College graduate Judy stands ready to conquer the world... if she can find a job. Hoping to transition from aspiring architect to famous architect as quickly as possible, the dark-haired beauty moves to LA, staying in the home of her celebrity brother, Michael Wolfe. But it's hard for Judy to focus on work when the sexy bodyguard she fell for last summer keeps showing up in her life and leaving her breathless.
With his hard body, green eyes, and easy smile, Rick could have any woman he wants. But the Marine-turned-bodyguard only has eyes for Judy and her spitfire attitude. When a faceless villain attacks Judy, Rick will stop at nothing to protect the woman who has opened his heart from the monster hunting her.

My Thoughts :I know every time I write a review on Catherine's books I gush on and on about what a great author she is. I promise I won't do that too much this time.. Not that she isn't a great author- oh she is.. But I've reviewed enough of her books by now that you definitely know how much I love her. It's a love that is deep and true.
Again, each and every time I read a book in her series, I declare that THIS is my favorite book in the series. Well... uhmm yeah.. I can't help that she keeps making them better and better!! lol! One thing I always hate about a great book is that eventually it ends. It doesn't matter how well it ends, if the book is amazing (and Catherine's always are!) then I want MORE. This is what I love about her books -- each new book in the series still includes our previous couples. Not as a main role anymore, of course, but they are in there enough that we get to catch little glimpses of their lives and how things are going for them. That warms my greedy book loving heart!
Taken by Tuesday is Judy & Rick's story.. I've been waiting to hear their story since we first met them earlier in the series. Pair an ambitious college graduate who doesn't have time for love to distract her from her life plan with a determine Marine-turned-bodyguard who has been waiting for his chance to pounce on her.. I'm putting my money on the Marine any day :-) Judy is a lovely little spitfire who loves to hustle pool (although it's not hustling if they aren't playing for high stakes and always warn the people they are playing, right?!) and has more courage than most people twice her age. When someone begins stalking her, she has nerves of steel. Rick is determine to date Judy despite her constantly pushing him away- when he finally gets her to go on a date with him, she is attacked by her stalker. He is now thrust into the role of protector and also suspect (in the eyes of the police).
I felt like I waited forever but this suspenseful, sexy romantic novel was well worth the wait! These books just continue to draw me in and I can't wait for the next installment. While I sit here and mourn the fact that there should only be 2 more books in this series, I will begin to read the entire series over again - because yes, I am that person who re-reads her favorite books over and over again.. LoL!
