Broken: (McIntyre Security Bodyguard Series - Book 3) Kindle Edition
As a 22-year-old female professional bodyguard, Lia’s a rarity in a male-dominated field. She may be a petite, cute blonde, but she’s a master of martial arts and Krav Maga, and she can render a man twice her size unconscious in just seconds. Lia hides a painful past behind a snarky, take-no-prisoners attitude. She was horribly betrayed by her first love, and she’s determined never to let anyone use her or hurt her again. To make sure that never happens again, she’s got rules. One, never sleep with a client. And two, never sleep with the same guy twice. The walls she’s built up to protect herself are rock solid. Until she meets her new client, Jonah Locke, a swoon-worthy rock star with a heart of gold.
Jonah Locke is the front man for the most popular rock band in the United States. His band dominates the charts, and he’s constantly hounded by crowds of fan-girls and paparazzi. The guy can’t sneeze without everyone on social media knowing. A bad break-up with the Queen of Pop sends him from LA to Chicago, where he just wants to lie low and write new songs. Unfortunately, trouble follows him to Chicago. When he meets his new bodyguard, he falls hard for her. But lust transforms into something more when he gets to know the woman beneath the kick-ass shell.
Broken can be read standalone, but it will be enjoyed more as part of the series, because there are lots of cameos of other beloved McIntyre Security characters. HEA, yes! Cliffhanger, no! Read this book only if you like smart-mouthed, feisty heroines who don’t take crap from anyone.

This 3rd book is the eagerly anticipated book features Lia's story. Lia is the only female sibling, but she is just as fierce as her brothers. This book features her growing relationship with Jonah when she is assigned to be his bodyguard. This book actually contains lots of humour moments as well as a perfect storyline of romance.
There's less danger in this book than the previous two, but that doesn't distract from the story at all. However if you prefer your male character to be the alpha male you won't find that here as Lia is 100% the alpha lead. I had thought that would make me enjoy it less (I like aplha males) but it genuinely didn't and I put that down to amazing storyline/writing.
My only thought it that book 4 will also be Lia and Jonah's story (a bit like book 1 and 2) because this book, although it did end happy, the ending feels like it was just the beginning of their relationship. I will be waiting not so patiently for it. All 3 books I would highly recommend.
The third novel from April Wilson is a fantastic read that that will grip you from start to finish.
Lia McIntyre is such a great leading female, the way April tells us what happened to Lia to make her the person she is was written in a way that you feel the emotion and frustration as if you were there. Jonah for me was one of those leading males who you love almost from the start, loved that he knew what he wanted and set out to make it happen.
The way April writes is brilliant and works so well, with each book April grows as a writer and I’m looking forward to what comes next. Although this book can be read as a stand alone I would recommend that you read Vulnerable and Fearless first that way you know better who some of the characters are that get mentioned.
Where do i start ......... this book is amazing - i couldn't put it down just like the previous two books (Vulnerable and Fearless). Lia is a very stong character and from what i've read in the previous book she came across as a very hard woman (which is good), but it was great to see what made her the person she is. Broken can be read as a stand alone but I would recommend that you read both Vulnerable and Fearless first are characters from these books are mentioned. Just like i feel in love with Shane and Beth characters i did with Lia and Jonah.
I've just started to re-read Vulnerable and Fearless as they are just great books that i could re-read again & again. April thank you for another amaxing book and can not wait for the next two books in 2017.
I love the range of characters Wilson has created and the lovely and feisty Lia being the alpha bodyguard in this book is a delightful twist on the "bodyguard romance" tale. If you want the more traditional take then I strongly recommend books 1 and 2 for Shane and Beth's story. However Lia and Jonah's story is beautiful and I really fell in love with them both.
The only slight criticism I might say is that unlike the previous books there is a little less suspense or threat which made it a little lacking for me. Not wanting to constantly compare to the previous books but it is a slight gear change from Shane and Beth's story which was so intense and dangerous. Lia and Jonah seem to be more about the emotional scars they both carry but don't let me put you off Lia can kick some serious ass and one of my favourite scenes is early on in the book when she breaks in (literally) some new recruits to the firm. Lets just say Jonah is impressed.
I recommend this standalone novel to anyone and put in a silent plea to the author for me...particularly looking forward to Jamie's story. (Please say you are doing Jamie's story).
