Release Blitz: Code Name: Genesis by Sawyer Bennett

Code Name: Genesis (Jameson Force Security, Book #1)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: May 7, 2019


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 once 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 certain—no matter how hard he tries to convince himself otherwise, Joslyn still has his heart.

Review by Trinette Dungee

Our bond was forged twelve years ago, and I had once thought it was broken. It isn’t. It was only put on ice. Now, it’s been thawed and has since heated to nuclear proportions. 

Twelve years ago, he was hired as her bodyguard and broke the cardinal rule by getting involved with his client. Not only did he get involved, he fell in love; but when Joslyn just up and left him to pursue her career, Kynan McGrath was broken, not that he would ever admit it. To purge her from his mind he indulged in meaningless relationship and focused on his career. Now Joslyn Meyers is back, needing Kynan’s protection. 
Joslyn Meyers never imagined that she would be betrayed by the man who claimed to love her. Taking her wounded heart, she left Kynan McGrath behind and moved on with her life. Fast forward twelve years, she’s made it big with all the fame and fortune one could hope to achieve; but with fame and fortune comes consequences. When Joslyn is attacked in her home by a stalker, she flees to Las Vegas to the one person she knows can protect her. 

Twelve years is a long time to be apart and, one would think, more than enough time to get over your first true love but Kynan and Joslyn are anything but over each other. Each is confused about the way things ended with them. Joslyn believing Kynan cheated on her and Kynan believing she chose her career over him. Both being deceived at the hands of Joslyn’s mother. When the truth comes out it takes no time for the fires within in them to ignite and for whatever reason, I don’t know, but one of the hottest sex reunions takes place. It wasn’t raunchy or wild or anything like that, it was just the way he came to her and all that pent-up aggression. He came and took and she gave. Although what Kynan did afterwards was a dick move….it was hot as hell!!
He gazes at me, a contemplative look I think might spell the beginning of a deep conversation. God, do we have stuff to talk about. But then he’s gone. Slipping easily out of me. Rolling right off me. Waling right out of my room as he zips up his pants, and he’s just…gone.

Total DICK move! However, I still love Kynan. What I loved most about Kynan, was his ability to show his feelings. He let it be known that Jos back in his life upset his rhythm but knowing what he now knows, his world is turned upside down and he’s actually okay with it. 
It was hard disentangling myself from Joslyn, our relationship having become suddenly complicated beyond understanding. Within a matter of moments, everything I thought I’d know about her changed.

With the mistakes and misunderstandings behind them Kynan is even more determined to catch Joslyn’s stalker. Having just recently taken over his company from Jericho, Kynan is also in the midst of building his team. While he still has Rachel (Wicked Choice – her story with Bodie) on his team; enter three new recruits…Cruce, Bebe, and Saint. With is team in tact Joslyn is everyone’s main priority.

The chemistry between the two characters was perfect. The connection to them was immediate. Okay, so there is a prequel to Kynan’s and Jos’ story, “Wicked Force”. Being the Brainiac that I am, I  didn’t really get that I was reading a prequel until I was just about done (don’t ask, it was a long week).  I highly suggest reading the prequel, it helps things fall into place a bit easier. Reading it will definitely help you appreciate their chemistry. 
Jos seems to be a little slow in accepting that she and Kynan are meant to be but Kynan seems to know from the moment they are reconnected.

You’re it for me, Jos. It was always only ever you. And here you are again-mine-and I’d be a fucking fool to let you go.

I’m always afraid when I start a new Sawyer book that’s linked to the Wicked Horse Series. I mentally ask myself, “Is this the book that will leave me unsatisfied? The book that doesn’t quite live up to the others?” Well the answer to that question is a big FAT “NO”. I love the way Sawyer links the Wicked Horse but at the same time gives you a totally different story. I’ve done my usual stalking each new recruit these will have their own stories coming; but what really put a smile on my face and hopefully will put one on yours too, is this last little tid-bit:

If you’re doing some active recruiting, I’ve got someone you might be interested in.”  “Oh yeah?” “His name is Malik Fournier. He’s finishing up an enlistment in the U.S. Marine Corps now. 2D Recon.” “I’m always interested in someone with w Special Forces background. Solid guy?” “The best,” Cruce replies. “He did a temporary detail at the White House and got to know the president pretty well. His brothers are professional hockey players. Lucas and Max Fournier, who play for the Carolina Cold Fury.

That’s right looks like we may just get a taste of another Hot Fournier Brother.
