Book Review: Into the Fury (BOSS, Inc. #1) by Kat Martin

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.


I believe that this is my first Kat Martin book but I know that it won't be my last! I was so excited to start reading this one because I've been on a bit of a "bodyguard book" binge lately. This one most certainly did not disappoint and I think it may be my favorite so far this year. Or ever, actually. 

This story has a lot of layers to it. That wasn't something that I was expecting. It was very deep ... there were quite a few different story-lines going on at the same time and while that bogs down a novel more often than not, it didn't this time. It only added to the drama that was happening between Val and Ethan and the bad dude(or dudette). I'll be honest, I wasn't a fan of Val at first. Not as a character but as the heroine of a novel. She seemed so ... meh ... at first. I just didn't get it. But a few chapters in, I got it. And then I loved her and couldn't wait to see what would happen next. She's a pretty interesting character and I loved how strong and independent she was. There did come a time when that strong woman started changing into this wimpy girl and while I wanted to get irritated with the character change especially since I was so fond of the almost superwoman complex she seemed to have, I just couldn't. The author wrote it so that it seemed like it was a natural progression and it was okay.

Ethan. Oh, he was a bit of a mess. In a good way! I loved how he had this semi-screwed-up life and was trying his damnedest to fix it. He was actually more patient than I would have been. I would have lost my shit over his issues long ago. His character was strong and masculine and ruggedly handsome ... just what I wanted to read about. A man's man. I loved getting to know him and experiencing the ... tests ... that he was put through. It was actually kinda sweet the way that Val made him squirm. It made him that much more endearing. 

I enjoyed the suspense aspect of the book. There were quite a few twists and turns that I hadn't expected in there. I did pick out the bad guy pretty early on but while I was so sure at first that I was right, the author made me question myself more than once and by the end I was still surprised. 

I liked the secondary stories that were going on also because it amped up my excitement for the next book ... which I have to have because it's about Meg and Dirk!! Great book and an awesome introduction into what is probably going to be one of my favorite series.
