Years ago, they were in love. She was an up-and-coming superstar and he was the devilishly handsome security professional hired to keep her safe. They fell hard and fast, no matter how they tried to resist one another. But not everyone around them was happy about their relationship, and a string of lies and deceit destroyed what they oce had.

Having just taken the helm of a nationally renowned protective services company, Kynan McGrath is looking to rebrand and revamp his career. The newly crowned Jameson Force Security is moving from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the mountainous steel town of Pittsburgh, and the last thing Kynan has time for is to deal with his past.

More than a decade has passed since their split, but even a bruised and battered heart remembers its first love. So when Joslyn Meyers comes to him for help, Kynan reluctantly agrees to keep her safe from a terrifying stalker who keeps threatening her life.

As the danger they face continues to intensify, Kynan realizes he’ll stop at nothing to protect the woman who turned her back on him all those years ago. Because one thing is certainno matter how hard he tries to convince himself otherwise, Joslyn still has his heart.

Kynan bought his buddy's Las Vegas based Security company a little while back. Now he wants to expand the business. He bought a huge 'secret' facility in Pittsburgh to be able to accept more of his beloved 'exciting secret government' contracts.
But before he can get really started with that, his past comes crashing back into his life.
The love of his life is back. Joslyn left him without a word 12 years ago - and he still hates kinda her for it. But she desperately needs his help now.
She's a famous singer/actress and she's got herself a very dangerous stalker ....


OK, first of all ... how do you pronounce Kynan?? Kee-nan? Kigh-nan? Künahn? LOL! I hope for the first!

This is going to be a great new series.
It was exciting and suspensy and mysterious and dangerous and erotic and sad and frustrating.
I hate misunderstandings! How can they be sooo in love and then just accept what someone tells them?
But of course they didn't really know know each other all that well back then - they were in love, but they've only known each other for a number of WEEKS!
Now is the right time for that second chance - if they all survive this stalker business!☺

I really enjoyed reading this - I even cried a few times. Bebe's story is so heartbreaking!
I can't wait to get Cruce and Saint's stories!

A couple tiny things that prevented me from giving five stars - I'll put them in a spoiler thingy
(aka I'll write it in white so you have to move your finger/mouse across the next lines!)
Okay ... Kynan is trying to grow the secret government part of his business and then he goes and appears on national television??? That will come in very handy when he stealthily tries to free a hostage in Venezuela! NOT!
And then the idiotic thing Joslyn did toward the end? Getting a picture and believing the psycho stalker person instead of trying to call the person on the pic or her security people. Yup - we just drive off with the bad guy. Believing something like this didn't destroy the last 12 years of our lives! Grrrr - I wanted to slap my kindle in their faces! That should've been done a bit better - it was just stupid acting and stupid writing. BUT - I really liked the book and I will definitely read the next ones too!

I had some problems with the writing...as with every Sawyer book.
It's Sawyer's and my THING ☺ It's only me who has those problems with her writing. So please don't be worried or just scroll down and don't read the following...
  I have a HUGE AS problem! ☺ You know the AS's I'm talking about? The AS that could/should be exchanged for a SINCE or a BECAUSE or just a comma/dot/pause/whatever.☺ It's a British and or a legal thing (if it's a thing at all!) and it doesn't have anything to do in a modern American book. I really don't want to insult Sawyer. I love her books, but  ... please stop doing it. But pfff who am I to tell her what to do, so just forget I said anything! It doesn't stop her books from being great!

CODE NAME: GENESIS was a very exciting & sexy start to this new romantic suspense series! Run to your nearest amazon for your own sexy British bodyguard - this one is already guarding mine!

ARC received for an honest review

Yes, yes yes!  Finally!  It is Kynan freaking McGrath!

I have been wanting him to find his HEA since we first met him in the Wicked Horse Vegas series, and here he is!

What an intense and wonderful story.  Lost loves finding their way back to each other is always a story I will fall into.

Kynan is just such a kick arse that any woman would fall for him.

I loved so much how he is with Joslyn when she came back into his life.  From IDGAF to ILY, it was wonderful watching our lovelies fall again.

Of course there was some drama and tensions, however they did pretty much work them out like adults - yay!

I also liked that this was not much like the other Sawyer books i have read in the past.  I liked that it was more action packed and takes us away from the sexiness of the Wicked Horse for a while.  I love the Wicked Horse series, however I loved this new tangent.

I am now impatiently waiting for the next Code Name book - please don't make me wait too long.
