Bedroom games are fine … but I need a woman who won’t play with my heart.
After years in the military, I’ve faced down a lot of things, and there’s not much I shy away from. Except relationships. Because when you catch your wife in bed with another man, that tends to sour even the most hardened man against women.
When I was hired to keep surveillance on a woman with a checkered past, I went into the job anticipating the worst. But what I found was a woman who turned my head. Who made my blood heat and my body burn. A woman who made me feel alive again.
A woman who was nothing like what I expected, but everything I wanted. A woman who, it turned out, needed my protection. And wanted my touch.
And as the world fell out from under us, and everything I thought I knew shifted, there was only one reality I could hold onto—that the more I got to know her, the more I wanted her.
But if I’m going to make her mine, I’ll have to not only keep her safe, I’ll have to prove to her that I’ve conquered my own fears and doubts. That I’m done looking into the past, and that all I want is a future—with her.
The alpha male, Cayden, has trust issues. Gracie is being stalked and needs Cayden's help. There are steamy scenes, suspenseful events and true friendships themed in this short book.
Too short to develop actual characters and emotional connection. The plot wasn’t good and didn’t require much writing.
Romance & Danger!
“Trust me when I say that most illusions about the institution of marriage and the concept of fidelity disappear like smoke when you walk in on your naked wife with her feet in the air and another man’s face between her legs.” ~ Cayden Lyon
To say Cayden Lyon has a low opinion of women’s faithfulness would be an understatement. Burned by his wife, the security specialist/PI is eager to take on cases where he can expose infidelity. When he is hired to find proof that Gracie Harmon is cheating on her fiancé, everything he thinks he believes is knocked off kilter. Finding himself drawn to the curvy model, Cayden begins to realize Gracie is not the person his client painted her to be, but she could be so much more to him if he can can get past his trust issues.
This suspenseful quick read is second in the Blackwell-Lyon series. Full of romance & danger, it’s an engaging story from start to finish. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I’m also really looking forward to Connor & Kerrie book next.
