Who knew the world of chess could be so exciting! I loved this book from the beginning to the end.

I'm a huge Molly (Annabel ) Joseph fan and was excited to see her start a new series. Pawn is the beginning of her bodyguard series and while it's tough to keep track of new series this is one you don't want to miss.

Sam Knight is the bodyguard that has been hired to stay close to Grace Ann. He's a natural at his job. The military has honed his skills to become one of the best at Ironclad. Like the author, I too love bodyguards for what they represent. Their strength and protective nature make it easy to for their charges to feel safe and secure. He's also brave enough to swallow his pride for the women he loves.

How can you not love Grace. Sam says it best when he refers to her as adorable. Genius-level adorable, yet clueless. Her quirkiness is what I liked most about her as a character. There are times when her naivety reeks havoc on the world around her but these times only made me like her more.

Sam and Gracie are from totally different worlds but they are able to work with each other in creating a believable storyline that contained suspense, heartache and a sweet romance.It was a nail bitter until the end.
