This is another of the Crossover Collection novellas brought to us by Lexi Blake.
This installment, by Carly Phillips, is fast-paced, quick-witted, full of laughs, tender moments, action-adventure from the get go and hot, steamy sex. I like it!
Not only do I like the book as a whole, I really like our "scientific-nerd-girl," Talia Shaw. Smart, fearless and yet so down to earth. I want her to be real and to be my friend. I want her to be my daughter's friend. I want to invite Talia and sexy Shane Landon to dinner and I want Shane to have an older, single cousin who is in the same shape as he is in. Guess this means I need to shape up too.
Y'all know I don't give out spoilers, but this novella is definitely worth the money. This crossover should be a television mini-series. Can you imagine just how many other series' spin-offs it would lead us to demand? If you're with me, raise your hand! I'm the one waving with the stupid grin on her face. Why? I get to review a few more and have asked for the series for Mother's Day in paperback. It doesn't mean I'll get them all, but...
Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.
Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.
With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.
