In the face of danger, the thin line between love and hate is blurred and rules are broken. But are these two prepared to face the consequences?

Dr. Kate Wheeler is an independent, feisty emergency medicine doctor with a perfect life, or at least that’s what everyone sees from the outside. Her world is turned upside down when she is forced to allow twenty-four-seven protection, disrupting her independent lifestyle leaving Kate to adjust, or not. She finds herself in uncharted territory as she balances a new love interest at work, never being alone and dodging multiple attempts on her life. If it weren’t for her two best friends by her side the stress would be too much, even for her to handle.

Her newly assigned security detail, Casey Weston, is harsh, dismissive, and overbearing. His sexy, strong body and bad boy tattoos are just the exterior to this thoughtful man who has secrets of his own. As he works to keep Kate at arm’s length he finds himself equally frustrated and fascinated by this woman who pushes his boundaries. Weston’s rules are intense and focused solely on keeping her alive. But as time goes on will his better judgement falter?

Tempers and emotions flare when these two headstrong individuals go head to head, both used to having their own way and unwilling…or too afraid…to give an inch.

With Kate’s life in the crosshairs and Weston determined to protect her, will their future be happily ever after or torn apart by the same threat that brought them together?


My Review – 4.5 Stars

Wow! I couldn’t put this book down! It’s a bit different from the usual romance novel, which was nice. The story revolves around Kate and the threat that her father’s current case poses. While she absolutely needed a bodyguard, she didn’t necessarily want one until she spent some time with Weston. Their connection is special. It’s more of a soul deep knowledge of each other, a friendship, and a longing for something beyond what they’ve known before. It isn’t just about the sexual tension or their attraction (at least not in the beginning).

I loved the characters! We’ve got Kate, a feisty, take-charge, strong woman and Weston, a slightly damaged, sensitive, gruff bodyguard. There’s Austin, the irresistible, clean-cut surgeon. What a lucky girl! And then we have her friends, Eric and Maggie, who are special in their own way. I love how these friends seem to balance each other out. I hope they get their own stories down the road.

Weston and Kate were everything! I loved their easy banter and comfortableness with each other. I enjoyed watching their walls break down and love start to grow. I’m also pleased with the progression of their relationship. It was organic and real. There were no preconceived notions and all expectations were clear. However, the story broke me a little at the end. I was surprised at how Kate and Weston left things. Now that I know it’s going to be a series (I asked the author), I can breath a little easier and look forward to the conclusion of their story.


About Kennedy L. Mitchell

I live in Dallas but I am not a Texan by birth, I am a transplant from Tennessee and married a true Texan so I had to stay. We live in a older home in Dallas proper with our son and goldendoodle (who is roughly the size of a pony).

Writing isn’t my day job, however it is my joy and favorite hobby. I enjoy sending my friends new chapters nightly and hearing their reactions the next day. That is why I write, being published is just a bonus really. My real job is the same every day, but at night I get to be someone else and write about all these fun adventures and sexcapades:) When I’m writing you can find me on the couch, earbuds in and a full glass of wine beside me. Music inspires my stores, at the end of each book I list the playlist that helped me through writing the novel.

When I am not working or writing, I am reading. I go through about 3 books a week and I am 100% sure that I’m that annoying person at book-club that gets on to people when they are not keeping up with the monthly readings or suggest the movie is as good as a book (Sometimes I wish I could vote those people out of book-club like they do on Survivor. “The tribe has spoken”).

My favorite authors that inspire my writing are: Colleen Hoover, Sarah J. Maas, Sandra Brown, and Rainbow Rowell.
