Head of the new personal safety department for Hawk Elite Security, Tancredo Byrne is very serious about teaching his clients how to stay safe. With a file two inches thick confirming Elizabeth Whitney as a world champion athlete, he's prepared to take on his newest assignment as the vacation he hasn't had in over five years. A little instruction, a couple hockey games on the side, and he'll be on his way to the next spoiled rich kid.
Elizabeth takes one look at Tancredo and it doesn't matter that she can perform a triple lutz-toe loop blindfolded. Clumsy becomes her middle name. Though trusting people outside her family has never been her strong suit, she finds herself drawn to the easy-going man who is supposed to make her into a superwoman. But she's been burned by those fickle feelings of attraction before and isn't about to let them ruin her life again.
As their training intensifies, the threats to Elizabeth darken, and Tan realizes that what should have been a cake walk is a fight between life and death.
While I enjoyed this book I had a wave of different emotions the entire time. The unexpected romance between the two characters that was described often made me smile while reading. Other times I was anxious wondering when her violent ex would come in to the story, giving Tan the opportunity to save the day. Also I was often shocked when people I didn’t expect wanted to hurt Liz. I think this is a very good book and it gave me some insight on how difficult it can be for a survivor of domestic violence to put down her guard and love again.
