Shiloh Beckett has a trust fund, a stalker and a secret. He doesn’t trust easily, but his new bodyguard might just break the cycle.

Shiloh Beckett might be the sole heir to Beckett Industries, one of the leading tech companies in the world, but the last thing he wants is to become another suit-and-tie. He’s learned the hard way that money can’t buy happiness, just a better brand of misery.

Gage Tucker lives by the motto Protect and Serve. Raised by a cop who failed his family, Gage chose to serve his country the only way he knew how—with boots on the ground and a gun in his hand. After a mission gone wrong, Gage came home with a broken body but the same drive to protect. Months of rehab later, he joined Eagle Security as a Personal Protection Officer and he’s been a bodyguard ever since. Protecting a trust-fund brat from the paparazzi isn’t what he signed up for.

Soon he learns that there’s more than just the media after Shiloh, and the secrets the boy is hiding will change everything. If he can’t convince Shiloh to trust him, how can he keep him safe?

How many masks can one person wear?

Shiloh wears more than a few – playboy and slut to the press, disappointment to his father, pain in the ass to his bodyguards – and yet there is so much more to him than what you see. Luckily, as the reader, you see the many aspects of him and hear his truth. And it’s horrible, just so you know. There are trigger warnings for this book so take heed.

Gage is Shiloh’s latest bodyguard, and the last thing he wanted to be was a babysitter to a socialite playboy, but when he spends time with Shiloh, he realises just how wrong he was. He is the one who gets Shiloh to lower his guard, who trusts him, who cares for him. There was one part when I was ready to slap him upside the head but he quickly realised his mistake and went back to Shiloh for his side of the story.

I was completely engaged with this story and so wanted Shiloh and Gage to get their HEA. There is one bit about the ending that I can’t figure out, but I won’t say because, you know, spoilers. The thing is, even with that part, I still can’t give this less than 5-stars. I may not understand exactly how something was achieved, but I am oh-so-glad it did!!! And I’m happy it was Shiloh who did it. I feel he definitely was the one who would need the closure that brought.

This is book two in the series but it can be read as a standalone. But, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and find book one now. Thoroughly loved this dark romance. Absolutely and utterly recommended by me.
