Killer Curves by Naima Simone

Book Description

Lately, things have been a little weird for Sloane Barrett—late night crank calls, disturbing images inher inbox, her tires slashed. She tries not to let it bother her. She tries to pretend everything is ok. Then someone breaks into her house and attacks her...and Sloane realizes she needs professional help. Tall, gorgeous and overwhelmingly intense help.
But Sloane knows all too well just how much trouble intense guys can be.
Security Specialist Ciaran Ross's priority is to ensure Sloane is safe. His gut tells him she's in danger, but his feelings for her are pulling his focus. Ciaran has already made the mistake of falling for a client, and the results were disastrous. He won't risk it again. He can't. But running from love is the surest way to get Sloane killed...

Someone has been threatening Sloane Barrett.  She has been receiving threatening emails and creepy phone calls for weeks now.  And after returning home from her best friends engagement party, these threats turned physical when someone broke into her house and tried to kidnap her.  Turning to GDG Security Solutions for help, she is shocked to see Ciaran Ross, whom she met the night before.

Ciaran is just as shocked to see Sloane again too.  And when he learns what has been happening to Sloane he becomes determined to protect her from the threat against her.  And if posing as her "date" to her parents anniversary party is what he has to do to stay close to her body, then that's what he'll have to do.  And the longer that Ciaran is protecting Sloane and the more he gets to know her, another threat becomes clear to Ciaran... his well-guarded heart.        

But Ciaran has lost someone he was supposed to protect before and is determined not to let it happen again.  

While this book is called Killer Curves, there was WAY to much focus on Sloane's figure.  Literally, every other thought or sentence talked about Sloane's body (both negative and positive).  I got that Sloane was a stick figure LITERALLY from the first sentence.  And it just.... Didn't... Stop.  It was like beating a dead horse... Over and over.  It made me skip pages and just roll my eyes at the repetition.
