I love when a heroine is the bodyguard/protector in a book. That isn’t to say that Bennett Knightley isn’t capable of protecting himself. He is former military that has a billion dollar business in creating military equipment, and his company is under attack. Hadley goes undercover to flush out the moles int he company. I am loving this series, Hadley is a woman who has been burned in the past by a man as well as disastrous examples in parents, so she has a hard time opening up to trusting someone that is outside of her inner circle. Bennett holds so much trauma from his past that he doesn’t believe that he deserves to be happy. These two are intense when they are together. There is no denying their connection and chemistry, and Bennett does everything he can to show Hadley that she can trust him. While Hadley shows Bennet that he is worthy of happiness. I wasn’t expecting the twist at the end. I actually thought the bid baddie was going to be someone else. Hackett gives some more easter eggs into couplings we can expect in the future and I can’t wait. This one isn’t my favorite of her’s but it is still an excellent story that keeps you engaged the entire time.
