He’s not the hero she’s looking for
As part of the elite Centurion Corporation team, military-veteran-turned-mercenary Gabriel Diaz is a natural defender. He’ll do anything to ensure a mission is successful. Anything but get emotionally invested—he learned the hard way that can be deadly. Easy bodyguard jobs in between the more challenging missions are all he’s interested in now.
Maylin Cheng is desperate and running out of time. Her younger sister has gone missing but no one seems to take her concern seriously. Her last hope lies in asking an aloof bodyguard for help. He dismisses her outright, but all that changes when she is almost killed in a not-so-accidental hit-and-run right before his eyes.
As Maylin leans on Gabriel, she begins to rely on him for more than just her safety. But as their attraction grows, so does the danger surrounding them. When the elaborate web they’re trapped in unravels, Gabriel will do anything to protect them. Even if that means putting his heart in the crosshairs.

Gabriel Diaz is a military veteran turned mercenary working for Centurion Corporation running a five man team. Gabe will stop at nothing to make sure missions are successful. He learned the hard way to never get emotionally invested because you might just get shot in the back.
Maylin Cheng is desperate to find her missing sister. Hearing that Centurion Corporation is the best she decides she will ask them to help but when she is let down and told no she will have to find another way. That is until she leaves and someone tries to intentionally run her over right in front of Gabe’s eyes.
Gabriel realizes that the hit and run was intentional and decides to talk to the team about taking the case. What they find out is more than they expected. The job will be extremely dangerous and Gabe will have to face his once partner turned enemy that he strongly holds a grudge against.
This book felt a little slow for me at times. I do realize that after reading the details were important so the reader could fully understand what was going on. This book is full of intense surprises, protection and a heated relationship. The one thing about this job is Gabe is in it with all of his heart which could be very dangerous for both of them.
