though there s details I don t remember I m finding I am enjoying it again This was a good book a very very fast read 4 hoursand a nice start to an interesting miniseries However it must not have been a great book because a day later and I can t remember much about itI liked the Adair Winston brothers and Debra s efficiency made me smile Otherwise not much Off 13 plot to speak of except for what I saw coming a mile away 4 stars but for Harleuin I suppose it s 5 stars While the book does resolve the romance for the main coupleart of the story surrounding the romance is unresolved I m off to find book 2 Plus I have my fingers crossed Sam gets a book in this series Weirdly they aren t written by the same author That s happened in other series by Harleuin but for me that s just odd I have always wanted to do this Adair Winston FamilyYes make a family tree And since neither of the Adair series has one I felt compelled to create one Do let me know how it is and whether it needs improvement after reading all the books of courseThe reading order of the series is as follows The Adair Legacy Amata Means Beloved published 2014Her Secret His Duty by Carla CassidyExecutive Protection by Jennifer MoreySpecial Ops Rendezvous by Karen AndersSecret Service Rescue by Elle JamesAnd then comes The Adair Affairsublished 2015Carrying His Secret by Marie FerrarellaThe Marine s Temptation by Jennifer MoreySecret Agent Boyfriend by Addison FoxHeir to Murder by Elle JamesRead the books in the above mentioned order and you are good to goNeedless to say as all the books in both the series come under the Mills Boon imprint of Romantic Suspense all of the above have tons of suspenseful action Published a year apart you can draw arallels between the books of the two series There are many similarities in their storylines and it surprised me a lot as nowhere it is given that there is any link between the two series and I myself stumbled upon them almost a year apart Thankfully I had read The Adair Legacy first otherwise it would have been a bit of a spoilerI love the way Kate s character has been written and also how beautifully it has shaped up over the course of the 8 books While all other characters are flitting in and out she is the only constant Even if briefly she appears in all the books and makes her appearance count always the An never reveal the father's identity to anyone Because not only is Trey Winston her boss's son he's also got his eye on the North Carolina senator's seatand he doesn't need a scandal But when Debra must work with Trey in organizing his fun.

Atchmaker Also being the former vice resident you almost don t expect the homey atmosphere of Winston Estate which welcomes you to the books especially in The Adair Legacy seriesBoth the series are the individual stories of three brothers and their sister with the only exception being the sister s daughter replacing her in The Adair Legacy which makes Kate a GrandmaHer Secret His Duty by Carla CassidyThe Adair Legacy 1What I felt about this one is that it could have had a bit romance And the same goes forCarrying His Secret by Marie FerrarellaThe Adair Affairs 5Appearing under the category of Romantic Suspense these two appeared to have missed the romance a littleSimilarities Both are classic MB secret Juice pregnancy tropes with the eldest sons Trey and Whit heading their respective businesses while the femalerotagonists Debra and Elizabeth work for one of their arents art office romanceExecutive Protection by Jennifer MoreyThe Adair Legacy 2AndThe Marine s Temptation again by Jennifer MoreyThe Adair Affairs 6Similarities The first one above has the lady convincing the man about falling in love while the second one is vice versa But of course it is only if you narrow it down to that otherwise both the books are great to readNow s where the order is getting a bit muddled as far as similarities are concernedSpecial Ops Rendezvous by Karen AndersThe Adair Legacy 3Secret Service Rescue by Elle JamesThe Adair Legacy 4AndSecret Agent Boyfriend Addison FoxThe Adair Affairs 7Heir to Murder by Elle JamesThe Adair Affairs 8Similarities While 4 and 7 have secret agents Daniel and Derek acting out as boyfriends to their respective female Gudrun protagonists Shelby and Landry as a ruse for investigativeurposes 4 and 8 are all about long lost identities of Shelby and JacksonWhile the first series deals almost entirely with an attempt to murder the second series deals with an actual murderAnd one thing which is common to all of them is that someone is always trying to kill someone so definitely suspensefulSpecial Mention Be sure not to miss Elle James books as both of the titles will send you on a roller coaster ride of nail gripping action I am writing this while searching for Elle James books I have fallen in love with her writingBoggled your brains Well read it out and then you will knowOriginally Mob Mistress posted on A One night stand with her employers son leaves Debraregnant Now Trey is running for Senator and her employer is deciding whether or not to run for President Debra is determined to do her job and not let this indiscretion keep Trey and Kate from achieving their goals Now Debra keeps misplacing things then a shooting and a fire Is someone wanting to kill Debra or what and why DNFTHIS WAS PREDICTABLE AND ALMOST PAINFUL TO READ BASED ON THE CHARACTERS Let s Stud in the Stacks pretend we don t love each other attitude combined with the lack of drama thatushes all your OMG buttons I m not saying this was bad but I wished the characters were PUSHED a bit harder and challenged to create an astounding romance coupled with a good suspense Surprisingly I had beef with the romance than the suspense Choosing to Survive plot here I love this series the cast of characters drew me right in to the story This book had a lot going on Kate had served as viceresident She had three sons Sam had come home from the war closed off He needed help but no one could break through his walls to help him get the help he needed Thad was a Robin Hood police investigator Trey was following in the family footsteps and wasutting in his bid to run for a senate seat Debra was Kate s ultra efficient secretary Trey had been dating Cecily It was just assumed that Trey would marry her She came from a good family Cecily was a beautiful socialite She was always going to charity events and would make the Felipa perfectoliticians wife Trey and Cecily shared the same common goals but the two did not have any chemistry that simmered between themOn crazy night Debra found herself in a bar drinking after a break up Trey was in the bar celebrating a big win for his company That night Cecily couldn t join him Trey found himself enjoying the company of Debra The sparks flew as the two ended up sharing a room for the night Debra and Trey had chemistry They knew they could never have a relationship For he was The Vavasour Macbeth promised to Cecily and she worked for his mother That one night they made magic and a baby Debra loved trey too much to ever tell him about the baby She did not want to ruin his dreams of being elected for office Trey became veryrotective of Debra when strange accidents started happening and she was someone s target The suspense of who was behind the accidents was really good We had a lot of The Blueprint (English Edition) people to wonder about I thought I had it figured out but I was wrong Over all this was a great book that I would recommend to anyone that enjoys action suspense books with a touch of romance I m not crazy about books where the characters cheat This story was written in a way that it felt like it was ok I know cheating is never ok If there was no love or chemistry the two should have ended things Gosh I don t want to spoil the book for you I will just say I was happy with the outcome of how thingslayed out. D raising dinner the sparks from their one night of Crisis of the Strauss Divided passion still sizzle Trey knows he should stay away from Debra but it soon becomes impossible And as Debra's life is threatened Treyromises to keep herand unknowingly the baby she carriessa.
