When the founders of the Guardian Angel Protection Service realize the success of their business requires the assistance of an organizational pro, they hire one of the first applicants for the job. Lainey Jackson gets straight to work, while managing to avoid personal interactions with any of the powerful men around her. She spends her days helping GAPs get organized and her evenings cooking, and dreaming of the day she can run her own restaurant.
Owen Taylor believed he’d lost everything when he witnessed the violent death of his life-long friend and fellow Marine in Iraq. Determined to single-handedly extract revenge, he signed on for two more tours, only to lose his leg in night raid. As he struggles with his urge to lash out at the hand fate has dealt him, he takes an I.T. job with GAPs in Virginia.
After admiring the extremely hot, but mostly silent new employee for several weeks, Lainey discovers a connection with Owen that shocks and pleases them both. By the time he can admit his feelings for her, he and his fellow GAPs agents are forced to take action when the dangerous secret she’s been running from catches up with her.
Liz Crowe has done it again. She has got me hooked on yet another one of her books. This was such a interesting, mysterious, and tragic read. Owen Taylor was a Marine who had to deal with the death of his best friend. Revenge was his only way to grieve, but his desire for revenge lead to him losing his leg. Now, he has to try to live a “normal” life and has to do it all with one less leg. He takes an I.T job at GAPS. If he can’t be in war, he is going to attack his victims with a hacker edge! He is getting used to his life in Virginia and then Lainey Jackson walks in. They are attracted to each other from the go, but both try to deny their attraction. Lainey doesn’t see a gimp, she sees a strong man who she wants BADLY. Lainey is a very attractive woman who knows how to use her assets to her advantage. She doesn’t talk much about her private life, but everyone in the office can tell how independent and commanding she is. Lainey and Owen finally give in to their attraction and they are addicted to each other. Love is like that! It hits you sometimes before you even know it. Mix in a woman who can cook and a man who knows how to make his own beer. Yep, it’s a match. After spending some time together, Lainey discovers just how dangerous his job is. Danger seems to follow these two wherever they go, but can they run from their past? Can Lainey and Jackson continue to live dangerous lives? You will have to read to find out..and you must read! Love & Lagers was full of desire, revenge, and mystery. It was the perfect length for Lainey and Owen’s story with the perfect amount of passion.
