Attending a co-worker’s Halloween party dressed as a sexy fairy was the worst decision Shelby Maxwell made all week. That is until she lets her temper get the best of her in front of Dallas’s finest and ends up in the back of a police cruiser. Too bad the gorgeous jerk responsible for her bad behavior didn’t have the sense to avoid the police, himself.
When someone shoots up the party, the gorgeous jerk, Nick Kang, sprouts fur, explodes out of the police cruiser, and saves the day. Nick’s jerk streak continues as he leaves Shelby to explain what happened.
After her name is released to the press, a penitent Nick arrives to protect Shelby from the killer’s mafia associates. Close quarter guarding leads to close quarter groping and a little more intimacy than Shelby is prepared for. But it may be time to put her past behind her and accept far more than the safety Nick offers.
I so enjoyed this read it had me turning pages to see what Shelby would say next. She doesn’t hold back. What kind of girl is Shelby well let me just say when she goes to Halloween party where she dressed as a fairy, and not in the Tinker Bell fairy kind of way, when she runs in to the biggest jerk ever Nick and we see her personality shine. What’s a girl to do when being treated like this she lets loose and finds herself in the back of a police cruiser with the Jerk. Thinking her biggest issue is going to jail only things go terribly wrong and she finds herself in a strange and unbelievable predicament. Just when she thought no biggie I will never see him again she is pulled out on a double date with her bestie only to find she is face to face with the Halloween party Jerk. Now that she finds herself in the center of danger Nick takes it upon himself to protect her. Nick has found his one but Shelby has no idea what that entails only that she is up for a little fun but when Nick has to bring in back up she finds her life may have to take a change of course. Is she ready for that? Can she be what Nick needs?
I loved seeing Nick and Shelby’s personalities show when they are with one another. Shelby had me chuckling and turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. Not only did I enjoy Shelby and Nick but I also found myself wanting to know more about the side characters also. I enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read more of this series.
