The Praetorian by Dawn Chiletz
on February 23, 2018
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Prae·to·ri·an /prēˈtôrēən/- a skilled warrior serving as the personal guard of a Roman Emperor.
Bad-boy rock star Roman Creed keeps his secret locked behind a door.
When Seamore Productions offers to find him a new bodyguard through a reality TV show, Roman reluctantly agrees. He needs some good press and better security. The last thing he expects is a beautiful, curious cop to get under his skin and into his past. Why can’t he stop thinking about her?
Tough-as-nails detective Reed Manning keeps her secret locked away in her mind.
After being suspended from the police force, she considers trying out for the show. She’s supposed to keep her eye on the cash prize, but her potential boss captures her attention. What is he so desperately trying to hide?
When a single decision can change a life-
Never let your guard down.
Holy shiitake mushrooms! I am blown away right now! I just finished The Praetorian and I want to stand on a rooftop and tell EVERYONE to read this book. I have loved every book written by Dawn and when I read this synopsis I just knew I needed to read this book.
Once the Praetorian finally hit my kindle I devoured it. The twists and turns kept me on my toes and the romance was so well balanced that I was falling in love while trying to figure out what was really going on because, on the Praetorian nothing is as it seems.
Roman and Reed have both had rough lives growing up, but they have done their best to overcome their pasts. Roman is living in a constant state of guilt and won’t let anyone get close to him because of what happened when he was a kid. He has written song after song in hopes of ridding himself of the guilt and become one of the hottest rock stars in the process. Serious, Roman Creed is a real panty melter. Then you have Reed, she also had a past that was awful but she has become to cop to help others who have gone through the same thing she has and she is a bad ass. She is a true kick ass heroine and we need more like her in romance!!
The Praetorian is unlike any story I have ever read, outside of Dawn’s the Fabulist. Dawn owns the reality television romance niche! The way this story in alternating points of view gives you just enough while keep you wanting more. I had to force myself to sleep at night because I knew one more chapter would equal me getting zero sleep.
The Praetorian is my top read of 2018 at the moment. I try not to make these sort or declarations, but this one story that I will read over and over to see if I can find new clues that I missed the last time I read it. The Praetorian is a MUST READ!
