I will stop at nothing to protect her.
The moment she takes the stand I’m lost, drowning in the details of her story escaping an infamous cult’s compound. Every part of me screams to keep her safe from the men eager to kill her for testifying.
When I’m the next US marshal assigned to her protection detail, I know it’s a mistake to make it personal. But taking her to my hometown is my best bet of keeping her safe until the trial is over.
Forced together day and night, her innocence begs me to show her just how good the right touch can be.
Every stolen kiss is forbidden, putting my heart in danger for when she has to leave.
Each glance and unspoken word between us is a risk we shouldn’t take.
Fantasies of us together become my only thoughts.
She’s becoming my biggest weakness.
I knew better than to let my guard down.
Because the men she escaped from won’t stop until they have her back.

“I never understood the meaning of home until you, Max.”
Not my first read by the author. I am familiar with her writing style and the suspense romance she is well known for. I think what threw me off of this one from the first pages is the hero, I just got a bad vibe from him not sure how to explain it and it just went along with the book for me.
We have a Marshal on his last assignment and a beautiful woman he is to guard while getting her to safety. It’s fast pace and full of suspense, mystery and action. Max was a little different in a sense of he was more realistic than dreamy if that make any sense. He has a lot going on right from the beginning and his life is a mess, but he has one more to do and he is out. Little did he know his last assignment is going to be one heck of one to get out of his position. The heroine is a little naïve but really sweet, she is a witness and her small quiet life got turned upside down. The chemistry between H&H is instant and even though they know they can’t cross that line, they can’t mess with fate and life. Overall I had a little bit of a hard time connecting, again it’s my preference that I just need more romance in my suspense but this was very well written and researched.
Standalone/Series: (In Clear Sight Book 1)
