Cease Fire by Marie James Release Blitz

Cease Fire. A Blackbridge Security Novel. Marie James.

Making something off-limits will always make that thing more appealing.

Jules Warren, my sister’s best friend, was no different.

She has been the leading lady in every fantasy I’ve had since I was a teenager.

There was no way I was turning her down when she invited me to her room.

Those fantasies? They had nothing on the real thing.

I was given the weekend to make my dreams come true.

The ramifications, however, will last a lifetime.

Keeping a secret is one thing.

Living with the lies is impossible.

This book is in a series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Kit's story is one that we've seen bits and pieces of before. Kit has held a torch for his sister's best friend since he was a teenager. However, he knows that his sister put rules on her friends to not date the brothers. Now that Kit is in a kick-butt profession and has a family he loves, along with friends he would lay his life down for, when his sister finally finds happiness, he doesn't begrudge her, but he really does still love Jules. He can't help who he loves.

Jules has been part of Beth's family forever. When her mom died, she took solace in Kit's arms but knew that they could never be since Beth – her best friend and Kit's sister – had made her promise not to date her brothers. However, Jules knows that she wants to have a baby. She's been talking with Beth about it. Now, to just pull the trigger. When Beth gets married, Jules sees a perfect opportunity to finally find her happy ever after. But what she ends up getting is a mess of her own making.

As Kit and Jules navigate their newfound relationship, family and friends will have to navigate with them. This is a friends-to-lovers romance that is messy, just like life.

Love might conquer all, but it's not without its speed bumps. Does love make everything worth it? Can Kit and Jules truly ever be happy together?

I can't wait for the next one!

Kit has been in love with Jules, his sister's BFF, since he was a teenager. If you look at his face when she is around, you can tell how he feels about her. Kit is the kind of guy any girl would be happy to have, he is sweet, kind, protective, and sexy as all get out.

Jules has been a part of Kit's family forever. She has been friends with his sister since grade school. She became closer when her mother died many years ago. So it was nothing to see Jules at family dinners on Sundays.

I found it easy to fall for Kit, he was fun, loving, and easy going. As with all of the men at Black Bridge Security. But I didn't like Jules very much, her ideas and ways of going about it were wrong and hurtful. It seems to me she was not trying to hurt anyone but in turn, she ended up hurting the ones who mattered most.

I loved the story overall, just not the way Jules went about it. In the end, it does end well for everyone. And we got a small glimpse of Puff Daddy the foul mouth bird, gotta love that bird.

I love this series and can't wait for the next one, which is Brook's story.



“Three hundred seconds,” he rasps. I grin wider. “Starting now, Jules. You have five minutes to get upstairs and get naked.”
