Witness to Passion (Guarding Her Body #1) by Naima Simone

Under his protection and in his bed…

For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Unfairly fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family… Yeah, birthdays suck.

Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister’s reckless—and gorgeous—best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her…even if she objects.

The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers—and clothes—are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love…if they survive long enough to see it.

My review:
Fallon is having a rough 25th  birthday, she is running late for work, her boyfriend just broke up with her on Twitter and then she witnesses a gang shooting. 
Now she is being guarded by Shane , her best friends big brother.  The one she has crushed on forever but who has avoided her since she kissed him on her 18th birthday.  Yep birthdays suck. 
There is a lot going on in this story.  There is the past they share and the past they don’t share to get behind them so they can have a future. Shane has to pull the 2x4 out of his ass and Fallon has to trust someone other than herself plus they need to survive the attempts on her life or she won’t see another birthday. This story has humor and heartbreak and some truly steamy dirty talk and smoking hot sex. I really got a kick out of it and hope we get to see some of the other guys from GDG Security get hooked up too.
