A VIP assignment…
an unexpected consequence!
Ex-SAS officer Jacob Wolfe’s latest job, as aristocrat Charlotte Pemberton’s bodyguard, is pushing him to his limits. Never one to step over the line, he’s determined to ignore their intense connection. Until a single dance leads to a forbidden kiss… and Jacob is tempted to break all his rules. But their resulting night together has an unexpected consequence…
I really enjoyed reading this romantic and charming book. I loved the writing style and the descriptive words. I’ve grown really fond of Harlequin books and find it the perfect means of escapism. This book was no different.
Charlotte Pemberton, what a character. I adored her from the beginning, the way she was and carried herself. Even the name is stunning! A beautiful, strong yet sweet, career women with hidden depths. Her main priority was work and due to her past experiences, which we found out later on, she found it hard to trust people. Hosting her first fashion show in New York, she was there to work – no mixing business with pleasure!
Jacob a caring, hardworking, body guard that was hired to look after Charlotte on her trip to New York. As soon as they got put together, you could feel the chemistry and the connection. As much as Charlotte didn’t want a bodyguard I thought they were great together. With Jacob one to stick by the rules, he looked after Charlotte from a professional view and soon realised she wasn’t the princess he expected. Which only complicated matters even more so, as they both knew that nothing could happen between them!
I loved the suspense of this, knowing they were both holding back. It kept you reading and invested to see what was going to happen. The author had me captivated and intrigued all throughout.
This had two perfect settings:
I loved the New York setting, the fashion element, the apartment and Charlotte’s outfits. I was getting Sex and the City vibes. I wanted to go to Aurora and shop until I dropped!
Also Chatsworth Manor sounded delightful. I loved the Chatsworth gardens the best and the flowers in it, how pretty and serene. No wonder Charlotte felt so at ease there. I thought it was described wonderfully. As was the mouth-watering food throughout the book.
As well as romance and chemistry this book had a nice humour to it – the plane scene going to New York. The whisky drinking at Chatsworth Manor. Stephen playing the perfect big brother role. The way he was had me in giggles.
I highly recommend reading this and hope you love it as much as I did.
