Series: Guarding Her Body #2
Author: Naima Simone
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Blurb: Lately, things have been a little weird for Sloane Barrett—late night crank calls, disturbing images in her inbox, her tires slashed. She tries not to let it bother her. She tries to pretend everything is ok. Then someone breaks into her house and attacks her…and Sloane realizes she needs professional help. Tall, gorgeous and overwhelmingly intense help.
But Sloane knows all too well just how much trouble intense guys can be.
Security Specialist Ciaran Ross’s priority is to ensure Sloane is safe. His gut tells him she’s in danger, but his feelings for her are pulling his focus. Ciaran has already made the mistake of falling for a client, and the results were disastrous. He won’t risk it again. He can’t. But running from love is the surest way to get Sloane killed…
Thoughts: So every now and again I get the urge to grab up a romantic suspense novel, and this one appealed to me. I hadn’t read this series before or any books by this author, but I decided to take a chance on it. It seemed like a series that you could grab up without it being completely necessary to had read the previous book….and I was right on that. I had absolutely no trouble following along, I didn’t get that haunting feeling that I was missing something, and the other characters didn’t bother me with their obvious desire to tell their story.
Additionally, it was also just a good romantic suspense novel. I enjoyed it and the characters. For those hardcore romantic suspense readers out there though, I have a feeling it might have a few issues. The typical guy who fears commitment because of a tragic event in his past with a woman being one of them. Also, in all honesty, it is a bit predictable overall. However, if your in the mood for romantic suspense….this one will satisfy your craving…J
