Smart mouthed and in charge, magazine editor, Micha Bennett, has learned the hard way to choose her career over love. When she’s up for the job of a lifetime, the competition becomes deadly fierce. To protect their best asset, her company hires the one person who’s ever put Micha on edge and threatens her sense of control.
Sexy, security consultant, Caleb Atkins, knows what he wants and it’s Micha Bennett. He just has to convince her she wants him too. With ugly shadows in his own past, he’ll die before he lets anything harm the woman he loves. Too bad Micha doesn’t think she needs his protection or his love.
Can Caleb convince Micha to let go of control long enough to fall in love? Or will fear and danger tear them apart?
Warning: Sexy, sass talking women will make you laugh, cry and want a pair of killer footwear.
This was a quick read. Micha is a tough chick. She hasn't had a 'real' family in a long time but has two close friends that are family and a host of others tagged on to make things interesting. She is also up for a big promotion at work...problem is it puts her in the spotlight and her past could come back to find her. Caleb has been wanting Micha for two years now and being close enough to be her bodyguard lets their chemistry go off the charts!
Micha was definitely a strong woman. She has taught herself to be self-reliant and never let men get too close. Her past is painful and she is letting it shape her future. Caleb is patient but quickly losing that patience. He knows he needs to handle Micha just right or he will lose her forever. They fight a lot and sometimes it feels wrong, but the author did a good job of setting them up as opposites.
I rate this a 3/5. It was a quick read that stands alone though it is third in the series.
