The Most Important Catch by Jaclyn M. Hawkes
"She knew too much, and she’d seen too much. And the police refused to help. Knowing that she was to be the next scheduled death, Kelly Campbell hid under head to toe black leather and a tinted motorcycle helmet and ran for her life.
"When the weather turned cold, she turned south. She ended up in North Carolina, home to one of the most famed and eligible NFL football stars in the whole league; only she didn’t know that. She thought he was a businessman. Not being a huge fan, all she knew was that he was incredibly attractive, kind, generous, and that she was safe with him. Or was she?
"His brand of fame proved to be all but deadly, but his fame wasn't nearly as lethal as his attraction. He kept her safe and protected. All except her heart."
I enjoyed the author's writing style and voice. The story hooked me from the first page and even though it was a little slow through the middle, it kept my attention. Both characters were interesting and well developed. If I had to classify this book, I would call it a romance and that would be my only complaint. From the description, I expected a little more suspense and would love to have seen that part of the storyline developed more. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it for a summer read.
