Book Whisperer's Rating:
He’ll guard her body all night long.
Former Marine Jude Wilde’s motto has always been “burn bridges and never look back,” so nobody is more surprised when Wilde Security is hired to protect assistant district attorney Libby Pruitt, the woman he loved and left. Although she makes it clear she wants nothing to do with Jude, they’re forced to fake a relationship for her safety. He can’t ignore the heat still simmering between them, and when her stalker’s threats escalate to attempted murder, he’s left with no choice but to whisk her away to a friend’s safe house in Key West, FL.
Cooped up in paradise together, Jude begins to chip away at Libby’s resolve to hate him. But even as she gives in to his proximity and her body’s demands for his, she refuses to fall for his charms again. Maybe a torrid affair in the sun is exactly what she needs to get him out of her system. But when her stalker tracks them down, can they escape the steamy Key West night without anyone getting hurt?
This book was such a quick, fun read that I finished it up in just hours. Jude has an overly cocky attitude and is brought in to provide protection for his ex-fiancé that is being stalked. Their first few encounters do not go well but when they get down to Key West, things start to heat up. Here is when the reader finds starts to see a different view of Jude and what burden he has been carrying around for years and how much he truly does love Libby. It was great to see him open up and let the truth out. I will say that book was predictable for me however I really liked reading it.
