Someone has it out for debutant Bowie McKay.
Despite being the daughter of one of the wealthiest families in New York, Bowie never suspected that anyone would try to do her harm. But things changed when a series of threatening messages start to show up, one after another.
Terrified for his daughter’s safety, and desperate to find the monster behind the messages, Frank McKay hires former marine and security expert, Porter Davidson.
Porter has lived a rough life, from an abusive childhood to a traumatizing military experience. He’s made mistakes in the past. Mistakes that haunt him. And so he has devoted his life to his work, and has sworn off love.
When he meets the woman he’s supposed to protect, he does not expect the deep feelings that come with the job. Bowie McKay is everything he isn’t. She’s feisty, free-spirited, and fun. While he’s all rigid rules and straight lines.
But Porter’s attraction to her only raises the stakes of his mission. Will he be able to find the person who’s been threatening her life? Or will his past keep him from protecting the woman he’s grown to love?
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This story incorporates topics unlike the other books in this series (The Plan Series). This book is filled with suspense, adventure, love, and heartbreak. The author wrote an exceptional story about a free-spirited woman and a military man who must learn to live. This book has moments of twists and turns that will leave you guessing just who is behind the notes. The story ending will amaze you and leave you wanting the next book, hopefully with these characters.
Porter is seeing a psychiatrist at his sister’s request. He is a former marine and protective of his sister. He also seems to have a lot to do as head of security for Mr. Faulkner, the main character from the first two books.
His little stints are getting him and his partner Taylor noticed by word of mouth for other jobs. One other job is personal protection for a manufacturing executive’s daughter after threats are made. Will he take the job? What about Greenhealth and Mr. Faulkner?
They take the New York job after meeting the free-spirited girl but only because Porter seems to react to her. We do get to experience Bowie’s point of view. Porter has some inner demons he has to overcome, but it isn’t the time to do it when he needs to be a professional. This book definitely has some suspense woven into the story, but I think it is to be expected with the nature of their job. This story does get steamy.
Interestingly this book is running in the same timeline as The Engagement Plan but across the USA. I love the ending of this book, so not an instalove novel, and I love that they are acting like mature, intelligent adults. This book did have its suspenseful, heartbreaking moments, but it was a fantastic story. I look forward to more from this author.
