Publisher's Summary

Personal Protection specialist Ava Rome follows three rules: A professional never calls attention to herself or her principal; a professional never leaves her principal; and, the most important rule, a professional never gets involved with her principal. To break the rules is to die.
Paul, her principal, comes from a powerful family with many enemies. Murder and kidnapping are just means of business in Paul's family. Ava believes he is not like the rest of them. Good looking, intelligent, he has everything women want. And many women want him, which makes Ava's job harder. Does she want him too? She recognizes that the greatest threat comes not from the outside, but from her own growing desire. In order to save them both, Ava must leave Paul, against his wishes and in violation of one of her rules.
Ava was wrong. A greater threat lurks outside Paul's secure compound. Two threats, in fact. One human and the other a hurricane. Ava focuses on the hurricane. She and Paul make preparations to ride out the storm. It arrives and so does the intruder. Now Ava is in a fight for her life as nature's fury assaults the house from the outside and a serial rapist stalks her on the inside.

Any additional comments?

Ava, the female lead, is a protection specialist. Her job is to keeps her clients alive.
Her new client, Paul, is lying about his name which makes Ava wonder what else he is lying

The threat against Paul is real, so,
Ava has to attend classes and other functions with Paul while he works on his degree.
He only needs Ava's help for one semester, however, its not going to be as easy as it sounds.

The story takes place in Hawaii which is a great setting for the story to take place.

Overall, this book was a Good Read filled Action, Well Written Characters, and a Likable Female Lead

As usual, Julie Hoverson did well with the narration.

Any additional comments?

I felt like it threw me into the middle of a story and it was confusing and disorientating. Not a good foundation build-up in the beginning and it left me frustrated.

received free in exchange for an honest review.
