MMA fighter Miles Dartman’s casual arrangement with personal shopper Maxi Nevar would be many men’s fantasy. She seeks him out, they have mindblowing sex, she leaves. Rinse, repeat. Yet lately, Miles wants more. And when Maxi requests his services via the Body Armor security agency, he’s ready to finally break through her defenses—and protect her day and night.
Receiving a large inheritance has brought chaos and uncertainty into Maxi’s life. Her ex has resurfaced, along with lots of former “friends,” and someone is making mysterious threats. Then there’s Miles, who doesn’t ask for anything…except her trust. Pleasure is easy. Now Maxi has to give her heart as well as her body…or risk losing a man who could be everything she needs.
Miles and Maxi were interesting. I liked the idea that they were a previous "series of one night stands" and that there was an attraction and a reluctant trust (at least reluctant on her part) between them.
I thought this was an interesting place to start a story, with a potential stalker and a need of a bodyguard, and already knowing and trusting the person you are hiring.
There was a bit of an attachment to him that pulled the relationship forward, and I liked and thought that this part was a little off...I think I wanted them to be together before he was the reason that she was safe at home...but at the same time, I see the plot development there as Maxi would likely never have been willing to have the relationship progress without this need between them.
I did enjoy this overall. There were parts of it that felt a little formulaic, mainly the reason they were together, but it didn't really pull me out of the story all that much and I enjoyed the book.
I recommend this title.
