About the book:
There’s no resisting a desire like this…
MMA fighter Miles Dartman’s casual arrangement with personal shopper Maxi Nevar would be many men’s fantasy. She seeks him out, they have mindblowing sex, she leaves. Rinse, repeat. Yet lately, Miles wants more. And when Maxi requests his services via the Body Armor security agency, he’s ready to finally break through her defenses—and protect her day and night.
Receiving a large inheritance has brought chaos and uncertainty into Maxi’s life. Her ex has resurfaced, along with lots of former “friends,” and someone is making mysterious threats. Then there’s Miles, who doesn’t ask for anything…except her trust. Pleasure is easy. Now Maxi has to give her heart as well as her body…or risk losing a man who could be everything she needs.
Not my first Lori Foster book, but my first from this series–it worked just fine as a standalone, but what I saw of the heroes of books 1 and 2 will definitely have me putting their books in my TBR ASAP 🙂
Maxi and Miles have a brief but memorable history before the book begins–I thought it was an interesting twist to make *her* the one who originally cuts and runs when things start to get close. It added an extra wrinkle to things when unusual (and more than a little creepy) circumstances cause her to seek out his protection as a body guard. Their romance heats up quickly, but with that history it’s not outside the realm of possibility that it will. The suspense–which starts out pretty intense and keeps ratcheting up and up as the story continues–adds to that as well, making for an altogether engrossing read.
Sahara’s story is next–wait for it, or go back to the beginning? Decisions, decisions… 😉
