Five nights. Two adversaries. One bed in their hotel room…
I’m at the height of my athletic career. Yet my arrogant brother is always trying to recruit me into the family business: a global security company so secretive that I don’t even know its name.
Pass, thanks. I don’t need a summer job.
But the jerk ambushes me with a damsel in distress. That damsel is Alex, the competitive, sassy girl I knew when we were kids. Now she’s a drop-dead gorgeous woman in deep trouble.
So guess who’s on a flight to Hawaii?
It’s going to be a long week in paradise. My job is keeping Alex safe, while her job is torturing me with her tiny bikinis. Or maybe we’re torturing each other. It’s all snark and flirting until the threat against Alex gets serious. And this jock must become her major league protector.
Moonlighter is a stand-alone novel. No cliffhangers, no prior experience necessary. Expect: a growly hero, a lady boss with no time for his attitude, and a war of wills and hormones. Bonus: hunk wearing a baby in a sling.

Loved it, but some details were inaccurate
I *love* Sarina’s books, and have read so many of them. A couple of details in this book pulled me out of the story enough to feel irritated by their inaccuracy. There are few places on Oahu that are considered ‘rural’… Honolulu is the state capital and is for all intents and purposes, a big city. But more specifically, there are major hospitals here that are in no way small. Kapiolani is a hospital specially for women and children not just for hawaii but for the entire Pacific with a level 3 nicu. If girlfriend was having emergent issues with her pregnancy, no doubt a single search would have put her in the best care the state has to offer. That’s it. Hot book. Loved the rest. Research locations before writing about them.
Blend of sports romance and romantic suspense
Moonlighter is a good blend of sports romance and romantic suspense. Eric Bayer is a player on the Brooklyn Bruisers and the story introduces his brother Max’s Security firm that is so secretive it is known only as The Company.
Alex has quite a lot going on in her life. The Company is tasked with keeping her safe but they have to first find out where the threat is coming from. Her childhood friend Eric is roped into helping his brother’s company and acting as Alex’s fake boyfriend on a trip to Hawaii.

I loved listening to this story on audiobook. The narration was great and really kept me invested in the story.
I really enjoyed the story! The building up of the relationship between Alex and Eric was great. I do wish there was more closure in the end or even an epilogue, but overall I really enjoyed the book. I had to keep reading without a break to find out how they were going to end up.
