My Review 

I have not read the Cole brothers book one but you can read book two as a stand alone. Am I going to read more from this author you can bet I am! This is a steamy romance novel following Ela is trying to stop her step father from selling her home and enlists the help of Matt Cole a marine now turned body guard who must save ela from the danger she has been put in. Two broken people trying to follow their hearts but also have their life on the line. Yes please! Right from the get go we see that these characters have an amazing chemistry and we feel the need they have for one another. This story is fast paced and action packed that makes you want to continue reading well into the night! Such an awesome read that you must give a try if you are a fan of contemporary romance.
