Jodi really brought it with this read. I was sucked right back into the world of The Protector and it was fabulous.
This novel was a completely different read from that one and yet it took place in the same world and we ever got a little peek at our favorite couple!
I loved this page after page. Ryan was everything. I loved his personality and really getting to know who he was behind his job. Then we had Hannah. I really felt with Hannah. She is my spirit animal. I loved how free and bright she was. She was everything that I wanted her to be.
Then they got thrown together and it was beautiful. They were explosive without ever trying and even when he world was a little dark in their corner, their feelings shined bright.
Lots of surprises and even more secrets that you don't see coming. I loved this read. I would love another novel with this family of friends but this novel wrapped up perfectly.
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.
