    I understand it should be upsetting, and it was for a while, but now I m just numb My feelings ran dry the day I came home to a house surrounded by yellow police tape and a guarded door.I shut downThis is Elise in a nutshell when we first meet her in this story She is closed off and completely alone after her mother, father, and younger sister were brutally murdered She is starting her first year of college, this is where she meets Braxton and he completely turns her world upside downI understand it should be upsetting, and it was for a while, but now I m just numb My feelings ran dry the day I came home to a house surrounded by yellow police tape and a guarded door.I shut downThis is Elise in a nutshell when we first meet her in this story She is closed off and completely alone after her mother, father, and younger sister were brutally murdered She is starting her first year of college, this is where she meets Braxton and he completely turns her world upside down Braxton is simply amazing I completely fell in love with him almost immediately Right away we find out that Brax is hiding something from Elise Instead of being the student she believes him to be, he has actually been hired to look after her As if this isn t complicated enough, Brax is drawn to Elise like a moth to a flame The moment he saw her photo he knew he just HAD TO be the one to protect her I have a feeling that as soon as I get close to Elise, I won t be able to stay away This problem, a conflict of interest if you will, but I can t stop now If she needs to be saved, even if it only from herself, I ll be the one to do it. And the intense feelings are definitely mutualThere is something about him that makes my mind twist, my stomach turn, and my cheeks blush all at the same time. Up to this point, Elise Elle has been able to stay pretty invisible, but Brax is such a force and so full of life He is able to bring her out of her shell and open her up to people and love At first I thought it seemed a little unbelievable that Elle would open up and trust Brax so quickly, but then I thought about it She hasn t had anyone take an interest in her or push her to have a life again, I felt like Brax s energy was contagious and she couldn t help but feel safe and protected enough to live again He is so beautifully protective, loving, and supportive of her and I absolutely loved him Damn that man He has done something no one else has done for the past three years He has made my heart beat again, made me feel something, and goddamn if I don t wantof him. Brax and Elle get pretty serious pretty damn fast It didn t feel like insta love exactly but it was very intense from the beginning Their chemistry is seriously on fire and the steamy sexy scenes are fabulous photo booth anyone smirks There is a fair amount of lovey dovey sappiness there too though And while that could easily annoy me and did at times , it was kind of okay because I could really feel their love and passion for each other Then there is the suspenseful side of the story The whole reason that Brax is there as Elle s security is because there is someone threatening her life Why We don t really know that for sure, there could be a number of reasons Her father left her as the majority shareholder in his multi million billion maybe dollar company Also, her family s killer was never found There are a few sub plots with Brax, his employer and other things that add new twists and turns, one in particular was pretty freaking shocking to me I love romantic suspense stories, but I felt the execution could have been a little smoother here Some things didn t really make sense to me and the dialogue between Brax and Shay Brax s best friend and partner who I love was a little hard to follow Felt like an information dump at times and really messed with the flow for me And as much as I love Brax, he came off as a little incompetent with his security skills at times I would also have loved to seeaction and big moves Much of the story was hearing the internal emotional goings on of Brax and Elle and their intense, deep, almost overwhelming devotion to each other This kind of overshadowed the seriousness of Elle being in danger in my eyes This is part of a series and does leave many things hanging in the balance and questions unanswered The prologue is a pretty good indicator of where the story is headed and it definitely peaked my interest right away I am really looking forward toin this series and I have high hopes for the suspense aspect of the story, since I already know B.J Harvey has the love element down pat When you had no hope, then had hope reborn, and then all that hope disappears within a moment where do you go ARC received in exchange for an honest review

    This book had such high ratings, I thought I was going to love it And at first I did, the blurb got me interested and then the prologue had me hooked.But then after that everything went horribly sour Firstly let me point out that this book was written in the first person and was mainly told from the hero and heroine s POV I have no problem with a story written in the first person but with this one I felt like I was being told everything by the hero and heroine, what I mean is there wasn t enou This book had such high ratings, I thought I was going to love it And at first I did, the blurb got me interested and then the prologue had me hooked.But then after that everything went horribly sour Firstly let me point out that this book was written in the first person and was mainly told from the hero and heroine s POV I have no problem with a story written in the first person but with this one I felt like I was being told everything by the hero and heroine, what I mean is there wasn t enough dialogue Hardly any conversation for about 50% of the book And then to make it evendisastrous, the book would randomly skip time For example 2 months later, 1 month later At this point I was contemplating abandoning it and reading something else The heroine Elle Elise is an heiress who s family was murdered a few years ago while she was away at a school camp She lost her parents and younger sister So as you might have guessed she is a broken young woman who finds it difficult to let outsiders in She meets Brax in her economics class in college and they are immediately in insta love Don t get me wrong I love insta love, but it has to be convincing And I m very sorry to say that in this case it wasn t I didn t feel any chemistry in Brax and Elle s relationship everything felt forced And for a girl who doesn t trust anyone Elle didn t put up much of a fight with Brax.I didn t have much of a problem with Brax s character, he was your typical hot alpha male who wanted to protect his woman But Elle got on my nerves she went from timid and introverted to hot sexy vixen way too quickly I don t want to say muchbecause I ll end up giving the story away But one last thing that had me grinding my teeth was the CLIFFY Looking at it now it was a pretty good one if the actual story had been just as good But to be honest I feel cheated

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Although I finished the book, I did skim through a lot of the book due to too many lovey dovey scenes They seemed to kiss, cuddle, eat toast, and drink a lot of coffee Some things that I thought stood out, no matter how little or big, that slightly irked me were After her dad died stockholders lost confidence and the company stocks went down, leading me to believe that this is a huge publicly traded company But later in the story, the heroin was described as holding 60% of the company stock Although I finished the book, I did skim through a lot of the book due to too many lovey dovey scenes They seemed to kiss, cuddle, eat toast, and drink a lot of coffee Some things that I thought stood out, no matter how little or big, that slightly irked me were After her dad died stockholders lost confidence and the company stocks went down, leading me to believe that this is a huge publicly traded company But later in the story, the heroin was described as holding 60% of the company stock and Harry, only 40% So it s a privately held or publicly held company I was slightly confused It has a huge difference to the plot if it s actually held privately or publicly All the terms of endearment wore on me The hero used things like, hon, sweetheart, darlin, and my dear I just felt like those are terms your grandmother would use to address you not a hot undercover agent guy Especially not my dear I couldn t really connect with the characters I don t if it was the instant love theme and the hurried back story explanations that weren t that character focused I just didn t feel like the characters were very 3 dimensional I didn t really feel sympathetic to the heroin I don t know why Just didn t One other thing I noticed was the mention that the hero bugged her apartment Then who was listening Brax Shay Their boss that isn t suppose to know Brax has been dating Elle But he would know if he could hear them together hanging out Who hired these guys to watch her Who s paying them How would they know she was in danger if no one told them She didn t know, so she obviously didn t hire them or tell anyone Harry didn t hire them Did Aunt Sylvie Who Why would it even be on their radar that she was in danger if they don t even know who is threatening her I was completely lost on this point Unless it was mentioned on a kissing lovey dovey scene that i skimmed through, I didn t ever catch who did the hiring Why did he leave I was lost Elle was in danger before Brax showed up to protect her or why would he be there By the way, he did a bad job of protecting her Then, later, it turns out that Elle was indanger because Brax was there I was confused So his being there protecting her put her indanger Then why was he there in the first place I m sure there s an explanation but it needs to be cleaned up in the first novel in the series Leave a tiny mystery trail for conflict in the next book in the series, but you have to solve the major mystery in the 1st book I m left confused The last blow for me was the end of the book was ruined Why did the author tell me how the book ends in the Prologue I still had hope for the end of the book or I wouldn t have read the whole damn thing, besides skipping the lovey dovey scenes The end of the book is blow by the Prologue The writing was well done in general though I ll readfrom the author in the future, this was a debut novel but there were just a few things in the story that i wasn t able to overlook

    I really wanted to like this story but the inconsistent and poorly thought out story prevented me Shoot It s fun to have intrigue in a romance story, sure, and it s fun when there s an electric spark between characters who shouldn t find one.Elle, a surprisingly naive teenager away at college, meets and quickly falls in love with Brax when they meet cute in a shared class He is, unbeknownst to Elle, a security officer, hired to watch her not sure if it s to protect her or unwittingly hel I really wanted to like this story but the inconsistent and poorly thought out story prevented me Shoot It s fun to have intrigue in a romance story, sure, and it s fun when there s an electric spark between characters who shouldn t find one.Elle, a surprisingly naive teenager away at college, meets and quickly falls in love with Brax when they meet cute in a shared class He is, unbeknownst to Elle, a security officer, hired to watch her not sure if it s to protect her or unwittingly help the bad guys truthfully, I was tuned out by that point He is 25, out of the military, and has his own troubled backstory His best friend, Shay, is also on Elle s security detail.While these two men mean well, they are clearly in over their heads and or too stupid inexperienced to provide proper security It s embarrassing to read, cringe worthy, some of their boneheaded choices.And then there s the sex Well, there s a lot of it and the amount of it feelslike a sixteen year old boy s fantasy of all sex, all the time not really, but close My eyes would roll when I d come to yet another sex scene which just never felt organic and never felt hot Why did Elle and Brax love each other What was so magnetic about their connection The author chooses to use mostly alternating POVs, Elle s and Brax s, but then for whatever farchadat reason she throws in a few from Shay who is most definitely a supporting player and then some from their superiors at the security firm for which they work those characters aren t even tertiary they are so out of the loop story wise I understand the author was trying to relay some information, but she has got to figure out a different way of doing so because it was simply jarring.A personal bone of contention is that the book was riddled with misspellings and grammatical errors, which I HATE It takes me right out of the story, every single one That made for an esp bumpy ride Granted, other issues were also taking me out of this story, but ugh I feel like this story could have been something The author needed a strong and experienced editor to guide her unfortunately, that didn t happen.Similar story done much better is Wait for Me by Elisabeth Naughton

    Oh dear, I was so disappointed with book, I thought it had a great plot and at first I loved the characters but overall it bored me.I love books where you get the male and female POVs you generally get a real deeper connection with them, but I didn t feel it with these I didn t feel the chemistry and I just felt the story got a bit confusing, yeh it ends on a cliff hanger but honestly I m not bothered about the second book, sorry just not for me.
