Simply put… she’s beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn’t believe she’s in any real danger, the President isn’t willing to take chances with her life.
As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I’d ever thought possible. When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I’ve fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I’ll rain down on those that threaten her.
This fast-paced romantic suspense hooked me right from the first page and kept me entertained until the very end. I love how this author creates likable, well-developed characters and mixes that right amount of action and suspense with romance and kindle-melting chemistry.
Barrett is an exceptionally brilliant scientist who happens to be the niece of the president and her research has put her in the sights of some rather unsavory people. With her life on the line, the president turns towards retired secret service agent and current Jameson Force Security member, Cruce. Cruce is in full blown protective mode and sparks fly as these two find themselves in the cross hairs of someone who wants to steal Barrett’s free energy formula.
Cruce is everything that I hoped for as a hero in that he is strong, sexy, and very protective of Barrett. He seems to really understand her and her hyper-focused mindset, but he also helps draw her out of her work bubble. I was concerned that with Barrett’s single-minded focus on work that she would be difficult to related to, but I was very wrong. She is an engaging heroine that is kind, highly intelligent, and comes to recognize through her time with Cruce that she is missing out on simply living life. The two of them are opposites and it was fun to watch their relationship evolve into something that went beyond client and bodyguard. This book has a fair amount of action and suspense which I loved and I also enjoyed seeing of the other members from Jameson Force Security. While this is book 2 in the series, Cruce and Barrett’s story can be read as a standalone. I received an early complimentary version of this book.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.
Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.
Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.
