Cade “Hercules” Thornton is an ex-Marine and soldier of fortune; now he’s the owner of Hercules Security, which provides the best bodyguards in the business. After his leg was crushed and reconstructed, Cade doesn’t do field work anymore – until a challenge is issued to him by wealthy Kate Morgan, who wants her “bookish” grandson protected from a stalker. She insists on having the very best bodyguard available, and that is Cade himself.
Dr. Jude Morgan doesn’t think he needs a “babysitter”. Having come out of a bad relationship, he wants everyone to keep their distance. Sparks fly from the moment they meet, with Jude not believing in the danger and Cade trying to protect a man who doesn’t want to be protected.
Yet the danger to Jude is real, and Cade is the only thing standing between him and an increasingly more terrifying stalker. Cade’s protective feelings for his client become something more, while Jude begins to realize that his brawny, neo-Viking protector is a man unlike anyone he’s ever known. Yet as Cade and Jude grow closer, so does the danger.
Cade will stop at nothing to protect Jude, but Jude’s stalker is determined to get his man – even if he has to kill Cade Thornton to do it.
Ari McKay’s The Bigger They Come, the first in the Herc’s Mercs series was a quick-paced, intriguing read. Dr. Jude Morgan didn’t know he was in need of a bodyguard- his ex going from bat sh.. crazy boyfriend to stalker- until his grandmother hired Cade Thornton, owner of Hercules Security.
I adored both men. All the supporting characters. And the start of a wonderful series. The Bigger They Come was well-written and moved at a nice pace. I was pulled into the story from the first moment I met the two, and even more so when Kate, Jude’s grandmother was in the storyline. I appreciated that their relationship moved along without the typical, jump into the sack, even though we’ve only known each other twenty-four hours. The buildup and sexual tension added to the depth of the storyline.
Herc’s Mercs grabbed me and I look forward to the ride.
