Leslie Manning made the mistake of falling in love once, and other than her two beautiful sons, she has nothing good to show from the experience. She doesn't need another man in her life now, but being a single mother is anything but easy. When a celebrity wedding brings a hunky security specialist to Barefoot Bay, Leslie is determined to keep him at arm's length. Except the more she gets to know him, the more she wants to pull him closer.
Michael Duncan has built a business and a career by never leaving anything to chance and never missing a single detail that could put his clients in danger. That legendary focus is threatened any time Leslie is nearby. All too quickly, the only thing he wants to focus on is getting to know the young widow and her two rambunctious boys.
Michael relies on his skills to keep his clients safe, but no one's record can be perfect. With all of Michael's attention focused on keeping his celebrity client safe, and persuading Leslie to open her heart, Michael just might miss the one threat that matters the most.

This is a quick, fun read. It's easy and entertaining. There's a lot of story in a few words so the story moves quick, but that makes it simple to stay completely invested with everything that's happening. I liked both the main characters and the way that the story happened around them to keep it all interesting.
Evans does a great job bringing these two together and paces the underlying suspense in such a way that's just creepy enough to keep you guessing and shocked by how it plays out. She packs a whole lot in the pages of this novella. Michael and Leslie were what the other needed and they were just what I needed at a tough time, too. Angela Evans has quickly become a must-read for me.
