Beck (Corps Security #3) by Harper Sloan


**Warning** This book is intended for a mature reading** 


I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man. 

But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again. 

All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self-right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have. 

So I did the only thing I know how to do. 
I run. 
But he just won’t let me go. 


The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out. 

To make her mine. 

She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her. 
She’s it for me and she knows it. 
She’s just too scared to admit it. 

Once again I am so honored & jazzed to be one of the first few people to get ahold of Beck and Dee's story thru Twinsie Talk Book Tours.

The first thing I think its very important to understand is that this is not a fluff piece. An easy read. There are books that are emotionally hard to read and this is one of them. I know I wasn't the only one hearing Danity Kane's Damaged as I read this. Dee's background is so troubled and so dark that you can't help, but want the best for her. (Along with some serious therapy) The world is not all unicorns and glitter, and just because you have been introduced to the man of your dreams doesn't always mean you two are the right fit at that direct time. I say this, not as a deterrent, but as a reason why a person should read this book.

 I am familiar with the entire series (I did review Cage when it was released as well). It is always nice to return to a favored series and visit known characters. From the getgo Beck and Dee's relationship was doomed. Dee was definitely not ready for what Beck was willing to give to her and wouldn't be ready for sometime. 

 For this book, the pace was slow enough for you to actually see the progress of Beck/Dee, but not so slow that the book was in danger of falling into the dreaded DNF (did not finish pile). And one of the most important parts of this book, Harper reminded me of Stephen King because in his books no one is safe. Anyone and everyone is vulnerable. Even though what happened - happened I was relieved to see that his brother was welcomed into the circle. I cannot wait to see how he is incorporated in this series; a series which get's better and better with each release.
