Christine Yeager has no time for more complications in her life as she juggles her mayoral campaign with raising her son alone.
With a contentious divorce in the mix, she thinks her life can’t get any more stressful. When her soon-to-be ex informs her he’s been receiving threats that include their young son, her life is transformed by the man sent to protect them.
JT Morris makes his living providing personal security to high-profile rock icons.
He’s spent his adult life on the road, and has no desire to stay in one place. Since leaving his hometown, he hasn’t looked back and never expected to return…until he’s hired to protect his high school crush.
Can a woman who’s been betrayed and a man without roots overcome their differences to make a connection to last a lifetime?
This story mesmerized me, with its political twists, the romantic development between Christine and JT, and the lovely flow of the tale. I ended up reading it at a one sitting, just taking it all in at once.
The situation that Christine is in, is delicate and even fragile. She is in the middle of the campaign for the mayor, her ex-husband is a senator, she is a single mother, and JT is a temptation hard to resist. He was her high school hero, brushing some bullies from harassing her, and now winning her son's heart by the tender, caring attention he is showering for him, as well.
After a turbulent childhood in the foster care, JT built a secure, convenient life for himself, that allowed him to travel across the country, and keep on the move, never set roots in one town for too long, keeping his life commitment free. But that one girl he never forgot was back in his life, and he was willing to risk it all this time around.
The story and the characters are well developed, with all the different elements finely bound together. Christina's ex-husband hired JT for her and Sammy's security. The alluded threat towards them is constantly part of the story, bringing more intensity and danger into the tale.
The attraction between Christine and JT is palpable. The passion between them is burning hot, and a temptation they soon don't want overcome. The feelings that were smoldering, soon burst into flames, and has even an effect into the campaign Christine is running.
Christine's self esteem was shattered by her husband's betrayal, she is fighting to get back on her feet, and the attention from JT is a great help on the matter.
JT's issues with his childhood, different foster homes, and constant lack of loving care has left scars inside the man, but the tender love from Christine starts to heal those wounds, and the relationship he is developing with Sunny shows him the potential of the future possibilities.
Exciting and intense story, with elements of wicked political games, blazing, captivating romance and sweet, adorable family moments, and cool motorcycles. Where stereotypical judgments of people are shredded away, and what's inside and who they are as a person matters the most
