Citadel Executive Protection (CEP): New York City's top-rated security agency that hires and assigns only the best of the best for each case.
Book 2 in the CEP series
Tilly Maxwell is a freelance photographer in New York City who happens to take the right photo at the wrong time. While on a shoot, she captures in the background of one of her pictures a man who's just committed a murder. A man whose perfect crime has now been foiled because of chance. Because of one ill-timed click of the camera, a photographer must be silenced, and Tilly's now on the run for her life.
John Osby, Oz, an ex Army Ranger who is now one of CEP's best, is shocked to see Tilly when she calls on the agency needing help. Talk about a blast from the past. They'd attended high school together and he remembers her as the quiet, adorably awkward and somewhat nerdy photographer he'd had a crush on, but because their lives were so different, he didn't dare cross the line with her, except for one drunken kiss. But now they're older, she's blossomed into a real beauty and he intends on crossing any line he can to protect her... and have her as his own.
A woman who adamantly guards her heart encounters the one man who may be able to break down her barriers. When the past collides with the present, boundaries will be pushed and unbreakable hearts will be tested to the limit.

I read both books in this series and I loved them both. Harper Bentley is an amazing writer because you can picture the scenes as you are reading the book. She has another book in this series coming out later this year and I will definitely buy it.
I did not read the first book in the CEP series, but I had no problem getting into the series starting with book two. At no time did I feel like I was missing part of the story or anything like that. I skipped book one because Trish told me she thought I’d rather enjoy the hero in Unbreakable Hearts and I should get on that… um, I’m sure she meant I should read that. It’s so nice to have someone who may not share the same likes in books as me but knows me enough to know what to recommend and those to make sure I steer clear of. Trish was not wrong in her guess, I liked our hero, John so much. Unbreakable Hearts, and especially our hero John reminded me a lot of a Kristen Ashley read. John had the whole caveman alpha thing going down, but in such a sweet way. The man saw what he wanted and went for it, making sure she wasn’t going to get away….again. Our heroine, Tilly was okay. She’s a runner, which annoyed me as they always do, but because John was such a wonderful alpha, he’s able to keep her in line once the story starts going. Other than the running shoes Tilly is apparently always wearing I really liked her. She came off as a very relate-able character. I also loved her best friend, let’s hope she gets a story too. And of course there is some good action in this one as well. I’ll say, in a way, this book also gets a little dark. Not much, but there are a few scenes when I was like… “ohhh where is Harper going to take this?” you know I love some dark tales, but I didn’t know Harper swung that way as well. :) There were only two things that kind of brought down my rating. The first, a minor thing, but we change points of view a lot in this story, there are quite a few characters. Really, we needed it because you need to be able to see the story from all sides and we are given a little warning before the point of view changes, but it took me a while to really jump into the writing because of it. My second, and really only big complaint, is that we were over 42% of the way into the story before our hero and heroine meet. That’s like a full 32% of missed bedroom behavior opportunities. Now don’t get me wrong, when they do get to that point they do it well, but that’s why I wanted more of it. If you’re looking for a little KA alpha feel, check out Unbreakable Hearts and don’t worry about it being book two, you’re good.
