No One To Trust - Katie Reus

Book Blurb:
Computer security specialist Elizabeth Martinez has never been able to turn her back on her brother Benny. When his risky lifestyle finally lands him in harm’s way, Elizabeth finds herself dragged into the dangerous underworld with him and into the cross hairs of one of Miami’s death-dealing drug lords. Only after her ex-boyfriend saves her does she realize she might have no choice but to depend on the one man she has tried so desperately to forget.

Former Marine Porter Caldwell never should have let Elizabeth walk away from him all those months ago. She means more to him than anything and now that she’s in danger and turned to him for help, he won’t make that mistake again. When a local gang targets her and she’s nearly killed in a drive by shooting, Porter vows to do whatever it takes to keep her alive. Even if it means turning his back on all that he’s sworn to uphold.

In My Own Words:
While finding herself, AGAIN, bailing out her brother.  Elizabeth finds herself in need of some bailing out herself.  Coming face to face with one of the worlds most ruthless, vile drug dealers.  He gives her a proposition...if he could have her for 6 months, the debt her brother owes would be forgiven.  Before she could even answer, in barges Porter, her boss' brother and operator at Red Stone Security, oh and he is her ex-boyfriend.  While trying to keep Lizzie safe, Porter must remember that she broke up with HIM and his job is just that, a job.  Easier said than done.  As the hail of bullets keep coming, Porter realizes he would do anything for her, now he just had to prove that to her without getting them both killed.

I really wanted to like this book.  It had everything that a good RS should have, but the ending was very abrupt which was really annoying.  There was a HUGE build up with the bad guy, Orlando, then all of a sudden he is arrested and Porter loves her and all is well.  It was just a little off putting for all of the drama in the beginning then at the end just wrapped it all up with a sweet little bow.  That being said, I will still be reading book 2 in the series, as I really did enjoy the characters.
