He will do everything in his power to keep her safe.

Paige Turner has known her fair share of ups and downs, but being dropped by her fiancé two weeks before Christmas has to be the icing on the cake. The young coffee shop owner is stunned to find her long-time boyfriend capable of such callous treatment, that is until ‘McHottie Coffee Guy’, aka Elijah Novak, takes pity on her and poses as her fake boyfriend.

Now, Paige has a plus one for her cousin’s wedding, as well as a bunch of rumors circulating that are solely directed at her. While she caters her cousin’s wedding, she juggles that with her growing attraction to the extremely hot coffee shop customer, and eventually finds herself as the target of multiple kidnapping attempts. When it turns out that Elijah is a retired assassin, Paige realizes he is able to help her in more ways than one, since keeping Paige safe has just become his number one priority. But who, exactly, is after her, and why?
