André by Sybil Bartel
Publication date: October 16th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
The Marines trained me to set my sights and wait for the shot. For eight years, I guarded my brothers and defended my country. Now I protect my clients. My personal security firm is the best in the business because I leave nothing to chance… until a dark-haired, hazel-eyed spitfire crosses my path.
She and her sexy-as-hell striptease were supposed to be a one-night distraction. But too late I noticed the branding on her back and my blood ran cold. This woman wasn’t a distraction—she was a death sentence.
Knowing who she was left me no choice. I took her on as my client. But running from her past wasn’t an option.
The Marines didn’t train me to retreat. They taught me to engage.
One shot. One kill.
OK. Lets be honest shall we? Romance novels aren’t true to life. We wouldn’t read them if they were. No – what we want to read is about the guy who falls hard for the girl – who wants to take care of her. And if, like this book, there is some off the charts chemistry with some sexy times thrown in, who am I to complain?
If you don’t want that from a book, then this one is not for you. However, if you want to escape into the pages of a hot as hell contemporary romance, with a character that I have been wanting to read more of for a while, then you may be onto something here.
I am not always a fan of instalove to this depth, because it often feels forced. With Ms Bartel’s books, I’ve found it to be something which was consistent with the storyline, and so it never really felt jarring for me.
This is just a sexy, action packed read.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.
Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…
Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.
She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
