Story Overview:
Protect the geek, that’s the job she’s been hired for, but little did this shewolf expect to fall for a man of science.

As a werewolf who hires out as a bodyguard, Lexie is paid well to perform dangerous jobs. When she takes on the protection of a science geek for a vampire clan, she doesn’t expect her temporary girlfriend status to come with lots of pleasure. But a geeky human who pushes all her right buttons—and plays her body oh so right—isn’t reason enough for her to break the rules and fall in love.

Everything changes after an incident in the lab, but before she can decide if it’s safe to give him her heart, she has to help him survive.

My Review:
This was simply a fun afternoon's read. I took the afternoon off for Mother's day and took my Kindle to the coffee shop. This book was perfect for my afternoon. It only took a couple of hours to read. It wasn't too heavy or too deep- just pure entertainment. But there definitely was enough story and character development, that it didn't seem lacking...at all!

Anthony is a scientist on the verge of discovering the cure to a vampire's aversion to sunlight. As such, he is in a very dangerous position from other creatures and bounty hunters hired to keep that from happening. Lexie has been hired to protect him during a weekend convention where he's the speaker. Unfortunately, he is clueless..about a lot of things:
1. that he works for a vampire
2. that mythical creatures exist
3. the danger he is in and how serious it is
4. that his new girlfriend is being paid to be with him
5. that his new girlfriend is also a werewolf

Like I said, this was just a fun little read. Anthony is pure geek scientist, but a buff one because he uses workout time to work through problems in his head from the lab. He is also 6'4". Lexie has abandoned the pack-lifestyle because she has too much alpha in her to submit to any male that can't dominate her and none have been successful yet. Strangely though, she feels differently about that when things start to heat up with Anthony.

I think that part of the reason why this story worked so well for me is that neither Lexie nor Anthony has ever connected with anyone else sexually the way that they do with each other. On paper, their relationship should never work, but their chemistry together is so amazing- it just works. Even with all the secrets/facts that are being withheld from Anthony, he's smart enough to accept that they have a good thing. 

I liked this one!
