Genres: Erotica, Fiction, General
I was an ex-con. A convicted killer. And I knew that’s all anyone would ever see me as. At least I thought so…until I met her…
When recent parolee Bobby Cantrell loses yet another job, he resigns himself to the usual struggle of finding a place willing to take a chance on someone with his past. Then, without warning, a gorgeous blonde careens into his life and everything changes.
Carly Prince. Gorgeous. Untouchable. Everything Bobby could ever want and knows he can never have.
Except, maybe, he’s finally found someone who sees the good inside him, something even he can’t see.
What he can’t do, however, is escape from his past. A past that now threatens to destroy the new life he’s building for himself…and threatens people he’s come to care about. Can he save them, or will he have more blood on his hands?

Bobby just cannot catch a break. Yes, he was convicted of a murder and he did his time. Now everything he tries to do to get his life back is just tainted because of this. People cast stones when they do not know what really happened but he gets by. What he doesn’t expect is to meet Carly. A music legend’s daughter decides that she needs Bobby as her bodyguard. The attraction is at an all time high between these two but Bobby feels like his baggage will hurt her personally and professionally.
“Now my instincts were fighting a war. One part of me was telling me to put my mouth on hers. IT was a damn nice mouth, wide and soft and lush, the kind of mouth a guy could spin entire fantasies around. And I’d already had a taste of it. But the other part of me was saying all the things I already knew. She was out of my league. I didn’t deserve her.”
Carly could care less. She can see the real him, the kind no one else can see. She is very assertive when it comes to pursuing him, whether it is personally or professionally. That is what I like most about her character. It was refreshing.
Bobby cant fight the attraction anymore, he starts to care for her. But his past will come back to haunt him. But with the help of Carly and fellow bodyguards, will he be able to battle the fight of his life and realize that he is worth it?
It a story that had me from the get go and honestly I didn’t want to put it down. Even though it was in his point of view, you really got a good sense for all the characters. Makes me want to read more from the characters, Ryan hopefully. I had so many feels in this story and I cannot wait to see more from this duo!
