A perfect blend of mystery, thriller and romance.
This book has everything! A badass heroine. A rockstar hero. A mix of crazy family. And a deranged stalker.
What more could you ask for? Right?
But there's more to this book than crazy family stuff, badass heroine and a rockstar hero. Simone Harlow deals with emotions (and a lot of it).
If you want a perfect excuse to shed a tear or two, then this book is your go to.

Luke never days no to a dare and is always up for a challenge, a real sport but he comes back changed , from his last deployment, he was honorably discharged due to injury . He's dark , bloody and gloomy and just wants to be left alone in peace and quiet which one can understand but having said that I'm sure his bad boy side will resurface with the right bait !
Anna has her work "laced"out for her as CEO of La Parisienne , a lingerie shop and as a single mother to Julian , her teenage son , those 2 things are her life and keep her busy so there's no time for romance , oh right ?! She may be busy but she's no cold fish , she has needs and desires that also need filling
Anna and Luke's introduction in "Herbal Heaven" had me in stitches and it's right there where I fell in love !
Yes , Anna and Luke have issues but together they are amazing It did take them a while yo get there but all good things take time right ?
There were other characters that left their mark on my heart :
Moira , Luke's mamma made me laugh but what got my attention though is the gentle way in which she demands respects and gets it! Even her grown ass son who survived army and lived to tell the tale listens when she speaks ! I like you Mamma
Julian has a crazy sense of humour , he's a card More often than not I could identify with him and his mom as a mom of a teenage son myself ! Julian, you're the bomb sugar
A great ending to a great series!
Rockstar Declan Shaw has everything. The talent that has made him a superstar. Golden God looks that ensures he can have any woman he wants. Money that lets him afford anything he wants. And fame that has garnered him a stalker. So he hires the one thing he doesn’t have. A bodyguard. A sexy, no-nonsense bodyguard who isn’t impressed with his talent, his looks, his money, or his fame.
Former Army Officer Jane Peterson is a battle hardened soldier. She is ready for anything. Even playing his fake girlfriend. What she isn’t ready for is Declan Shaw. The man who hides his caring nature behind his seductive jaded façade. For her failure is not an option. She will wrangle the rock star love God by any means necessary.
What neither one of them counted on was the sizzling attraction between them. One that could jeopardize Declan’s life or expose Jane’s long held secrets.
Once upon a time Simone Harlow decided to write a book. She never understood why she had to write a book she just did. She has a great life. A family that loves her. Friends she can mother. And a dog who thinks she’s his reason for living. (No, really, he told her so.) She should be content. But alas she still had to write that book. So she did, and it was the beginning of an excellent adventure.
