#1 HIS Desire 
(5 Stars)

HIS Desire was one of those books that had me feeling like I was watching a movie, not reading a book. It was really good, and dragged me in pretty much straight away. It was like watching a really good thriller, where you don’t even want to pause it to go pee it’s that good, and when you find out who is behind it all... I had no clue whatsoever it was who it was.

Well written, great characters that had some depth to them, and a nice storyline to go along with the romance that was happening between the two main characters. I’m glad the next book in the series is already out anyway, because I’m eager to dive into that one.

As for the story, it’s about FBI Agent Kate Ross and HIS (Hamilton Investigation & Security) leader, Jesse Hamilton. Kate is Jesse’s brother AJ’s partner, and Jesse was hired privately to help with a case that Kate and AJ were working on. Throughout the whole thing though, Jesse had absolutely annoyed Kate to no end, undermining her at every turn and getting her furious with him. Once the case is over though, he doesn’t have to pretend to not like her anymore and his true feelings start to show through. This is stuff that happened before the book though iykwim, and HIS Desire starts just as they are wrapping up their case.

When Kate goes on a night out shortly after the case has wrapped, she sees Jesse, and despite trying her hardest to avoid the infuriating but gorgeous man, an incident ends up with him walking her home. From there we discover a hitman is after one or both of them, and what follows is the FBI and the HIS team trying to fend off the many attempts on the victim’s life, while also trying to figure out just who is after them, who is it they’re actually after and why?

I really enjoyed this book. The action, drama and suspense was awesome, the sexy times were hot and I just really liked it. I give HIS Desire 5 stars. 

#2 HIS Choice
(5 Stars)
This time we have AJ’s story. He’s headed down a dark path, quitting the FBI and now working as an enforcer for “The Magician”; the drug lord of Baltimore, feeling like this is the life he deserves after what he did. However, after a certain snooping, hot little reporter catches him in the act of one of his assignments, she puts a target not only on her head, but on his too.
Megan has gotten herself assigned to the story of trying to figure out who The Magician is. If she manages to find out the identity of The Magician, then not only will it be the big story she desires, but it will also help her find out what happened to her brother, a fellow reporter who disappeared after working on the same assignment.
Omg these two were just a great couple to read about. I couldn’t even tell you just what it is about them and this story that I liked, it all just worked. The suspense. The drama. The sexy times. The reveal of the Magician’s identity. How it ended. I really enjoyed it all. I give His Choice 5 stars and can’t wait to read book 3.

#3 HIS Return
(4.5 Stars) 

In books one and two of the HIS series, we found out that the Hamilton family had a foster brother, Jake. They took Jake in when he was 10 years old, and he and AJ became best friends, as close as brothers, and although Senator Hamilton (the patriarch) never adopted Jake, he was still classed as part of the family and was treated as such. We also found out though that he had been missing for 4 years since AJ threw him out after finding him in bed with his “baby” sister, something that weighed heavy on AJ’s conscience and made him act the way he did in his book, the second book in this series: HIS Choice. Jake also happens to be Emily’s daughter Amber’s father.
This is all stuff we found out as back story in the previous books (In book one Jesse was upset he couldn't find Jake, and book two AJ was still upset he drove his best friend, someone his sister loved, away) and this book starts with Jake, having been undercover in a terrorist cell for the FBI for the past 4 years, getting rescued by his brothers just as he’s about to be killed live on the internet, after being captured and tortured for months. He needs time to recover before he sees Emily, and apart from telling him that Emily left Baltimore to go work in New York, he doesn’t find out anything more about her.
The only sister of the family, Emily Hamilton had been in love with Jake since she met him when she was just 6 years old. To the brothers she was their cute, but annoying, little sister who kept telling Jake she was going to marry him one day when she was grown up. She’d even tried enticing a reaction out of him when she was 16 but, despite the desire she saw flash in his eyes, he didn’t react and so she waited. She knew his issue was her age, he was 4 years older than her after all, and so she waited until midnight, the night she turned 18 to try again. That night resulted in her daughter Amber, but it didn’t work out quite how she imagined and once AJ found them together, he chased Jake away, leaving her behind and he never came back.
Unable to handle the memories of Jake, Emily takes a now 3 year old Amber and heads to New York to make a life for them now she is a qualified accountant. However, Emily discovers a possible scam going on at her work, but when she tries to do the right thing and report it, things suddenly get very dangerous. When Amber is kidnapped, and someone comes for Emily, she arrives home scared out of her mind but with an unexpected saviour, literally sitting on her doorstep… Jake.
From there it’s a story of getting Amber back, keeping her and Emily safe, finding out just who is after them and what is it they want? All the while, Emily has to deal with Jake’s return and introducing him to the daughter he didn’t even know he had. It doesn't help matters that one of the first things Jake says is him telling her they are getting married. No one tells a Hamilton what to do and how can she trust he's asking her because he loves her, and not just because he thinks it's the right thing to do because of Amber?
Jake has to come to terms with the fact that none of his brothers told him he was a father during the time he was recovering, and his boss, someone who knows the whole family, knew all about it and didn’t say a word for the past 4 years. He wants Emily, he always did and has thought of no one else for the past four years. The night that created Amber, he thought it was a dream, so to be woken by his best friend furious with him, and Emily looking devastated, naked in his bed, had him running away, unable to face the family he loved. He's back now though, he's not going anywhere and Emily will be his, just like she always should have been, but how will he get her to believe him and trust him when she feels he abandoned her after the night they spent together?.
This was a good story, more drama than action like the first two, but still very enjoyable and the last few chapters… wow, some shocking, tearjerker moments had me welling up. A proper OMG moment. I can’t wait to read book 4 and give HIS Return 4.5 stars.

The Boxset as a whole I will give 5 stars as I've really enjoyed each individual book and would definitely recommend it.
