My Review

After being rescued from a brutal sex ring, Abby Harris is now the key witness in the trial of the two men arrested in her case. However, their partners are still free and actively searching for her before her testimony can end them as well. She tries to keep her life as normal as she can, as her bodyguard, Jerrod Quinn, does all that he can to keep her safe. Abby doesn’t always make it easy as the protocols that keep her safe and the need to be constantly looking over her shoulder take their toll. As the trial gets closer, flashbacks and nightmares threaten to cripple her. Jerrod is her rock, yet caring for her when she is at her most vulnerable, awakens feelings in Jerrod that could compromise his ability to keep her safe.

Still loving this series. Once again I was given the opportunity to review a book in the compellingly addictive Bodyguards of L.A. County series. Actually, this turned out to be the first book I read in the series and it was a terrific introduction. From reading other reviews this book seems to be a sequel to book 4 in the series. Forever Alexa is not a book I was asked to read, however I would love to. Not having read it didn’t hamper the story for me at all. This book stands alone quite well. The author has a knack for including something for all readers and allowing her story to cross genres. This is not a sappy romance. There is plenty of suspense and intrigue with just the right amount of pulse pounding action and a touch of steamy romance. The banter between Abby and Jerrod is fun and is the perfect lead in to a relationship that neither is sure they are in a place to pursue. The story is character driven, Not just the two main characters, but all of the secondary characters add life and charm to the story.It is great to see reappearances of previous book characters as well.

Abby is a strong person, who is able to make what she has been through work for her. She is lucky to have a strong support system around to help her through the worst. The story of just what she has endured is unrolled throughout the story in pieces making the story less about her ordeal and more about her recovery. Jerrod’s story is just as interesting. His back story made him seem a bit one dimensional and shallow at one point in his life, yet we are able to see his growth to the man he is now. His family was an interesting addition to the story, though at first I thought bringing his ex into it was just an excuse to have a bit of conflict for the romance, even she turned out to be more than a bit of story fluff.

All in all this is a terrific book that I am sure I will read again, provided my ever growing To Be Read list allows me the time.

5 stars

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
