A former Russian mafia soldier is hired to protect a friend’s young daughter, but he knows he’ll do more than keep her safe–he’ll make her his. Forever.
If she were to simply whisper my name, I would be at her feet, begging to touch what I shouldn’t, taste what doesn’t belong to me, run my hands along the sweet innocence she taunts me with.
Penelope Justice is eighteen, old enough to graduate high school but—according to her parents—not old enough to live without 24/7 security. Practice has made her an expert at ditching her bodyguards. One look at Ivan and she never wants to run again.
I’ve been hired to protect her.
I can’t help but think that perhaps someone should have protected her from me.
Ivan steals the breath right out of her lungs, something no boy has ever done. Then again, he’s far from a boy. This man, this man who looks like he could kill someone with the flick of a wrist, is everything. He is her future.
I can’t let her go and I won’t give her up. I’ve done bad things in my life, and I don’t deserve her. But I can’t do the honorable thing.
I’ve never been noble, and I’m not starting now
Review by Ashley C.
Penny and Ivan own my heart*sigh* AR really do write the best men. The perfect mixture of innocence and getting down and dirty. Love at first sight, having a soul mate is definitely what they have going on.
“For there is nothing more powerful than the spell she has me under.”
He is suppose to protect her from bad things they could come her way…
“But as I push away from the bar and walk towards her, I can’t help but think that perhaps someone should have protected her from me.”
He is the “bad boy” she is the innocent 18 year old girly girl. She is the heart of the family the glue that holds all of the love together.
This story will knock your socks off.
