Title: Under Pressure
He can protect anything except his heart
Leese Phelps’s road hasn’t been an easy one, but it’s brought him to the perfect job — working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who’s threatening her.
What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who’d believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese’s ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honour. He’s the last person she expects to trust — and the first who’s ever made her feel safe. And he’s the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough...

Under Pressure is entertaining. Leese and Catalina are very likable and their attraction is hot. There is also plenty of intrigue to keep the reader fully engaged. From the opening scene, Catalina is running for her life. Even knowing that Cat has only shared part of the story of how she came to be hunted, Under Armor’s owner, Sahara, insists Leese and Cat stay in the building where they will be protected. Cloistered in the penthouse above Under Armor, Leese and Cat have a lot of time to really get to know each other. Their attraction is sizzling and they get to use their time alone to great advantage. Even as Leese and the entire Under Armor agency prove they’ll do whatever it takes to protect Cat, she can’t bring herself to tell them the whole truth about who’s after her. She knows how much danger anyone who knows the truth will be in and can’t bring that on Leese and his co-workers. The man after Cat can’t afford to let her get away so before long Cat’s life is in grave danger again. After an ambush in which Leese is shot, Cat finally tells her new friends the name of the very powerful man who’s impeccable reputation revolves around ensuring Cat never talks about what she’s overheard. Though there’s no doubt the good guys will win, the intense fight to the end will keep the reader firmly on the edge of their seat. The supporting cast are all well written and add depth to the book. I look forward to seeing more of them in subsequent books.
Hot sex, love, hate, pleasure, pain. This book has it all.
