(4- 4.5 stars) This was the first book by Ms. Martinez that I’ve read, and I absolutely loved it! I thought it was a unique story line and I haven’t read anything like it before. Rhion and Jude met years ago when he saved her from a house fire. In the years that follow even though they are both physically scarred, they have interpreted that fateful night differently. I thank the author for having Rhion’s friend rhyme her name (pronounced Ryan) early on otherwise I would’ve been reading it wrong for a majority of the book. I’m excited to continue this series and get to delve into the lives of the other men of Guardian Protection.

I love the guys of Guardian Protection. A bunch of misfits in the most fitting way. We meet Jude and learn how tormented he is from his past. A terror and trauma he can't let go that haunts him every day of his life. He comes to Guardian as the new hire, ready to take on the world and a new start. After meeting the guys of the agency Jude is a little concerned. Johnston is a stubborn big oath and gives Jude a run for his money. Rhion has her own connection to the Guardians, a connection that has her guarded with every turn but what happens when she meets Jude... again. Can these two traumatized tormented souls overcome their past. A past connected yet so different. Interpretation and coping skills so very different. Will the men of Guardian accept Jude for who he is or will they eat him alive when they learn of his past? What really happened that night? What does their future hold and will Rhion overcome her own fears and tormented life. An amazing read of alpha males, strong female characters and a plot that only develops more as you go. An emotional read that will leave you heart broken, fearful and angry yet also make you smile, swoon and laugh... and a little twist to make sure you're awake ;)

4 "It's Real" Stars Aly Martinez has done it again. She's written an emotional story with depth and passion that left a smile on my face and happiness in my heart. Singe is a standalone spin off of her Wrecked and Ruined series so if you're a super fan girl like I am, you'll see a few familiar faces pop up yet this story is a journey all its own. Jude and Rhion meet under some of the worst circumstances imaginable. That meeting sets the course of the next few years of their lives. Though their connection burns bright, they goes years before it comes to a boil. When fate seems to step in and make them face their mutual past together, Jude and Rhion have no choice but come face to face with their destiny. And while their shared past means very different things to each of them, they can't fight the pull. But guilt and regret are hard to overcome. Like all Ms. Martinez's books, Singe pulls at all the heart strings. She weaves a tale using multifaceted characters to really make the story play out in your mind. Rhion is a bit unique and a lot quirky but that endeared her to me right from the start. Jude was a protective alpha who loved big. And while they had their fair share of obstacles to overcome, Jude and Rhion did it together. There may not have been major amounts of angst I was hoping for, but this sweet and sexy story was one I'm so glad I experienced and I can't wait to see what this series will do for the rest of Jude and Rhion's crew.

3.75 stars-- SINGE is the first installment in Aly Martinez’s contemporary, adult GUARDIAN PROTECTION erotic, romance series focusing on the men and women of the Guardian Protection Security Agency. This is former police officer/security specialist Jude Levitt, and heiress Rhion Park’s story line. Told from dual first person perspectives (Rhion and Jude) SINGE focuses on healing, rebirth, second chances and betrayal. Four years earlier police officer Jude Levitt was called to a disturbance at the Park Estate only to discover the house engulfed in flames and Rhion Park struggling for her life. A series of questionable decisions befalls our would-be hero landing both him and Rhion in the hospital with too many questions, and painful burns. Fast forward to present day wherein Jude Levitt will come face to face with the woman whose life he thought he destroyed but the woman who has been the focus of his nightmares and dreams for several years. What ensues is the quick building romantic relationship between Rhion and Jude, and Jude’s struggle to protect the woman which whom he is falling in love. Rhion Park has kept herself hidden from her past in the hopes of protecting her heart and her life. Someone close has made Rhion’s life difficult but the Guardian Protection Agency keeps a watchful eye out on the woman they consider a friend and family. Enter new security specialist, and former police officer Jude Levitt who takes more than a professional interest in the Agency’s reclusive client. For four years Rhion has dreamt and written about the man who saved her life but said man believes he is anything but her hero. The relationship between Rhion and Jude is very quick to develop as the couple has never stopped thinking about the other since the fateful day that Jude saved Rhion’s life. Jude struggles to accept that he wasn’t responsible for the pain and suffering of the woman with whom he is falling in love; and Rhion battles more than one demon from her past. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and captivating. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including several security specialists at Guardian Protection: Leo and Sarah James, Devon Grant, Jeremy Lark, Braydon Hughes, Alex Pearson, and Aidan Johnson,: Rhion’s best friend Brianna Turner, and step sister Katie Spencer, as well as Rhion’s younger brother Apollo Park whose back story is heartbreaking. We are introduced Rhion’s guardian and her father’s best friend Peter Higgins controls all of Rhion’s financial holdings; as well as Rhion’s former wicked step-mother Margaret Spencer, who is all about the money and more-our heroine has a difficult time saying no to her father’s ex-wife. The world building looks at the relationship between Rhion and Jude, and Rhion’s struggle to move on with her life. Not all is as it seems especially as it pertains to Rhion’s family and friends; trust is easily broken; betrayal is but a heartbeat away. SINGE is sexy, intriguing and emotional story line of family, friendship, heartbreak and love. The premise is exciting but somewhat chaotic; the romance is erotic and tender; the characters are colorful and numerous. SINGE is a tense and intoxicating story about second chances at life and love.
