Romance Book Review: Leave Me Breathless

Author: HelenKay Dimon
ISBN 9780758229076
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Kensington Brava


For readers who love a good romantic suspense you won't be able to put done, HelenKay Dimon's Leave Me Breathless should be your next pickup from your local bookstore.

Callie can't believe that someone as smart of Judge Bennett Walker is being so irresponsible with his own life. She has been sent to protect him from a stalker out to kill him, but he won't hear of having a bodyguard. When his brother overrides him and tells him he has no choice, the handsome Judge finally relents.

Ben thinks his brother is totally over reacting by getting him a bodyguard. The former solider turned judge is in top shape even though he has spent years in a court room. Besides the bodyguard is a barely there 120 pound woman, he'll have to worry about protecting instead of the other way around. To make matters worse she has no respect for his position and has a mouth on her as sharp as a knife.

The attraction between the Judge and Callie is pretty strong. Now if Callie can live through hours of tedious courtroom politics and Ben can get rid of his stalker they just might have a future together.

I loved Callie's sassy no-holds-bared attitude. She is the perfect counterpart Ben needs to keep his interest. Ben has spent too much time in the judge's seat and can't believe that someone would actually disrespect him the way Callie has. Callie just see another stubborn male in her mist. As with all of the HelenKay Dimon books I've read this past year, great dialog, sexy heros and an interesting plot keeps readers engaged. This isn't one to miss.

Permission To Approach

According to Judge Bennett Walker, trying to kill him is a dumb idea. They might make him wear a big black nightgown to work, but it covers a lot of muscles, and he’s definitely packing beneath it. He’s also an ex-prosecutor and an ex-GI Joe. So when his brother brings in Callie Robbins to protect him, Ben has a few issues. First, he doesn’t need a bodyguard. Second, she’s a 130-pound girl—more smoking hot than smoking gun. And third, what if his body wants her guarding the night shift?

Callie has no problem brushing aside Ben’s disbelief. She left the FBI to escape the boys’ club, but she can be deeper undercover and twice as lethal as any beefy John Doe. As for whether someone’s after Bennett or not, the death threats and car bombs look pretty convincing to Callie. Of course, she might get distracted, sitting inches from the sexiest judge in DC for ten hours a day. Keeping him safe is no picnic. Keeping it professional—that might be impossible.l
