SHE NEEDS A LOVER AND A FIGHTER
Blonde. Beautiful. Talented. Alexa Fairfax is practically Hollywood royalty. But growing up in a family of legendary movie stars also puts her in the spotlight for danger. And after she discovers a plot more deadly than any movie script, Alexa desperately needs a bodyguard. A man like Zack De Luca. A true friend with a good heart, a protective nature—and the hard, chiseled muscles to back it up.
Zack has always been wildly attracted to Alexa. But since he’s training day and night to be an MMA fighter, he’s afraid his gorgeous friend will only distract him from his goal. Indescribably sweet and irresistibly sexy, Alexa needs Zack to pretend to be her boyfriend after her life is threatened. Now this fighter-in-training will have to fight his own intense feelings—to keep their little charade from turning into a major disaster .
I have enjoyed every book in this series but I think this is the most intense one yet. CHAIN REACTION is filled with suspense, easy chemistry and passion between the man characters and got a very strong reaction from me because of who the villains were.
Alexa Fairfax seems to have it all. She’s Hollywood royalty and grew up with the very best that money can buy, but all that money can’t buy her happiness. Getting her own place away from her parents was her first stab at independence and life that does not include being a pawn in her parents’ quest for more of everything. Stumbling into a life and death conspiracy only confirms that getting out was a really good idea, but it also highlights her need for personal security and she knows just the right people to help with that.
Zack De Luca has always had a thing for Alexa but the timing between them was never right. Now she’s in danger, he won’t trust her safety to anyone else, even if it throws a wrench into his own future. Besides, playing boyfriend will give him a taste of what he’s always wanted but never thought he could get.
Zack and Alexa have always had feelings for each other and the circumstances and close proximity made hard for them to avoid the sizzling chemistry between them or their feelings for each other. In spite of all that she had been through and growing up as she had, Alexa was a genuinely sweet, kind and easygoing person. Zack was a perfect fit for the work of a bodyguard, but with Alexa he was whole more – very protective and possessive.
I really enjoyed the friendships among the entire crew and how unreservedly supportive of Alexa the group was. They gave her a sense of belonging that she had always lacked with her own family.
This was some really great suspense from Ms. Wyatt and to be honest, it gave me a pause for a minute. The pursuit for power and money really sank to the lowest level, everything was expendable in the quest for more and nothing was off-limits.
This story combines a sweet friendship and passionate romance with deadly intrigue and suspense and I really can’t wait for more from Ms. Wyatt.
