When a sexy CEO needs protection…only the best will do.
CEO Steve Nolan is wealthy, successful, and in danger. Now, thanks to his business partner, he has a bodyguard—a rigid, controlled woman with a smoky voice that invites steamy thoughts of rumpled sheets and oh-so-satisfying sleepless nights. So if Steve has to play the game, he’s going to make damn sure he’s in charge of the rules…just as long as no one finds out.
April Porter has met incredibly handsome, high-powered men before. Guys just as smooth, who didn’t take her seriously, and who broke her heart. So she’s just here to do her job and stay focused and professional.
Even if Steve Nolan isn’t just another rich jerk.
Even if the sexual spark between them keeps getting hotter.
And even if protecting his business and his ass(ets) means April could lose her heart in the bargain…
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... ...more

But after a few chapters the story picked up, it turned very interesting and I got engrossed in reading.

What a nice change. We have April who is a body guard for the rich and sexy Steve Nolan. For him it's hard to look at April and not try to seduce her. For her, he is just another rich jerk and she has enough on her plate to handle as it is.
But as the story progresses so does an attraction between... ...more

I enjoyed this bodyguard romance with a twist, since it's the woman that's the bodyguard in this one! April was a strong and convincing character (and she gets some action scenes to prove her mettle) with enough vulnerability to make her a more complex character. Steve comes across as a dedicated... ...more
