I thought Ramon was just another bad boy soldier with a checkered past. I thought I was done with guys like that. Guess I was wrong on both counts.After her last boyfriend, Lena’s sworn off men for a little while. She also swore off going outside, talking to people, or doing much of anything besides watching reruns and sitting by her familys pool. Its not much of a life, but at least its safe.At least, thats what she though. Her stepfather insists on getting her a bodyguard. She cant imagine why she needs protection, but its nice to have someone to talk to, and hes easy on the eyes, so shes not complaining.My objectives were simple. Keep Lena safe, keep out of her pants, and bail if things got too crazy. Now it looks like Ill have to settle for one out of three.After scraping rock bottom, Ramon thought hed finally found a way out of the hole hed dug himself. It was an easy job. Babysit a spoiled girl whos greatest dangers were sunburn and thumb cramps. He never expected to get locked up, beaten, tortured, or dragged into a drug war that made Afghanistan look like Aruba. Then again, he didnt expect to fall in love either.None of this was in Ramons job description. But he made a promise, and nobody is going to stop him from keeping it.I used to think I could keep danger at a distance by hiding behind high walls. But the real threat came from inside my own house. It was there all along. Thats how I learned the most important lesson of my life: Safe isnt the absence of danger, its knowing that you can do whatever it takes to beat it.
