Welcome to Sniper 1 Security. Wait for Morning is the first in a new series called Sniper 1 Security. This series will focus around two families that are in the private security business. This book is different for Nicole as it’s the first for her in the romantic suspense genre. For readers, they will find the normal Nicole Edwards style of writing, with a nice mixture of excitement, suspense and her erotic touches where needed. For the die-hard Nicole Edwards fans, they will see a bit less of the erotic, but when it's present it will set your e-reader on fire!
Trace Kogan will go to any length to protect those who need protecting. That is the business he is in; the business his father, Casper Kogan, started with Bryce Trexler more than thirty-five years ago. Trace spends day and night eliminating threats to clients, so when the danger hits too close to home, he won’t let anything come between him and the woman who desperately needs his help.
His fear… the physical reaction he has to Marissa may pose a bigger danger than the ghost that they find themselves up against.
Marissa Trexler has spent the last twelve months of her life in hiding, tucked away in one safe house after another for her own protection. The threat to her is real even if the reason is still unknown. Strangely, whoever is after her seems to find her no matter where she goes, leading her family to believe it’s an inside job.
So when the decision is made that Trace will provide personal protection, she can’t say no, even if being close to him adds another level of danger… and this one is to her heart.
I freaking LOVE Nicole Edwards.
I will forever scream that I LOVE Nicole Edwards from the rooftops. Here we go again, Nicole has created another cast of characters that I am dying to get to know, not to mention we get a little surprise at the end. Possibly a cross over novel with other characters... (WINK: You will have to read Wait for Morning to find out what I am talking about.)
In Wait for Morning we are introduced to the Trexler and Kogan families. The two families are VERY close and have formed Sniper 1 Securities. The families are not only business parties but best of friends. The Trexler and Kogan children have grown up together. Most of them very close in age. They are more like siblings rather than friends. The only problem is, Marissa Trexler has been in love with Trace Kogan since was fourteen years old.
Trace Krogan is Marissa's older brother, Clay's best friend who is two years older than her. Marissa has been crushing on Trace for as long as she can remember. Her teenage crush has turned into so much more. She refused to be rejected by Trace, yet she is pulled to him. She wants him.. she needs him. Little did she know the feelings were mutual.
For years, Trace has been keeping Marissa at a distance. At first, he looked at her as a little sister, until his feelings for her changed. He no longer looked at her as a sibling, rather he looked at her as the beautiful woman she was. Trace has been struggling with his feelings for Marissa for years. He built a wall of armor around him trying to resist her, trying to avoid being alone with her.
When Marissa's life is in danger, Trace demands to be the one to protect her. He knows that her brothers are perfectly capable of doing the job, but his heart won't allow that to happen. The Trexler and Kogan siblings' have known that Trace and Marissa have feelings for each other for years. It was evident. The way the two of them avoided each other, avoided contact with each other. The chemistry was off the charts with these to. It was only a matter of time before Trace would pull his head out of his ass and follow his heart. Marissa brings out something fierce in Trace. Feelings that he is determined to keep at bay. Her life is in danger and there is no time for him to fall victim to his desire for Marissa.
Marissa was going to be the death of Trace. Trace has always managed to keep a wall up between the two of them. Little by little, Marissa is removing that wall brick by brick. Marissa was everything Trace wanted and everything he had denied himself. Sometimes life has a way of playing tricks on us, throwing the ones we love right at our feet. When Marissa's life was threatened once again, Trace can't handle not being the one to protect her. She isn't just an assignment, she is so much more.
Somehow, Marissa Trexler had managed to sneak her way into his heart, into his soul, and he'd welcomed her with open arms, ignoring everything else. ~ Trace KoganThe question was, how long was Trace going to be able to hold out? How long would Trace be able to avoid Marissa? How long would he be able to fight his feelings for her? Was he strong enough to continue to fight his feelings for her, or would be lose that battle?
When Marissa agrees to have Trace protect her, she knows things are going to change. She welcomes it. She is tired of fighting her feelings for Trace. Marissa is hoping that Trace will open up to her and not be so closed off. Marissa sees the effects she has on Trace, and takes advantage of every opportunity she is given. Will she use this to her advantage? After everything Marissa has been through, will she trust Trace to keep her safe? Can Trace keep Marissa safe? Will Marissa get her life back, or will she forever fear for her life?
I absolutely LOVED the connection between Trace and Marissa. I loved seeing him struggle with his feelings. Of course, Trace is an alpha male, I would expect nothing less from Nicole. In Wait for Morning, Nicole introduces us to a ton of new characters, which we know we will definitely get more off. She lined it up perfectly for how each one will get their own novel. My only complaint is, I WANT THE NOVELS NOW !!!! I am dying to see where each of their story lines go.
Wait for Morning will have you turning the pages quickly, as you will be dying to know what happens next. Readers, play close attention to detail in this book. Nicole gives us a lot of new characters in this book. The Trexler and Kogan families are BIG. There are a lot of them, not to mention the HOTTIE Trace's close friend, Zachariah Tavoularis better known as "Z". Talk about WHOAZERS !!!!
Wait for Morning is a definite 5 star rating for me!!!!
