Sloane Robertson has it all—an awesome job, a handsome boyfriend, and the perfect apartment…

Well, maybe everything isn’t perfect.

Her boss is acting strange, and constantly covering for him is taking its toll. Her handsome boyfriend also happens to be a cheating scumbag. At least she has a great apartment.

However, after witnessing her boss’s murder, Sloane is forced to take refuge with the best man in her cousin’s wedding. The sexy ex-cop currently works at a security firm, and since her boyfriend can’t be bothered to protect her, Maxwell Fear steps in.

Max has been on protection detail a time or two, so he knows he has what it takes to keep Sloane safe…

Max knows all too well what can happen to a witness of a violent crime. Protecting Sloane is just another job. That mind-numbing kiss at her front door after dinner at her cousin’s house was a fluke. He will keep it professional and do his job.

But what’s business without at least a little pleasure?

After watching Sloane suffer through her boyfriend’s constant indiscretions, Max is certain she deserves better. Can he manage to keep Sloane safe long enough to convince her to ditch her boyfriend and make her realize that he’s the…

…best man for the job?

***Stephenee, #NerdGirlSteph Review***
This was my first book by author Melinda Valentine, but it won’t be my last. She has a unique writing style that flowed smoothly and kept the readers attention, while at the same time there were a few things that stuck out. Sloane wasn’t the sharpest character in the story….or she just didn’t come across as it in the book. She did some amazingly stupid things! Things that made the reader cringe with disbelief and these things, while minor, did make the reader not enjoy the story 100%.

The author did an amazing job with the locations in the story, I felt like I was in the clubs, or spending time with friends. I could completely picture the mess left behind in Sloane’s apartment when it was ransacked. The plot was fast moving – and if it didn’t have those minor flaws it would have been perfect. I am looking forward to seeing how Max and Sloane’s story turns out now that all of the obstacles in their paths have been removed. I hope to see more of them in future books. The author did end the story with a complete finish, so there is no cliffhanger for the reader.

Overall this was a good read and I will be reading more by this author in the future! I like the idea behind the stories and the men…#SWOON. Grab this book and be prepared for a wild ride!
