Publisher's Summary

The daughter of a wealthy businessman, Jillian Kincaid grew up with bodyguards shadowing her every move - and she hated it. Now a TV anchorwoman, she refuses to let another hired thug follow her around. Not even when she begins to receive terrifying death threats. Not even when the bodyguard is the darkly seductive Nolan Garrett.

Trained in Special Ops, bodyguard Nolan Garrett has been hired by Jillian's father to keep her out of danger. But it's clear from the start that Jillian isn't going to make his job easy. Far from the spoiled princess he expected, Jillian is tough, independent, and totally sexy. And she's fighting him every step of the way.

As Jillian's stalker raises the stakes, Nolan must keep her close if he wants to keep her alive. But being so close can only turn up the heat that's been simmering between them - a heat that could explode into passion at any moment.

Poor Little Rich Girl

While the suspense part of the plot was well written, I just didn't like poor little rich girl Jillian. Why would an educated professional woman refuse protection after receiving death threats? It made absolutely no sense, considering that money was not an issue.

To the Edge, which I read more than 10 years ago, introduced Nolan and his brothers & sister who owned a private security company. I liked Nolan's commitment to protecting Jillian without becoming a dominant alpha jerk. His sister Eve (ex-FBI) seemed like an interesting character, so I will definitely listen to her book.

Long drawn-out start

I have never read or listened to this author's books. I read the rave reviews and I was sadly disappointed in the end. I listened to 2.5 hours of it and was still waiting for real excitement. The narrator was good and not his fault the story doesn't grab one's attention right from the start. If you enjoy listening to books that do not need your full attention then this book is for you. If you prefer books that you literally cannot put down then I would suggest looking elsewhere,

Loved the story

As much as I loved the story I was a little confused with how it ended. But over all I loved the plot the romance and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series

Too much inner dialogue

What was most disappointing about Cindy Gerard’s story?

Great potential, BUT I don't like it when the story is mostly told in the main characters head instead of by actions.

Have you listened to any of Alastair Haynesbirdge’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Liked the narrator.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Boredom, frustration and impatience. Didn't finish the story.

Love it

I thought the storyline would be cliche. but it wasn't. An excellent who done it. Right to very end. The love story was real and enduring.

Lacks substance

I tried to finish this offering, but could not. It is full of foreplay and sexual innuendos, but lacks a story line that would keep my interest or attention. I got half way through and was through. If there was a plot, none was evident.

A Wounded Warrior trying to stop feeling falls har

Nolan Garrett ex Army Ranger has been trying to drink his feeling of guilt away. One day one of his brothers stops in telling him he looks like shitt an hes damn tired of him trying to drown himself in booze.This time his brother tells him to shower they need to talk.His brothers an his twin sister own a security company that their dad built.They need him to bodyguard Jillian Kincaid,the news anchor? Yes an her father requested you. Before you say no here me out.We are all tied up in another case an her father is paying a lot of money. What Nolan doesn't like is how attracted he is to her .The more he gets to know Jillian the harder it becomes to keep his hands off her.Jillian at first was beyond mad that the arrogant bull headed alpha male was going to be with her til they catch the crazy after her.The chemistry is smoking hot off the charts between Nolan and Jullian.There are so many twists an turns to this story that will have you riveted until the very last page an leave you begging for more.I love the way this amazing author brings the characters to life before your eyes an you can feel their emotions an their pain.I can hardly wait to see what's next by this multi talented author.

Enjoyable

This book was enjoyable with decent character development and a surprise ending. The author brought out some of the difficulty a Veteran has leaving the service and dealing with the aftermath of war. My biggest complaint is that the book had far too much of the character’s thoughts and not enough dialogue. There were times I touched 30 seconds forward just to move the story along! Alastair Haynesbirdge was an excellent narrator! For the most part I could distinguish between the voices with ease. I would recommend this book.
