Protecting people, safeguarding secrets...
For the men of Hawkeye, the line of duty between bodyguard and client isn't meant to be crossed.
He was supposed to protect her, not fall in love.
Former Hawkeye operative Jacob Walker is no longer for sale…until he sees Elissa Conroy. He's so captivated by her vulnerability that he can't refuse one last mission. Determined to keep the fiery Irish woman safe from a madman's quest for revenge, he'll do whatever it takes—even protect her beautiful body twenty-four hours a day.
Elissa refuses to upend her life to be shuttered away like some damsel in distress. But when a secret from her past makes it clear she's in danger, she finds herself thrown over the muscular shoulder of one very inflexible and admittedly smoking-hot alpha bodyguard and hustled to safety.
Alone at his secluded Colorado ranch, the lies are exposed and the tangled web of truth unleashes a terrifying danger—all wrapped in their complicated feelings for each other. Will they be forced to deny their growing love in order to survive?
This was a great read that I could not put down. The chemistry between Elisa and Jacob was hot. I loved watching their relationship. Who can’t love waffle. This was a hot story about two people helping each other find what they need in life and each other. This is a great series and Sierra Cartwright does not disappoint
Protecting her and keeping her!
This is a story that will grab you right away and keep you reading! Jacob worked for Hawkeye but decided to not. But when he’s shown a picture of Elissa who’s in danger he jumps at the job to protect her. Elissa owns the pub and works all the time and is tired. She doesn’t realize that danger is coming for her until Jacob takes her away to keep her safe. To say she’s not thrilled is an understatement and they have banter back and forth that is great. Will the sparks flying lead to more and can he keep her safe? I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
First let me start off by saying this is the fourth book in the Hawkeye Series. However it can be read as a standalone. I really enjoyed this book and all of the characters in it. I haven’t read the previous 3 books in this series. But I will be now. The story was engaging and a great quick read. It had just the right amount of everything needed for a great story.
