USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne continues the Safeguard Series with this fast-paced romantic suspense novel that leads the SSI team on the trail of a serial killer who continually seems to be one step ahead…

Coen Flynn has always done the right thing, even it meant siding against his own family. His sense of justice was what led him to take a job in law enforcement, though his choice of agency was a bit unorthodox. His current assignment was believed to be a simple protection detail. He was never supposed to be identified by his charge, but a murder took priority and changed the course of his mission.

Brettany Lambert's life is suddenly rocked when she finds the body of a dead friend on the eve of what was supposed to be a special wedding. Now Brettany and Coen are trapped in the middle of a blizzard and their attraction will fuel the heat of temptation. Good intentions always have a way of backfiring, but his desired intent won't matter if a notorious serial killer can finish what he started.

4 ice cold stars for HONEST INTENTIONS!

After finding her friend's dead body during a Colorado snowstorm, Brettany Lambert is completely devastated. She's so glad that state police investigator Coen Flynn is on the case. Coen hates lying to Brett, but she can't know that he's part of Safeguard Security and Investigations, the group tasked with locating and apprehending serial killer Shepherd Moss, the man he's certain had everything to do with her friend's death. Coen is sure that Brett could be Moss's next target, and if he needs to be a little circumspect about his true job to keep her safe, it's what he'll do. He doesn't anticipate developing feelings for the sexy schoolteacher, or just how much he wants a future with her. But he'll have to make sure he's able to keep her alive first.

HONEST INTENTIONS, book 5 in The Safeguard Series, featured MC's with names that my auto correct constantly fixed. It was super annoying. Anyway, I love this series. Ms. Layne has a real talent for fleshing out a suspenseful and sexy storyline that is irresistible. You could cut Brett's fear with a knife, but it was tempered by her curiosity and backbone. Coen was super standoffish and really unwilling to get involved with Brett, and I was bummed that we only got one yummy sex scene in the book. The ending made up for it though, since it was CRA-ZY! I didn't see any of it coming and it was soooo good! I can not wait for the next book in The Safeguard Series, Deadly Premonitions!!!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; some violence, lots of murder.
