Former Delta Force Operator, Mike “Grimm” Reaper, wants nothing to do with war, fighting or danger, other than from falling beams or tripping over building supplies. He sure isn’t eager to go back into protection service. After his stint with the Army and as a member of an elite protection service in Afghanistan, he has no desire to become a bodyguard or anything else that might make him responsible for another person’s life besides his own. He wants nothing more than to pound nails and be left alone.
Dezi Thomas is determinedly freethinking and as happy as Grimm is…well…grim. As the new chef at the Lucky Lady Lodge, she’s excited to try out her recipes on the team of men hired to help with the lodge renovations. When she receives a package from an attorney with her inheritance from her late uncle, she thinks it’s cute that he left her a treasure hunt. When the attorney who sent it is reported dead and someone breaks into Dezi’s room at the lodge, she finds herself in danger she never expected and in need of protection.
After Grimm deflects the first attempt on Dezi’s life, he’s thrust into the unwelcome responsibility of keeping the sweet and tasty Dezi alive. Thrown together, they struggle against a growing attraction while they work through the clues to figure out who is behind the break-in and why Dezi has become a target. [Amazon]
I enjoyed this book. It is not your usual plot. But it is suspenseful and romantic. There are plenty of twists and turns with a few surprises.
Dezi is the new chef at the Lucky Lady Lodge. On her first day, she receives a letter from her deceased uncle. But the letter doesn’t make any sense. Her uncle gave her the list, hoping she would follow the clues. And that was what she was going to do. Then her life is threatened and she needs protection.
Grimm had came to Eagle Rock for the peace and quiet. He’d been hired to do some renovations along with his other teammates. Grimm is a former Delta Force Operator who is tired of fighting an endless war. Who’s through with being on protection detail. Then the chef at the lodge is threatened and he finds himself back on protection detail.
