Publisher's Summary

The daughter of a wealthy businessman, Jillian Kincaid grew up with bodyguards shadowing her every move - and she hated it. Now a TV anchorwoman, she refuses to let another hired thug follow her around. Not even when she begins to receive terrifying death threats. Not even when the bodyguard is the darkly seductive Nolan Garrett.

Trained in Special Ops, bodyguard Nolan Garrett has been hired by Jillian's father to keep her out of danger. But it's clear from the start that Jillian isn't going to make his job easy. Far from the spoiled princess he expected, Jillian is tough, independent, and totally sexy. And she's fighting him every step of the way.

As Jillian's stalker raises the stakes, Nolan must keep her close if he wants to keep her alive. But being so close can only turn up the heat that's been simmering between them - a heat that could explode into passion at any moment.

Poor Little Rich Girl

While the suspense part of the plot was well written, I just didn't like poor little rich girl Jillian. Why would an educated professional woman refuse protection after receiving death threats? It made absolutely no sense, considering that money was not an issue.

To the Edge, which I read more than 10 years ago, introduced Nolan and his brothers & sister who owned a private security company. I liked Nolan's commitment to protecting Jillian without becoming a dominant alpha jerk. His sister Eve (ex-FBI) seemed like an interesting character, so I will definitely listen to her book.

Lacks substance

I tried to finish this offering, but could not. It is full of foreplay and sexual innuendos, but lacks a story line that would keep my interest or attention. I got half way through and was through. If there was a plot, none was evident.

Too much inner dialogue

What was most disappointing about Cindy Gerard’s story?

Great potential, BUT I don't like it when the story is mostly told in the main characters head instead of by actions.

Have you listened to any of Alastair Haynesbirdge’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Liked the narrator.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Boredom, frustration and impatience. Didn't finish the story.

Long drawn-out start

I have never read or listened to this author's books. I read the rave reviews and I was sadly disappointed in the end. I listened to 2.5 hours of it and was still waiting for real excitement. The narrator was good and not his fault the story doesn't grab one's attention right from the start.

If you enjoy listening to books that do not need your full attention then this book is for you. If you prefer books that you literally cannot put down then I would suggest looking elsewhere,

Mills and Boon with action

not sure would have used a credit but as it was included I did finish it! have to say a grown man ex special forces describing a cut as a "boo boo" kind of describes the book! easy listening and I did not guess who did it so it does have its plus points

Also very obvious romantic sub plot
