Guarding Midnight by Kacey Hammell
Being the hired muscle just got a whole lot harder... No one knows sacrifice better than former Army Sergeant Gavin Bennett. He's witnessed firsthand the emotional, physical, and mental toll of being caught in the crossfire. Being a bouncer-slash-bodyguard may not be Gavin's dream job, but he's willing to do just about anything to help out family. When Gavin reports for his first day of work, he quickly discovers a woman who threatens to crack his legendary cool. Shree Walker is on the run from a dark past she tried to shut away. Battered and broken, happily ever after doesn't exist for her. Ready to start fresh with a new life in a new city, she is happy dancing at the Vixen Club. She'd be even happier without the presence of the prickly new bouncer who won't let anyone or anything get past his carefully guarded defenses. He's a distraction she doesn't need. And a temptation she can't resist. When Shree is kidnapped by the criminal mastermind hell-bent on taking the club at any cost, Gavin has to make a decision. Hold tight and continue to keep Shree at arm's length. Or break down his walls and take a chance on something more powerful than them both: Love

MY REVIEW - 3 stars
This book got great reviews and I seem to be going against the grain here ...
The book is good ... it's not a full length book but it is a complete story!
I bought this for several reasons ... I love finding and supporting CANADIAN romance authors
and the synopsis was exciting, thrilling, sexy!
honestly, I was hoping for more from this story ... it was entertaining but I was a little let down! not sure I can explain that without spoilers so lets leave it at that.
I wasn't enamored by the characters ... the sexual relationship or the storyline ..
maybe if it had of been a full length book the characters and story would have been more complex and thrilling...even the sex fell flat for me!
I know this sounds like a negative review but its not ...this author has great potential and I'd read more from her in the future ... I was just hoping for more
this books sells for $15.98 Canadian for paperback ... I bought paperback, I don't think I got my money's worth on this one .. should have bought the ebook!
