Morgan Taylor, D.C. socialite and wildlife biologist, leads a charmed life until everything changes with a phone call. Her research team has been found dead—slaughtered—in backcountry Montana.

As the case grows cold, Morgan is determined to unravel the mystery behind her friends’ gruesome deaths. Despite the dangers of a murderer still free, nothing will stand in her way, not even the bodyguard her father hires, L.A.’s top close protection agent, Hunter Phillips.

Sparks fly from the start when no-nonsense Hunter clashes with Morgan’s strong-willed independence. Their endless search for answers proves hopeless—until Hunter discovers the truth.

On the run and at the mercy of a madman, Morgan and Hunter must outsmart a killer to save their own lives.
  
 
 

Reading this the second time around I’m still as impressed as I was the first time round but now I feel as if I can explain it better.
The plot of this book is superb, and the twists and turns that there are so if that alone I give this book 5 stars.
Morgan Taylor is a biologist and on a trip half of her group is murdered at Yellowstone while she was in Maine, both of them were trying to track a lynx. For a D.C. Socialite she knows her job and does it well. She is stubborn, sassy and loyal to a fault. She also is a bit dim when it comes to life or death situations. The ‘but’ comes in a minute.
Hunter has been back from Afghanistan for two years after he lost his best friend and almost brother Jake since then he has locked his emotions up tight and only lets, Kylee and Sarah in. Jakes widow and daughter.  He works for Cooke Security and takes a job protecting Morgan. I like him and here come the ‘buts’
I didn’t like them together most of the time. He lied by omission and Morgan had a death wish besides he was mean actually they were both mean. There is a fine line between love and hate.  Morgan gets 3 Stars and Hunter gets 3 Stars.
Let’s say about 3.5 Stars total for the book. I really like this author.
