Close Cover: A Masters and Mercenaries Novel
Remy Guidry doesn’t do relationships. He tried the marriage thing once, back in Louisiana, and learned the hard way that all he really needs in life is a cold beer, some good friends, and the occasional hookup. His job as a bodyguard with McKay-Taggart gives him purpose and lovely perks, like access to Sanctum. The last thing he needs in his life is a woman with stars in her eyes and babies in her future.
Lisa Daley’s life is going in the right direction. She has graduated from college after years of putting herself through school. She’s got a new job at an accounting firm and she’s finished her Sanctum training. Finally on her own and having fun, her life seems pretty perfect. Except she’s lonely and the one man she wants won’t give her a second look.
There is one other little glitch. Apparently, her new firm is really a front for the mob and now they want her dead. Assassins can really ruin a fun girls’ night out. Suddenly strapped to the very same six-foot-five-inch hunk of a bodyguard who makes her heart pound, Lisa can’t decide if this situation is a blessing or a curse.
As the mob closes in, Remy takes his tempting new charge back to the safest place he knows—his home in the bayou. Surrounded by his past, he can’t help wondering if Lisa is his future. To answer that question, he just has to keep her alive.
I really did not care from Remy at first. He is VERY judgmental and it was a huge turn off. But, he is willing to own up to his misjudgment. I liked Lisa. She is smart and resilient. The BDSM is pretty tame in the story (which IMO was good because I didn't want a story about BDSM; this is a romantic suspense whose characters happen to play in the BDSM lifestyle)
I’ve said it to many times in reviews for Lexi Blake she is perfection. You just can’t get much better.
Another great addition to a great series!
Loved it. Lexi never disappoints. I have read every book in this series at least twice!
