My Highly Caffeinated Thought: The story grabs you from page one, throws you around, and spits you out at the end. It is the perfect mix of sexy, suspense, and action.
It is no secret that I haven't been reading a lot of traditional romance novels lately. I don't know why, but they just don't pull me in like they use to. What I have been reading a lot of suspense and a few that have had romantic elements. So...when Elizabeth mentioned that she was sending out ARCs for her new romantic suspense series, I was intrigued. Boy am I glad that I did.
DEFENSELESS effortlessly combines the action of a thriller and the sexiness of a romance without loosing steam or becoming trite. I loved the snarky, witty banter of the characters as well as the emotion each brings to the story. I couldn't have asked for a better pairing than Georgia and Parker.
This is the first book by Dyer that I have read and let me tell you all...I am ready for more!
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher and TLC Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
How far will she go to protect the sexiest guy in tech?
When ex-marine Georgia Bennett left the military for high-end private security, it was supposed to soften her snarky attitude. Instead, her short fuse just earned her a punishment of an assignment: protect smart-ass tech genius and Department of Defense contractor Parker Livingston. It should have been easy—only no one warned Georgia that Parker was one seriously drop-dead-gorgeous geek.
The last thing Parker needs is a bodyguard, especially not one with killer curves and a sassy mouth who tempts him to do something incredibly stupid. He’s too busy investigating whoever is turning his technology against him and threatening his team of covert operatives. But when an assassin sends Georgia and Parker running for their lives, it might just be the explosive sexual chemistry and the trust that’s building between them that saves their necks. Because the only thing more dangerous than the combination of Parker’s intellect and Georgia’s aim is their steadfast desire to protect each other, no matter the cost.
About the Author: Elizabeth Dyer likes her heroines smart and snarky, and her heroes strong and sexy. An attorney and recent coffee devotee, Elizabeth spends the majority of her time tucked into a corner table at Starbucks or pinned beneath her (overly affectionate) bullmastiff. When she isn’t working or wrestling the dog, you can usually find Elizabeth writing the types of sexy, suspenseful books she most loves to read. A born-and-bred Texan, Elizabeth resides in Dallas, where she indulges in Netflix marathons, Instagramming her dog, and brunch. Definitely brunch. Adorably awkward, Elizabeth hates the phone as much as she loves all the social-media things and hearing from her readers. Follow her on Twitter (@lizdyerwrites) or Instagram (@elizabethdyerwrites).
