Emma Watts is 17 and due to all that's happened to her growing up, doesn’t believe in true love. She’s worked for two years keeping her deceased grandfather's P.I. business going by catching cheating husband’s in the act and providing a roof over her little sisters head..
She has a grandmother who is to busy with appearance, a new husband and society to take an interest and a mother who is hopping from broken relationship to another man continually.. Where would she ever get the idea that love is real?
Then enter Owen Emerson, handsome, debonair, and desirable! He claims Emma has inherited a deceased aunt’s (whom she never even knew) ability to match soul-mates. Emma is shocked! definitely not what she foresaw in her future and wants nothing to do with her aunt’s powers, nor with Owen.
But Owen has other ideas and as her "protector" he is sworn to be by her side for eternity... This is where it gets good!
Emma is a strong, feisty, definitely "negative-on-love" kinda girl - which made for a great lead character. growing up in a broken home has left disillusioned with love. Owen Emerson is a gorgeous, strong Protector who doesn't want to fall in love, is free of emotions and determined to succeed in the job fate has given him.
The relationship grew slowly and built on attraction and events. They were both stubborn characters, not willing to give in to the obvious attraction.
The support characters add a lot to the story... Overall, it was a very enjoyable read...
I really hope there is more to come in the future!
