Minerva Coolidge, a top east coast lingerie model, has been ordered home to the west coast by her over-protective, occasionally psychotic family. Daddy’s outlaw motorcycle club is embroiled in a war and Minnie is too valuable a pawn to leave in play. But Minnie refuses to give up her new life. She’s about to star in the biggest fashion show of her career. Her brother asks an old army friend, Big Mike, to guard her until they can fetch her home. Minnie thinks Big Mike is too big, too muscled, too tattooed, too tough… too everything. He’s exactly the kind of man she moved across country to escape; the kind who thinks he knows what’s best for her; the kind who doesn’t belong in her glossy, perfect, new life; the kind she shouldn’t want…

Big Mike thinks keeping a nitwit fashion model safe long enough to hand her over to her family should be easy for an ex-biker, ex-Special Forces commander who outweighs his charge by at least one-hundred-and-fifty pounds. Except the pretty nitwit isn’t a nitwit. Each time he takes his eyes off her, she flees, plunging headlong into trouble. Big Mike quickly realizes he doesn’t want to take his eyes – or his hands – off Minnie Coolidge…

In On The Run (Big Mike and Minnie #1), Minerva – Minnie – is on her way to become a supermodel. When she goes home to the west coat, her father’s outlaw motorcycle club is embroiled in a war. Minnie is more than just a pawn in this game, and her brother asks an old army friend, Big Mike, to protect her. Minnie has her doubts about Big Mike: he’s too big, too muscled, too tattooed, and he certainly doesn’t fit into the life she envisions for herself. In fact, he’s the embodiment of everything she tried to escape from. Mike isn’t exactly enamored by the fashion model either, but when she shows she’s more than just good looks, he starts finding it more and more difficult to take his eyes off her.

The book has tons of humor, making it a delightful read. Big Mike and Minnie are off to a rocky start, but they both change and develop throughout the book, growing closer together.

A very fast-paced read with the characters stumbling from one situation into the next. A fun read, and I would recommend it for anyone in the mood for something light and witty.
