I've been on a romantic suspense kick lately and I find that this author never disappoints. This is the first in a new series but if you've read her other works you may recognize some of the characters. Leese is working for Body Armor security and his newest assignment is to protect Catalina. He's immediately attracted to her but initially fights the feelings because he takes his job seriously and doesn't want to get distracted or make mistakes.
One of the things I love about this author is how she does a slow burn. The characters are immediately attracted to each other but nothing happens between them right away. The chemistry jumps off of the page and these two were great together.
The plot was fast paced and the writing was great as usual. The plot progressed well with perfect timing and transitions. This author knows how to keep you emotionally attached to the characters while keeping you on the edge of your seat in regards to the overall plot.
This books sets up some of the other characters who I think will be in the future books of the series. Lot's on interesting characters and plots on the horizon I think.
I really enjoyed this and if you're a fan of romantic suspense I recommend you check this out.

He's the last person she expects to trust—and the first who's ever made her feel safe. And he's the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough…
