“He appeared like a white knight, unshaven, unshowered, ready to do battle for the people he loved. He exuded manliness and safety, like a king swearing to protect the realm.
It was a beautiful thing and yet, troubling. I didn’t know where my place was in his kingdom, or if I wanted a place in it at all.”
CD Reiss is one author I have been meaning to read for a while now. I generally enjoy my Hollywood based love stories and the synopsis sounded really interesting with the whole stalker aspect and the bodyguard, who would risk his life to save hers… how could I not jump on this bandwagon?
Emily and Darlene are the ultimate BFF’s and have been since childhood; they met during gymnastics camp and bonded over their love of singing and dancing instantly. They both had the same dream, being a singing and dancing superstar. They both moved to LA to ‘make it’ and had the same auditions, the same agent and also were a duet at one point.
Unfortunately for Emily stardom was not to be. When she started a relationship with a really possessive and jealous guy, she decided to give up her dreams, as he didn’t like people staring at her and did not like her in the spotlight. She made the hard decision to move behind the scenes and use her talent to choreograph dance routines for Darlene instead. Sick and tired of being weak and insecure Emily ended the relationship.
Ending the relationship was just the start of Emily’s problems as he became a crazy stalker. Darlene is about to go on tour and everyone, including Emily, is busy preparing for the upcoming shows, so they have decided to hire added security… Enter sexy as sin bodyguard Carter.
Carter is an ex-LAPD, tall, dark, handsome and mysterious guy and is the most beautiful man Emily has ever laid eyes on. Their connection and attraction towards each other was instantaneous and they literally could not keep their eyes off each other. The way the two would steal glances of each other across the room was too cute and they seemed to quickly understand each other. I knew it was only a matter of time for Emily and Carter to give in the growing attraction.
The mystery and anticipation of the crazy stalker ex kept me on the edge of seat along with the man who was hired to protect her made me positively swoon. The story was fast-paced and well written with interesting characters, secrets, twists and turns that will keep you enthralled, entertained and flipping those pages as quick as humanly possible. I absolutely recommend you one click this one if you love your hot, single dad, protective heroes and you’re heroines who find their way and become stronger when you least expect it.
About the Author
CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.
Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to chop a cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
