Gwen has been receiving night visits off and on from a nameless lover, that she calls Mystery Man, for over a year and a half, but when her sister's troubles fall on her, she find out her Mystery Man is known as Hawk, knows everything about her and he has claimed her publicly, determined to protect her. Just as she learns Mystery Man's identity and becomes less certain about continuing the so-called relationship, two other men appear on the scene, Detective Lawson and Tack (head of the Chaos MC) and it suddenly appears the options are endless, but Hawk has other ideas. I wasn't sure about Gwen at first, because she is a bit ditzy, but in a strangely entertaining way, which grew on me. I wish she would have made better decisions and it seemed dumb to fight the protection she obviously needed, but I kind of got the feeling that if she had been smarter about things the guys wouldn't have been as interested, which gives me pause. Hawk was full out dominate alpha male and he was great except for the part where he dropped her just when she needed him the most. Luckily he redeemed himself. The triangle with the other men was amusing and there were brief appearances from characters from the Rock Chick series. Great Story with lots of action! The next book in this series is Wild Man, about Brock Lucas (Gwen's DEA agent kidnapper, Skull).
