serious about his job as a body guard, yet he’s such a romantic (Sigh). The two were perfect for each other.

Even though it is a stand-alone, I wish I’d read the first two books in the series first. I’m sure that catching up with the characters was great for people who had read those books, but it took me out of the story in the beginning. It wasn’t until I got to know them a little that I appreciated hearing about what they were up to.

Overall it was a great read.
