The hot, tough former Navy SEAL.
The man she’s had a crush on her entire life and now the man pretending to be her lover to keep her safe.
CEO Lainie Madden has her hands full. In charge of a growing tech company, her work and her employees are her life.

But when she starts receiving disturbing death threats and her company’s website gets hit with relentless cyber-attacks, she’s in over her head.
What she never expected was her best friend’s bossy, rugged brother to steamroll in to play her fake boyfriend and very real protector.
Former SEAL and CIA agent Nick “Wolf” Garrick is second in command at Sentinel Security. He’s spent most of his life fighting and protecting others, proving he’s nothing like the ex-con who fathered him.

But when he finds out she’s in danger, it flips a switch inside him. Whatever the risk, whatever it takes, even pretending that their lovers, he’ll protect Lainie and take down the person hunting her.
The more time Lainie and Nick spend together, the more the lines blur. As danger swirls around them, their pretend relationship starts to feel very real. But Nick doesn’t do relationships and Lainie doesn’t want to get hurt again…
** An action-packed standalone romance in Anna Hackett’s new series, Sentinel Security. **
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
I love me a romance with a touch of the forbidden. Throw some danger and a military man into the mix...catnip!
I loved that Lainie wasn't taking the threats coming her way laying down. She was bold and determined to fight. For her company and herself. Now she just had to get her best friend's broody brother to see her point of view. Easier said than done when it came to the stubborn protector. Especially when the chemistry between them could've been cut with a butter knife and the danger kept escalating.
Lainie and Nick's friends-to-lovers romance was as thrilling as it was sweet. There were a few guest appearances that left me pleasantly surprised. And while some parts were predictable, Wolf was a good start to what I'm sure is going to be a fun series.
