He has what it takes to protect her from everyone . . . except himself.

Bar owner Kinsley Knight knows exactly what she wants: Rhett West. How could she resist over six feet of hard, trained physical perfection? Never mind that she’s been in love with the guy since high school, or that she’s the “kid sister” of his best friend. Never mind that one unforgettably intense and heated night they shared-and the unexpected consequences. Because Kinsley’s determined to have Rhett . . . and she’ll do anything to prove they’re meant to be.

But Rhett can’t afford to get distracted by the mind-blowingly hot night he spent with Kinsley, or the insatiable hunger he still feels for her. She’s off-limits. Especially now that Rhett’s been investigating the members of a vicious biker gang who have invaded his town, and they’re intent on putting Kinsley out of business-permanently. Suddenly, all of Rhett’s protective instincts have taken over. Because no one threatens Kinsley on his watch. Not now. Not ever. And Rhett’s ruthless enough to protect Kinsley no matter the cost. Even if it means risking his heart . . .

Rhett and Kinsley have known each other forever. Kinsley has always liked her brother’s best friend. The feeling is definitely not one sided which is always great in this trope. They shared a brief encounter at her brother’s wedding. It was fun and exciting but Rhett pushes her away.

Rhett has a lot of triggers from his military time. He is a scarred man and no longer the teenager in love with his best friend’s sister. He has pain in him that makes him a cold and hard. The author tells the readers that he is this big standoffish guy but when it comes to Kinsley he is such a softie. I liked him a lot but a part of me wanted to delve deeper into that hurt.

Kinsley opens a bar in town but is in over head with the local gang. They don’t want her running the bar in town. Rhett is no pushover and immediately his Alpha side kicks in for the woman he cares about. There is nothing like a threat to push a couple together.

The sexiness of this story is off the charts. From the beginning where they had this uneasiness to them to the end where they are in love there is no denying the chemistry of these two.

Of course, there is drama, action and suspense as Rhett has to deal with the gang. As the two get closer, Rhett also has to deal with his friendship with her brother. There is such a fine line to play within. Kinsley doesn’t care as she wanted him her entire life. She handles the relationship in such a mature fashion.

This is a quick and easy read. I read it in one swoop from cover to cover and enjoyed it a lot.  There are so many great characters popping in and out of the story. I can’t wait to go back to the start of the series because I definitely want to read more.
