This is not a bedtime story. It is a full length novel and I couldn’t put it down. It grabbed me and wouldn’t let me sleep. *sigh* Even if I could have put it down to sleep, stalkers do not make good dream material. Angela Meyers is one strong, stubborn woman. This is her life. The one she has given of her whole self to build. No one is going to scare her away from it. She will not let some idiot stalker scare her into hiding away from the world. She will get around to getting a security company, eventually. But really, she doesn’t want anyone else following her around and trying to tell her what to do. She is that independent. Big brother, Mark, has some different ideas. His best friend, Clay Waters, has his own security agency now. Who better to trust the life and safety of his little sister to, than his best friend? But Clay and Angela have secrets. Lots of secrets. Some from each other and some from everybody else. Yep, you got it. A reunion story. Brother’s best friend trope. *eyeroll* All topped off with suspense, and done quite well I may add. It made for some interesting reading. I wasn’t sure when the flashbacks started happening. I am not a fan. But, the author used them quite well. They were well placed and provided needed background for the characters and their story in a fluid way. They contributed to creating well rounded characters. I actually ended up liking them in this application. The story – wow. Again, job well done. There was the constant suspense of the stalker creating havoc around a stressful reunion of lovers. I had to remind myself to keep breathing and it was just a book boyfriend. I couldn’t really bop the dude upside the head, though I sure wanted to a time or two. Thank goodness Mark finally got around to doing it for me. When the secrets started coming out, OMG! I found some of them rather hard to believe, but this is fiction. It worked for me. When the stalker was revealed, well . . . that was mostly a surprise. I had been wondering, but then I thought, no that would really be too obvious. But the reasons, not so much. This was a nicely paced suspense story with a lovely romance thrown in. Kind of an interesting, slightly different ending, but a very satisfying one. Most lovers of contemporary romantic suspense with a dash of erotic will love this book. It is all there. Gasps! Sighs. Oh Nos. Look out. You’re kidding? Really? More sighs. I really think you will like this too. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
