A friends to lovers, grumpy/sunshine, military protector romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Lynn Raye Harris.
Two years ago, Brooke Sullivan was violently abducted by a terrorist group. She’s worked hard to get her life back on track—moving to a new house, changing careers, trying to date. But when her next door neighbor is murdered, the killer believes Brooke possesses something he wants. And he’ll stop at nothing to retrieve it.
Cade “Saint” Rodgers can’t stop thinking about the beautiful woman he met at his commander’s wedding. Now that she’s in trouble, he volunteers for bodyguard duty. Brooke is wary of men like him, but he’s determined to make her see him as more than a military protector.
As days become nights, Brooke begins to trust the man who sends her sexy texts from the next room. He says he’s willing to wait, and he does. Until Brooke decides naughty messages aren’t enough and she’d rather have Cade in her bed each night.
But a killer is still out there. Still waiting. Still looking for an opportunity.
