    One thought on “Jacob”

    1. Down right perfect!I am coming back to edit this review because I wasn't sure if I wanted to possibly mess up the book by leaving a less than perfect review but here goes. First, if there were more than 5 stars I would give them on this one. A woman, Tori, is being held in an Afghani warlord's prison. They are torturing her and have been for what she thinks is 67 days. They have starved her, tried to down her just to puking her back at the brink of death to begin again. She is a photographer and [...]

    2. 4.25 First Date StarsSo it's been a while since I went on a first date. I mean a real first date. I've been married for about 120 years. But i still feel like I go on first dates. Every time I start a new book especially a book by an author I haven't read before, I feel like its a first date. Will we get along? Will we share the same sense of humor? Will this lead to a second date? Yes, readers go on lots of first dates, but never one like the first date in this book.Tori has a dangerous job. Yo [...]

    3. 4.5 starsI really enjoyed this book! Great setup to the series. Jacob is really swoon worthy. So awesome and sexy. Tori is kickass and I loved her too! Plus as a preview - they remain awesome throughout the series. There is a lot of action and I enjoyed the action and suspense on top of the romance. Loved all the side characters too. Cannot wait to read the series!I have a few safety gang warnings within the spoilers. Also my reason for only 4.5 stars is also a spoiler. (view spoiler)[Story begi [...]

    4. 3.5 starsIf you are looking for a sexy read with a lotta hot alpha's, then this will tick your reading boxes.

    5. Hot momma!!This one had me at "Curled on the crude bench, Tori blinked and fought to keep her focus. She etched one more line into the soft plaster of her cell wall. The added line brought the total to sixty-seven white marks scratched into the dirty plaster. Her mind twisted, muddled by fragmented thoughts. The words that haunted her formed a familiar cadence. When would they come? When would the pain stop? Is it morning or evening? Will I die today?"Which, yes is the first paragraph!! I don't [...]

    6. Oh man I've been wanting to read a book with a strong heroine and this is it. Tori (Victoria) was strong, brave and funny. It all started when Jacob a bad-ass guardian who went to rescue an american who turns out to be that plus a women. She was being tortured for about three months and when he rescues her she is badly broken but that doesn't stop Tori from cracking jokes. They make a date for a year none who think either will show, Tori goes to show how strong she she is before he found her whi [...]

    7. This is the first book in Kings of Guardian series. (Black Ops Group)First up is Jacob King and Victoria (Tori) Marshall. I really loved this book.Jacob is on a mission in Afghanistan, where unknown to him, Victoria is being held as a hostage. He of course saves her and is intrigued by her strength and humor even after being in the situation she has been in. They agree to a dinner date in one year, to catch and see how each of them are doing.After their dinner date at a restaurant owned by one o [...]

    8. 3.25+ RATING- I thought the overall story had potential but some parts of the suspense portion of the story and the Guardian Agency were a bit too over the top for me. Also a healthy dose of cheese in spots. Still, I'd probably read more in the series especially if a future book involves the twins in a MFM menage =)

    9. As debut novels go, Jacob impressed me! I was hooked from the first chapter and read it in just a few hours.Victoria has been held captive in an Afghan prison for months suffering horrifying acts of torture at the hands of her captors but never breaking. When Jacob and his team stumble upon her as part of another mission, he knows he can't leave her behind. Most men would have caved and given up under the circumstances but he is awed that this woman is still struggling to hold a conversation and [...]

    10. Jacob (Kings of Guardian 1)Kris Michaels4.5 starsVictoria Marshall has been held in hell. The prison she has survived in has brought her suffering, torment and abuse. She knows she wasn’t supposed to live. She knows she wasn’t supposed to fight but she has. Her captures can torture her but she wont give up. They will have to kill her and she never knows when that day will come but until then she will fight. Tori realizes she is believed to be dead and no one is coming for her. How do you con [...]

    11. I received a Read 4 Review copy – here is my HONEST review!Jacob is swoon-worthy with a Capital J and K -- every girl’s hero in fatigues. Right from page 1, Kris Michaels had my attention. This book starts with a very true to life reality check of the war around us and right when things looked very bleak, at the very end of the line, in swoops Jacob King to the rescue. You can thank Kris Michaels for a very strong female lead that knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go for it! For a w [...]

    12. Loved it! This is the first book in this steamy romantic suspense series and though it introduced a lot of characters as is typical in first books, it held my attention. Nicely written, lots of action, romance, steam, humor and I got emotional a time or two as I kept turning the pages. This was Jacob's story. Leader of a team that went into an Afghanistan "prison" and discovered an American female that had been held captive for several months. She was filthy, beaten, burned, broken leg, dislocat [...]

    13. I love, love this book!!! I can't believe this is this authors first book!!! The characters and the story are very well written. This author pulls you into the story through the great descriptions of the scenery, the great love scenes between the main characters and all the way through to the action packed adventure that is the lives of the "Guardian" boys and girls :) There are stories within the stories so you get to know the main characters but you also get the idea that she is setting you up [...]

    14. I was given a copy from the author, for an honest review.All I can say is WOW, what a debut for Kris, it started out massively dark, then took a turn for what started out as an action packed story. I felt myself trip into the book, get lost, gradually climb out & get sucked back in again then it was finished & I felt empty. So in other words I FLOVED IT! The opening scene, just WOW, then the next few chapters like I said I was LOST! add to that the action through out, the heat, the suspe [...]

    15. This is my first book by this author and I liked it so much I've added the others in the series to my TBR list. I like it when there is more to a story than just the angst of two people hooking upis series about the alpha men and smart, sassy women of Guardian Security is going to be a thrill rideI just know it. This one is the story of Jacob and Victoriahe rescues her from and Afghani prison and they set a date for one year from the date of her rescue and the story takes off from there. I found [...]

    16. REALLY liked this one, starts off with a major action packed attention grabber. Sure the resulting insta-love and the marriage/baby came at light speed quickness. The CIA heroine is perfect which normally has me rolling my eyes but I liked her. I love what I call military/special ops alpha romance and this one kept my interest and well. it just worked for me. Liked the family of badass brothers/sisters who provide the series material. Moving on to bk 2 ($0.99). New author for me and this series [...]

    17. SHAME ON YOU FOR PASSING OFF AN UNFINISHED PRODUCT!!!!!!Every other page is a highlighted scene of the story that is repeated on the next page. Incomplete sentences and scenes are what you get. It's like the author published her staging notes instead of the final product. I couldn't get past chapter three. Unless this version is updated, I will be filing a complaint with and seeking a refund!

    18. I think this suffered from book 1 in a series. Too many characters to introduce. The hero and heroine basically have instant lust for each other. Not much romance building. He's a soldier, she's a CIA agent, they can relate to the horrors they've seen.I'm looking forward to some of the hero's brothers book more than this book. I am upset that Doc lost his memory of the heroine's sister.

    19. Sexy alpha meet the tough as nails woman, he'd never realized, of his dreams.I was biting my nails while fully engulfed in the intrigue and action of Jacob.Mr. King and Tori are a perfect pair.I loved reading this ARC

    20. CONTAINS MILD SPOILERSI really, really wanted to like this book. I was so excited when I discovered it on . The description sounded great (black-ops suspense romance is one of my favorite genres), and it was highly rated by reviewers. The best part was that I could see there were eight books already, so I couldn't wait to dive into the series.Unfortunately, it went downhill after what was a great opening sense. There was absolutely no sexual tension or question that these two would end up togeth [...]

    21. Really, really loved this book!I just read my first Kris Michaels/Kings of Guardians book and 1/4 of the way thru reading it I went online and bought all other available Kings of Guardian books. I can tell right now that Kris Michaels is going to be one of my favorite authors and I'll be one-click purchasing her new books. Loved Jacob and Tori's story, it's everything I look for in a book.

    22. My saviorWho wouldn't want to be rescued by a sexy mercenary. I thought that Tori was strong and courageous. I thought that Jacob complimented her. I thought that Jacob making her a priority was awesome especially because of his commitment to his job. A great start to a awesome series.

    23. Definitely worth the readI stumbled upon this book but am happy I did. It is isn't your typical girl and guy fall in love and then have have to deal with cheating or mistrust. This story is solid and captivating from beginning to end. Tori and Jacob will have you had hooked fro!m the beginning.

    24. First book I have read by this author. It was highly enjoyable. I love my insta love books, but I just at times wasnt sure that they had a true deep love, it felt very fast even for an insta love. I do recommend it. I did buy some others in the series excited to see where they lead.

    25. 4.5 StarsGood book! Exciting, suspenseful and interesting! The love story good and family dynamo even better. This was the first in he series and am looking forward to text book!

    26. GreatThis is the first book I've read by Kris Michaels and it won't be my last I can't wait to read Joseph's story. Jacob and Tori's story is full of action, suspense and how true love can change a person's life. I also loved how the story showed how families can love and laugh.

    27. Awesome story!I loved this book! Not only the great romance aspect, the action of the war was well written. I usually skip over fighting scenes, but I couldn't do it with this story!

    28. Jacob and Tori. I didn’t like the insta-love. I mean really? There was absolutely zero get to know you. I loved the back story leading up to their meeting it was sweet. Loved the other brothers but does everyone have to fall in love on the ranch? Even mom and Dad?

    29. A Must ReadLove the characters and how the bond between two families grow more throughout the whole story. Can't wait to read more this series.
