Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
Synopsis: He was hired to protect her.
Watching gorgeous Gwen Hawthorne wasn’t a hard job—but it certainly was tempting. Chance Valentine had tried to keep his distance from the sexy socialite for years, but when her father hired him to keep watch on her—as a twenty-four, seven bodyguard—Chance knew his control was about to be pushed to the limit.
He’d never wanted another woman the way he desired her. Hot. Intense. Consuming. Being so close to Gwen, Chance knew that he wouldn’t be able to resist her. So he gave into his need, her need, and he took them both to the edge of a dark and consuming desire.
But Chance soon realizes that he isn’t the only one watching Gwen. Someone else is out there, a stalker who won’t rest until Gwen is destroyed. Every day, every moment…Gwen is in danger. And Chance knows that if he can’t unmask the stalker, then he may just lose the only woman he has ever loved.

If you’ve been following my blog for a little while you might know that I’m addicted to book written by Cynthia Eden. So when I saw a new book of her on NetGalley I had – HAD – to click request. I know
but I just can’t seem to help myself.
I almost always enjoy her books and it wasn’t different with this one.
Chance and Gwen were nice main characters. You could feel their chemistry even though Chance tries not to act on it – at first.
The secondary characters were interesting as well and I hope to see a lot more of Lex, Dev, Sophie and even Ethan.
Sad thing though I knew almost from the beginning who the bad person was.
It was just obvious and my gut kept telling me that I was right.
Still I enjoyed this and I keep looking forward to “Want Me”, the second book in the series featuring Jex and Sophie.
Oh, just one more little thing, then I’m done: why did you have to name him Chance? When I first read the name I immediately had to think of the tv show “Human Target”. Does anyone remember this show?
4 out of 5 stars
