From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the This Man series comes a sexy and emotional follow up to her wildly popular standalone romance The Protector

Ryan Willis has spent years in the protection business, a job that requires constant vigilance and quick thinking. His only chance to truly relax is at his secluded cabin in a small town where there are never any surprises. So when Ryan returns after an assignment and encounters a beautiful stranger, he isn't only surprised, he's also instantly intrigued.

Hannah Bright is a breath of fresh air, and Ryan is soon completely consumed, unable to stop from falling for her. As the two grow closer, his instinct tells him something is amiss. Yet nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he starts digging into her past.

Hannah spends her days painting, running her arts and crafts store...and hiding too many secrets. It's why she won't let the ruggedly handsome bodyguard get too close. But their chemistry is undeniable, and Hannah quickly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. He is peace personified, a balm to her battered soul. Yet the gorgeous, captivating man who has swept Hannah off her feet doesn't even know who she really is. And the moment he finds out, both their lives are at risk.

Nikki’s review:

I’m fairly new to this authors writing, but I’m quickly become a huge fan! 

I absolutely LOVED the hero, Ryan, in this book. He was all kinds of alpha and uber protective, but he was also so tender and sweet. He was pretty damn amaze balls, in my opinion.

The heroine, Hannah, really impressed me. She took charge of her life to make it better, but she still had a vulnerable side that so many women who’ve been hurt can relate to. She’s kinda quirky in a fun and cute way. She can sometimes be awkward, but all that just makes her more “real” and likeable.

Neither one of the characters is looking for forever, but from the moment they hit the sheets, everything changes. Their emotions take over and it sometimes got messy. The way Ryan kept pulling Hannah back in when she tried to run was absolutely swoon worthy. I liked the way he made her really look at herself. 

The banter between Hannah and Ryan kept me giggling. Ryan’s 10-year-old daughter was hilarious and kept all the adults on their toes.

This book was sexy and emotional, with just the right amount of suspense. I think I’ll be checking out this authors backlist! 

Rating: 4 Stars (A)
