When I saw that Anna Hackett had a new series, I knew that I needed to jump right in. I adore her writing style and I adore her characters.
Lainie and Nick have been in each other’s lives for a long time. Lainie is Nick’s sister’s best friend. He has always viewed her as off limits, she has always harbored a crush. Now, Lainie is a successful business owner and fabulous. She is smart, funny, caring, and has a giant heart. Nick is out of the military and works at a private security firm. He doesn’t do relationships and works hard to keep his heart protected. When Nola, his sister asks him to help Lainie because she is being threatened he steps right in. And wow is Nick bossy. He is so bossy, but we are all here for it. Nick is one of the most protective heroes that I have read in a long time. Lainie, independent and fierce, is having none of his keeping her out of the loop. I lived for their banter and push pull in this book. The sexaual tension that this pair had was off the charts. Lainie and Nick struggled to keep their hands off of each other, and when they finally gave into their connection it was so so steamy. The suspense element of this book is really amazing, too. I loved the different directions that Hackett went, and it left us guessing until the end. I also loved how Hackett brought in characters from her other series.
If you like a romantic suspense full of surprises, steamy connections, and amazing banter this book should go on your TBR list!
