Book Description: Navy SEAL Craig Simmons has pledged his life to serve and protect, so when this newest member of the Saint Squad observes a stunning young woman on the beach being shadowed by an armed man, he leaps into action. It doesn’t take long to realize his mistake, but it also puts him in a position to meet a very well-known actress, Sienna Blake. For Sienna, the timing couldn’t be more perfect—she’s preparing for a role as a CIA agent, and who better to help her prepare than a Navy SEAL? Craig and Sienna develop a lighthearted friendship, though both are aware of their growing attraction. Neither realizes, however, that a treacherous enemy is setting in motion a terrifying plan to destroy Sienna . . . A series of near-fatal accidents on set are too close for comfort, and Sienna has been lucky to escape with her life—so far. Despite the rising danger behind the scenes, the show must go on. When the Saint Squad is enlisted by the FBI to safeguard Sienna on the ill-fated film set, Craig is driven to protect the woman he is quickly growing to love. As the list of suspects and motives grows, Craig and the Saint Squad will do whatever it takes to track down the perpetrator—before things turn deadly.
My thoughts: I have not read many of Traci Hunter Abramson's books. I have missed out. The few that I have read have been excellent.
This is the second Saint Squad book for me. I really need to get the others! I also realized that some of the characters in this book were introduced in Obsession, yes, I ordered a copy of it yesterday. This book can stand alone but I want to know more!
Craig Simmons is new to the Saint Squad Navy SEAL team. One of his first assignments is to guard actress Sienna Blake. The two are obviously attracted to each other from the moment they meet. His first objective is to keep her from harm, the romance is just a really nice side benefit! (At least from my reading perspective.)
There is action, suspense, and romance. The book is well written and the characters have depth. I liked taking the time to get to know them and their personalities. The pace is excellent. I don't think I found a dull moment.
This book is clean with some non-descriptive violence and kissing. The book also contains LDS Relgious references.
