Trace Kogan will go to any length to protect those who need protecting. That is the business he is in; the business his father, Casper Kogan, started with Bryce Trexler more than thirty-five years ago. Trace spends day and night eliminating threats to clients, so when the danger hits too close to home, he won’t let anything come between him and the woman who desperately needs his help.
His fear… the physical reaction he has to Marissa may pose a bigger danger than the ghost that they find themselves up against.
Marissa Trexler has spent the last twelve months of her life in hiding, tucked away in one safe house after another for her own protection. The threat to her is real even if the reason is still unknown. Strangely, whoever is after her seems to find her no matter where she goes, leading her family to believe it’s an inside job.
So when the decision is made that Trace will provide personal protection, she can’t say no, even if being close to him adds another level of danger… and this one is to her heart.
This book was gripping from the start for me. Marissa is just how I like my heroines – strong, capable and instantly likeable. She knows how to handle herself but she’s very humanised with her flaws. Trace Kogan is a deliciously written character. He’s the perfect match for Marissa.
What I love about Nicole’s story telling is that it’s never one dimensional. There’s layer upon layer with her tale telling. No one could ever say in all honest that this is just a suspense book or a love story or a mystery. They are all those things and intricately put together.
The pacing of this story is good. There were a couple of times when another character was introduced that made me stop and think ‘why is there another character!?’ and it wasn’t till I got through more of the story that I realised their relevancy and not just thrown in to pad the story out. There were some sections that were a bit longwinded but I couldn’t honestly say they interrupted the flow. I just don’t like to wait to get to the action.
For those readers who came to know Nicole’s work through her erotica elements, she surely hits the sweet spot here too. There’s such a build up. So much teasing, so much tension that it’s just leg clenching worthy.
I am keen to see what else happens in this series. For me, this book is an enjoyable start.
