Witness to Passion
Guarding Her Body # 1
By: Naima Simone
Releasing June 16, 2015
Under his protection and in his bed…
For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Unfairly fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family… Yeah, birthdays suck.
Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister’s reckless—and gorgeous—best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her…even if she objects.
The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers—and clothes—are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love…if they survive long enough to see it.
Bold and savage action, dangerous situations, and passionate romance that after years of kindling, now burns out of control, like a wild fire.
Fallon and Shane have known each for a long time, and loved each other nearly as long. What seems like an opposite childhoods, have lots of similarities in the neglect, but creates a very different goals for the future for both of them. Fallon doesn't believe in love and forever, only for here and now, Shane wants the stability and safety of marriage and family. And to stay away from the temptation, instability, and spontaneity, that is Fallon. Now Fallon's life is in danger, and Shane will do everything to keep her alive, even risk his own life.
The story is fun and full of action, the pages turn quickly. When not explosive action, attempts to Fallon's life, or investigating possibly dirty cop, the lust, passion, and angst from the feelings towards each other are front and center. They want each other with fervor, but don't want to surrender to the feelings, needs, and wants.
The language at times can be a bit offensive to some, just a fair warning, as are the love scenes explicit, the heat level high.
There's a constant underlying fear of being rejected in Fallon's mind, but the ending is so swoon worthy, and leaves no doubts in anyone's mind, what are Shane's intentions and feelings. Great entertainment!
