Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Aly Martinez comes a hot-new series of alpha bodyguards.
She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.
I hadn't been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.
Heroes aren't always saints. Sometimes, we're nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.
And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.
But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn't the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I'd burn the world down to protect.

Jude was a Cop who got a call that would change his career and his future.. because that call led him to an out of control house fire and a frantic woman trapped on an upstairs balcony. It should never be advised but the roof was her only option so Jude told her to climb.. and she did - but then she fell and Jude's life was forever changed. In the years that followed horrific nightmares were a constant reminder of his mistake, of his butterfly - the woman who survived the fire and the fall despite his bad advice.

Rhion is a survivor and she shows her tattooed over scarred arms with pride.. but she lives in fear of her brother - because he's the violent person who started the fire, wants her fortune and her death. Rhion never ventures out, is protected by various members of Guardian Security and their offices are only a couple of floors away from her apartment. So Rhion feels safe as she writes her romance books which are fuelled by her passionate thoughts of Jude.. the stranger who saved her life all those years ago. And then Guardian take on a new Bodyguard and Rhion comes face to face with her dream man.. and Jude comes face to face with the woman from his nightmares.. his butterfly.

These two characters are instantly drawn to one another and when Alpha hottie Jude becomes aware that Rhion is in danger it brings out his possessive and protective side too. There's drama, emotional turmoil, sexy times, passion, some angst, good secondary characters and a tension-filled twist that puts Rhion's life in danger as the addictive well-written storyline plays out. But perception is the shocker here because Rhion's vivid recollections of that fateful night and what subsequently followed don't match Jude's guilty ones. Dual POV and great narration.

Worth a credit? Yes.. and it's a good start to a new Bodyguard series as you are introduced to some of the team.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Perfectly Flawed

I didn't even read the blurb before diving into this one so I had to no idea what to expect but I am so glad I picked this one up. It was so very good.

There is romance, suspense and humor all mixed up with familial drama and some hot, hot loving. All my boxes are checked.

Jason Carpenter and Andi Arndt were perfection. They always are. I don't even need to review their audio because if you look up the definition of good audio, their faces are plastered there.

My only issue is that this book travelled from past to present and there were no clear markings of which time period the chapter started with, so I would constantly be pulled out of the book not knowing where we were.
