Lucie Evans and Sawyer McNamara have a
history. A history neither one of them will talk about or
discuss with each other. For years Lucie has done her best
to try and make Sawyer understand that she is not to blame
for past mistakes. Mistakes he holds himself and her
responsible for. For the past nine years Lucie has tried to
redeem herself by taking any and all jobs he has assigned
her; jobs that were the worst of the worst. Not any
longer. When her last assignment tries to manhandle her,
Lucie has had enough and she quits. Ready to start her new
life – without Sawyer – she accepts a new position as the
personal bodyguard to an extremely rich heiress. While
accompanying her new boss to a meeting in South America,
Lucie is kidnapped by rebels who think she is their quarry.
There is only one man who can rescue her, and that man is
Sawyer McNamara, the one man she has always loved and who
has never loved her back.
I engulfed Dying for You
like Norman Love chocolates! Full of suspense, I did nothing
for the time it took me to read this amazing story. Sawyer
McNamara kept things close to his heart; especially his
guilt. In doing this, he came across as hating Lucie Evans
when in actuality, he yearned for her. He felt that he owed
his brother for his secret obsession with Lucie and nothing
would sway him. Lucie Evans loved Sawyer just as much but
her heart was worn on her sleeve more often than not.
Striving to overcome his anger, Lucie took a lot of flack
from Sawyer and more than once I would have had to give him
a piece of my mind. But, if there is anything that kept
Lucie going, it was her knowledge that above all, Sawyer was
loyal. And his loyalty is what was needed to save her.
Believe it or not, Dying for You
is my first Beverly Barton novel. After having finished
this book in record time, I am sitting here wondering where
in the world I have been that I have never read a book by
this author before. Her website states that Dying for
You is the final installment of The Protectors
series which just gives me gumption to go back and find
every single installment! Spine tingling suspense,
amazingly written, and romantic to boot, Dying for You
has it all. I greedily savored every single word.
