Former Marine Jude Wilde's motto has always been "burn bridges and never look back," so nobody is more surprised when Wilde Security is hired to protect assistant district attorney Libby Pruitt, the woman he loved and left. Although she makes it clear she wants nothing to do with Jude, they're forced to fake a relationship for her safety. He can't ignore the heat still simmering between them, and when her stalker's threats escalate to attempted murder, he's left with no choice but to whisk her away to a friend's safe house in Key West, FL.
Cooped up in paradise together, Jude begins to chip away at Libby's resolve to hate him. But even as she gives in to his proximity and her body's demands for his, she refuses to fall for his charms again. Maybe a torrid affair in the sun is exactly what she needs to get him out of her system. But when her stalker tracks them down, can they escape the steamy Key West night without anyone getting hurt?
Strong start to this series! We are introduced to Jude Wilde and his 4 brothers, who run Wilde Security. Jude, being the youngest brother, is thought of as the irresponsible, crazy one who doesn't think about his actions and how they affect others. He allows people to see what they want and he is hiding a lot of guilt and pain under his attitude. Jude is forced to confront one of his mistakes, when his brother, Greer, assigns him to protect Libby Pruitt from a stalker. The assignment allows him to show Libby he's not who she remembers and gives him a chance to redeem himself in his brothers' eyes. I really liked Jude and honestly felt for him, when everyone thinks he is just a big screwup. I wanted him to be able to show everyone who he really is and how much it has hurt him when people gave up on him.
All in all it was a great story, the sex scenes were hot and I love how the characters from this series interact so much with ones from the HORNET series!
This is where we will post reviews, pimp books and authors, and announce releases and covers. Enjoy!
