About the book: It isn't Sage Parker's fault that she mistakes former Navy SEAL Joel Watts as the stalker who had been sending her disturbing letters--he shows up every time she turns around. Too bad her father doesn’t tell her he sent Joel to protect her. When the stalker tracks Sage from LA to her new job in Colorado, she's glad to have Joel on her side. She didn’t plan to falling in love with him though—now if he would see her as more than just a client.
Joel takes his job as head of resort security seriously, but Sage is his number one priority, and the one woman he can’t get out of his mind. He isn't sure if he believes in her precognition, or some of her other hokey beliefs, but he soon finds he can't live without her. He just has to catch the stalker before he or Sage end up dead.
My review: I read the first of these DiCarlo Brides books quite a while ago. I remember liking it, but really not much more. After having read this one, I'm going to have to re-read it, because I really enjoyed this one!
I like the whole idea of the sisters, most of which didn't know each other before their dad died, having to work together to not only run a resort, but to learn to live with each other and their circumstances. I really love that each of the sisters gets her own book and story and it's really kind of fun the way their dad has kind of hand picked who each girl will marry almost from beyond the grave.
I really loved the characters in this one. I like Sage. I felt a bit scared for her from the very beginning, because of the stalker situation. Obviously, Joel can't and won't be with her ever second of every day and it would only be a matter of time before the stalker is there. I liked that she was willing to keep trying, despite the panic attacks and anxiety she had and felt over this situation.
I liked Joel too. It's really fun that you get to see things through his eyes, that way when he messes up the things he said to Sage, you know what he really meant and it makes the situations a bit comical. I liked the way Joel goes out of his way all of the time to protect Sage and to try to find out who the stalker was.
I had no idea who the stalker was by the end of the book. I never would have guessed! The author did a great job of hiding the identity.
Bottom line, this is a great book in a great series and I can't wait to read more!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
