Title: Claiming Alexis
Nothing is more important to Blake Anderson than the work he does with his brothers at Ace Security. At least that’s what he thinks until he meets the fiercely independent Alexis Grant. The security firm’s new intern pushes all his buttons—and makes his temperature rise. But giving in to temptation might be risky business.
Alexis can tell that Blake has his doubts about her ability to commit. But while most people look at her and see only a flighty rich girl, she knows he sees much more. Determined to prove herself to Blake, Alexis jumps at the chance to work undercover. And when her case takes a dangerous turn, she puts her trust—and her heart—in his hands.
Now, as Alexis digs into the deadly secrets of a local gang, Blake will lay everything on the line to protect the woman he’s come to love.

I’m so happy I picked this series back up. Where I liked the first installment, I LOVED this one. Although it’s not necessary to read the first book prior to this one, I strongly recommend it. It’s always a good idea to read the stories in order. Even if they can be read as standalones.
Alexis is the sister of the brother who was being used in the first book (see, told you you should read the first one). She’s also the rich girl who everyone has already labeled before getting to know her. Like, truly getting to know who she is. Everyone has always assumed who she was and she’s tired of it. When she first got involved with Ace Security, she was immediately drawn to one person in particular, Blake. And now that she’s working closely with him, she’s fallen in love with him. But she’s not his “type” and nothing will ever happen, right?
Blake is one of the triplets that run Ace Security. After everything that went down with his brother’s wife and the Inca Boyz, Ace Security is out for redemption. So Blake and Alexis have been working closely to get as much information on the gang as possible. When Alexis volunteers to help them “get in” with the gang, feelings and emotions start to take over and there’s no stopping them. Maybe getting Alexis involved wasn’t such a good idea.
Do you know why I loved this story? Because Alexis was determined to prove that she was someone. Not only to those from her past, but to herself. She never gave up. She put herself in really stupid situations. But it was always for the better of the case, even when she was forced to deal with some demons from her past. Blake was sweet and gentle and every bit the manly man we thought he’d be.
And now I’m seriously biting my fingernails until I get Nathan’s story. OMG! If my imagination is heading in the right direction, we’re in for another crazy Inca/Ace showdown. And I can’t wait!!!
