He likes to be in control…
It’s like this: I’m the hottest restauranteur on the west coast. I work hard, play hard, and love my family. I’m also the guy on the receiving end of some unwelcome threats and fixation. Then Pascale Nichols walks back into my life, and I forget about everything but her. They say lightening never strikes twice, but she’s the one that got away. She’s also, I soon discover, the one my family *secretly* hired to protect me. Am I mad? Hell, yes. Am I game to play along? You bet.
She’s in over her head…
Everyone knows and loves Ethan Auprince. With his sexy-as-sin dimples and crazy likeability, he’s always the center of attention. I’ve been tasked with protecting celebrities, bigwigs, and high-ranking officials, but when I come face-to-face with the man I spent one incredible summer with, I’m in trouble. A careless mistake on my last assignment cost me, and now Ethan is looking at me like he wants to devour me, not cooperate with my subtle instructions while I work under the guise of his restaurant manager.
My reputation is at risk. His safety is on the line. But worse, were falling in love again.
Ethan is hotter than a three-alarm fire in the Mojave Desert in the middle of July. In case you were wondering.
This is the first book I’ve read from Robin Bielman and I know it won’t be my last. I was completely sucked into Ethan and Pascale’s story. This is the second book in the series, however, it can be read as a standalone.
Ethan and Pascale spent a summer together 10 years ago, that summer they fell in love. Until, Pascale left without a word. Now, they are back in each other’s lives, but Pascale was hired by Ethan’s family to keep him safe.
I loved Ethan and Pascale’s relationship. Despite having ten years pass there is no denying the connection they share. That bond from ten years ago is strong and only growing between the two of them. When Pascale’s life takes a major turn, I loved that Ethan doesn’t shy away. He is super sweet and loving and majorly steps up.
The characters in this book were super relatable and easy to love. I couldn’t get enough of the Auprince family, especially Gran. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and I’m definitely going to go back and read the first one!
