Overview

Isabella Colby has always yearned for normalcy. Now that she's settled in LA, she finally has it. Good friends, a pretty home, and her thriving career as the Palisades' top skincare specialist are a dream come true. Bella is content until she meets her hunky new neighbor, but her attraction to the blue-eyed cutie is the least of her worries when contacting her long-lost father threatens to destroy her happy life.

Reed McKinley is more than ready to forget the past. His seven-year stint as an NYPD detective nearly got him killed. His wounds have healed and he's starting over as Ethan Cooke Security's latest recruit. With sixty-hour workweeks and little time to himself, the last thing on his mind is a relationship. Then he bumps into the gorgeous woman next door.

Reed and Bella become fast friends. Before long, Reed discovers that Bella is keeping dangerous secrets. Bella may have the answers to decades-old questions he's been searching for. Reed will risk it all to uncover the truth, but he soon realizes that the deeper he digs, the direr the consequences.

*NOTE: While reading the series in order is recommended, it is not necessary. Each story is a stand alone title featuring new primary characters with limited overlapping secondary characters.*

Your head will spin at times, with all of these turns! Although this is book eleven, in the Bodyguards of L.A. County series, it can be read as a stand-alone. This is the first book that I have read by this Author, so of course, the only book that I have read in this series. ;) Ms. Beauman keeps you guessing and ensures that there is nothing predictable about her tale. I recommend this suspenseful read to anyone who enjoys staying on your toes, on your way to a happy ending! I will be watching for more from this Author.

Reed McKinley is looking forward to a new life. One with a little less danger than he is used to. He moves to a new city all the way across the country. He meets an adorable new neighbor, Lucy, a Great Dane who wandered into his open door as he was moving. Isabella Colby did not have a normal childhood. After her father left, things were never the same and rarely good. Now she finally has a good life. A great dog and she just met a new gorgeous new neighbor, thanks to her wayward puppy Lucy! Neither of these neighbors is looking for a relationship right now, but friends are always good to have. Reed is an ex-cop, who was under deep cover and now just wants to relax a bit. His old friend from home, just won't let their previous undercover work in the mafia go. I really wanted to give this book 5 stars. The mystery was great, an excellent story line and a great plot. Someone commented it was too long..umm, that is an oxymoron. No good book is too long in my opinion! LOL My beef with the book were the main characters. They were just too perfect. And the amount of coincidence is a bit suspect as well. But as the story progressed, I got over that. The rest of the story, the characters, the plot and the climax were all very well done. I just couldn't get over te perfect beautiful girl falls for the perfect gorgeous guy. I'm sure I am being too picky! I am certain, however, that you will love his story. I did. I would give it 4.45 stars. I have not read any of the other books in this series,now I'm going to have to!

I have enjoyed most of the Bodyguard series. This particular book is very much "full length" but I felt the characters carried the story well. Very believable, very real.
