That’s what Camille Bennett becomes when she crashes into the arms of Deacon Archer.
Camille didn’t have a plan when she attempted to fight off a random attacker, but responding well under pressure has never been her strong suit either. She was merely grateful someone who could handle the heat happened to be nearby.
Deacon doesn’t hesitate to spring into action when a frantic woman begs for his help. No sooner does he get her to safety when Deacon decides that Camille is the perfect woman for him.
If only she felt the same.
When Camille is attacked again, she has no choice but to turn to Deacon for help. He entertains her request, knowing full well he intends to make sure this never happens again.
Just as things start to heat up between them, Deacon's temper begins to flare. But it’s hard to remain composed when it becomes evident that Camille’s attacks weren’t so random after all, and the woman Deacon is falling for could end up as collateral damage.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
The Archer brothers are back and as protective as ever. This time it was Deacon, the youngest, who fell to the love bug. If only the woman who stole his heart from the first run in would get on the same page...
I liked Cami. She was suffering but trying to get back to some semblance of her normal routine. But when she falls victim to an attack and right into the sure arms of Deacon, things really start to turn around for her. I liked the protective man with a temper that ran hot. I especially liked his gentleness and patience with Cami as she opened up her very tight circle to him.
Too bad the threat continued to lurk waiting for the right moment to strike. I had an inkling of who the culprit that put Cami in the cross hairs was, but I still wasn't ready for the showdown. My heart was pounding as those tense moments played out. But I loved seeing Cami's grit come out.
Full of family and friendship, healing and hope, Collateral Damage was a good addition to the series. I am looking forward to seeing what A.K. Evans has in store for Vaughn.
