Release Blitz for Sawyer Bennett's Code Name: Revenge (Jameson Force Security #9)

Code Name: Revenge (Jameson Force Security, Book 9) Sawyer Bennett Release Date: April 19, 2022



When Kynan McGrath approached me about joining Jameson Force Security, I jumped at the chance. Just call me Dozer Burney, one half of the genius duo who keeps the team at the forefront of security technology. The move from NASA to Jameson also put me back on the east coast, closer to those who mean the most to me. Jessica Anderson has been my best friend since college. A single mom who found herself mixed up with a dangerous man years ago, she’s been living a safe, quiet life in Miami after helping police put him behind bars. We both knew her safety, and that of her daughter, was reliant on him staying locked up. So when I see an alert that he’s escaped from his maximum security prison, I know where he’s heading to exact his revenge. Now it’s a race against time to get to Jessica before he does. Protecting her with my life is easy, because there’s one thing I’ve never admitted to anyone, not even myself—I have been in love with Jessica Anderson since the day I met her. And if we both make it out alive, I’ll make sure she knows it every day for the rest of our lives.

 Trinette Dungee's 4 Star Review!

Dozer Burney has been in love with Jessica Anderson since they met back in college, but when his best friend beats him to the girl, he takes a back seat. With his friend now gone and Jessica raising their daughter on her own, Dozer stepped in as her best friend and little daughter’s dotting godfather. Now Jessica’s life is in danger and it’s up to Dozer and the rest of the Jameson Force to protect her. It’s also time for Dozer to let his feelings be known. 

From the moment Kylan McGrath has started building his Pittsburgh Team, we’ve known Dozer. He’s always been there in the background, but on everyone’s radar. Finally, this guy gets his story. It’s a story I’ve been waiting for, for a very long time. 

I was so curious as to where Dozer’s story would go because in this series either the hero or heroine was an agent or spy, and an assignment was involved. Dozer nor Jessica is either. Dozer’s a computer-science guy, albeit a super smart NASA computer-science guy, but a computer-science guy non the less. However, Dozer made an assignment and he made it his assignment. 

This was a fast-paced friend’s-to-lovers story and it worked perfectly. It didn’t need to be this long-drawn-out story of a man who lived the life of a loner and discovered he could love. Nope, we already knew Dozer had a big heart. What we didn’t know was he already had his family and his happily-ever-after was right there, he just needed the courage to go after it. He didn’t turn into this “super-saviour”. He was still Dozer. He was still the “nerdy guy”. He just happened to have a few skills and size on his side that worked when he needed to use them. 

I absolutely adore Dozer. I love the way he was written. I love that even though he had an athletic background, his primary personality was that techy guy. Because of the way he’d been described in previous books, I thought it might be hard for me to picture him in a romantic setting, but it wasn’t. While he might have been a big burly type of man, he was something of a teddy bear. Other than the fear that Jessica might not return his feelings toward her, he wasn’t afraid to show his feelings when he needed to. Although he wasn’t a trained special ops guys, he had a little 
knowledge, and he wasn’t afraid to use it.

I didn’t like Jessica as much as I wanted to. While I could appreciate her feeling responsible for Dozer and the Jameson crew being put in the position they were in and her desire to be by Dozer's side, I felt like she was a bit selfish. For a woman who had a little girl to think about, some of her actions were a bit to rash. I think the two of them had amazing chemistry though. 

As usual the Jameson crew rallies around their own and it was great to read/see familiar characters again and see where some of them have progressed in their lives. I really liked the Dozer/Bebe relationship in this book as well. Bebe is still a firecracker and she was there for her best friend without thinking twice. I even appreciated her slight jealousy/annoyance over not being made aware of Jessica’s place in Dozer’s life prior to the danger Jess was in. 

In this book we also get Dozer’s backstory and his relationship with his mom who passed away and his dad, James and Jess’s mom, Claire and of course Jess’s daughter Thea who is the light of Dozer’s life. Like Jess, I wasn’t really a fan of James. I definitely did not appreciate the way he put Dozer and Jess on the spot when it came to them facing their feelings for each other. I mean, yeah it had to be done, but I didn’t like him doing it. 

As I mentioned before, I love the way Dozer was written. I will admit I was a little worried, as in the writing world there’s been so much scrutiny on how black characters are portrayed when written by white authors. I love Sawyer a hundred times more for the way she wrote these characters. There was none of the “stereotypical” language/attitude that is so often used. Other than her physical description of the characters in the beginning you could imagine them to be or look however you want. 

As always, we are introduced to new characters as the stories progress and in Dozer’s story, we are introduced to Kellan McCord. There are certain authors where I don’t read the blurbs/synopsis of their upcoming works if it’s a part of a series. I just know I’ve met the character at some point and often than my interest was piqued, and they’ll have a storyline. I just wait and enjoy the ride when I get their story in my hands. However, for Kellan it was mentioned that he has a girlfriend, so naturally I’m more than a little curious as to how his story’s going to go. Will he find out she’s involved in some nefarious acts? Will she leave him, and a new love interest will surface? Or does she suffer a horrible fate? Can’t wait to see where his story goes.
