Natasha has been a bodyguard for a just about a year. It is a wonder that she still wants the job since trouble dogs her every assignment. Her overprotective fiancée, protection specialist Jonce Striker makes her even more determined to succeed.
Striker was a loner before he met Natasha and now he cannot live without her. Her predilection for getting into trouble drives him crazy, and makes him want to wrap her in cotton wool, but she is much too independent for that.
Natasha has been hired to be a bodyguard to the famous rock star Giki. She was referred by a former client, Giki’s aunt. It looks like a routine assignment, following the star on her tour of the South, but she does not take into account the singer’s addictions, crazed fans and a particularly nasty stalker.
This story made me laugh and had me at the edge of my seat in suspense all within a couple of pages. Natasha is a magnet for trouble and though she is competent, circumstances just do not cooperate. I could see why she and Striker have so many conflicts. His secrecy regarding his assignment with the large breasted redhead only adds to her insecurities, since he is constantly undermining her in her current job, first sending Pit and Bigun, unique characters by the way, then assigning her her own bodyguard. He is one sexy character and the love scenes and fights between the two are scorchingly hot. Giki is a combination of the worst traits of any rock star ever to grace the tabloids. I love her addiction to donuts and chocolate. Her entourage is controlling and manipulative and not in a good way, leading to a very dangerous and exciting conclusion. This story is a definite keeper to be reread.
