Captain Aaron “Ace” Trainer is assigned to protect a witness who will be testifying against a drug trafficking ring. The problem? It’s a woman he’s known since high school. A woman he’s never been able to forget. A woman he had a one-night stand with years earlier.
Rachel finds herself in big trouble. She’s gotten involved with an organization that wants her dead. She’s shocked to learn that Ace will be her bodyguard—the same man who treated her so badly after their night of hot sex many years ago. Now her life is in his hands. He’s still hot as hell and as sexy as ever, but he’s also just as arrogant and irritating.
Stuck in the forest, running for their lives, Ace and Rachel put aside the past and rekindle the fire that never went out. This time it’s more than hot sex—their passion turns emotional. Only their newfound love and trust in each other will be enough to save them. Rachel’s just not sure it will last this time, either.
The blurb pretty much sums up the entire novella.
Ace took the job to protect Rachel as a way to make up for leaving her after their one night together. The way he figures it, he’ll be able to make sure Rachel is safe and then go on his way. Of course that doesn’t happen, but when does anything go according to plan?
Rachel aka Kitty is going to testify against the drug dealers who are trying to kill her no matter what it takes. Her life as a college professor changed drastically once someone started threatening her. After several close calls, the cops decide to send her up to a camping retreat with a bodyguard.
When Rachel realizes that Ace is her bodyguard, she instantly flashes back to the amazing sex they had. I would say about 50% of this 80 page book was sex. There was way too much use of the “c” word. I’m not prude enough to never want to read that word, but it was just too much here.
