Joseph (The Kings of Guardian Book 2) Kindle Edition
A dead man’s plea pushes Dr. Ember Harris headfirst into a swirling mire of drugs, death and political corruption. The Cartel boss who murdered Ember’s friend will stop at nothing to get the information entrusted to her. After all, finding and killing a mere woman in order to claim the evidence should be easy. A matter of a contract, time and money. Terrified, alone and on the run, Ember reaches out to the only person she knows she can trust.
Joseph King is an assassin. He’d just unpacked his bag from an assignment he probably shouldn’t have survived. Life as an assassin comes with an expiration date. Sooner or later your competition or your target will get lucky. Out of spare lives, Joseph knows it is time to hang it up and walk away while he still can. Best laid plans, right? One phone call from the only woman he’d ever cared about successfully sidelines his disappearing act. Protecting Em will be his last mission. This time he’ll risk anything, including his life, to keep her safe. For her, he’d stroll through the sin-stoked fires of hell and gut the devil himself.

The ‘h’, is a complete submissive. Anything and everything the ‘H’ wants to do to her, she is OK with because ‘she has always loved the H’. Very weak character.
He keeps calling her ‘little girl’ and tells her ‘he is so proud of her’ for enduring his kind of sex. I wanted to throw up that the ‘h’ was stupid enough to think this was wonderful endearments.
Take a wild ride with Michael's Joseph into the world of assassins, secret agents and lots of bedroom fun. This can be read as a standalone but I suggest starting with book one Jacob for a better understanding of the characters and storyline. Happy Reading!!!📚
Kris Michaels is a fantastic author. Joseph, book 2 in the Kings of Guardian series, was a great read the first time and even better the second time I read it. Joseph is a man who cares deeply and is such a protector, yet he only allows himself the love of his family from a distance. His life has been one dedicated to ridding the earth of those who seek power and wealth by using and hurting those who have no one to defend them. Into his life comes Ember, a girl he met as teenager, loved, and left behind. Ember needs Joseph's protection, his skills, and his love. Joseph needs Ember and her unfailing, unending love for him. All is not sunshine and roses for them. Danger and heartache shadow the possibility of a future together. I loved this book!

Joseph is the oldest of the brothers and the demons he wrestles with every day are strong, vicious and threaten to consume him. He’s ok with that. It’s who he is and who he wants to be. He uses it to be one of Guardian’s Shadow assets who deals with those others won’t touch. Except for his family, he has no ties to anyone or anything. When the girl from his distant teenage years calls, he has no choice but to go to her aid. He loved her when they were still kids and he would do anything for her. Except give them what they both want but know they can’t have. A future together. He will keep her safe, though. At any cost. Even if that means forfeiting his own life.
Ember is a trauma doctor and has seen her fair share of life’s ugliest, but she is feisty, tough and has a personality to match the fiery red of her hair. When danger comes calling, she calls the only person she knows who might be able to help her. She has no idea what she’s gotten herself into, but now there’s someone who will go to the ends of the earth to help and protect her.
Just like the first book, the story is beautifully written with characters so well described you feel they’re real. Settings, sounds and emotions are all there in full 3D effect, and I could easily get lost in the book and read it all in one sitting. In fact, I think I did.
After reading the first book I couldn't wait to get stuck into Joseph and Ember's story.
Man I was so not disappointed!
I think I might have liked it more than book #1, if that's possible.
This, like the first one starts off in quite a dark place. Joseph has been captured and is being tortured at the hands of his captors but they have underestimated him. He proves why he is the best of the best.
Dr Ember Harris has quit her job, she wants to see what else there is out there. Unfortunately a meeting with her ex ends with her life being thrown into turmoil, resulting in her finding herself in a world of drug cartels, death and corruption. Alone, scared and on the run she calls the only person who she feels she can trust 100%.
Joseph is an assassin working for Guardian. He's a loner, he keeps himself separated from those closest to him. He knows that a life such as the one he leads has an expiration date. He decides that it is time to leave it behind but rarely do things work out as planned. A phone call from the only woman who he has ever truly cared for changes everything.
He'll protect Ember with his life if necessary.
Will it come down to his life to save hers??
"Death is their common ground, only they stand on opposing sides"
Once again the depth that Kris Michaels has achieved is brilliant.
I was drawn into Joseph and Ember's world, felt every emotion with them.
Joseph can come across as a bit of a dominating ass at times but I found myself liking him despite that!
I liked the fact you learn more about the other characters too.
I so look forward to Doc (Adam) and Keelee's story which will be coming out next.
The King family are a family big bad people who keep the world safe.There is only one person the are who could possibly give them nightmares. Their oldest brother, Joseph, the bad@$$ of a family of bad@$$es. They live dangerous lives, running black ops in the most dangerous parts of the world. However Joseph's world is even darker by comparison to his brothers. He is the loan wolf that is called not as the cavalry, but to permanently remove the threat. Ember "Em" is the only girl he has ever really loved and the only person in the world who is not scared of him, highlighted by the fact she is the only one allowed to call him Joe, not Joseph or Fury. They have not seen each other in about 16 years. Em is in trouble from some bad men, now she call her old high school boyfriend, these "bad" men are completely unprepared for Fury unleashed. However that is not the only question can a man living the way Joseph does even consider a real relationship, and is a happy ever after even a possibility.
The best thing about this book for me are the characters. Yes the steamy passages are great, and surprisingly even the action and tactically passages are great and very well researched, but the star of the book/writing are the characters. Kris really made me care about the characters, even the side characters many of who are returning from the first book. This is another thing I love about this book is the continuity of the series. I like the way Joseph does not just change into a sap around Em, his character is consistent all the way through the book. He is a hard man who loves and lives hard. Great book for any genre, I would definitely recommend it.
No potential triggers
There are no grammatical or editorial errors
There are some sex scenes and some swearing
The characterisation is outstanding both lead and supporting characters.
I am a huge Kris Michaels fan because the writing style allows you to simply fall into the storyline and this is no different.
I love the Guardian series and can't recommend it enough.
