Protective. Obsessive. And rough around the edges.
James Foster knows the rules: you don’t fall for your best friend’s little sister. Nina is too young, too reckless, and too busy saving the world to be tied down by the commitment he craves.
If he was smart, he’d stop wanting her. But she’s the one thing on earth James just can’t quit.
Fierce. Principled. And impossible to resist.
Political campaigner Nina Chapman is sick of one-time things. She wants forever, and she wants it with her brother’s best friend—but James still sees her as a child to be coddled.
So when a controversial article lands Nina in hot water, she finds herself under his protection and under his roof. It’s a shame James doesn’t want her in his bed, too.
…Or does he?
It’s not a surprise that I love any and everything Talia Hibbert. And that applies to Guarding Temptation. Nina is James’s best friend’s younger sister and they have a steamy encounter that goes wrong. However, when Nina starts getting death threats, she is forced to turn to James for protection. In close quarters, their burning attraction is too much handle and James especially is forced to face his love for Nina. James is the perfect cinnamon roll hero and I positively adore him and his desire to protect and care for Nina while still giving her space to be the strong woman she is! This is a beautiful and steamy story and honestly, my only complaint is that I want more!
