Private Bodyguard by Tyler Anne Snell
About the Book:
Orion Security Group’s mission is to protect those in serious danger. So when Oliver Quinn’s latest assignment unexpectedly brings him back into Darling Smith’s life, he knows it’s going to be his most challenging case yet. And from the moment he comes face-to-face with the beauty from his past, Oliver can’t deny their history is going to make for some tension-filled days—and frustrating nights. But keeping her safe, even though she denies she needs his help, has to come before exploring their lingering feelings. She may not have asked for his protection, but with the killer on her trail, she can’t afford not to have it…
Miss Riki’s Review:
This book has everything you could possibly ask for in a romantic suspense, including two super strong lead characters with tons of on-the-page chemistry, a deftly plotted mystery, and a villain you can totally boo at along the way. Wrap that all up with a swoon worthy romance and add a unique twist that you won’t see coming, and you pretty much have the perfect read.
You can’t talk about this wonderful book without speaking highly of our main character Darling. She’s everything I love in a romance heroine, with tons of spunk, (although don’t call her spunky- she prefers cute!) and total smarts. I knew from the very first page where she finds herself in jail for snooping and butts heads with an old flame that this girl was something special. You just can’t help but root for this girl to find her HEA.
And then there’s Oliver. Damn, is he ever special?! He finds out that Darling in involved in a big case and immediately knows that sparks are going to fly. I mean, these two characters have a his-tor-y. With a capital H. and he broke Draling’s heart. Bad Oliver! But- lucky for readers, this is a wonderful second chance romance, and he gets the chance to prove to Darling that all of that can be part of their past as they find love once again.
As for the mystery, this book moves at a quick pace and is a total page-turner. Each chapter ends in a way that left me hanging on to the next word to find out what happened next. And the twist. OMG- THE TWIST. You will never see that one coming, and it’s so deliciously intriguing.
If you’re looking for a fast-paced, swoon-worthy romance with plenty of taut action and spine-tingling suspense, this book will make you very, very happy. Plus- it’s the first in the Orion Security series, so you know there’s more goodness to come!
