I give this book 5 stars
This is story is about a senators daughter (Lauren), who is a Assistant District Attorney, who has had some high profile murder cases and a former FBI agent Royce Walker that has opened his own security firm with his brothers.
Royce has been asked by Lauren father to ‘watch out for her’ because he has been getting threats. Lauren has also been getting disturbing phone calls that she has told no one about, so at Lauren’s father’s birthday party luckily Royce gets introduced to Lauren by her friend Julie and there is instant chemistry between these two characters, so they end up leaving together and that is when the bad things start to happen.
Royce knows that he can not tell Lauren about his agreement with her father and feels guilty about this because he knows that it may blow up in his face and he may end up losing her trust. Lauren has been left scarred and with trust issues after finding her ex fiancé in bed with another woman so when she finds herself extremely attracted to Royce, she is unsure what to do, but leave it to the alpha male to show her the way.
This book kept me entertained to find out who was behind the plot right to the end when you found out ‘who it was’!!!.
This is a definite ‘Must Read’ if you like white hot chemistry, intrigue and a woman finding herself. Congratulations Lisa on a great read.
He scooted her off his lap and settled down on the floor in front of her, his hands sliding up Lauren’s calves, to her knees that she’d primly pressed together. The heady scent of her perfume, her home, her very feminine presence, seeped into his senses.
She stared down at him, a soft ‘doe in headlights’ look on her face. “Royce?” His name was a soft plea on her lips, filled with uncertainty. He’d confused her, sent her mixed messages, in his effort to do what was right.
He felt like a wolf, a hungry wolf who wanted to devour this woman, and there was no way that didn’t show in his eyes, no way the energy, the need he felt for her, didn’t radiate off of him.
“You’re beautiful,” he said, softly, calmly, when the rage of hormones inside him was anything but. He kissed her knees, one and then the other, reaffirming his decision to let her pleasure be his tonight.
“And I’m going to show you how much I mean that.” She swallowed hard, her delicate, kissable throat bobbing with the action. “I’m not sure I know what that means.”
He brushed her dress up her thighs. “You will,” he promised and kissed her delicate little knee again. She laughed – a nervously feminine sound. “I’m not sure I know what that means either.”
“You don’t need to know what it means,” he said, his fingers tracing the lace of her thigh high pantyhose, the sexy lingerie choice confirming what he’d always suspected. Lauren might be prim and proper on the outside, but there was a sensual woman beneath the exterior who wanted to come out and play – and he wanted to be the man who she played with. He wanted to be that man tonight, but no matter how tempting that might be, tonight wasn’t the night. But he’d be damned if he’d allow her to doubt his desire for her, his absolute, complete attraction to her. “You just need to know how it feels.” His hands slipped inside her thighs, easing her legs apart, his lips trailing a path up one of them.
