    Guarded is the perfect title for J.D. Rivera¿s new romance novel

    Guarded is the perfect title for J.D. Rivera’s new romance novella, because it depicts how sometimes we find ourselves shielding our
    HEART from harm to protect the only true source were we store our deepest feelings of LOVE. Though never under estimated the heart,
    because the heart can give STRENGTH behind the walls we build to find our COURAGE as did Vanessa Smith discovered.

    Vanessa has been married the past four years of her life to Shane and is in the process of a difficult divorce, because Shane was
    cheater during her entire marriage and he verbally demeaned her all the time. Even though Shane has told Vanessa she was a plain
    woman, Vanessa is gorgeous with long brown hair, beautiful brown eyes, and a killer body. We first encounter Valerie while she is
    running by the lake where the geese and sailboats float on the water, because Vanessa finds solitude while running when life is a little
    too much to handle. While she was watching the geese and sailboats float with ease, she collides into another runner – Jackson
    Berrios.

    Jackson is handsome, dark hair, dark eyes, tanned, bare, with a sculpted chest and has moved from New York to Oklahoma, feeling
    guilty about the collision he asks Vanessa to lunch. While at lunch they both seem to feel instantly drawn to each other, but Vanessa is
    shocked when she discovers he is a professional athlete. However, Jackson is ultimately shocked when he discovers she is married.
    A month passes from the last time they had lunch, Jackson discovers he needs to be in her life so he seeks to find her because he
    cannot stop thinking about her.

    Will Vanessa allow herself to trust again and allow herself to be love by another, so she too can love again?  Alternatively, can Jackson
    replace the wall around her heart with his love and defend her heart with the love he has for Vanessa by protecting her heart from any
    further damage her past has caused? Guarded is a beautiful story about a young woman finding the courage to move on while learning
    to love and trust others. While reading Guarded, the novella will capture your attention immediately and you will be unable to put the
    book down.

    I rate J.D. Rivera’s novel, Guarded – 4.5 AMAZING STARS!
