Book Review: Defenseless

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.

Wow!  This is my first book by Ms. Dyer but it will be far from my last.  She has a gift for creating both believable characters and realistic scenarios.  All to often I find that the 'love' is rushed but in this case, I could easily see it happening.  Very nicely done.

The plot was nicely paced with the sense of danger and tension throughout.  The dialogue was on point with both witty and snarky finding their places.  And the villain, well those reasons were understandable while being unacceptable.  

If you enjoy romantic suspense, I would recommend picking up DEFENSELESS.  It's the first book in a series where I can hardly wait for the next installment.  There is definitely sex but it doesn't get explicit and of course, there is violence.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
