Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.
Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.
With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.
With danger around every corner, Talia needs help. Shane, her brother’s best friend, is in the bodyguard business and plans to protect her. But when feelings from their youth come to light will Shane be able to protect her and fall in love at the same time or will he walk away once she is finally safe. With a quick action filled storyline and beautifully written characters once again a Carly Phillips does not disappoint.
I really enjoyed this book just like the rest of the series. I haven’t read a Carly Phillips book that I have disliked. I love a good crossover. I really feel like you get to know the characters and where they are going.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Loved this story! The characters are great and the story exciting.
