“Chanel made her feel in control”
With a serial killer targeting socialites on the loose, prominent woman Grace Hall is forced to higher a body guard. Enter John Smith (I get why Ward picked the name but it still kinda annoys me and is my only real criticism) and so begins a tale of forbidden lust, love and revenge. Think Whitney Houston’s film The Bodyguard (1992) just with more sex and a few pretty violent deaths thrown in. Despite my rather cheesy synopsis of the plot, J. R. Ward’s writing avoids any seriously cringey pitfalls and the who did it element had me hooked. A nice, easy read, just what I needed this week!
I’ll definitely be adding more of J. R. Ward to my to read pile/mountain.
