When Christian is suddenly pulled out of a tough situation in South America and thrust back into Denver as a bodyguard, he isn't too happy. He has left some of his teammates and best friends behind and he really wants to get back to them. When he realizes that he has been hired as bodyguard for Kat "bad luck" Dekker, he is furious. Then things go crazy.
Kat sees Christian across the lawn at the art auction she is at and she can't believe it is him. A boy when she knew him first, he is all man now and her body still reacts to him. Then he saves her life and kidnaps her to keep her safe and she's not sure she's safe from herself an the feelings she still carries for Christian.
A mix of suspense with a healthy dose of sexy romance, this book was another excellent installment in the stories of the boys from Steele Street. Once they were all car thieves, but now they are part of an elite squad that goes where they are told to and always succeed at their missions.
So when Christian makes Kat's safety his mission and then sets his sights on her, you can be sure he won't fail.
With some flashbacks to get the back story and a lot of heat, this was a fun ride from beginning to end. Also there was more development of other characters to come that have me ready to read the next installment.
