Living undercover and on the edge, Dylan Jones has seen damn few things to give him hope - until he sees her, Johanna Lane. But when the beautiful lawyer lands in the middle of his investigation, she also lands at the top of a powerful man's hit list. Out of luck and out of time, Dylan only has one chance to save her, and he only has one plan - kidnap the beauty.

Frightened senseless, Johanna is shocked when she recognizes her captor, the bad boy bodyguard who had once worked for her powerful boss. She had been dangerously attracted to him, and now she's in his clutches and at his mercy. But with the night heating up and the hitmen closing in, passion will have to take a back seat to survival...or will it? With these two, the only safe bet is on scorching desire and endless love!

My Review:
I chose to read this book as it had the most votes from my Kindle Shelf post. I did end up liking this book. It’s not a very long book and in the beginning the pace was consistent. There was a lot of set up and not too much happening. I was worried about when the action was going to happen. No worries, there is plenty of action.

Johanna and Dylan are the main characters. Dylan kidnaps Johanna and she knows he is familiar. It’s great once she figures out where she knows him from. Realizing that she knows him previously, this common bond has its ups and downs on the story and their relationship.

My favorite part of the book is when Johanna finds out exactly why Dylan kidnapped her and she realizes the situation they are in. My least favorite part of the book is the set up in the beginning. Get through the first ½ nearly ¾ of the book and then hold on for the last ¼ of the book. It is worth the wait.
