Wow oh Wow, this is one mixed bag of goodness right here! A rocker, a hot cop, mystery stalker, secrets and lots of suspense all coming together on a reality TV show. I was definitely compelled from the very beginning, it had me at the dedication. I can normally work out early on who is be the bad guy, but in this case, I got it wrong, and I love that I did because it wasn’t predictable.
Roman Creed has a secret, Reed Manning has a secret too and they also have a troubled past. Each wants to leave it all behind and get on with the job at hand, but they both go on the reality TV show for different reasons. Roman to find a new bodyguard and Reed to win the prize money to ease her debts. Little did they realize how complexed their involved would be.
Roman acts like the big Rock Star that he is but deep down it’s just a hard exterior he portrays with a gooey center, a true romantic. He is hot tempered but will go out of his way with kindness for his family and friends. Reed has had a tough upbringing and this is one of the reasons she became a cop. She will put her life on the line to protect her principal. She is strong, loyal and has a tender touch when her wall is down. Together these two were meant to be. They knew it, they felt it, and they breathed it in, their first kiss sealed the deal.
I can tell a lot of research has gone into this novel and for that I am grateful. It was very authentic and I not only felt like a contestant playing the game but I am up on my bodyguard (EPO) language for my next trivia night. If you have read anything else from this author, than you will get the same feeling to it as the others. If it’s your first, you’re starting with a winner.
