Still Waters (Greenstone Security #1) by Anne Malcom
TITLE: Still Waters
SERIES: (Greenstone Security #1)
AUTHOR: Anne Malcom
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: 31st March, 2017
There’s a phrase: Still waters run deep.
But there’s more to it than that.
Because "still" doesn’t denote peace. Nor calm. Nor happiness.
It’s an illusion. It's chaos.
The only way to handle chaos is to become it.
That’s what Lucy did. She created stillness out of the chaos tumbling inside her and called the most chaotic motorcycle club in the United States her family.
The Sons of Templar gave her chaos, friendship, family, danger and death.
But she wouldn't want it any other way.
Then he came. The one who showed her that her handle on chaos was tumultuous at best.
Showed her how to stand still.
And how good it could be.
And how drowning in those waters comes as easy as breathing.
Still Waters is the first book in The Greenstone Security Series by Anne Malcom. I've only read one other book by this author so I'm keen to see what kind of journey she takes me on with this book!!
Lucy has been surrounded by the ‘Sons of Templar’ most of her life, so to see her living it up in her expensive heels drinking her fav margarita at one of their parties is the norm, she’s also sworn off men within the chapter, so when a hot guy with no cut walks into the party all claims are off.
Stop the freaking bus!!
’He was hotter up close. Way hotter. Adonis had competition. Shit RAGNAR from ‘Vikings’ had competition. His skin was milky chocolate, smooth apart from the peppering of stubble on his sharp jaw.’
Gasps no one is hotter than RAGNAR!!
* The author was not hurt during the write up or after this review at any time *
Ok as you were!!
In the beginning I felt like I was missing a big chunk of the story, nothing seemed to make sense, but after a quick glance at a review it’s stated that Lucy’s character was first introduced in the ‘Sons of Templar’ series, but that doesn’t stop you enjoying this story if like me you’ve not read that series you still get a grasp on her background and what makes her tick as you progress further into the story so that didn’t take that away from my enjoyment of this book.
Lucy has endured so much heartache, loss and suffering in her lifetime, more than any one person should ever have to endure, your heartstrings will be pulled in many directions reading through the suffering she has survived. In some aspects it’s hardened her towards finding love and this is where she's like an ice queen not allowing many to get too close to her. She's a solitary person, has one childhood friend she's unbelievably close too and that's about it other than her sibling but she's ok with that.
Instead of dreamin' about the woman with skin as white as snow, hair as black as night, a vocabulary that would make a sailor blush and a pussy that would start fuckin' wars- ones I'd fight and win in by the way, instead of dreaming of her. I'm literally living my fuckin' dream.
Being a kiwi myself it was nice reading about a hot kiwi male those are few and far between when it comes to books and boy this man puts all other men to shame, he’s as alpha as they come, when he sets his mind on something nothing gets in his way!! NOTHING!!
“I meet a girl with hair as black as night, skin as white as snow, lips to make a priest forget his vows and a body that a certain soldier can’t seem to get out of his mind”
Lucy or Snow as Keltan aptly names her is a stubborn sassy, sexy heroine and Keltan our hot kiwi fella, is an ex soldier and a very determined man when it comes to Lucy who doesn't back off when many a man would.
You're broken too. Not in a way I can fix, though I'd give a fuckin' limb to do so. I was right in thinking you were royalty, babe. A kind of princess. But not one any man can save. You've gotta save yourself. I've gotta let you. I'll wait. And hope that's gonna happen in time for you to realise that you're not the only one who's broken. And you're not the only one you need to fix.
I don’t want to give too much away with the storyline but I highly suggest come release day you grab that credit card out, blow the cobwebs off it and one click this!!
