Stand & Deliver
Book 5, Men of Haven
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by, taking what they want, always watching each other’s backs and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce
Security expert Beckett Tate has met his match in colleague Gia Sinclair. He longs to run his hands over each and every one of her lush curves. She’s wicked smart and wicked hot. He’s given her time to get used to the idea of “them,” but her time is up and he’s ready to go all in on claiming what’s his.
Despite her love of all things girlie, Gia’s no typical Southern belle. She’s built her skills and reputation in a field normally dominated by men, and now she has a kick-ass career she loves. She certainly doesn’t need a man to take care of her—especially not one who’s pure alpha. Still, Beckett’s the one man who can satisfy the desires she’s hidden under her tough exterior, and she’s hooked.
Letting Beckett take the lead in the bedroom comes naturally to Gia—not constantly proving herself to him professionally is more of a struggle. And when someone attacks her character and career, Gia and Beckett will have to find a balance: her willingness to let go just a little, with his trust in her abilities and his deep, primal need to protect his woman.

Quite possibly my fav of the series!!
***5 ‘#TeamHaven’ Stars***
I didn’t think it was possible.
I didn’t think that any book coming after Tempted & Taken could best it, or at least push it to the side so that it could share the same spot.
But I was wrong.
I’m woman enough to admit that Ms. Morgan did just that, not only with Stand & Deliver as a whole, but with Beckett & Gia making Knox & Darya scootch over a bit so they can share the top spot as my favorite couples of the series. Because they were kinda everything, just like the book as a whole was. It was filled with sweet and swoon worthy, lots and lots of smexy, a good dose of suspense and a whole bunch of heart.
Gia I LOVED upon first meeting her a few books ago. Fierce, independent, sassy and with a good dose of snark. This woman holds her own in a world where being a woman is difficult, but she hustles and loves what she does. But getting to see behind the armour she wears just solidified why I adore her.
Beckett is simply all kinds of alpha AF nummyness. Protective, observant and all kinds of dominant (but only in the best of ways). I’ll admit I didn’t expect to adore him as much as I ended up adoring him, but his honor and honesty were just as much a drug as his tenacity when he picked a target.
I thoroughly enjoyed Gia and Beckett’s journey to their HEA. It had it’s bumps in the road as they worked out and through their issues, but they did it as mature adults. The mutual respect they had for each other and how much they truly appreciated every facet of the others personalities made this a fun read...and the smexy? Nuclear. But how couldn’t it be when two alpha personalities collide? In the end though, they fit.
I know I shouldn’t be surprised that I loved and devoured this baby, but one never knows, especially when the last book you read in the series knocked your socks off. The suspense aspect was very well done, though I did figure out at least the ‘who’ behind it all, but finding out all that went into the crazy? Now that was an experience. And then there are the members of Haven. This one, for me, really showcased the bonds each of the crew have with each other and brought that family vibe out in spades. I say it every time, but Ninette and Sylvie are AMAZING, I want to be them when I grow up. And I loved hanging with with all the men, women and kids of Haven and most definitely cannot wait to get my hands on Axel’s book!
