The Most Important Catch by Jaclyn M. Hawkes
She knew too much, and she’d seen too much. And the police refused to help. Knowing that she was to be the next scheduled death, Kelly Campbell hid under head to toe black leather and a tinted motorcycle helmet and ran for her life.
When the weather turned cold, she turned south. She ended up in North Carolina, home to one of the most famed and eligible NFL football stars in the whole league; only she didn’t know that. She thought he was a businessman. Not being a huge fan, all she knew was that he was incredibly attractive, kind, generous, and that she was safe with him. Or was she?
His brand of fame proved to be all but deadly, but his fame wasn’t nearly as lethal as his attraction. He kept her safe and protected. All except for her heart.

My Review: The Most Important Catch by Jaclyn M. Hawkes
I have been reading a lot of her books the last few days. I have liked all of them so far. It does talk a little about LDS but not preachy. Is a clean read. Has some danger and tension. I love the characters.
Kelly Campbell is a nurse. She saw too much and realized her life was on the line. She went to the police but could tell he was not going to do anything about what she saw and knew. So she faked her death is on the run.
Kelly is 23 smart and brave. Her cousin helped her with old motorcycle and what cash he had. She took no id or credit cards.
She ran out of gas in middle of the country.
Robby Robideaux loves his career but hates all the attention he gets from women for the wrong reason. He is tired of the rat race. He buys a old run down farm house not far from the city. He sees the broken down motorcycle being pushed from a young kid in leathers and helmet. He offers to give him a ride. When refused he decided to go buy a gas can of gas and take it to him.
Later he sees him taking of the helmet and her lush hair fall down.
He talks to her at restaurant and feels like he should offer her the job of caretaker. Help him get the place livable. She accepts.
Kelly has no idea who he is. She treats him like a regular person. Robby knows it cant last for long but it is refreshing to him.
I just enjoyed reading about the characters. I like how Robby p
describes his job as a wide receiver and his friend the quarterback describes his job is funny.
I will keep reading Jaclyn M. Hawkes books.
