I received this Arc from St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review.
This is the third and (I think) final installment in Bella Jewel’s Alpha’s Heart trilogy. I’ve had the privilege of being asked to read and review each one so this review is bittersweet.
Delaney is a bodyguard. That’s right, a female bodyguard. She’s been taking crap for her career choice day in and day out but she’s finally crawled her way out of the muck and is assigned her first big client. Jaxson is a millionaire hotel chain owner. He’s a babe, he’s ripped and he’s in danger. Delaney takes on this case-bullets and all- with everything she has but that might mean taking him on too and not just until the threat is over.
You’re mine, Delaney. For as long as I can fucking have you, you’re mine.
This was my favorite book of the series. Hard to Forget had the best character building and the strongest plot. I found Delaney likable and was rooting for her from the beginning, to put it bluntly she was a more ‘human’ character than the heroines in Jewel’s previous two books. Jaxson has the typical macho male flaws but he too is intriguing and raw in a way that makes him seem real. I powered through this one in one night, a work night if that’s any indicator of what a fun read it was.
I’ll hang on, Mr. Shields, because I think you just may be way too hard to forget.
