Series: A Nora Heat Novella
Author: Shanora Williams
Genre: Erotic/Contemporary Romance
My new client is too damn tempting -- a lingerie supermodel who isn’t afraid to get naughty or naked.
Chanel wants me bad - needs me to touch and caress her - but I can’t get too close.
Her father is my boss, and if he found out about the dirty things I wanted to do to her, my reputation as top bodyguard in Manhattan would be ruined…
But, like Chanel says as I slide her panties down, “He’ll never know.”
The author nailed it right on the head with her Prologue: "...it is written purely for entertainment purposes and for a slight escape, so if you're looking for a story with a super deep plot, it probably won't be here." Caress is a quick, fun, and hot read about a bodyguard who falls in lust (then love) with the supermodel he's in charge of protecting. As they embark on this strictly physical affair, deeper feelings develop and they have to decide whether pursuing more is worth the risk to their careers and hearts. I really enjoyed the book - Kobe sounds like one fine hunk of man and Chanel was young and fun. One of the characters introduced in the story is actually getting his own Nora Heat Novella in December and I look forward to reading that too. While I didn't like this one as much as I did Dirty Little Secret, I still enjoyed it. I give Caress 3.5 out of 5 wine glasses.
After my shower, I made sure to stay put in my room. I knew what Chanel wanted. She was young and naïve, so she didn’t care about how her father felt. When she wanted something, she wanted it. No questions. No debates and if there ever was a debate, she would win it.
Sighing, I laid down in bed, exhausted from the long day. I’d had two cups of scotch swimming in my veins that I was sure was going to lull me to sleep soon.
Before I could shut my eyes, I heard the door open and then click shut. I frowned, picking up my head, looking toward it. I saw her thin silhouette from where I laid.
She had on a silky white nightgown that showed way too much cleavage. Her skin was milky from the moonlight spilling through the curtains. Her hair was damp and curly, most likely from a shower.
She looked so sexy.
Fresh and ready to devour.
Seeing her like that sent all of my morals flying out the door she’d just walked through.
