About the Book:

He'll guard her body all night long.
Former Marine Jude Wilde's motto has always been "burn bridges and never look back," so nobody is more surprised when Wilde Security is hired to protect assistant district attorney Libby Pruitt, the woman he loved and left. Although she makes it clear she wants nothing to do with Jude, they're forced to fake a relationship for her safety. He can't ignore the heat still simmering between them, and when her stalker's threats escalate to attempted murder, he's left with no choice but to whisk her away to a friend's safe house in Key West, FL.
Cooped up in paradise together, Jude begins to chip away at Libby's resolve to hate him. But even as she gives in to his proximity and her body's demands for his, she refuses to fall for his charms again. Maybe a torrid affair in the sun is exactly what she needs to get him out of her system. But when her stalker tracks them down, can they escape the steamy Key West night without anyone getting hurt?

My Review:

Wow!  I listened to this on Audible in my car and almost forgot to make the turn onto my street. Heading south, I felt like driving on down to Key West while listening to the rest of the book! Tonya Burrows created such a suspenseful novel with steamy romance and likeable characters!

Living in the Florida Keys made this book especially likeable for me because I was able to connect with all the mentions of iguana's and chickens and Keys-type music. And I thought the narrator, Eric G. Dove, was outstanding!  For me, the narrator can make or break an audio book, no matter how good that book may be.

If you like adult romance, I highly recommend Wilde Nights in Paradise as a vacation read. I'm off now to get the next audible book in this series, which happens to be free right now (just like Book 1) if you have signed up for Audible Escape.

My Rating:
