Eliam Prince is finally where he wants to be in his late father’s shipping enterprise: at the helm and ready to navigate. However, when a mysterious car tries to run him off the road on his first day as CEO, it’s clear he needs a personal bodyguard—even if the idea annoys him to no end.
Winter Wyn has built a thriving personal security business after surviving a horrific tour in the Middle East. Eliam is just a routine middle-of-the-night call—until she arrives at his penthouse, where it’s clear her strict policy of not mixing business and pleasure with her clients is in serious trouble. Keeping this man safe—from sabotage, blackmailers, assassins, and his own stubborn pride—isn’t nearly as hard as protecting her own heart.
But as the stakes rise, Eliam and Winter have no choice but to break all the rules if they want to survive. Fans of Castle will love the sparks that fly on this most unlikely couple’s journey to their happily ever after.
Eliam Prince has only just managed to take back control of his family business from his step-dad Franklin when an attempt is made on his life. His Head of Security calls in an ex-military subordinate of his to provide extra personal protection. Cue the arrival of Winter Wyn and her team of specialists. The book describes the efforts made to protect their high-profile client, and there is plenty of action, twists and turns, and suspense to propel the plot along.
I enjoyed both main characters and they each had their own issues to deal with. They are instantly attracted to one another and it doesn’t take much for them to cave to that attraction. To be fair, their lives are at stake and they need to draw comfort from one another in order to survive. I wasn’t sure about them as a couple at the start, but I believed in it by the end. There’s a decent smattering of smoldering scenes to liven things up.
The writing is good, the pacing is consistent, and the words flowed smoothly. This was a very enjoyable, quick read. The only issue was the villain of the piece: it’s pretty obvious who it is and I would have preferred more intrigue around the culprit’s identity. But it didn’t dent my enjoyment at all and I thoroughly enjoyed this read.
I’d like to thank the publisher and Inkslinger PR for providing a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
