Publisher's Summary

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 going in the right direction. She has 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.

Suspense and some comedy

What can I say? I loved Remy, and having seem his, um, popular ways in other books, you knew he was fighting too hard. Lisa was so sweet, and so saucy, that it was easy to see she was the baby of the family. She fought so hard against everyone solving all her problems, and her family so wanted to look after her, they missed the woman she was. Lots of misunderstandings here, but no real drama. You always knew it was going to work out, right from the get-go, so seeing how these two caused their own trouble wasn’t a surprise

Now, about that bad guy, who really wasn’t, where can I get more of him? #moreItalianhitmanplease

A long predictable story with great characters

For fans of the series, a large number of McKay Taggert people put in an appearance in this story as the heroine is family to several Sanctum members and the hero is one of the regulars. This book did have it’s share of repetitive self analysis and character self doubt. Interesting backdrops though. The main story was completely predictable and sadly there were numerous relationship spoilers unless you read all the ebooks in order because not all the books have been done one audible yet. This is very annoying and while I have purchased some rather than books to read rather than wait for the audibles, I find I prefer listening to these - Ian is especially entertaining while sitting in traffic. Also I really wish there were dual or duet performances in narration- though Ryan West usually does a pretty good job. Looking forward to the audio versions stories for some of the couples mentioned and hope it won’t be too long.

Typical Masters and Mercenaries adventure!

I may have said typical but, they are all pretty awesome, so typical is a good thing. This is how the story goes...Hero avoids the Heroine because he doesn’t think he is good enough for her. Hero is assigned to be Heroine’s bodyguard and they get to know each other and fall into bed and then into love. Hero does and says some stupid things to Heroine and her broken heart can’t seem to heal. Tragedy hits and Heroine almost loses Hero. Due to this, she forgives him and they live HEA. Now, mixed up in this is some hot BDSM sex, a bitchy ex that causes issues, a mystery is solve and the bad guy is caught, Big Tag says a lot of inappropriate things and family and friends work together to make the world a better place. What’s not to love? Spend the credit, you won’t regret it.

I’m in love with the town of Papillon!

A sexy Cajun bodyguard with a soul of a poet is the perfect hero for this spin off story from Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. This story has just the right mix of fun and suspense and Lisa is a girl after my own heart. I’d be ready for a throw down too after a couple of glasses of homemade strawberry wine 🍷!

I always love listening to Ryan West narrate a book. His performance allows me to get lost in the story every time.
