The Doctor's Defender by Terri Reed

Book Description:


As a trauma surgeon, Dr. Brenda Storm saves lives every day. But someone wants her dead. It starts with the anonymous delivery of poisoned cupcakes. Now the hospital has hired a bodyguard to protect her 24/7. At first, Brenda doesn’t think too-handsome Kyle Martin is right for the job. Then she discovers his harrowing background—and that Kyle will do anything to keep her safe. With every attempt on her life, she’s more drawn to the strong and silent man who risks his life for hers. But their growing feelings could put them both in harm’s way.

My Thoughts:
This was a good, quick read.  Dr. Storm has upset someone badly.  Apparently upset enough to want her dead!  Poisoned cupcakes that were meant for her, find another target and the hospital brings in a bodyguard.  Kyle is handsome but doesn't look the part of a bodyguard.  The fact that Brenda is attracted to him isn't why she wants to keep him at it?
I liked Kyle.  He was such an interesting personality.  He was a 'goof' but joked to hide his emotions and to keep people from getting too close.  When it came to the job though, there was no one better for it!  Brenda was a good strong leading lady.  I liked her question of faith.  It wasn't simple or straightforward but it was a question that I'm sure a lot of people struggle with. 
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a solid Christian Suspense.
