He can protect anything except his heart
Leese Phelps‘s road hasn’t been an easy one, but it’s brought him to the perfect job—working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who’s threatening her.
What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who’d believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese’s ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honor. He’s the last person she expects to trust—and the first who’s ever made her feel safe. And he’s the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough…
First in a new series!
So excited to start a new series by Lori Foster! Huge fan of her Ultimate series and her stories are always a great read. I dove in head first and couldn't put the book down.
The beginning of the book was a attention grabber! We meet Leese and his buddy Justice who are discussing how cold their balls are. I laughed out loud and was sucked in completely. They are outside freezing the family jewels off because they are watching for a tiny woman they've been sent to protect, but she is not going to willingly accept their help or believe them when they tell her why they are there.
Catalina is a feisty, independent, tough woman. She's a school teacher and has gone against everything her family expected. Even when Leese and Justice save her from being taken by some angry, bad men who expected more from her than she would or could give, she is wary. She knows they were sent by her step-father to bring her home, but what none of them count on is who they are really protecting her from. She knows something about her step-father and others he's involved with, and that information might just get her killed.
Leese has his work cut out for him when it comes to protecting Cat. She is a handful and the two of them are great together. They compliment each other in so many ways and Cat is not shy about her attraction to him. Leese learns Cat has more than one secret and is faced with unraveling not only the mystery around those chasing her, but the mystery behind her innocence. He finds her intriguing and frustrating, but can't seem to walk away. Justice is also a perfect addition to the story. His dry humor and incredible loyalty are endearing.
The blend of a fast paced mystery and romance are superbly intertwined. It's a great kickoff for the new series. I'm hooked and can't wait for book 2, Hard Justice.
