My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I made the mistake of starting this at 10:30 last night and finished it at 7:30 this morning. Not sure how many hours of sleep I got in between.
Ashlynn was kidnapped when she was 5 by a woman who worked for her father. After she was rescued, Ashlynn's family pulled up stakes and moved from California to New York City. Since then her father has been obsessed with her safety and protection, to the point where she has a live-in bodyguard, or "companion" as her family likes to call them.
Ashlynn's newest "companion" is a family friend from California, who made Ashlynn's life a living hell by teasing her relentlessly. Now he is 21, hopes to go into the FBI when he finishes his degree, oh, and he's gorgeous!
This was an incredibly cute, fast reading YA romance. Lots of sexual tension, but nothing more than kissing. Lots of action when Ashlynn does everything within her power to ditch her bodyguards. Lots of incredibly over-bearing parental supervision. It was a great break from all the net galleys I've been reading. I highly recommend it.
