Code name treat
I read/listened to this book, the second in this series by Sawyer Bennett. I loved Cruce and Barrett’s chemistry together. They are great and you can’t help but root for them. The twists and turns in the story keep,you riveted and I didn’t want to put this book/audio down. I now have to go and read the first book in the series, I could keep up even though I haven’t read it bit know I am just curios. I highly recommend this read.
Review: Jameson Force Security 2: Code Name: Sentinel
Code Name: Sentinel by Sawyer Bennett is the second standalone book in her Jameson Force Security series. A standalone book in a series of standalones where the stories each build off the other, you can read this without reading the first book, Code Name: Genesis, but why would you want to? Code Name: Sentinel jumped into the action with the threat looming over the President's niece, a highly intelligent, genius-level energy scientist, her current project has made her a target and it is up to Cruce to keep her safe. Even when that means keeping her safe on a luxury private island where they are the only residents. Great world-building and plot - full of action and heat! You just cannot go wrong with a Sawyer Bennett book! Enjoy!
Cruce is a member of the Jameson Force Security team. His latest assignment is to protect the President’s niece. Barrett is a brilliant scientist working on a project that can change the world. Her work is also wanted by a terrorists group. The story is full of action and suspense. It moves along fairly quickly.

Action Packed & Suspenseful
Code Name: Sentinel is the second book in the Jameson Force Security series. In this book we meet Cruce Britton. He is new to The Jameson Group, recently retiring from the Secret Service. Cruce is hired by the current president to protect the presidents niece, Barrett Alexander. Barrett is a really brilliant scientist that is on the brink of making a breakthrough of something to do with fusion energy. Someone doesn’t want her sharing what she knows and they’re after her.
Cruce and Barrett’s relationship starts fairly slowly. Just one man protecting another. But while protecting her on a private island they spend a lot of time together and quickly fall in into bed and in love. I really liked both characters immensely. I enjoyed watching their relationship blossom. And I really like the suspense and action factors of their story. I definitely recommend this book to everyone who enjoys some action and suspense with their romance.
Action Filled Romance
Lots of action and excitement in the newest addition to the Jameson Force Security series. Previous characters from the first book appear, but Code Name: Sentinel can definitely be read as a standalone.
I really enjoyed this protector/forced proximity romance featuring Cruce and Barrett. They had wonderful chemistry and I loved the build up and tension between them. When things finally boil over with them, it was H-O-T!! I could see many of the scenes playing out in my mind like a movie. Parts of the book were a little predictable and others resolved a little too easily, but it didn't diminish my enjoyment. The epilogue left me with a smile on my face and I'm excited to see that Saint's story is next!

Cruce and Barrett
After serving as a former Secret Service bodyguard to the Vice President now President, Cruce Britton has decided to try something new. He accepts a job with Jameson Security and moves to Pittsburgh. But when he’s urgently summoned by the President of the United States, he can’t say no.
Barrett Alexander, niece to the President, is a brilliant scientist working to perfect the formula to provide free energy worldwide. After losing her parents as a teen, her aunt and uncle took her in and treated her as their own daughter. Barrett has spent her entire life focused on work. She doesn’t have time for a relationship. Although Barrett hopes to revolutionize the energy industry, some people don’t want her to succeed. When chatter comes through the President’s office that Barrett may be a target for terrorists, he places a call to Cruce.
Amazing, amazing, amazing. Nothing else to say that would adequately describe this novel. Fast-paced, on the edge of your seat romance! Barrett is a strong, highly educated woman who, with Cruce’s help, learns that work isn’t “everything” in life. I love how supportive, yet firm Cruce is with Barrett. Combustible passion. The ending was twisted and surprising! I loved that I couldn’t figure out the ending, like so many other novels. Sawyer Bennett’s stories are gritty, but romantic. Quite possibly the best novel yet! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
Code Name: Sentinel by Sawyer Bennett is the second book in the Jameson Force Security series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I do recommend reading the first one as well. I LOVED the first book but honestly, this one was out of this world amazing too. Code Name: Sentinel is so addicting, fast paced, and kept me on my toes the entire time.
After being a hero in the secret service, Cruce is now part of the Jameson Force Security. He’s smart, focused, and dependable. So when the president calls in a favor, he can’t say no. He was not expecting his entire life to change…
I absolutely ADORED Barrett! She is a successful scientist and has been working on a really important formula that can change the world. Problem is, someone doesn’t want it to happen. When she meets Cruce, sparks fly. But he’s only there to protect her...
I loved this story so much! The chemistry between Barrett and Cruce was HOT as hell!! The plot was fantastic and I cannot wait for the next book in the series!
HOLY CANNOLI THE SUSPENSE!
By Samantha B. Sokol
HOLY CANNOLI THE SUSPENSE! After successfully saving the president’s life, Cruce retires to Jameson Force Security for a new adventure. But when the president reaches out on his private account asking for a personal favor, he can only agree, no matter the favor. The favor turns out to be protecting his niece, Barrett, who has been working on a sensitive project, which is brought up on chatter from the country’s enemies. Devoted to her work and not happy with any change in her routine of constant work, Barrett is confused that her uncle would hire private security especially to protect her of all people. Indulging him, Barrett follows along with letting Cruce protect her, not believing in any threat to her life. But when there is an attempted kidnapping right under her nose, Barrett is shocked and realizes the threat and Cruce’s protection. Through protecting Cruce, he is immediately attracted, but is determined to focus on her safety rather than his budding feelings. Going to a safe house of sorts in order to fully protect her, Cruce starts to break Barrett’s shell of living and breathing work, and makes her experience more of life and less obsessing over work, and she decides to act on the increasing feelings towards him. With new insight, she finally cracks the code, and against everyone (especially Cruce’s) wishes, she reaches out to her uncle and her assistant letting them know, and when it leads to a successful kidnapping of Barrett, Cruce does anything and everything he possibly can to get her back and safely. This series from Sawyer just keeps getting better and I can’t get enough! The suspense and romance is off the charts and I thoroughly enjoy her writing. Total sidebar, also partial to this series because I’m born and raised in Pittsburgh, and of course have Pittsburgh Pride! Can’t wait for the next installment in this series!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Wow. What an amazing story. It is unusual for the female lead to go through physical torture, but that is what happened here. Cruce went through mental anguish, but Barrett had to suffer the physical consequences. My only criticism was we didn't see the mental/emotional fallout from the physical abuse. But that could be a book all by itself.
Being related to the president and a brainiac are tough jobs. Barrett has always felt removed from the dangers, but now danger is her middle name. She doesn't know how to have fun and relax, but Cruce will make sure she learns. Cruce is good for her. He loosens her up and yet challenges her. Barrett makes him want more out of life than he thought was possible for him. Everyone else can see they are in love, but they are denying it. Until ...
I am enjoying this series so far. I'm looking forward to the next book to see who falls, for whom and what kind of trouble or danger they get into. Bring on more Jameson Force Security.

This second book in the Jameson Force Security is Cruse and Barrett’s story. A great read with strong capable characters. Barrett is a very intelligent work alcoholic while Cruse is a fierce protector, both feel an instant attraction to each other but resist at first. Code Name: Sentinel is a slow burn sexy romance, with plenty of intrigue, action- packed suspense which makes it highly addictive.
