Tilly Maxwell is a freelance photographer in New York City who happens to take the right photo at the wrong time. While on a shoot, she captures in the background of one of her pictures a man who’s just committed a murder. A man whose perfect crime has now been foiled because of chance. Because of one ill-timed click of the camera, a photographer must be silenced, and Tilly’s now on the run for her life.

John Osby, Oz, an ex Army Ranger who is now one of CEP’s best, is shocked to see Tilly when she calls on the agency needing help. Talk about a blast from the past. They attended high school together and he remembers her as the quiet, adorably awkward and somewhat nerdy photographer he'd had a crush on, but because their lives were so different, he didn’t dare cross the line with her, except for one drunken kiss. But now they're older, she’s blossomed into a real beauty and he intends on crossing any line he can to protect her… and have her as his own.

A woman who adamantly guards her heart encounters the one man who may be able to break down her barriers. When the past collides with the present, boundaries will be pushed and unbreakable hearts will be tested to the limit.

WOW! There seems to be a lot going on in this book. In a very good way. It’s got an amazing build up where the characters build and you try to figure out how it’s all going to intertwine. It’s sooooo good!

Tilly is really just a now beautiful dork at heart. She was a nerdy dork during high school and although she came into her own and is now a beautiful woman….she still feels like that same nerdy dork. Tilly owns her own photography business, which was a given since she’s always had a camera in front of her face. She has one favorite high school memory….John kissing her at a party. She had to leave that school right after that and never saw him again. Until now.

Oz (John) is installing some security at a home where he vaguely recognizes the name but can’t place it. He’s dealing with a guy that’s friends with another guy…etc. Word of mouth is great advertising. Then he see’s her. His Tilly. He’s thought of her many many times over the past ten years and she’s seriously still very beautiful. He waits no more than about 10 minutes before asking her out.

The problem is that Tilly doesn’t do relationships and she knows that John will definately be a relationship. Will she go out with him? Can she finally lower the walls around her heart just a little to see if something can become more for her?

The reason for the security is that she’s had someone break into her home. Her brother, Jeff, is overseeing the installation wanting the best. Someone is desperate to make sure her pictures are destroyed. To what ends will they make this happen? Can she be protected fully? Is anything a guarantee?

I loved this book! It’s a mystery and romance all rolled into one. With HOT guys too boot!! Tilly’s innocence and John’s Alpha Male Sweet Protectiveness…..well they are perfect for each other.

I didn’t realize that there was a book 1, so I would consider this a standalone. I can normally tell within the first 10%! It’s a pet peeve of mine to not read books in order. I can tell you that I'll be reading that book too!!! This one is so good!! Thank you Harper Bentley for such a wonderful series!!
