This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.
Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.
With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.
With danger around every corner, Talia needs help. Shane, her brother’s best friend, is in the bodyguard business and plans to protect her. But when feelings from their youth come to light will Shane be able to protect her and fall in love at the same time or will he walk away once she is finally safe. With a quick action filled storyline and beautifully written characters once again a Carly Phillips does not disappoint.
This was a terrific read. I could not put it down. It was fast moving and the characters were interesting and had a great backstory. Talia is a scientist for a pharmaceutical company that she found a breakthrough medication that others don’t want her to have so she needs protection which brings her bac to Shane, her brothers best friend and her crush from their childhood, who is a bodyguard for McKay-Tagart. When they go on the run they find out they both still have chemistry and both decide to just have what time they have together. But somehow whoever is after Talia they keep finding them. There is always something being going on in this book. Thee was so many twists and turns and the ending was great. Carly Phillips did not disappoint in this book. I highly recommend this read.
Cross Over Heaven
This is one of the novella’s in the new crossover series by Lexi Blake and six other awesome authors. I was very excited to see some of my favorite authors and characters come to life together. It amazes me how this can be done and seem so normal. It helps blur my reality even more!!!
Talia was the nerdy book worm in high school with the cool brother and friends. Shane was one of those cool friends...Captain of the football team, star athlete, chick magnet...The one chance she had with him, her innocence and shyness pushed him away. Now she won’t!!
Shane has had a pretty exciting life...Never did he think someone like Talia would come back into his life, especially needing his help. Marriage had jaded him to relationships. It just wasn’t his thing right now. But could Talia change that? And could he keep her safe long enough to figure it out?
Fun, quick read with familiar characters all over. Do yourself a favor and pick up the entire crossover collection. Then if you don’t know one of the authors, you will....lots of good reading ahead.
