Former helicopter pilot Maverick Delgardo’s injuries ended his Air Force career, leaving him bitter and one drink away from becoming an alcoholic. When his sister asks for his help on a private protection case to babysit a disgraced pop star, Mav reluctantly agrees.
Deacon Daniels, onetime lead singer and idol to his teenage fans, saw his career and reputation ruined when a reporter’s exposé led to a devastating scandal. Without money or a job, a heartbroken Deacon has lost custody of his baby niece. And just when he thinks his life can’t get any worse, a stalker’s threatening messages escalate to murder.
Mav only agreed to one meeting, but his protective instincts kick in, along with an attraction to Deacon. When the body count increases, however, Mav is unsure he is up to the task of protecting Deacon from a killer. But it is too late for Mav to step away, now that he’s lost his heart, and he must find the strength to reassure Deacon and his niece that they are in safe hands no matter the cost.
I love Victoria Sue’s books and all the worlds she has created so far. It’s a bit like magic 😉 So naturally, I jumped on the chance to read this one. The blurb also sounded like it was right up my alley and thankfully I was right (which shouldn’t be a shock).
Now before I start my review, I would like to give some credit to Jay Aheer for the awesome cover !! Freaking beautiful, if I say so myself.
Maverick Delgardo is a soldier brought down by the injuries he sustained in his last fight. He is left with nothing but self pity and a stiff drink…
Deacon, a famous rockstar, has his own demons to battle… and on top of everything else, a stalker turned murderer, to deal with.
When Mav is being asked by his sister, to protect said rockstar, he is pretty reluctant at first. His reluctance doesn’t stand a chance when he comes face to face with Deacon though. We are talking instant chemistry !!
I am a big fan of mystery/suspense in my romance novels and this book certainly delivered. My favorite part, however, is that we get the stalker/murderers pov. I love it when you get the chance to be inside the “villain’s” head. I can’t say much more than this without spoilering the story.
If you are like me, and you love a bit of mystery/action in your romance then, you should definitely give this one a try. It was sweet, hot, mysterious and romantic…what more does a person need ?? 😉 This story is a complete stand-alone, so you can jump right in it !!
Highly recommended !!
