NIGHT FALL by Susan Sleeman, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

I know I’m in for a great read when I pick up a book by Susan Sleeman, and what a treat to have a whole new series to look forward to. Night Fall is the first book in the Night Hawk Security series, and it’s featuring Aiden Byrd, one of five brothers who have formed their own security team. While each of the brothers has his own set of skills, they all work together well and complement each other. Aiden is a wonderful hero—competent, strong, and protective. Harper Young is a talented Olympic downhill skier who is focused on training and winning her races. I admired her tenacity, drive, and also her ability to remain unpretentious amidst her notoriety. I could almost hear the sizzle between these two main characters while they tried to maintain a professional distance.

As always, Sleeman has written a story with plot twists and turns that kept me guessing to the end. Her expertise in law enforcement and criminal investigation is readily apparent. This is a fantastic start to a new series, and I’m looking forward to what adventures the next book will bring.

BackCover Blurb:

She faces dangerous situations all the time…

Olympic downhill skier, Harper Young, knows what it’s like to look danger in the face. After all, she does it every time she races down a ski slope. She’s fine with that danger and even excels under the pressure, winning Olympic gold. And as a governor’s daughter, she’s familiar with receiving threats from the general public. But when a stalker turns his sights on Harper, she possesses zero skills to protect herself.

But she has no idea what lurks in the shadows.

Former Navy SEAL and ATF Agent, Aiden Byrd of Nighthawk Security is well versed in protection skills and knows the dangers she faces. Problem is, there’s an instant attraction between Aiden and Harper, and as Aiden and the Nighthawk team contract to protect her, he has to fight to remain professional. When the stalker grows bolder and tries to end Harper’s life, Aiden’s only hope in keeping her safe is to deny his feelings. Something that borders on impossible.
