Description from book:

All Janey Mackay wants is to put her painful past behind her. It’s time for her to be her own woman, but her big brother, Natches, is still overprotective. and he isn’t the only one. . .

Since he saw her taking a dip in her bikini, Major Alex Jansen has had to quell the fire Janey ignites in him. Even touching her would mean death by the Mackay men. Until now, the girl of his dreams – and red-hot fantasies- has lived in a vacuum of affection, shying away from the danger she thinks men represent. Alex sets out to prove her wrong, with lingering – sometimes tortuously slow – caresses.

Everyone thinks Janey’s free now with her abusers six feet under. But when someone starts leaving Janey spine-chilling notes, Alex won’t rest until she’s completely safe. And completely his – body and soul. . .

My Thoughts:

I thought this book was a good addition to the Nauti Boys’ series. This is the first story to move beyond the initial three Mackay cousins – Rowdy, Dawg and Natches. Of course, Alex Jansen has been around. He is, after all, Dawg’s brother in law. It was fun to see Natches as the protective older brother who didn’t particularly want to deal with his sister’s budding relationship with Alex.

In terms of the suspense plot, I will say that in this instance I did not guess the identity of the bad guy. Overall, I don’t generally buy these books for the suspense plot – I’m much more interested in the characters and the romantic plots. In this case, Janey was targeted by the bad guy because that person saw her as a corrupting influence on the town and on Alex – the hometown hero. I guess that the bad guy isn’t entirely sane, so the reasoning behind the person’s actions don’t have to make much sense. Fotunately, I loved Janey and Alex together.
