When Jace moves in with Amy to protect her from a predator, romance blooms, and Amy wonders who will protect her heart.
Denver’s Average Amy does TV reviews for the latest trends, but when her name ends up on a human trafficking website, life feels anything but average. Especially when old crush turned hot Navy SEAL Jace Burns shows up at her door offering protection. Protection from who? What? And did she already mention hot?
Jace Burns is known for his fearless nature. He’s risked his life overseas, endured time as a prisoner of war, and was even presumed dead. Too bad all that goes out the window when he comes face to face with Amy Nelson. He hadn’t paid close attention to her in high school but he’s paying attention now.
While romantic sparks fly and the danger begins to grow, one question fills Amy’s mind: Are Jace’s feelings real, or is he using her to help take down the threat?
Rating: Moderate. Moderate crude humor/language; passionate kissing; moderate violence or horror.
I think this book is well written and it takes on a tough subject in human trafficking. If only all traffickers could be taken down like this book shows. I liked the characters but it kept bugging me that Jace wasn’t all professional despite his feelings for her. Since they based their attraction to each other on flirting in high school and one almost kiss I feel like the attraction during the story was pretty much hormonal and not based on anything beyond physical attraction. And while that can grow as they go through time, they were both thinking about kissing each other before they spent any time together. I didn’t enjoy that aspect of the story.
The intrigue was good and interesting. We got enough of the picture to understand how horrible trafficking is but the story didn’t get bogged down in the ugliness. I was spurred on to finish this book, not because of the romance but because of the intrigue. I wanted to see how the sting would play out and it was very satisfying.
