an ancient Earth relic, a Faberge egg, and she s determined to prove her astro archeologist credentials to her disapproving father heyshe s hitting two birds with one stone However, she s been forced to accept the protection of a bodyguard, Damon Malik, who s not at all happy with his assignment either He d been enjoying the quiet and peaceful museum security gig, not expecting to have to play sidekick to a stubborn woman with Daddy issues However, as Lexa and Damon journey to find the relic, there s no denying the attraction that springs up between them As they close in on their target, they discover that they re not the only ones interested in recovering their prize, and must learn to depend on each other to survive the threat and make it home together.While there s nothing really wrong with this story, I just couldn t get engaged by the characters Lexa and Damon are cardboard cutouts She s the fiesty but caring heroine who doesn t listen to the trained security professional who s guarding her He s the badass with a heart who finds her irresistable despite her complete inability to listen or comply with his instructions It s just so completely predictable and so conventional that it s like driving down an endlessly flat interstate highwayvast monotony, except occasional glimpses of something interesting in the distance Sojust two stars RATING 1.5 Hearts

read I was pleasantly surprised with this one The beginning was a bit slow and I almost quit but I kept on and the book took on a good vibe There was plenty of action, sexual and adventure, with strong characters and a surprise ending that I didn t see coming There was a little cheesy stuff toward the end but not enough to detract Not a bad read.
