Ulterior Motives

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Despite being wealthy, Ellie Manchester has had a rough life. She witnessed her mother’s murder at age seven, but didn't see the man responsible. Plagued by nightmares, and a drunken father, Ellie has grown up to believe that she can only rely on herself. When her father dies in an accident, she becomes an heiress of sorts… and a target.

Tanner Paxton was a tough and tumble kid who turned his penchant for getting into fights into a successful security business. He loves his work but doesn't have time for much else, especially relationships. When he’s hired to protect Ellie, against her will, he not only finds himself embroiled in dangerous chaos, but falling in love with the most stubborn and beautiful woman he’s ever met. But love may be a weakness that can get them both killed.

3.5 Stars!

Ulterior Motives is a romantic suspense that has you questioning who did it throughout the story. Ellie witnessed her mothers murder when she was a child. Her father never gave up looking for her mothers murder and ended up dieing in a plane crash just as he got close to the truth. A close family friend felt the timing of her fathers accident was too suspicious and hires a bodyguard for Ellie without her knowledge. This is where Pax comes in. He has to try and protect Ellie without telling her what he really does. Pax implements himself into Ellie's life and they both start falling for each other. Of course Ellie finds out and pushes Pax away opening herself up to danger.

This story was predictable but not predictable. I had suspicions from the start who was behind everything and I was partially right but was still surprised with what I missed.

ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
