Safe In His Sight by Regan Black (VBB, excerpt, review, and GIVEAWAY) GFT



Safe In His Sight
by Regan Black


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romantic Suspense

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

The stalker shadowing lawyer Julia Cooper's every move is vowing to ruin her life—unless she discloses information about a major criminal case. For discreet help, she turns to the shadowy Escape Club, where investigative brainpower and brawn are for hire. Mitch Galway, a firefighter on leave, becomes Julia's round-the-clock bodyguard. All sculpted biceps, sexy bravado and conflicted past, Mitch works overtime to uncover the identity of the person hunting her. But as they track the creep getting way too close, Julia must share more of herself with the intriguing man protecting her…which puts them both high on a lunatic's hit list.

EXCERPT

The chime sounded for a text message and Julia Cooper swiped her screen to check it. The number wasn’t familiar, though the area code was local. Her assumption about a wrong number evaporated instantly.

Hello, Julia. Are you having vinaigrette or ranch on today’s salad?

More than a little uncomfortable, Julia returned her fork to the bowl, glancing around for the person messing with her. None of her fellow associates at the firm cared how she dressed a salad enough to find out even for the sake of a prank. They all thought she was odd for leaving the building most days to eat outside. The true benefit of taking her lunch break in the park was the daily boost of sunshine, another rare commodity for a new hire at Marburg.

Ignoring the juvenile stunt, she resumed her lunch and headline search.

You look better in blue. And I prefer the skirt.

This text message arrived with a picture of her in yesterday’s charcoal skirt and white sweater.

A rush of nerves skated over her skin. Who had been watching her and how had she missed it? She forced herself to chew and swallow the peppery greens that had turned to tasteless mush in her mouth. Quickly she packed the remainder of her salad and prepared to head back to the office.

Don’t go. I’d like us to be friends.

4.25 out of 5 stars

Safe In His Sight by Regan Black is part of the ‘EscapeClub Heroes' series from Harlequin Romantic Suspense. Lawyer Julia Cooper is being threatened and stalked, which prompts her to seek the aid of the special services provide by those at the Escape Club. Firefighter Mitch Galway is moonlighting while awaiting the resolution of the complaint against him and becomes Julia’s bodyguard and protector. Danger escalates, but their growing connection to each other changes the assignment to something far more personal but they may not live long enough to explore their growing feelings for one another.

This exciting adult contemporary romantic suspense tale has a great combination of danger and sensuality and establishes the groundwork for an intriguing series. There are great elements, including the complex obligations of defending suspected criminals and the challenges of following the proper channels when your foe has no such constraints. I admire the accomplishments that Julia has achieved despite her background but I thought the characters were sometimes a little too obtuse about the threats against them or the dangers looming and I thought the brief forays into another character’s point of view were a little frustrating.  Nonetheless, the tension ramps up throughout the story…both from the threats and violence that escalate and from the heat that flares between the main characters. This was a fun and breath-stealing adventure, and I have no doubt that there will be plenty of other challenges faced by those who comprise the heroes of the Escape Club.

  10. I enjoyed the excerpt - would definitely give me the creeps if I received a text message like that - I also like the idea of the hero of the book being a firefighter instead of a special forces or super cop type character - we usually only see firefighters in fire type books. I like romantic suspense so I'm really looking forward to reading this. Thanks for the giveaway
