CLOSE COVER By Lexi Blake
Remy Guidry doesn’t do relationships. He tried the marriage thing once, back in Louisiana, and learned the hard way that all he really needs in life is a cold beer, some good friends, and the occasional hookup. His job as a bodyguard with McKay-Taggart gives him purpose and lovely perks, like access to Sanctum. The last thing he needs in his life is a woman with stars in her eyes and babies in her future.
Lisa Daley’s life is finally going in the right direction. She has finally graduated from college after years of putting herself through school. She’s got a new job at an accounting firm and she’s finished her Sanctum training. Finally on her own and having fun, her life seems pretty perfect. Except she’s lonely and the one man she wants won’t give her a second look.
There is one other little glitch. Apparently, her new firm is really a front for the mob and now they want her dead. Assassins can really ruin a fun girls’ night out. Suddenly strapped to the very same six-foot-five-inch hunk of a bodyguard who makes her heart pound, Lisa can’t decide if this situation is a blessing or a curse.
As the mob closes in, Remy takes his tempting new charge back to the safest place he knows—his home in the bayou. Surrounded by his past, he can’t help wondering if Lisa is his future. To answer that question, he just has to keep her alive.
Fly Girl’s Review:
This novella in the Masters and Mercenaries series is really quite good. Even though it wasn’t a full length novel, it had all the elements of one. There was no cliffhanger and it came with a HEA. It was also quick to read.
Remy and Lisa find themselves on opposite sides of the spectrum based on preconceived notions about one another and it is actually humorous to watch them find out they are more alike than they think. I love how he thinks an expensive purse and shoes means she is wealthy. Little does he realize about women that we take our shoes and handbags way to seriously. She on the other hand doesn’t think she’s his type based on the people he chooses to be his submissive, the tall blonde types.
When they realize they have more in common than they first thought, they make an incredible team and are willing to use each other’s strengths to build a good business relationship. It takes a little time to get the hearts to come around, but in the end they do. It is a cute fun story that will make me see alligators in a whole new light. Who knew they could have personalities. I hope at some point Lexi tells us his brother’s story. I think his siblings stories could be very interesting especially with the meddling mom. Ok, so enough slips of the proverbial tongue. If you want to know more, read this one for yourself. I definitely recommend it. I’m giving it a 5 of 5 propellers.
