He was sent to guard her body... he didn't expect her to steal his heart.

Her sister's wedding was hardly the place to find a hook up, but after one look at friend-of-the-groom and special operative Josiah Grant, small-town Texas beauty Magnolia West immediately fell in lust. After a stunningly sensual night together, Maggie is prepared for the two of them to go their separate ways. After all, she's not a happily-ever-after kind of girl. But Josiah--and danger--change her plans.

Josiah isn't looking for love...but Maggie rouses his body and stirs his heart like no other woman. She's got a rocky romantic past, and a smart man would steer clear. But when the murder quotient in Kendall County rises and all signs point to a mysterious group nearby who have been harassing Maggie's family, he can't leave her unprotected--especially when he realizes he's fallen hard for her.

As tension mounts and the menace closes in, Josiah will do anything to prove to Maggie that their love is real...but can they stay alive long enough to share it?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley, Berkley Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
My Thoughts
My first Shayla Black novel and certainly not my last! This was one FANTASTIC read! There was the perfect amount of passionate sparks flying, the perfect characters, and an incredibly suspenseful plot line. I loved it all!
Josiah and Magnolia are amazing characters. They both quickly stole my heart. I loved the sparks that flew between them instantly and ended with their one night stand. Watching Josiah and Magnolia together was an epic ride, especially when the suspense hits the story and Josiah’s protective side comes out.
Black has a unique writing style. She instantly hooks me from page one. The characters became my friends and the plot line played out like an intense movie. This is book is definitely worthy of high recs and 4 stars! I can’t wait to go back and read book 1!
