Synopsis 3

You shouldn’t mix business with pleasure.

Yet pleasure seems to be the one and only thing on Charlize’s mind the moment Connor steamrolls into her life. Desperate to save her family company, prove she’s more than a pretty face and worthy of being CEO, pleasure is a distraction she can’t afford.

She doesn’t want a bodyguard, especially not one whose caveman heroics kick her libido into hyperdrive. But surrounded by enemies and an attacker on the loose, there’s only one man she can trust with her life.

Connor knows better than to get personal with clients. Yet there couldn’t be anything more personal about his feelings for Charlize. From the moment he clapped eyes on her he wanted nothing more than to throw her over his shoulder and really give her something to scream about. He’ll get his uptight she-cat to unwind, preferably one orgasm at a time.

With Connor in her office, her home, driving her to sweet, merciless distraction, there’s only so long Charlize can resist his sexy, dominant brand of protection.

Review4.5 Pennies

From their first encounter Charlize new there was something different about Connor.  When Connor stepped in to protect Charlize from the twins at the gym, he had no idea the affect this one action was going to have on his life.  Charlize was mad, she thought Connor seemed too good to be true and he went and proved her right when he went all Neanderthal on her.

‘Too bad he’s turned out to be a complete goddam caveman.  Had he actually slung her over his shoulder and hauled her ass into his cave?  What was that they said about men who looked too good to be true?  Yeah well, this one had a flaw she wouldn’t ever overlook.  No man treated her as if she were some prehistoric prize.’

Charlize was a proud, independent woman trying to make it in a man’s world.  She is currently trying to keep her father’s business going while not having to cut jobs.  In the process she finds herself in danger due to the picketers and employees who don’t want her in her position.  For this reason Connor is further enmeshed in her life.

Connor is a former detective, and now runs his own security firm.  His most recent assignment is to help increase the security for Charlize and her company.  He makes it his personal mission to be Charlize’s bodyguard 24/7.   This is where lines get a little blurred.

The connection between Charlize and Connor is immediately seen with their first interaction.  He is all Alpha male and plans to protect Charlize no matter what.  The problem with that is Charlize can be a stubborn, independent, difficult women and she has to put up a fight the entire way.

This book has mystery, intrigue, sexy alpha male, HOT sex, relationships, and love.  I enjoyed reading this book, the characters are great.  You really get a feel for them by the way the author is able to paint a very clear picture of them, whether it is the dirtball slime or the alpha male security guard.  This book has a twist in it that I didn’t see it coming until it happened, it was a surprise and it made the entire story even better if you can imagine that.  Thank you Amber A Bardan for a book that not only intrigued me but kept my attention until the very end!!!!

Excerpt
“So I guess you’ll be glad when this is all over and you can go back to running Crowe Security instead of having to play boyfriend, huh?”

Something dark and raw shifted over Connor’s features. His jaw hardened. The waitress reappeared, balancing large plates of food. She set them down and Connor waited until she moved away before he spoke again.

“Is that what you think? That this is a game I’m playing to pass the time?”

Charlize picked up her knife and fork and stared at the steaming brown mess on her plate. A sharp pain tightened her chest at the idea she might be right, but a slow, suffocating fear told her she might be wrong. “I have no idea what this is.”

The plate disappeared from in front of her and her gaze snapped up. Connor moved her dishes, silverware, napkin and glasses from the middle of the table to the end against the wall. He looked at her from beneath hooded brows and reached for her arm, urging her to move. The leather seat shuffled against her thighs as she slid to the inside end of the booth. Connor sat down beside her and reached an arm around her shoulders but not in a casual, romantic way. The embrace pressed her to him, made her feel the heat of his skin, the hardness of his body, but most of all he captured her, forced her attention on him.

“I told you once, I don’t play games. I want you, Charlize, and I’ve only just begun to have you. The sooner you figure that out and stop fighting me, the sooner you can just enjoy it.”

Her back remained straight and she managed not to lean against him. “It’s a bad idea, Connor. I’m not the girl you want, at least not long-term.” She forced her head to turn, forced herself to look him in the eye. “Aside from an obvious appreciation for my ass, I’m not even sure why you want me at all.”

His jaw and his gaze softened then he leaned in, put his mouth right next to her ear. “Is that it, baby? You’re feeling insecure, need me to say some sweet shit to make you feel better?” His hand moved under the table to her thigh, ran the length of her knee to her groin, made responding to his question impossible. “Fine, but I can’t promise I’ll be good at it,” he whispered.

He cupped her, his thumb pressing through her jeans in exactly the right place. She gasped, sucking in a mouthful of air that tasted of the peppery steam rising from her plate.

“Yeah I like more than your ass. I like the way you never give up, the way you never give in.” His thumb moved, pushed the thick, hard seam stitched into the denim between her legs. Using firm, shallow movements, he massaged her, taunting her aching clit. “Except when it comes to this—when it comes to this you give me everything.”

Her breath hitched. She heard the words and they melted her insides. But it was his fingers that commanded her.

“But most of all, I like how you always try so damn hard.”
