Exposing the Heiress
This Marine will protect her at all costs...
When wealthy heiress Alyssa Brooks finds out her stepfather has been paying her fiancé to marry her, she's humiliated and betrayed. She quickly breaks the engagement, only to be blackmailed by her now ex-fiancé, who threatens both Alyssa and the son she gave up for adoption. With nowhere to go, she turns to the one man she can trust.
Former Marine sniper Hunter Reece's lethal skills could save Alyssa's life. But his little sister's best friend has turned into a woman, who is an irresistible mix of secrets and sexiness. And while Hunter can trust himself to protect her, he can't trust himself to keep his attraction hidden...or even pretend to be the man that Alyssa remembers.
Because the only way to keep the lovely heiress safe is to become the one thing he knows she could never love...a killer.
Alyssa immediately stuck out to me as a character. She had experienced great loss and pain and after that she had pretty much shut down. She lived for everyone else. She had the weight of the world on her shoulders; only living to please other people.
Then something happens and she realized her whole life is based on a lies and now her life is in severe danger. So she does the only thing she can think of, which is seeking protection from an old marine friend.
Hunt is dedicated to protecting Alyssa, but he is convinced he cannot function as a normal human being after years spent being a sniper. They were childhood friends, so after all these years’ feelings begin to bubble to the surface.
I thought Alyssa and Hunt were both dynamic characters that grew and overcame so many obstacles throughout the story. It was an endearing, heart wrenching, and beautiful tale of deception, growth, and overwhelming loves. The plot was strong and intriguing. I finished, ‘Exposing the Heiress’ in one night, I just couldn’t put it down. I had to find out what happened.
Another great read from Jennifer that pulls at the heart strings.
