Known to the K2 Special Services team as "Saint," Jamie Turner lives by his own strict rules to compensate for his past sins and the two-ton boulder taking residence in his heart. He doesn't drink or smoke. He never swears. And he only dates nice, safe women until he meets Sugar Darling, the fill-in receptionist at K2. She's as sweet as her name, but this wild woman is definitely trouble, with something to hide. He knows he should avoid her.... But can he?
Sugar isn't hiding something - she's hiding everything. And K2 seems like the perfect place to lie low, thanks to the big, protective guys who work there. The drop-dead-handsome Saint makes her heart race, yet he keeps his distance. When Sugar's traumatic past rises up to haunt her again, she desperately turns to Saint for help, and he has to decide what's more important: playing it safe or risking everything for love.

I read Crazy For Her and Someone Like Her and gave them both 5 stars but I had a hard time with the first 50% of this one. All of it was just about how much Jamie wanted Sugar, but didn’t want to want her. His guilt over the deaths of his parents and his thoughts of how Sugar wouldn’t want him if she knew the truth. And his patience with her over her fear of sex. There was really no excitement or drama or anything that made me want to keep reading it. This story was not nearly as good as the other two. I’m all for sexual tension and sex but this book took it to the extreme.
And, geez, how many books am I going to have to read where a woman is leaving to keep a half-dozen big strong men safe, it’s just ridiculous for a woman to think that. She should have told Jamie and the other men what was going on; instead of thinking she was going to protect them. UGH!
Anyway, I did finish this book but it was just boring until the last 25%. It was good, what happened to Rodney and Sugar’s father, but it wasn’t enough to bring the rating to any more than 3 stars. I’m not sure I’ll continue with this series.
As to the narration: As much as I like the narration in the other two books I didn’t like it with this one. Amy McFadden did a wonderful job but Mikael Naramore wasn’t good at all. Jamie’s voice, overall, was kind of sucky and Sugar’s southern accent was atrocious. Mr. Naramore should not do female accents, ever. Sorry.
I got this book through KU.
