He likes to be in control…
It’s like this: I’m the hottest restauranteur on the west coast. I work hard, play hard, and love my family. I’m also the guy on the receiving end of some unwelcome threats and fixation. Then Pascale Nichols walks back into my life, and I forget about everything but her. They say lightening never strikes twice, but she’s the one that got away. She’s also, I soon discover, the one my family *secretly* hired to protect me. Am I mad? Hell, yes. Am I game to play along? You bet.
She’s in over her head…
Everyone knows and loves Ethan Auprince. With his sexy-as-sin dimples and crazy likeability, he’s always the center of attention. I’ve been tasked with protecting celebrities, bigwigs, and high-ranking officials, but when I come face-to-face with the man I spent one incredible summer with, I’m in trouble. A careless mistake on my last assignment cost me, and now Ethan is looking at me like he wants to devour me, not cooperate with my subtle instructions while I work under the guise of his restaurant manager.
My reputation is at risk. His safety is on the line. But worse, were falling in love again.

I really enjoyed the first book In this series, Heartthrob and was looking forward to a follow up on some of the other characters in this follow up Sweet Talker. Ethan, a restaurant owner of one of the hottest places around who is gorgeous and rich is being stalked. Although that whole stalker storyline is never really developed and left hanging. However, unbeknownst to him, his family hires a bodyguard to keep an eye on him.
A new manager is hired because the old one is leaving and he gets the shock of his life when he realizes it’s an old flame, Pascale. Only Pascale isn’t just his new manager, she is the anonymous bodyguard.
The story felt disjointed and I couldn’t sense the chemistry. It felt like there were parts of the storyline missing. I wanted to like it because the first one was such a standout but this 2nd book just left me wanting more. But you may enjoy it all the same. Give it a try.
