We’re back and visiting the bad boys from Marshall Security, Incorporated. These former SEALs are all creations of the talented Lilly Holden, and you can tell just how much she loves her bad boy alphas by how well she writes them and how much we get to enjoy reading them.
Today’s offering is The SEAL’s Virgin Hostage. In this story, we get to get closer to Ryder, who is also called Hollywood because he’s the pretty boy. The head of the company, Lance, had a mentor who had a beautiful daughter. When he died, Lance promised to take care of Paige. One day, Paige’s uncle came to Marshall Security and told them that Paige was in trouble. She was drinking, drugging, and running around. Lance decided that he was going to do what he could to help keep Paige safe. To that end, he sent Ryder to get her and keep her safe until her birthday, in 10 days.
Paige is a tabloid princess. As a very wealthy young woman, everyone wants to be near her or be her. The paparazzi follow her around so that they can take her picture and catch her doing stupid things. The tabloids all jump to the worst possible conclusion when it comes to Paige. To top it off, she’s surrounded by people she doesn’t really know and who may possibly want to take advantage of her, her money, and her good nature. One night, in a club, while she is suffering from a horrible headache and she meets a beautiful man who offers to help her. But, what are his real motives?
Of course, you can probably guess who that guy was. And can you still guess what his motives are? There are more layers in this story than you might expect to find. Lilly Holden writes guaranteed HEAs, so you know it will end up well, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t have some questions about what’s happening along the way. If you like sweet and instalove, go check these out. My biggest problem with these stories is that they are short. I just get through them too quickly.
I kind of guessed who the bad guy was before the reveal. OK, maybe not an outright guess, but definitely an I don’t trust that person and I think they are lying for some reason. Turned out that I was right to not trust them and they were lying.
OK, that’s all I have to say today. I know that it seems short, but the story is pretty short and I want you to go read it yourself. We have all kinds of fun stories coming up, so don’t go too far away! Meanwhile, happy reading!
