With Parker he is feeling love for the first time and his protective side comes out when his woman is in danger. He has no idea who wants Parker but knows that he will protect his woman from anything. Can he prove to Parker that his love is real and genuine?
Oh my god Anne Bruce rocked in this book with Parker and Dean. I loved that Parker didn’t easily fall for Dean and his sweet charms. The comedy between them was great and definitely he has met his match with Parker. There is a wonderful passion between them but as well a little action in trying to get rid of Parker. Anne did great in this book and I can’t wait for more from this talented author.
