After a case ended badly for Rebecca Carson, she’s losing her mind sitting around her apartment waiting on her superiors to allow her to return to work. Since she was a teenager, the only thing she’d ever wanted was to join the FBI. Now that dream was in danger.
Gage Daniels has made a pretty good life for himself. A nice house. A career he loves. As a professional football player, he’s used to getting almost everything he’d ever want with just the snap of his fingers. This includes women. A well-timed smile is usually all it takes to attract the opposite sex, especially in Nashville.
When a stalker threatens Gage, the team owner calls an old friend, Rebecca’s ex-partner Travis Hansen, to help protect his star quarterback and find the person responsible. Hansen offers Rebecca the job, and she jumps at the chance. It’s work, and it will get her out of her apartment. How bad can it be?
Posing as Gage’s girlfriend, however, isn’t as easy as it seems. The man is relentless. Rebecca must work to protect Gage while staving off his advances. She’s there to do a job, nothing more. The last thing she wants is to be another notch on a hotshot athlete’s belt.
As the stalker continues to up the ante, Rebecca finds it harder and harder to keep her distance from Nashville’s star quarterback. He isn’t what she expected in one of the city’s most notorious playboys. Now all she has to do is keep him safe until they can find his stalker, and hope she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.
The premise of this book is one of the main reasons I wanted to be part of this blog tour. I like a good detective story, and a little bit of romance doesn’t go amiss either.
I literally read this book in a matter of a couple of days because I simply had to know what was going to happen next. Would Rebecca catch the stalker? (I didn’t work out who it was right until near the end) and would Rebecca and Gage ever act upon their attraction to each other? (this is a little obvious that they would… it IS a romance afterall) When they did, things didn’t go quite as smoothly as anticipated.
Being a Brit, I know NOTHING about American Football, but the way the author uses it as part of the story isn’t confusing at all. I found I could keep up with that part with ease and never felt overwhelmed.
I truly enjoyed this book and would definitely read more by this author as she weaves a wonderful story that keeps you turning the page. Her characters are relateable and are likeable, even when their flaws are exposed.
