Interior decorator Suzanne Barron's new tenant is the most dangerously sexy man she's ever met. Navy Commander John Huntington, a former SEAL (aka 'Midnight Man') works best under cover of darkness. Within hours of meeting him, Suzanne has wild, no-holds barred sex with John, then panics at the depth of her passionate response to such a powerful and dangerous warrior.
Suzanne doesn't do sex like that. John is definitely someone she needs to avoid for her own peace of mind. But when killers come for her, Suzanne knows she can turn to only one man. John will guard and protect her body. But who will guard and protect her body against John?
The thing that I love about Lisa Marie Rice—and is absolutely true about this book as well—is how much her heroes ADORE the heroines. From moment one, when John sees Suzanne he is done. Hooked. She is it for him. There is something just so simply romantic about how she sets that up, and this seems to be true in all of her work, that makes the book feel like an old fashioned love story even as it is also an erotic novel and a contemporary suspense story.
John is a hot, ex- Navy Seal, who runs a security company and Suzanne is a sheltered interior designer who thinks of blue as ‘teal’ and has no idea what she’s in for with John. Still, John risks everything for Suzanne and there love is passionate and it feels very real. I might have liked to have fewer external characters running around but it was a small problem.
I loved this book!
