Ella was a woman Axel wouldn’t mind shadowing day and night—especially night.
Ella Brooks is strong-willed, independent, and stubborn, and when she hears something she’s not supposed to about her shady boyfriend, her safety is at risk. Much to her dismay, her cousin sends FBI Agent Axel Carlson to keep an eye on her. Ella’s determined to resist the infuriatingly sexy bodyguard—she can take care of herself!—but she soon discovers that beneath the six-pack abs and amazing biceps lies an equally amazing heart. But will a mysterious threat keep them from finding their happily ever after?
Book Review ~ ‘Following Her’ by Melody Anne ~ 4 Stars!
Sweet and sexy, ‘Following Her’ is a gorgeous addition to the ‘Unexpected Heroes’ series, telling the story of the controlling FBI agent Axel and the stubborn, independent young lawyer Ella who is under his protection whilst she is the witness in her exes prosecution trial.
This was a lovely little story which you can easily read in an evening. It has all the elements that make a good solid romance, and I loved getting into both Axel and Ella’s minds as they begin to let down their defences and learn that sometimes it’s OK to work as part of a team and not just by yourself.
I loved the prosecution trial storyline, and was on tenterhooks each time Ella found herself being threatened. The way that her closest girlfriends rallied around her and held her together in her lowest points was so great to read. As much as I loved the closeness that Ella and Axel grew to have, I loved how real Ella’s life was outside Axel, and how to her, her friends were just as important to her.
4 stars only because I really wish this story could have been a longer one, or spread out into a novel size. I would have loved to have felt Ella grow more and more threatened by her ex as time went on, and to see a slower burn of her relationship with Axel. Nevertheless, a solid read which I thoroughly enjoyed.
