Praised for her “hot and bold”(Kirkus Reviews) romances of erotic intrigue, the author of Only and Mercy now delivers her most daring novel yet…

She doesn’t depend on anyone for anything. He intends to make her his completely.

Natalie Udall thought her position at the CIA was secure—until protecting her team earned her an armed escort into certain danger. Natalie can’t stand the idea of being secreted away in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, especially since it means sharing close quarters with the controlling bodyguard enlisted to keep her alive.

Gabe MacIntosh joined the military to support his son, trained as a sniper and dealt with death on a regular basis. Now retired and operating a security firm, his first assignment is to protect a CIA agent on the run. She’s strong willed and difficult—and all Gabe can think about is exerting his domination and stripping her of every expectation she has.

Natalie has no intention of giving in to Gabe’s straightforward demands of dominant sex with no attachments—even though the very idea of giving up control thrills her like nothing ever has…

This will be quick a review… This is a first time author for me and unfortunately I don’t think I will be picking up another title from her any time soon.

I saw the cover and read the sypnosis and thought it was a perfect title to try out seeing as I was in the mood for some good EROTICA, I mean what else are you supposed to read in the fall.

There were a few things that factored as to why me and this book were just not seeing eye to eye the first reason being that I didn’t find it very erotic, yes some parts were very hot, but nothing that made me tremble with need. This book is narrated in the third person and generally I love that but I wasn’t able to gauge the characters essence of who they were, it was almost monotone.

Natalie and Gabe seemed to be at a constant battle between one another for authority and I wanted them to cave and give in a little more to the need that they were both seeking in one another. Natalie was a bit too head strong for my liking and Gabe had major potential seeing as he was an ex-sniper in the service but his character was a bit washed out with irritating surrounding issues. And really Gabe’s son may have been my favorite subject in this book, I’m sad I didn’t like this more because I really wanted too! So all in all I have to say this book wasn’t for me specifically but with time I’ll possibly try a title from her again, because I’m no quitter… (most of the time!)
