She doesn’t play it safe…
Sophie Sarantos has a weakness for dangerous men. She doesn’t like safe lovers—she likes men with a wild, rough edge. But Sophie may have attracted a lover who is too dangerous, even for her. Someone is stalking Sophie, slipping into her home, watching her day and night. The stranger seems to know all of Sophie’s darkest secrets, secrets that should never be revealed.
Out of options, Sophie turns to ex-solider Lex Jensen for protection. Lex is part owner of VJS Protection, Inc., and Sophie hires him as her bodyguard. She thinks Lex is one of the “good guys” out there, but she couldn’t be more wrong.
He doesn’t play at all…
Lex has his own secrets. Dark, deadly secrets. And as his feelings for Sophie grow, Lex knows that he is going to have to stop pretending to be a gentleman and, instead, he’ll have to show Sophie who he really is. A man trained to kill. A man too used to evil. A man who will take any risk…as long as he can claim Sophie.
Because there is one thing that Lex wants in this world…one person he desires above all others…Sophie. And no one will hurt her, not on his watch.
In Book 2 of Cynthia Eden’s newest Romantic Suspense trilogy Dark Obsession, we see one of the VJS Security partners, Lex as the hero, and Sophie, the attorney he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about since the previous book, as the heroine.
Sophie Sarantos is an attorney. A good one. She’s also a love ’em and leave ’em type. No attachments, nothing long term. But Lex is playing for keeps.
It’s been about a month since they met back in Watch Me, when Sophie was bashed in the head and left for dead. Sophie needs protection and Lex is absolutely willing to be her bodyguard.
These two are smoking hot, and they don’t try to deny it. I love that Sophie is still loyal to Ethan, her best friend, and I loved that the killer was not obvious at all, but I didn’t feel like it was out of left field, either. I’d love to see Ethan get a story, though. He’s been through a lot, and he never seems to get the girl. He deserves a HEA too!
This series is shaping up to be one of my favorites, and I can’t wait to see what’s next. (hint-we met the heroine in this story, so Dev has his work cut out for him!)
