Sadie Jennings was used to being protected. As the niece of Sean Taggart, and the receptionist at McKay-Taggart Group, she was constantly surrounded by Alpha men more than capable, and willing, to lay down their life for her. But when she learns about a friend in trouble, she doesn’t hesitate to leave town without a word to her uncle to help. After several harrowing weeks, her friend is now safe, but the repercussions of her rash act linger on.
Chase Jackson, no stranger to dangerous situations as a captain in the US Army, has volunteered himself as Sadie’s bodyguard. He fell head over heels for the beautiful woman the first time he laid eyes on her. With a Delta Force team at his back, he reassures the Taggart’s that Sadie will be safe. But when her past catches up with her, Chase has to use everything he’s learned over his career to keep his promise…and to keep Sadie alive long enough to officially make her his.
Sadie has been under the protection of Chase Jackson since one of the kidnappers Jonathan, got away during the rescue of her, her friend Milena and Milena’s son. The book opens with her arguing with her Uncle Sean (Taggart), who reminds her she wouldn’t like the protection he and Ian would provide her.
She has a problem though, she feels this attraction to Chase but she really thinks he dislikes her.
Chase on the other hand, is trying very hard to keep his hands to himself. Recognizing that this is not the time to start a romance but knowing beyond the shadow of a doubt that this woman is his.
This is a favorite scene when Sadie accuses Chase of being her babysitter. Forgive the language, it is necessary.
“Let me make something perfectly clear, Sparky the last thing I think about when I’m around you is babysitting. You’re what, twenty-five? Only two years younger than me?”
“Yeah,” she answered reluctantly, hating that she’d thrown the same words at Chase that she had her uncle. “But you act a lot older,” she told him defensively when he didn’t say anything.
Chase grinned at her. Fuck, she was cute.
“And don’t stand there smirking at me,” she huffed, crossing her arms over her chest.
The smile left Chase’s face. “I’ve seen a lot,” he told her quietly. “Too much. So much that there’s no way I’m going to leave you here to fend for yourself when that asshole is out there, dying to get his hands on you. That is in no way baby-fucking-sitting. I can protect you Sparky. Make no mistake.”
“Why are you calling me that?” she asked, instead of commenting on his over-the-top statement.
Chase grinned. “Red Hair, Explosive personality. Fire. It fits you. I like it.”

One of the things Chase does is move them into Fletch’s garage apartment, I swear everyone stays there at some point, it’s become a very safe and handy refuge.
It’s great to see Ghost and Rayne, Fletch, Emily and Annie. I love Annie and her introduction to Sadie is priceless. Smart and precocious she brightens every book she’s in.
However, all is not fun and games what with Jonathan still out there and a first encounter doesn’t end well.
Chase gets quite the surprise at the barbeque get together with the folks mentioned above. It had me in tears, you’ll love it!
As usual, our heroine doesn’t get off easily, I love the strong determined women Susan creates.
