Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars
Great suspense, mystery, and tension to begin this new series.
I loved how this series began, it caught and held my attention right from the start. The suspense was great and figuring out the mystery on who was after Claire held my attention all the way through, but it was the relationship between Claire and Vaughn that I could have just scrolled right past, to be honest. It wasn’t that I didn’t care, but it seemed to take center stage when Claire was literally in a life and death situation and at times it seemed out of place.
While Vaughn uses all of his skills, he works hard to figure out who is trying to kill Claire, while she is hidden away in a safe house. She’s not entirely alone, since Vaughn heads there often both debrief and to de-brief Claire – wink wink. Subtle I know, which is everything these two are not as Vaughn and Claire delve into light D/s and some other kinks, enjoy!
So, we really don’t get to meet the other members of Vaughn’s firm but for some very brief moments, but I am intrigued enough to jump back in and get to know more.
It wasn’t every day that I was shot at by a sniper. But this was now my life, being hunted by someone my (dead) ex-fiancé had crossed. They thought I had something he’d taken, and they weren’t going to stop until they had what they wanted.
I went to the best security company around, but what I ended up with was a bodyguard who was as hot and tempting as he was grumpy and annoyingly bossy. Vaughn reluctantly took me on as a client, despite my inability to pay, and put me in his own personal safehouse with a set of rules to follow.
But a few of those rules? Yeah, I broke them just because I knew it would provoke him. What I didn’t anticipate was the kind of punishment he decided to dole out . . . and it wasn’t long before we went from enemies, to lovers, and an indecent proposal was struck between us.
We both swore it was all temporary, but the closer Vaughn gets to finding out who is after me and why, I realize walking away from this man might be much harder than I’d ever imagined.
