Review: Break and Enter by Lori Matthews


Callahan Security is on the brink of disaster. Mitch Callahan pushed his brothers to expand the family business into private security, and their first major client is a complete pain in the ass. It’s no wonder the man has a target on his back, but nothing could prepare Mitch for how seductive his adversary is.

Love hurts. No one knows that better than Alexandra Buchannan, so she uses her talents as a thief to equalize the scales of romantic justice. Your ex still has your favorite painting? Not for long. Alex’s latest job is her biggest challenge yet. Her target just hired a new security company, and the team leader is as smart as he is sexy.

Mitch knows he’s jeopardizing not only this job but the future of Callahan Security. If only he didn’t find Alex so damn irresistible. Soon their game of cat and mouse explodes into a million pieces. Unbeknownst to them, there’s another player in the game, and his intentions are far deadlier. –from Goodreads

My Review:

I’m a little obsessed with Goodreads giveaways right now, but I’m not complaining because I win books like this! The first book in the Callaghan Security series, the story centers around the youngest Callaghan brother. Mitch is an ex-Navy Seal who is trying to prove his ability and worth to his older brothers. He is new to the Callaghan Security team, and his newest client brings all kinds of problems – including Alex.

Alex is hired to steal something from Mitch’s client. However, she didn’t expect to fall for Mitch in the process. And he didn’t think he’d ever let anything interfere with the job. Then he met Alex.

The romance between Alex and Mitch sizzles from their first meeting. They are a well-matched pair. Both are smart, ambitious, clever, and confident. They challenge each other, which I love! On top of that, the chemistry is super hot!

They try to resist each other. After all, neither wants the complications that come with a relationship. Ultimately, Mitch and Alex must decide if they can put their misgivings aside and take a chance on love. It is a risk that could jeopardize everything – including their lives.

This is a steamy romantic thriller that I enjoyed reading. The plot is fast-paced and action-packed, and the characters are interesting and likable. I like the unexpected twists and surprises in the novel. From unexpected moles and betrayals to explosions and attempted murder, this story will keep you on the edge of your seat.


Favorite Parts:

  • strong, independent female protagonist
  • interesting and suspenseful plot
  • super steamy romance


Readers who enjoy sexy romance will love this book. Also, readers who enjoy romantic suspense with a bold and intelligent woman and a hunky alpha male will enjoy this read.
