She has a body that needs guarding. He has the muscle to do it … but he’s moved on and refuses to look back.
A Woman Fighting to Stay on Top
After a decade as a supermodel, a younger version of me is scooping up my contracts. To regain my status in the industry, my agency devises a strategy—which so happens to require a bodyguard. And I know the perfect guy for the job: Wills Sumner, the man who saw beneath my veneer. Who currently is evading my texts like a Parisian taxi driver in the rain.
A Man Surrendering Hope
I need to start over. Watching my partners die on the job cemented my belief that I’m toxic. So, with the money from that fateful gig, I buy my sister’s gym. At least I can honor her in death—considering I failed to step up when she was alive. Now, if only the French beauty Emilie Dubois would lose my number.
Emilie is fixated on having me at her side. I’m resigned to doing one final turn and escaping with my heart intact.
But neither of us expected to be stripped bare … In the end, she may be the only one who can Take Hold of Me.
