A Just Deception - Adrienne Giordano

Book Blurb:
The protector: Peter Jessup, former Navy SEAL, currently employed by Taylor Security. He likes being the hero—in charge and in control.

His client: Lawyer Isabelle DeRosa. The sexy brunette is the personification of Peter's fantasies. She's willing to get physical but nothing more serious.

The assignment: When Isabelle becomes the prime suspect in the murder of her cousin, Peter is there to protect her and help her find the real killer. Their investigation leads to a big-name charity that seems to draw cultlike followers. Isabelle manages to infiltrate the group and become close to their leader, leaving Peter both jealous and worried for her.

As their search leads to danger, Peter realizes he's falling in love with Isabelle. He wants all of her, but she's too used to guarding herself to let him in….

In My Own Words:
While on a mandatory "vacation", Peter meets Isabelle, a tough attorney that works for her uncle.  Isabelle comes face to face with her worst nightmare, her cousin, and decides to take matters in to her own hands. She asks her friend, Vic, to help her.  Vic calls Peter who is in the area on "vacation" and Peter is more than willing to help, something to do besides lunch with the mother and sitting in the house.  The connection between Peter and Isabelle is almost instant.  When her cousin turns up dead, she is of course the prime suspect.  When the FBI asks for her help in infiltrating the group that her cousin co-owned, she sees a way to clear herself.  No way will Peter let her go alone, and no way with Vic let Peter not have backup.  With the trio headed to parts unknown, Peter begins to feel things he didn't know he could, and decides once and for all that he will do whatever it takes to keep Isabelle safe and make her his. get Isabelle on to that plan.

This is the 3rd book in the Private Protectors book, and I am really liking this series.  The characters seem so...real.  I felt a connection to Isabelle right off, and was very happy to see her paired with Peter.  A hard nosed ex SEAL that had a secret home life of his own.  The cult setting was creepy and you felt an instant hatred for the leader.  The secondary characters were great, of course we caught up with Vic a little, and meeting Courtney was a kick.  A girl with a chip on shoulder and a wicked tongue.  I hope this series continues, I can't wait to see what the author has in store for the Protectors.
