Publisher's Summary

Isabelle Ballantine has been fighting for independence since she was old enough to walk. Now that she’s finally out from under her father’s shadow, she won’t let anyone stand in her way. It’s tough living on her own, working in a bar and keeping her true identity a secret, but things start to look up when a sexy new stranger walks into her life. After working side by side for weeks, Izzy can’t figure out why he won’t make a move….
To cinch the deal of a lifetime, Adam Marcellus agrees to help Izzy’s eccentric father convince his daughter to move home. He’d assumed Izzy would be another spoiled rich princess, but he’s surprised to discover his feelings for her are stronger than anything he’s ever experienced. When a deranged stalker targets her, Adam finds himself fighting not only an unknown threat but an unexpected attraction to the one woman he can’t have….

Another winner by this talented author

Another absolutely great story by this talented author, filled with lots of suspense, edge of your seat moments and of course romance.
The story centers around Isabelle/Izzy Ballantine and Adam Marcellus.
Izzy is working in a bar far from home , much to her father’s dismay. He’s very rich and wants her to move back home. She wants to spread her wings , and get away from his overprotectiveness. There she meets a new hire, Adam. Little does she know that he’s been hired to protect her and convince her to return home. If he does that , he gets a contract with Izzy’s father.
But lies of omission usually come back to haunt you, and what you think you wanted , really is not want you want at the end.
But the road to happiness will be a tough one. Trust is tested, forgiveness might not come , danger is around the corner, but hope endures.
As always, the author gives us an engaging plot and characters that are complex and imperfect. I specially appreciate the fact that the female character is a strong woman.
The narrator , Gabra Zackman does an excellent job with the voices.

Silly and boring

Just not good, the writing is shallow. Slow moving story, The narrator is decent except for when she’s doing Adams voice, then unfortunately she sounds exactly like Holly Hunter, which is off-putting as the hero.
