Vanessa has been miserable and sad these past four years of her marriage. Having been married to a jerk who does nothing but criticize her her life is kind of lifeless. Until "He" comes into it. After Vanessa & Jackson collide .... literally..none of them know that they just found someone who they didn't knew they needed.Its after she meets Jackson that things start looking up for her.
Guarded being novella length I can't say much without giving away the story. But I will say that the chemistry between Jackson & Vanessa was electrifying. I enjoyed every single moment of Guarded. Despite of being short in length it still managed to feel like a complete novel. The characters had a certain depth to them that made me feel for them. It doesn't happen everyday that I feel what the characters do but when that does happen I enjoy the book even more. Guarded sure was one of them.
Overall I found this to be a really great book filled with emotions and most of all I loved the message it gave out. Never give up hope! Highly recommended.
