This was a good romantic suspense, with a love triangle formed when they're forced to make difficult choices. Mantis and Alegria had a turbulent relationship, and Dutch, who has also loved Alegria, finds himself wanting to give in to his feelings. The plot and suspense was engaging, and although I like more heat in my romance books, this was a good read.

I have read a lot of these types of books lately and honestly found this one to be refreshingly different. Her writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, I found myself in love with not only the characters but also the world she created. Their attitudes toward the events that are happening makes the story even richer. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

After nearly losing her, he now knows he wants her and only her. He is not the only one now. They both want her but there will be other problems before it could be decided. What is going to happen? Can they keep her safe? See what will happen

Mantis and Alegria have had their trials but with Mantis putting the mission first, it hurt Alegria. So turning to Dutch for support (and more than that - which I thought was tacky), she has literally told Mantis they are done. But he still holds her heart yet she strings Dutch along who really does love Alegria. I wasn't too thrilled with Alegria and thought she acted very selfish to the point I was hoping both guys would dump her and look elsewhere. Mantis is devoted to Alegria even though she is now with his best friend. The best part of the book was finding out about Mantis' and Dutch's history. I get that Alegria had trauma but who in these books hasn't. Loved Dutch as well. Such a great standup guy! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I received a free copy of this book however all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. I loved this book, it grabbed me from the first page and I couldn't put it down until the last word. The storyline was well thought out and written, and the chemistry between characters was great.

A fantastic must read that will have readers captivated from beginning to end. Filled with angst, thrillingly dangerous situations, heartache, flirtatious banter, and romantic, unforgettable love. Mantis is a former Air Force pilot turned K19 operative who has been in love with the same woman for years. Alegria always thought she would marry Mantis until life and decisions got in the way. The story line was well written and captivating The characters were wonderful and lovable. Heather Slade writes great descriptive story plots that are easily imaginable by readers. I absolutely loved this book and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is book 4 in the K19 Security Solutions series and it features Mantis and Alegria. Their love is so deep and explosive! How they could stand to be apart for so long is beyond me. Their reasons are understandable but hard to accept. My heart breaks for Dutch though. He’s a good man but I don’t know how he does it. His last text to Mantis brought tears to my eyes. The action and suspense is amazing with all these fantastic characters! There is so much thought and planning that must go into these books, which makes them hard to put down. It’s not just a quick run through of a military-type op but a detailed, almost as if you’re there, op. I can’t wait for the next book from this very talented author.

Another great edition to the K19 security family and this book can be read as a stand alone but do yourself a favour and read the entire series the order is Razor, Gunner and Mistletoe you will not be disappointed and will have a far better understanding of this book Mantis, Alegria and Dutch are a team that has worked together for years they always have one another's backs but what happens when Mantis and Dutch both develop feelings for Alegria who will she pick wil it destroy the team You will need to read to see. There will be plenty of blood pounding action in the meanwhile as this team takes on yet another case for K19 security

I have read several of the other books in this series and each one is exciting, emotional and have well written storylines and awesome characters. This is no exception. mantis, Allegria and Dutch have been friends since their days at the Air Force Academy and have each other’s backs. Mantis and Allegria have been a couple off and on for sometime, but they are very passionate about one another. When Mantis takes a mission Allegria doesn’t want him too, she gives him an ultimatum, her or the mission. He takes the mission and she breaks it off with him. When she is wounded in an Op, she calls Dutchand he steps in, because he has always loved her too. This is a great read with ups and downs, suspense, heartache and following ones heart. Highly recommend this book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The K19 series continues with Mantis and Manon's story. The story is full of lover's regrets, physical challenges to overcome, dealing with family and facing personal feelings of love. Great story that I didn't want to put down till the very end. Well done! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

An emotional romantic suspense!❤️️ I have read every book in this series, so far, and love each one! They are all so well written and developed that it seems like they are all my friends now. In this one, as with most of the others, you will need a box of tissues because of all the sub-plots and twists. It has not been an easy romance for Mantis and Alegria, but then, nothing so deep and true ever is. I adore these two... I know, I say that about each one, but it's true. This one will take you on a really emotional journey full of friendships, misunderstandings, forgiveness, and lots of love. Oh yeah... and some intrigue and danger thrown in there to keep it from being too sweet. It is the fourth book in the K19 Security Solutions series and reads much better in the order it was written, in my opinion.

When Mantis Cassman's best friend, Dutch, rescues him, Mantis knows he's not coming home to the woman he still loves because Alegria is with Dutch now. Talk about a mess! But Dutch knows in his heart of hearts that Alegria doesn't love him the way she loves Mantis. Will Dutch step aside so his best friend can have the future with the woman they both love that Alegria and Mantis have looked forward to since they all met years ago? Although I've read the first story in this series, Razor, it didn't really affect my understanding of Mantis because I don't remember Razor that well aside from remembering I didn't like the heroine. So I'd say this is definitely a standalone within a series of interconnected standalone stories. I have mixed feelings about Mantis. I didn't connect with any of the leads and quite frankly, the idea that Alegria so quickly hooked up with her ex's best friend really irritated me. Yes, they were both single so technically it was OK, but yet, not really. There's a friendship code and both Alegria and Dutch stepped way across that line. Honestly, if I were Mantis, I wouldn't have been able to take her back knowing she so quickly hooked up with my best friend once I was gone. So 3.5 stars because, although well written, I didn't connect with either of the leads and once again, I didn't like the heroine.

Heather Slade writes such captivating stories. This one is no exception. There is a love triangle between Mantis, Allegra, and Dutch. These three best friends need to figure out who is meant to be together, and who needs to move on while still remaining friends.

This is a well written book with an intriguing story line. The author once again brings strong well developed characters and weaves a story filled with drama,secrets,danger and suspense as well as the romance. It's action packed with enough twists and turns that kept me glued to the pages right to the end. The passion and chemistry between Allegra and Mantis is hot but will it be enough? I loved this book / series and highly recommend reading. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

Awesome Action Romance OMG, you did it again! I loved Mantis. I started reading it and honestly before I knew it, I was at the end and Happy Crying. That was SO sweet. The action, the characters brought in and just everything. You did just enough background explanation for anyone new, which was great for me also. Thank you for letting me read the ARC provided by Booksprout

ARC for honest review with no compensation received from BookSprout Mantis is the 4th book in the K19 Security Solutions series by Heather Slade and another amazing addition to this series! While a standalone reading the other books in this series will give you more background into Mantis, Alegria and Dutch’s story. Mantis, Alegria and Dutch have been a trio of friends since the beginning of their military careers, having each other’s backs through thick and thin. So much happens to them individually and together but will love prevails for Mantis and Alegria? Will Dutch lose their friendship and love? Another page turner, filled with suspense, intrigue, enemies, emotional turmoil and danger...cant’t wait for Dutch’s story!!

This love story is different than the others in the series because two members of the K19 team are in love with the same woman. Inevitably, either Mantis or Dutch will be left heartbroken. Heather Slade did a great job handling the situation between the three friends. Mantis is another great addition to this series! I voluntarily read & reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy from Booksprout.
