Sebastian Reed is the owner of Reed Securities. His current assignment takes back to the field and away from his desk. Sebastian has been working 12-16 hours a day at his office to run his security business, but he rarely leaves his desk. He thinks that due to having limited eye sight in his left eye, he shouldn’t be in the field. Sebastian has no choice. All of his employees are already on assignment.

Now she was going to find out just how scandalous a bodyguard could be.
