Wilde Nights in Paradise
By: Tonya Burrows
Rating: 5/5 Stars
He’ll guard her body all night long.
Former Marine Jude Wilde’s motto has always been “burn bridges and never look back,” so nobody is more surprised when Wilde Security is hired to protect assistant district attorney Libby Pruitt, the woman he loved and left. Although she makes it clear she wants nothing to do with Jude, they’re forced to fake a relationship for her safety. He can’t ignore the heat still simmering between them, and when her stalker’s threats escalate to attempted murder, he’s left with no choice but to whisk her away to a friend’s safe house in Key West, FL.
Cooped up in paradise together, Jude begins to chip away at Libby’s resolve to hate him. But even as she gives in to his proximity and her body’s demands for his, she refuses to fall for his charms again. Maybe a torrid affair in the sun is exactly what she needs to get him out of her system. But when her stalker tracks them down, can they escape the steamy Key West night without anyone getting hurt?
This was my second book by Ms Tonya Burrows, so I went in with high expectations, because I absolutely loved her book "Seal of Honor." I was definitely not disappointed! There was a little less suspense in this novel, but a lot more steam! Overall, I feel that there was a great mix of suspense and romance, and surprisingly, neither of these aspects overtook the novel. I'm so impressed by how well balanced this book was.
I also liked the aspect of HORNET being mentioned, as well as Seth. Even though it's technically not in the same series as "Seal of Honor," the mention was endearing, and it made the book seem a little more integrated into reality for me.
I loved the story line! I especially loved Jude. He was such a sweet and honorable man, hidden behind his own angst. I loved it when he finally let his guard down and allowed himself to love Libby the way they both deserved.
This is a fantastic author, and I can't wait to read more from both of her series! I definitely think Seth needs a nice woman *hint hint*.
If you're into military men, READ THIS BOOK! You won't be disappointed.
