Guarding Jess by Shannon Curtis

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?"

Guarding Jess 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.
