A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, a P.I.—the men of Brodie Operations Security Service, Inc. are down for the job… Sinners, whores, and sluts beware—your time is at hand: a faceless menace is threatening lingerie models on a cross country tour, and Ethan Brodie is there to defend and protect. Ethan’s learned the hard way that beauty is no substitute for character. So even though Valentine Hart is one of the most breathtaking women he’s ever seen, he’s keeping his hands off and his eyes open. Or that’s what he tells himself. Then one of the models is murdered, and the closer Ethan gets to the answers, the closer he finds himself to Valentine—and the hotter the pressure feels. There’s more to Val—more to the other girls—than he could have guessed. But one is keeping a secret that could kill them all.

Into the Fury is another exciting story from Kat Martin. Fans will be pleased to see the Brodie family again in a new series.
My attention was grabbed by the very first sentence. The book was a fast read with a lot of action, romance, and danger.
The basic story line is: Ethan Brodie takes an assignment working security for a lingerie company that has had ten of its models receive threatening notes. On his first day of the assignment, a particular model catches his eye, as he does hers. When he finds out that this model is a friend of his cousin’s wife, he has the perfect excuse to stick by her side. After one of the models is murdered, Ethan does everything he can to protect Val (the model) and figure out the identity and motive of the killer.
Both Ethan and Val are likable characters. Neither fit stereotypes. Yes, Ethan is an alpha male who wants to possess and protect, but he’s also a loving father and a good man who tries to do the right thing. Val is an atypical model, caring more for animals than material possessions. I really liked that she was able to defend herself instead of just being a wilting flower.
I loved most everything about Into the Fury. There were only a few minor things that detracted from my enjoyment. One thing that bothered me was how the characters kept repeating the reasons why they couldn’t let themselves fall for one another. It got to be a little repetitive and annoying. Another thing is that the book contained my sex-is-not-a-body-part pet peeve (not worth explaining, since I’ve ranted about it so many times before). The last thing that I didn’t particularly like was how the break Ethan got in the case didn’t seem believable. I don’t want to say what it was, because I’d be giving a spoiler. I’ll only say that I didn’t believe that the source of the information would have done what he had done.
I don’t think any of those things warrant taking any stars off my rating. They are just some nitpicky things I made note of while reading the book. I do highly recommend Into the Fury.
Into the Fury is hot, fast-paced, suspenseful, and has a good mystery. If you like romantic suspense with a physically tough male lead with a soft heart and an equally strong female lead, you should give this one a read. It was a great book.
