He’s the security expert her overprotective father hired.
She’s the headstrong former prosecutor tempting him to break all his rules.
Together they have chemistry hotter than the Florida sun.
It was the worst day of Ava Barton's life. She'd been fired from the US Attorney's office in Miami and learned there might be a contract on her life. The police and the FBI can't protect her from "might," so she begrudgingly takes refuge behind the walls of her parents' oceanfront estate in Palm Beach.
Jackson King protects the rich and famous while they play in the Florida sunshine. When the powerful Barton family needs a bodyguard for their daughter, he steps up to take the job. But the platonic working relationship Jackson expects goes off the rails. And, against his better judgment, he wants Ava as more than a client.
When Ava's life is at risk, Jackson's need to claim her as his own threatens to boil over. Can he ignore his desires until the authorities catch the person behind the dangerous attacks? Or will her family send him packing?
This book has a sun-kissed ex-military bodyguard with an adorable dog and a workaholic heroine with an unpredictable temper. Action. Danger. Humor. Steam. And a storybook-worthy happily ever after.
Palm Beach Bodyguard can be enjoyed as a standalone but it is book three of the Protecting Love series.
3 Heart Review by Ashley
The beach? Danger? Bodyguard? Yes, please! I knew after reading the blurb that Palm Beach Bodyguard would be my first read from Michelle Donn. And let me tell you this book had me from the start.
I liked Ava a lot. She was smart and strong, brave and bold. I liked that she was her own woman with her own goals and didn't rely on the success of her parents to get what she wanted. She worked hard and earned every single thing. But when a case gone wrong leaves her in danger, it was Jackson who stepped in. Well forced his way in.
I liked the broody guy and his pup. I liked that even though he didn't have his life all figured out, he knew when enough was enough and it was time to walk away. Except when it came to Ava. He knew he should keep things professional. He was there to keep her safe, but he couldn't get her out of his head. And the more time they spent together, the harder it was for him to turn off his heart.
It was a race against time and bullets to get to figure out who was out for Ava. I will say that I was a hair disappointed that things were resolved so quickly. I love when the danger and mystery lingers in a book. That being said, Ava and Jackson still had a lot to figure out about how to move forward when their lives were pulling them in different directions. But that ending....call me ready to head back to Palm Beach to see what's in store for Harrison!
