Overbearing, arrogant, and insanely hot, the ex-marine Special Forces officer turned mercenary for hire is no bodyguard—especially when it comes to the stubborn woman who sets his blood on fire as quickly as his temper. Quinn Summers is a powder keg of trouble just waiting for a match, and he isn’t surprised that the feisty beauty has made some dangerous enemies.
To survive, she’s going to have to play by his rules—and that means stepping into Asher’s world, where he controls the playing field. But in his fight to save Quinn’s life, he just might end up losing his heart.… I liked a lot about this book. The suspense was fairly well done, and it was believable. The romance was also well done, and I believed in the attraction between Quinn and Asher and that the attraction went back to the first meeting, even though they denied it...or tried to.
The writing was strong, the dialog was strong, the characters and their reactions seemed real, and how people would react in the same situation.
Unfortunately, I had issues with the pacing and the way the story-line was drawn together. The romance story and the suspense story never quite worked together for me, they always seemed like they were different stories that were lumped together, so it made the flow of it not as good as it could have been.
I do recommend this overall, but there were definitely some places that I skimmed, where the story lost my attention. And, I think it was because the shift in the mood was a little tough.
