I wasn't supposed to join the Marines and serve three tours. I'd been groomed to be another kind of warrior. Since I could walk, I'd been primed to take over the family business. Build the real estate empire bigger, ruthlessly fight my way to the top--make everyone richer.
Instead, I'd enlisted. Wanting to protect my country, not a bank account, I'd turned my back on the family business and given the Marines eight years.
Now I was a bodyguard for the best personal security firm in the business, and life was perfectly uncomplicated...until an innocent redhead smiled at me and destroyed everything.
Now she was about to find out how ruthless a bodyguard could be.

MY NOT SO FAKE BOYFRIEND
ALSO IN KU
So before we dive in here - I think I should tell you that Jenna Benson hasn’t been laid in a year. Yeah…a whole year.
She was dating a guy who turned out to be such a douche bag that she actually moved away from her home town because the story he’d spun for everyone was that she just wasn’t good enough.
But, anyway, that’s not the point of the story.
Jenna’s brother is getting married in a couple of weeks and his best friend in the whole world, Adam, (who’s just got out of the Navy by the way) is coming to crash at her place for a while and they’re going to be driving home for the wedding together.
I suppose I should mention that she knows Adam since she was 9 years old and has been crushing on this guy her entire life (not that she’d admit it of course). She hasn’t seen him in 8 years though.
She gets home and he’s just let himself in (more like broke in to prove how little security the place has) to her apartment.
Think you know where this is going? Nope.
Because Jenna’s stupid brother has invited her ex to the wedding (they used to be friends, go figure?), and there’s no way in hell she’s going to turn up dateless.
There’s family, drama, laughs, tension and a WHOLE lot of steam in this sizzlingly sexy, brand new, heart-melter of a romance!
