Two who never hoped to find true love I read Garen already and wanted to read Lars therefore as well and was not disappointed. He intrigued me while reading Garen and Mirandas story and I wanted to know how he will fare. As always, you have strong characters. Lars is the alpha male protector and Tamara is stronger than she thinks she is. Always alone those two are toeing around each other trying to figure out if they can trust each other. Attraction is flaring hot between those two and the story is full of action. Lars has his hands full of protecting Tamara from their followers and at the same time to figure out what she is and if they could have a future together, while Tamara is drawn to him, she has learned better. On the run, she learns that Lars is her savior, he knows what to do and when until … (sorry, no spoiler, but this had been one of my favorite parts of the story). The story is full of action and with two likeable characters. Lars is not only tough but also helpful to find her true self. And you want them so badly to have their HEA. I’d love to read some more Rubicon books. When you like shifters, secrets, espionage, strong characters and hot love stories, this series is yours.

This is the second book in the Rubicon International Series and it's just as exciting and sexy as the first book. We have Lars, the European location co-owner of Rubicon, an International Espionage Company. He's lived a very long time and no longer believes he'll have his forever mate and acts accordingly with the women. He's presently working a case where his goal is to kill a man who is one of the high ups in the heroin trade. While casing him out in a casino in Monte Carlo he sees the mans companion, whom he believes is a hooker or the mans current girlfriend. He later finds out her name is Tamara, and he is instantly attracted to her; like strong thoughts of a sexual nature. He tells himself he has to keep his eye on his goal. Later, after someone tries to kill him, he learns that the man has already been killed and they think it was him. Read what happens when due to dangerous circumstances he saves her life and now feels he has to keep her safe. They both are keeping secrets from each other but meanwhile they can't seem to keep away from each other. Find out what and why Tamara is keeping her secrets, and unknown to both of them, is in a way connected to Rubicon. I can't wait for the author to write the next book in the series, as Rubicon is filled with very interesting people and stories. After all it and it's owners have been around for over 200 years.

Received this book free for an honest review. Lars, Book 2 in the Rubicon International series, is a seamless continuation of action-packed thrills, romance and adventure. I loved this pace of this book and that the author gives you a choice on whether you'd require background information or not to continue reading. It's dangerous, funny and steaming hot! I look forward to future books in this series.

Espionage and taking down bad people is a hard job but someone has to do it. In Monte Carlo an evil man had to die, Lars is all set to do the man in when he gets the call his cover has been blown. As soon as he gets to the airport a cab jumps the curb, the cabbie has been shot dead but the women in back is not and it's the same one he had seen earlier with his mark. The women he couldn't keep his eyes off. Acting on his gut he takes the women with him to his plane to get her to safety Jaret Chen had to die, he had killed her sister or at the least ordered it. Problem was she was not a killer but she had taken him out now she was running for her life. In her run she ran right into Lars protection. Good thing too, it's the only thing keeping her alive. The action on this is a 10! The characters are fantastic, the story is a hot mix of spice and suspense. It's not to be missed. Lars is like a German james bond who can shift into a big cat! I loved it truly amazing. There is so much to this mystery, suspense and shifters wow! Book given for an honest review and I honestly loved it.

This book is the second book in the Rubicon International series. I have read multiple books from this author, including the first book in this series, and I was not disappointed in this book. This is a standalone. And no cliffhanger at the end though it is open-ended for future books. There is violence and hot steamy shifter sex. Definitely 18+. The author packed a lot of emotion and action into this read and this story moves fast. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author does a good job describing the background of the company which is the basis of the series (which helps if you didn't read Book #1), the main characters Lars and Tamara, and why they are on the run. I really enjoyed this story. I look forward to reading more of Ann Gimpel's books and the next book in this series once it's released. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review though I would have purchased this if I had not.
