Book Review: Accidental Shield by Nicole Snow

Accidentally married to a human stallion.
And I can’t even remember our wedding.

It’s awkward, okay? I didn’t plan on waking up hitched to Hubby of the Century.
Or one little misadventure erasing every memory of us.
No sweet nothings. No ugly cry vows. No flipping honeymoon.
But every time I see Flint Calum, I wonder.
How did I get so lucky?

Let’s forget all six foot something of his oh-so-bad superdad self.
His flashing eyes and SEAL perfected whip of a body aren’t why I’m dizzy.
It’s the bittersweet way he smiles when I poke at my past.
And something’s very wrong.

He tells me I’ll be fine.
He says he’ll get this sorted.
He promises to be my shield.
Totally not the pretender who’d scheme up an illusion to save my life.

Oh, but that’s the thing about memories.
Sometimes they come back with bitter truths wrapped in dilemmas.
What if I can’t stay mad at him?
What if I need Flint to hero me back together?
What happens when you fall in love with a beautiful lie?

Valerie Gerard just woke up in a strange man’s bed with complete amnesia, only to be told minutes later that he’s her husband. He’s gorgeous and sweet so being married to Flint Calum isn’t exactly a hardship. Except they’re not married at all, they’re complete strangers. This was a fun take on the fake marriage since Val wasn’t in on it and Flint had the best of intentions.

Her life is in danger and the former Navy SEAL just wants to protect her, but things keep getting more complicated. I loved everything about Val and Flint. She was so happy to become reacquainted with her life and confused as memories resurface that contradict the reality that Flint has presented. He went to so much trouble to help a complete stranger and worried the entire time he wasn’t making the right choices, but saving her is a chance to right a past wrong and it means the world to him.

Their attraction is undeniable but Val doesn’t want to draw him into her dangerous world any further and Flint worries he’s taking advantage of this vulnerable soul. The tension is excruciating and their chemistry is off the charts but wouldn’t giving in be the worst possible idea for everyone? There’s a lot of intrigue and suspense but it’s not really possible to give any detail on those aspects of the plot without being a spoiler so I’ll just say that I couldn’t put this book down and it’s worth every minute.
