*** ARC Received for Honest Review ***
In so many ways Billie is way too beautiful and naïve for California, although she is also extremely tough. Having grown up with an abusive father she is lucky when one night her mother sends her way to make sure that Billie is able to escape her small town and make something of herself.
Carter has been battling the demons of his inability to save his girlfriend for years. So much so that he has become a bodyguard so he can do just that; protect people. He lives with regret and anger every day, until fate brings Billie to him.
Although he believes she deserves more than someone like him, Carter can’t resist becoming part of Billie’s life. And once he does, Carter will do everything in his power to protect her. She quickly becomes an unintended, but important part of his life.
Billie has never had anyone care for her or felt as protected as when she is with Carter. Together, these two complete each other and show what a HEA can be. (Review by Terri “Jane”)
