Another good quick read in James Patterson’s Bookshots series. This introduces us to Abbie Whitmore who is a competent professional woman acting as a bodyguard to a politician who has been receiving death threats after successfully combating a human trafficking group.
As this is a romance as well as a thriller (probably more of the former than the latter) there soon grows a mutual admiration between protector and protectee despite Abbie’s wishes to remain entirely professional. This admiration is consummated twice in a couple of steamy scenes in the book.
Despite her best intentions, the bad guys make a move on the politician in the end but naturally she saves the day (and his life).
After the threat is over and her assignment ends, the inevitable question is whether the two of them will still be together or was their romance a short-lived thing? This question is answered right at the end of the book, but I won’t spoil it for anyone who wants to read it for themselves
