Fall for the missing Ward sister…
Juliette Collins is privileged and isolated from the world by her over-protective father. She thinks she knows the truth about her history until a file in her father’s safe reveals she has sisters she never knew about. A family she’s never met. Betrayed, she realizes there’s a life waiting for her outside the walls of her daddy’s New York City penthouse and Juliet is determined to live it. Against her father’s wishes, she heads to a small beach community to meet her siblings… and finds herself way out of her depth instead.
In the personal protection business, Braden Clark thinks nothing of taking on a job to watch over a city girl in town for the summer. If her father wants to know his daughter is safe, it’s no problem and an easy way of earning a paycheck. Except Braden doesn’t count on falling for the sheltered Juliette. Watching her experience her firsts, getting an apartment, finding a job, meeting up with her lost sisters, soon Braden’s brand of protection becomes a little too personal. He’s mixing business with pleasure and lying to a woman he’s coming to care deeply about.
Sexual attraction burns bright between them and Braden is by her side as she finds herself, her family, and what it means to love… but what happens when she discovers his secret? That he’s been paid to watch over her all along?
This was my first book in the series. After reading this one, I’m definitely reading the other ones as well!
Juliette never left her home after her father had a heart attack. After finding out that her father has kept secrets from her and that her mother is not really dead and she has two sisters, she leaves to go find them. Braden is hired to keep an eye on her, but after meeting her the lines between job and personal life are blurring. His attraction to her is instant and after spending time with her, he realizes that she’s not a sheltered princess.
Juliette is a kind, sweet and loving person. I was so mad with how her father manipulated her all those years. Braden truly has feelings for her but things in his past makes him want to put some distance between them.
This book is really sweet and through the characters’ lives highlights the importance of family! A fast and enjoyable read, that I’m glad I picked up. I can’t wait for Andi’s book next!!
