Witness to Passion (Guarding Her Body #1) by Naima Simone

Book Blurb:

Under his protection and in his bed…

For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Unfairly fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family… Yeah, birthdays suck.

Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister’s reckless—and gorgeous—best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her…even if she objects.

The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers—and clothes—are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love…if they survive long enough to see it.

My Review:

Witness to Passion is a great take on forbidden love!  Sloane has tried hard to keep Fallon at arms length because she's his sister's best friend...

But when Sloane finds out Fallon is in grave danger, he'll do what ever it takes to protect her.  Even if it means spending a lot of time in close quarters with just her.  He can control himself, right?  Being close to Fallon soon proves too much for his resolve, and even as he strives to keep her safe, the chemistry between them is impossible to ignore.  He wants more than Fallon can ever give though...Sloane wants a family and forever.  Fallon doesn't believe in love or forever.  As the danger and tension escalates, so does Fallon and Sloane's passion.  

Entertaining, suspenseful, and passionate, Witness to Passion has a couple of very strong willed main characters and a fair amount of angst.  Fallon comes across as quite young and naive at times.  If you like this kind of character who is also angsty, goal driven, and a little bit oblivious, you will like Fallon.  Sloane is protective, honorable, and tires hard to keep the boundaries up between him and Fallon.  He comes across as a really good man who faces his own personal conflicts.

Witness to Passion is a great introduction to this series (Guarding Her Body) and the men of GDG Security Solutions, and I enjoyed all of the secondary characters who make up this group.

I'd recommend Witness to Passion to romantic suspense readers who like it hot!

4/5 stars
