There’s no resisting a desire like this…
MMA fighter Miles Dartman’s casual arrangement with personal shopper Maxi Nevar would be many men’s fantasy. She seeks him out, they have mindblowing sex, she leaves. Rinse, repeat. Yet lately, Miles wants more. And when Maxi requests his services via the Body Armor security agency, he’s ready to finally break through her defenses—and protect her day and night.
Receiving a large inheritance has brought chaos and uncertainty into Maxi’s life. Her ex has resurfaced, along with lots of former “friends,” and someone is making mysterious threats. Then there’s Miles, who doesn’t ask for anything…except her trust. Pleasure is easy. Now Maxi has to give her heart as well as her body…or risk losing a man who could be everything she needs.
I have not read the first two books in this series. Yet, this book can be read as a stand alone novel. I like the idea of the Body Armor agency employing "sexy" men as bodyguards. As owner, Sahara says "Body Armor is the place to go for sexier protection".
Maxi is my type of woman...strong. I love a good, strong, female lead. There can never be enough in my opinion. It was especially welcome in this male driven story. Although, I am not complaining as Miles is easy on the eyes. I like that he was the one that wanted more from Maxi and his arrangement. It showed that he was caring and not just in it for the looks but also for the long haul.
Yet, as much as the two of them were hot together, I did find the story a bit lacking in intensity for the first half of the story. It seemed to be just about Maxi and Miles back story versus the reason that Maxi hired Miles. The second half was better. Still a good read.
