Jackson (Reed Security, #14). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jackson: Book 2 of a 3 book arc by Giulia Lagomarsino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the 14th book in the Reed Security Series and the 2nd book of a 3 book arc. The arc books need to be read in order and it is suggested that the rest of the series is read in order as well.


Jackson Lewis saved Raegan Cartwright from a terrible situation and has been keeping her and her parents safe. Raegan knows she can trust the sexy man she’s staying with, but her confidence has taken a beating. Still, she refuses to be the wilting flower that everyone expects of her. If only she could get Jackson to see that.


He sees only what he wants to, sure that her refusal to talk about what happened as a sign she couldn’t move on. But when all hell breaks loose at Reed Security, Raegan is pulled into one dangerous situation after another. When it is discovered that Raegan isn’t just an innocent bystander but directly linked to Reed Security’s current situation, she finds herself even more intertwined and is fully prepared to face her issues head-on. But this is more than just an abusive ex. This is something that involves innocent people and deadly consequences. But Reed Security is relying on her and she won’t let them down. 


Reed Security under fire!

The heroine: Reagan – rescued by the men of Reed Security in a previous book. Reagan was living with her boyfriend who was an arms dealer and when he decided to stupidly make a move on his largest competitor who was known for brutality, she decided it was finally time to get out of Dodge. After years of abuse she called her parents, who called in Reed Security and they found her badly beaten in her boyfriends house.

The Hero(es): Jackson – he works at Reed Security and is on a teem with Gabe and Chance. He was the first to see Reagan when they went to the house and she looked like she was dead. He insisted she (and her parents) stay at his house until they determined they were safe, since some of her boyfriends gang and possibly the competitor were after her because of what she might know.

The Story: Jackson is determined that despite taking Reagan into his home, he doesn’t want her and doesn’t want to change his bachelor status. Reagan wants Jackson to stop treating her like she is broken and to start seeing her as a woman.

This is the second book of a three book ARC and part of it takes place in the same time period that the previous book, Sniper. In this book Reed Security is attacked and despite having a very sophisticated security system in place, including facial and handprint scanners, security codes and more. Many of the men are injured, some critically and a few are missing. Luckily, most of the women and children were safe in the panic room (or panic mansion) underground during the attack.

Like all of the Reed Security Series, this was a bit of a suspense, a bit of a thriller, a lot of a romance with added humor and a bunch of steamy goodness. I highly recommend this entire series because it has everything. I am liking this three book ARC though, though just so you know. I started this series at book 21 and read through 26 before starting at the beginning. Most of the books can basically be read as stand-alone books, but it is best if you do read them in order.
