In book 8 of the Kings of the Guardian series, we meet Jewell, the information technology guru of the family battling a computer hacker intent on destroying Guardian. Intense and driven, Jewell presents a tough and caustic exterior to those around her to mask her level of sensitivity and emotion. She is hell bent on shutting down the hacker no matter what to protect those she loves. Working around the clock, she pushes herself to the point of physical and emotional exhaustion. Zane, who had been assigned as her personal security previously, is called back in to protect her once the hacker makes personal threats against her. Zane sees through her facade and loves the real woman underneath. As they race to find the hacker and destroy the threat, they learn more about each other and themselves. Jewell is a unique character in that she fights battles via computers instead of with weapons. She is so focused on her computer work that her social skills and emotions have been stunted and buriedand in some situations, leave her completely baffled as to how to relate to and understand other's behavior. Zane is able to recognize Jewell for who she is and goes head to head with the other Kings making them realize how special she is and all that she does for Guardian. I love how Jewell had to find herself and recognize her feelings for Zane instead "insta-love". Along the way is intense action, mystery, passion and story development that flows smoothly throughout the book.
Zane has his own past to deal with and has to come to terms with it as well as fit into the King family structure all without backing down an inch to protect Jewell.
We meet some new and very exciting characters who really need books of their own! Without giving away too much detail, these new characters have a past with not only Zane but with another King.
All of the Kings including the twins are woven throughout with additional storylines being developed.
I absolutely LOVED this book and the epilogue has already hooked me and leaving me anxiously awaiting book 9. While I received an ARC, I also purchased my own copy from Amazon (note the verified purchase)....Jewell's book really is that good!!!
