“No bad. I like JR Ward's writing and this one was pretty good. Not as good as the BDB books, but not bad.”Kim B wrote this review Saturday, January 7, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Wow, I was really surprised that I liked this book so much even though it wasn't anything like a Black Dagger Brotherhood book. Well, John definitely had a lot of resemblance to the brothers in my opinion, but this was just a romance/suspense novel and I was definitely intrigued by the story the whole time. I actually finished it in just a few days. This makes me want to read more of her contemporary romance novels, and I hope that she continues to write more of them.”Juliana C wrote this review Thursday, December 15, 2011.

“This was a really lovely story. JR Ward is an excellent writer. However, you can really tell this was written back in the earlier days. Everything is very tone down compared to her newer works. However, its still a lovely story, with lots of action and romance, and I will continue to read the rest of her earlier books!”Chantelle L wrote this review Monday, September 12, 2011.

“John Smith is a personal security specialist. His background includes special military, assassin, and intelligence. Now, he is a ghost. He has not used his real name in so long that no one alive can recall it. He has no address, no social security number, and his earnings are scattered in various numbered accounts throughout the globe. He is the best in his field. He got a few of the men he knew from his time in the military and began the firm called Black Watch, Ltd. John has never failed a client ... which is how he met HER!
Grace Woodward Hall, soon to be the former Countess von Sharone, is in the direct line of fire of a serial killer. The Times ran an article stating the names of the six most prominent women in New York. The article had been found beside the body of the first socialite.
John Smith agrees to be her personal bodyguard. Grace deals with John giving many of her hired personnel (such as a daily maid, a driver, contractors, etc) long vacations and putting his own men in place. She even deals with him moving into her penthouse, even though there is only one usable bathroom (since the contractors were not finished with the guest bath). But she was having a very hard time keeping her attraction to John stamped down. Then there is the stress of her work. Since her father died she has taken over as head of the Hall Foundation. Her father had groomed her for the position since childhood. However, there are a few old timers on the board who believe she should stop down and give the President and CEO position to Lou Lamont. Add to all this, stress of her pending divorce, her mother's harping, and more of her friends dying! And since Grace has never backed down from anyone or anything, she refused to cringe at ANY of this, including John's overbearing attitude!
John cannot help but love the feistiness Grace keeps sheathed in social politeness. For the first time ever he finds himself becoming emotionally attached to a client. That could be fatal. Yet he is unable to leave her safety in the hands of anyone else. After all, he IS the best! ”
