His Woman. His Family. His Company.
When the going gets tough, the tough get Alpha.
Silicon Valley billionaire CEO Gabriel Betts has finally found the happiness he’s been searching for—in gorgeous, brilliant fellow billionaire Lauren Taylor, the so-called reigning queen of the biotech industry. But when Chinese healthcare mogul Li Na Zhao kidnaps Lauren’s sister in a high-stakes game of corporate espionage, the world they’ve worked so hard to protect comes crashing down. Li Na agrees to trade Hannah for Lauren’s Paragon Laboratories and her help—onsite and in person. In an attempt to keep Lauren safe, Gabe calls in his security-industry professional brothers to help get Hannah back. But when the rescue effort stumbles, Gabe must pick up the pieces to protect the woman he loves…before she makes the ultimate sacrifice.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
4 out of 5 stars
4 out of 5 stars
So I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars, but really this book was more of a 3.5 star read for me. I say this because while I enjoyed reading more about Gabe and Lauren, this book just wasn't as exciting as the first book. The storyline was interesting and all, but I just really wanted more crazy stuff to happen instead it was more of the same of what we got in the first book with all the back and forth between Lauren and Li Na Zhao with Gabe doing everything in his power to prevent Lauren from getting herself kidnapped or worse killed. Also, I found that the romance was kind of pushed to the side in this book. I understand that Lauren and Gabe were dealing with some life or death situations, but I still feel like their romance should have had more of a focus than it did. Those things aside there were still a lot I enjoyed about this book. The biggest highlight for me was of course meeting Gabriel's brothers and I really hope they become more important in future books because they really intrigued me. And of course I enjoyed the way this book ended. I really liked the way the author left things with Lauren and Gabe. After everything these two go through in the book it was nice to see that they could could still have a normal and happy relationship. All in all, I enjoyed this book and while I did have some issues with it, I'm still extremely eager to see what Leigh James has in store for these characters next!
