False Security by Morgan Blaze (thoughts)
"There are two things Wynn Holcolm can't stand -- liars, and her father. Sexy bodyguard Foster Drake is a liar who works for her father. Unfortunately, he may also be the only man who can keep her alive.
When a wealthy Vegas gambler hires the elite VIP Vegas Securities firm to secretly protect his daughter -- who's perfectly safe and living in a small tourist town just south of Sin City -- Foster is less than thrilled to land the assignment. She picks his fake dating profile from the bait they're using to get close to her, and things go from bad to worse when she discovers the deception and refuses to see him again.
But it turns out Wynn's life actually is in danger. Now Foster must win her trust and keep her close by, because the man who killed her mother has unfinished business with her -- and her father is keeping a deadly secret that could destroy them all."
Books like this are why I love the blogging world so much! This is a completely new to me author that caught my attention through email- I read the included excerpt and just knew that I wanted to keep reading this book. I'm happy to say that the rest of the book was just as good as the excerpt which meant a really great reading experience and yet another new author to follow. Love it! As this is a genre that I really just don't read enough of, I'm so glad that I decided to give this book a try. I will definitely be seeking out more books by this author and am really excited that this looks to be the beginning of a new series!
One of the things that really made this book stand out for me were the two main characters Wynn and Foster. I enjoyed both of their characters a lot for different reasons. It was the chemistry between them though that really made me want to keep reading. They fit together perfectly from the very beginning even though neither of them really was willing to admit to it. Instead there were missteps and misunderstandings along the way....all the things that I love in a romance. For some reason I am just a sucker for books where the romance doesn't go smoothly instantly. It just makes it all feel a bit more realistic to me when the romance takes time to develop. There is one heads up that I would like to give to romance readers: this is a book that focuses less on the romance scenes and more on the relationship that is developing. It didn't effect my enjoyment of the book in the slightest but I just thought other readers might like to know. The suspense portion of this book was very well done and the ending sure had me on my toes! I loved how the author managed to take my expectations and completely turn them on their head by the end of the book. I will say no more so I don't spoil anything but suffice it to say that I really loved the way this book ended!
Overall I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I managed to read it in just a few short days because I really didn't want to put it down. It was a quick read but so completely worth it! I've now found a new author to follow and a series that I really can't wait to read more of. I sure do hope that she plans on writing many more books focused on this series! Easily recommended!
Bottom Line: A really great romantic suspense and an author I can't wait to read more of!
Disclosure: I received a copy of this books thanks to the author.
