She needs his protection…
But can he protect his heart?
Radio personality Kelly Bonner isn’t convinced she needs a bodyguard, especially one as intensely good-looking as Detective Donovan Walsh. Yet beneath Donovan’s tough-guy facade is a man struggling to raise his sister’s children. A man Kelly could care about…if he’d let her. Now she’ll have to find a way to convince her big, bad bodyguard that his family—and his heart—are safe in her hands.
“I don’t believe you aren’t good at everything and you don’t believe I’m as bad as I claim. That’s funny.” Kelly’s cheeks were hurting from smiling so much. “Maybe you can show me how to make something I can’t mess up. If I manage to make something edible on my own, it will prove I’m right about you and you’re right about me. We would both have to admit that you are good at everything and I am not as bad as I think I am. If I bomb, then you are right about you and I am right about me.”
The space between his brows wrinkled. “The way your mind works both fascinates and scares me at the same time.”
“I think that’s the perfect way to find out who’s right about who.”
Donovan leaned forward, his elbows on the table. “You could purposely ruin the dinner just to be right about yourself.”
“True,” Kelly admitted. “But then I would be wrong about you being amazing at everything. If you can’t teach me to cook, I have found your weakness. The beauty of this is either way, we’ll both be right and both be wrong. We’ll just find out about what.”
“Okay…” He took a sip of his soda and tipped the cup in her direction. “I accept this challenge.”
“What are you going to teach me to cook?” She was excited by the possibilities.
“You have to give me some time to think about it. I have to carefully consider my options so I don’t fail…or you don’t fail. Wait, who do I want to fail?”
It was nice to see him loosened up. She didn’t like it when he was all business. “Let’s hope no one fails, I guess.”
“I’m not sure I totally understand what we’re doing,” he said with a chuckle.
Kelly couldn’t stop staring at him. He had very masculine features. He had a broad nose and a heavy brow. His prominent chin was square and his jaw strong. In contradiction to all that manliness, his eyes were soft. In the sunshine, they were more green than brown. Hazel was such an interesting eye color. It was like he was a chameleon, able to change color based on his surroundings.
Donovan dropped his gaze. “Why are you looking at me like that?”
“Your eyes. They’re so interesting.”
“My eyes are interesting? Have you looked in a mirror? Ever?”
Kelly rolled hers. “I know, I know. Mine are unusual.”
His word choice made her cheeks flush. “Thank you. Some people think it makes me look cold. I always hear people say they look like ice. Yours are so warm. I’m jealous.”
“I don’t think they make you seem cold. Anyone who would judge you based on your eye color is missing out because you are quite the opposite. I’ve listened to you on the radio the last couple days, seen the way you interact with people. You don’t need to be jealous of my eyes. You are a warm person.”
Kelly took the last bite of her sandwich. This was why she was terrible at finding the right person. She found herself attracted to men who were wrong for her. Donovan was a perfect example. She was having these “feelings,” but he was a cop for goodness’ sake! Kelly would never end up with a cop. Never.
