Review: Witness to Passion (Guarding Her Body #1) by Naima Simone

Witness to Passion

Synopsis

Under his protection and in his bed…

For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Unfairly fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family… Yeah, birthdays suck.

Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister’s reckless—and gorgeous—best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her…even if she objects.

The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers—and clothes—are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love…if they survive long enough to see it.

5- Stars Review

I loved this interesting and thrilling book. It is full of romance and intrigue. Fallon witnessed a murder, on her birthday of all days, now her life is in danger because she is the only person who can put a dangerous hit-man in jail. Police is not able to provide adequate protection and it seems that someone has been leaking her information to the killers. Now Shane is taking her protection in his own hands because she is family.

Shane is security specialist but that is not the reason he is protecting Fallon so fiercely. She is his sister's best friend and like a sister to him, or at least that's what he keeps reminding himself. Attraction between the two is off-the-charts plus Fallon has no instincts of self-preservation so she is more than willing to give in to their undeniable chemistry.

I loved both main characters. Their chemistry was smoldering hot and made reading it all the more fun. Story is very well-written and full of twists and turns. A little mystery added into the mix made it an amazing read.
