Damian Stone lost his partner in a shoot-out gone wrong and left the NYPD to become a bodyguard for an elite security group. Keeping people safe is what he does. Trusting those around him is essential. But when he is assigned a government witness, trust and loyalty are put to the test.
Alexa Volkov is testifying against her father, the notorious Russian crime boss. Her life is now in the hands of one man. One man who has to decide on his loyalty to his partner or to his charge. One man who has to put his trust in a woman whom he should hate. Can Damian Stone put his life on the line for the one person who doesn’t deserve either his trust or loyalty and certainly not his heart.
Damian Stone’s character is a troubled former New York cop whose partner dies in a Russian mob shoot-out. Damian has a troubled past, which he has told no-one about, but for some unexplained reason he completely opens up to Alexa. There is a constant attraction between the two main characters but Damian holds back due to his duty to his job and also because of who she is.
Do they replace brain cells with muscles? Why do they always say…’this could be a trap but we are going anyway’, low and behold – it’s a trap! Not such a safe house either when they only spend one night in it before they are found. Surely that kind of defeats the object of the book series?
It is an okay read if you are after a tough guy out to protect the gorgeous girl, on the run from the bad guys, with some mystery thrown and a little bit of romance.
