Her best protection came from an unlikely bodyguard
When secrets leak from The Gates, the hunt is on for a mole. All evidence points to Anson Daughtry, who knows their security inside and out. Only coworker Ginny Coltrane can help clear his name, but she's caught in the middle of a turf war between militants in the Smoky Mountains. More at ease behind a computer than with a gun, Anson makes for an unlikely bodyguard. But hunkering down in the Tennessee foothills, turns out Ginny's not exactly the "need to be protected" type. Still, with someone stalking their every move, Anson isn't about to let her out of his sight. Or, if he gets his way, out of his arms.
I absolutely fell in love with Anson! What a geek, easy going, protective, surprising alpha hero, he turned out to be. He melts when Ginny just smiles, and loses all his super smarts when she comes near. This loyal, caring, protector for Ginny, saves her again and again, and it's just impossible not to like him. Ginny is smart, savvy, and caring person, taking care of her alcoholic brother, while working for the Gate. Now in more trouble than she ever could have dreamed of. The feelings between Anson and Ginny grow, even though it does seem that Anson falls first and fast, but Ginny is not far behind. They are super cute together, the story is clean, but their sensual thoughts heat up the scenes several times.
The suspense is tense. They know someone at the Gate is a mole, and fingers are pointing to one after the other, not easing the situation at all. Ginny brother, Danny, is somehow messed up in all of the trouble, and now in danger of his life. And he managed to bring the danger to Ginny as well.
The story is fast paced, and even though a stand alone novel, having been read the previous books in the series helps to see the bigger picture of things happening at the Gate. Truly enjoyable suspense with unexpected hero and heroine
