Shannon Powell is a bit sheltered. Whisked away from a life of hardship and poverty at the young age of seventeen by her new acquaintance, turned husband – John continued to shelter Shannon within their life of luxury; almost keeping her child-like and not allowing her to grow up. But when John suddenly dies, Shannon immediately struggles with finding herself. A feat that can be a real trick when you aren’t privy to the dangers that surround you.
Clint Dawson is her chauffeur. Sort of. He was actually hired to protect Shannon as a bodyguard following a botched kidnapping attempt. John refused to tell her the truth of the matter and swore Clint to secrecy when he hired him, so neither can Clint reveal the truth. But John has now been gone for over a year and Shannon’s lack of realization as to how much danger she really could be in as an heiress to a vast fortune could be more hazardous than revealing the truth. He knows he can never have her and her knows he has to get away from her. Falling in love with her was never a part of the plan and resisting her is getting more difficult; especially given the new passes she’s recently taken to making toward him. Even though he can’t have her, knowing she’s way too good for him, he struggles with telling her the truth. Possibly the worst part being that he is the unknown writer of her favorite love letters. What started as blackmail of sorts got a bit out of hand. But if she hates him, maybe it will make it easier to leave her … before they cross the threshold of no return.
This was a super-fast, entertaining read. I polished it off in about 3 hours. While there wasn’t a whole lot of time within the space of the pages to dig deep into these characters, I felt Ms. Soule did a very good job of bringing them to life. I understood where they were coming from and why. I also enjoyed watching their misconceptions of self interfere not only before they realized a mutual love, but also after as they struggled with different insecurities. They not only had to prove to each other that the gamble on love was worth it, but had to prove it to themselves and break past what each thought made them unworthy of such a love.
The book progressed at a steady pace and kept me engaged. The characters were well developed and the secondary characters added the little bit of substance that would have been lacking otherwise. Overall, I enjoyed my time spent with Shannon and Clint. I was a little lost with the kidnapping aspect as it seemed to disappear. Had it been utilized a bit more, I would have welcomed the addition of suspense. Perhaps there wasn’t enough time. Beyond that minor criticism, I would recommend this book. It would be especially nice for the reader who doesn’t have a lot of time to dive into a full-length novel, but is looking to scratch the itch with a quick HEA.
