Morgan’s Hunter (The Bodyguards of L.A. County #1)
by Cate Beauman
Morgan Taylor, D.C. socialite and wildlife biologist, leads a charmed life until everything changes with a phone call. Her research team has been found dead—slaughtered—in backcountry Montana.
As the case grows cold, Morgan is determined to unravel the mystery behind her friends’ gruesome deaths. Despite the dangers of a murderer still free, nothing will stand in her way, not even the bodyguard her father hires, L.A.’s top close protection agent, Hunter Phillips.
Sparks fly from the start when no-nonsense Hunter clashes with Morgan’s strong-willed independence. Their endless search for answers proves hopeless—until Hunter discovers the truth.
On the run and at the mercy of a madman, Morgan and Hunter must outsmart a killer to save their own lives.
Hunter Phillips has known his share of pain. Watching his best friend die in battle and failing to bring his team home, he is not ready to let anyone else close. Hunter is now part of a security team that is known worldwide but he is bored of trailing rich brats around to ensure their safety. He dodges more flirtatious advances than bullets. When he meets Morgan he thinks it is going to be like the rest of his assignments. He quickly comes to realize there is more to Morgan than meets the eye.
What makes a great romantic suspense? You need strong characters, tragic circumstances, twists and turns, remote location, intense love/lust, and a villain who is determined to get what he wants. Morgan’s Hunter has this in spades. I will tell you that, literally, the first few chapters made me cry. The author really connects you to the characters and the situations they find themselves. You can feel the predators watching your every move as well as feel the adrenaline running through their systems and they evade capture and death.
Morgan is strong, independent, and completely unconcerned about Hunter’s brash attitude. Sure, she wishes he wasn’t so rude to everyone they come across. But his paranoia has saved her life more than once. She soon sees behind his ‘tude and starts to fall in love with his softer side. Hunter continues to push her away afraid he will fail her like he did Jake but this time he would not be able to recover from it.
In the end this book held me captive
