When he hires a bodyguard, he never expected to put his life in the hands of a petite woman with a big attitude. Jax demands the best in everything, and he doesn’t think Delaney has what it takes to protect him. He’d rather have her on her back then covering his.
Will Delaney be able to prove herself to the most arrogant—and devastatingly handsome—man she’s ever met?

This is a quick, fast paced, solid book. It has a little bit of everything to the storyline….love, drama, mystery and angst.
Delaney is a female bodyguard and gets no respect from her fellow male co-workers. When she finally gets a case and can prove to all of them she can do just as good of a job as a man can, she gets Jaxson Shields. Yum, yum, yum….rich, hot hotel gazillionaire…and he does not want a woman bodyguard and he makes no bones about it but Delaney forges forward proving she can do a good job!
Needless to say, not only does Delaney save Jax when there is an attempt on his life, she is getting under his skin….which naturally starts to form an attraction between the two of them…Is this a relationship that can be built on or is it just a fling? Can Delaney keep her head in the game?
The love scenes were smoking hot and the story moved at a fast paced…while it was not a long book it was still packed with enough drama to totally keep me reading until it was done….if your looking for a quick read that holds your interest, this book is it….the whole series is worth checking out…
“On your feet, try again. If you want this, Laney, you have to work hard for it.”
I get to my feet and yell, “I do work hard. Harder than these other naturally built, naturally muscled, naturally able to take down a criminal, men! I don’t have the muscle you guys do, so I work a whole lot harder than them.”
“I don’t doubt it,” he says, jumping from one foot to the other. “But you still need to prove to me that you can do it.”
“Fine,” I grunt.
Then I lunge at him, swinging my right arm. He goes to swat it away and I grin, swinging my leg up and turning my body, swiftly hitting him in the hip. He grunts and spins around, throwing a punch towards my stomach. I take a few steps back and the moment I stop moving he lunges at me, all six feet of terrifying male. I think quickly and drop down low, catching him around the thighs and using all my body strength to drive my shoulder into the soft flesh there.
“Fuck, I have balls, woman!” he grunts.
“You never said I had to play fair.” I pant, shoving my shoulder harder into his groin. “You just said I have to take you down.”
“Without making me infertile,” he barks, using his foot to kick mine out from beneath me.
I go down, my face falling right into his groin as my legs go out from beneath me. My open, gasping mouth hits his . . . well . . . manly parts and I let go quickly, stumbling back onto the mat. I screech to the high heavens as laughter fills the room, and I realize everyone just saw my mouth cover my boss’ dick. I stick my tongue out and start rubbing it frantically. “Gross, oh God!”
“How does boss cock taste?” Devon, another one of the team members, yells out through laughter.
“Shut up, Dev,” Nak barks, but I can hear the humor in his voice.
I look up at him, standing over me. “Why did you do that? I just got a mouthful of . . . of . . . ugh, oh my god.”
He smirks. “I didn’t know you were going to try and take a bite, sweetheart.”
“I wasn’t trying to take a bite,” I yell, standing and continuing to rub my fingers over my tongue as if that will do anything.
“Looks like princess has a new move.” Kyle laughs from the sidelines. “So tell me, Laney, are you going to take down a guy by having a bite of his dick? I guess it’s an effective method. Whatever works for you. You are only a girl, after all.”
My cheeks burn and shame rises in my belly. They think I’m a great big joke. All of them are standing there, laughing, so sure I’m never going to be a part of their team.
“How do sweaty balls taste?” someone else yells out.
“Aw, stop it,” Kyle croons. “Princess is upset.”
They’ve called me princess since the moment I joined the team, and right up until now I’ve been okay with it—I took it good-naturedly. Not today, though. Anger bubbles in my chest and shame rips through my veins, making my whole body feel tingly and hot. I shoot daggers at Kyle, and before I think about it, I charge towards him.
His eyes widen for a split second before he takes a step back and his hands go up. He’s not quick enough, I catch him around the waist and he stumbles backwards, losing his footing. His big body sways and it’s not hard to shove once more with all my might and take him down. We go together, me landing on top of him. I straddle his hips and lift a hand, slapping his face so hard his head swings to the side.
“Who’s a princess now, jackass!” I bark.
Then I get off him, glaring at the rest of the team as I storm into the elevator.
