Vanessa Smith has her heart guarded. She’s been married to a man that sleeps around and has made her think she’s ugly and undeserving. Everything changes when she is knocked down by the famous basketball player, Jackson Berrios. A friendship ensues and everything she thought she knew about men turns out to be wrong.
Jackson Berrios was out for a run in a new city when he made contact with the beautiful Vanessa Smith. He instantly knew she was different from most girls but can he make her see that he’s different from her cheating husband?
Guarded is a short and sweet Novella about a couple that literally run into love. I will warn that running is what this book does for a Novella. JD really puts a lot into this story and at times you are left saying OH MY that was quick but in all this was the perfect afternoon story that left me feeling all the right emotions. - Jodie (Goodreads)
I loved the title of this book it gave a big clue to the story inside. While I have read J. D. Rivera before I will be keeping an eye out for her in the future. I wonder where these two will be in a few years. I would love for a follow up novel set a few years down the road. Overall, this was a fun and charming story. - Victoria Rainey (Goodreads)
