Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


He protected me from danger and became my biggest threat.

He’s my defender. My savior.
A brutally determined man with a cocky smirk and an equally cocky attitude.

Broad. Strong. Focused.
He seduces me with his flirtation.
Warms me with his care.

But he’s hiding something.
There are ulterior motives beyond his concern for my security.
A thirst for more than my safe keeping.

I can’t fall for him. Can’t be tempted by his touch.

Not when he can’t be trusted.

But questioning my protector means I’ve now become his target.

From bestselling author, Eden Summers, comes another seductively thrilling standalone destined to leave you breathless.

My Thoughts:

Decker is friends with Hunter.  If you follow Ms. Summers then you already know who he is.  If not, check out his self-titled book.  It’s where we are actually introduced to Decker.  Keira knows how to use a mask to her advantage.  I’m happy that our author writes part of her story from Keira’s point of view because even though Decker is good at making us feel a part of what’s going on, I want to hear her thoughts.

She has a heavy heart and you can see how it affects her.  If Decker was the one to tell the whole story, I might have missed something like that.  I also liked to see how she put him on edge – needed to see that he has a chink in his armor.  But there are secrets on both sides and I have to wonder if they will bring our couple closer or drive a wedge between them.  Our puppeteer seems to be her brother Cole and I’m very interested to see how our author deals with him.

As we get to know more about the situation they find themselves in, you’ll have no trouble feeling the tension.  The author kept me guessing as to what she had planned around the next corner – what’s up with that!  It’s a great way to keep reading in order to see if I can figure out the answers.  She’s very good at increasing the heat and then reigning it back to a simmer.  But the tension is always there even when it sits just below the surface.  The topper is that she knows just the right moment to get us to laugh.

Even though our lives may be very serious, we have to take a moment to find something funny.  There’s also a trust theme that seems to shine through.  We need to have trust in others and in our instincts.  Plus we need to listen and not just with our ears.  Our mind always seems to get involved but our heart tends to take a little bit longer.  Letting trust in seems to make things a little easier.  Except when the author leaves me with my mouth hanging open – well, where do we go from here?  Hopefully the next book will help me with that last question.
