Paige Albright, has met former Army Ranger turned security guard, Shane Elliot, before. But when they parted, Paige thought it was for good. To her amazement, he unexpectedly turns up in her life, but this time as an employee of her mother, who is a close friend to Blade’s wife Sierra – familiar faces from previous books. Now, after the death of her beloved father, Paige is due to inherit a fortune. Her mother, however, is not happy with Paige’s boyfriend, Russell, and feels Paige may just be with Russell because her late father liked him. She also wonders if he is truly right for her, and tends to think he is just with Paige for her money.
Enter sexy security guard Shane whose job it is to run background checks on Russell and get to the bottom of his intentions. Shane was not, however, expecting to get caught up in a romance, especially with the daughter of the woman he is working for. He’s been hurt before, and doesn’t want to feel that sort of pain again, but there is something about Paige which is tempting him to go further than work would normally allow. Only now that he has found her again he can’t as Paige is already taken. Now there are more reasons for Shane to want to catch Russell out than just being paid as this time it is personal.
This continuing adventure of the Grayson family now follows the Grayson Friends and first up is Shane Elliot’s story. I found the moment Paige and Shane meet again there is an explosion of sexual tension between the two and it’s fascinating to watch them together as their desire for each other grows. Of course, Francis Ray has thrown in the inevitable obstacles that the couple must face, and that is part of the beauty of her books; the ups and downs her characters have while travelling the stormy weathers of Ms. Ray’s plots. The Way You Love Me is a tender, yet intense romance that will tug at your heart strings. Francis Ray has excelled yet again, blending our well-loved characters with a new series for all their friends.
