This is a good 3.5. I'll definitely read the next one. I've liked all of this series. They keep the same bad dude for a few books of the series, which seems a little more realisitc to me. I love to read series but hate when it's a different bad guy each book and I'm thinking to myself, 'there couldn't possibly be this many bad guys and f-ed up things happening in one little town, to one group of people.' lol

I loved this book for a lot of reasons.

i chose 5 star i read the book in less than 4 hr and it was kind you can not put down and i in joyed it
a lot of t he book i think i hve read some of the other and will try to find them the body guard did his
job and he put his life for the people he took care of the lawyer and then put his life up for trouble and fell in love
I love these books and I always seem to choose the right ones to read even if I do read them out of order so to speak , I thought the plot and story line felt like a perfect story that would play out in a real cop show or a law and order feel to it. In all I wish I was lucky enought to catch anyone of the handsome devils in these books.

The love story between Alex & Audrey was good, but I did NOT care at all for the lack of resolution in regards to "The Rich Girl Killer." Had there been resolution to that part of the story, I would've rated this book w/ 3 or 4 stars.

A good book, but I hated the cliffhanger at the end. Argh! Now I have to find the next one by her.
