When wealthy CEO Steve Nolan’s business partner finds out Steve has been sent threatening letters, much to Steve’s chagrin he insists he has a bodyguard. Imagine the CEO’s reaction when the bodyguard is a feisty, determined female . . . . life’s getting interesting!
Steve Nolan finds it difficult to agree to basic security instructions from his beautiful bodyguard. Instead of treating her role seriously he immediately tries to seduce her – not a good move when his life could be on the line! She’s April Porter and has already got a host of problems – her father is having radiotherapy and doesn’t want her to visit, her ex was a rich jerk, she’s had to leave her training to be there for her Dad and now her job is guarding another rich jerk, but boy what a handsome, attractive one! He resents revealing anything about his past that could be pertinent to discovering who he is being threatened by and why so isn’t really supporting April’s attempts to put an end to the threats. As they get to know each other the mutual attraction grows, but so do the threats. Can April keep him – and her heart – safe?
This is a twist on the contemporary romance where the female lead is protecting the male. There are plenty of other twists in the story which starts out slow and builds up to a somewhat climatic ending. It is an easy read, a great story to escape into and, after the slow start, a real page turner as the reader also wants to discover from whom the threats originate. If you enjoy your romance with strong characters and a thread of mystery and suspense, this may well appeal to you.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
