Life in the Big Easy is anything but
Hotel heiress Ela LeBlanc is ready to take control of her life. Waking up handcuffed to a former Marine and then hearing the news of her step-dad's plans to sell her Mom’s hotel is just the wake-up call she needs.
With only thirty days to prove he has no claim on the property, Ela has to enlist the help of her sexy as sin bodyguard. When things take a dangerous turn, and Matt becomes the only person she can trust, she can't help but wonder... can she trust him with her heart?
Former Marine Matt Cole came to New Orleans for a fresh start, a chance to make amends. After accepting a job as the chief of security for a wealthy hotelier, he quickly realizes that life in the Big Easy is anything but.
Matt's greatest challenge is keeping his distance from the tempting Ela, his boss's gorgeous and very off limits step-daughter. Surviving Ela is just the beginning. As events unfold, it becomes clear that it's not just his heart on the line, but their lives.
The title tells all I feel. It is provoking with characters determined to do things not in their best interest. There are other circumstances, money, greed, venality to encourage this behavior.
Just couldn’t get into the story. Gave up after the first chapter.
