Good book with a nice blend of romance and building suspense. Teddie is a supermodel who has been plagued by a stalker. After an attack that took place at her mother's house, Teddie hired Payne Protection to guard her. The bodyguard assigned to her is Manny.

Manny is one of Cooper's Marine buddies who has come to work with him. He's a big man, a bit rough around the edges, and honorable to the bone. He also avoids relationships, believing that because of his family history he is not a good bet.

I enjoyed the way that Manny ended up with this assignment. Having watched previous bodyguards fall in love with the women they've been assigned to protect, he adamantly refuses to take the job protecting the model. Instead, he insists on taking the one for "Ted," not realizing that they are the same. He was not happy when he arrived at his destination and discovered the truth. What made it even more fun was that Manny had once had a poster of Teddie and a bit of a crush on her. From the moment they met, there was no doubt about the strength of the attraction between them. Both have good reasons to resist. Teddy has been betrayed in the past by people she has gotten close to and feared that it could happen again. For Manny, besides the fact that Teddy is a client, he also sees a huge difference between him as a bodyguard and her as a supermodel. But fate will not be denied. I enjoyed seeing them get to know each other and find that there were some things that they had in common. It was sweet to see how Manny's protectiveness became very personal very quickly. Teddie also became protective of Manny and worried about the stalker going after him. There were a couple of times when Manny got spooked by the strength of his feelings a pulled back, but that didn't last long. However, there was a huge problem at the end when something happened that made Teddie believe that Manny had betrayed her. I was angry at her for believing that when she should have known better. I ached for Manny and how her accusations hurt him and didn't blame him too much for lashing out. Their big moment at the end was sweet and romantic. I enjoyed the reactions of those around them.

The action and suspense started as soon as Manny arrived at Teddie's hideout. The stalker had found her and Manny's arrival thwarted the man's attack. The escalation of the man's actions throughout the book kept me on the edge of my seat as I waited to see what would happen next. I liked the teamwork of the whole crew as they worked together to find out who the stalker was. There were times that I wanted to shake Teddie for her stubborn refusal to believe what Manny tried to tell her. She also made some stupid decisions that put herself and others in danger. The final confrontation was intense as the truth was uncovered and the team tried to get to Teddie in time.

I admit to being a little disappointed in the team's attempts to keep Teddie safe. There were too many times when the stalker actually succeeded in getting his hands on her. I did like how Teddie kept her wits and fought back, buying her the time for help to arrive. I was also a bit angry at Cooper's attitude near the end and his reluctance to believe that Manny was right. It was satisfying to see Manny proved right and the team's support. I liked that Cole had believed in Manny, even if he was skeptical about Teddie. I'm looking forward to reading Cole's story, especially with the hints that have been dropped about his past. ( )
