Jenna entered a fake marriage ten years ago when she was young and reckless, in hopes it might advance her failing Hollywood career. Ten years later, she can’t undo her mistake. Her A-list husband is too famous—and too cowardly—to admit he’s in a long-time gay relationship with a fellow actor, and at thirty-four, Jenna’s dreams have faded to dust.
Then Caleb Winchell enters her life. The taciturn, Texas-bred bodyguard is as handsome as he is capable, and Jenna’s lonely world is rocked. He’s a true and honest force in her dishonest existence, standing by her side as she fake smiles her way through the smothering farce of her life. Caleb helps her breathe again, but she can’t act on her deepening feelings toward her bodyguard. He’s a professional, and he never breaks the rules.
And she’s a married woman…even if it’s all a sham.

Great story from start to finish. It was fun to see characters from other books as part of this story. I LOVE everyone of Annabel Joseph’s books so it isn’t surprising to enjoy her vanilla stories too. Can’t wait for the next book. I hope it’s not too long coming.
Sigh, swoon, that is what Caleb Winchell will do to you. We've met him before, twice, in his brother's book, and in the previous Ironclad book, but nothing prepares you for who sweet and protective this man really is! And Jenna needs it, because she has been living in an emotionally stunted, threatening world, for far too long. Caleb notices everything about her, and she feels safe for the first time ever. They bond, they connect, and then the sparks they have light up the night with super sexy times. They aren't going to have an easy time of things, but Caleb is a calm in the storm that has become Jenna's life, and she just needs to trust herself, as much as she trusts him
