Love is beyond the lustful desire for a partner's stereotype. In a relationship where love abounds, boundaries are crossed to stay together forever. In this book, Reluctant Client by L.B. Brookes, Will shows his undeniable love for Allison despite Allison's stubborn and guarded nature due to her family's tragic past traced to Buchanan's curse. Allison separated from Will with the instinct that he was cheating on her. Moreover, Will was just faking a relationship with Nancy. Nancy is disgusted by Will's relationship with Allison and threatens her life. What actions must Will take to stop Nancy from harming Allison?

Will runs Guardian Inc.'s company. Jeff, who is the closest of his workers to him, possessed special abilities of telekinesis, just like Will does. Though what is more special about Will is his ability to read minds, Allison holds a secret that she does not want anyone else, including Will, to get a hint of. Just in time, she finds a picture that is capable of exposing her secret, and she immediately takes a run for her and her family's safety. Will Will find out about her secret? What danger is she going to face now that she's away from Will, despite the threat already placed on her life? Read this book to learn more.

This book was no doubt a fantastic read for me. What I loved most about this book was the way the author was detailed in her explanations of scenes, outfits, and locales. I was able to feel the connection and humor in the book. Nevertheless, I found some flaws in this book. Some characters in this book were not well developed. Characters like Sharpe, Senator Buchanan, agent Rebecca Patterson, and her siblings didn't seem to play much of a role in the book. Also, the book didn't give much information on Peggy, who I believe deserves that much. This book is in a series, and I believe as the series progresses, their roles will come into play. However, I felt like they were not very necessary to the book's plot, especially when it had to do with agent Rebecca Patterson. I found two errors in this book, which shows that it was professionally edited.

I recommend this book to people who love books about romance with a spice of action. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars for its captivating storyline and well-detailed nature. The flaws I witnessed are not enough for me to deduct a star from this book.

I love a good enemies-to-lovers story, especially when one partner is reluctant for a reason. Thanks for mentioning the danger element - that adds a whole new layer of tension. Thanks for the wonderful review.

just read this review and I'm hooked! The book 'Reluctant Client' by L.B. Brookes sounds like a thrilling romance with a twist. Will and Allison's love story is put to the test when Allison's past and a curse from her family's history threaten to tear them apart. Add in a jealous ex and a mind-reading hero, and you've got a recipe for a page-turner! I'm curious to see how Will will protect Allison from danger and uncover her secret. Great review, it's got me wanting more!"

Will and Allison's relationship is tested by misunderstandings and external threats, with Will's telekinetic colleague Jeff providing support. Allison's guarded nature and the revelation of her secret add layers of suspense, as Will endeavors to shield her from harm while unraveling her hidden truths.
