5 out of 5 stars


Heller is about Matilda “Tilly” Chalmers, down on her luck actress who needs a job and stumbles into Heller Security and finds herself a job.  Heller requires his staff to live on premises, which leads to some hilarious moments, as well as some very serious moments with the other characters, Daniel and Niq, who both have their own stories and bear their own scars.  And then there is Heller, probably the most alpha-male I’ve ever read.  I have to admit that at some points, he was a bit overbearing, but to be honest, I was in love with his character, and how he takes care of those in his employ.

Tilly’s relationships with Daniel and Niq are beautiful and her relationship with Heller is hilarious. 

One thing I HATED about this book was I could not figure out where it took place.  It was clearly not in the US, but I couldn’t tell if it was in the UK or Australia (my boss is British so based on the dialogue I could tell it was one of those two countries).  You figure it out in book 2, so I won’t spoil it.

This book has so many laugh out loud moments, starting in the first 50 pages with Tilly’s interview.  I would highly recommend this series, but will warn you that if you don’t like British or Australian slang (or don’t know it), this may not be the series for you.
