Nice way to wrap up the bodyguard series. I liked these characters and was glad to see them finally get their happily ever after. As was the case with each of the books in the series there was intrigue along with the romance, sweet moments, funny moments and tense moments. The story moves at a good pace and it was a quick read so perfect for an evening by the fire.
Sex: innuendo, inappropriate propositioning
Violence: yes, not too graphic
