Going Down Hard by Tawny Weber
Publisher: Harlequin Blaze
Release: May 2009
Source: I won an autographed copy of this book from the author
Sierra Donovan is flying high on her company’s rising success. Her bonus? Another sexy one -night stand with cowboy Reece Carter also known as the best sex she’s ever had.
But when sick blackmail photos start to show up, fiercely self reliant Sierra suddenly finds herself needing a twenty four hour bodyguard. Who better than cowboy turned security specialist Reece Carter?
Reece is tall, dark and dangerous…and he’s getting in Sierra’s take charge way. But, oh god, can he make every single nerve ending on her body sizzle.
Sierra soon realizes that coming home to great sex each night has its benefits. That is, as long as her bodyguard can keep her alive to enjoy it….
Going Down Hard is a book that I won from the author. Although I have read many of Ms. Weber’s books, the author chat that I attended where I won this book, was the first time I had the opportunity to listen to her talk about her work and interact with us readers. She’s a delight to listen to!
Sierra is a fiercely independent woman. She takes her pleasures where she chooses, and is none too happy to have to accept help from a man whom she has lost sleep over. If it wasn’t so essential for her company to succeed, she would be trying to find another way around accepting help from Reece. Reece has been looking for a way to get close to the one woman he can’t forget, and is happy to guard Sierra’s body!
This is a hot and spicy read. It has suspense, it has action, and it has the main characters repeatedly dropping their laundry and getting lucky. This book is another example of Ms. Weber’s outstanding writing and also another example of this series from Harlequin. These little red books that make up the Blaze series from Harlequin appear in my mailbox once a month and fit nicely in my purse. They are great little reads that are over and done with in a couple of hours. Perfect for waiting for kid activities to be done, or a ride on the subway to work.
