Publisher's Summary

Strong enough to protect her. Bold enough to love her.

When good girl Margo Connelly becomes Lamar "Striker" Jennings's latest assignment, she knows she's in trouble. And not just because he's been hired to protect her from an underworld criminal. The reformed bad boy's appeal is breaching all her defenses, and as the threats against her increase, Margo isn't sure which is more dangerous: the gangster targeting her, or the far-too-alluring protector tempting her to let loose. 

Though Striker's now living on the right side of the law, he's convinced his troubled past keeps Margo out of his league. But physical chemistry explodes into full-blown passion when they go on the run together. Surrendering to desire could be a deadly distraction - or finally prove that he's the only man qualified to keep her safe, and win her love.

Great book

I love this book but it is listed as book 2 when its actually book 1 in the series.
Margo was super annoying and frustrating in the beginning. She literally had me fussing out loud at her. I could understand her independent mindset but she was overly nosey while at the same time acting like her business was private. She was deliberately difficult for someone who's life was in danger. Glad that she finally came to her senses. Brenda Jackson has a way of writing that keeps you totally engrossed in the story and Ron Butler is an awesome narrator.

Narrator is not what I envisioned...

Don't listen to this! It's better to be read. The voice over just didn't do it for me. It's a decent story though. I enjoyed the actual plot more than the romance in it. Usually for me it's the opposite. I don't know, maybe it's because I have read all of the Westmoreland series from Brenda Jackson and I know her style of writting already.

Anyway, the plot was was pretty good for me. I can honestly say I was shock with a part near the end. I knew something was off, but didn't see that coming at all. Kudos for that because I usually know what's how a story is gonna end either before it starts or at least half way through.
