Feature book: Husband Heel
Husband Heel by Louise Cusack
Louella Knight is the socialite of Sydney who is trying to keep her head high after her divorce from her husband, who was gay even before they got married. But his troubles keep coming after her and have caused her to hire a bodyguard for her protection. Louella had always been the one to keep her wits about herself and to show everyone that nothing bothers her. When everything falls apart she has her three best friends to help her but also someone she wasn’t expecting.
Nick Aston is a bodyguard who is used to protecting those who can’t protect themselves. He works in a successful security company and knows what danger is. He projects the typical bodyguard persona so that no one gets close to him and he can do the job he is paid to do. What he doesn’t expect is to find Louella Knight, and how she affects him.
In this book Louella and Nick fight their attraction for each other until they can’t anymore. There are many revelations on both sides and you can’t judge a person on their shortcomings or what they project, as who they are underneath is someone completely different. This is the third book in the series and you can see the characters develop from the previous books even though you only got a glance at them. The other three girlfriends, Fritha, Angela and Jill, all make their appearances and you get to know them even more from their interactions. What a great read and they are getting more interesting as the books progress.
