Aug 09, Bethany rated it really liked it. This novel was actually the very first book I have ever read in the lesfic genre and I'm so very happy that this one made my reading list! I'm so glad I did! This whole series is well-written, full of sexual tension, and very likeable MCs who actually seem like real people.
You need to do yourself a favor and read this This novel was actually the very first book I have ever read in the lesfic genre and I'm so very happy that this one made my reading list! You need to do yourself a favor and read this one for yourself! Looking back on this 6 months later, I'm so thankful to Radclyffe and BSB publishing for opening up my eyes to a whole new genre and for daring to publish novels that actually have MCs who live, love, and exist in the LGBT universe just like me!

I really enjoyed this book, I was specifically looking for a lesbian fiction book which is how I discovered Radclyffe and I am glad I did. The book that captured me from the start and I struggled to put it down, great writing and a great story. Overall, great book and I would highly recommend. Nov 23, Megzz rated it it was ok Shelves: vanilla , boring , broody-badasses.
I have to be honest, I don't understand why this one has an average rating of more than 3. It's one of the most boring novels Radclyffe has written. There is such a lack of feelings in this book. Radclyffe describes what Cam and Blair feel for each other, but it's mainly lust and even that is not translated well in the characters' actions. As for romantic feelings, where do they come from? There is nothing intimate between the two, except for one personal conversation when Blair sketches Cam, bu I have to be honest, I don't understand why this one has an average rating of more than 3.
There is nothing intimate between the two, except for one personal conversation when Blair sketches Cam, but it still remains very superficial.
There is also a lack of characterization: what really happened with Cam's lover? We could also use some more details on how Blair struggles with her lack of freedom. I don't see them, anywhere. It's all words, and they don't work to make a believable and touching story. Blair and Cam are not even likable characters. Blair is an arrogant bitch throughout basically the whole book, and Cam is a boring robot. I'm also tired of the butch detective who's closed off and falls for the femme she is supposed to protect in lesbian romance novels.
How about some originality? I read so many books of this genre and this plot sounded so familiar I had to read the summary of this one 5 times in order to remember I hadn't read it before. I won't read the rest of the series. Feb 23, Gaby LezReviewBooks rated it really liked it.
Aug 08, Justina Johnson rated it it was amazing Shelves: f-f , sexually-explicit , intrigue. This is the flat-out magnificent opening book for currently a nine volume series. The two main women are complex, intriguing, with tour-de-force presence, skills, and sensuality. I get to be shoulder to shoulder with the secret service team guarding the daughter and only child of the president of the United States. Additionally the new head of this team feels unceremoniously demoted after being placed on this assignment, as it is a bit of a radical shift from her previous posting and the track s This is the flat-out magnificent opening book for currently a nine volume series.
Additionally the new head of this team feels unceremoniously demoted after being placed on this assignment, as it is a bit of a radical shift from her previous posting and the track she appears to be on. Nevertheless it becomes rather obvious why it is given to the secret service agent in question.
Oh my goodness, but these adversaries have no idea what is about to befall them. Smoothly spectacular! Cameron Roberts, often referred to as Cam, is a senior-level operative whose career has been on the investigative side of the secret service. Now she is moving into what is considered the protective side of the service. Anyhow, she quickly recognizes her previous qualifications are needed in spades to successfully manage this particular job and the astounding list of pitfalls and cleverly manipulated obstacle courses that must be overcome.
Hovering over all the challenges in front of Cam is the fact that she recently lost her lover in addition to suffering a major leg injury. Nonetheless, Cam is nothing if not supremely proficient and could be on a direct track to an assistant director's position if she ever learned to play the internal politics game, which many in the know think is highly unlikely.
It said a great deal to me that when the previous team is introduced to Cam, she more than impresses them all and her second in command breathed a sigh of relief when he clearly senses a whole new order of things were about to be put into action.
From my point of view, Cam is a marvel. Splendidly sensational! Blair Allison Powell is the daughter of the president. Previously her father was the vice president of the United States and governor of New York. She has been in a fishbowl under constant observation from multiple quarters for years and has become a consummate escape artist losing her protection teams with a high degree of efficiency. She is also a professional artist whose talents are well known and respected.
She is managed by a noted individual in the field and long-standing friend. Her sexual predilections are understood, but every attempt possible is made to keep that bit of data out of the press so as to be less problematical for her well known father. Blair does little to assist in the preferred cover-up, adding another dimension to the long list of complications she provides for the secret service.
I adore Blair for her signature feistiness. Moreover, the deliciously rocky road resembling one of Blair's kick boxing competitions places the two main women in one of the most highly entertaining contentious competitions I have had the pleasure to read. Stunningly sublime! I unquestionably recommend everyone hop on this remarkable roller coaster ride.
Surpassingly special! View all 5 comments. Oct 15, Jay Odon rated it it was amazing Shelves: lesbian-fiction , mystery , action , radclyffe , romance. Ok so this was my first outing with Radclyffe and I don't know why I haven't read her before.
I think the name was throwing me off, kind of sounded like the books were written a long time ago but I was pleasantly surprised. I fell in love with this series in first couple of pages. The richness of the characters mixed with the ever surging storyline.
Above All, Honor

Cam's duty is her life and the only thing that keeps her from self-destructing under the unbearable weight of her own deep personal tragedy. However, she hasn't counted on the fact that her reluctant protectee will do anything in her power to escape the watchful eyes of her protectors, including seducing the agent-in-charge. Both women struggle with long-hidden secrets and dark passions as they are forced to confront their growing attraction amidst the escalating danger drawing ever closer to Blair. From the dark shadows of rough-trade bars in Greenwich Village to the elite galleries of Soho, each must balance duty with desire and, ultimately, chose between love and honor. By Radclyffe.
I read a lot about this story on other websites, so I decided to see what the fuss was about. Even though this story screams sex, it was moderately entertaining. I'm not too fond of Blair, but I could Romantic fiction is not generally my genre of choice, but given that Radclyffe is a popular lesbian fiction writer, I thought it was necessary to give this a try. Radclyffe has some great plot ideas
