Isabelle West lost her heart to the one man she trusted more than anyone in the world and she lost it. After years of loneliness, Izzy thought she had met another man who would protect her heart and have a life with, she was so wrong. After years of abuse ended with Izzy was able to get away. Two years later, Izzy has started another life, but her ex still is trying to scare her. Her best friend Greg Cage has brought in his friends who are joining his security firm to help get her ex sorted out, but never in Izzy’s wildest dream did she expect to see the man she lost all of those years ago.
When Axel Reid sees Izzy again he knows he wants one thing, he wants answers. This Izzy is not the same vibrant woman he knew years ago, she is timid and protected by two people who will always put her first. As answers to the past slowly come in Axel and Izzy work through their issues from the past, but with Izzy’s ex still a threat, Axel wants him caught before he can feel that Izzy is safe.
Loved this story, I had not read this one before reading the rest of the series. This was even better than I expected. You feel Izzy’s emotions so vividly and as she becomes more like her old self with Axel, the story flourishes. Exciting beginning to the Corps Security series.
