Description; After a case ended badly for Rebecca Carson, she’s losing her mind sitting around her apartment waiting on her superiors to allow her to return to work. Since she was a teenager, the only thing she’d ever wanted was to join the FBI. Now that dream was in danger.
Gage Daniels has made a pretty good life for himself. A nice house. A career he loves. As a professional football player, he’s used to getting almost everything he’d ever want with just the snap of his fingers. This includes women. A well-timed smile is usually all it takes to attract the opposite sex, especially in Nashville.
When a stalker threatens Gage, the team owner calls an old friend, Rebecca’s ex-partner Travis Hansen, to help protect his star quarterback and find the person responsible. Hansen offers Rebecca the job, and she jumps at the chance. It’s work, and it will get her out of her apartment. How bad can it be?
Posing as Gage’s girlfriend, however, isn’t as easy as it seems. The man is relentless. Rebecca must work to protect Gage while staving off his advances. She’s there to do a job, nothing more. The last thing she wants is to be another notch on a hotshot athlete’s belt.
As the stalker continues to up the ante, Rebecca finds it harder and harder to keep her distance from Nashville’s star quarterback. He isn’t what she expected in one of the city’s most notorious playboys. Now all she has to do is keep him safe until they can find his stalker, and hope she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.

My Rating; 4*s

Would I read anything else by this author? Yes, I will and I have.

Would I recommend this book? Yes

Who would I recommend this book to? Fans of Sherri Hayes, fans of romance, and romantic suspense novels.

Review; This was an enjoyable story for me. I haven't read the first Daniels Brothers book yet, but each of the books can stand alone. So that wasn't a problem.

I quite liked the characters, although Rebecca could be slightly annoying, in the end I still liked her character.

The mystery was also good, I had no idea who the stalker was until I was told.

I honestly can't think of too much to say about this book, but that's not a bad thing, it's just that I read it a few days ago and so am not still entirely buzzing about the story.

This book was enjoyable and I would recommend you read it.

About The Author; Sherri is the author of four novels: Hidden Threat,Slave (Finding Anna Book 1), Need (Finding Anna Book 2), Behind Closed Doors (A Daniels Brothers’ Novel), Red Zone (A Daniels Brothers’ Novel), and a short story, A Christmas Proposal. She lives in central Ohio with her husband and three cats. Her mother fostered her love for books at a young age by reading to her as a child. Stories have been floating around in her head for as long as she can remember; however, she didn’t start writing them down until she turned thirty. It has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create. When she’s not writing, she can usually be found helping her husband in his woodworking shop.

My Favorite Things About Being A Writer

1)    I get to write down the stories in my head. When I was younger; I used to read books, watch movies, or television shows, and when they’d end, I’d continue the story in my mind. I’d always want to know what would happen next.

2)    Creating characters is one of the best things about writing. Before I type anything into my computer, I spend hours getting to know my characters. I flesh out who they are, what type of personality they have. What’s their background? Do they have any hang ups? What are their likes and dislikes?

3)    Over the last two years, I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people. I’ve held several book signings, and last year I was able to go to Lori Foster’s Reader and Author Event. This year, I’m hoping to make it to a few more conferences and continue to connect with my readers.

4)    I love the flexibility I have with writing. As an emotional writer, it’s difficult for me to sit down at my computer to work if I’m not in the right frame of mind. The great thing about writing is that it’s not a nine–to-five job. In fact, since I’m not a morning person, I often times don’t start my workday until just before lunch time. Of course. it also means that sometimes I’m up until midnight working on things.

5)    My absolute favorite thing about being a writer, though, has to be when I get that first book in the mail from my publisher. There is such a feeling of accomplishment each and every time I get to hold my newest book in my hands.
