Review: Exposing the Heiress by Jennifer Apodaca

Exposing the Heiress (Once a Marine, #3)

Synopsis

This Marine will protect her at all costs...

When wealthy heiress Alyssa Brooks finds out her stepfather has been paying her fiancé to marry her, she's humiliated and betrayed. She quickly breaks the engagement, only to be blackmailed by her now ex-fiancé, who threatens both Alyssa and the son she gave up for adoption. With nowhere to go, she turns to the one man she can trust.

Former Marine sniper Hunter Reece's lethal skills could save Alyssa's life. But his little sister's best friend has turned into a woman, who is an irresistible mix of secrets and sexiness. And while Hunter can trust himself to protect her, he can't trust himself to keep his attraction hidden...or even pretend to be the man that Alyssa remembers.

Because the only way to keep the lovely heiress safe is to become the one thing he knows she could never love...a killer.
 

5-Stars Review

I enjoyed reading this romantic mystery. Alyssa is a celebrity, whose life is constantly dissected by media. She has been a different person since her mother died. She gave up a lot, now its time that she gets her life back. She thought her fiance was the person she could build a life with but finds out that he isn't what he seems to be. He has been hiding many things from her and now that she knows he is willing to go to any length to ensure that she goes through with the wedding. Alyssa maybe many things but a coward isn't one of them. Instead of letting her ex-fiance blackmail her she finds herself a bodyguard.

Hunt had known Alyssa when they were kids. They grew up together and his little sister was her best friend. Now that she needs his help he is going to protect her no matter what. What he doesn't count on is having feelings for her. They are both attracted to each other. But before they can have any sort of relationship, there are many things that needs to be sorted out. They have both been scared as life hasn't been easy but they must slay their demons and move forward. In the end it turns out that it might be possible for them to slay each others' demons and built a life together.

Two people who fall in love and complete each other, this is most definitely kind of book I love and recommend to fellow readers.
