As a former member of the United States Secret Service, I’m no stranger to putting my life on the line in the name of duty. Having left the nation’s capital to re-settle in Pittsburgh, the skills I acquired during my tenure in Washington have made me a valued member of the team at Jameson Force Security. But when the President comes seeking a favor to protect his niece, I find myself on the fast track back to the Oval Office.
Simply put… she’s beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn’t believe she’s in any real danger, the President isn’t willing to take chances with her life.
As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I’d ever thought possible. When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I’ve fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I’ll rain down on those that threaten her.

I love this author. The story she gives us in this second book is a mind twisting one full of suspense, hooks and plenty hot!! Jameson Security is the base and in this Cruce fights to protect the niece of the President, a man whose life he saved years prior. Bennett is the genius scientist kidnapped on Cruce’s watch...its a page turner. It has depth and characters you will want to know. As the story comes to life in your mind you are at the end of it before you realize you never put it down. I love Happy endings cause real life is not always that way so I love Sawyer to whisk me away on an adventure packed with surprises, panty melting hotness and characters that are too good to put down.
