A child in danger, parents who want their child protected, a company that provided protection come together to make a spellbinding story. Carissa Jones is a bodyguard and along with her partner Frank, she works to keep her client safe. But Marc, Frank’s friend/brother enters the picture, and sparks begin to fly between Marc and Carissa.

A friend of Marc’s enters the picture and causes more questions than answers about why he is actually there. Carissa’s childhood friend Julie keeps coming around, but does not set off red flags. Yet the team knows someone is after Olivia.

Olivia demonstrates all the headstrong tendencies of a 9-year-old who is too smart for her own good. Initially kept in the dark about what is going on and why Carissa is there because of Olivia’s parents, Carissa comes to the point where explaining to Olivia why she is really there is the only option.

Linda, the girl’s grandmother, resents the intrusion in her home, to begin with of the security team. But based on certain things that happen, she recognizes the need for them to be there. The love Linda and her husband have for their granddaughter shines through pages of the book. I would love to read more books about this team of bodyguards. I have a feeling there is a lot more stories to be told.

This book illustrates the power of faith and family. So check it out for yourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from CelebrateLit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own. ( )

Readers are in for a treat with this romantic suspense. The author does a great job of slipping in surprises throughout the story. Carissa is a determined woman who will stop at nothing to protect her client. I don’t think she was exactly thrilled to find out her client she would be protecting was a stubborn young girl. I liked the idea of a bodyguard business and how dangerous it can be at times.
Olivia is a handful right away as Carissa comes in to be her “nanny.” I knew Olivia would figure out soon that Carissa was not really a nanny. The premise of the story is surrounded by something Olivia’s dad is working on. It reminds me of an espionage where the bad guys want to get hold of a secret and use it for bad. I hoped as the story progressed we would find out what was so important that people were willing to kidnap Olivia over. That was never revealed so I’m not sure if that was intentional or if it is addressed in the next book. One thing is for sure, I will be reading the next book to find out.
Marc was a good character but I thought his attraction to Carissa was a bit rushed. There were times when his attention was more on Carissa than his job. The faith element is good and I was especially pleased with one character’s desire to rededicate their life to Christ. That part of the story was well written and showed that God is always there to comfort us .
I had several suspects on my radar and couldn’t wait to find out if I was right. The author did a good job of throwing me off track a few times which made me read faster. It is a very clean read with intrigue that does keep you guessing. The ending is suspenseful and I loved how the author wrote Carissa as a strong female who could handle difficult situations.

What a fabulous beginning to a new series! Protection Inc. grew out of two law enforcement specialists that decided to go into business for themselves. Carissa and Frank have worked together for a number of years, so it was a relatively easy transition to a new line of work. Protecting a child, however, was new to them. Since her father is working on a super sensitive government project, ten year old Olivia has become a target for those that would prefer he doesn’t complete that assignment. But what on earth do you do with a 10 year old for the whole summer? After all, you can only spend so many days exploring tide pools!

Seemingly benign friends are introduced into the story causing the plot to thicken, leaving you wondering if they are who they say they are. Add to that an unpredictable child, and you have a mixture that is sure to become a disaster. Toss in a little romance, and you have a story you won’t put down until you have reached that last period. The stage has been set - hold on to your seats and be ready for a rough ride!

This books starts out with action, shots fired, and doesn't let go until the end.
Greed sure brings out the evil in some people and some the characters the author offers us in this read, sure hit the mark.
Ex-police officers have formed their new business in the first book in this new series, Protection Inc, and we meet the new bodyguards, as they begin their new business. We are given Carissa and Frank, well to begin with, more are added as the need arises.
This job involves guarding a ten year old girl, Olivia, and although she is a handful, she is smart and delightful! She does give them a run for their money, and we wonder as the story unfolds if they will be successful?
A great start of this new series, and am looking forward to the next chapter!
