Review of Guarding Jess by Shannon Curtis
Published: May 14, 2012
5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "Jessica Pennington's work as an
etiquette coach requires her to be polite and proper at all times, especially
now that she has a book coming out. The only thing that rattles her reserve is
the increasingly violent emails and texts from her persistent stalker. With the
book launch in jeopardy, she reluctantly hires a bodyguard.
Noah Samuels hates stuck-up, prim people like
Jessica. He's more the blunt, straightforward type. But to advance up the ranks
at McCormack Security, he has to take the high-profile assignment. After a near
miss on his first day on the job, Noah realizes that the stalker isn't just
hype cooked up to sell books-the threat is real.
As the stalker escalates from letters to letter
bombs, Noah sees a vulnerable side of Jessica that rouses more than just his
protective instincts. But can she let down her guard long enough to trust Noah
before it's too late?"
by Shannon Curtis is a story about wrong impressions and having the conviction
and strength to protect those you love.
First off, the sexy Noah is a very amazingly hot draw to this book, as a
woman I'm just saying I could read about him all day and not get bored. What
really brings this story together though is how Jess and Noah work together and
how their impressions of one another are quickly dissolved into false
advertising. I love how Jess is so
cautious of everyone she meets because of her history, it makes her seem
standoffish, but in reality just makes her a stronger character with a presence.
The thing I love about Noah is how intelligent he is with everything else in
life, but as soon as he gets near Jess he becomes a hot mess. These two characters have undeniable
chemistry which will spark readers hearts and leave it impossible for them to
put this story down. The story itself is
such a roller coaster of the unknown, I believe readers will be thrown once or
twice and fairly surprised by the ending.
I give Guarding Jess by
Shannon Curtis 5 smirks because it is a must read, must own book which will
leave readers wanting more.
