StrongEnough-Cover-250wHow would I describe myself? Well, I’m Muse Harper. I’m a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make—abandon everything I’ve ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.

That’s when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn’t know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn’t all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I’d found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don’t know if I’d have done things differently.

Now, I have another choice to make—trust the man that I’m falling in love with and hope that he’ll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get. And is he strong enough to let her?

Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she’s ever met? And is he strong enough to let her?

My Review of Strong Enough

Muse Harper is an artist, a girl who paints to deal with her state of mind . The canvas reflects her feelings. Some of the good and the bad.
Her father is missing and she must find him that’s when she hires Jasper King. A man of many talents. His best talent to her is he is sexy as hell.

Jasper King, as a child watched his father do the unthinkable. His mom. He knows she loves him and his brother but she does nothing. She just waits. Waits till the next command from his father.

Jasper King will walk away from everything. The more time he spends with Muse the more he will questions everything about himself . What kind of person he really is? But he has orders. Orders he must follow.  He wants nothing more than to want her. He just can’t let her get in the way, but she will when she starts to figure out that, it isn’t all that it seems. Power and focus  is a must for Jasper. He needs the power and focus to complete his assignment. But can he can keep his head on straight or will his heart gain the power?

This is book is full of suspense and surprises. It’s full of hot romance, and every page there’s something that will make you want to read the next.

**** Four Stars for Strong Enough. What a page turner.
