AN UNFORGETTABLE LADY by Jessica Bird
An Unforgettable Lady by Jessica Bird
Reviewed by Nannette
Someone is targeting wealthy women and Grace Hall is on the killer’s list, so she hires bodyguard John Smith to protect her. John is the best at what he does; he’ll do whatever it takes to protect his clients. John is always in control and he keeps everyone at arms length, but when Grace becomes more than a client to him, everything changes. John may be able to protect Grace from a killer, but who will protect her heart when the job is done?
An Unforgettable Lady is an unforgettable love story. Grace and John are the epitome of opposites attracting. John is intense, brooding, and edgy. Grace is elegant, sophisticated, and intelligent. Their romance unfolds slowly and it’s rife with challenges, not the least of which is facing their feelings for each other. John has an especially difficult time accepting what he feels for Grace, and his inner turmoil is tangible. I loved watching the sexual tension build and the anticipation grow between them as much as when they are finally intimate. The teasing, heated moments they share culminate into poignant and passionate ones later on. John has never been as attracted to a woman as he is to Grace. The more he gets to know her, the more he likes her, and that scares the hell out of him. Grace leads a busy and demanding life. She has everything she could ever want materialistically, but she’s lonely and is constantly forced to prove herself to those who don’t appreciate or respect her. Grace wants John emotionally, and sexually. The intense chemistry between them is evident the moment they first lay eyes on each other from across a crowded room. It’s so romantic. As much as they are different, Grace and John are perfect together, too. They share an emotional connection that transcends into a passionate romance. An Unforgettable Lady attests that Jessica Bird (AKA J.R.Ward) was writing unforgettable romance novels long before the revered Brotherhood was born.
