Handsome and tough Jake Tanner, a veteran and the owner of a successful security firm, never lets his past hold him back. Despite his prosthetic hand and foot, women swoon over him—and with him between the sheets. Yet Jake feels bored and restless…until he’s hired to protect a beautiful writer whose life is in terrible danger.
Self-imprisoned by the fear of the anonymous stalkers who threaten her life, video-game writer Natalie Beck now only dreams of the world outside her pink-bedecked apartment. Trusting people again is off-limits. But the more time Jake spends with her, the more his professional commitment evolves from simple duty to scorching desire. While deeply sensual sparks ignite between the two, the danger outside circles closer. Will Jake’s intense devotion be enough to save Natalie? Or will she turn away from the one man willing to do anything to save her?
I have to be honest, I’ve been sitting on writing a review for this one. I liked the book, the story was solid, characters were very likable, very real. Romance, however, took a backseat to all this. Did I like it? Yes, definitely. It worked well for this story. I didn’t get the level of romance I expected before I started reading this, but while reading it I thought that was okay, and that it was just the right balance of everything.
Jake is an ex soldier. He’s powerful, he’s been through a lot in his lifetime and gotten over them and built a good business for himself. Life is routine but good. We already met him in Tiny and Ian’s books, and I remember looking forward to his story, glad that he was going to have one. Natalie, on the other hand, has also been through some hard times but in her case she couldn’t exactly get over them and move on with her life.
