Former special forces operator Mick Fury would give his life to keep his best friend’s irresistible sister safe. He took an oath to stay silent about their last mission, but Mick’s will is tested by the white-hot attraction to Jenna he’s tried to ignore for years. Now he must risk everything—even falling in love—to protect her from the truth that could destroy them both.
Mick Fury and Rob Ryan are best friends and work together for Claymore Security. Mick has always had a thing for Rob’s sister, Jenna, but he keeps his hands off because of his best friend. Rob has told his friend that he has quit his job and in two weeks he will be going home for good. He asks Mick to take care of his sister if something ever happened to him and Mick promises that he will. It is almost like Rob knew he was going to die because on their next mission he is killed and will be going home for good.
“Hey.” Rob grabbed Mick’s arm as a large armored vehicle rumbled past, leaving deep grooves in the mud. “Promise me one thing.” He looked way too serious for Mick’s taste. Even more serious than usual. “What’s that?” “If something happens to me, you’ll leave Claymore and take care of Jenna.”
Mick does not know that Rob had evidence that may have gotten him killed and could get still get Jenna killed. Before their last mission Rob had sent Jenna a package, a package that someone wanted really bad.
“And you sure Ryan had more evidence?”…”Yes, sir,” Beavis said. “Rizzo saw him taking pictures.”
Jenna and Mick try to comfort one another but the pain is too deep. Mick decides that he needs to get really drunk to forget the loss of his best friend, so when he needs a pickup from the bar he calls Jenna to come and get him. The next morning on the way to get his car they realize that they are being followed and when they get back to Jenna’s place the entire place has been trashed. Then after Rob’s funeral they find her car torn apart in her driveway and the next thing she knows is that Mick has dropped her to the ground and covered her with his body. Her townhome is consumed in flames. What is going on?
‘Taking a deep breath to steady her nerves, she studied Mick’s handsome profile and worked up the guts to ask him a question she dreaded. “Do you think there’s any possibility that Rob was murdered?”
Will Mick be able to keep Jenna safe? Can the two of them solve the mystery and not end up like Rob? Will Mick and Jenna give in to the attraction they feel for each other? Is this love? Will it turn a bad boy good?
