He’ll guard her body all night long.
Former Marine Jude Wilde’s motto has always been “burn bridges and never look back,” so nobody is more surprised when Wilde Security is hired to protect assistant district attorney Libby Pruitt, the woman he loved and left. Although she makes it clear she wants nothing to do with Jude, they’re forced to fake a relationship for her safety. He can’t ignore the heat still simmering between them, and when her stalker’s threats escalate to attempted murder, he’s left with no choice but to whisk her away to a friend’s safe house in Key West, FL.
Cooped up in paradise together, Jude begins to chip away at Libby’s resolve to hate him. But even as she gives in to his proximity and her body’s demands for his, she refuses to fall for his charms again. Maybe a torrid affair in the sun is exactly what she needs to get him out of her system. But when her stalker tracks them down, can they escape the steamy Key West night without anyone getting hurt?
Libby Pruitt is in trouble. As an assistant district attorney she's used to conflict, but now she's getting death threats. On the bright side, her father has hired her a full time bodyguard. Someone to watch her back until everything is sorted out. Unfortunately, it turns out to be the last person Libby wanted to see. Jude Wilde loved her, left her, and shattered her heart into pieces. Then a close call sends them into hiding, and forces them to face their past. What do you do with an attraction that never really faded?
Let me be the first to say that I loved both of these characters so very much! Libby is a sassy, self-assured and all around amazing woman. She has a fierce personality that really shines off the page, especially when she's aggravated. Which, in all honesty, is a lot when Jude is around. Still, it's hard not to love Jude. Under his sarcastic exterior is a hunky, kind and honestly sweet guy. Jude may come off like the alpha male, but he melts around Libby. They are two sides of the same gorgeous coin.
I couldn't help but fall in love as these two took a second shot at the relationship that never was. This book was a mixture of pure fun and total sizzle! The chemistry between these two is perfection, and it's no surprise that they can't keep their hands off one another. I'll totally admit I wouldn't keep my hands off Jude either. Yeah, I said it. If you're worried that it's all sex though, rest assured there is a ton of romance too. There is such perfect balance in Tonya Burrows' book. I sighed happily as I turned the last page.
Mixing mystery, adventure and romance, Wilde Nights in Paradise is an amazing read. I couldn't get enough and, quite honestly, can't wait for more. If you're a fan of romance novels with a lot of heart, this is your perfect read! Once you meet Libby and Jude you won't be turning back.
