For former Secret Service agent Eve Garrett, the late-night call from wealthy teenager Tiffany Clayborne is a reminder of a case gone bad. Although Eve saved her life during a kidnapping, Tiffany's billionaire father had Eve fired. Still,
the two women bonded, so when Tiffany asks Eve to meet her, she does. But when Eve is almost killed at their meeting, she gets very concerned about Tiffany's safety.

To her disgust, Eve learns that Tiffany's reclusive father has hired
P.I. Mac McClain to find his supposed "runaway" daughter. Mac and Eve were teenage lovers and his callous abandonment left scars. Mac knows he's made a lot of mistakes in his life and seeing Eve again just confirms it. As the two compete to find Tiffany, they begin to suspect that she's in real danger. And death threats shadow Eve.

Book two in Gerard's hot Bodyguards series crackles with sexual tension, dark drama and thrills. The baggage between Eve and Mac is enormous, so overcoming it is suitably challenging. Gerard is quickly proving that she's a player in the romantic suspense genre. (Sep., 352 pp., $6.99)

To the Limit

Submitted by Robin in PA on January 10, 2014 - 9:08pm.

When security specialist Eve Garret arrives in a bad part of town for her meeting with Tiffany Clayborne, she is attacked and knocked out. Upon recovering, she finds that her friend, Tiffany, has been missing for three weeks and decides to find her. But Tiffany's father has hired private investigator Tyler "Mac" McClain to find his wayward daughter and bring her home. Eve and Mac know each other. She seduced and abandoned her 14 years ago. What starts out as a competition to see who can find Tiffany first, turns serious when an attempt is made on Eve's life. Soon the two are joining forces to find Tiffany who may actually be in danger.

This is the second book in Gerard's Bodyguards series. Eve and Mac are striking sparks off of each other from their first meeting. Both characters are smart, playful and likeable. I was happy when Mac apologized to Eve for abandoning her years ago. The suspense portions of the book are interesting. I figured out who was behind Tiffany's disappearance, but it didn't diminish the story. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
