Witness to Passion by Naima Simone Review

Witness to Passion
Guarding Her Body # 1  
By: Naima Simone
Releasing June 16, 2015
Entangled: Ignite

Under his protection and in his bed…

For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Unfairly fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family… Yeah, birthdays suck.

Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister’s reckless—and gorgeous—best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her…even if she objects.

The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers—and clothes—are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love…if they survive long enough to see it.

So I have never read a Naima Simone book, but this book intrigued me and now I am eager to read more of these books.
Fallon is in love with her best friend’s brother Shane, but after a disastrous kiss, Shane puts up huge barriers after having more feelings than he realized. So for many years, Shane ignored her and that chipped away at Fallon’s feelings.
So when Fallon is in danger and Shane is not called until 3 months later, Shane is furious, so he drops everything and runs back to save her, But now Fallon has barriers up against him, and he is struggling to keep her safe, but no matter what he does, the vicious gang that is after her, keeps finding them.
So loyalties and lives are put on the line; and love and heat blooms. But when it is all over, who is friend and who is foe and what is left between Fallon and Shane.
So this book had me gripped like no other romantic suspense has had me gripped before. The story just has punches flying at you from all angles and at some parts it’s hard to catch your breath. The writing was smooth, characters well developed and overall the book was a joy to read
I give Witness to Passion 10 out of 10 and I am now going to read every Naima Simone book I can get my hands on!

Naima's love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey and Linda Howard many years ago. Though her first attempt at writing a romance novel at 11 never saw the light of day, her love of romance and writing has endured. Now, she spends her time creating stories of unique men and women who experience the dizzying heights of passion and the tender heat of love. She is the wife to Superman - or his non-Kryptonian, less bullet proof equivalent - and mother to the most awesome kids ever. They all live in perfect, domestically-challenged bliss in the southern United States.

Ignite Prize Pack including:  3 digital Ignite titles: Make Me Up by Avery Flynn, Fighting For Keeps by Seleste deLaney and His Last Redemption by Clarissa Yip. And a set of the Secrets and Sins series in print: Gabriel, Malachim, Raphael and Chayot (Intl winners will receive Ebook substitute
