This story revolves around Eve Garrett, the sister in the E.D.E.N. Securities Company owned by her family.

Another good romantic suspense story. This story brings together 2 people whose 1 night together at the end of high school left one with emotional scars. Their protection assignment brings them back together and forces them to face all their past mistakes. The romance builds along with the suspense while they work to find a missing teenager. Very good read.

If you like romantic suspense that involve ex special forces you'll like this series of books.

Ms. Gerard's second installment of her "Bodyguard series" is a real page turner with wonderful chemistry between our two main characters, Mac and Eve. Readers will be drawn into the story in order to see if these two strong but hurt people will find the happy ending they deserve.

Eve is a former Secret Service agent and when one of her former targets calls for help, she is there only to find out that it was a trick. What wasn't funny though is the fact that she is hurt bad with a threat ringing in her ears that "she's (Eve) dead." Eve isn't scared off and she goes on the road looking for Tiffany a teenager that needs her help. She ends up running into her only regret. Ex-cop, now P.I. Tyler "Mac" McClain. This high school bad boy left breaking a promise, and her heart. She is older but not wiser when it comes to this man. One look and she is back in the past, fighting an attraction that she doesn't want to exist. Will she be able to work with this man in order to find Tiffany and be able to walk away with her heart intact or will Mac claim her heart once again?

This was another strong romantic suspense from a new voice in the genre that has established herself as an excellent storyteller. Her character development is well done, and the situation that she puts these two people in is explosive. I loved the push/pull that Mac and Eve had going it made their romance all the more sensual and likeable! I look forward to the next in this series. If the past two books are any indication the following stories will only get better!

I was hoping this would be good, but it pretty much sucked. I couldn't care about the two main characters who spend a lot of time lusting after each other and chasing after a missing heiress. Even though the main characters keep thinking about how mind-blowing the sex is, the actual sex scenes are pretty sketchy and non-mind-blowing. Oddly, the heiress and her young rescuer are much better drawn characters and I found their scenes much more affecting and interesting. I would have preferred a story about them.

Overall, too much telling, not enough showing. The denoument of the plot was utterly contrived and cartoonish, including the hackneyed bad-guy cliche of "I'm about to kill you, but why don't I spent ten precious minutes explaining why you're about to die" and conviently wrapping up every mystery in the plot, giving the good guys time to come in with guns blazing. Lame.

When security specialist Eve Garret arrives in a bad part of town for her meeting with Tiffany Clayborne, she is attacked and knocked out. Upon recovering, she finds that her friend, Tiffany, has been missing for three weeks and decides to find her. But Tiffany's father has hired private investigator Tyler "Mac" McClain to find his wayward daughter and bring her home. Eve and Mac know each other. He seduced and abandoned her 14 years ago. What starts out as a competition to see who can find Tiffany first, turns serious when an attempt is made on Eve's life. Soon the two are joining forces to find Tiffany who may actually be in danger.

This is the second book in Gerard's Bodyguards series. Eve and Mac are striking sparks off of each other from their first meeting. Both characters are smart, playful and likeable. I was happy when Mac apologized to Eve for abandoning her years ago. The suspense portions of the book are interesting. I figured out who was behind Tiffany's disappearance, but it didn't diminish the story. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Apparently part of the Bodyguard series, which I haven't read, this is a better than average romantic suspense about a ex-secret service female agent who is now in the personal security business, who attempts to solve the "kidnapping" of a billionaire's daughter. She teams up with an ex-lover to add steam to the mix. Although I guessed the end, some decent twists in the story.
