Review: The Score by S. Nelson

the scoreTitle: The Score

Author: S. Nelson

Year of publication: Out today! I was kindly given a copy to read and review

The heroine: Socialite Cara Dessoye

The hero: Security specialist/bodyguard Ford Massey

The blurb: I lived life on my terms, keeping people at a distance for a reason. I rebelled every chance I got, shutting down any sensibilities that remained.

But then danger swallowed me whole, and all I wished for was a different life.

A life where I listened to the concerns of those who loved me. A life that had meaning. A life where I could follow my dream of becoming a designer.

Secrets would be revealed. Lies would be uncovered. But could I see beyond the deception? And could I step away from the past and emerge on the other side intact?

Standalone or series: This is book two of the Massey Security Duet.

The review: Part one ended with a huge cliffhanger, and I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say I was desperate for book two. I had some theories about several subplots in book one, and it was a nice surprise to see I was right about all of them. I hadn’t guessed the identity of the person making the threats that had necessitated the bodyguards in the first place, and that was an interesting surprise – something I think I should have worked out!

The slow burn romance between Ford and Cara heated up big time in this book and it was really well done. I would have loved to have seen more of the relationship between Owen and Emily, instead of being on the sidelines with Cara and Ford, but that is a really minor quibble. This duet is one of my all-time favourites and I know I’ll be reading them again.
